Angels are messengers of God and also fellow servants to God in the Spiritual realm of God as we are the same as messengers and fellow servants of God here on earth. We both think differently, but yet we are both a child of God prepared to be His Bride.

Blessings to you and your family also in Christ Jesus :wave2

Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Not sure where you are going with this. Angels have never been known as sons of God, but are ministering spirits that serve God.

The unnamed angels who appear most often in Scripture carry out a variety of tasks all designed to serve God so they are servants to God. You never know when and where an angel of God will show up and as Hebrews 13:2 says be careful for you never know when you are entertaining angels unaware.

They serve as messengers to communicate God's will to men. Angels gave instructions to Joseph about the birth of Jesus (Matthew 1-2), to the women at the tomb, to Philip (Acts 8:26), and to Cornelius (Acts 10:1-8). God has used angels to provide physical needs such as food for Hagar (Genesis 21:17-20), Elijah (1 Kings 19:6), and Christ after His temptation (Matthew 4:11). Keeping God's people out of physical danger, as in the cases of Daniel and the lions, and his three friends in the fiery furnace (Daniel 3 and 6).

Angels released the apostles from prison in Acts 5, and repeated the process for Peter in Acts 12. - Angels strengthened Jesus after His temptation (Matt 4:11), encouraged the apostles to keep preaching after releasing them from prison (Acts 5:19-20), and told Paul that everyone on his ship would survive the impending shipwreck (Acts 27:23-25). God often uses angels as His means of answering the prayers of His people (Daniel 9:20-24; 10:10-12; Acts 12:1-17).

Hi Sister for_his_glory, I'm sorry and evidently mistook what you said above "yet we are both a child of God prepared to be His Bride" as referring to angels and human messengers both preparing to be Jesus' bride.
Again I say that Jesus' angel/messenger in Rev 22:9 is saying that HE is our brethren, and a human.
Rev 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
Rev 22:9 Then saith HE unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, . . . .

OK, no, I meant that at least you and I are both a child of God prepared to be His Bride :)

I pondered over those two verses and I still see it as an angel because if it was Jesus He said that when He returns every eye will see Him and every knee will bow, but this angel is telling John not to bow down to him as he is a fellow servant/messinger in the same sense as we are fellow servants and messengers of God as we bring the good news to others of Gods mercy and grace. One is a fellow servant/messenger in the heavenly and we are fellow servants/messengers of God on earth to each other.

Philippians 2:5-11 refers to Jesus being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal with God and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: The only time Jesus ever took on the form of man was when He actually walked the earth in His three years of ministry. Being in the form of God is the Spirit form that has no flesh or bone, but when He returns we will once again see Him in human form.

Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Here we have one sitting upon the throne which is God's place of power and authority and unto the Lamb which is Jesus who also in the form of God is given all of Gods power and authority as all will bow down to Jesus when they see Him return.

You're right, but Jesus' angel is not Jesus, and in Rev 22:9 the human angel/messenger says that he is our brethren, and not to be bowed to. Anyhow sister, I enjoyed our discussion, and really don't care what others believe as to the end times; hopefully we care enough to be prepared. I continue to believe in Pre-trib of the 24 elders (Rev 4:4), and 4 living ones (Rev 4:6), Great Multitude as mid-trib (Rev 7:14), and the 144,000 mid-trib (Rev 14:1).
