I’ll return to the discussion on the Captia of the host today. Here are some references to the names of the Captains of the hosts. Michael is named in this role as follows:

  • One of the chief Princes – Daniel 10: 13. He brought reinforcements for Chief Prince Gabriel in the fierce invisible war against  the prince of Persia.
  • Michael your prince in Dan 10: 21. He holds knowledge of the earth’s future known only to Gabriel, Jesus and Michael. He was another of the Chief Princes assigned to help Daniel.
  • The Great Prince which standeth for/defends/protects the Jews (Dan 12: 1).  This verse implies that He will become active in the defense of the Jews at the time specified.
  • He contended with the devil for Moses’ body (Jude 1: 9).
  • Revelation 12: 7-9 describes Him as a great and terrible warrior:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Michael’s nature is definitely suited to this aggressive kind of warfare, specifically against the devil himself. The descriptions of the warfare in the bible shows that God is indeed a terrible warrior. See what He did to Pharoah?

Having met Chief Prince Michael, I can truely say that He hates the devil fiercely. What a Chief Prince who has already conquered the devil. Why do we need to fear?

Have a great day!
