When did God create the angels?
Here's the answer:
The Bible does not tell us exactly when God created the angels, but we do know that the angels were created before God created the earth.
The angels were created by God sometime before He created the world. Since God created the angels before the world, it is impossible to know exactly when He created the angels. We do know that God is not limited by time like we are (2 Peter 3:8). In the book of Job, we are told that the angels were already present at creation and they were praising God for His amazing work (Job 38:4-7). We know that the angels were already in existence for a time before God created the Garden of Eden because Satan had already rebelled and fell prior to his tempting of Eve to eat the fruit.
It is possible God created the angels before He created the earth and humans because angels do have a purpose to help us (Hebrews 1:14). It is also possible that the angels had already been in existence a lot longer before creation because their main purpose has always been to worship and serve God (Revelation 5:11-14). Since God has always been, the angels could have been created at any time before the creation of the world.
What we do know for sure is that God created the angels before He created the earth. Wow! God is awesome!
"Praise him, all his angels. Praise him, all his angels in heaven" (Psalm 148:2).
"All things were created in him. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can’t be seen. He created kings, powers, rulers and authorities. All things have been created by him and for him" (Colossians 1:16).
