An Angel?

Standard
English: Angel of the Revelation

I looked at a picture that had been posted on AOL which purportedly showed an angel in the womb of a mother-to-be. The ultrasonic portrait of the foetus was in the foreground but there appeared to be a face in the background looking onto the baby. Well that was the claim. It was suggested that the image was that of an angel who was watching over the unborn infant. Now angels are Gods messengers, that’s what the name means, but why one should appear so tiny and only as a head is anyone’s guess. Angels, it is claimed, can manifest themselves as living beings, humans, but they are far from human. Accounts of angels appearing in the flesh are recorded in The Bible, the most remembered account being that experienced by a young virgin called Mary who was informed of her forthcoming pregnancy and the birth of Jesus Christ. This was the angel Gabriel who had also informed Elizabeth of her pregnancy after years of being barren. She bore a son called John who became known as John the Baptist. Many other accounts of angels are found in the pages of Scripture. The picture in the womb probably bore an accidental  similarity to a face which prompted the angel claim. People read so many things into what they see with their eyes. When pictures from the Martian exploration satellites were processed some of them appeared to show faces in the rock formations but they are obviously accidental comparisons caused by the angle of the light shining upon them coupled with the shapes of the rock formations themselves. It has even been suggested that some of the formations strongly resemble constructed buildings. Famous faces such as that of Elvis Presley have been seen in such photographs according to some views. Angels do not hide from us but they are normally invisible and only manifest themselves when instructed by God to do so. People have entertained angels without realising it on occasion. Angels have no need to hide away in pictures and photographs do tell lies now and then.
