What is an Archangel?
We are all familiar with angels, and most people believe that they have a guardian angel who protects and guides them throughout their lives.
Archangels are like guardian angels in that they are directly involved in the affairs of living beings such as humans and animals.
But archangels are of a higher order and act with a higher spiritual authority.
In the Book of Revelations it is mentioned that there are seven angels who dwell in the presence of the Lord. These are the original seven archangels.
Angels, including guardian angels and archangels, are common to all major religious traditions including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and even many forms of Buddhism.
Archangels are powerful celestial beings who are charged with the responsibility of carrying out the will of God and spreading God’s infinite love to all sentient beings.
