and perhaps more to the point, can humans become angels for a while?

This is a very Biblical question. In Hebrews there is a verse that talks about how we treat others. Unbeknownst to us we may be entertaining angels when we believe we are treating humans.

Yes. What you call ''Angels'' .. can take any form. actually, you are the one who choose the form they take, not them. but you are not aware of that. in other words, they would take any form that would help them to get the message to you in a way that your mind would understand and accept without resistance, fear or doubt. so this form, only exists in your mind and in the minds of any other human being who shares the experience with you. but they don't change their true from .. it's only a mental illusion.

So than what is their true form is it pure energy radiating light. Are we made in the image of God. Therefore they are as well?

(20 Oct '09, 19:02) flowingwater

Their true form is what we call Spirit. We are made in the image of our God, and they are made in the image of their God. and both of us were made in the image of the one God. imagine a tree that creates many different trees, and each tree creates fruit of the same kind. to this fruit, there is only one tree that it directy knows as a creator. but when this fruit grows to become a tree it realizes that there is another creator for all and that it's directly connected to it and was connected to it from the start. that's how it's like with us, and them. they know, and help us to know.

I know that the angels were create before us humans. I know they are made in the image of God but I thought you had a more direct explanation of their looks or appearance of their real selves. They are magnificent. For they are an higher up being than man.

Thanks for your answer and comments Adel.

the flesh is flesh dust to dust. and the spirit is spirit the light is light.enoch was human and made angel. then why look to the left or to the right? I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.

Angels can appear human. Only yesterday or the day before I heard a story of a child rescued by an angel, much along the lines of stories here

That was an nice story and oh so real as angels do this all the time but sometimes we are afraid and pass it off as an human or we just didn't see what we saw. Thanks for the story and the link.

(20 Oct '09, 19:17) flowingwater

I'm only guessing, but if they are powerful enough to move through planes at will, they could take any form they wish. Or perhaps as mentioned by Adel, they are able to take the form we need or wish.

Biblically speaking? No, but on a number of occasions, they appeared as humans (or took on the form of humans). The Bible differentiates between spiritual creatures and physical creatures, and it is only at death (according to Paul) that the physical body is transformed into a spiritual body: "So also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." (1 Corinthians 15:42-44)

Now, that's a biblical concept, since you're usually approaching these questions from a Christian perspective. Obviously there are other points of view about angels.

What real answer did you want to give me John about angels? Yes, I do approach from an bibical stand point because I know God is real and he loves us all so very much! But I am curious your knowledge is vast and it seems you can pull from many references of store houses of knowledge so on this one what answer did you want to give instead of the one you thought I was looking for from an bibical stand point? I know you have an library of information in your brains on many subjects and adding more everyday just watch out for the other too for the tree of knowledge covered both aspects John.

(23 Nov '09, 06:51) flowingwater

My primary definition of an angel is a spiritual being as distinguished from a physical being. My belief is that spiritual beings can manifest themselves is various forms, appearing to be human, for instance. No, I do not believe angels can "become" humans for a while, only appear as humans. Thank you for your flattery. I don't think my storehouse of knowledge is any greater than many of the others here, but I am always seeking more understanding and keeping an open mind.

(25 Nov '09, 08:04) John

The serpent is still out there beguilding and tricking humans so knowledge of both good and evil is out there since we open paradora's box and had eaten of the tree of knowledge many centuries ago who knows how long it was. Always remember to ask God and he will reveil to know the understanding you seek. For you are an true seeker of knowledge but with knowledge you must acquire understanding of the knowledge you have acquire otherwise it true meaning eludes us. Some knowlwedge comes with danger signs. Yes, you are so right there are so many people here with vast knowledge and understanding.

If you say an angel in a positive sixth density entity is an angel, then yes, I have channeled an entity named Aridif in the book I did and he was considered an angel by some. He is able to manifest himself into a physical entity in lower densities, even though he doesn't do this often. In the growth of that density, it is preferred to keep your energy together, unlike 5th density (like Treb) breaks his consciousness into several smaller parts to communicate with many others at once.

Personally, I'd say with strong belief that not only can angels 'become human' for awhile, many of them are what you would consider to be 'human'.

I operate under the belief that there are a few varieties of 'aliens', 'species', or even 'angels' that live here on the planet with us. You may not see them perhaps because our mind has us perceive things in a way that is comfortable to us (and so human in form), or perhaps more likely they're really not so different from us in appearance.

I would even go so far as to say that I'm not so sure that humans aren't already a physical incarnation of angels, if not the genuine full form of angels with great waiting untapped potential. Either way: My answer to this question would be a resounding 'Yes', and possibly even a 'there is more to this story...'

in truth I tell you we are all spirit energy and awareness at the very core of our being. even if we use different body. when one solve is puzzle of duality he will start to see is reflection on is water, once he is born of water he will get to know the spirit that he is. when the water and spirit become one the true state of peace is acquire the last door open with out fear he can go back to the kingdom of light. Do not be surprise at my saying I am the way the truth and the life.

(11 Apr '13, 18:20) white tiger

I concur, we are all energy at our most base form.

This is why I believe that both aliens and/or angels are more than capable of appearing exactly as we do. Furthermore I believe we have perception filters that would make them appear in an 'acceptable' form for our psyche even if they didn't look exactly as we do.


As for your last quote, I don't believe Jesus ever said that, or if he did it was massively mistranslated and/or misinterpreted. My view of Jesus is a stark contrast to most.

(11 Apr '13, 19:25) Snow

I don't think Jesus ever would have said anything to the effect of "I'm the only way to get to heaven", nor "Your souls need saving from anything." My Jesus tried to teach the opposite, that our souls are our own and need no salvation from any man, especially not the church. I believe the church strongly didn't appreciate someone telling people they were selling salvation cards for souls we'd never lost, and that's why they killed him. History is written by the victors, and the rest is history.

(11 Apr '13, 19:31) Snow

yes Snow i very much like your answer ... my view is that "angels, aliens, species" are the etheric part of humans that we may often perceive as being separate from ourselves

angels are angels
not a human being
their design in creation
is that of spirit

humans though likewise of
spirit were designed to
also have material form
consciousness and free will

According to Islam yes, here are a couple of accounts related from teachings of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him:

'Umar ibn al-Khattab said:

As we sat one day with the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), a man in pure white clothing and jet black hair came to us, without a trace of travelling upon him, though none of us knew him.

He sat down before the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) bracing his knees against his, resting his hands on his legs, and said: "Muhammad, tell me about Islam." The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: "Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and to perform the prayer, give zakat, fast in Ramadan, and perform the pilgrimage to the House if you can find a way."

He said: "You have spoken the truth," and we were surprised that he should ask and then confirm the answer. Then he said: "Tell me about true faith (iman)," and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: "It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His inspired Books, His messengers, the Last Day, and in destiny, its good and evil."

"You have spoken the truth," he said, "Now tell me about the perfection of faith (ihsan)," and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: "It is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you see Him not, He nevertheless sees you."

He said: "Now tell me about the Hour." The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) answered: "The one who is asked about it does knows no more than the questioner."

He said: "Then tell me about its signs." The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace answered: "That a slave girl shall give birth to her mistress, and that you see barefoot, naked, destitute shepherds vying to build tall buildings."

Then the visitor left. I waited a long while, and the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to me, "Do you know, 'Umar, who was the questioner?" and I replied, "Allah and His messenger know best." He said,

"It was Gabriel, who came to you to teach you your religion"

Another one is the story (i will summarize) of the three tested men of bani Israel, whom Allah has tested with illness and then He made them rich and healthy. Then Allah sent an angel to them in the form of a poor man to see how they will be. The angel asked them to help him, two of the men refused to help him and turned down his request while the third man agreed to him, and on that account he(the angel) told him that he was an angel whom Allah sent to test them.

Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.

Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.

Enoch was a patriarch taken to Heaven by two angels on God's orders. He was then transformed into Metatron, a great angel having 365,000 eyes and 36 pairs of wings, and appointed to be the scribe of Heaven. A patriarch of the seventh generation from Adam, Enoch lived 365 years on Earth before translating to Heaven. (Genesis 5:18-24)

The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.

Hebrews 13:2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

does a human drive a car a boot a plane a vessel?

does a spirit drive a mortal a angel or anny vessel it wants?

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

what is the image of god? spirit

and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

so according to those scripture man has a spirit made in the image of god. angel also have a spirit and can come also has men. is the apperance or the vessel so important? or is the spirit more important?

no matter how you dress you are still what you are. if you have rank in the army you are still a soldier. do you need to compare the left with the right?
