What the Bible says about Angelic Responsibilities
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Genesis 19:10-11

These angels reached out and pulled Lot in, so their hands were solid enough to yank Lot back into the house. Their hands did not just pass through Lot's arm, body, clothing, or whatever they grabbed him by. They had substance. Then they used some measure of spiritual power because, though the door was closed and those who were trying to get in were on the other side of it, they struck blind those who were outside so that they were disoriented and unsure about what was going on.

Daniel 10:20-21

The Bible clearly establishes that there is an angelic host to whom responsibilities and authority have been delegated by God. Gabriel came because of Daniel's appeal; he responded to Daniel's prayer. He came to Daniel's aid, but he was delayed from arriving immediately because He met resistance from another great being. Eventually, he had to receive help from a third great being named Michael, identified as "your prince." He is not Daniel's prince necessarily, but Israel's prince. We see an angelic being whose authority is over (or whose responsibility is to God in behalf of) the children of Israel.
