The best known of all Angels. Their principle service consists in revealing prophecies, knowledge, and understanding of God’s will, which they receive from the higher orders of angels and announce to the lower order (the angels), and through them, to men.
They are said to be slightly larger than Angels.
They have the responsibility to keep the order in the four cardinal points.
Uriel: North – Earth – Peace
Raphael: East – Air – Healing
Michael: South – Fire – Protection
Gabriel: West – Water – Wisdom
According to the Hebrew tradition there are 7 of them but in the bible they only mention 3. They are also called planetary spirits and their leader is Michael.
