The study of angels is referred to as “angelology”. The term comes from two Greek terms,aggelos meaning “messenger” or “angel” and logos meaning “word, matter, or thing.” In Christian theology the term "angelology" refers to the study of the Biblical doctrine of angels.

Traditionally, “angelology” includes the study of evil angels who are under the control of Satan. Their devices are an important subject of which we should be knowledgeable, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us” (2 Corinthians 2:11). Detailed teaching on this topic is covered in the Spiritual Strategies, A Manual of Spiritual Warfare Course.  

Why study angels? We are not seeking the accumulation of information, but divine revelation. As Believers, we must be able to separate truth from error. The false religions of Islam and Mormonism were both founded when an “angel of light” appeared with a message that they claimed was from God. It is also important to understand the ministries of these supernatural spirits which are dispatched by God in your behalf. You should to know their purposes and how they are activated in your life and ministry.
