Several Christians are conversant with the fact that angels are beings from heaven who God created to serve him in specific roles. While some have been recorded in the Bible as completing specific godly missions, others have been recorded as guardian angels. Guardian angels are said to be the angels sent by God to guard his people. Since they are close to humans, some curious Christians have asked, can guardian angels fall in love with humans?
Theologians agree that Guardian angels cannot fall in love with humans since they were not biblically made to have such emotions. Guardian angels were created as good angels meant to protect us Christians from the harm that comes from the devil daily. Guardian angels cannot marry or get married and are not gender specific biblically, as quoted in Matthew 22:30. This reveals that they are incapable of falling in love with humans and can only play the role God created them for.
Some Christians have recently gained interest in guardian angels and have been asking some questions regarding them. What does the Bible say about guardian angels? Do angels have emotions? Can angels fall in love? These and other questions regarding angels have been discussed in this article; read on to find out.
What Does the Bible Say About Guardian Angels?
The first mention of a guardian angel in the Bible is when God speaks to Moses in Exodus 23:20-21. The scripture states, “Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Pay careful attention to him and obey his voice; do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression, for my name is in him.” Guardian angels are depicted as guardians of the people of God and have been sent by Himself to accomplish the task.
Psalms 34:7 says, “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him and delivers them.” The scripture depicts the guardian angels as capable of delivering the people of God from troubles as long as they fear and respect him.
Luke 22:23 says, “And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.” Here, the scriptures reveal that guardian angels can strengthen the people of God. If you require strength, your guardian angel can be sent with help from God to help support you.
Matthew 18:30 says, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” This verse suggests that every human being might have a unique guardian angel. Furthermore, the guardian angels of children are favored more than the others due to the innocence of the children in the kingdom of God.
These are some of the verses that have tried to discuss the guardian angels and their roles in the lives of the people of God. They reveal visions and guard, strengthen, and deliver the people of God in spiritual battles.
What is the relationship between humans and guardian angels?
Humans and guardian angels were created by God and given different roles to play. God gifted humans with guardian angels who help in guarding the souls of humans spiritually. Humans are always at risk of falling into the snares set by Satan daily. Satan is described as a roaring lion ready to devour the souls of Christians.
Guardian angels come in handy to ensure that the soul of a human is guarded well from the malicious devil. Having a guardian angel means that the battles of your soul are well sorted and done perfectly with the power of God.
Do angels have emotions?
Angels do have emotions, as some of the scriptures suggest. In Luke 2:13, several angels are recorded praising God, which indicates that they had experienced a joyous occasion worthy of praising God. James 2:19 talks about the demons believing that God is one and that this fact makes them shudder. Some scriptures suggest that demons are fallen angels, and shaking, therefore, means that they experience the emotions of fear.
Despite having only a few scriptures that speak about the emotions of angels, the Bible has suggested that angels experience emotions. They can be furious during a spiritual war and comforting when needed to do so in the life of a human. They are also known to praise God joyously when the heavens need rejoicing.
Does the Bible say angels can fall in love with humans?
The Bible does not clearly state whether angels can fall in love with humans. However, some Bible scholars have translated a verse to mean angels can fall in love with humans. Genesis 6:1-4 talks of a time when men multiplied, and the daughters of men were attracted to the sons of God who married them.
Some biblical scholars have suggested that the sons of God refer to angels the same way they were referred to in Job 1:6, 2:1, and 38:7. While using their context, the Bible could be suggesting that angels can fall in love with humans. However, other scholars have suggested that the sons of God be either the descendants of Seth or some one-time influential leaders, not angels.
Where in the Bible does it talk about angels falling in love?
The Bible does not talk about angels falling in love. However, some biblical scholars have translated Genesis 6:1-4 to mean that angels can fall in love. This is because the scriptures have used the phrase ‘sons of God in this context, which has been compared to other instances in the Bible where it was used to mean angels.
How did fallen angels and humans produce Nephilim?
Genesis 6:1-4 talks about sons of God and daughters of men who intermarried and produced gigantic men referred to as the Nephilim by some Christian writers. The sons of God in this context have been suggested to be angels by some scholars. By using their description of angels, this verse indicates that through marriage with human women, the fallen angels were able to bring forth the Nephilim.
Did Angels Interbreed With Women to Produce Giants?
There is no record of angels interbreeding with women to produce giants. However, some scholars have suggested that Genesis 6:1-4 talks about this unique breed of giants who were products of relationships between humans and angels who are referred to as sons of God.
Can angels fall in love with other angels?
Since angels are created of a kind, they could fall in love. However, the scriptures have not stated that angels are falling in love with each other anywhere. Some Christian scholars support that angels are emotional creatures who can express love but only in a godly way.
Some scholars have also noted that demons resulted from some angels abusing their power of free will. The fact that they could rebel against God suggests that they can also decide to fall in love with other angels. The only problem is that it is highly likely that this will attract rage from God, who did not create the angels for this purpose, according to the scriptures.
