The biblical description of angels in the Greek language simply means messenger. These Bible verses about angels will show you what angels are and how God uses angels even today.

I have never seen an angel but I believe in them. They are not, like some believe, the spirits of people who have died before us. They are created beings that have free will. The reason we know they have free will is because Satan and 1/3 of the angels rebelled and became fallen angels also known as demons.

There has been a lot of speculation concerning angels over the years and hopefully, these Bible verses about angels will put to rest some of the speculation and myths concerning angels.
