The Hebrew term for angels is malakh (plural form –malakhim) which refers to messenger. Angels are frequently described as messengers or servants who do tasks for God. Most people think of these mystic beings as mediators between the Supreme Creator and mankind. For children, an angel is a beautiful woman, handsome man or innocent-looking children who sing in heavenly choirs. God’s messengers are the nemesis of Satan and his devils.
These cherubim or seraphim are just souls or spirits who never lived physical lives and serve as sentinels for God the Father. They only seek to carry out the orders of God and vary in physical form. The cherub can be male or female but only in the minds of humans. In short, the angel serves as bond between mankind and the Creator of men. For Roman Catholics, these mystical guardians are different in many aspects. The common denominator among Christians, Muslims and other primary religions is that these intermediaries from heaven are more of good spirits that fight the bad spirits which are the devils.
Angels wear immaculate white robes with wings and sometimes, halos on the head and surrounded by a radiant illumination. According to the Holy Bible, angels are not glorified beings. They do not produce offspring or marry like ordinary people. The Old Testament even says that when you go to Heaven, you will be met by a multitude of these good spirits and escorted before God’s throne. This is what Dr. Paul Eymann of www.christiananswers.net has to say about these creatures:
“Angels are essentially “ministering spirits,” (Hebrews 1:14) and do not have physical bodies like humans. Jesus declared that “a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” (Luke 24:37-39). The Bible does, however, make it clear that angels can only be in one place at a time. They must have some localized presence.”
