                                                                    CLASSES OF ANGELS

Hello again!

Can you believe another week as passed by? Times just flies by. 

But do angels fly? We like to think angels can fly and scripture does tell us angels have wings, but do they fly? Of course! Daniel 9:21 tells us “yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering.” Revelation 14:6-7 says, “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." 

What other supernatural powers do angels have? Well they, at least the arch angels, can converse with God in Job 1–2. Satan (a fallen arch angel) was able to understand Christ (Mark 8:33). In Mark 5:9, the legion of demons spoke with Christ. Many times in scripture angels act as messengers from God, thus they must have gotten their information from God Himself. 

What exactly is an arch angel? Archangels are the highest-ranking angels in heaven. God gives them the most important responsibilities, and they do their work both in the heavenly
dimension and in the earthly one. The word “archangel” is from the Greek words “arche” (ruler) and “angelos” (messenger), signifying archangels’ dual duties. Archangels rule over the universe’s daily operation on missions from God, while also delivering messages from God to human beings…(the arch angel Michael) appears to be the head archangel who often takes the lead to battle evil with good, according to accounts in the Tora and the Bible. Archangel is  a classification of angels who have great rank and power. “Apparently, there are three archangels: Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer. The word "archangel" is found in only the New Testament in two places: 1 Thess. 4:16, "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first"; and Jude 1:9, "But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, 'The Lord rebuke you.’ …. Daniel 10:21 describes Michael the archangel as "your prince," and Daniel 12:1 identifies Michael as "the great prince who protects." Even if there are multiple archangels, it seems that Michael is the chief among them.”1

Are there other classifications of angels, yes…six! Stay tuned for
next weeks writing and find out!

Until then, God bless and take care!
