God's plan was for Christ's sacrifice to enable even the evil angels to be reconciled.
    God uses angels to carry out His plans -2Chronicles 32:21 "And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword."

Evil angels are also God's ministers, carrying out His specific instructions. Sometimes we are allowed to see them and sometimes we can't.

At certain times angels have come here and used odd ways to heal people -John 5:2-4 "Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled-(original 'agitated, stirred up')-the water. Whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had."

Matthew 11:10 "For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger-(the original word for 'messenger' here is 'angel')-before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee."-
    Angels are spirits -Hebrews 1:7 "And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire."-(Hebrews 1:7 is from Psalms 104:4)
    Or, as Rotherham Translation-(more often accurate to the original Greek and verified with a New Testament Greek Interlinear)-has it:-"Even as to the messengers, indeed, he saith: Who maketh his messengers, winds, and his ministers of state, a fiery flame."
    Daniel 10:11-14,20,21 "And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee and stand upright. For unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand and to chasten-(humble so as to correct the self)-thyself before thy God, thy words were heard and I am come for thy words, but the prince of the kingdom of Persia-(a demon or maybe the devil himself)-withstood me one and twenty days; but, lo, Michael-(a good high ranking angel), one of the chief princes, came to help me and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand.. ...Then said he, knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? And now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince." Other high ranking angels.

They can make themselves visible and appear as human beings -Matthew 28:2-8 "And, behold, there was a great earthquake. For the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it. His countenance-(appearance)-was like lightning, and his raiment- (clothing)-white as snow. And for fear of him the keepers did shake and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye, for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here. For he is risen as he said. Come see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and behold he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him. Lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre-(burial vault)-with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word." Hebrews 13:2 "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers. For thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
    They carry out God's wishes to give some people unusual skill and understanding -Daniel 9:21,22 "Yea, while I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation-(sacrifice). And he informed me, and talked with me and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding."
    They come to announce things as Gabriel did.
    They bring messages from God -Revelation 1:1.

Angels are incredibly powerful, but always act under God's instructions -2Samuel 24:16,17; 2Kings 19:33-35; 2Peter 2:11; Psalms 103:20.; 2Thessalonians 1:7; Psalms 103:20;
    Their ministry is basically for the physical well being and protection of God's children -1Kings 19:5,6; Psalms 34:7; Daniel 6:22; Matthew 2:13; 4:11; 18:10; Luke 22:43; Acts 5:19; Hebrews 1:14; Psalms 34:7; 91:11; Acts 5:19; 8:26; 10:3; 12:7; 27:23.

Angels are watching us (1Corinthians 4:9; Ephesians 3:10; Ecclesiastes 5:6), and watch over us.

The devil, an evil angel, also has other evil angels with him. We call them demons.
    Way back when, some angels became demons -Jude 1:6
    They had thought that their way was better than God's way. We too, have that lesson to learn.
    Overall, and allowing a lot of latitude, God controls everything except someone's mind, yet causes many things to influence a person. He wants those that may be in a relationship with Him to be in that relationship because they want to be in it, because their heart is to be in it, not because they somehow feel that they have to be or, should be, out of fear. One is in a relationship with God because they have come to see that this is really 'where it's all at'.-...continue?

When you stand for what's right; you win if you lose!
When you do what's wrong to win, you lose – somewhere, some time, somehow. Don't lose the lesson of the experience.
