Angels are created spiritual beings. They have not always existed but are part of God’s creation of the universe and are part of His Purpose. Angels are “spirits” without physical bodies yet are highly intelligent and are capable of having moral judgment and free will. The apostle Paul tells us in Col. 1:16,
For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him and in and for Him.
