Mary, this is the other Mark. I also have seen angels many times. In my life I believe God send many angels to bring me to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. This were not visions or dreams, but real angels in human form who were messengers of God that were put in my path. One angel, 76 years old sister would pray for me everyday, who gave me a gift box called a "Joy Box" with seven gifts in side, with messages from God. Another angel, would call me at night always when I needed someone to comfort me at night when I was suffering. They carried me through my tribulations and trials. Praise God for this angels.

Wow Mark! That is sooo awesome! I am sure I once saw an angel at my bedside too, I wasn't awake long enough to really appreciate it but it looked like a woman and beautiful--short hair but beautiful and she smiled at me and I went back to sleep! If this was an angel, I can't wait to meet her in Heaven!
---Mary on 3/25/11

I guess he was a Angel I never saw anybody disappear before and not since after. He was short 63 to 65 inches tall,hard to tell really because He was sitting down against my bed.I was a sleep and suddenly my eyes opened He was right in my line of view.He had blond hair,shoulder length,dark eyes,white robe that went all the way to the ankles with a piece of rope at the waist,white as paper.When I woke up He looked like he was daydreaming,slowly turned his head me and when he smiled at me it was like he was a young person,but had no teeth.White rays appeared above His face and He VANISHED! I would love to say that it changed my life completely,but I am flesh indeed!

My aunt (my mom's cousin) claims to talk to GOD and sees angels and messengers sent by GOD. Among other things she claims that they are 8 feet tall and somewhat men like but etheral. She also claims that she has been told about the "change" in 2012. That you have to prepare yourself the world will not end it will just cease to exist as we know it. That vision of souls wandering searching for GOD hungry for the WORD have been shown to her in visions. At this time people should gather and pray both to GOD and the intercession of Mary.

What do angels look like? Have you ever seen one?
Who can say for sure? There is no proof, only speculation. We have the probably fiction pictures with wings, and we have the theoretical accounts about strange encounters with human appearances. Since they are spirit beings, I would say they could alter their appearance. In some Bible accounts they caused fear, but in other human accounts, they were in human form so as not to cause fear or panic.

mima- Angels will not help you unless God tells them to. They have to wait for God to tell them what to do. You must understand this: an angel has to obey God and not man. They are ministers when He says so only.
---Betty on 5/12/09

Betty your answer indicates that you do not understand that all Christians have at least two angels accompanying them. Your answer also indicates that you did not read Hebrews 1:14," 14-Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" Notice in this scripture it says the Angels are sent forth to minister FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation. If you are saved you are an heir of salvation and therefore have angels that minister for you!!!!
---mima on 5/12/09

mima- Don't flatter yourself. Angels don't work for you - they work for God.
---Betty on 5/10/09

Because I believe I am an heir of salvation I believe the following verse gives me permission to use my angels."

Hebrews 1:14, "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.

How you ask do I use my angels, I use them by sending them out to people that I will meet, that will hear my message, and that then will receive the Lord Jesus Christ.

Some people think this is foolishness, I on the other hand thing is a wonderful way to prepare the hearts of men before you. When Jesus said that angels of the little ones do always behold the face of my father, that indicates to me that the angels find special flavor and work with the Lord!!!
---mima on 5/8/09

We all have a guardian angel at our side. Mine is very tall and strong, golden haired and skinned. He stands on my left hand side. I had this revealed to me in a clear dream. Whenever I face evil I know he is right beside me and will be with me beyond the grave. I don't pray to him though. I found this out during a nightmare. I reached for my husband on my left hand side In my dream but was amazed to find a much bigger 'person' there instead. About 9 feet tall. I was immediately comforted.

Angels do not have wings anywhere. They don't need wings to move about. People are not angels, angels are spirits. According to the Bible, Manoah (Samson's father) and his wife saw an angel and called him a man of God and an angel of the Lord. Judges 13:2-25. Therefore, he must have looked like a man. The wicked ones in Sodom saw the two angels and thought they were ordinary men. Also, Lot thought so at first.
---Betty on 5/7/09

In the book of Tobit the angel Raphael looked just like a man.
---JohnnyB on 4/30/09

The two different times that I saw an angel they appeared to be in need. Not dirty per se but poorly dressed and both times they requested something of me. The first time I quickly gave help. The second time I told the person I was not going the way they ask about a ride. First time I was alone. The second time my wife and son were with me. Both times I saw angels this fact did not occur to me until after the fact!
---mima on 4/30/09

Yes, bright as lighting and as fast.
---Liz on 4/25/09

I gotta go with Joseph on this. They look just like us... only much sleeker: with perfect teeth. They're fast, too. Really fast. But they ain't omnipresent. Only God's fast enough to be everywhere at the same time.
---BruceB on 4/19/09

Whatever I say you will doubt thinking that it is my own opinion so do an online KJV bible search for the word "angel." Don't just read the verses but the whole chapter. It surely will be a reading experience.

mima, I don't understand your response. It sounds like you're accusing me of being in denial that that man was an angel.

Remember I was a baby christian back then, how would I know how angels disguise themselves?

I recognize now that it very well could have been, but I am offended that you insinuate that I am in denial that I saw an angel.

I never denied it, just wasn't sure. I guess I expect angels to appear in white gowns.

I was 18 and caused a horrible car crash that should have killed me. Despite witnesses, nobody remembers the man who approached my car, wrapped me in a blanket and gave me hot coffee to drink until help arrived and prayed over me. I sought this man for a long time with ads in the paper, etc. Nobody recollected him being there but the blanket and coffee could not be explained away.

Yes, I believe that I saw an angel that day. I also believe that if we need to see one, they will appear in a form that we can trust and accept.

Btw, I walked out of the ER with a cane and severe sprains. No breaks or internal injuries despite the mass of wreckage.

---donna8365 to write this post,

I have never seen an angel, but I have had a man appear out of no-where when I had a flat tire on a very dark, wintry night, and it was about 9pm.

He pulled up beside my car, changed my tire and when I turned around to give him some money, he was gone. I never heard him pull away, just gone. Was that an angel disguised as a man so I wouldn't get scared? or was my tired fixed by someone who had a very quiet car and drove off into nowhere?
---donna8365 on 3/30/09

Is absolute open denial of a manifestation of an angel!!!
---mima on 3/31/09

I believe that they are omnipresent like God we can hear them. I also believe that we can see them when God manifests it.

If I ever see one, I'll let you know.

I imagine they are very tall, have white gowns on, and have the power to execute things on this earth.

My wife sees an angel whenever she looks at me :))

PS: Please don't tell her I said so!!!!

"What do angels look like?"

From this verse it appears as if they look just as we do "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Heb. 13:2

"Have you ever seen one?"

I have no idea. However, I have had experiences were a person has appeared seemingly out of nowhere and disappeared just as mysteriously.
---joseph on 3/30/09

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 invisable). Yes, they fly in and out of the clouds.

Angels are people like you and me. Here on earth. They appear when we are in great need.At the right moment. Sent by God. I believe. My husband,for instance, is an angel.
---Robyn on 3/28/09

Here is a way to think about it. If God decides to interact via an angel, obviously it will be for some purpose. It is that purpose that determines what the angel will look like, do and say.
Here is an example of men: Genesis 18:22 and here is an example of women: Zechariah 5:9.
---DavidA on 3/27/09

They're usually invisible, the main thing being how they are angels of God and so they are of God's own love and how this has them look to God. And this would be for us, too > "rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4) They are ministers to us of salvation > Hebrews 1:14, ministering for us to be changed into the image of Jesus, I would think > Romans 8:29, 1 John 4:17. And this will make us obedient in the beauty of God's love, so we can then see how they look, by being how they are. When they *appear*, God can have you know if they are *His* angels.
---Bill_bila5659 on 3/27/09

I have good reason to believe that I have seen an angel three different times. All appearances were men. All were middle age or younger. All were commonly dressed with almost nondescript physical features their appearance was very commonplace and it was not until later that I became aware of the fact that they were angels. I noticed also that they were all very soft-spoken. Once I was by myself the other times I was with my family. All incidents took place while we were traveling.

How they look like to themselves and God in their proper element is one thing, but it seems that they appear in the likeness of young men when they come to earth and deal with humans, from what we see of their appearances in the Bible.
