  1. It is within my realm of understanding, imparted through Holy Spirit God, that not only are Angels real and present among us, they serve God. All serve God whether in Grace, coming in the Name of Christ Jesus, or fallen and serving as demonic messengers and “thorns in our side(s).

    To God, always, goes all glory, dominion, power and all servitude in Spirit and Love. Yes, “without being seen, they are present among us”. Not only as foretold, told and retold in Holy Scripture, but also in so many encounters, wittingly known and unwittingly unknown. Let us therefore praise Jesus.

    Lucifer, was the highest angel of them all. Angels were created all at one time, mature and fully prepared for service. Lucifer was the leader of the angelic choir. The highest form of worship is Holy Spirit anointed music and lyrics. Lucifer rebelled, was kicked down to Earth, for a time and is known as “the prince of this world”… a fallen world. He is the father of all lies…a liar from the beginning.

    There are many marvelous, unfathomable and currently inexplicable attributes and characteristics of the one, true, living GOD…triune eternally and born of flesh, 100% man and 100% GOD, the Christ, Jesus. That is, we see through a glass darkly, the half has never yet been told. It is shameful even to mention what evil is done in secret. We do not fret. The one God of all creation, FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT – One GOD loves all of his creation. Hell was created for Satan (the accuser of the brethren; our adversary, and the angels who fell with him).

    Hell was not created for man (all humankind). However, we were created with the ability to CHOOSE whom we shall serve, as were the angels. They have their own will, emotions, minds and they are asexual. AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, MY LIVING TEMPLE OF THE LORD..YWHW…YaWHeW…we will serve the LORD, who is Christ Jesus, and the Father and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s “job” is to glorify Christ! God Holy Spirit indwells believers. Salvation is for the world, Holy Spirit for believers. By the shed blood of the Lamb of Judah, who is the Lion of the tribe of Judah we come to the understanding that standing under the Cross of Christ is the only sure path to our Father GOD. Yes, angels are “kinsmen”, they are part of the family of God. I like to call it the “God Squad”. The future of the Church (the Holy Saints of our Lord, Jesus Christ) is secure; the future of the world is certain. Take heart, Jesus has overcome the world! “FINISHED”

    1. Thank you so very much over the past few weeks I’ve had some amazing wonderful things happening in my life and part of that is encountering and having a sort of relationship with these wonderful angels that are constantly appearing in my life. I too am a firm believer in Father God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Yeshua if I may and Heshim for the Creator and oh my my best friend Holy Spirit as well. But I do know that we do not worship nor glorify the angels. This feed back from you is almost border line confirmation from Heshim Himself as to what is going on with me. I’m transitioning into a more spiritual way of life where all I want to do is work for Heshim and Yeshua and God Holy Spirit. But it is very scary in a sense not that of actual fear but more of respect for what the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob is doing and continues to do in my life. Again thank you and may The Lord’s favor and Grace always be upon you

  2. The bright light is the Holy Spirit departed from man due to the sins of Adam and Eve.
    God said he will come as flesh and walk the earth after 5500 years. Man will shed His blood as they had shed their blood (Adam and Eve) and made an offering to God, and thus return Adam and Eve to their former Glory this includes their generations. Have we mankind repented and washed by the northern water to purify ourselves and gain the Lords holy Spirit?

  3. Thank you Aymen, and also Jeannete for the inspired commentaries. It would appear that the fall of man in the garden of eden and the fall of the watchers in taking wives of the daughters of men are actually one and the same event, narrated differently. Seeing Adam and eve, not as sole individuals, but as representatives of humanity scattered across the planet. after-all, where did Cains wife come from? And this perspective also eliminates incest as a probable means for the growth of human population.

  4. Aymen,correct, there are many different ways of looking at it. From a religious standpoint it has definition, almost limited actually. From the standpoint that the 9:levels, seals, hierarchies, veils, revelations, dimensions, chakras, etc… are unknown and Unknowable by any definition allows us to explore freely.Yes there are 9 planets and even 99…, and even 9 gazillion+ galaxies and possibly 9 times the universes have manifested life forms etc… what is clear, is that the human is obviously the interface of all “AS” Being. “The Being” that is all Being(s).

  5. This summary on how angels have been categorized has brought to light so many things that have been running on my mind.One thing that is still unclear to me according to this ninefold celestial hierarchy is
    Does Chief prince/Arch angel Michael have wings or not as they could be having glorified bodies(can appear anywhere and disappears anytime at their own will) that Lord Jesus came back with after he rose from the dead. No record shows they do i.e Micheal,Gabriel etc.And if they do kindly which verse shows that?

    If they don’t then they are ever with us (angels) but we cant tell who they are amongst us.

    This further describes the throne of God as frightening yet field with Grace according to Ezekiel 10,Ezekiel 6 and when you read psalms 18:6-24(this rightfully describes what happens in the spiritual world when Lord Jesus called unto the Father for been forsaken.)

    1. I think you will find the actual original descriptions of angels are nothing at all like what the traditional religious and artistic descriptions show. In fact most people would be shocked. Perhaps look deeper than the current man made religious narrative.
