  • Angels Of Lower Rank To God
    2,379 words
    ANGELIC OVERVIEW: "Angels are spirits", proclaimed St. Augustine!

We all think that angel should be very beautiful and clean, but this angel is just opposite of what we thou...

  • Angel Addresses Daniel
    1,894 words
    The final three chapters of Daniel consist of one long narrative. They record the final vision given to this prophet of God.

Moreover, many of the struggles that take place in this world are influenced by con...
