What's all this about Angels?

From the Introduction

We are told in Colossians 1:15-16, John 1:1-3 and Psalm 104:29-30 (c.f. I Corinthians 8:3, Hebrews 1:2-3) that all things were created through the agencies of the Son and the Spirit, the Father being the Initiator of all that action: The Word (or Son) preceded the creation even of angels. In the Colossian reference the angels are called ‘thrones, dominions, principalities and authorities’—a point which we will examine later. In this passage we are told that in the Son ‘all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible...’ What we need to see is that the entire creation is one (and one only) wholly functional unit.
