Many sacred writings including the Bible, have recorded stories of angels who come to earth to speak with and guard humankind.

Here are 6 amazing angel facts that are seen in the Bible.
Fact #1 Angels care for soldiers and members of the military. This is evidenced in scripture where it was identified that the very first Gentile convert was a military officer.
Acts chapter 10 verses 3 and 4 states that "
About the ninth hour of the day he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God who had just come in to him, and said to him, 'Cornelius!' and fixing his gaze upon him and being much alarmed, he said, 'What is it, Lord?'
And he [the angel] said to him, 'Your prayers and alms have ascended as a memorial before God "
Fact #2 In the same book if Acts, the scriptures vividly describe that no prison or jail cell can ever detain or hold captive an angel.
There are many stories in the Bible of which angels have appeared to many Christian followers like Peter and Paul, among others, who were freed by guardian angels from confinement in prison.
5 Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.
6 And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison.
7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands.
8 Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.”
9 So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.
10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.
11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.” -Acts 12:15-17
Fact #3 Angels are tasked to keep watch and safeguard little children.
Jesus Christ fondly spoke of children being under the care of angels.
10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven." -Matthew 18:10

Fact #4 The scriptures also declare that angels are subject to Jesus Christ as the Supreme Commander.
Angels cannot perform the works of the Holy Spirit (indwelling the faithful or bestowing spiritual gifts) nor can they grant forgiveness of personal sins, as stated in I Peter chapter 3 verses 21 and 22.
A great multitude of angels descended on Mt. Sinai, the place where the prophet Moses received the tablet bearing the laws God wanted to bring to His people the Israelites, which had reference to the scriptures where the psalmist declared
"Why do you look with envy, O mountains with many peaks, at the mountain which God has desired for His abode?
Surely, the Lord will dwell there forever. The chariots of God are myriads, thousands upon thousands; the Lord is among them as at Sinai, in holiness". (Psalm 68:16,17)
Fact #5 Angels also live in constant communion with God, who continually praise and worship Him.
"And Zacharias said to the angel, 'How shall I know this for certain? For I am an old man, and my wife is advanced in years,'
And the angel answered and said to him, 'I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God: and I have been sent to speak to you, and to bring to you this good news." -Luke 1:18,19
Fact #6 Heaven (the spiritual realm byond space and time) remains to be the center of activity for angels and there is the busiest traffic of angels from the heavens to earth and back.
This belief would clearly indicate that angels have a direct purpose or call to get engaged with activities and individuals in the physical realm of earth.
Jesus Christ often spoke both of angels and heaven and one good example can be found in the book of John chapter 1 verses 50 and 51:
"Jesus answered and said to him, 'Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these."
And He said to him, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, you shall see the heavens opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.' "
