The Truth about Michael and Gabriel and All The Archangels

I will tell you truth, Michael the archangel would not rebel against The Lord. Now not because he has no free will or he is not capable of rebellion, but for the fact that he has been so rooted in righteousness for so long this has become who he is… perfect! Michael was the ONLY archangel who helped The Lord against the prince of the kingdom of Persia (Satan) in Daniel chapter 10 (10:13). Where was Gabriel? Where were the other five archangels? Michaels character shows strong courage and obedience when he contended with Satan over the body of Moses in Jude 1 (1:9). Michael disputed with Satan without bringing against Satan a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Michael did not get personal, he kept it professional and let Satan understand that Satan’s fight was with The Lord. The Lord honors Michael in Daniel 10:21, But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and [there is] none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince. The Lord ONLY honors Michael, NOT Gabriel or any of the other five archangels, (The Lord said “there is” NONE”, but Michael”). In Daniel 12:1 you see Michael standing up for all the Lords children (kids) and he is honored as a great prince. Again where is Gabriel? Then in Revelation 12 (12:7-8) you see Michael and his angels stand up and fight Satan and Satan’s angels (The War in Heaven). Now again where is Gabriel? Gabriel is an archangel, not an angel (Rev 12:7 says Michaels angels, not archangels). Should Gabriel not be there to help fight the war in Heaven? Where are the other five archangels? Why are they not mentioned in The War in Heaven? The Lord trusted Michael to command his OWN angels, now that is honor (The Lord says “I will honor those who honor me”). Michael has fought the fight of patience and endured unto the end. Where in the scriptures do you see Michael rebelling against The Lord? There is nowhere recorded in the scriptures anywhere or anytime that Michael rebels against The Lord. This movie is made to discredit and dishonor the great name of the ONLY archangel and chief prince who honored and glorified The Lord unto the end. You can clearly see The Lord honor Michael both in the OT and the NT, Here are five references:

Dan 10:13 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.

Dan 10:21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holder with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Jud 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.

Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.

NOW Gabriel has rebelled against The Lord and dishonored The Lords name. When you see Gabriel in Daniel 8 and 9, (8:16, 9:21) he shows respect unto Daniel and honors The Lord (Read: Dan 8:15 thru Dan 8:19 and Dan 9:21 thru Dan 9:23). Then you see Gabriel dishonor The Lord later in Luke 1 (1:20) getting easily provoked to anger and being a striker, striking Zacharias dumb and not able to speak. Now Gabriel did this to a weak man for asking a question (Read: Luk 1:11 thru Luk 1:22). Not only did Gabriel get easily provoked to anger, he also glorified himself (Luke 1:19, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God). Who cares who you are, deliver the message that The Lord sent you to speak. That is all Gabriel job was to do was deliver the message. Gabriel was not to glorify himself, not to get easily provoked to anger, and not get personal and strike Zacharias dumb. You clearly see in Dan 8:16 where The Lord introduced Gabriel and speaks his name, The Lord testified of Gabriel. In Luke 1:19 Gabriel spoke of himself. Gabriel’s name was not important, only the message The Lord sent was. What is it to Gabriel whether Zacharias listens and obeys? Just deliver the message and let the man decide whether to obey or not. Let The Lord punish Zacharias if it was needed. I know for a fact The Lord DID NOT command Gabriel to strike Zacharias. Now see Joshua 5:13-15 where Joshua meets Michael and asks who he is, Michael answered “as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come”. You clearly see Michael honor The Lord and staying neutral only stating he is there as The Lord sent him, focusing on the purpose of the assignment and not get personal. Again in Jude 1:9 you see Michael contend with Satan over the body of Moses, only to honor the Lord and say “The Lord rebukes thee”, thus keeping it between The Lord and Satan and not get personal or easily provoked to anger or be a striker. Michael was patient and self controlled with Satan and I am sure that was extremely difficult to do considering who he was dealing with. That is how I know for a fact The Lord did not command Gabriel to strike Zacharias. Gabriel could have been more patient and self controlled. You can clearly see in the scriptures how Michael and Gabriel handle similar assignments for The Lord. They both handle them extremely differently and Michael honors The Lord, where Gabriel dishonors The Lord. Michael handles every assignment perfectly with patience and self control and glorifies The Lord. Gabriel could have handled assignments more patiently and more self control and not get personal, to glorify The Lord perfectly. Remember both Michael and Gabriel have a free will to choose and act, just like all the other angels and archangels have. We clearly see that when one third of the angels are thrown out of Heaven for choosing to rebel. They followed Satan willfully, none of them were forced or commanded or ordered to rebel. Rebellion is a choice. Obedience is a choice. To submit is a choice. The Lord does not force anyone to love, obey and submit to Him. Michael was sent on assignments and chose how to perform each assignment perfectly to glorify The Lord. Gabriel was sent on assignments and also chose how to perform each assignment, of which he could have performed some of them with perfection, but some you clearly see he did not, thus bringing dishonor to The Lord. If you truly study both Michael and Gabriel you will clearly see why The Lord honors Michael ONLY, both in the OT and NT, and you do not see or hear much about Gabriel and definitely any of the other five archangels (Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Zerachiel and Remiel).
Lets test Gabriels Spirit: according to Scriptures:
A.) Test (Try) all Spirits: (1 John 4:1) B.) Love is NOT EASILY provoked: (1 Cor 13:4) C.) Works of Evil and the Flesh: (Gal 5:19) D.) The Spirit of The Lord: (Gal 5:22)(patience and self-control).

KEY scripture: Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

So now let’s test Gabriel spirit out to see whether he was led by The Lord or by his own self righteousness or Satan. Look at the conversations between Gabriel and Daniel then study the conversation between Gabriel and Zacharias and see if he could had been more patient and self controlled, show more mercy.

Read for yourselves: Dan 8:15 thru Dan 8:19 Then another conversation with Daniel: Dan 9:21 thru Dan 9:23 Now compare and read the conversation with Zacharias: Luk 1:11 thru Luk 1:22

Now I will leave you with another food for thought. It is widely known that Gabriel was the archangel who came down from Heaven and gave the Muslim prophet Mohammed the Quran. (Quote from Wikipedia: At some point Muhammad adopted the practice of meditating alone for several weeks every year in a cave on Mount Hira near Mecca. Islamic tradition holds that during one of his visits to Mount Hira, the angel Gabriel appeared to him in the year 610). Now if this is true (and I strongly believe it did happen) why would Gabriel do this? according to scriptures:

KEY scripture: Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

You can clearly see the other five archangels do similar acts of disobedience to The Lord:

Raphiel: can be seen in the book of Tobit, (Tobit 12 :15-16)
Allowing Tobias to bow down to him and not commanding Tobias to his feet as did the angel in the Book of Revelations did when John bow down and was told twice to stand and worship The Lord.

Uriel: can be seen in the book of 2 Esdras, (2 Esdras chapter 4-15)
You clearly see Uriel confusing Esdras, asking questions as The Lord did with Job in the book of Job.

Raguel : can be seen in the book of Enoch and the books of Magic (AKA: Raguil, Rasuil, Rufael, Suryan, Akrasiel)(AKA: Spectre in the books of Magic by Neil Gaiman, DC Comic Universe). Also mentioned in Babylonian and Sumerian Cultures (AKA: Rag in Babylon, Rig in Sumeria). Can also be known as AKA: Jegudiel also Jhudiel or Jehudiel.

Zerachiel: can be seen in Judaism and Islam (AKA: Selaphiel or Saint Sealtiel, Selatiel, Saraquiel Suriel, Suriyel (in some Dead Sea Scrolls translations), Esdreel, Sahariel, Juriel, Seriel, Sauriel, Surya, Saraqael, Sarakiel, Jariel, Sourial, Suruel, Surufel and Sourial

Remiel: can be seen in the book of Enoch and the book 2 Baruch, also mentioned in Judiasm and Islam. (AKA: Barachiel, Barbiel, Barchiel, Barkiel, and Baraqiel)

The seven archangels:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Zerachiel and Remiel

The Book of Enoch:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Remiel and Saraqael

In the late 5th to early 6th century, Pseudo-Dionysius gives them as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Chamuel, Jophiel, and Zadkiel.

The earliest Christian mention is by Pope Saint Gregory I who lists them as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel (or Anael), Simiel (or Samael), Oriphiel and Zachariel.

The Eastern Orthodoxy tradition venerates Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Selaphiel, Jegudiel, and Barachiel.

Another Catholic variation lists them corresponding to the days of the week as: St Michael (Sunday), St Gabriel (Monday), St Raphael (Tuesday), St Uriel (Wednesday), St Sealtiel (Thursday), St Jegudiel, (Friday), and St Barachiel (Saturday).

In the Coptic Orthodox tradition the seven archangels are named as Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Suriel, Zadakiel, Sarathiel and Aniel.

It is important to note that the Roman Catholic Church only recognizes 3 archangels: Gabriel, Michael and Raphael
