Do We Have Female Angels In Heaven? by Emaimo: 1:11pm On Dec 31, 2015
I have been pondering for quit some times now owing to the fact that we guys like calling ladies angels. Through out the entire bible I have not heard of a female name given to any angels but male.
Now why do we call ladies angels when we fall in love? Are they not the ones who are supposed to call us angels?

Any contrary opinion is welcome

From Biblical point of view, there are no female Angels.

English Standard Version

Zechariah 5:9
Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, two women coming forward! The wind was in their wings. They had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven.

There are female and male angels, just as there are female and male demons,

And that verse to you suggest that there are female angels? Wonderful!

Women were seen as nothing at the time becuase God was a sexist, but thank God he had a change of heart and accepted civilization, today women are seen as something.

I don't think they were angels. The fact that they had wings doesn't mean they were angels

I'm glad you said-"I think..." Those beings were servants of God-obviously, there were angels! Don't doubt God's holy word!

Korean girl who had revelations of hell saw female angels with Jesus

Hey guys, I had a terrific vision in Italy. I dream that a ghost was trying to do something funny, so I shouted JESUS. I saw that a child was immediately saved from dying at the hand of this ghost. At that same moment, the scene changed... I suddenly found myself surrounded by some glorious looking angels.

The first set of angels closest to me were 3 in number, and they looked so normal that they could have been mistaken for ordinary men. They wore straight plain-white garments; they weren't tall at all but were of average heights. They seemed to me to have spent more time on earth (I believe, acting as guarding angels) because they did not radiate heavenly light. I don't think that looking normal like us changed the fact that they were angels.

My gaze moved up to another set of angels that have wings, standing close nearby, maybe about 2 or 3 in number. I was astonished. They were very tall, radiating the light and power of GOD. They looked so awesome and breath taking. My amazement was that they were female angels in the sense that they looked feminine in appearance... their faces, hair styles and body curves [like their breasts] were definitely feminine looking. And they were heads and shoulders taller than the 3 guardian angels. Then I looked up above them. My gaze fell on their winged arch angel leader, who was approximately 7 feet tall. This was a really very tall angel that carried self with authority. The angel looked so muscular that you could feel the strength and power oozing out of the body. The muscular nature made this angel to look like a male warrior but the feminine appearance bespoke of servitude. Each of these angels wore different color of dresses not necessarily white but nonetheless light colored, seamless gown with vests.

Then I noticed a third set of angels, whom the arch angel leader was talking with. They looked more different. They were giants, male looking angels, that towered above the winged angels, except for the arch angel leader who was almost as tall as them. They seemed like band of warring angels and though I did not count them, I think I saw 4 of them. (Just imagine that the tallest heights men can get to is roughly 8 feet and you were staring at a group of men who were well over 7 feet (or about 8 feet) tall. They would look approximately the same height in the sky when you look up at them.) They wore gowns, waist bands, and had on their feet buckled leather shoes. They radiated so much power and strength that I was by then very petrified. I could not stop looking at the arch angel and this band of angels. They simply communicated by thoughts... they were discussing in a language. I only perceived that the warring angels seemed to give the arch angel the information that the battle was already over. The arch angel leader also replied and said something that made them all happy and assured.

Then I woke up, and I was very astonished, to say the least... my theology that angels were men or at least male looking only, was being shattered and that agitated me. I could not argue with what I saw or get up out of bed... everything I saw did not make sense to me at all. How can I tell people that I saw female angels? My conclusion is that even though angels may look like a male or female (cherubs may look like an ox, eagle, man, or lion), they are not actually a man or woman or eagle or lion but are spirit beings. In that respect they are simply called 'angels' and since we consider male and female to be a 'man' when not referring to gender, angels should not be referred by gender, a connotation which will be out of context, because they cannot marry or have sex. But of course, if an angelic gender simply means looking like a man or woman in the ultimate sense, then I agree that there are male and female angels. Moreover my vision seemed to sanction that against my wilder judgment.

PLEASE MY VISION IS NOT WRITTEN TO HOLD ANY PROOF OR DOCTRINE. I NEVER THOUGHT BEFORE THEN THAT THEIR WAS A FEMALE OR FEMALE LOOKING ANGEL... SO I DO NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS DREAM. I ONLY HOPE THAT THIS WAS JUST A MERE DREAM... ONLY THAT THE DREAM LOOKED SO REAL LIKE A VISION, ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS SURROUNDED BY THESE ANGELS, I HAD TIME TO OBSERVE THEM.

Angels are genderless but can assume any human form when on a mission to earth. The angels in the Bible are described in the masculine because of the concept of male superiority. Cherubims (guardian angels) who mostly dwell on earth have feminine appearance but still can assume any form.

I have to agree with you. I have read different accounts of people who have had close contact with these beings and all of them attests to the fact that, they are feminine looking Angels.
All of the accounts states specifically that, the Angels responsible for caring for Children in heaven are feminine looking.

Thanks for your honest opinion, I agree with you on this matter.

Lol angels take on human form on earth but in their true existence they are genderless, they don't urinate or have sex so no need for gender but they are in male form
Re: Do We Have Female Angels In Heaven? by lovebishop(m): 6:29am On Jan 12
I have one female angel and 2 male angels. I have seen them on some occasions.
