ANGELS ARE BEINGS THAT EXIST, ONLY NOT EVERYBODY HAS SEEN ONE. Yet There Are Many People Who Testify To Have Seen Angels. Not all testify to seeing different types of angels.

I am doing a research for a story. I can't find enough information about Angels: what they are, why they were created, and what can kill/harm them.

When you ask that you would like to know what is the nature of angels, obviously you are looking for more than their psychological disposition. In the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, the word angel is mentioned 336 times--Old Testament (106) and the New Testament (174).
The nature of angels is such that there are some that possess freewill. And there are those that do not possess freewill, but are merely beings that act in accordance to their programming. However, not all agree that there are angels with freewill or angels without freewill. But humans know very little really.

From Do angels have free will?
Humans have free will, but they struggle with sin because the human nature has been corrupted by sin. This is why all humans sin (Romans 5:12) and find it much more difficult to “be good” than to “be bad.” The holy angels are without a sinful nature. They are not inclined toward sin but rather toward righteousness, doing everything that pleases God.
In conclusion, it doesn’t actually matter whether or not holy angels have the freedom to sin. They have a free will, but the Bible makes it clear they will not sin. The apostle John, in describing heaven, wrote there will be no mourning, crying, or pain there (Revelation 21:4), and anyone who does evil will never be permitted to enter (Revelation 21:27). The angels who are part of heaven are sinless.
God has created various creatures. Some have freewill, some do not. Humans have freewill because they were created in the image of God. To suggest they do not have freewill is to suggest God has no freewill. Some angels have freewill, but they were not created in the image of God.
The book of Jude 1:6 tells us:
And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day.
The angels Jude speaks about appear to be the sons of God who decided to take wives for themselves from the daughters of men as mentioned in Genesis (6:1-4).

However, there are beings that are referred to as the sons of God in the book of Job (1:6, 2:1) who are also angels. These angels have freewill and were appointed over 70 nations, after God introduced different languages into Earth's population (for more: The Ten Commandments Were Designed For You To Enjoy And Possess Life).

There appears to be a hierarchy of angels within the Bible, although technically they may not be angels because the word "angel" means "messenger". However, except for evil spirits and demons (often thought to be fallen angels), people seem to refer to all spirit beings as angels. The exact order of this hierarchy is difficult to pin down. One thing we can be sure is that there are angels who are archangels; there are those that have been given authority over the nations; those who are aligned with the Devil; those who are under the authority of the angels mentioned; there are those beings that appear not to be under the authority of any angels, such as the four living creatures and twenty-four elders (Revelation 5:8).

From personal experience, I can attest that there are many different spiritual entities that look like devils from Hot Stuff comics, a human-like messenger from Satan has a head that looks like a rat with praying mantis eyes and dresses in a tight grey jumpsuit that has pink army epaulets with a couple of studs on each one. There are forty-foot tall black beings that look like ">Gigantor (without the long skinny nose), smaller human shaped beings that are full of gloom and others that have different colors. Hooded grim reapers and numerous other kinds of entities that lure people to lust and worldliness, as well as familiar spirits that sit on people's shoulders. Also, I have seen a prince of darkness; that is, one of the rulers over the nations. On the good side, while there are two grim reapers who appear to take people to the dark place, there actually is an angel that has white wings that appears when people die to take selected persons to Heaven. I have seen angels that are huge and human-like, which have burnished bronze skin. There are those who are golden colored (with and without wings) and there are those that are lights. I had an angel appear before me once, dressed in a cloak, dripping with the anointing oil from the presence of God. I have seen an angel pour out a substance from a vial as a person was speaking and it flowed towards the congregation. And numerous other beings have suddenly appeared before me.

But when it comes to my many spiritual encounters and what I have seen, the Bible says not to take a stand upon visions (although seeing beings walking through walls are not exactly visions), so I do not. I stick to what is written. So I suggest that if you want to know about angels read the Bible and note that the term "sons of God" in the Old Testament can also be a reference to angels.

You will find a study of angels within the Bible an enlightening exercise. For all who acknowledge Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God before men have an angel who acknowledges them in Heaven. There is a major war about to take place soon, and the Devil will be cast out of Heaven for good (Revelation 12:7-12). While he has been cast out of his original position within Heaven, he still has legal access to the Throne of God, where he can accuse people who sin. Fortunately, everyone can repent of sin, call upon the protection of Lord Jesus Christ and trust in His redeeming blood (Romans 5:9). Just note that what is written in the book of Revelation (12:4) regarding one third of the stars being swept down to Earth is misconstrued by many people as having already taken place before the Apostle John received the prophecy which says that this is yet to take place (John 4:1).

Angels Are Real But What Is More Important Is For Us To Experience The Reality Of God
