There are different categories of angels, with appropriate missions and activities assigned to them. There is some disagreement regarding the nature of angels and some argue that angels have physical bodies, while some maintain that they are entirely spiritual and some have proposed that angels are not divine but on the level of immaterial beings subordinate to the Trinity.
The Bible describes the function of angels as ‘messengers’ but does not indicate when the creation of angels occurred. The Bible includes many interactions and conversations between angels and Humans.
In the New Church all angels are in Human form with a spiritual body, and are not just minds without form. All angels originate from the Human race, and there is not one angel in heaven who first did not live in a material body.
The life of angels is that of usefulness, and their functions are so many that they cannot be enumerated. Each angel will enter a service according to the use that they had performed in their earthly life.
Angel Heart is a neo-noir psychological horror and occult detective film which follows Harry Angel, a New York City private investigator hired by Louis Cyphre to solve the disappearance of a man known as Johnny Favorite. Angel’s investigation takes him to New Orleans, where he becomes embroiled in a series of brutal occult-related murders.
Angel deduces that Louis Cyphre is a homophone for Lucifer. Cyphre confirms that he is the Devil and proclaims that he can at long last claim what is his: Favorite’s immortal soul.
It turns out that Harry Angel is in fact Johnny Favorite responsible for the murders. ‘I know. In Hell.’ During the end credits, Angel is seen standing inside an iron Otis elevator which is descending.
