There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people--everyone whose name is found written in the book--will be delivered. And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. The name Michael means 'Who is like God?

Michael appears to have a special role in guarding the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. In Jewish tradition, Michael is the author of Psalm 85, which is a sad poem about the suffering of the nation of Israel. He has also been associated with the 'man' who spoke to Joshua at the battle of Jericho 8.

Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies? Joshua In his role as chief warrior angel, it could well be Michael's voice that announces the return of Jesus to earth 9. He is often depicted wearing medieval armour, ready for battle - very appropriate for his warrior role! In some Christian traditions, Michael is said to have appeared to Mary Jesus' mother to tell her that she would die soon and that he carried her deceased body into heaven.

Some Catholics believe that Mary didn't die but that she was taken straight to heaven, by Michael or by Jesus. In Islam, Michael is known as Mikail and the Koran says that he sheds tears over the sins of the faithful and these tears become the angels known as the Cherubim. The name Gabriel means 'God's Hero' and he is God's special messenger angel.
On several occasions in the Bible he is given the job of coming to earth to give important announcements and tell of special events Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision: Daniel Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. I am an old man and my wife is well along in years. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news.
The virgin's name was Mary. The Lord is with you. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke So it was Gabriel who had the amazing job of telling Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus, the king of the universe!

It's also highly likely that it was Gabriel who spoke to Joseph and told him that Mary would have a special baby called Jesus Nowhere in the Bible is Gabriel called an archangel, although in Jewish folklore he is one of the seven archangels. In Daniel it says that Gabriel arrives in 'swift flight', but it doesn't mention wings! Swift flight could just mean quickly! Another important rank of angels are Archangels. Archangels The term or prefix 'arch' is Greek for ruling or Chief. Revelation But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!
Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision: Daniel 8 Once when Zechariah's division was on duty and he was serving as priest before God, 9 he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense. What Are Angels? What Do Angels Look Like? Jacob's firstborn son Reuben, lost his birthright due to his taking his father's concubine to the 11th born Joseph.
So to cut a long story short, every major patriarch in the bible had a firstborn son who lost his birthright to a later born son who was more deserving except in the case of Abel and Seth. So what does all of this mean in the greatest fulfilment?? Well, did God not say: Israel is my son, my firstborn Exodus ? But Israel was not originally the firstborn of Isaac whose father was Abraham whose father was Israel was Jacob who was the second born. But Israel became the firstborn of Isaac and of God due to his spirituality. Likewise did his prophet not say.
But of course Ephraim was not the firstborn of Israel or the firstborn of Joseph. Manasseh was the firstborn of Joseph. So the question is: Did this thing that happened with all of the patriarchs in the old testament happen also with the great Patriarch himself, Jehovah?? Was Michael the firstborn originally or did he earn this right as a result of his spirituality, and did he replace the angel that was truly born first?
After all he with his 12 apostles prefigure Jacob with his 12 sons.
And Jacob's name means 'surplanter'. Consider the following two groups of scriptures, one group set before Jesus died and the other after:. Also, there was a voice from the heavens that said: This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved Matthew 3. Matthew Mark 9. Nowhere in the gospels or before did the true God say of Jesus or of Michael: You are my firstborn son, the beloved, I have approved you But after the resurrection we read:. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become the one who is first in all things Colossians 1.
But then we must realise one thing. Satan committed suicide inside Judas on the same day that Michael was sacrificed in Jesus So presumably God resurrected Jesus before he resurrected Satan, thereby reversing their physical birth orders as well as transferring the firstborn rights. Every precious stone was your covering, ruby, topaz and jasper; chrysolite, onyx and jade; sapphire, turquoise and emerald; and of gold was the workmanship of your settings and your sockets in you. In the day of your being created they were made ready.

Accused killer Gabrielle Woutersz 'saw the devil' when she looked in the mirror
In the midst of fiery stones you walked about. Well, Adam was God's own son, a son created by God alone, the most important addition to the family. Satan had the top job of looking after him because this job was the right of the firstborn angel, who was the head of the first Holy Spirit, through whom everything would have been done according to the Modus operandi of God, who gives his firstborn covenanted rights to be his CEO.
Michael, ONE [ dx'a, means 'one'.

It can also mean 'first' but only with reference to the first day of the month according to Gesenius] of the foremost princes [he had not received the firstborn right at that time] , came to help me; and I, for my part, remained there beside the kings of Persia Daniel One of the foremost princes? But firstborn angel no.
Firstborn angel with everlasting life - yes. So archangel? Yes, for Jude describes him as such Jude 1 NWT. This was because Michael was the archangel the head angel, the head of the 2nd Holy Spirit at the time of his dispute with Satan over Moses. Whereas he was a God at the time of Jude writing his letter. But he was not the firstborn angel at the time of his dispute with Satan over Moses. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become [ gi,nomai ] the one who is first in all things Colossians 1 - NWT.
These two correct translations of gi,nomai show that Jesus became the firstborn angel of God at his resurrection from the dead. We must harmonise this with proverbs:. The beginning of his way, and the earliest of his achievements relates to the creation of a loyal character not to creation itself it would appear, hence we read:. Had Michael been the firstborn then he would not have "come to be" the one he was specially fond of, he would have always been that one. There is no position superior to God's firstborn angel other than that of a God like Jehovah.
So Jesus earned this position by his sacrifice. This is the same statement as: Israel is my firstborn.
