Angels are clearly bigger and stronger than humans. And they didn't have to go through this hell of Earth to see God.
Unfortunately, just like humans, there are angels who sinned.
2 Peter 2:11
Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings; yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not
bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord. --
According to st. Faustina, angels who sin are immediately punished and much less forgiveness is shown to them because nobody ever living on Earth
(except Jesus) had better understanding of God. And that is why their sin is great insult to God.
As for devil:
God created Lucifer as great being, beautiful and powerful Angel.
But he chose to unthankfully rebel against his creator, who is Truth and Love, he and angels who followed him choosed Evil.
12 How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
What angels and people have in common is that we are all servants of Lord, we are (well, not all) part of his kingdom.
John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been
showing them to me. 9But he said to me, "Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the
words of this book. Worship God!"
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15Outside are
the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood."
