Angels, messengers of God, the Lord, or the devil, are not Babies with wings. The first Angels mentioned in the Bible are the Cherubs. They are charged with protecting the Tree of Life from those not worthy to partake.
The Lord had representations of them on the Tabernacle in the desert and in Solomon’s Temple. The Lord flew on them and they had 4 faces, 4 wings, and 4 wheels. The Lord speaks from between the Cherubims, who were over the Mercy seat, of God.
In Isaiah 6 we find another type of Angel, the Seraphin. their job is to Praise and Exalt the Lord, They also brought the message of sin being purged from Isaiah, so he could do the Work of the Lord.
Notice the cherubs protect God, the Tree of Life, while the Seraphim Praise and do the bidding of the Lord.
Next, we will look at the Archangels, the Angels of God, and the Angels of the Lord. I believe we will see a difference in their assignments and actions.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain, he covered his face, and with twain, he covered his feet, and with twain, he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
6 Then flew one of the seraphim unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
8 Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
12 And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
