"Angels"

The subject of angels is fraught with inconsistencies, confusion, and incorrect teaching. Presented below are a significant number of Scripture verses that address this subject, along with the definitions of the actual original language terms so you can see for yourself what is correct and what is not.

It's very important that you seek to discover the Truth, according to YAHWEH's Word, concerning these very interesting beings. Don't believe all the "legends" and "myths" that float around in the various cultures of the world. Most of that stuff is pure fiction. And a lot of it is downright dangerous.

The very first thing you need to know is what the terms "translated" as 'angel' mean. There are two basic terms, one Hebrew and one Greek. Below are these two terms with their definitions from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.

H4397. JKDaVlAm mal'ak, mal-awk´; from an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically, of God, i.e. an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher):
            —ambassador, angel, king, messenger.

G0032. a‡ggeloß aggelos, ang´-el-os; from ajgge÷llw aggello (probably derived from 71; compare 34) (to bring tidings); a messenger; especially an “angel”; by implication, a pastor:
            —
angel, messenger.

Here's how those terms are "translated" in The King James Bible.

[KEY H4397] - mal'ak - 213 occurrences

                        ambassador                  H4397   mal’ak          JKDaVlAm                = 4
                        angel                              H4397   mal’ak          JKDaVlAm                = 111
                        messenger                    H4397   mal’ak          JKDaVlAm                = 98

[KEY G0032] - aggelos - 186 occurrences

                        angel                             G0032  aggelos           a‡ggeloß             = 179
                        messenger                   G0032  aggelos          
a‡ggeloß             = 7      

Note: There are a few additional occurrences, but they are odd "translations" of terms that are really not worthy of consideration on this topic.

Given the above definitions there are only two words that are translated properly, ambassador and messenger. It is these two words that are properly translated. One could also use the term deputy and be reasonably accurate to the original meaning of the Hebrew word.

 The use of the term 'angel' comes from the pronunciation of the Greek term. It "sounds like" angel, sort of. The process involved in this is what's called transliteration - taking the letters (and/or sounds) in the Greek word and simply transferring them into English, but not actually "translating" them. Thus ang'-el'os as noted above becomes 'angel(s)'.

You should instantly notice a problem with this. There is absolutely no Hebrew word that means 'angel'. The only Hebrew word "translated' as 'angel' is mal'ak, and it means a deputy, a messenger. Even James Strong got it wrong in using 'angel' in His definition. The only place that can come from is from the Greek language, not the Hebrew language. Such transformations of words should NEVER happen! But they do, and more often than you realize. It's a source of much confusion and error!

When we move to the Greek word we see a similar error. The primary and proper definition is a messenger.

Only by corruption does it become 'angel'. Then Strong gives us "by implication, a pastor:" Yet this word is never translated as 'pastor' in Scripture. Therefore, even that comment is misleading.

The problem appears to be one of eisegesis, inserting into the text what one believes rather than stating what the text actually means in its original form. This is a commonly used practice in the production of "Bibles" for resale. It's used to promote a theological position rather than the Truth of YAHWEH. What you end up with is a "denominationally approved Bible", but not a properly or correctly translated one. The evidence of this practice is overwhelming.

Properly, aggelos should always be translated as messenger. It should never be translated as 'angel'. Only in this manner does one remain faithful to the Greek term used.

Two Types of Messengers
Most people do not understand there are two types of messengers
            1.  Those that belong to YAHWEH.

                        - we'll refer to these as YAH-messengers as necessary for purposes of distinction.
            2. Those that belong to Lucifer
                        - The Adversary and leader of the "fallen messengers.
At the end of the list of scriptures dealing with
YAHWEH's messengers is a list of scriptures dealing with what's traditionally referred to as "the fallen angels" - the ones who rebelled against Him along with Lucifer. His "fall" was the result of
 His rebellion against YAHWEH in the midst of his arrogance and selfishness - wherein he sought to actually become (replace) YAHWEH.

YAH-Messengers were created by Yahweh:

Nehemiah 9:6: You alone are YAHWEH. You have made The Heaven, The Heaven of Heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them, and You preserve them all. The host (assembly) of The Heaven worships You.

Colossians 1:16: (speaking of The Messiah) because by Him everything has been created; that which is in the skies and that which is upon the earth, that capable of being seen and that not capable of being seen... 

YAH-Messengers worship YAHWEH and YAHUSHUA:

Nehemiah 9:6: – above
Philippians 2:9-11: Because of this YAHWEH has also highly exalted Him and granted to Him a name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of YAHUSHUA every knee should bend, Heavenly, earthly, and subterranean, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that YAHUSHUA, The Messiah, is Master, to the honor of YAHWEH, The Father.

Hebrews 1:5-7: Indeed, to which of the YAH-messengers did He YAHWEH ever say: “You are My Son. Today I have begotten You”? (Psa. 2.7) And again: “I will be to Him a Father, and He will be to Me a Son”? (2 Sam. 7.14) 6 Then again, when He introduces the firstborn to the world He says:“Let all the gods (elohim) worship Him.” 7 And of the YAH-messengers He says: “
making the winds His messengers,
those serving Him a blazing fire.” (Psa. 104.4)

YAH-Messengers are not worthy of worship:

Colossians 2.18: Let not even one defraud you of salvation, through delighting in false humility and worship of the YAH-messengers, intruding into that which he has not discerned clearly, puffed up without cause for the sake of his fleshly mind, 2:19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the entire body, through the joints and ligaments being supplied and being knit together, is growing by the growth of YAHWEH.

Revelation 19.10: Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Behold! No! I am your fellow servant, and of your kindred who have the witness of YAHUSHUA. Worship YAHWEH! Indeed, the witness of YAHUSHUA is the nature of prophecy.”

Revelation 22.8: And I, Yahonathan, saw and heard these things. And when I had heard and seen I fell down to worship before the feet of the messenger who had shown me these things. 9 But he said to me, “Behold! No! Indeed, I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers, the prophets, and of those who protect the words of this book! Worship YAHWEH!”

YAH-Mssengers are ministering vital essences:

1Kings 19:5-8And he laid down. 
And he slept under a certain juniper tree. 
And behold now! 
A messenger touched him. 
And he said to him, “Get up! Eat!”

     mal'ak - to dispatch as a deputy; a messenger specifically of God. 
     This is another word which is erroneously translated by tradition as 'angel'. The source for this "translation" is the Greek word aggelos,
      which is pronounced ahn-ga-los. It also means messenger.

19.6 And he looked. 
And he saw by his head a cake baked on coals and a jar of water. 
And he ate and drank. 
And he returned. 
And he laid down.

19.7 And the messenger of YAHWEH returned the second time 
And he touched him. 
And he said, “Get up! 
Eat because the way is too great for you!”

19.8 And he got up. 
And he ate and drank. 
And he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights, 
as far as the mountain of The Elohim, Horeb.

Psalms 104:4
making the winds His messengers,
those serving Him a blazing fire..

Acts 12:7-11: And behold, a messenger of YAHWEH was present, and a light shone in the prison. Then he nudged Peter on his side and awakened him saying, “Stand up quickly!” And his manacles fell off his hands. 8 The messenger also said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals.” And so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” 9 So he went out, following him, and did not understand that what was done by the messenger was real, but seemed he was seeing a vision. 10 Now having passed the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened up to them automatically, and they went out and proceeded down one street. And immediately the messenger departed from him. 11 And Peter, having come to himself said, “Now I truly understand that YAHWEHhas sent His messenger, and has rescued me out of the hand of Herod and all the evil anticipation of the Yisraelite people.”

Acts 27:23-24: Indeed, there stood beside me this very night a messenger of YAHWEH, to whom I belong, and whom I worship 24 saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Sha’ul. You must be brought before Caesar. And indeed YAHWEH has granted you all those who sail with you.’

Hebrews 1:13-14: And to which of the messengers has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? (Psa. 110.1) 14 Are they not indeed all beneficent natures, sent forth to minister for the sake of those who will be inheriting deliverance?

YAH-Messengers communicate the will of YAHWEH and YAHUSHUA:

Daniel 8:15: And it came to pass, when I, even I, Daniel, had seen the vision and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me one as the appearance of a man. 16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. 17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end will be the vision.

Daniel 9:21-23: Indeed, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, Daniel, I am now come forth to give you skill and understanding.

Matthew 2:13: Now having departed, behold! A messenger of YAHWEH was seen by Yoseph in a dream, saying, “Arise! Take the young child and His mother and run away into Egypt. And stay there until I tell you because Herod will seek the young child to completely destroy Him.”

Matthew 2:19-20: Then Herod being dead, behold! A messenger of YAHWEH by means of a dream was seen by Yoseph in Mitsraim (Egypt) 20 saying, “Arise. Take the young child and His mother and go into the land of Yisrael because those who sought the young child’s life are dead.”

Luke 1:19: And the messenger, responding, said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of YAHWEH. And I was sent to speak to you and announce to you these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26-35: Now in the sixth month the messenger, Gabriel, was sent by YAHWEH to a town of The Galil named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Yoseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Miryam. 28 And the messenger having entered before her, said, “Rejoice, you are being highly favored! YAHWEH is with you. Well spoken of are you among women!” 29 But having seen him, she was totally disturbed by his message, and deliberated what manner of greeting this might be. 30 Then the messenger said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary! Indeed you have found favor with YAHWEH. 31 And behold! You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son. And you are to call His name YAHUSHUA. 32 He will be great, and will be called The Son of the Highest. And YAHWEH, The Elohim, will give to Him the throne of His forefather, David. 33 And He will rule over the house of Ya’akob (Jacob) forever. And of His kingdom there will be no end.” 34 Then Miryam said to the messenger, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” 35 And the messenger, responding, said to her, “The Set Apart Divine Nature of YAHWEH will come upon you, and the miraculous power of The Highest will overshadow you. And consequently The set apart One conceived by you will be called The Son of YAHWEH.

Acts 8:26-29: Then a messenger of YAHWEH spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and travel toward the south upon the road which goes down from Yerushalaim into Azzah.” (This is a desert.) 27 And he arose and traveled. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch, an official of Candace, the queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come into Yerushalaim to worship, 28 was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. 29 Then The Divine Nature of YAHWEH said to Philip, “Approach and join up with this chariot.”

Revelation 1:1: The Revelation of YAHUSHUA, The Messiah, which YAHWEH gave to Him to show His slaves; things which of necessity will happen rapidly. And He signified it, sending it by His messenger to His slave, Yahonathan.

YAH-Messengers obey the will of YAHWEH:

Psalms 103:20-21Bless YAHWEH, you His messengers,
mighty of strength,
those doing His Word
as you are listening to the sound of His Word!
103:21 Bless
YAHWEH, all His assemblies,
those serving Him,
those doing His desire!

Matthew 6:10: Let Your kingdom come! Let Your will be done upon the earth as it is done in The Heaven.

YAH-Messengers execute the purposes of YAHWEH:

Numbers 22:21And Bil’am arose at dawn. 
And he saddled his she ass itself.  את
And he went with the nobles of Moab. 
22:22 And The Elohim's anger flared up because he was going. 
And
YAHWEH’S messenger stationed himself in the way as an adversary to him. 
And he was riding on his she ass. 
And his two servants
were with him. 
22:23 And the she ass saw the messenger itself 
את
of YAHWEH stationed in the way. 
And his sword was pulled out in his hand. 
And the she ass turned aside from the way. 
And she went into a field. 
And Bil’am struck the she ass itself  את to turn her onto the way. 
22:24 But the messenger of YAHWEH stood in the opening
between the vineyard wall from this side to that side. 
22:25 And the she ass saw the messenger itself  את
of YAHWEH. And she pressed against the wall. 
And she pressed Bil’am’s foot itself 
את  against the wall. 
And again he struck her. 
22:26 And the messenger of
YAHWEH again passed over 
and stood in a narrow place where there was no way to turn right or left. 
22:27 And the she ass saw the messenger itself  את
of YAHWEH. And she crouched down beneath Bil’am. 
And Bil’am’s anger flared up. 
And he struck the she ass itself  את  with his staff.

Matthew 13:41: The Son of Man will send out His messengers and they will gather out of His Kingdom everything that offends, even those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire. There will be lamentation and grating of the teeth.

Matthew 28:2-6: And behold! A great earthquake happened. Indeed, a messenger of YAHWEH descended from Heaven, rolled the stone away from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing white like snow. 4 And because of the fear of him the guards shook and became as though dead. 5 But the messenger responded, saying to the women, “Do not be afraid! Indeed I understand that you seek YAHUSHUA who was crucified. 6 He is not here. Indeed, He has been raised up just as He said. Come here! See the place where The Master laid!

John 5:4: because a YAH-messenger came down according to a set time to the pool and stirred up the water. Then the one who entered first after the stirring of the water became healthy of whatever infirmity held him.

YAH-Messengers execute the judgments of YAHWEH:

2 Samuel 24:16And the messenger stretched out His hand to Yerushalaim 
for the sake of destroying it. 
But
YAHWEH was sorry concerning the harm. 
And He said to the messenger, the destroyer of the people, 
“Enough now! 
Ease Your hand!” 
And the messenger of YAHWEH was beside the threshing floor of Araunah, the Yebusite.
    
Araunah means strong.

24.17 And David spoke to YAHWEH as he saw the messenger himself  את
smiting the people. 
And he said, “Behold! 
I have offended
And I have done wrong! 
But these sheep, what have they done? 
Please let Your hand be against me 
and against my father’s house."

2 Kings 19:35And it was on that night itself. 
And a messenger of
YAHWEH went out. 
And he struck in the encampment of Ashshur 
one hundred and eighty five thousand.
And they rose up early in the morning.
And behold! All of them were corpses.

Psalms 35:5: Let them be as chaff before the face of the wind
even a messenger of YAHWEH chasing them!

Acts 12:23: Then instantly a messenger of YAHWEH struck him because he did not give the honor to YAHWEH. And he became diseased with maggots and died.

Revelation 16:1: And I heard a loud voice from The Temple saying to the seven messengers, “Go out and pour out the bowls of the indignation of YAHWEH upon the earth."

YAH-Messengers Celebrate the praises of YAHWEH:

Isaiah 6:2-3Above Him were standing seraphim
Each one had six wings. 
With two he covered his face. 
With two he covered his feet. 
And with two he flew. 
3 And one called out to another and said, 
“Set apart, set apart, set apart is
YAHWEH of Assemblies. 
All the earth is filled with His splendor!” 
[Seraphim are a special class of messengers, generally seen as bright and shining, often associated with flames of fire. Cherubim are another special class of messengers, normally found guarding the Throne of YAHWEH.]

Luke 2:13-14: And suddenly there was with the YAH-messenger a multitude of a heavenly host praising YAHWEH and saying, 14 “Honor to YAHWEH in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to human beings!”

Revelation 5:11-13: Then I looked. And I heard the sound of many messengers surrounding the throne, the living animals, and the elders. And the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand; even thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is The Lamb who was slaughtered to receive power and wealth and wisdom, and strength and honor and magnificence and blessing!” 13 And every creature which is in The Heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are upon the sea and all that are in it I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and dominion be to Him who sits on the throne, and to The Lamb, into the ages of eternity!”

Revelation 7:11-12: And all the messengers stood around the throne, and the elders and the four living beings. And they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped YAHWEH, 12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and honor and wisdom and thanksgiving and preciousness and power and might, be to our Elohim into the ages of eternity. Amen!”

The Law was given through the ministering of YAH-Messengers:

Acts 7:52-53: Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They have even killed those who predicted the coming of The Just One, of Whom you have now become the betrayers and murderers. 53 Those who received The Torah by the arrangement of YAH-messengers, yet have not preserved it.

Hebrews 2:1- 5: Because of this it is necessary that we give superabundant attention to the things we have been hearing lest at any time we carelessly miss them. 2 Indeed, if the message spoken through YAH-messengers became certain, and every violation and disobedience received a just repayment, 3 then how will we escape if we are careless about a deliverance as great as this, which you first received as being spoken by The Master; and it has been confirmed by us to whom you have been listening, 4 YAHWEH also having testified even by signs and wonders, and by various miraculous powers, and distributions of the set apart Divine Nature of YAHWEH according to His own will? 5 Indeed, He has not subjected to YAH-messengers the world to come, of which we speak.

YAH-Messengers announced the following events:

The conception of YAHUSHUA in Matthew 1:20-21 and Luke 1:31.
The birth of YAHUSHUA in Luke 2:10-12.

The resurrection of YAHUSHUA in Matthew 28:5-7 and Luke 24:23.
The ascension and second coming of YAHUSHUA in Acts 1:11.
The conception of Yahonathan the Baptizer in Luke 1:13 and 36.

YAH-Messengers ministered to YAHUSHUA:

Matthew 4:11: Then the false accuser left Him alone. And behold! YAH-messengers came and attended to Him.

Luke 22:43: Then a YAH-messenger appeared to Him from The Heaven, strengthening Him.

John 1:51: And he said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, after this day you will see The Heaven opening, and the messengers of YAHWEH ascending and descending upon the Son of man."

YAH-Messengers are subject to YAHUSHUA's authority:

Ephesians 1:19-22: and 19 what is the surpassing magnitude of His miraculous power toward us who are trusting, according to the effectiveness of His vigorous strength 20 which He actively demonstrated in The Messiah when He raised Him up from being dead and seated Him at His right hand in The Heavens, 21 far above every first thing, and every privilege , and every force, and every authority , and every name that is being named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come, 22 and has subordinated everything under His feet, and has given Him as The Head over the entire assembly.

Colossians 1:16-17: because by Him everything has been created, that which is in the skies and that which is on the earth, that capable of being seen and that not capable of being seen, whether thrones or dominions or first in rank or authorities. Everything has been created through Him and for His sake. 17 And He is above everything, and by Him everything is held together.

Colossians 2:9-10: because in Him resides permanently all the fullness of the divinity bodily.10 And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality first in rank, rule and authority,

1 Peter 3:21-22: …because of the resurrection of YAHUSHUA, The Messiah; 22 who has gone into The Heaven and is at the right hand of YAHWEH, YAH-messengers and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

YAH-Messengers will accompany YAHUSHUA at His second coming:

Matthew 25:31-33: Now when The Son of Man comes in His splendor and all the set apart messengers with Him, at that time He will sit down upon the throne of His splendor. 32 And before Him will be gathered together all the nations. And He will separate them from each other just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And He will stand the sheep on His right hand but the goats on the left hand.

Mark 8:38: Indeed, whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and offensive generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the splendor of His Father with the set apart messengers.”

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10: and to repay you who are being troubled with relief among us at the revelation of The Master, YAHUSHUA, from Heaven with His mighty messengers; 8 in blazing fire delivering retribution upon those who do not recognize YAHWEH, and upon those who are not paying attention to the good news of our Master, YAHUSHUA, The Messiah. 9 These will pay the price of justice by means of eternal destruction away from the presence of YAHWEH and away from the magnificence of His might 10 when He comes; being honored by His set apart ones and being marveled at by all those who are trusting at that time, because our testimony concerning Him has been believed.

YAH-Messengers delight in the gospel of YAHUSHUA:

Ephesians 3:8-12: To me, who am less than the least of all the set apart ones, this favor was granted, that I should proclaim among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of The Messiah, 9 and to illuminate for everyone what is the partnership of the mystery, which from eternity has been concealed by YAHWEH, who created everything through YAHUSHUA, The Messiah; 10 in order that now the many variations of the wisdom of YAHWEH might be made known through the assembly to the chief rulers and authorities in The Heavens, 11 according to the eternal proposal which He accomplished in The Messiah, YAHUSHUA, our Master, 12 by whom we have boldness and access in confidence because of His faith.

1Timothy 3:16: And without controversy great is the mystery of deep devotion to YAHWEH. The Elohim has been rendered apparent in flesh, rendered just in nature, gazed upon by YAH-messengers, proclaimed by Gentiles, believed on in the world, taken up into honor.

1Peter 1:12: To them it was revealed that not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been announced in detail to you through those who have proclaimed the good news to you through The Set Apart Divine Nature of YAHWEH sent from Heaven, things which YAH-messengers long to look into.

YAH-Messengers rejoice when one sinner repents:

Luke 15:10: Likewise, I say to you joy happens in the presence of the messengers of YAHWEH over one sinner who repents.

YAH-Messengers keep watch over the children of YAHWEH:

Psalms 34:7The messenger of YAHWEH
encamps all around those revering Him.
And he delivers them.

Psalms 91:9-12Indeed, You Yourself את, YAHWEH 
are My refuge!
You have established The Most High,
as your dwelling place,
91:10 No harm will happen to you,
and a plague will not come near your tent 
91:11 because He will give direction to
His messengers concerning you, 
for the sake of protecting you in all your ways. 
91:12 Upon their hands they will lift you up 
lest you strike your foot against a stone.

Daniel 6:22: My Elohim (god) has sent His messenger, and has shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before Him innocency was found in me; and also before you, O king, have I done no hurt.

Matthew 18:10: Pay attention that you do not despise one of these little ones. Indeed I say to you that in The Heavens their messengers are always looking at the face of My Father who is in The Heavens.

YAH-Messengers belong to a different order of creation than man:

Isaiah 6:1-2  In the year of King Uzziyahu's death, \
then I saw YAHWEH Himself את
sitting on a throne,
exalted and lifted up. 
And the hem of His robe filled The Temple itself את
2 Above Him were standing seraphim. 
Each one had six wings. 
With two he covered his face. 
With two he covered his feet. 
And with two he flew.

1 Thessalonians 4:16: because The Master Himself will descend from The Heaven with a shout, with the sound of a chief
 
YAH-messenger, and with the trumpet of YAHWEH, and the dead in The Messiah will be raised up first.

1 Peter 3:22: Who is gone into Heaven, and is at the right hand of YAHWEH, messengers and authorities and powers having been made subject unto Him.

Jude 1:9: Yet Michael, the chief YAH-messenger, while opposing the false accuser when he disputed about the body of Moshe dared not bring against him a reviling condemnation, but instead said, “YAHWEH rebuke you!”

Revelation 12:7-8: Then warfare happened in The Heaven. Michael and his messengers battled with the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers battled, 8 but they had no strength, nor was a place found for them in The Heaven any longer.
(Note the reference here to the messengers of the dragon. There are bad-messengers also.)

YAH-Messengers are innumerable:


Job 25:3: Is there any number of his hosts?

Hebrews 12:22: On the other hand, you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of The Living Elohim, to The Heavenly Yerushalaim, and to a myriad of YAH-messengers,

These are the activities of YAHWEH's true messengers.
If you encounter anything else rest assured it is not of YAHWEH. There is another category of messengers - see below.

FALLEN MESSENGERS:

These are the former YAH-Messengers who rebelled against Him and were cast out of The Heaven along with Lucifer (Satan).

Isaiah 14:12-15:   How you have fallen from The Heavens, 
Morning Star, son of the dawn! 
You have been cut down to the ground, 
you who weakened the nations! 
13 And you yourself את have said in your heart, 
‘I will ascend to The Heavens! 
Higher than the stars of The El I will raise up my throne!
And I will sit on the mountan of assembly 
on the borders of the north! 
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. 
I will be as The Elyon (The Highest)! 
15 However, to She'ol you have been brought down, 
to the borders of The Pit.

Jude 6: Even the messengers who did not protect their beginning, but instead abandoned their own dwelling place He has imprisoned with everlasting chains under gloom until the judgment of the great day.

Luke 10.18: And He said unto them, I beheld The Adversary falling like lightning from The Heaven.

Revelation 12.7-9: Then warfare happened in The Heaven. Michael and his messengers battled with the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers battled, 8 but they had no strength, nor was a place found for them in The Heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was thrown out, the ancient serpent called The Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.

2 Peter 2.4: Indeed, if YAHWEH did not spare the messengers who sinned, but instead has incarcerated them in eternal torture having delivered them into chains of gloom, to be guarded until judgment,

Matthew 25.41: Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Go away from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the false accuser and his messengers.

Genesis 6.1-5: And it was when human beings began to multiply on the surface of the soil. And daughters were born to them. 2 And the divine beings (fallen YAH-messengers) saw the daughters themselves of the human beings, that they themselves were beautiful. And they took for themselves women, any whom they chose. 3 And YAHWEH said, My breath will not remain in a human being forever, inasmuch as he exists as flesh. Now his days will be a hundred and twenty years." 4 The Nephilim existed on earth in those days; and also after that, who went in to the daughters of human beings. And they bore to these same ones the                                                    mighty ones of old, men of "ha-shem" renown. 5 And YAHWEH saw that abundant harm of the human being was in the land, and that every form of the contrivances of his heart was only bad all the day.

Note: The divine beings' referred to in this last passage are actually fallen messengers who left their first estate (Heaven) and came to earth. Here they actually took women from among the people on earth and had children with them. These children are the source of the "giants" - actually a unique race often referred to as the Nephilim. They were half human, half supernatural. It was some of these offspring that David fought and killed (Goliath). This is NOT a 'fairy tale'. It is recorded as absolute Truth in The Word of YAHWEH. These were known as men of the name, renown, and are the source of the mythological heroes of old. Sadly, the term, ha-shem, has been transformed into a replacement for the name, YAHWEH, by His own chosen people.

2 Corinthians 11.13-15: Indeed, such are false ambassadors, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into ambassadors of The Messiah. 14 And this is nothing to be wondered at because Satan himself disguises himself as a messenger of illumination. 15 Accordingly, it is no great thing if his servants are also disguised as servants of right actions, whose end will be according to their works.

We must be careful not to confuse YAHWEHtrue messengers with those that pretend to be His angels, or with fallen angels - harmful, demonic beings. The potential consequences can go far beyond what you might think. In these days we are warned that some will come to us "masquerading as angels of light" - to deceive even the elect of YAHWEH, if possible.
