Angels are holy, for they are called “holy angels” (Matthew 25:31; Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26; Revelation 14:10); however, the Scripture says that God “charges His angels with error” (Job 4:18 - NKJV).

Angels are obedient, as it is written: “Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word” (Psalm 103:20). They are called “elect angels” (1 Timothy 5:21) to distinguish them from the angels who rebelled against God.

Angels are wise and intelligent; however their intelligence and knowledge are limited. For it is written that they don’t know the day or the hour of the return of Christ from heaven (Mark 13:32) and that they desire to look into the things pertaining to the kingdom of God (1 Peter 1:12)

Angels are powerful, for it is written: “They excel in strength” (Psalm 103:20). However, their power is limited, for only God possesses the attribute of omnipotence. They are “greater in power and might” (2 Peter 2.11) than the dignitaries (Satan and the demons), yet they don’t bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord (2 Peter 2:11; Jude 9). This shows that they are also humble.

Angels worship God, as it is written: “The host of heaven worships You” (Nehemiah 9:6 – NKJV), and the Son of God who is at the right hand of God the Father (Revelation 5:11-12), for God has commanded His angels to worship His Son, as it is written: “And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him” (Hebrews 1:6).

Angels takes pleasure in the works of God and in His grace, for – as we saw before - when God laid the foundations of the earth they all “shouted for joy” (Job 38:7), and when one sinner repents of his sins and believes the Gospel, they rejoice over him, as Jesus said: “There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth” (Luke 15:10)
