Angel Lore: part 4 by Toi Thomas #OurAuthorGang

From Pinterst via
I'm actually a bird.
Today, in part 4 of my Angel Lore series, I’ll be sharing more angel knowledge with you from P – T, as I work my way through the alphabet (see part ONE, part TWO, and part THREE). But first…

In a series like this, questions of faith, belief, and religious preference are always lingering in the background. While I make no attempts to hide my faith, my interest in angels goes beyond that. I have too many questions and inquiries about the world to not reach out. My study of angel lore is just one way for me to cope with and understand the world and all its peoples. I appreciate other faiths and their ideas, or lack thereof, concerning angels because it’s all part of the process to gain knowledge, and possibly enlightenment.

On to the list…

Powers are said to have been the first angels God created, though not the highest in the angelic hierarchy. They are said to be the protectors against demonic forces.

I got nothing for ‘Q’. Perhaps, think about how angels move around so quietly; no one sees or hears them. đŸ˜‰

How many angels have a name that begins with the letter ‘R’? A lot. So, I give you one random angel, Raguel. While briefly shunned by the Roman church in 745AD, this “friend of God” is said to watch over the good behavior of other angels.

Shaitans are kind of like demons, derived from ancient Hebrew and Arabic mythologies. It is said that when Muhammad encountered a shaitan, he read to it from the Koran in hopes that it would reconcile with God.

Thrones are probably the most fascinating angels I’ve learned about. Said to be the ones who carry out God’s decisions or justice, these creatures are described as fiery wheels, constantly in motion.

Well, that's all I have for today. Stick around this blog so you don't miss part 5 down the road.


Be sure to check out my Eternal Curse Series.

Book 1:
Giovanni is a creature out of time. Mira is a doctor trying to classify him. Beauty and the Beast meet Jekyll and Hyde in this paranormal tale with romantic and biblical influences.


Book 2:
A tale for fathers, sons, and daughters, this epic saga touches the past and future. The story of Giovanni will bring you to tears as loss and duty blur the lines of hope for what is to come.

The Eternal Curse series was my first book and series I ever wrote and to know that someone liked it meant the world to me. It's currently unavailable pending a rewrite in order to align it with new developments in the 3rd installment. If you'd like to read the first two books and offer me your feedback, please consider joining my email list to receive a free digital copy.

I didn't realize there were so many types of angels. I need to pay closer attention to that when reading my Bible.

Another great post, Toi! My favorite is Archangel Raphael...I guess because he is the angel of healing and medicine.

Did you forget that Samuel (an angel) was fallen and becomes Satan? Do are fallen angels beyond the scope here?

Aside from angels, I think music is another subject that crosses racial, religious, and cultural lines. Do you agree? What other subjects do this as well? Are you enjoying this series? It's almost over.

I'm really enjoying your posts about Angels, and I'm looking forward to your posts about music :)
Edit
 
I hope the music topic goes over well.
