The speed of angels

Angels can fly even faster than the speed of light. We have a reference to that in Daniel 9:21,22 where it says “Yea, whiles 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. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.”

When Daniel started his prayer, God, instantly sent Gabriel who stands at the presence of God (Luke 1:19). How comforting to know that heaven can be made very near to earth. Whenever we need help and ask for it, the Lord commissions His holy angels to come to our aid without delay.

The nature of angels

Angels are different form of beings than humans. Angels are spirit beings (Hebrews 1:14) without real physical bodies. Angels are spiritual beings that can take a physical form. Although they do not have physical bodies, they have personalities. The Bible does not state that angels are created in the image and likeness of God, as humans are (Genesis 1:26). Good angels are sent by God for the ministry of believers (Hebrews 1:14).
