“War broke out in Heaven. Michael and his Angels fought the Dragon. The Dragon and his Angels fought back, but was no match for Michael.” Revelation 12:7
“Michael,” a popular 1996 comedy, ranks high on my list of “to-watch-again” movies. Michael is a slovenly, lost angel who smells like cookies, acts like a playboy, and to everyone’s surprise, performs minor miracles. Chicago reporters want to make a tabloid story out of this rumored angel, and … I won’t tell you the rest of the story. Rent it and watch it!
The Michael angel of Revelations waged war against the devil in heaven. As I live out my life on earth, I need angels to protect and rescue me. At an angel reading party, I drew from a stack of cards the angel Michael. Many years earlier I named my son Michael–without knowing that much about Archangel Michael.
I’d hope my angel is like the movie angel, Michael, instead of the angels in flowing white gowns depicted in paintings, or like the statues and ornaments I use to decorate my home every Christmas.
Dear God, help me recognize the “Michael” angels that hover around me day and night. Amen.
