The Angel With Red Wings


My name is Rivkah and I have had a few visions of angels, or more specifically one angel- the angel with red wings. I really want to know who he is.

I grew up in an atheist household despite my name (a relic of my parents' culture) and religion was strongly discouraged, but I always felt an absolute certainty that there was a G-d. When I was 13, I suddenly felt a pull toward Judaism, and the face of a benevolently smiling man appeared in my mind for no reason I could fathom. I listened to my intuition and looked up the religion, and found myself on a site with the Shema Yisrael, a prayer. I read through it even though it was in Hebrew and felt overwhelmed with joy. I even started to cry, and I simply couldn't figure out why, other than the fact that it had to be the truth. I had found the religion I had been searching for since I was a child.

Another time, I was feeling very upset, under pressure about exams, lonely and utterly hopeless. Desolate, you could say. That night, I lay down and began to cry, and then I somehow wasn't in my room, wasn't lying in bed, and was standing with the benevolent man. He was an angel.

He had bright scarlet wings and was smiling so kindly, so warmly, it made me feel whole somehow, and there was a crowd of snowy white winged angels behind me. They were all smiling too, but none of them had that affect on me. He had his arm around me and I could feel the warmth of my skin on mine- they were all quite tall, I felt like a child standing next to an adult, and in the same way I felt he would look after me. Take care of me. His other arm was extended to show me something but I didn't bother to look, so enthralled was I by his face, his eyes, his smile, his beautiful long hair. He made me feel so... Warm.

I've had a few visions of him since, especially when I feel lost or sad. He comes and holds onto me, comforting, mostly in the night, or holds my hand. I've not heard him speak but often when I'm with him there's a sort of happy sound; I don't know how to describe it properly, a sort of whispering sound like someone singing quietly far away. I love him and I think he is my guardian angel but I would like to know who he is; I've never heard of an angel with red wings before.

Thank you for reading this.

Rivkah xx

I know this an old post. I experienced something last night. It wasn't a figure but more a star and that star had red wings around it then a blue light shined down from it and a sword fell from the star.

Well my dream is waaay different then the ones I've read. In my dream I was the angel itself and my wings were red and there were not like feathers. They were like red Crystals. I wish I knew what it meant

Maybe this isn't the place to say this, but I like to practice reading tarot, and I believe that it is completely in sync with my religious beliefs. Anyway, the red-winged angel is major figure in the tarot, specifically in Key 14: Temperance. The red-winged angel symbolizes internal balance and healing. The appearance of the red-winged angel often means that a greater spiritual force is entering a life to right what is wrong, restore what was lost, cool what was too hot, heat up what was too cold, and temper our lives for balanced, harmonious health.
I believe this interpretation of the red-winged angel could help with your spiritual journey, Rivka, and thank you for your story.

Many good comments here. Groups, "divisions" vibratory differences only separate the planes of Angels and man. Wings being washed of blood sounds about right to me. My experience, Gabriel came as an aura, during my crowning, I did not see "wings" but I "heard" the trumpet announcing the arrival. Red wings to me, are the messengers between the gods and angels, the chaotic ones that have the "dirty" jobs. The Angels that got "left behind" by choice of themselves, to help. That's why they keep to themselves most of the time, they got a bad reputation. If someone's going to donthe dirty work, let's make sure it's done clean, Angels remember and live in the fact that their life is eternal, that all life is eternal. So when the Angel of death swoops in to assist someone to their recycling, he knows that life is death is life. Blood stained my wings, I've paid my penance, I'm sorry. We all have to re learn ourselves constantly, even divinity. Have a blessed day!

When you are visited by an angelic being, to know for sure if the messenger is of God, ask them to shake your hand. If the messenger is heaven sent they will shake your hand and you will feel it. If it is a heaven sent spirit messenger it will ignore your question and deliver his message from heaven anyways being as it is against the heavenly order for a spirit to decieve you. If it is the devil appearing as an Angel when you reach out your hand he will reach out to shake your hand and you will feel nothing.

I just met the angel You described - the one with red wings in a dream. I met this angel after invoking God in this Dream. This angel descend from heaven and I was sure it was God himself. But the one specific fact in this vision doesn't fit with yours. My angel was a Woman. I started looking on internet information about it and just found your thread here. In art Red Wings symbolically represent Seraphim Angel - but in my Dream I was sure I'm face to face with God.

My son told me of a experience you might find interesting. I believe it might add a little more light to the subject. Their is a scripture Messiah speaking "In my Father's house are many mansions if it were not so I would have told you plainly. I go to prepare a place for you..." My son was worshipping and he was shown a place where there were red winged angels dancing and a women singing though he could not see her. It seemed to him like a very private worship service and he heard the words unbidden. In other words he was not invited. He said he didn't know how he got there. But the angels were diffently worshipping. I have wondered who these angels are.

I have to add, I read a comment about Angels have no wings, that is not true. There are different Angels with different types of wings in the Bible. They also have different names for their "group." You can research the Bible for these answers that is your BEST resource. Why? Because GOD created them.:) And GOD talks about them 203 times!

Hi Rivkah,
My name is Geena Lyon. I think you will find my experience with my red winged Angel interesting. My Angel is rather different looking than yours. Even though He stood behind me in my room I knew he was rather tall, but not as tall as yours, but over 6 foot. I could see from the side his wings which are red and narrow and rest high on his shoulders. His wings looked to me like they were lightly washed in blood. I don't see anything wrong with that because I believe it's a message. The reason being, before he came an eagle came and sat on my pillow and his wings also lightly washed with blood. Back to my Angel, I wanted to look at him and made it a point to see his face. I asked if I could see him and he said, I could. I turned around to look at him. He kept his eyes narrow and squinted at me, but I remember them being dark. I felt like he thought I wouldn't approve of his looks. He had thin lips and a little tiny smirk in them. His nose was narrow with a nice bump below the bridge. His hair was completely white and wavy reaching his shoulders. He wore silver that faded away. I drew a picture of him and it's on Etsy if you want to see it. My user name here is also my shop name. That's my third Angel visit from two different Angels. I don't know his name, I'm not sure that's too important but I think he is trying to tell us something, we just need to listen. Angel means messenger. PS Don't let anyone try to take away your experience by implying he might not be from God. Take care.

About two years ago I published a story on this site about a red wing and four angels... "Vision with Four Angels, Weeping and Covered by Wings" I have been waiting for someone else to have experienced the same type of experience that I did. I find this very interesting. You're visions seem to be really similar to mine. Now that I'm not the only one that I know of who has seen the same thing as me I really want to communicate with you and bobby. I am very curious to see what you have to say

thankyou for your comments (sorry, I was on an extended work placement abroad so couldn't reply before).
Michelle- what a lovely thing to happen, I'm glad you've found your religion, and that an archangel visited you- I didn't think I'd be important enough for one to see me so I figured it was just a lesser angel. I love how they come to help us, though, it makes you feel so valued:)
bobby- I'll contact you now.

Hi Rivhah,
Nice to know that you seen an angel. I felt a great angel and his name is Gabriel. I was in great trouble. He lifted me and left his name behind (Actually I am non-christian). Next day I also received a bible as gift. Pray very hard and do surrender to God. But demons do pretend to be good and show a lot of things. Just pray and God bless you!

Seek and you shall find.

Angels of God will glorify Him more than anything else.

While demons are self centered. They will never acknowledge the Creator.

We have our own perception of reality, so it is okay if you want to see them as creatures with wings, but also remember that demons do have wings to for they are angels before.

ZiShu- thanks so much for commenting- if you could ask your Guardian about colours that would be really nice of you ^.^ I would like to know more. Also, he doesn't exactly come regularly. I never know when he will visit me. So is there a way I could sort of call to him or something? (and I don't really have a favourite colour... But red is a nice one:P)

Knight of Jesus- erm... I don't know how to do astral projection. And my angel definitely had wings. I don't think he was a demon and I don't know how you would tell anyway... But thanks for your comment:)

Angels doesn't have or need wings for they are spirits. The wings are just our own perception on how angels should look like, and in return they would respond to our request, that is why we should examine every spirit if they are of God, because demons can project themselves to appear as an angel.

If you can do astral projection, you will know that you can also fly without the need for wings.

Actually Angels do have gender, mainly Guardian Angels and some ArchAngels. The gender is categorized by only physical looks only. This is according to my own Guardian.
I asked if he could turn into a female he responded "no"... There are many other things I can say to back this up, for one thing, Marriage in Heaven. Anyway...
Gabriel has black wings but he can also have white wings depending on how he represents himself.
I do know that all Angels have their own special color, and for Guardians, only humans can see their Angel's color. Is red your favorite color? I should ask my Angel more about colored wings...
But yes you can get this Angel to speak to you, ask this Angel if it comes from God, then before you sleep allow him to go into your dreams and you can speak to him there.

thankyou for replying:)
I've not heard of angels having different coloured wings before, and I didn't know they had different colours to represent other angels either- maybe that's the reason. I tried to ask him questions before, but I've never actually heard him speak at all- is there any way I could get him to talk to me, do you think?
thankyou =]

I don't know what why he has red wings, I know its sure has a message behind it

I read that some angels wear some colours to show in which group they belong to for example the angels who are in charge of the angel Michael or Gabriel and so on, try to ask him/her name (angels don't really have a gender) maybe you receive his name telepatic.
(sorry for my English if its wrong).
