7 thoughts on “What is the Different between angels and arch angels?

  1. same as between bishops and arch bishops. arch angles control more regular angels.

  2. Being Jewish I view all angels are similar. In Judaism angels do not have free will and do their jobs according on how they were created by G-d. I believe Islam have similar views on Angels but differ on Satan. In Christianity angels are viewed completely opposite.

  3. >Rank. But you see, it all has to do with responsibility. That is all. Archangels aren’t any better than regular angels. All are equally loved by God. All serve God in the capacities they are given. Rank does not mean “better” you see. Rank just denotes who has what responsibility. All angels have responsibilities because ALL angels have one purpose – to be messengers.

  4. Colossians 1 (Amplified Bible) 16For 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 [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him.

    Angelology
    The Hierarchy of Angels
    From Seraphim to Guardian Angels
    Angelology by the great religious thinkers of many of the major faiths have given a structure or rank to the heavenly society. Their angelology and the hierarchy of angels each rank angels according to their power and authority from the highest Seraphim to the last choir, the Guardian Angels.

    Even Billy Graham in his book Angels, Gods Secret Agents agrees there is an order among the angels.

    The angelic hierarchy that follows is based on the Celestial Hierarchy written by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite a Syrian who lived about A.D.500.

    It is the most quoted and used angelic hierarchy in Christian angelology.
    There are three hierarchies and nine choirs in the angelic society. They are in descending order of their closeness to God.

    The First Hierarchy – those closest to God Seraphim – the first choir
    Cherubim – the second choir
    Thrones – the third choir

    Of these three holy choirs which one do you think would be described as “the holy beast”. I will give you a clue – guards the entrance to the Garden of Eden. This angelic choir surrounds the throne of God and constantly sing the trisagion (“holy, holy, holy”). They are the angels of love, light and fire “the burning ones” The angels of the second hierarchy are not very well known. They are kinda like the second or middle child in a family. They receive their commands from God through the Seraphim and Cherubim, the first children. Even though they are quite and have very little contact with mortals God has given them tremendous responsibilities.

    The Second Hierarchy are the priest, princes or lords of the court
    Dominions – the fourth choir
    Virtues – the fifth choir
    Powers – the sixth choir
    One these choirs is responsible for not only keeping order in the universe but also for assigning all of the other angels their duties. Which one of the choirs, the Dominions, the Virtues or the Powers do you think are charged with keeping demons from totally infiltrating the world and guarding the pathway to heaven? One of these choirs, and if you clicked on the other two you already know the answer, are the angels of encouragement. They gave David the courage to pick up a small stone put it in his sling shot and face a giant all by himself. The Third Hierarchy – those closest to humanity

    Of all the celestial beings in angelology, we are more familiar with the angels of the 3rd hierarchy which includes the 7th, 8th and 9th choirs.

    I guess this may be what God intended since these choirs have direct contact with us.
    Principalities, the seventh choir what do you really know about them? Are they friend or foe, demon or angel? There seems to be some question on this.
    The Archangels, the 8th choir The archangels are the chief angels and the warrior angels. I know you can name three of them but can you name the other four? Which archangel holds the keys to hell? Who is known as “beauty of God”? Which one is known as “righteousness of God? Which one is known as “he who seeks God?

    Angels, the ninth choir, last but certainly not least, Why are they the last? Because they are the closest to humanity. This choir contains all the angels including our guardians. If you are curious as to how many angels there are or if you have ever wondered what language they speak, I think you will find some of your answers here. +++”Archangels The Warriors and Deliverers of Divine Justice
    Archangels are the chief princes, principals or great angels. They are the mightiest of the mighty. They are God’s messengers of Divine Decrees, deliverers of justice, and the ultimate warriors of God’s armies.

    It will be the voice of Michael that will be heard on judgment day while Gabriel blows a trumpet.

    Depending on which source you read or have been taught in your religion there are quite differing opinions as to how many archangels there are. Each religion has a number of either four, six, seven or nine archangels. ——CONTINUED—–

  5. Daniel 10 V.13″But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold. Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me (Daniel), for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. V. 21 “But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. (No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince. To get the whole story it would be good to read Daniel 10. The prince…persia would be the head of the spiritual forces marshaled on behalf of sinful Persia, especially in relation to its destructive interaction with God’s people.

    Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” Jude verse 9

    The word “archangel” means to be first (in political rank or power),” indicating that this is the highest rank of heavenly hosts. The only archangel specifically in the Scriptures is Michael. It is likely his shout we will hear at the Second Coming (1 Thess. 4:16. Because Gabriel is prominent in the Bible and also because his name is derived from a root word meaning “strength’ or “chief” (politically), which is characteristic of archangels, some conclude that he is also an archangel. This opinion, although not supported by Scripture, was popularized by the poet John Milton.
    Many scholars hold that Lucifer was an archangel before his fall (Ezek. 28). However, this is only speculation based on the position and influence he held over the angels who fell with him. (Gen. 3:24 / Isa. 14:12-14)

    All angel’s have a different role. Some stay around the throne of God singing Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God. Some are sent to protect us and do warfare for us, some to minister to us. They all serve the Lord and obey Him.
