Angels are spirits. Sometimes the Bible calls them flames of fire. God sends them to minister to, and for us. “Who makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire” (Hebrews 1:7). The Bible also refers to angels as sons of God. “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them” (Job 1:6).

While the Bible does not tell us exactly when God created these angelic beings, it appears they were created before the earth. The very first verse in the Bible gives us some indication as to when God made angels. “In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). This refers to the universe which would include the different galaxies and solar systems and heavenly beings. Since angels are heavenly beings, this would imply that they came into existence when God created the heavens
