Duty of Archangel Michael in Celestial church of christ
Alot of rumours have been passed on by those who don’t understand the doctrines of the Celestial church of christ and the new generation Christians who only believe in criticism.
Questions have been asked why celestials start their prayers with – Jehovah, Jesus christ anf Holy Micheal.
Most prophets have brought up their own expectations forgetting all we need to know is in the Holy Bible.
According to Daniel 10:13-21 describes how Angel micheal came to help and identifies as the protector of the isrealites, while Daniel 12:1 says “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people–everyone whose name is found written in the book–will be delivered”
The book of Daniel has therefore explained the role of Angel micheal as the protector and defender of the children of God.
In the book of Revelation 12:7-8 also says Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.
God has assigned the task to Angel micheal as the leader of angels against the war of evil against the devil.
Also if we can remember the case of the body of moses in Jude 1:9 says Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
It is not without a doubt that the war against thr forces of evil, in other to preserve your physical body and you against the vices of evil, angel Michael plays one of the most important roles and as seen in jude 1:9 Holy Micheal rebukes the devil in the name of our Lord (God/Jehovah).
Celestial church of christ hymn 5 stanza 2 : (English)
When Jesus has come, We will kneel down St. Michael will descend into our midst When Jesus has come we will kneel down St. Michael will descend into our midst When we have knelt down, And Michael is come Let all sinners ask for forgiveness When we have knelt down And Michael is come Let all sinners ask for forgiveness.
2. Nibo la o duro de Jesu? Tawa yio fi ri? N’ile esin la wa o ri Jesu. Bi Jesu ba de, k’awa wole, St. Michael yio sokale sinu wa o. T’aba wole tan, Michael ba de, K’awa elese wa toro idariji, T’aba wole tan, Michael ba de, K’awa elese wa toro idariji.
Once again as mentioned here in the hymn, during the 2nd coming of christ, Angel Michael will be present in our midst to ward of evil so that we can pray and ask for forgiveness from God as a sinner.
Let us endeavour to continue our doctrine as laid down by jesus christ to our pastor founder Sbj Oshoffa.
May God hear our prayers and forgive us of all our sins in Jesus name.
