The Bible says that man was created in the "image of God" (Genesis 1:26-27). Angels, however, are considered a different kind of being than humans, and their image can be different from ours.

In the Bible, there are descriptions of angels in various forms. For example, the prophet Isaiah wrote that when he saw the glory of God, he saw angels who appeared to him in "forms like coals of fire" (Isaiah 6:1-2). In other accounts, angels are described as having wings.

The diversity of angelic forms may indicate that as spiritual beings, they are not bound by physical constraints and can appear in a variety of forms. They can appear in a variety of ways to carry out and serve God's will, and their forms can be consistent with their tasks and roles.

Because religion and faith encompass many aspects of belief, mysticism, and symbolism, the understanding of angelic beings and images can vary depending on religious tradition, interpretation, and individual beliefs. This diversity is a reminder to respect the richness of religious experience and understanding, and to recognize that different interpretations can form rich perspectives.
