When Were Angels Created?

When it comes to when angels were created… The questions arise. I think it is easy to trust that the Bible can provide evidence.

Suddenly there was with the angel a company of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

Luke 2:13 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

See 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 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like the angels of God in heaven.

Matthew 22:30 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as He was born.

Revelation 12:4 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

I think that is more than sufficient evidence as to where the abode of angels is. Their abode is in heaven. That is their domain.

Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” So God made the expanse and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. God called the expanse Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

Genesis 1:6–8 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

The domain for angels didn’t exist until the second day of creation.

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Declare, if you have understanding. Who has determined its measurements, if you know?
Or who has stretched the line upon it?
To what are its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:4–7 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

The angels were in existence before the foundations of the earth were laid.

Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. Then God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:9–10 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

There is more than sufficient evidence to satisfy the question.

What say you?
