Rocky, The 'angels' are not the commonly understood messengers. There is a problem with the translation.Candlesticks - Seven church congregations
Stars - Individuals within the congregations, all held in the right hand of Christ
Seals - The seven seals sealed each congregation within the lambs book of life
Angels - The current preacher to the congregation.
An angel of the congregation was a single person, but not a preacher. In Hebrew he was called the 'Sheliach'. This was one who was appointed by the leader of the synagogue to read from the scriptures and to also offer up prayers. Today we have something similar in the synagogue and is called the Chazan or Cantor.
