Another answer from our community:

Of course there is. God had to send down someone to take care of us, didn't He?

Answer:

People think there is no such thing but I think so and it is my opinion.

God send the angels down here to protect his children that's why we are still alive.

Answer:

While angels are strange, surreal and even fantasy to man's five limited senses, they are spoken of quite commonly in God's Word:

"And there came two angels to Sodom at even..." (Gen.19:1).

"...and the angel of God called to Hagar..." (Gen.21:17).

"...the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham..." (Gen.22:15).

"...the angel of the Lord said to Elijah..." (II Kings 1:3).

"...the angel of the Lord went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians..." (Isa.37:36).

"My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lion's mouths..." (Dan.6:22).

"...the angel that talked with me said unto me..." (Zech.1:9).

"...and the angels ministered unto Him..." (Mark 1:13).

"...the angel answering him said unto him, I am Gabriel..." (Luke 1:19).

These are but a few of many more random examples of angels in the Bible, the Word of God. Jesus says: "...Thy Word is Truth..." (John 17:17).

Though man's physical limitations may result in unbelief, and cause some to reject recognition of the existence of angels... the "Truth" is that they are, according to God's revealed Word, indeed real.

Answer:

Not all the references in the Bible are to angels, when read in the original Hebrew language. But even having references in the Bible is not proof that angels are real. What they are is part of modern religious belief, so for Jews, Christians and Muslims there are such things as angels, but not so for other people.

Several religions believe in supernatural beings called angels: Christianity, Judaism and Islam to name three. However, belief in the existence of angels is a matter of faith; they are not something which can be proved by the scientific method.

Even the belief in angels as messengers or guardians creates a theological contradiction. If God is omniscient and omnipotent, he does not need to send messengers or guardians to take care of us.
