Michael (Archangel)

Extracts and comments from Revelation Chp. 12:7 


And there came to be (a)war in the Heaven: (b)Michael and his angels going forth to war with the (c)dragon; who resisted with his angels.          

(a)   "War in the Heaven"; this Scripturally clearly is a first occurrence, and the force used is described as "war", to convey to human minds the meaning. 

(b)    "Michael";  is the special angel (archangel) of the Jews, (Dan. 10:13-21),  and as such is championing the Jewish cause on behalf of Jehovah.

(c)    "Dragon";  i.e. Satan and his angels.
