The heavenly angels gladly and completely do the bidding of God. Psalm 103:20-21 states,

"Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts, ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure." Their purpose is to do His commandments, hearken to His voice, and do His pleasure.

Consider why a good man and woman decide to make their own child, and you can better understand why God decided to make man. God created angels to minister to him, and he made man to glorify him. Not all the angels failed the duties, but only 1/3 of the angels rebelled against their Maker, and thus were thrown out of heaven along with Satan their foolish ringleader and deceiver. Please Read- Revelation 4:11.

Job 38:4-7 describes the angels worshipping God as He was creating the world Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone - while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

Angels are the [sons] of God, Created for Heaven before earth ever came into being.

Just two examples:

Psalms 91:11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.

Psalms 103:20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!

The answer is simple... but deep. God made the angels, and then man, because it pleased Him to do so. His ways are not ours. We cannot begin to wrap our finite minds around why God has done anything. We trust His word - and to try to use our limited reasoning to disect His is arrogant and rather foolish.

Angels have several purposes: worship God, do warfare on our behalf, and protect us.

emg, I try very hard to not "misuse" the word of God. I, unlike others, do make mistakes but in this case, please consult a Strong's or other Hebrew/Greek dictionary. As some examples I offer 2Sam.14:17,20 & 19:27 as well as Rev.2:1,8,12,18; 3:1,7,&14. Many times pastors or elders were referred to as the angels(messengers) to the church. Thank you for your kind diligence to the Word.

Mikefl where does it say that there are earthly angels and that these are ministers of God's word. Is this just your own misuse of the word angel or will you show me where you got this idea? As far as I'm aware angels and men are two entirely different creations and one can never be the other.

There are angels from heaven; different from human "angels"; both being messengers of God. The heavenly are beings (not human) that have a specific task, such as those who God sent to Lot and his family. There are earthly angels such as ministers of God's word. Mankind was not created to replace the heavenly angels but to represent an image of God with God's attributes. Man was meant to be a reflection of God on earth.

Heb. 1:14 They are all ministering spirits to us who are heirs of salvation.

scripture tells us that they are messengers,an angel visited mary and a number of people in the okld testament to bring messages dirwectly from God.they also do battle for God.they testify in heaven about the saved and shout the glory of God.

For the same reason He made human beings: so He could love them and be loved in return--not for HIS benefit, but our own and their own.
