Continued from – When did the Angels become saints and why saints anyway?-Br Andrew

Short answer Angels were saints from the day of their creation.

Let us all remember that everything created by God is good, everything/human or angel are ‘good’ with freedom to choose to be good or bad/ evil. All were created equal, according to their kind.

 

Sancte or Holy happens to be the translation of the title ‘saint’ anyone who enters Heaven after death are known as Holy, sanctified, sancte or Saint.

There is nothing in Heaven that is not Holy, and the angels who were created before human beings are saints because they are in heaven. Those who joined with Lucifer in the rebellion against God are in hell and are daemons.  This is the belief of many in the church concerning such matters. Again it is said that when human beings enter heaven they do not grow wings and become angels although this concept is the consolation of many who have lost their infants, that there is another angel in heaven watching over them.

Here is what Scripture says:

Revelation 12:7,12

Michael Defeats the Dragon

7 And war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, 
12 Rejoice then, you heavens
   and those who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
   for the devil has come down to you
with great wrath,
   because he knows that his time is short!’ NRSV

Fallen Angels are here on this earth, as is Satan not tucked away in Dante’s Inferno. Recall what Satan does.-”

 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD2The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” NASB
