What More Do You Know About Angels?

Since from the age of 12, I am inquisitive on who angels really are?

· How do they look like?

· What type of clothes do they put on?

· Are there female/male angels?

· Do they procreate just as we humans do?

· Let me get your view based on this subject, as it will go a long way to my findings

re: donnie's post

you know what amazes me about these "christians" TV, it's almost as if they're reading a different Bible.  for some reason i get even more angry at people who misrepresent God because these are the religious fanatics and zealots who mislead and chase people away from christianity.  most of the are just regurgitating catholic teachings.

ANGEL

A typically benevolent celestial being that acts as an intermediary between heaven and earth, especially in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Zoroastrianism.

A representation of such a being, especially in Christianity, conventionally in the image of a human figure with a halo and wings.

angels Christianity The last of the nine orders of angels in medieval angelology. From the highest to the lowest in rank, the orders are: seraphim, cherubim, thrones, dominations or dominions, virtues, powers, principalities, archangels, and angels.

A guardian spirit or guiding influence.

A kind and lovable person.

One who manifests goodness, purity.

In the Hebrew Bible, angels often appear to people in the shape of humans of extraordinary beauty, and often are not immediately recognized as angels (Genesis 18:2, Genesis 19:5; Judges 6:17, Judges 8:6; 2 Samuel 29:9). Some fly through the air, some become invisible, sacrifices touched by some are consumed by fire, and some may disappear in sacrificial fire. Angels, or the Angel, appeared in the flames of the thorn bush (Genesis 16:13; Judges 6. 21, 22; 2 Kings 2:11; Exodus 3:2). They are described as pure and bright as Heaven; consequently, they are said to be formed of fire, and encompassed by light, as the Psalmist said (Psalm 104:4): "He makes winds His messengers, burning fire His ministers." Some verses in the Apocrypha/Deuterocanon depict angels wearing blue or red robes but no such reference occurs in the Protestant books.

Though superhuman, angels can assume human form; this is the earliest conception. Gradually, and especially in post-Biblical times, angels came to be bodied forth in a form corresponding to the nature of the mission to be fulfilled—generally, however, the human form. Angels bear drawn swords or other destroying weapons in their hands—one carries an ink-horn by his side—and ride on horses (Numbers 22:23, Joshua 5:13, Ezekiel 9;2, Zechariah 1:8 et seq.). A terrible angel is the one mentioned in 1 Chronicles 21:16,30, as standing "between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand". In the Book of Daniel, reference is made to an angel "clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: his body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in color to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude" (Daniel 10:5-6). This imagery is very similar to a description in the book of Revelation. Angels are thought to possess wings (Daniel 9:21), as they are described in the Bible, and depicted in Christian, Jewish and Zoroastrian art. They are commonly depicted with halos.

Purpose

In the Bible, angels are a medium of God's power; they exist to execute God's will. Angels reveal themselves to individuals as well as to the whole nation, to announce events, either good or bad, affecting humans. Angels foretold to Abraham the birth of Isaac, to Manoah the birth of Samson, and to Abraham the destruction of Sodom. Guardian angels were mentioned, but not, as was later the case, as guardian spirits of individuals and nations. God sent an angel to protect the Hebrew people after their exodus from Egypt, to lead them to the promised land, and to destroy the hostile tribes in their way (Ex. 23.20, Num. 20.16).

I feel that angels are an embodiment of everything we feel is good and lovely,protective, well mannered and all that, while demons are the exact opposite. From the little that we get from the scriptures, angels are also messengers and are spirit beings (though they could decide to manifest themselves in the flesh). As a result of the fact that angels are spirits, and we (at least for now) are still humans, it is good we drop this search for the humanness of angels and look to making ourselves live life helping humanity to the extent where we will be called angels on earth.

N.B

As a human being, there is a limit to how much you can comfortably get to find out without getting yourself into spiritual trouble (Like trying to know what God looks like)

Layi,

Thank you for attesting to my many contributions. I really do appretiate the understanding of God's Word that you have demonstrated. Continue to stand for truth...there aren't very many of your kind.

Angela K,

I believe your testimony and i thank God for inspiring you to testify. 

Great peter,

To say you do not believe means you have sufficiently considered all available information. Just because you have not seen an angel apppear with wings dosnt mean there are no angels with wings. Angels could take different forms in order to carry out an assignment.

They could even appear with the exact semblance of real existing people.

Exodus 25:20

- "And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be."

Kings 6:27

-" And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house."   

Cerubims are a special kind of angels.

When i hear testimonies or prophesies, the only time i can confidently term them as untrue is when they contradict God's word. This one dosn't.

FABIAN:I believe there are angels always watching over us, sometimes God sends them down to help us and they come in human form............. You may laff at me if you like, but that's my conviction.

I agree with you fabian,they are sent by God to help us in our needs as humans.

They only come in their natural white robe and style to make you believe if you doubt they exist.......

Our ever loving God is still in the business of using His angels to minister to His children in miraculous ways.

Let's just depend on Him for more divine intervention in our lives

@ goodguy.

The Angel in question actually stood by the doorside leading to my room (I was laid on the bed that night), was in bright shining white robe, with golden like hair and like that for 5mins, just smiling at me, before I finally slept off.

Suddenly in my sleep I found myself in heaven, in fact it was the same Angel that took my hands and led me to the throne where I heard them singing the song in Rev 4 vs 11, Thou art worthy O Lord to receive glory, honour and power, for Thou art created all things and for Thy pleasure, they are and were created. I saw the four and twenty elders spoken of in Rev 4 vs 10, but didnt quite see the PERSON on the throne

It's an encounter I will never forget in my life.

On the 6th of July 2003, my whole family was down and was admitted in Light Hospital (that's my family hospital) around Alimosho area in Lagos. I have 3 kids, 2boys and 1 girl. My 2nd boy had blood transfussion and was unconscious till Wed, 9th of July 2003, by 12noon, when the unexpected happened.

He was on the hospital bed in the same room with us all, the 5 of us. He just opened his eyes like that and started smiling, then laughing, which was surprising to the 4 of us. Suddenly, he just bursted out laughing so loud, which made me stop him and asked what the problem is, to which he said loudly, "HE SAID IT IS FINISHED". Daddy, cant you see him, he's playing with me now, tickling my sides and making fun of me. My wife then asked him who it was, to which he said its an angel that came with Jesus Christ and they were about going when he started laughing.

I ran to tell the Doctor the story, which was told ward round in the hospital and people started flocking to our room. The most surprising thing is that, the boy said he's hungry and asked to be given hot amala, which he finished with orisirisi meat, another tests were conducted on us all and we were discharged from the hospital that same day.

Up till now, we've not gone for any treatment in the hospital o.

How do u know angels are made in GOD's image like humans.

@goodguy.

I pointed out ur error and u went to delete it making me look like what?

U should have made a post accepting ur mistake rather than modifying. A lot of people accept their mistakes..HA, scorpio, wesley etc.

Its not a stain to ur image...rather accepting it openly is a plus. Its not d best.

Layi that is it.

They appear as humans without wings.

When we talk of celestial body, we are talking of heavenly body.

When God created us, He did so in His own image and that is the image of God Himself.

God did not create man and angels with wings.

Proove it that angels do not have wings OR better still tell her the kind of proove you're seeking.

I know from scriptures that angels are made wit wings. Celestial beigns (aviaries) were made after their order.

If they apear to people wit wings is another issue but methinks they appear as humans.

When i was younger i met with my guardian Angel. I woke up from sleep in the middle of the night, it was raining heavily and eventually NEPA took light. I was so scared, i sneaked into my sister's bed. Then something caught my eyes, at the corner of the room i saw someone with his back to the wall.He was average height, wore a white robe and had wings. He just stood there watching him and i just was so scared but i sleep off immediately!

This is for real.

Angels truely exist. Unlike in the days of the Bible when angels appeared to people, glowing in white shiny clothings, these days, they mostly appear in human forms. Some come to you specifically in form of beggars. I've had so many ecounters like that.

Angels are messengers of God. They are our Guardians and they answer your call when you call them or send them out. You need not wait to see them in the physical everytime because they can come in different form.  Seek them and believe.
