Hi Gloria,

Many have asked this question. Because the Bible doesn't explain itself on the issue, any answer that seeks to specifically identify them would be conjecture to some extent. However, I might point out that there is no indication in Scripture that angels of either Satan or God can reproduce. Angels, as we normally use the word, are spirits and reproduction is a physical ability. While angels have taken on the appearance of humanity, I don't know of any place that gives them the functions of humanity. (The reason for my parenthetical "as we normally use the word" is that a few references to "angel" in the Bible are in relation to the root meaning of the word, which is "messenger.")
