When the Old Testament speaks of “sons of God,” it mainly is referring to fallen angels. We also know that God’s people in the New Testament are called “sons of God”: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” (Romans 8:14 ). Please don’t let this confused you. In the beginning, human beings were made in God’s own image, i.e. divine (Genesis 1:26-27). We can call this original divine state of being – angelic or cherubic. You will also hear it described as: first creation, primordial state, cherubic form and/or cherubic nature. So when the Dead Sea Scrolls speak of the angelic priests, please stop and ponder the eternal ramifications of being an angelic priest made after the Order of Melchizedek.

P.S. I am not equating fallen angels with believers in Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Simply pointing out that the term “angelic” seems to be so much more than we have been taught. So far I have seen angels themselves, the Seven Spirits of God, High Priests going into the Holy of Holies, and humans made divine again being referred to as “angelic”. They are all living beings.
