What Do Angels Look Like


Many people often wonder what angels look like.
The Bible doesn’t tell us exactly what angels look like; in fact, they often are invisible to us, because they are spiritual beings who seldom take on any physical appearance.

At times, however, they do become visible. When the prophet Isaiah was given a vision of God’s majesty and glory, His throne was surrounded by angels. They were similar in appearance to humans, with faces and feet, but they also had wings and could fly (see Isaiah 6:1-3). When the angel announced Jesus’ birth to the shepherds outside Bethlehem, the Bible says that “the glory of the Lord shone around them” (Luke 2:9). On the other hand, angels sometimes took the appearance of ordinary men, and were only recognized as angels later (see, for example, Genesis 19).

God created the angels before the beginning of time, and they had one purpose: to be God’s servants. Today, angels watch continually over God’s people, to deliver them from evil and safeguard their entrance into heaven. We may not even think about them very much or realize their importance, but they still watch over us—and we should thank God for them. The Bible says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).

The angels’ work on our behalf should remind us of God’s love for us. At the same time, we are not to worship the angels or give undue attention to them. Christ alone is our Savior, and He alone is the One to whom we should look for our salvation. We must put your faith and trust in Him

One thought on “What Do Angels Look Like

  1. There was an amazing encounter with an angel in Hong Kong which I pray shall remain with me all of my life.

    Yes there have been many times when disaster was certain in my life yet unforeseen things happened which protected me from certain catastrophes.
