Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 19

Question 19

What is God’ s providence towards the angels?

God by his providence permitted some of the angels, willfully and irrecoverably, to fall into sin and damnation, (Jude 6, 2 Pet. 2:4, Heb. 2:16, John 8:44) limiting and ordering that, and all their sins, to his own glory; (Job 1:12, Matt. 8:31) and established the rest in holiness and happiness; (1 Tim. 5:21, Mark 8:38, Heb. 12:22) employing them all, (Ps. 104:4) at his pleasure, in the administrations of his power, mercy, and justice. (2 Kings 19:35, Heb. 1:14)
