Angels (Hebrew - mal'ak)
The Hebrew word for angel is mal'ak, which means to dispatch as a deputy; messenger; ambassador.
An angel can manifest himself in all his God given glory or he can appear as a mere mortal (or not at all) depending on what he is sent to do. It is evident that angels can and do appear in the form of a man as stated in Hebrews 13:2 which says: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Glory of God (Hebrew - shekinah)
In the beginning, before Adam and Eve sinned, they were clothed in the (shekinah) Glory of God; they were literally covered with a glow which was the Glory of God. This glow was why they did not perceive that they were naked. God has this glow (Psalms 104:2), and being created in his image (and sinless), so did Adam and Eve, as seen in Genesis 2:25 ...And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Then, when they transgressed the commandment of the Lord, that glory departed and they perceived that they were naked. No more glow; no more clothing. From then on, the majority of mankind has been ashamed of their nakedness. Also, they could no longer endure the presence of God, since sin cannot exist in the presence of God; it is terminally fatal. Since then, God has had to shield man from his glory with a cloud to prevent man from being "burned to a crisp". Look at Exodus 24:16 which says ...And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud...
The "Halo", as we know it today, regardless of whether it is associated with angels or as seen in Catholic "art", etc. is another example of how religion has reduced the magnificent Shekinah Glory of God to a mere wisp of a ring.
