6. ANGELS (part 3)

When were the angels created?

They were probably created before the earth existed.

Job 38:4-7
4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone,
7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

There are many who believe that ‘the morning stars‘ and ‘the sons of God‘ are angels.

How many angels are there?

Let’s establish the fact that they are tremendously many.

Rev. 5:11
Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,

If we take this scripture literally, we can calculate as follows:

10 000 x 10 000 + 1 000 x 1 000 = 101 000 000

If we keep in mind that one third of the angels were cast out from heaven, we realize that the angels who are spoken of in Rev 5:11 are the remaining two thirds.

Don’t take the mentioned calculation too literally. There are probably many more angels than that!
