I have, at my own peril, questioned the existence of female angels because all the names given the angels of the Bible are male names and all the bodies that every biblical angel, named or unnamed, appeared in
were manifested in male form.  Now I am certain that I have missed something and that someone knows something I don’t because I almost never see a figurine or a picture of a male angel; and, of all those angels appearing in dreams and visions these days, seldom is any in male form.  They are most always female.  However, while I have surely missed something here, there is even a greater question I have.

The Bible says that angels are innumerable (Heb 12:22).  Given, they are ministering spirits, but they are spirits (Heb 1:13-14).  Neither do angels appear to die nor do they appear to marry. (Matt 22:23-32).  Now if angels are biblically represented in male form and given male names, they are all spirits, they are already innumerable, they don’t get married and they never die, why and how would they reproduce themselves?  Yet right there beside that woman angel that the Bible never mentions sits a naked baby with wings that the Bible also never mentions.  Where did he (Or she) come from???

I guess I am just full of questions and probably considered sometimes a nitpicker, but do you suppose this extra-biblical “stuff” we seem to believe about angels might be one of those traditions of men that make the word of God of none effect (Mark 7:13)?  And, might it be the very power of the angels (ministering spirits) in the midst of our gatherings that this “angelic” tradition renders impotent?

1 Cor 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
