What happens when you die?
I'm trying to understand who the angles in the Bible are if they are not part of Heaven. This is a serious question, I'm trying to understand others beliefs.

Many people believe it is wrong to pray to anyone who is dead because they can't hear you. The angels in the Bible seemed to be able to hear people they often came to communicate to people what God wanted for them. I'm trying to understand what others believe about these angels if they couldn't communicate with us if they aren't in Heaven, as some have said.

So do you think the angels in Heaven are still worshipping God? In the story of Jacobs ladder do you think the angles had a purpose for ascending and descending the ladder?
This is not a trick question I'm not trying to stir up any drama I really want to understand the views of others. I've written about what I believe I want to understand what others believe.

Yes I became very confused too. I don't understand what purpose others believe that angels have in Heaven.

Neither of these angels were prayed to but God sent them to either help us or give us a message.
Yes, but when they delivered messages those who received the message spoke to the angels - they didn't just ignore them right? In Gen. 19:1 Lot bowed down to the ground in veneration before two angels in Sodom. In Jos. 5:14 Joshua fell to the ground prostrate in veneration before an angel. In Dan. 8:17 Daniel fell down prostrate in veneration before the angel Gabriel. So the angels can be honored and venerated without diminishing God and His power. The reason they are venerated is because they're from God were perfected by God.

first of all, no one prays to angels
So Protestants don't believe in guardian angels and wouldn't ask a guardian angel to watch over them or their child?
