Who can compare to The One Who Created the Heavens, the Earth, and everything in between? Who can say they can stand on the same ground as The God Who made the ultimate sacrifice of Love, to save those who didn’t even know they needed saving? No one/nothing. In all we do, in all we see, and in all we face, we must carry this thought in mind: Who can compare to the One who created the heavens, the earth, and everything in between? Who can say they can stand on the same ground as the God who made the ultimate sacrifice of love, to save those who didn’t even know they needed saving? No one. In all we do, in all we see, and in all we face, we must carry this thought in mind: The God we call our Heavenly Father is The GREATEST of all. In all His splendor and glory, He counted us worthy to be called His children. There truly is no one like Him! The God we call our Heavenly Father is the GREATEST of all. In all His splendor and glory, He counted us worthy to be called His children. There truly is no one/thing like Him.
God Created angels, glory Hallelujah!
Trying to determine when God created the angels is somewhat tricky because anything God did “before the foundation of the world” puts the event outside of time itself. Time and space are characteristics of our world, not God’s. He is not limited by hours, days, and years as we are. In fact, the Bible tells us that “with the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day” (2 Peter 3:8).
We do know that God created the angels before He created the physical universe. The book of Job describes the angels worshiping God as He was creating the world: “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone – while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” (Job 38:4-7).
If we consider the function of angels, we might conclude that God created the angels just prior to the creation of mankind because one of their duties is to be “ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). We also know they existed prior to the garden of Eden, because Satan, who was formerly the angel Lucifer, was already present in the garden in his fallen state. However, because another function of angels is to worship God around His throne (Revelation 5:11-14), they may have been in existence millions of years—as we reckon time—before God created the world, worshiping Him and serving Him.
So, although the Bible does not specifically say when God created the angels, it was sometime before the world was created. Whether this was a day before, or billions of years before—again, as we reckon time—we cannot be sure.
And we pray:
Dear God, no one/nothing can compare to Your GREATNESS. There is no one, not a single being, in this universe that can try to stand up to You. In all the things I have read, seen, and heard of Your GREATNESS, O Lord, I know that there is so much more to Your greatness we are yet to know. I pray that all the Earth will come to the knowledge of Your GREATNESS, O God, and that we will all come to worship You and give You the praise that is truly due to You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
