I believe there are female angels too.
Do you think female angels exist?
I don't know why angels would need reproductive organs.
I agree, I do not see a need for male or female angels, there I believe are just angels. Now when angles manifest to people like they have in the bible I think they can take on the form of a man or a woman.
What makes you believe there female angels?
I am in agreement with the others. I have no scriptural evidence, but I believe angels are gender neutral (meaning there are no male angels, either). If the resurrected body is not gender specific, then perhaps this is why no one recognized Jesus. I've often wondered why people could not recognize Jesus until they looked 'his' eyes, or saw 'his' wrists. If his resurrected body was gender neutral, he would look the same, yet different. Pure speculation on my part, of course.
Well, a lot of Biblical angels are drawn as longhaired males with blonde long hair and pale skin, and some Biblical angels are drawn as females, but the female angels are not the ones with the names mentioned in the Bible.
Angels can take on different forms according to how the Lord sends them to do his work. They are neither male or female and are not given in marriage. We also will be like them, not that we will display no sex of what we were on earth, for we shall look similar as we were in this life, and recognizable to others whom we knew here. We will be married to the Lord and as in this physical life we become one in body to the one we are married to, in the same way we are made one in Jesus being joined to Him by His Spirit which makes us one in him.
Mar 12:25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
Luk 20:34, And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage,
Luk 20:35, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage,
Luk 20:36, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
1Co 6:16, Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, "The two will become one flesh."
1Co 6:17, But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
Also, since demons are fallen angels, how come demons can have gender then? Most demons are male, but I know 2 female demons, and the 2 female demons are Lilith and Jezebel. And then there are the Succubi, which are all female demons.
Yes lol, their names in scripture suggest male. But they are gender neutral as all are saying.
It wouldn't make sense either. As then God would need to prepare for another fallout and send many to hell to join the devil. I guess God can do whatever He wants. So lets not put Him in a box. The bottom line though is as you noted, their are no female angel names mentioned in scripture.
Right. This is another area I've often wondered about. We'll apparently be able to recognize our children, parents, relatives, etc., but we will no longer be married. Again, pure speculation, but if our resurrected bodies have no gender, it would make sense that we would no longer be married.
We will be married to the Lord, and since we are one body in Christ we will married to one another by His Glory which makes us all one!
So we will have no soul body or gender at all? Like we'll we be completely just miraculous air?
Will there be romantic feelings in Heaven?
You will be the same "gender" wou were in life. And will appear "as you think you should".
Angels do not have a physical gender, but they do have masculine or feminine personalities.
A person who encountered St. Michael described him as the most "masculine being he could imagine".
I personally have not read of any occasion where angels were portraying themselves as female, but that does not mean that they do not. Devils regularly portray themselves as female, Astoroth as Astarte being a good example.
Demons and devils, like angels, have no "real" gender, and can appear as either at will.
There is no sex in Heaven because spirits cannot procreate. No sex means no marriage, marriage there becoming pointless.
In Heaven, each persons devotion is to God, not to a spouse.
I see... But you mean no internal organs at all?
And what is a devil then? I thought Devil means Satan only, and the demons are only demons.
And in Heaven, will the spouse become just a friend and will no longer be a husband or wife?
No, you will not have "real" internal organs, though you can "eat", but will not need bathroom breaks.
The organization of Hell is very medieval, "devils" are the nobility (management) and demons are the peasants (labor).
There are tens of thousands of devils, and billions of demons.
Your spouse will be your friend. Hopefully he was a friend in life also.
But my spouse will not be my spouse in Heaven anymore? Just a friend?
And I see. Wow, big number then... And I heard about like 72 Ars Goetia demons (or are they devils?), and they each have legions of a lot of demons. One of them had a legion of 26.000 demons... I think it's the Ilosovic Stayne demon who has that big legion... That devil though... -.-"
Interesting Gloming. The bible says Jesus ate after his resurrection, but I didn't read anything about the bathroom breaks. Just curious if these two remarks are scriptural or speculation?
Scriptural and other sources. I tend to avoid speculation.
NO! There is no mention of female angels in the Scriptures. Zero, None, Nada!
Maybe, just maybe if you spent as much time reading the Bible as you do reading opinions on the internet you would know the answers to some of your questions.
Not tiring to be mean spirited here, just stating the obvious.
