Castiel introduces Joshua as an angel who talks to God. And according to Castiel, Joshua is the only angel that he knows of that communicates with God.
Joshua is an angel who communicates with God. He lives in Heaven, at the place referred to as "The Garden". He says that others refer to it as Eden while others call it God's Throne Room.
Joshua is first mentioned in episode 5.16 The Dark Side of the Moon, when Dean and Sam are in Heaven and are contacted by Castiel through a TV. According to Castiel, Joshua is someone that the brothers must find: He is the only angel he knows of that talks directly to God and has maintained contact up until now. If they were to locate him, they could potentially extract the exact position of God himself, and essentially end the Apocalypse. After the Winchesters get into a dangerous position with Zachariah, Joshua finds them restrained and asks Zachariah to let him deliver a message to Sam and Dean. After Zachariah refuses, Joshua tactfully pulls rank on him, hinting that a higher authority (God) has ordered this event, and quietly implies that should he not comply, God's wrath would be a likely punishment.
Whisking the brothers away to the center of Heaven, the Garden, he delivers the message that God is indeed the one who rescued them from Lucifer, raised Castiel, and granted salvation to Dean and even Sam. He also reveals that God is on Earth, somewhere. When asked why God would chose to speak to Joshua and not to anyone else, Joshua speculates that because God and him are both "gardeners" in a degree, God must feel that Joshua can sympathize with him better than anyone else,adding that God is also on the lonely side.
Telling them that God wants them to "back off", he reveals that God seems to feel that the Apocalypse is not his problem,and he will not help. Joshua seems genuinely sad to be the bearer of bad news, but assures them that this is no lie.
Sending them back to Earth, he parts with the words that God wants them to "remember". Presumably, he means that God meant for them to remember their stay in Heaven this time around, rather than forget, as they have done, presumably, many times before .
