What Is The Significance of Ministering Angels?

The word Minister means to serve or attend. Hebrews 1:14 accurately tells us the idea of ministry as service in a modern English style: “Therefore, angels are merely servants — spirits assigned to care for those who will inherit salvation” (NLT). Angels, therefore, serve and assist humanity when they minister to them.

This extract from the Holy Bible expressly refers to all angels as being “ministering angels” or “spirits” (Hebrews 1:14). This obviously alludes to the chosen, or “good,” angels who serve the Lord (1 Timothy 5:21).

Demons, or fallen angels, do not help or serve humanity since they work for Satan to obstruct the spread of the gospel and render Christians fruitless (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 4:4; 1 Peter 5:8).

What Is The Bible’s Definition Of Ministry?

Ministering is simply learning about and meeting the needs of others. It is performing the will of the Lord. When we serve others, we represent Jesus Christ and work as His representatives to protect, uplift, and encourage those around us.

Significance of Ministering Angels

Not all people are served by angels, but particularly God’s children who obey his words. Since we should put our attention on God and not be unduly interested in angels, the Bible is not entirely clear on what exactly their work is. However, there are at least two ways in which angels help God’s children.

The role of the angels appears to be related to how believers receive salvation in Hebrews 1:14. Therefore, the angels are involved in shaping events so that God’s elect will hear the Gospel and accept it.

In 2 Kings 6:15–17, angels guard the prophet of God by encircling a city. Therefore, angels help to keep believers safe from harm. The same is seen in Psalm 34:7 “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.”
