The Archangel; Michael: theunfetteredpreacher.com

Archangels, are the leaders of the angels. Michael, is one of the most important angels (Daniel 10:13 Expanded Bible) Michael, the angel ruling over your people [your prince]. (Daniel 10:21 Expanded Bible.) Michael, the great prince who ·protects, [stands by] your people. (Daniel 12:1 Expanded Bible)

There are only two verses in the Bible that mention Archangels, by name.

1 Thessalonians 4:16

“For the Lord, himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:”

Jude 1:9

“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

Michael the Archangel is the chief warrior Angel of the Lord.

The Future: Revelation 12:7-9

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

The Past: 2 Kings 6:15-17

“And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, a host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”

Today: Ephesians 6:10-12

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The Lord allows Satan to test us, try us, prove us.

Job 1:12

“And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.”

Job 2:6

“And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand, but save his life.”

Daniel is the only Bible character, that had dealings with two different Archangels, Micheal and Gabriel. Micheal is the Lord’s warrior.

Micheal, comes into Daniels life, because of his prayer.

Daniel

10:2-5

“In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel; Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:”

7-9

“And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.”

11-13

“And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.”

Spiritual Warfare is real, and an ever-present part of our Christian life. We must learn to trust and pray until we touch the Hem of his Garment.

as many as touched him were made whole.‘ (Mark 6:56c)

I saw the Lord: theunfetteredpreacher

“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”

The angels cried Holy, the angels cried Holy, the angels cried Holy is the Lord. (Isaiah 6:1,3)

This is one of my favorite songs to sing and play. Isaiah has the only two verses that mention seraphim in the Bible. While the Cherubims had the job to protect the Tree of Life. (Jesus) The seraphim job is to reign praise and worship on to the Lord. (Yahway)

They also are the ones who reasure us of our salvation. The Alter with the blood of Jesus, and the Fire of the Holy Spirit, to assure us of our worth to the Lord. He Asks Who will Go. Like Isaiah and Samuel, our answer should be ‘Here I am Lord, send me.’ (Isaiah 6:4-7)

While the cherubs had four wings, the Seraphim’s have 6. Two, to cover their face, (They cannot even look upon God), Two, to cover their feet, and bodies. Two for flying. (Isaiah 6:2)

Revelation 4:5-11

“And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne, there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

Cherub and Seraphim are closely related. I do not believe all had four or six wings or four faces. Like humans, they are all individuals. with specific duties and responsibilities. All in the service of the Lord or God.

6 Requirements for Kingdom Christians: by Lee Allen Howard

https://wp.me/p9jVwt-cg

A wonderful basic teaching for those who love the Lord

The First Angels: theunfetteredpreacher.com

In Luke 10:18-20Jesus had sent out 70, 2 by 2, to preach the Kingdom of God. We find them returning, with Joy, that the sick were healed and devils were subject to them.

In verse 18, we find Jesus saying.

“I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Angels appear to be the first of God’s Creation, to have Freewill. Most chose God, a third joined satan and rebelled. (Revelation 12:4)

Who was this satan? We find he was the highest of the Angels, possibly the Praise and Worship leader. (Revelation 4:8, Isaiah 6:3), ((leading the seraphim)).

In Ezekiel 28:14, he is called ‘The anointed Cherub. He was adorned with very precious jewels, (Ezekiel 28:13), he was full of wisdom, perfect in beauty, (Ezekial 28:12b). Why then did he fall?

Ezekiel 28: 15. “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from. the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”

In Isaiah 14:12-15 We find he is full of Pride, he wanted and thought he was God, he was sent to earth, from heaven, even though he was free to come before God. (Job)

His mission on earth?

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

The mission of Satan. To Kill, Steal and Destroy. He uses the three Temptations.

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

He used the three temptations on Eve and Adam.

Genesis 3: 4.

“the woman saw that the tree was good for food,” lust of the Flesh

“pleasant to the eyes,” lust of the eyes

desired to make one wise,” pride of life

Satan, was successful in causing man to fall. He actually killed them, Spiritually. We see the same temptations less successfully used on Jesus.

Luke 4:2-14

“command this stone that it be made bread.” lust of the flesh. Jesus’s answer: “It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”

“shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world” lust of the eye. Jesus answered: “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

“If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:” pride of life. Jesus said: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season. And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.”

Jesus was tempted externally, we can be also, yet most of our temptations come from within.

James 1:12-15

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

When David saw Bathsheba, it was lust, his lust that was enticing him, he was drawn away from Righteousness, causing him to sin, and on to greater sin. If he had not repented, his Spiritual life would have been lost.

I am convinced that if Adam had manned up, he would have been forgiven and remained in the Garden.

We see a lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, and the pride of life, throughout he Bible. We need to follow David’s example, and confess and repent. Enter into the holy of holies, to find grace and mercy in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)
