    Number Of Angels In Heaven

    Nowhere ANYWHERE in O L D T E S T A M E N T scripture does it state ANY NUMBER in regards to angels having already been cast from heaven....NOWHERE!!!! So you are not going to get any TRUE hard fact numbers from anyone.

    Scriptural proof is what you need and there is NONE in the OLD TESTAMENT!!!

    However...in the New Testament in Revelation 12 verses 4 & 9 it says:

    4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

    NOW NOTE IT SAYS "STARS of HEAVEN". Stars represent angels and remember that satan himself is called a "star".

    9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    One thing to note is this.....NOWHERE does it LITERALLY say in scripture......."and one third of the angels of heaven were cast out, or fell with satan".

    No specific number is given, just 1/3 as has been mentioned.

    The total number of angels is not given either except to say there are myriads on myriads. That somewhere in the vicinity of millions upon millions.

    The man in the tombs had a legion (thousands) of demons and 1/3 of the angels were cast out with Satan, So there really is no way to put a number on them!

    I think I read somewhere that it was 1,000 angels. However, that's not in the Bible, and I'm not sure where I read it. I'll look for it and see if I can find where it was written, then you can figure out whether it's a credible source. Give me a few...

    Lucifer must have been pretty annoyed to his father to leave he kingdom of, not only heavens, but the universe. Why is there trouble in the perfection of heaven after all that angels have to leave?

    Well they are very very many.Their numbers are never entirely specified apart from Grimoires and if you are into knowing their names and divisions take a look at

    http://www.hermetics.org/pdf/grimoire/ac_goetia.pd...

    and

    http://www.chaosmatrix.org/library/books/lesserkey...

    As regards to the latter there are some astranomically unbeleivable figures given for example(among several therein)

    "Caspiel is the Chiefest Emperor Ruling the South who hath 200 great Dukes & 400 lesser Dukes under him besides 1,000,200,000,000 of Ministring Spirits which are much inferior & whereof we [saith Solomon] shall make no mention but only of these 12 being the chief Dukes & their seals for they are sufficient for practise. Each of these 12 Dukes have 2660 under Dukes apeace to Attend them, whereof some of

    them come along with him when he is invocated but they are very stubborn & churlish. The seals of his Dukes follow."

    As regards the Bible an example that is worthy is the Exorcism of the Gerasene demoniac in Mark 5 .Here a demon probably speaks for several calling himself "Legion, for we are many"....They plead with Jesus to let them into pigs and the pigs nearby numbered 2000 and after they left the man they entered the pigs and drowned them all by rushing down into the lake.

    Now for demons out of one man to posess 2000 pigs either means they were really many and posessed each pig (demon for pig) or it could be that one demon can posess several animated creatures and men who are in close proximity to each other simultaneously.

    Both scenarios could be true as angels hold power beyond our own

    Real number crunching is imposiible but the truth is that they are really numerous and contrary to popular beleif they are not departed bad souls or good souls.They have maintained their number since their collective creation being immortal and unable to reproduce...Though genesis 6 seems to purport that they tried.

    According to the book of Enoch some 200 who fell had sex with women but only the 28 prominent leaders are mentioned as follows:

    Semyaza,Azazel,Amazarak,Armers,Barkayal,Kokabel,Ezeqeel,Araqiel,Shamsiel,Sariel, Akibeel,Tamiel,Penemue, Kasdeja,Gadreel,Ramuell,Danel, Azkeel,Saraknyal,Asael,Batraal,Anane,Zavebe,Samsaveel,

    Ertael,Turel,Yomvael,Urakabarameel

    Confusion also arises as to wether Satan/Lucifer is also Beelzebub,Belial,Leviathan by name or wether these names are atributed to his senior 'leutenants'.Many satanists and oculltists take the names as seperate entities all under Lucifer/Satan

    All in all they are very many

    Since the total number of angels is never given, it is impossible to say how many constitute a 1/3.

    At best, their number is referred to as myriads upon myriads.

    One myriad is approximately 10,000.

    It's actually a misnomer that they fell. The took a celestial escalator and numerically it was a third. They are named if you have that sort of interest, google it and see for yourself.
