Anyway, there we were trudging along. The rest of the patrol spread out. Just to start a conversation I said, "Cold ain't it? Here I was with a good chance of getting killed any minute and I am talking about the weather. My companion seemed to understand. I heard him laugh softly. I looked at him, " I have never seen you before, I thought I knew every man in the outfit.
The name is Michael.
Michael Jackson's tragic real-life story
I was too amazed to say anything for a minute. How did he know my name, and a prayer that you had taught me? Then I smiled to myself, every guy in the outfit knows about me. Hadn't I taught the prayer to anybody who would listen? Why now and then, they even referred to me as St. Neither of us spoke for a time and then he broke the silence. Mine poured out in great clouds. There was no smile on his face now. Trouble ahead, I thought to myself, well with the Commies all around us, that is no great revelation.
Snow began to fall in great thick globs. In a brief moment the whole countryside was blotted out. And I was marching in a white fog of wet sticky particles. My companion disappeared. I felt his hand on my arm, his voice was rich and strong, "This will stop shortly.
His prophecy proved to be correct. In a few minutes the snow stopped as abruptly as it had begun. The sun was a hard shining disc. I looked back for the rest of the patrol, there was no one in sight. We lost them in that heavy fall of snow. I looked ahead as we came over a little rise. Mom, my heart stopped. There were seven of them. Seven Commies in their padded pants and jackets and their funny hats. Only there wasn't anything funny about them now. Seven rifles were aimed at us. I heard those rifles fire almost as one.
I heard the bullets. There was Michael still standing. Mom, those guys couldn't have missed, not at that range. I expected to see him literally blown to bits.

But there he stood, making no effort to free himself. He was paralyzed with fear. The Eastern Orthodox have always had strong devotions to angels, and the trend continues to date with the term "Bodiless Powers" applied to them. Archangel Michael is mentioned in a number of Eastern Orthodox hymns and prayer, and his icons are widely used within Eastern Orthodox churches. In Russia, many monasteries, cathedrals, court and merchant churches are dedicated to the Chief Commander Michael, and most Russian cities have a church or chapel dedicated to the Archangel Michael.
The place of Michael in the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria is as a saintly intercessor , where he is seen as the one: who presents to God the prayers of the just, who accompanies the souls of the dead to heaven, who defeats the devil. He is celebrated liturgically on the 12th of each Coptic month. Protestant denominations [ specify ] [ vague ] [ who? Citing Hengstenberg , John A. Lees, in International Standard Bible Encyclopedia , states: "The earlier Protestant scholars [ specify ] [ vague ] [ who?
Michael continues to be recognized [ specify ] [ vague ] [ who? Michaelis Church, Hamburg and St. Seventh-day Adventists , believe that Michael is another name for the eternal Son of the Father, the Heavenly Christ, and another name for the Word-of-God as in John 1 before he became incarnate as Jesus.
According to Adventist theology, Michael was considered the "eternal Word", and not a created being or created angel, and the one by whom all things were created. The Word was then born incarnate as Jesus. Seventh-day Adventists believe the name "Michael" is significant in showing who he is, just as " Immanuel " which means "God with us" is about who Jesus is. They believe that name "Michael" signifies "one who is God" and that as the "Archangel" or "chief or head of the angels" he led the angels and thus the statement in Revelation identifies Jesus as Michael. Seventh-day Adventists believe that "Michael" is but one of the many titles applied to the Son of God, the second person of the Godhead.
Why you should care
According to Adventists, such a view does not in any way conflict with the belief in his full deity and eternal preexistence, nor does it in the least disparage his person and work.

In the Seventh-day Adventist view, the statement in some translations of 1 Thessalonians : "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God" identifies Jesus as Archangel, which is Michael.
Jehovah's Witnesses believe Michael to be another name for Jesus in heaven, in his pre-human and post-resurrection existence.
The Story of 'Michael Row the Boat Ashore'
They consider Michael to be synonymous with Christ, described at 1 Thessalonians as descending "with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet". They believe the prominent roles assigned to Michael at Daniel and Revelation , , 16, are identical to Jesus' roles, being the one chosen to lead God's people and as the only one who "stands up", identifying the two as the same spirit being. Because they identify Michael with Jesus, he is therefore considered the first and greatest of all God's heavenly sons, God's chief messenger, who takes the lead in vindicating God's sovereignty , sanctifying his name, fighting the wicked forces of Satan and protecting God's covenant people on earth.
Also, they hold that Michael assisted Jehovah the heavenly form of Jesus in the creation of the world under the direction of God the Father and cast Satan out of heaven. In Islam, Michael, also spelt Mika'il, is one of the archangels and said to be responsible for the forces of nature. Such angels are the helpers of Michael. Allah is an enemy to those who reject Faith.
In Sunni Islam , Michael appears in the creation narrative of Adam. Accordingly, he was sent to bring a handful of earth; but the Earth not yield a piece of itself, some of which will burn. This is articulated by Al-Tha'labi whose narrative states that God will tell Earth that some will obey him and others not.
Bestow your blessing on Michael-angel of Your mercy and created for kindness and seeker of pardon for and supporter of the obedient people. Martin spoke of as the year in which Michael overcame the dragon. In , Rudolf Steiner , the founder of anthroposophy , similarly stated, "in , in November, a momentous event took place, a battle of the Powers of Darkness against the Powers of Light, ending in the image of Michael overcoming the Dragon". In the Eastern Orthodox Church , Saint Michael's principal feast day is 8 November those that use the Julian calendar celebrate it on what in the Gregorian calendar is now 21 November , honouring him along with the rest of the "Bodiless Powers of Heaven" i.

Since the victorious Battle of Lechfeld against the Hungarians in , Michael was the patron saint of the Holy Roman Empire and still is the patron saint of modern Germany and other German-speaking regions formerly covered by the realm. In mid to late 15th century, France was one of only four courts in Western Christendom without an order of knighthood. Prior to , the Scapular of St.

According to Legends of the Jews , archangel Michael was the chief of a band of angels who questioned God's decision to create man on earth. The legend of the apparition of the Archangel at around AD at a secluded hilltop cave on Monte Gargano in Italy gained a following among the Lombards in the immediate period thereafter, and by the 8th century pilgrims arrived from as far away as England.
According to Roman legends, Archangel Michael appeared with a sword over the mausoleum of Hadrian while a devastating plague persisted in Rome, in apparent answer to the prayers of Pope St Gregory I the Great c. After the plague ended, in honor of the occasion, the pope called the mausoleum " Castel Sant'Angelo " Castle of the Holy Angel , the name by which it is still known. According to Norman legend, Michael is said to have appeared to St Aubert , Bishop of Avranches , in , giving instruction to build a church on the rocky islet now known as Mont Saint-Michel.

This private revelation and prayers were approved by Pope Pius IX in From to , four young schoolgirls had reported several apparitions of Archangel Michael in the small village of Garabandal , Spain.
At Garabandal, the apparitions of the Archangel Michael were mainly reported as announcing the arrivals of the Virgin Mary. The Catholic Church has neither approved nor condemned the Garabandal apparitions. The Quran mentions him in He provides nourishments for bodies and souls and is also responsible for nature events. Mikail is often depicted as the archangel of mercy. Therefore, he is said to be friendly, asking God for mercy for humans and is said to be one of the first who bowed down before Adam.
Armed with a sword from God's armory, he bests Satan in personal combat, wounding his side. Most Jewish teachings interpret the Second Commandment as against the use of "graven images" as visual art. In Christian art , Archangel Michael may be depicted alone or with other angels such as Gabriel. Some depictions with Gabriel date back to the 8th century, e. The widely reproduced image of Our Mother of Perpetual Help , an icon of the Cretan school , depicts Michael on the left carrying the lance and sponge of the crucifixion of Jesus , with Gabriel on the right side of Mary and Jesus.
In many depictions Michael is represented as an angelic warrior, fully armed with helmet, sword, and shield. Constantine felt that Licinius was an agent of Satan, and associated him with the serpent described in the Book of Revelation A similar painting, this time with the Archangel Michael himself slaying a serpent then became a major art piece at the Michaelion and eventually lead to the standard iconography of Archangel Michael as a warrior saint.
In other depictions Michael may be holding a pair of scales in which he weighs the souls of the departed and may hold the book of life as in the Book of Revelation , to show that he takes part in the judgment. In Byzantine art Michael was often shown as a princely court dignitary, rather than a warrior who battled Satan or with scales for weighing souls on the Day of Judgement.
