I believe angels are remarkably more intelligent than humans and likely consider heavenly arcana far beyond man’s most eloquent wit. After all, they have dwelt with the great God of our universe for the dateless past, observing His ways and discerning His Kingdom. Unlike we earthbound humans, angels are able to behold God’s face and, being constructed in His image and by His Hands, possess an intellectual capacity that would most certainly be useful to God. Surely the ability to travel the cosmos, appear and disappear at will, maneuver within the mind of man and address God on an appreciable level requires far more intellect than the grandest dreams the greatest human minds can achieve. Indeed, humankind’s most talented minds must seem profoundly prosaic to the enormity of angelic appreciation.
And unlike us, angels lack the physical constraints that inhibit our intellect. I write, in Journal of the Angelic, that, perhaps, the single deficiency angels lack when compared to humans is the ability to forget. They likely remember every single instance, clearly and distinctly, from the time of their creation and across the antiquities. For a perfect God to govern and maintain a divine Kingdom, absent-mindedness and ignorance in His servants would seem markedly uncharacteristic, and more problematic than practical.
The Bible occasionally refers to angels as messengers. To whom, are those messages delivered? How do those angels know where to go and by what means do they navigate the cosmos? Are you and I capable of such things? What does the term ‘messenger angel’ suggest about life on other planets?
For all the complexities of man, how much more unknowable is the construct of the angelic? To this day, technologists are unable to design a robot that is able to go downstairs and turn out the lights, much less invent said technology. How much less are those human creations able to perform such complex functions as those required to metabolize food into enzymes, proteins and complete fascinating chemical processes, without conscious cognitive input? Has any manmade device produced so much as a singular thought of its own? Yet, God produced, in one day, an entire race capable of not only re-producing themselves, but able to distill knowledge into ideas, and concepts into progress. By no will of their own, their bones mend and their sores heal. Is any human able to breathe a soul into their creation? Are the greatest among us able to even observe the immortal soul within our own flesh? How infinitesimal the thoughts of man compared to God…how insignificant our bidding compared to the wondrous angelic creations swept across the heavens upon the universally consequential missions of our omnipotent Lord.
