The Great Angel Michael

Daniel 10: 4-13

On the twenty-fourth day of the first month of the year I was standing on the bank of the mighty Tigris River.

I looked up and saw someone who was wearing linen clothes and a belt of fine gold.  His body shone like a jewel.  His face’ was as bright as a flash of lightning, and his eyes blazed like fire.  His arms and legs shone like polished bronze, and his voice sounded like the roar of a great crowd.

I was the only one who saw the vision.  Those who were with me did not see anything, but they were terrified and ran and hid.

I was left there alone, watching this amazing vision.  I had no strength left, and my face was so changed that no one could have recognized me.

When I heard his voice, I fell to the ground unconscious and lay there face downward.

Then a hand took hold of me and raised me to my hands and knees; I was still trembling.

The angel said to me, “Daniel, GOD loves you.  Stand up and listen carefully to what I am going to say, I have been sent to you.”  When he said this, I stood up trembling.

Then he said, “Daniel don’t be afraid. GOD has heard your prayers ever since the first day you decided to humble yourself in order to gain understanding.  I have come in answer to your prayer.

The angel prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed me for twenty-one days.  Then Michael, one of the chief angels, came to help me, because I have been left there alone in Persia.

I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the future.  This is a vision about the future.”

Daniel 12: 1-3

The angel wearing linen clothes said, “At that time the great angel Michael, who guards your people, will appear.  Then there will be time of troubles, the worst since nations first came into existence! When that time comes, all the people of your nation whose names are written in GOD’s book will be saved.

Many of those who have already died will live again; some will enjoy eternal life, and some will suffer eternal disgrace.

The wise leaders will shine with all the brightness of the sky.  And those who taught many people to do what is right will shine like the stars forever.”

Jude 9

Not even the chief angel Michael did this.  In his quarrel with the Devil, when they argued about who will have the body of Moses, Michael did not dare condemn Devil with insulting words, but said, “The LORD rebuke you!”

Revelation 12: 7-9

The war broke in heaven.  Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, who fought back with his angels;

but the dragon was defeated, and he and his angels were not allowed to stay in heaven any longer.

The huge dragon was thrown out- that ancient serpent, named the Devil, or Satan, that deceived the whole world.  He was thrown down to earth, and all his angels with him.
