Faith Tidbit #45
Contrary to a common misconception, the Bible doesn't teach that angels are human beings who have died and gone to heaven. Angels are a separate order of God's creation. The word angel means messenger. When you look at the accounts that include angels in both the Old and New Testaments, you notice that they are message-bringers. Angels are important, but only human beings were created in the image of God, making them the highest and most significant of all God's creation.
