Aunt C - i think i was wrong in my post about Revelations saying that angels had wings. After I typed it out I went and got my Bible to re-read the passage. It doesn't say they are angels - it says instead they are creatures.
Revelations Chapter 4:6b-11
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were convered with eyes in front and in back. (7) The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. (8)Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying:
"Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty
who was, and is, and is to come"
(9)Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits ont he throne and who lives for ever and ever, (10) the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
(11)"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to recieve glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,and by your will they were created
and have their being."
