Moss, we know what Daniel 9:21 says, that it was a vision. That he did see him flying swiftly. But no where does it say they had wings. They are angelic beings, not visible with the naked eye. Have no bodies unless they manifest themselves in human bodies. And no where that I could find in Scripture are we told those that appeared in the form of man had wings. Daniel 8:15 mentions that he had the appearance of a man but no wings were mentioned. We know that through Art the Church had artist make many kinds of images of angels and most of them were with wings.
---Mark_V. on 8/11/11


Eloy, none of the passages you cited say that Angels have wings, and many of them don't mention angels at all. Did you put them there as evidence, hoping no one would fact check? I would love to see a quoted passage that says that angels have wings
---Sera on 8/6/11


In Ezekiel 10, it has a very detail description of the cherubim. It does has wing and also wheels and hands and 4 faces. Please read the source.
---Xen on 4/5/11


In the book of daniel: 9v21 we hear dat Angels have wings, in the book of hebrews: 13v2 we hear that Angels can be any visitor in your house, in the book of matthew: 1v20 we hear that an Angel appeared to Joseph in a dream. So, what we need to understand that angels can appear in a form of a dream, a humanbeing, and even in a spirtual form. In psalms 91v11 : "God will put his angels incharge of you to protect you wherever you go. Angels are super-natural beings, even the demons are angel, because the bible discribe them as fallen angels.
---Moss on 1/27/11


Jim, the substance of angels is not clay and earthen as humans are, but the substance of angels is spirit and heavenly, and in their natural form they have wings as eagles and storks. Angels usually take on the shape of humans and they have great wings coming out of their shoulders and they have smaller wings coming out of the sides of their calves in order to fly around up in the sky. They radiate white light, and they can also appear (be solid) and disappear (become invisible). I have seen angels and they had feathers coming out of their calves and they were flying around going in and out of the clouds up in the sky.

Luke 7:24

"And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?"


The word used in there is the Greek word Aggelos, which is the ONLY word used to speak of Angels. Angels Mean Messengers. Does John have winged friends? NO!

Hebrews 13 is talking about Entertaining Beleivers. Being hospitible to ALL that come to your house, because you you dont know if its another part of the body of christ you are helping.

Messengers are Anyone God speaks through. Thats why it wrong to say Angels are ANYTHING other then what they are called. Messengers. NOT winged creatures.
---Rob on 12/6/10


Eloy...Heb.13:2 says to show hospitality to strangers and by doing so some have shown hospitality to angels without knowing.
Eloy..If all angels have wings did they tuck them under their clothing?
---JIM on 12/6/10


In Daniel, Gabriel "Was Made To Fly" It doesnt say anything about him having wings. If i threw a baseball it would be made to fly through the air...does a baseball have wings?

In Revelation 8:13 The Angel That it mentions, Doesnt say the angel has wings, and Actually, the Proper translation(remeber now, The bible wasnt written in English) Is Eagle...its a refference to Rome...Honestly it would tak a whole lot more than this blog to explain it.

Again, Just because an "angel" is flying doesnt mean it has wings. Angels DONT have wings.
Again

Cherubs = Wings

Seraphim = Wings

Angels = Wingless( NO WINGS )

Angels DO NOT = Cherubs

Angels DO NOT = Seraphim
---Rob._K on 12/6/10


bonnie, According to the scriptures, the angel Gabriel has wings, and so do the other angels, how else do you think they would fly. Please Read- Daniel 9:21+ Revelation 8:13+ 14:6.

Angels have a human shape like men and woman, but they are able to fly because they do have wings. The scriptures say so: Psalm 18:10, 99:1, Isaiah 6:2-6, 37:16, Ezekiel 9, Ezekiel 10, Zechariah 5:9-11, Daniel 9:21, Luke 1:11,19,26, Revelation 7:1-3, 8:13, 12:7-9, 14:6-12, 15, 18:1-5, 20:1-3, and I myself have seen angels flying up in sky with their wings.
---Eloy on 12/5/10


Acctually i correct myself.

Gabriel is NOT mentioned to be an Arch Angel. Only Michael is.
---Rob.K on 12/4/10


No. Angels Do NOT have wings. Cherubim have wings(Strongs # 3742,3743. Mentioned roughly 37 times.)

Seraphim have wings(Strongs # 8314. Mentioned in Isaiah 6)

Cherubim, and Seraphim are NEVER called Angels. Becaue they aren't. They are Heavenly Creatures, Not Angels. Angels are never said to have wings. Becasue Angels DONT have wings. Angel just means messenger.

Micahel and Gabriel are ArchAngels(Chief messengers/princes).
NOT Cherubim.
---Rob.K on 12/3/10


In the Bible, only 2 angels are named, Gabriel and Michael. There is no biblical indication, except by man's indirect interpretation, that Seraphim and Cherubim are angels. Yes, they are heavenly beings but there is no direct biblical correlation except we would also call the 24 elders in Revelations angels. The only direct biblical reference we have to heavenly beings having wings are of the order of Cherubim and Seraphim.
---Bunmi on 3/25/10


yes angels have wings, isa:6:1: in the year that king uzziah died i saw also the lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
isa:6:2: above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings, with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. kria7734
---Kris on 3/13/10


Messenger angels which appear to us as adult men do not, however Cheribum and Seraphim who never leave the throne have multiple pairs.
The descriptions of angels run the gamut from normal adult men, terrorizing huge figures with powerful voices and shining bronze extremities, to the very strange discription of angels at the throne with multiple eyes, heads and the like.
Every time I read the description in Revelation 4:6-9 I come away thinking wow, that sounds wierd.

Let us make man in our image in our likeness.
Male and Female were they created.
Not male and female, God mother and god father=Elohim.
But the jerusalem that above is free and she is our mother. Ether way is alot of false doctrines out there.
---EMD on 3/5/10


When God gave Moses instructions for building the Ark of the Covenant he told him to put angels on top with their wings spreading across it.
---Fay on 2/26/10


JoelV -- When the Bible says "Let US create man in OUR image," the "We" refers to God and Jesus (pre-incarnate) -- not God and the angels. The angels are created beings, just as we are.

knowledge of the bible must be looked at in simple terms. 1st question who is the lord of the hosts?? and the beginning issiah speaks of how the lord of the house cleanses..or justifies the iniquities of those who've never felt pain, why punish them they wont LEARN=KNOWLEDGE from their mistake but continue to follow or create iniquities...cherubim are a type of angel.. pure clean. the one with love filled heart...mow i ask why will the seraphim angel have 6 wings??? why cover his face? who cover his feet? jesus our lord who justified ALL OUR SIN showed his feet so why must this type of angel cover his?? i ask what is a seraphim i understand an angel because it says so..but what kind of angel??? ok nice talking bye.

If angels had wings, so would we.

"Let US create man in OUR image..." (Genisis 1:26)
---JoelV. on 12/7/09


did the angels in the form of men that appeared to Abram have wings? did the two angels in the form of men that appeared to Lot have wings? Did the angel in the form of man outside Christs' tomb have wings ? I believe you will not find any angels with wings or in the form of women.
---Michael on 11/17/09


Since the bible was written over who knows how many hundreds years by how many different people. No one can answer these and many other questions. Angles are part of these stories. As far as I'm concerned these are just more stories.

please post scripture that states cherabs are angels, im not finding the one where god states: "oh by the way cherabs are a type of angel and also seraphs are too." youre just repeating what you were told.
---sonofturbo on 10/5/09


Yes, and Cherubims are angels. However, rarely are they described as having wings in the bible. Pictures of angels with wings are without bases. Angels are spiritual-beings, created by God. Their main jobs is serving God. Angels are superior in nature compare to man's nature---have superhuman power and knowledge. And will help excute judgment [Matt. 13:41-43,49-50].

cherabim and seraphim are not angels. there are different types of spiritual beings cherabim are not angles angels are not seraphim and seraphim are not cherabim, non e of them are god and we are none of them either. there is a reason why they have different names. angel is not a generice term, you people who are calling cherabs and seraphs angels are jehovas witnesses im sure, just enough knowledge to open your mouths about something you dont know anything about. there is never any scripture in the bible saying angels have wings. yes they fly, they are spirtual beings ofcourse they can fly, why would they need wings?

Does God have wings?
Psalms 57:1: "Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast."

Cherubim have wings

2Ch 3:11 And the wings of the cherubims [were] twenty cubits long: one wing [of the one cherub was] five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing [was likewise] five cubits, reaching to the wing of the other cherub.

No chubby little babies, these cherubs!

Seraphims have wings

Isa 6:2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings, with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

Angels have wings:

Rev 8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth....

No delicate, effeminate beings, as are popular today!
---Donna66 on 6/12/09


is their really 4 ark angels that protect mankind or do humans relie on the prayers from their heart, GOD must have over trillon ears to hear prayers, and also have 60 trillon languages to hear us
HE is one Magnificent fellow
I hope and pray to HIM that our human life can start looking after Mother Earth as well as our Human resources, our people do not listen to the word of GOD, but listen to human, Our way of life will soon fade away and all human life will fade to exsist
Take a look at the beauty that HE has given us, Heavens and the stars, sun water Clouds rain, thunder, lightning, everything in this universe belong to HIM, including the Human race, give GOD credit for all this

Antonio ... What makes you think angels don't have wings?
---alan_of_UK on 7/20/08


you are right, angels don't have wings, but they can fly, and in past times seeing an angel in human form flying in the sky, would asume that they had wings in order for them to fly.

"Angel" is a generic term; there are different kinds of angels, as we see in replies here.

Remember that visions (such as Isaiah 6) are given in terms that the visionary and others can understand. They demonstrate spiritual realities that most of us cannot accurately describe or perceive in this fallen world.

The true appearances of the different angels we will be able to perceive in the World to Come.

Cherub/cherubim seem to be the guardian angels. Ezekiel 28:14

Genesis 3:24 - After He drove the man out, he placed on the east side ot the Garden of Eden, cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

He mounted the cherubim and flew;
he soared on the wings of the wind.
2 Samuel 22:11

1 Samuel 4:4 - leading to Exodus 25: 17-22 - on THE ARK (not Noah's) the Cherbim have wings. -verse 20

What will we do about Ezekiel 28:16

Isaiah 6:2 - Isaiah's Commission
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled temple.
Above him were seraph each with 6 wings:
with 2 wings they covered their faces,
with 2 wings they covered their feet,
and with 2 wings they were flying.

seraphs = seraphim = angelic beings

The "creatures" with wings were cherubim, not angels. The Bible calls them "creatures". They were representative of a creature that could transport between Heaven and Earth but were not angels. Angels resemble humans as they were created in the image of God, just as humans were! People don't have wings, therefore angels can't have wings!
---Wendell on 5/19/05


Bonnie: Isa.6:2 points out that there are different angels-cherubims and seraphims, some having some wings other having multiple wings.
---Pierr7958 on 5/19/05


Rev 4:8 and Rev 14:6 tell something about angels. 4:8 tells of 4 creatures with 6 wings. 14:6 an angel flying to spread salvation to the world. So in other words, angel can have wings and no wings. Anyway, God instructed Moses to make two angels with wings to cover the Ark. See the records how Jesus was being raised to heaven without wings. Check Isa 6:2 angel with wings again. It apparently is dependent upon God the creator. We will be wingless when we are in heaven for eternity.

Cherubims and Seraphims are heavenly beings. They have wings. Angles are sometimes in white and shining clothes. I don't know if Cherubims and Seraphims are kinds of angels. There is the archangel. We are not to worship angels.
