The angel of the LORD replied, "Even though you detain me, I will not eat any of your food. But if you prepare a burnt offering, offer it to the LORD." (Manoah did not realize that it was the angel of the LORD.)
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
22 But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, she turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat her to get her back on the road.
With the tip of the staff that was in his hand, the angel of the LORD touched the meat and the unleavened bread. Fire flared from the rock, consuming the meat and the bread.
1 Kings 19:5
Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, "Get up and eat."
1 When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not contend with [a] man forever, for he is mortal [b] ; his days will be a hundred and twenty years."
4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
Linda wrote:Interesting that you think of angels and demons as spirits. Reading the Bible, the descriptions of appearances of angels seem to clearly suggest that angels are physical beings as we are - they can even be mistaken for human beings - I remember a quote about being kind to strangers for you may be entertaining angels unaware.
As the inhabitants of hell are merely former angels, it would be logical to suppose that they are also physically identical to angels.
