Angelic beings

Learn about Angelic beings :

We inhabit a world of boundless variety and beauty. The Book of Nature is written within and without with truths fitted to elevate as well as to awe the mind. All that we see around us illustrates the infinite resources of an Omnipotent Creator, who ” spake, and it was done,” who ” commanded, and it stood fast/' The beauties of nature are eloquent, not only touching the Divine power, but the Divine love also, which willed a universe into being, that He might lavish upon it the proofs of an infinite affection. When we speak of creation, we mean not simply the  objects of sense ; not merely the system of worlds, compared with which our planet is little more than a large  aerolite; not exclusively the material heaven, or the earth and those who people it. We include that vast multitude of Intelligences who have no bodily form,—none at least that our present eyesight can discern—beings who ” excel in strength,” as God's word declares, and in wisdom also, for they ” do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word.

We include that vast multitude of Intelligences who have no bodily form,—none at least that our present eyesight can discern—beings who ” excel in strength,” as God’s word declares, and in wisdom also, for they ” do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word.” 1 ‘ These occupy an intermediate sphere between the Divine and the human natures. It is but natural to suppose that there should be other and nobler forms of life between us and the Highest Life of all. The microscope reveals to us new regions of animated existence in the descending scale. Between the lowest form thus laid bare, and man, with his marvellous apparatus of bodily organs, his moral and mental faculties, and the dignity conferred on him as creation’s lord and  master, a whole world of separation intervenes. It were unreasonable to suppose that the ascending scale of life stops with man ; that there are no connecting links leading upwards through various grades and orders to the Eternal and Infinite Jehovah, King and Creator of all.
