Gabriel to Nazareth in Galilee to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of

the House of David.


The virgin's name was Mary. Gabriel told her that she had found favor with God, and that
she would conceive and bear a son whom she was to give the name of Jesus, which
means "Salvation." He also told Mary that her relative, Elizabeth, despite her old age, had
also conceived a son (John the Baptist). Gabriel functions as a messenger. He announces
the births of both John the Baptist and Jesus.

Angels and the Hierarchy of the


Heavenlies.

SERAPHIM. ARCHANGELS. ANGELS.

If we ever think of the angels at all it would probably be around


Christmas time when Hymns and Carols seem full of their
presence. In many homes, shopping centres and city malls around
the world you will find a Christmas tree topped by a star or by a
plastic angel. But how often do we consider these magnificent
creatures at other times of the year? At this special time of year even
non-believers get caught up with the warmth of love and friendship
and somehow we know that there is something more going on than
plastic angels and booze. None-the-less, it's a pity that the angelic is
a subject that is rarely talked about, thought of or taught in Catholic
circles in recent times and yet there is a wealth of spiritual
assistance available to every Christian in the Body of Christ who
are surrounded at all times by a great cloud of witnesses (Heb.12:1).

One such notion is that when we die we become an angel and do good for others. This is
certainly the view of Oprah Winfrey, but I am not sure where this idea comes from except
that I remember people using it as a way of explaining what happens after death to young
children. In any event, it contradicts the Biblical understanding of the Angelic which
informs us that we will "Judge the Angels." It would seem that these ideas come from early
folklore and fairy tales which have their roots in a European pre-Christian era. This would
no doubt be the reason why so many Christians have rejected their existence as childish
notions unbecoming of an intelligent adult.
However, in spite of this, the angelic has become very popular in recent years with the
advent of the New Age Movement. Its adherents often use Christian terminology such as
"Guardian Angels" to describe consultation with the dead or evil spirits. The angels they are
referring to, were until recent years, called "Spirit Guides" or "Familiar Spirits" and are
clearly demonic, pagan and occult in origin. In an attempt to clear up this confusion for
Christians is the reason for this article. I hope that it will spread some light on the reality
and truth of God's Holy Angels whose role is to minister to God and His people.

Ministering Spirits.
These angels whom the Bible calls "Ministering Spirits" (Heb.1:14) have many varying
different roles and functions to assist the Christian here on the earth. Not only do they
minister to God before the Throne day and night but they also convey God's messages to His
people.
Some have specific roles and are created to perform specific tasks such as the Guardian
Angels of countries, territories and individuals. Although this subject is too vast to enter
into here, perhaps this short article will allow you to study the subject further.

The Luciferic Rebellion and The War


in Heaven.
The Bible only mentions the names of four angels from the countless millions that have
been created. They are Gabrielle, whose name means, "God is Mighty", Michael, whose
name means, "Like God", Raphael, whose name means, "God Heals", and Lucifer, whose
name means, "Light Bearer". All of them were created good!
It was Lucifer who rebelled against God and who through pride, coveted the Throne of God
and the worship that belonged to God alone. This resulted in a mighty war in Heaven.
Lucifer, along with one third of the angelic host was defeated by the Archangel Michael and
was cast down from Heaven to the earth where he became known as "Satan", a name which
literally means; "Adversary" as well as "Devil", which means, "Accuser of the brethren".

So let us examine this angelic war


and its outcome.
In Revelations chapter 12 we find the story. A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven:
a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars
on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then
another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns
and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung
them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so
that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male
child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to
God and to his throne. The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God,
where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
*And there was war in heaven.* Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the
dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place
in heaven. The great dragon was hurled downthat ancient serpent called the devil, or
Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with
him.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: Now have come the salvation and the power and
the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers,
who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They overcame

him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their
lives so much as to shrink from death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell
in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is
filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.
When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who
had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so
that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken
care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpents reach.
Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and
sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth
and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon
was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring
those who obey Gods commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus. (Revelations 12
1-17)
Chapter 7 to 9, *And there was war in heaven* refers to the events prior to the creation of
Adam. We find this in Genesis 2: 9, where God warns about two trees in the middle of the
Garden of Eden, the Tree of Life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Cast down before the creation of Adam, Lucifer, referred to as the serpent is already on
the earth. The two trees with either eternal life or eternal death were there before the
creation of Adam, and so God did not tempt Adam with the Tree of the knowledge of good
and evil as many might think, but simply warned Adam of the danger and consequence
already present.
Later in Luke 10: 17 - 20, the seventy-two disciples return from a mission with joy and said
to Jesus, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." He replied, "I saw Satan fall
like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions
and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not
rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
Jesus referred to the war in heaven because he was there. Jesus is the Word Incarnate;
the Word that created all things, including Lucifer and it is against Jesus, the Word; truth,
that Lucifer rebelled, and that war continues to this very day.
Again, in Revelations 22: 1-6, we find the end of the story regarding the triumph of the
Tree of Life and its consequence for us if we accept Jesus. Then the angel showed me the
river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the
Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the
tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of
the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of
God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his
face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not
need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And
they will reign for ever and ever. The angel said to me, "These words are trustworthy and
true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants
the things that must soon take place."
Scripture also refers to Lucifer by many other names all of which describe his "fallen
nature." These names are, "Beelzebub", "Prince of Darkness", "King of Tyre", "Father of
Lies". "Day Star", "The Thief", "god of this world" (cosmos: Gr. world system) but, never
Lucifer again. He is no longer entitled to that name which described his original nature and
ministry. Perhaps this would be a good time to put Satan in his proper place and

perspective because in these days he is being worshipped as a god by many people around
the world.

It becomes clear; Satan (Lucifer) is


not an equal and opposite of God!
Just like all the other angels he was created by God and therefore by definition, he is not
God. Satan is a creature and therefore he is subject to God like all else in heaven and earth
and he has no more rights or power than God allows.
Popular (New Age) thought adopts the concept of Yin and Yang and believe this to be
perfect balance and harmony. However, it is self evident that this is erroneous thinking;
even the law of physics testifies to this in that darkness is merely and absence of light, and
therefore, unlike light dispelling darkness, darkness cannot enter light nor extinguish it.
The only outcome of the war between good and evil in this thinking is perpetual war due to
the neutralizing of this equality, and hence there will never be peace with a Yin and Yang
or any New Age philosophy, but, it does keep us entertained and Hollywood in business.
The beginning chapters of the Book of Job show the true inequality very clearly (Job 1:612 - Job 2:1-7) and even though Satan has the effrontery to enter God's presence with the
other angels (sons) he does so to "accuse" God's people. However, you will notice that Satan
can do no more than God allows him to do. "And the Lord said to Satan, "Behold, all that he
has is in your power, only do not lay a hand upon his person" (Job 1:12) and of course Satan
did not because he could not!
These are comforting thoughts when we are faced with such evils as we see in the world
today, but because of the "New Covenant" in the Blood of Christ each Christian is given
authority by God over all the "works" of the adversary. In fact we are "commissioned" by
God to "announce" the Good News of the Kingdom, and to bring the captives out of
darkness into His wonderful light and so in Mark 16:17, we read, "In my name (Jesus) they
will expel demons".
The authority that the Father gave to Jesus is now transferred to His Church.
Unfortunately, just like all the good angels, the evil ones and the Devil himself have also
been relegated to the area of myth by many Christians whilst the non-believers are very
much aware of his reality.

Satan worship is on the increase.


Hiding in myth is a good trick if he can get away with it. It suits his purpose when the only
ones who do not believe that he exists are the only ones who can dislodge him from his
strongholds. His "new look" is called the "New Age."
This is just new packaging for a very old thing: Sorcery. It's selling well at the moment and it
has even got through to Christians who have lowered their defences against a subtle sales pitch
aimed at a spiritual void.
One of the most nefarious examples today is the message of Marilyn Manson's "Anti Christ
Superstar." This album solicits acceptance of Manson as a saviour. It calls young people to kill
their parents and whoever else they see as their enemy and then kill themselves. According to
Manson, this is how they get saved and set free.

In addition, The Church of Satan is well established under law in the USA and possibly
elsewhere too. Television proliferates these beliefs through such programmes as Charmed,
Ghost Whisperer, Supernatural and many other witchcraft programmes that are very popular
with our youth.

We are able to call on the angelic to


assist us when we need help.
Along with the Word of God, the Power, and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit working on our
behalf, we also have countless millions of angels at our disposal in the same way that Jesus
did when he was arrested in Gethsemane.... "do you not suppose that I can call on my
Father to provide at a moment's notice more than twelve legions of angels" (Mat 26:53).
Psalm 91 is worth reading and studying because it refers to the protection the Father
provides for all His children who find themselves in dangerous circumstances. It informs us
that by remaining in a close relationship with God. He promises to rescue us from: the
snare of the Fowler, the destroying pestilence, the terror by night, the arrow by day, and
from plagues, the wicked, evil, and affliction.
Then, in verse 11, it says, "for to His angels He has given command about you, that they
guard you in all your ways." And again in verse 13, it says: "you shall tread upon the asp
and the viper; you shall trample down the lion and the dragon." Notice that it says, "you
will". It is "we" who do it! By what power? By the power of God, of course. That is "our"
authority and, let's face it, "if God is for us, who can be against us?" (Rom 8:31) It stands to
reason that if God is for us everything that is of God is for us too. We are never alone as
much as we may think that we are. God's angels are ever present to help us in all that we
do.

Angels are countless in number (Rev.5:11)


"Their cavalry troops whose count I heard were two hundred million in number." (Rev 9:16)
Angels are immortal Celestial Spirits created by God. They are created to represent Him
and to guard His interests (Ps.148: 5-6). Angels were created before God created the world
(Job.1:6,).
Angels do not have corporal bodies but they can manifest themselves in human form. An
example of this is seen in the account of Lot regarding Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen.19,
Acts.10:30, Tobit 12:11-22).
I recommend that you read the whole book of Tobit where you will see the wonderful
deeds of the Archangel Raphael on his behalf. Raphael is one of the seven spirits before the
Throne of God. He seems to be the angel who protects the family. In this account, you will
see how he saves Raguel from the wicked demon, Asmodeus (Arabic: "the destroyer") who
has killed seven of her husbands before they could consummate the marriage and how he
heals Tobit of his blindness and helps Tobit's son Tobias to successfully marry Raguel. Then
in the ending chapters he reveals a truth about his angelic nature.

(Although non Catholics do not accept this book as Canon of Scripture, the book of Tobit is a magnificent insight into the
role of Angels that was richly expressed in Hebrew Angelology and belief. The Catholic Church accepts Tobit as part of
the Canon of Scripture).

Celestial Beauty.
Occasionally angels will appear in all their celestial beauty and glory (Matt 28:3, Dan.10:56). In Daniel 10: 12-14, and verses 20-21, you will see Gabrielle and Michael in their role of
bringing an answer to prayer and how they deal with the demonic angel of the kingdom of
Persia.

Angels do not marry.


They are pure spirit beings and are referred to as a 'company' rather than a 'race'. They are
always referred to in the masculine gender. (Matt.22:30, Luke 20: 34-36). St. Thomas
Aguinas tells us that because angels are referred to as a company and not a race they
cannot procreate; they are pure spirit beings with no need of a body or its attributes. In
wahtever body they might have appeared are only apparant bodies for our comfort when
encountering them.

Angels have different functions.


Angels have different functions and are created for specific tasks and they have various
levels of authority which include: "Thrones", "Dominions", "Seraphim", "Cherubim",
"Angels", "Archangels", and "Guardian Angels" (Col. 1:16, Jude 9.). Guardian Angels are
given to children when they are born and are there to minister to them throughout their
life (Matt. 18; 10).

Angelic worship.
Angels worship before the Throne of God and serve Him day and night (Ps. 148: 2, Tobit
12:15, Heb. 1:6, Rev. 4: 5-8). The angels celebrate before the Throne of God every time a
sinner repents and turns to God. (Luke 15; 10,) Just think how much Heaven will rejoice
when we really get moving with Evangelisation!

Angels escort Christians to heaven


when they die (Luke 16:22)
The angels record our deeds, good and bad, in a book that will be opened at the final
Judgement (Mal.3:16, Rev.20:12). Angels have the authority to execute God's Judgement
on Cities, Nations and People (Eccl. 5:6, Ezek. 9:1-6, Ps. 33:4-6, Kings 19:35, Acts 12:23).

Angels are Messengers of God not


ascended masters.

Angels are messengers of God to His people (Zech. 1: 9, 13-14, 19 Luke 1:11-20, Luke.
1:26-38) and it is this encounter that dominates our Christmas celebration. However,
appearances of the angels are usually brief and formal. They are aimed at improving our
relationship with the Lord rather than attracting attention to themselves (Revelation 22: 89)

We will judge the Angels.


Until we enter the fullness of our redemption the angels enjoy a superior position to us,
but they will then serve under us as the Bride of Christ when we become the elite of all
God's creation (Rev. 21: 9-14, 2Tim.2:12). We will even judge the angels (1Cor.6:3).
However, because angels are so magnificent, people have fallen into the sin of angel
worship. To us they may seem like God Himself, but to God they are as far away from His
perfection as your dog is to you. We must always remember that the angels, good and bad,
are creatures, they are not gods. Saint Thomas Aquinas points out that the angels are not
supernatural simply because the condition of an angel as a created being is natural to his
state. God and God alone is the only supernatural being. So the Bible warns us not to
worship angels (Col. 1:18, - Rev. 19: 10).

God's Holy Angels are ever present


to help us.
It is comforting to know whom and what you have working on your side. Angels and
Christians are partners and allies in the spiritual warfare in which we find ourselves. They
assist us to dislodge Satan from his stronghold in the world. When Intercessors come
together and prayer prevails it brings powerful angels to aid and assist us to hinder the
workings of Satan (Hebrews 1:4, Daniel 10:12-13).

We must not confuse the works of


the angels with the role of the Holy
Spirit.
The role of the angels and the role of the Holy Spirit are very different even though they
are companion roles in our lives by assisting us to build the Church and in establishing the
Kingdom of God where we live. The difference lies in that the role of the angels is to
administer material affairs. The role of the Holy Spirit is to reveal the mind of God and to
make Jesus known. Matthew 4:11 shows this distinction clearly; Jesus was "led" by the
Spirit, "taught" by the Spirit, and "filled" with the Spirit, but He was "defended" and 'fed' by
the angels.

Angels are also territorial spirits and

are assigned to particular earthly


territories.
The Archangel Michael is the Guardian Angel of Israel (and ours too). The Bible shows us
that Cities are under angelic guardianship (Dan. 12:1, Ezek. 9:1, Acts.16:9, Acts.10:30).
When we read Revelations Chapters 2 and 3, we can see this clearly: "To the presiding
spirit of the Church in Ephesus". The "presiding spirit" = literally; angels. (NAB footnotes).
Angels were thought of as being in charge of whole communities and individuals alike.
(Matt. 18:10, Acts 12:15).

"Only God is home for the love of the angels, just as He is for us.
The angels must make their way home, for love's fire is the Divine
Flame, or there is no warmth". (St Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologica / Hebrews. 1:7).
It was love's flame that warmed the heart of a young virgin when the Archangel
Gabrielle came to announce the good news that a saviour was to be born. It is
Gabrielle that God sends to announce "Good News". Every major proclamation
of God was announced by Gabrielle and considering that Mary would have been
well acquainted with the angelic tradition of her faith such as we have looked
at here. It's not so surprising that she was a little afraid when she was
confronted with such a being as Gabrielle although her fear was that of respect
rather than that born of a lack of faith. It was her faith to say yes that brought
about the greatest miracle of God in all of history, past, present and future.
When the time came for the Saviour to enter into the world, angels appeared to
shepherds and proclaimed the "good news" of a Saviour born. The Glory of God
shone around them with an angelic multitude of the Heavenly Host, praising
God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and peace to those on whom His
favour rests" (Luke.2:9-14). The Shepherds saw that Glory on that first
Christmas night and Mary treasured these things in her heart (Luke 2:19).
As you go about your duties next Christmas Season, and you happen to notice
a little plastic angel on your Christmas tree, stop a while, and ponder in your
heart the Glory that surrounds you and your family. You have powerful friends in
high places and perhaps your Christmas Carols might come to mean a little
more to you than you may have previously thought.

M iltons speaker begins Paradise Lost by stating that his subject will be Adam and Eves
disobedience and fall from grace. He invokes a heavenly muse and asks for help in
relating his ambitious story and Gods plan for humankind. The action begins with Satan
and his fellow rebel angels who are found chained to a lake of fire in Hell. They quickly

free themselves and fly to land, where they discover minerals and construct
Pandemonium, which will be their meeting place. Inside Pandemonium, the rebel angels,
who are now devils, debate whether they should begin another war with God. Beezelbub
suggests that they attempt to corrupt Gods beloved new creation, humankind. Satan
agrees, and volunteers to go himself. As he prepares to leave Hell, he is met at the gates
by his children, Sin and Death, who follow him and build a bridge between Hell and
Earth.

In Heaven, God orders the angels together for a council of their own. He tells them of
Satans intentions, and the Son volunteers himself to make the sacrifice for humankind.
Meanwhile, Satan travels through Night and Chaos and finds Earth. He disguises himself
as a cherub to get past the Archangel Uriel, who stands guard at the sun. He tells Uriel
that he wishes to see and praise Gods glorious creation, and Uriel assents. Satan then
lands on Earth and takes a moment to reflect. Seeing the splendor of Paradise brings him
pain rather than pleasure. He reaffirms his decision to make evil his good, and continue to
commit crimes against God. Satan leaps over Paradises wall, takes the form of a
cormorant (a large bird), and perches himself atop the Tree of Life. Looking down at
Satan from his post, Uriel notices the volatile emotions reflected in the face of this socalled cherub and warns the other angels that an impostor is in their midst. The other
angels agree to search the Garden for intruders.
Meanwhile, Adam and Eve tend the Garden, carefully obeying Gods supreme order not
to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. After a long day of work, they return to their bower
and rest. There, Satan takes the form of a toad and whispers into Eves ear. Gabriel, the
angel set to guard Paradise, finds Satan there and orders him to leave. Satan prepares to
battle Gabriel, but God makes a sign appear in the skythe golden scales of justiceand
Satan scurries away. Eve awakes and tells Adam about a dream she had, in which an
angel tempted her to eat from the forbidden tree. Worried about his creation, God sends
Raphael down to Earth to teach Adam and Eve of the dangers they face with Satan.
Raphael arrives on Earth and eats a meal with Adam and Eve. Raphael relates the story of
Satans envy over the Sons appointment as Gods second-in-command. Satan gathered
other angels together who were also angry to hear this news, and together they plotted a
war against God. Abdiel decides not to join Satans army and returns to God. The angels
then begin to fight, with Michael and Gabriel serving as co-leaders for Heavens army.
The battle lasts two days, when God sends the Son to end the war and deliver Satan and
his rebel angels to Hell. Raphael tells Adam about Satans evil motives to corrupt them,
and warns Adam to watch out for Satan. Adam asks Raphael to tell him the story of
creation. Raphael tells Adam that God sent the Son into Chaos to create the universe. He
created the earth and stars and other planets. Curious, Adam asks Raphael about the
movement of the stars and planets. Eve retires, allowing Raphael and Adam to speak
alone. Raphael promptly warns Adam about his seemingly unquenchable search for
knowledge. Raphael tells Adam that he will learn all he needs to know, and that any other
knowledge is not meant for humans to comprehend. Adam tells Raphael about his first

memories, of waking up and wondering who he was, what he was, and where he was.
Adam says that God spoke to him and told him many things, including his order not to
eat from the Tree of Knowledge. After the story, Adam confesses to Raphael his intense
physical attraction to Eve. Raphael reminds Adam that he must love Eve more purely and
spiritually. With this final bit of advice, Raphael leaves Earth and returns to Heaven.
Eight days after his banishment, Satan returns to Paradise. After closely studying the
animals of Paradise, he chooses to take the form of the serpent. Meanwhile, Eve suggests
to Adam that they work separately for awhile, so they can get more work done. Adam is
hesitant but then assents. Satan searches for Eve and is delighted to find her alone. In the
form of a serpent, he talks to Eve and compliments her on her beauty and godliness. She
is amazed to find an animal that can speak. She asks how he learned to speak, and he tells
her that it was by eating from the Tree of Knowledge. He tells Eve that God actually
wants her and Adam to eat from the tree, and that his order is merely a test of their
courage. She is hesitant at first but then reaches for a fruit from the Tree of Knowledge
and eats. She becomes distraught and searches for Adam. Adam has been busy making a
wreath of flowers for Eve. When Eve finds Adam, he drops the wreath and is horrified to
find that Eve has eaten from the forbidden tree. Knowing that she has fallen, he decides
that he would rather be fallen with her than remain pure and lose her. So he eats from the
fruit as well. Adam looks at Eve in a new way, and together they turn to lust.
God immediately knows of their disobedience. He tells the angels in Heaven that Adam
and Eve must be punished, but with a display of both justice and mercy. He sends the Son
to give out the punishments. The Son first punishes the serpent whose body Satan took,
and condemns it never to walk upright again. Then the Son tells Adam and Eve that they
must now suffer pain and death. Eve and all women must suffer the pain of childbirth and
must submit to their husbands, and Adam and all men must hunt and grow their own food
on a depleted Earth. Meanwhile, Satan returns to Hell where he is greeted with cheers. He
speaks to the devils in Pandemonium, and everyone believes that he has beaten God. Sin
and Death travel the bridge they built on their way to Earth. Shortly thereafter, the devils
unwillingly transform into snakes and try to reach fruit from imaginary trees that shrivel
and turn to dust as they reach them.

God tells the angels to transform the Earth. After the fall, humankind must suffer hot and
cold seasons instead of the consistent temperatures before the fall. On Earth, Adam and
Eve fear their approaching doom. They blame each other for their disobedience and
become increasingly angry at one another. In a fit of rage, Adam wonders why God ever
created Eve. Eve begs Adam not to abandon her. She tells him that they can survive by
loving each other. She accepts the blame because she has disobeyed both God and Adam.
She ponders suicide. Adam, moved by her speech, forbids her from taking her own life.
He remembers their punishment and believes that they can enact revenge on Satan by
remaining obedient to God. Together they pray to God and repent.

God hears their prayers, and sends Michael down to Earth. Michael arrives on Earth, and
tells them that they must leave Paradise. But before they leave, Michael puts Eve to sleep
and takes Adam up onto the highest hill, where he shows him a vision of humankinds
future. Adam sees the sins of his children, and his childrens children, and his first vision
of death. Horrified, he asks Michael if there is any alternative to death. Generations to
follow continue to sin by lust, greed, envy, and pride. They kill each other selfishly and
live only for pleasure. Then Michael shows him the vision of Enoch, who is saved by
God as his warring peers attempt to kill him. Adam also sees the story of Noah and his
family, whose virtue allows them to be chosen to survive the flood that kills all other
humans. Adam feels remorse for death and happiness for humankinds redemption. Next
is the vision of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. This story explains the perversion of
pure language into the many languages that are spoken on Earth today. Adam sees the
triumph of Moses and the Israelites, and then glimpses the Sons sacrifice to save
humankind. After this vision, it is time for Adam and Eve to leave Paradise. Eve awakes
and tells Adam that she had a very interesting and educating dream. Led by Michael,
Adam and Eve slowly and woefully leave Paradise hand in hand into a new world.

Archangel Gabriel

angel. Most angels are considered androgynous, so theyve both male and female
aspects. But certain astrological aspects indicate that Gabriel is more female than

west is associated with the element of water. Water is linked to the ruling planet
Moon and the sign of Cancer. The cycles of the moon govern the menstrual cycle of
the female, and the tides of the oceans and seas.
In Judaism, Gabriel is referred toas the angel of judgement and strength. In
Catholocism, Archangel Gabriel is recognised as one of the three chief angels along
with Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael.
In Islam, Gabriel is the most highly regarded angel (sometime written as Jabra'il)
because he was the intermediary between Allah and the Prophet Mohammed.
Gabriel is othern associated with the Moon, water, emotions and the feminine side of
Nature. His name means 'God is my strength' and he's said to rule the spirit of
mankind. Gabriel is said to be the angel that connects the astral and heavenly
worlds. He also helps gives guidance and help with prophecy and vision. So if your
