Q. I would like your opinion on angels. Why are they always pictured as having wings? I think they’re God’s heavenly messengers so when God created them they can go through space at will. I picture it like when the rapture happens. We will have no wings. Jesus Christ in his new body left earth to heaven needing nothing special. What is your opinion? Thank you, and may God bless you for all you do for Him.
A. The notion of angels having wings comes more from artists’ renderings than from the Bible. While Cherubim have wings (Rev. 4:8) they’re of a different order than regular angels who are usually mentioned in the Bible as appearing in human form.
