Have you ever met an Angel? What do they look like? Man has always been fascinated with Angels. Artists have painted them for centuries. Hollywood has television shows and movies with angels depicted in them.
However, most of these are devoid of God's revelation, The Bible. Did you know there are 273 references in scripture to angels? So what do angels really look like according to the bible?
1. Angels often appear like men.
Even though angels take on human appearance and become visible on occasion, they are spirit beings who do not have flesh and blood.
"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it." — Hebrews 13:2
When necessary, God will direct one of His invisible angels to become visible in the life of a believer in order to accomplish a divinely ordained purpose.
In Genesis 19:1 two angels came to Sodom in the evening. Lot was sitting in the gate and invited them into his house to spend the night.
They had taken on human form, because in verse 5 the men of the city came to his house and called out to Lot where are the "men" who came to you tonight?
"And they called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them.”" — Genesis 19:5
2. Angels often appeared in an awe inspiring presence.
Daniel saw this stunning visual of one angel:
"I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. 6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze..." — Daniel 10:5-6
Daniel said that the men with him didn't see the angel, yet sensing the presence he saw, they ran away in terror. He himself turned pale and all his strength left him.
"So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed, and I retained no strength." — Daniel 10:8
3. Angels often appeared with the appearance of light.
When an angel came to Peter's cell to release him:
"And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell." — Acts 12:7
In Matthew 28, an angel of the Lord descended from Heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.
"His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. " — Matthew 28:3
