Angels and archangels are spiritual beings that are religiously believed to be carriers of messages between God and man. Whereas, angels are considered just messengers, while archangels are known to being higher messengers. The archangels are considered to be of higher rank than the angels, and they probably deliver messages that are more important.

Archangels can employ angels for help, while the angels are not in the shoes to order archangels. The numbers of angels are more than that of the archangels; just a few of the archangels are created by God. Few of the archangels that are mentioned in the Bible include Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Lucifer, and more.

The meaning for the root word for the angel as obtained from both Greek and Hebrew means messenger, while the meaning for the root word for archangel means Chief Angel. Angels are known to have visited and even dine with men, but this is rare among archangels.
