Are There Female Angels

Recently while witnessing a woman said to me, I once saw an angel and the angel I saw was a woman. Immediately red flags jumped up in my mind. Why do you think the red flags jumped up? Am I crazy or was there a legitimate warning in what this woman said?

Something happened with me a few months ago. I was half sleep, half awake and more or less reviewing my prayer list in my mind. I was about to attend church for the first time in ten years.
A short vision of a young girls with several children following her around a yard or park. They moved toward me as my point of view was as a smaller child than they, when she came before me and simply said, "Go seek God."
Now, had I been sleeping, this could have been a dream, but I wasn't fully asleep, but conciously reviewing my payers in my mind. Were it not the day that I returned to church, it might not have stuck with me, but I was and it did. Angel? Holy Spirit? Either way, it was a message to me that I should not chicken out.
---Doug on 11/10/10

The red flag jumped up, probably because there are no female angels or children angels. Only men depicted as angels in the Bible.

Don't you know there are only god and his angels in heaven...... sexuality is a worldly thing, or there would be births in heaven DOH!
---Carla on 8/5/10\\

And where are the souls of the departed? They become neither gods nor angels in the next life, Carla.
---Cluny on 10/20/10

loveasalways--Sorry, we don't become angels when we die, but we do get new bodies. (nobody knows exactly what we will look like).
As you know, English uses "he" when referring to individuals who may be either male or female.
Jesus' deciples were men, thus he used the pronoun "he" most of the time speaking to them. But woman can be saved in exactly the same way as men. The Bible says that to God there really is no "male" or "female". Jesus died for both men and women... the requirements for salvation is the same for both.
---Donna66 on 10/19/10

I can never be an angel as a girl? Ever? That's so unfair. All the boys get to be but none of the girls? Why? I really want to go to Heaven. The bible doesn't say we literally become angels but you know what I mean. Like the angels is more like it. (Book of Matthew) Jesus loves everybody. It always bothered me that only men can be saved. Except a MAN be born again....what about a woman or anyone else? It says nothing about women. Then I remember EVE took the bite of the fruit first............

---Lawrence on 8/5/10

Humans were created in the image of God, as far as I know, angels were not. In Genesis, (The Message version), God says "Reflecting God's nature, He created them male and female." Any other Bible will also point that out, too.
---Mary on 8/3/10

Angels were created in the image of God, the Father. Therefore they must be male.The reason for the lack of appearance of female Angels in the Holy Bible is simple. They do not exist.
---J_Cartier on 8/3/10

Larry, that was a great answer concerning angels. Good work brother
---MarkV. on 4/13/10

No, there are no female angels. Celestial bodies are spirit not gender. They were created complete, did not and do not mature or reproduce.
Angels in the bible are named and appear as men because the male is the progenitor of life and reflects the character of our Holy "Father" who sends them as messengers, guardians and at times merchants of judgment.

Angels appear human-like for our benefit.

Cherabim and Seraphim are also angels and from the biblical discription strange and frightening to the human eye.
---larry on 4/13/10

Demons can appear as angels. They can appear as either male or female. They are the angels who were expelled from Heaven by God.
---Betty on 4/13/10

Rita, the story is a vision, presented in a metaphor. Nothing mentioned is literal with the exception of the Lord of Host who speaks to Zechariah. The six vision is about the flying scroll which depicts the Word of God which has been disobeyed by Israel and the entire world. The vision talks about the wicked system as a basket with a women held captive inside, and the people of Israel are seen as pieces of grain. Since the storks are unclean birds these must be agents of evil, demonic forces, protected of the secularism who set up the final system of evil. God allow them to set up the world system that the Lord distroys when He returns (Rev. 19:11-16). The destination of the women bearing the basket was Shinar, and older word designing Babylon.
---MarkV. on 4/12/10

The red flag jumped up in your mind at the mention of "female" angels. Have you not read your bible, Zachariah 5:9 states that the angel were female and that there were two of them.
---Rita on 4/12/10

I believe that God will let you see an angle as a woman if you feel safer that way.I also believe that an angel can take what ever form that God will allow.I have read many accounts of people seeing angels and they have been seen as women,men,even animals.

Every body knows I'm weird, Only a weirdo would believe that a God and his son is living in them. Only a weirdo would talk to an invisible God and his Son, I lay hands on the sick, speak with new tongues, Tread on serpents and scorpions. I have drank deadly things and it did not hurt me. Not on purpose.
I fell three stories, got up, knocked the dust off, and went back to work. I drove my car under an 18 wheeler traveling 55 miles an hour
and did not get a scratch on me or my car. I walked through a fire and got in a car an drove away without even a burn or the smell of smoke on my clothes, I would say you are right
I am weird. Or maybe normal for the kingdom of God. And that aint the half of it.

---Betty on 6/15/09

It is very powerful what the definition of a
word will do in your mind. It will create an image and that will be the bases of your faith. The word angel means messenger that is all that it means, the Word Apostle is the same definition. The Angel that appeared to John and gave him Revelation to the seven Churches, Told John: do not worship me I am a man just like you. He was not an Angel as the Angels of Heaven but an Angel that was once a Man, But now was the messenger of Jesus.
The Apostles were the Angels/messengers of Jesus.The Church is the Bride of Christ, so as far as Jesus is concerned all his church is female Angels. They are all his Eve that came forth out of his side as blood and water.
---exzucuh on 6/15/09

Angels are sexless - male neuter. We read in the Bible of such angel names as Michael and Gabriel. Judges 13:3-21 An angel of the Lord appeared unto Manoah and his wife a few times. They said he looked like a man, yet they discovered he was not a man, for he ascended in the flame toward heaven from off the altar.

I believe angels do come in human form, depending on the situation. Humans are male and female and angels can take both forms, and even appear in dreams. If it's dealing with pro-life, anti abortion issues, the angel will come as a woman with a stroller. It would look pretty weird to see a man with a stroller, wouldn't it? The angel took female form. All she said was "don't worry, the person you will marry will be as pro life as I appear here". She appeared as a teenager. It's rare to see teenagers with babies and someone with a stroller seems dedicated and pro-life. Angels are NOTORIOUS for saying "Fear not" in the Bible. The angel's name was Alyssa Malachi translated to Angel of the LORD. Angel sent message, job done.
---ACallforaction on 6/12/09

Well, Emcee, if I misunderstood you early I am sorry. I was just stating that I don't believe angels have gender, but I do believe that can take what ever form the need to. Agreed. But I do have to say this. The bible does mention angels' food. The manna that feel from heaven. Ps 78:25 "Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full." Meat in this verse doesn't mean flesh meat, it means grain. And Manna is believed to have been like grain and about the size of corriader seeds.
---Tammy on 5/26/08

SCW, scripture mentions two "angels" by name, Gabriel, and Michael who is called Archangel. Although, you may be correct in that many believe Michael to be a symbolic name for Christ, so your statement about Gabriel being the only angel named in scripture would be right. I remember doing a study to find out if Michael was indeed a symbolic name for Christ and didn't really come to any definitive answer. :-)

I don't know that they are Men or Women. As I understand it they are genderless meaning that they have no organs with which to reproduce.

I think Angels used to be called "He" in USA,now it really comes down to indiviual perception. In the Spiritual Realm God isn't limited by mans thinking but I do know He tailors whatever He shows someone to their personal sphere of receiving. God makes what He shows fit our ability to relate to how He presents it. When I saw the female Angel hovering and after the Clerk was attacked,I thought a mother or some female,besides me, was praying for him,thus female angel representation.
---Darlene_1 on 5/23/08

A while ago, I wrote a Christmas fantasy story and i addressed an angel with "he". A daugher of an American friend of mine told her father that I should have addressed the angel with "she".

How is an angel addressed in the US, he or she?

I know that in my language and also in the Italian languages an angel is a "he".
---Caring on 5/23/08

Angels are neither male or female, for they are spirits. Hebrews 1:13-14. Angels are like the soul of a person but not incorporeal. When angels appear to a person, they were always in human form. They can take on any human form, male and female. Even thought they may be in a woman's human form, that doesn't mean they themselves are female, vice versa with male human form. Angels are messengers from God. They are ministering spirits to the people of God.

I was saved at 11 years old, I began to have Prophetic or instructive dreams or visions-pictures of things I don't know already. Twice I prayed for a friend in the hospital,God showed me a marble staircase going up into heaven and there were Angels of every size and discription on both sides of the staircase singing,the woman was a singer,and I knew they were welcoming her home. There were huge tall ones,medium ones,children size small ones all with wings. What a reception!!
---Darlene_1 on 5/22/08

Emcee, I am not sure how to respond to your comment lol... Angels have no need of gender. They are not human. They do not reproduce. They came into being cause God spoke them into being. They are God's messengers. No gender, doesn't mean no form. Of course they would have form. Read the biblical scriptures on angels and you will find the types of angels and what form they took when they came to people. Even the angels around the throne of God that praise him day and night have some kind of form.
---Tammy on 5/22/08

Years ago praying at a Prayer Meeting God showed me,with eye of the Spirit,an angel with short hair and "female" in long white robe,no wings,hovering over road right in front of a service station grocery store. I prayed for that place and the people. Within the next two weeks a young male clerk there was threatened by four robbers,he fought and whipped them all and they fled the scene. He wasn't hurt,they got nothing. No doubt,God showed me,I knew to pray and God helped him whip them.

Well, I still stick to my opinion that angels are without gender. Yes, the biblical angels all are in male form. But that doesn't mean, cause angels are beings of light, that they couldn't come in other forms. Honestly don't know. The real question is in hearing the story the lady told about the angel what happened? Did the angel come in peace, did she feel comforted my the angel, did it have a message??? All important questions. Cause devils can also come in form to mislead. God's spirit is truth.
---Tammy on 5/21/08

Within biblical texts angels always appear as men and never as women or children.>>>A warning. do not believe her. Stay clear of her. She is an deceiver. Warnings are good. So are reg flags. You are not crazy. Study for yourself, and find out some things. Very important.
---catherine on 5/21/08

Angels can appear in any form. But there is nothing in the bible saying that angels have gender. Honestly they have no need of gender. They will appear to people however they need to for what fits the situation, if they need to appear. Whether it be a woman, man, or child, young or old. Angels are beings of light, they are made out of God's glory. They don't have human flesh and don't have human desire, so would have no need for gender.
---Tammy on 5/21/08

I think the Bible is clear that angels are sexless...although I am fairly certain that every angel mentioned in the Bible appeared as a male. My guess is that they can appear how they want.

f.f. , I didn't say that God's holy angels are born-again. They are sinless. They are completely obedient to the will of God. They are totally different creations and angels will never be men, and men will never be angels. The Bible says that the angels don't completely understand salvation, because they never needed It, never experienced it, like man has, they are sinless. They are very intelligent, but they desire to look into Salvation(1 Peter 1:12), do you know what I mean?

Angels: messengers of the Lord, ministering spirits, speaks as the voice of God himself , some do Gods will, minister to men on the earth, angels mentioned by name, Jesus often spoke of angels, we are warned against worship of angels, fallen angels, a divine messenger. Angels are mentioned at least 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit for guidance, comfort, and knowledge and understanding. Are angels walking among us? Would we know?

This sounds like a woman who may have been involved with, or listened to, some new age ideas. She may have had some experience with "spiritualism" or goddess worship. If so, red flags should be raised. On the other hand, she may have dreamt or imagined visitation by a female angel because angels are normally depicted as female. Perhaps she will tell you more. She surely needs the Lord and a strong Christian witness. It's something you must discern with the help of the HS.

---Jack on 6/2/06

Mima, to be honest I dont know. But I have a friend that is involved in what I believe to be a cult but his church insists that all angels are male. His rational is that they all have male names. I think it is because that we have assigned those names as male. As a person in law enforcement our patron saint, and no I dont believe in patron saints, is the Archangel Michael which in French is Michelle. I really dont think what sex they are is important.
