It's been years ago since I did an in depth study on angels and giants. Don't remember as much as I would like to but the key is found in the fall angels in heaven and the fall of humans in the garden. One third of the angels fell with satan. Another thought that needs to be evaluated is that angels were more powerful that natural men because Jesus had the power to call a legion of angels to his rescue while he was on the cross. The bible has a lot to say about giants.I have lots of questions and not many answers when it comes to angels, their marriage, and their ability to have sex. The term Sons of God in Genesis, I assume to be male since they went into daughters of men. When Jesus answered the question of whose wife this woman would be he never said angles were not male and female.
Mat 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
My thought, can angles be of the female sex leaving their abode with the Sons of Adam also? Jezabel the wife of the King Ahab of Israel comes to mind but this name comes up again in Revelation.
Rev 2:20 But I have this against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.
Just a thought.

Did you study include that angels intercede for you?
The angels are spiritual beings who have a free will and an intellect that is far superior to ours. The evil ones dwell in hell; the holy ones dwell in heaven and are therefore considered to be saints. Whoever is in heaven is a saint.
God uses angels as messengers, guardians, and all-around helpers to us—as well as to reflect his glory.
In Tobit 12:12, the Archangel Raphael said to Tobias, "So now when you and Sarah prayed, it was I who brought and read the record of your prayer before the glory of the Lord, and likewise whenever you would bury the dead."
In Tobit 12:14-16, we read, "And at the same time God sent me to heal you and Sarah your daughter-in-law. I am Raphael, one of the seven angels who stand ready and enter before the glory of the Lord. The two of them were shaken; they fell face down, for they were afraid."

Angels are not saints! The fallen angels cannot be redeemed. The angels which did not join satan in the rebellion have no need to be saved. They are different creatures than humans, although they have been known to take on the form of man in the OT. Yes, angels are our servants.
Hebrews 1:14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Billy Graham has a book about the ministering angels, you can find it on line.

What we call angels, are servants to "lord up high". The "lord up high" is to bring us into the family of the "universe". This means that in the angels are a "guiding figure" and what the book call at "the end of days", we will be part of this family. Satan fell because he did not like this idea that we are to become his "equal".
