Biblical Truths about Archangels, Principalities, and Angels

The Archangels - The Principalities - The Angels

The Archangels, the Principalities, and the Angels belong to the lower order, they are the ones who watch over all created things.


Archangels

The Archangels are a swift movement, their function is to sustain the life of all earthly creatures including wild beasts, cattle, flying birds, reptiles, fish and everything that has life, from the mosquito to the elephant are entrusted to their care and government by the command of God. The power to sustain human life is exclusive to ELOHIM. 


Here are the names of the Archangels who rule over all earthly creatures:

  • Uriel, one of the holy angels who presides over sorrow and fear; 

  • Raphael, one of the holy angels who watches over the spirits of men; 

  • Raguel, one of the holy angels who inflicts punishment on the world and the luminaries; 

  • Michael, one of the holy angels who oversees human virtue and commands the nations; 

  • Sarakiel, one of the holy angels who watches over the spirits of men who transgress; 

  • Gabriel, one of the holy angels who oversees Ikisat the Paradise (Enoch c. 20)



Principalities

The Principalities are a fixed movement that has the control of the upper sky. Their function is to stand in places where the clouds ascend from the ends of the earth and to bring down rain to the earth. They control all changes in the atmosphere, thunder, lightning, rain, clouds, whirlwinds, storms, winds, and other celestial manifestations.



Angels

Angels are a movement that has spiritual knowledge of everything on earth and in heaven. The assignment entrusted to them by God is to watch over each and every man. With each living man in this world is assigned, for his protection, at least one angel of this inferior order" who directs the man from his birth until his death. This is their function.


Angels are called "sons of God" which differs from the expression "children of God" specific to humans who choose to submit themselves entirely to the authority of YAHWEH. 

  • Genesis 6:2 "The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they took as wives whomever they chose."

  • Job 1:6 "One day the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them"


They were created before the foundation of the earth, before the creation of the firmament, plants, animals, and man. They fully witnessed the work of YAHWEH. 

  • Job 38: 4-7 "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding. Who fixed its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its foundations set, or who laid its cornerstone, while the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?


They are all subjected to the authority of YESHUA.

  • 1 Peter 3:22 "Who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers subject to Him."

  • Revelations 14:6 "Then I saw another angel flying overhead, with the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation and tribe and tongue and people."


They are superior to humans in strength and ability. But when righteous men will also enter eternity, they will judge the fallen angels. 

  • Psalm 103: 20 "Bless the LORD, all His angels mighty in strength who carry out His word, who hearken to the voice of His command."

  • Hebrews 2: 6-8 "But somewhere it is testified in these words: “What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You care for him? You made him a little lower than the angels; You crowned him with glory and honor and placed everything under his feet.” When God subjected all things to him, He left nothing outside of his control. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him"

  • 1 Corinthians 6:3 "Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!"


They protect us and celebrate with joy when a sinner turns away from evil.

  • Psalm 91:11 "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways."

  • Luke 15:10 "In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents.”


They have the discernment of good and evil.

  • 2 Samuel 14:17 "And now your servant says, ‘May the word of my lord the king bring me rest, for my lord the king is able to discern good and evil, just like the angel of God. May the LORD your God be with you.’ "


We are forbidden to worship them.

  • Revelations 19:10 "So I fell at his feet to worship him. But he told me, “Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who rely on the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”"

  • Colossians 2:18 "Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you with speculation about what he has seen. Such a person is puffed up without basis by his unspiritual mind."

  • Revelations 22: 8-9 "And I am John, who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had shown me these things. but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”


They can appear to humans in male or female form. They can also take on a human appearance and walk among us without being noticed. 

  • Zechariah 5:9 "Then I lifted up my eyes and saw two women approaching, with the wind in their wings. Their wings were like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth.

  • Acts 1:10-11 "They were looking intently into the sky as He was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.”

  • Hebrews 13:2 "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it."


They neither marry nor die.

  • Luke 20:35-36 "But those who are considered worthy to share in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage. In fact, they can no longer die, because they are like the angels. And since they are sons of the resurrection, they are sons of God.


May the Holy Spirit guide you in the understanding of this message. 🙏
