Angels are fascinating, aren’t they? As humans we speculate on them regularly. What do they look like? Do they have wings and halos? Can angels take human form? Are there guardian angels? The Bible mentions many angels, but the most important is the Angel of God.
In Hebrew the Angel of the God is mal’ak yehwah. He is the messenger of God; He is supernatural and identified with God. Generally speaking the Angel of God and the Lord are synonymous terms; they are one and the same. The Angel of God brings both good and bad messages to God’s people; He warns them of dangers (wrath to come) and blesses others for their faithfulness to God. The Angel commands God’s armies, directs God’s servants, and reconciles people to God. It’s interesting to note there is no mention of the Angel in the New Testament; He has become flesh as Jesus Christ.
