 Heirarchy of Angels



Angelic Realm-Archangels

by Bonnie Moss 2003-10

   
Angels around us! 

There are many angel stories circulating ,angel pins 
are ever popular, what about television? "Touched 
by an Angel" ran for many seasons. Lately, the 
series "Joan of Arcadia" is getting good reviews. 
These are figments of imagination, but it does 
carry a message. 
 
 MICHAEL  Michael is referred to by some 
as "Prefect of God". 

His element is FIRE, he faces SOUTH.  Michael is best 
known among men, for he is the protector of humanity. 
He is called upon in times of danger, invoke his 
protection, asked for his wisdom. He is acknowledged 
by most sacred traditions. It is believed it was Archangel 
Michael who rescued Daniel and is friends from the
lion's den. To Christians, he was the one who was sent 
by God to inform Mary of her coming death. 

In Islamic lore, Michael is described as having wings 
of green emerald, covered with saffron hairs, each 
containing many faces and many mouths and tongues 
who speak in countless dialects. They seek his help 
to implore the pardon of Allah. 

Michael was the Commander-in-chief in the was against 
the legion of fallen angels, where Lucifer and his fallen 
angels were driven out of the heavens. He is the 
"Prince of "Light" described in the Dead Sea scrolls, 
who led  a war against the Sons of Darkness, an angelic 
battle with the fallen angels led by Belial. He is the 
guardian angel of Israel,he is the commander-in-chief 
of God's host of angel armies.

He is depicted  with a sword, or with a scale weighing 
the souls of the dead. He is also called the warrior angel. 

 GABRIEL  
In Hebrew, Gabriel means " Man of God".  
His element is WATER, he faces WEST 

This confers on him the title, Messenger of God. It 
was Archangel Gabriel who visited Mary to announce 
that she was chosen to be the mother of the saviour.
He also visited Mary's cousin Elizabeth to bring tidings 
of the coming birth of her son, John the Baptist. In 
Islam, Gabriel is the Spirit of Truth who dictated the 
Koran to Mohammed.

In Jewish legend, Gabriel parted the waters of the 
Red Sea as Moses and his people were pursued by 
the Pharaoh's troops. Gabriel came to Joan of Arc,
inspired her to go to the aid of the dauphin, the eldest 
son of the King of France. These apparitions of Gabriel 
arouse interest  as the heavenly awakener, angel of 
vibratory transformation. He is described as a human 
figure with long hair, multicolored wings and seen 
holding a sceptre or lily. 

RAPHAEL 
His element is AIR,and he  faces EAST He  is referred to a.
as the healer of God". Among the archangels,Raphael is 
perhaps the most endearing. Great masters like Boticelli, 
Titan,Rembrandt features Raphael on their canvas. He 
is charged with healing the Earth, he is known to be the 
travelers'Guide, also a Guardian of youth.

As a healer, he was assigned medical missions, he healed 
the pain of circumsicion for Abraham in his old age. He is 
frequently depicted in Western art. Raphael is the travelers 
guide and guardian of youth. The ruler of the second heaven 
shows up in Christian paintings carrying a pilgrim's stick, 
a wallet and a fish. 

Raphael is also associated with medical missions. God sent 
Raphael to cure poor Jacob's thigh after he'd been roughed 
up by Samael. And it's also claimed that Raphael gave Noah 
a much-prized 'medical book' after the flood. Legends abound 
about Raphael. When Solomon prayed to God for aid in building 
the great temple in Jerusalem, Raphael personally delivered
the gift of a magic ring with the power to subdue all demons. 
Raphael has also been called 'a guide in hell,' which after 
all,is where healing is needed the most

URIEL  
His element is EARTH, faces NORTH 
.He is called the "Light of God"

Uriel is ranked variously as a seraph, cherub, regent of the 
Sun, flame of God, presider over Hades. He is best-known 
as the Archangel of Salvatio, of the Presence, a most high 
posting since only the highest voltage angels can sustain 
the presence of God. Uriel is thought to have been "the spirit 
who stood at the gate of the lost Eden with the fiery sword." 

The Book of Enoch tells us God sent Uriel to warn Noah of 
the impending flood, and elsewhere it is written that he 
disclosed the mysteries of the heavenly arcana to Ezra, 
and that he also led Abraham out of Ur in the Chaldean 
region.Some have claimed that the divine art of alchemy 
was brought down to Earth by Uriel, and that it was also 
this angel who gave the Kabbalah, the Hebrew mystic
tradition, to humankind.
