A lot of what we know about angels is speculation. Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon shows that the word angel comes from a Hebrew transliteration of the word malak, an unused root meaning, “(to) dispatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically, of God i.e. an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher): ambassador, angel, king, messenger.” An angel in the Bible is a
messenger from God, sometimes they are spiritual beings, sometimes they are human beings. There are only three supernatural angels whose proper names are mentioned in the Bible: Lucifer, Michael, and Gabriel. There are also only three kinds of supernatural angels named: archangels, cherubim, and seraphim. We know a bit more about cherubim: God placed cherubim at the Garden of Eden, cherubim are around God’s throne, and are depicted on the Ark of the Covenant. Remember that in the book of Revelation, John is specifically warned not to worship the majestic angel he encounters, but to only worship God.
