There is no doubt that every reference to angels in Scripture is in the masculine gender. The Greek word for "angel" in the New Testament, angelos, is in the masculine form. In fact, a feminine for...
Four Angels Named in Scripture: 1. Lucifer (Isa. 14: 12; Ezek. 28: 11- 17) 2. Michael (Dan. 10: 13, 21; 12: 1; Jude 1: 9; Rev. 12: 7) 3. Gabriel (Dan. 8: 16; 9: 21; Lk. 1: 19, 26) 4. Abaddon or Apollyon (Rev. 9: 11) Throughout Scripture angels are spoken of as men. No female angels are on record. It is logical to say then that the female was created specifically to keep the human race in existence; and that all angels were created males, inasmuch as their kind exists without reproduction. Angels were created innumerable to start with (Heb. 12:22), whereas humanity began with one pair, Adam and Eve, who were commanded to reproduce and make multitudes. That angels have tangible spirit bodies, appear as men, and perform acts surpassing those of the human male is clear from many passages. See Heb. 13:2. Eight Facts about Angels: 1. The reality of personal angels (Job 1: 6; 2: 1; 4: 18; 38: 4- 7) 2. They regularly worship God (Job 1: 6; 2: 1) 3. Two classes of angels-- good and bad (Job 1: 16- 19; 2: 1- 8; 4: 18) 4. Some had a fall, like man (Job 4: 18) 5. They were created before man and the earth (Job 38: 4- 7) 6. They are called sons of God (Job 1: 6; 2: 1; 38: 4- 7) 7. They reside in heaven (Job 1: 6; 2: 1) 8. They are inferior to God (Job 1: 6; 2: 1; 38: 4- 7) Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels (Dan. 10:13, 21; 12:1; Jude 1:9). Angels fight by physical contact in the same way that people do. They are capable of operation in the material and earthly realm. After all, heaven and other planets are of material substance like the earth. Angels have done and can do all things that men can do, plus some things people cannot do before becoming resurrected, immortalized, and being given glorified bodies like Christ who can appear and disappear, going through material substance (note, Jn. 21:14). Angels are capable of being captured and confined by chains and prisons like people (Dan. 10:13- 21 2Pet. 2:4; Jude 1:6- 7 Rev. 9:11, 14; 20:1- 10). Here one army of angels is going to defeat and cast down another army of angels to the earth and confine them there (Rev. 12:7- 12). All fallen ones will be confined to hell forever (Mt. 24:41 Rev. 20:10).
Malakh in Arabic is Maalaakho in Syriac which means an angel. In the vision of Zachariah in Zech.5: 5-11 the person talking to Zacharia is a malak / maalaakho / angel. The lady in the box is personification of wickedness and the two winged women are disguised demons of Satan taking wickedness to be installed in the temple of Satan to be worshiped by those who do not accept Jesus Christ as Savior.
