Gabriel is a Celestial Angelic Being within the Angelic Order known as the Archangels. Jewish tradition (including the non-canonical book of Enoch) identifies Gabriel as one of seven archangels, the Bible does not actually state that Gabriel is an archangel. Yet Gabriel clearly has a high position among the angels since his name is mentioned in God’s Word along with Lucifer and Michael. His name means “The Strength of God” and his deeds are recorded in the Jewish scriptures, where he aided the Prophet Daniel in the interpretation of his dreams.
The Archangel Gabriel appears as a mature male with long silver hair. Muscular in form and clothed in white/silver robe which shines in the light. Some say he also has a silver crescent ornament on his brow.
The Jews venerated Gabriel as the angel of judgment, and in both Jewish and Christian tradition he is one of the seven archangels. Gabriel is also known to Moslems, who believe him to be the angel who served as the mouthpiece of God in dictating the Koran to Mohammed.
Is probably most well-known for the Annunciation where he told Mary of the impending birth of Christ. Generally Gabriel is seen as a slightly more benevolent spirit than his ally Michael. He was also the messenger that brought news of the coming birth of John the Baptist and appeared to Zacharias.
It is also told that he was the angel responsible for the downfall of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah as well as other places of sin throughout the Old Testament although he is never named there as such.
“Within all of the legends of birthing, Gabriel has been accredited as the angel who selects souls from heaven to be birthed into the material world and spends the nine months as the child is being developed informing the new person of what he or she will need to know on Earth, only to silence the child before birth by pressing his finger onto the child’s lips, thus producing the cleft below a person’s nose. In the first role, Gabriel guides hopeful parents toward child conception or through the process of adopting a child.
Gabriel gives strength and courage to these parents, and helps moms-to-be stay centered in blissful faith to create the best atmosphere for their baby. In the second role, the archangel helps anyone whose life purpose involves art or communication. Call upon Gabriel for help, guidance, and agenting if you’re an actor, artist, author, dancer, journalist, model, musician, reporter, singer, songwriter, teacher, or do anything involving delivering spiritual messages. Gabriel will open doors to help you express your talent in a big way. The archangel also acts as a coach, inspiring and motivating artists and communicators, and helping them to overcome fear and procrastination.
Gabriel has long been known as a powerful and strong archangel, and those who call upon her will find themselves pushed into action that leads to beneficial results. Gabriel is definitely an archangel of action. Besides births however, Gabriel is also the angel who came before Daniel and told him of the future as well as the angel responsible for strengthening Christ prior to the Crucifixion.”
