Angel – Messenger of God
Angel of the Lord

By: Joseph H. Murray

(1) The first definition of an angel is “Messenger of God”, given to us in these words: “A race of spiritual beings of a nature exalted far above that of man, although infinitely removed from that of God–whose office is ‘to do him service in heaven, and by his appointment to succor and defend men on earth’.”

(2) Angel of the Lord:The special form in which God manifested himself to man, and hence Christís visible form before [his coming in human flesh].”
