Are We Angels That Were Kicked Out Of Heaven? Part 4 – When Were Angels Created?

As discussed in Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the “Were We Angels That Were Kicked Out of Heaven” series, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) believes that all people on earth existed as angels in heaven before existing as humans on earth. Can this be possible when we examine what the Scriptures tell us about when angels were created?

When Were Angels Created?

The Bible tells us that angels have not always existed but instead are part of the universe that God created. Genesis 2:1 tells us that “the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” Host is another word for angels as seen in Psalm 148:2 “Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly hosts.” See also Nehemiah 9:6.

It can easily be determined that angels were created before the 7th day. “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them…” Exodus 20:11

In the Bible there is evidence to suggest that angels were created on the 1st day. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1) is immediately followed by “Now the earth was formless and empty…” (Genesis 1:2) No further mention of creation in heaven is made in the verses following Genesis 1:1. The earth on the other hand was uninhabitable at this point in creation. The fact that angels were created before the earth is further supported by Job 38:6-7 which describes the angels singing together and shouting for joy when God laid the cornerstone of the earth and set its footings.

“On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” Job 38:6-7

Since the angels sang and shouted for joy while God was making the world inhabitable, this suggests that angels were created early on the 1st day, but man was not created until the sixth day.

Angels Vs. Humans
  • God will someday give us authority to judge angels (1 Corinthians 6:3), so the two are distinct .
  • Humans are seen as beneath angels (Hebrews 2:7).
  • Angels serve those humans who are to inherit salvation (Hebrews 1:14).
  • Humans can bear children in their own image (Genesis 5:3) while angels can not have children (Matthew 22:30, Luke 20:34-36).
  • God did not spare any of the angels that sinned against him (2Peter 2:4, Jude 6) but sent them to hell to await judgement.
  • “For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants.” Hebrews 2:16.
  • But of the human race God has decided to redeem a great multitude that no one can number (Revelation 7:9) in order to demonstrate his great mercy and grace.  Angels, however, are not redeemed.
Conclusion
  1. Angels and man were created at different times.
  2. The Bible makes clear distinctions between humans and angels.
  3. The Bible tells us that the angels that sinned against God were not spared and instead were sent to hell to await judgement.
  4. All humans sinned (Romans 3:23, 5:12).  Jesus Christ came to sanctify human sinners once and for all (Hebrews 10:10), but not the fallen angels.

Therefore, the Bible does not support the WMSCOG’s claim that humans ever existed as angels.

  • I have recently heard of this church through my cousin who in my belief is utterly brainwashed! My family is pentecostal and i dont consider myself to be of any religion but i believe in god,the holy spirit (i have seen the holy spirit use people in magnificent ways) and of course in jesus christ the son. I asked god upon arriving to the church of god near my home (even though my relationship with god is not the best) to give me understanding and let me see the truth when these people showed me about their religion. I did not go with an ignorant mind but as i sat there with my mom,cousin and my cousins husband i immediately saw how things didnt add up! The lady teaching claimed we were the angels who rebelled against god,christ already came,and there was no way into heaven except through the church of god. Like i said i never sat down and read the bible but this woman made no sense even i knew that the angels whom rebelled against god were cast out with lucifer and sent to hell where they await judgement. I knew that when jesus came a second time he would come the same way he left which was through the clouds and that this was his second coming which is also when hed take those who are saved with him thus that being the salvation he shall bring,not the passover like they so claim. I asked this woman how do they know mr.ahnsahnhong was christ? She went into the whole idiotic king david prophecy lecture and that made no sense because jesus was greater than david why should jesus have to equal himself as david to prove he is christ second coming? The lady was surprised at my questioning and you could tell she had expected an easier mind to mold. When i asked her if anyone saw ahnsahnhong ascend she said he was found dead at the age of sixty seven and no one knows how so i chuckled and said so he died of natural causes she replied with yes but no one knows how i laughed she had no answer! She herself was baffled! If ahnsahnhong was christ why was he buried? If he supposedly ascended?! Also when she tried to lecture me about how were fallen angels she quoted from revelations 12 why would she do that? Isnt revelations about what is to come? Why not quote how during the first war lucifer and his angels were sent to hell where they await judgement isnt those angels the ones the church claims we are? So are we living in hell then? Seriously im pretty sure that this woman that was lecturing me has never even read that part in the bible because their lessons are cherry picked to suit them. Im going to hear what more they have to say only this time i have evidence of where they are wrong.what can they do? say the bible is wrong? most likely they will politely ask me to leave lol. But im not easily convinced. You want to know whats interesting? I came to my own logical conclusions and i saw the contradictions they themselves make i caused a devoted member to scramble for answers but so many intelligent people like my cousin fall so easily!
