The earliest reference to a system of “Seven Archangels”…They are St Jehudiel, St Gabriel, St Selatiel, St Micahel, St Uriel, St Raphael, and St Barachiel…All of these Angels protect Christ Emmanuel….
Barachiel is sometimes shown holding a white rose against the chest, or with white rose petals scattered on the clothing particularly the cloak. The scattering of rose petals was to symbolize or represent God’s sweet blessings showering down on people…He is the Chief of the Guardian Angels and regarded as the Angel of Lightning…
Jude 1:14-17 “And Enoch also, the Seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with Ten Thousands of His Saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are murmerers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent mine “Angel” to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
We are all in an invisible, spiritual battle- a cosmic conflict that has eternal implications- in which Souls of people all over the planet are at stake. Yet, most of us as Christians don’t really know our enemy.
Our greatest foe, Satan (Note: who can take many forms) has been on a mission to destroy God’s people and to discredit the cause of Christ. But who is Satan? Satan is a fallen powerful angel who led a rebellion of a third of the Angels of Heaven and now seeks to destroy all that is good and God ordained.
Created as one of the highest angelic beings (Ezekiel 28), Satan had more power, intelligence and beauty than anything or anyone in the universe except God. But Satan wasn’t satisfied with what he had and his downfall was pride. Satan wanted to be God. So Satan fell from Heaven and has been at enmity with God and God’s creation ever since.
Despite Satan’s real presence and existence, many Christians either don’t acknowledge that Satan exists or they give he/she way too much credit and blame he/she for everything that goes wrong in their life. The danger as we approach this is to think that everything has to do with Satan and demons or that nothing has to do with Satan and demons…
Instead, we need an accurate and balanced perspective of our enemy and a better understanding of Satan’s goals and tactics so that we can have Victory over the spiritual battle that has been waged against us for a long time…
You must be able to recognize and see your enemy (though they may be invisible), sense your enemy… and listen carefully to what is going on…use your supernatural gifts that you have, just waiting to be discovered, to discern the truth…and do not let Satan confuse, distract, or discredit the existence of Christ…those who live in the Holy Spirit know the exact nature of God…We all make our decision based upon what we have read, witnessed, researched, been taught, and prayed about…
The time is Now for The Armies of God to put an End to the evil in this world…
The historic Christian Church had traditionally associated the Number 8 with the entrance into the covenant with God. This understanding comes from God Himself who commanded Circumcision- the Sign of the Covenant-to be performed on the Eighth Day. God used the same language when He gave the Rainbow (Genesis 9:13):
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
The word “rainbow” used in this verse sums to the Number 800 which is also the value of Greek words “Lord” and “Faith.” It is also the value of the final letter of the Greek alphabet, Omega. This is the essence of Faith-trusting in the Lord who will see us through to the very End, signified by Omega. This lifts us above our present state to behold our Shepherd who is Lord above all.
These eight days always include one Shabbat, the Seventh day, which corresponds to the experience of perfect harmony with nature. The eighth day of circumcision represents the Power of the soul to Contact that Light which Totally transcends nature. Through circumcision the Jew is given the power, throughout his life, to overcome all of the obstacles nature may seem to place in the face of his service of God.
The Transcendence associated with the Number Eight-recognized by both Jews and Christians-Ultimately manifests in the Everlasting New Beginning found in the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Circumcision on the Eighth Day is a Supernatural typological prophecy of the renewal that comes through entrance into God’s covenant, which manifests as Baptism in the New Testament, and ultimately a symbol of the everlasting life given through the resurrection of Christ.
We have multiple Independent Converging lines of association between Baptism, Salvation through the Flood, Resurrection, and the Number Eight that points clearly to the deliberate Design and Teaching of God’s Wisdom. It is for that reason that the Church ha traditionally designed Baptismal fonts as Octagons.
“The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the “print” of the nails, and put my finger into the “print” of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
And after Eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.”
“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
“But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side,a nd forthwith came out blood and Water.”
“And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and My God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou has seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen , and yet have believed.”
The March toward implementation of the Mark of the Beast is a fascinating story. Its origins can be traced back to innovators and inventors within not only the academic research community, but also within the electronics, computer, and COMMUNICATIONS industries, along with government involvement, contributions from major retail companies, as well as the Banking and Finance sectors. Take a close look at where we are at the present time and how every country around the world has been converged into the final path of the economic system of the Beast. It is as clear as ever that these varied but interrelated developments have led to an insidious Plot to totally change the way that the world operates and does business. As the man of sin arises (ask yourself a question: Has he already arisen?) Once identified, so will our understanding of the system and the mark. It is only through an understanding of these developments that we can discover how the Mark and the numbers 666 have characterized the system of the Beast.
The warnings of what happens to those with the mark and to which Side these people belong are located in the last Nine Chapters of Revelation.
Do not be fooled into thinking that the mark of the beast has not already been used or is not present…It is VERY clear that we see it Everywhere.
“And he said unto me, “It is done. “I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life Freely…He that overcommits shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”
The man or woman who reads the book of Revelation understands them only according to the sense of the letter; namely, that the visible heaven and earth will perish, and a new heaven will exist, and that the holy city Jerusalem, answering to the measures above described, will descend upon the New Earth; but the angels understand these things altogether differently; namely, what man understands naturally, they understand spiritually; and as the angels understand, so they signify; and this is the internal or spiritual sense of the Word. In the internal or spiritual sense, “a new heaven and a new earth” means a New Church, both in the heavens and on the earth, which will be more particularly spoken hereafter. “The city Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven” signifies its heavenly doctrine; “the length,” “the breadth,” and “the height,” which are Equal, signify all the goods and truths of that doctrine in the aggregate. By “the wall,” which is “a hundred and forty-four cubits, which is the measure of a man, that is, of an angel,” signifies all those protecting truths in the aggregate, and their quality. “The twelve gates” of pearl mean introductory truths; “the twelve angels at the gates” signify the same. “The foundations of the wall” which are “of every precious stone,” mean the knowledge on which that doctrine is founded.
