Seeing angels in a dream is very common. The meaning and symbolism of the dream depend on the angels’ actions. There are many incidents in scripture of angels appearing in dreams to communicate God’s Will. In other cases, they appeared physically taking human form and not in their full glory.
Angels are significant in a believer’s life as they serve as ministering spirits to convey God’s Will to us. To lead, warn us and even save us from impending dangers we may never be aware of.
