How is God Speaking?

Angels in Daniel’s Life

Although this week is called “Passion Week” I am still continuing the messages about “Angels”  . By the time we get to “Resurrection” Sunday you see how the angels were at the tomb where Jesus’ body was laid.

Names of angels-  

There are only three names listed in the Christian Bible – Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer (light bearer) became Satan who has several names – the devil (James 4:7), adversary/enemy (1 Peter 5:8), prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4).

Michael, the Warrior angel –

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia (Daniel 10:13). One of the chief princes came to Daniel’s aid. 

Dispute between Michael and Satan. 

Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you (Jude, verse 9). 

Why did Michael and Satan have a dispute over Moses’ body? The Lord buried Moses’ body. And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day. (Deuteronomy 34:6). God buried Moses so the people would not worship him as a god.

Gabriel – Angel who spoke to some people.

When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it; and behold, standing before me was one who looked like a man. And I heard the voice of a man between the banks of Ulai, and he called out and said, Gabriel, give this man an understanding of the vision.

So, he came near to where I was standing, and when he came I was frightened and fell on my face; but he said to me, Son of man, understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end (Daniel 8:15-16).

Now while I was speaking and praying and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God on behalf of the holy mountain of my God, while I was still speaking in prayer, then the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision previously, came to me in my extreme weariness about the time of the evening offering.

He gave me instruction and talked with me and said, O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you insight with understanding (Daniel 10:20-21).


To be continued - Gabriel the angel spoke to Zacharias and Mary
