"AN ANGEL THAT JOHN WANTED TO WORSHIP IN REV. 22:8-9 WAS A PROPHET"


Since John fell to worship before an angel according to Rev. 22:8-10, and the angel turns out to be John's fellowservant and of his brethren the prophets, does that make you wonder what the name of prophet was before he became an angel?  And why is he being called an angel?  Is it because he has a spiritual body that is immortal and incorruptible?  And when did he become an angel? When the saints arose after Jesus Christ's resurrection, or in the future at the resurrection- rapture?  
 
Also doesn't that leave you wondering if any of the other angels in the book of Revelation were once prophets or saints?  How about all the angels around the throne of God in heaven along with the 24 elders and the beasts in Revelation 5:11 and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands?  Are all these angels around God's throne angels that were created by God in the beginning or are all these angels prophets and saints?  Jude 1:14  says, "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." The Book of Enoch 2:1 says, "Behold, he comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and ungodly have done, and committed against him." according to the link at http://www.johnpratt.com/items/docs/enoch.html  So it does make me wonder if these ten thousands of saints are any of the ten thousands times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands of angels around God's throne in Rev. 5:11 or not.
 
Also over in Revelation 19:10 whoever told John about the marriage supper of the Lamb tells John not to worship him either so it sounds like 2 different angels tell John not to worship them.  The one in Rev. 19:10 also says he is John's fellowservant, and of his brethren that have the testimony of Jesus.
 
Revelation 19:10, "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
 
Revelation 22:8-10, "And I John saw these things, and heard [them]. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See [thou do it] not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand."
