An indirect answer to your question: In Genesis 1 God works at creating order out of chaos. He starts the process of dividing organizing.

The Bible says that Lucifer( Satan's former name)was a cherub(Ezekiel 28:14). Cherubs are not cute little chubby angels but are in truth actually pretty frightening to look at.

The Ezekiel passage seems to be split in two as already noted. The first section (1-10) seems to be talking about a man (prince). The second section (11-19) seems to be talking about a king.
