Who are the Biblical Angels? – A Critical Perspective, (#9)


This will be the 9th paper in this series and we will dwell on the subject of the presence of Yahweh’s manifestations and attributes among His people, Israel. The greater part of churchianity are under the delusion that Almighty Yahweh is a “trinity” of three different “persons”. Rather, Yahweh is One Almighty in several manifestations! It is true that Yahweh includes Father, Son and Holy Spirit as three of His manifestations, but there are many more manifestations and attributes than just these three. Isaiah 7:14 & 9:6 state:

Therefore Yahweh himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel .... For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty ElH410, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Next, at Acts 7:30-33 we observe that Yahweh Almighty manifested Himself as “a flame of fire” thusly:

30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sinai an angel of Yahweh in a flame of fire in a bush. 31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of Yahweh came unto him, 32Saying, I am the Almighty of thy fathers, the Almighty of Abraham, and the Almighty of Isaac, and the Almighty of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. 33 Then said Yahweh to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.”

From the context of this passage the “angel of Yahweh” was either a mouthpiece for Yahweh, or Yahweh Himself. However, the “fire” was definitely one of the manifestations of Almighty Yahweh. As one can clearly see, we now have four manifestations of Yahweh; not just three! Take note of this, as there are many places in the KJV that translate this as “the angel of god” or “the angel of the Lord”. Therefore, the context of each passage using these phrases must be taken into consideration, whether it be an angel or Yahweh Himself. Hence, it is paramount that we make every effort to completely comprehend our subject thoroughly!

The passages quoted above form part of the Word of Yahweh, and the Word of Yahweh is another one of His powerful manifestations! (Hebrews 4:12-13)”

12 For the word of Yahweh is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do [i.e., ‘to whom we have to give account’, Twentieth Century New Testament].”

Actually, quoting Yahweh’s Word is our most powerful weapon, and we should quote it more often!

Yet another important manifestation of Almighty Yahweh is found at Exodus 14:18-20:

18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. 19And the angel of the Almighty, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.”

From The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible, vol. 4, p. 794 we read on this subject (and it will be slightly edited):

PILLAR OF FIRE AND OF CLOUD: During the wilderness wanderings, Israel was guided on her way by the phenomenon of the pillar ... of fire and of cloud (Exod. 14:24). The complete expression occurs only once, but the separate expressions occur several times as ‘pillar of fire’ (Exod. 13:21-22; Num. 14:14; Neh. 9:12, 19) and ‘pillar of cloud’ (... Exod. 14:19; Num 14:14 ... Ps. 99:7). When Israel left Succoth and reached the edge of the wilderness, Yahweh went before them ‘by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light’ (Exod 13:21). Thereafter, the pillar guided and protected Israel as she journeyed. Normally, the cloud by day and the fire by night moved in front of Israel to point the way. As Israel left Egypt, however, the cloud moved to the rear to provide protection from the Egyptians (Exod. 14:19-20, 24). There are other references to ‘pillar of cloud’ (or cloudy pillar) descending and standing at the door of the tent of meeting when Moses entered the tent (Exod. 33:7-9). Possibly the ‘cloud’ that came down at Sinai when Moses spoke with the Almighty was the same pillar of cloud (Exod. 34:5). When Miriam and Aaron murmured against Moses, Yahweh came down in the pillar of cloud and stood at the door of the tent of meeting to confirm Moses’ authority (Num. 12:5 ff.). As the time of Moses’ death approached, Joshua [i.e., Yahshua] was called to the tent of meeting where Yahweh appeared in the pillar of cloud to give him a charge as Moses’ successor (Deut. 31:15). In these latter instances the pillar of cloud was the place of divine revelation.

The explanation of this phenomenon is not easy. The association of the term ‘cloud’ with the Almighty is very frequent in the OT. In some of the above passages the term ‘cloud’ may mean ‘pillar of cloud’ (Exod 34:5) although the presence of Yahweh often is denoted by a theophany of cloud and glory. Perhaps there are two different phenomena – the guiding cloud and the cloud of the divine presence ....”

I would highly recommend that the reader research and validate each and every Biblical reference pointed out by The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible.

Inasmuch as a “pillar” or a “cloud” are manifestations of Almighty Yahweh in the flesh, we shouldn’t be surprised when we read the following at Acts 1:9:

And when he [Christ] had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloudG3507 received him out of their sight.”

Strong’s #G3507, “Meaning: 1) a cloud 1a) used of the cloud which led the Israelites in the wilderness.” But don’t stop here, as this is not the end of the story. We read at vv. 10 & 11, thusly:

10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men [evidently angels] stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Yahshua, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”

Evidently when Christ returns at His Second advent, He will descend from this same cloud with the same two men by His side, who will introduce Him to His Kingdom people wheresoever they might be found. But many of His Kingdom people will be mistakenly angry with Him, shaking their fist at Him, and claiming that He is the “antichrist!” (or as I call him, “the super-duper-pooper anti-christ.”)

At Genesis 1:31 we find another significant manifestation of Almighty Yahweh, for He is Flawless in every way, without the slightest tinge of iniquity, or an author of sin:

And the Almighty saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good ....”

In other words, among other things, Yahweh did not create any unclean, nonwhite races, or racial mixtures of any kinds (yes, plural, like at Deut. 22:9)!

H3610 ... kil´ayim,kil-ah´-yim, Dual of H3608 in the original sense of separation; twoheterogeneities:KJV renderings:divers seeds (-e kinds), mingled (seed).”

To demonstrate that Almighty Yahweh is flawless in all of His attributes, I will site James 1:17 thusly:

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

Further, at Numbers 29:19-21 we read:

19 The Almighty is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? 20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. 21 He hath not beheld iniquity [i.e., racial impurity] in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: Yahweh his Almighty is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.”

To show this manifestation of perfection with Almighty Yahweh, I will cite Isaiah 6:3:

And one cried unto another, and said, HolyH6918, holyH6918, holyH6918, is Yahweh of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

And this is not referring to any “trinity”, but rather is far and away from such a pagan concept!

H6918 ... qâdôsh qâdôsh, kaw-doshe´,kaw-doshe´ from H6942; sacred (ceremonially or morally); (as noun) God (by eminence), an angel, a saint, a sanctuary:– KJV renderings:holy (One), saint.”

Another manifestation of Yahweh is His “Glory” found at Exodus 33:16-23, which is somewhat self explanatory:

16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth. 17 And Yahweh said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. 18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. 19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of Yahweh before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. 20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21 And Yahweh said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: 22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: 23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.”

Evidently Moses absorbed some of Yahweh’s “Glory” while he was on Mt. Sinai with Him, as at Exodus 34:29-30 we read:

29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. 30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.”

Just how long Moses’ face continued to shine we are not informed, but we cannot deny that Yahweh’s “Glory” is one of His several manifestations! There is one verse from the second passage above which is definitely worth repeating! That being Exodus 33:16, which proves beyond all doubt that the twelve tribes of Israel are not to be integrated with any nonwhite or mixed race, but rather be segregated from them, which would include Gen. 6:1-4, where some of Yahweh’s angels mixed with the daughters of Adam:

16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.”

What is there about this verse that we don’t seem to understand? This same significant fact is enforced at Amos 3:2 thusly:“You [Israel] only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.”

Ditto, Deuteronomy 7-6:“For thou art an holy people unto Yahweh thy Almighty: Yahweh thy Almighty hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”

Therefore, one of Yahweh’s manifestations or attributes is the fact that Yahweh is genetically compatible with Adam-man whom He created, for He was Adam’s Father (Luke 3:38)! Therefore, all of the nonwhite races are outside of, and have absolutely no kinship connection whatsoever with Yahweh’s family! Hence, it is a downright lie to claim that “all men are equal”!

At Isaiah 41:4 and 44:6, plus Rev. 1:17-18 we find another highly important manifestation of Yahweh thusly:

Isaiah 41:4:“Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I Yahweh, the first, and with the last; I am he.

Isaiah 46:6: “Thus saith Yahweh the King of Israel, and his redeemer Yahweh of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no Almighty.”

Revelation 1:17-18: 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

From all of this, it should beginning to be clear that only Yahweh, in His various manifestations has the ability to live forever, both in the darkest past and in the infinite future, and that living forever is one of His greater manifestations! Not only that, but when we White Adamites are resurrected into the Kingdom, we have the promise that we will also inherit these same characteristics for an endless future life! To confirm that this is true, I will cite Psalm 102:24-28:

22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve Yahweh. 23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days. 24 I said, O my Almighty, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations. 25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. 26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed [KJV, Heb. stand]: 27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. 28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.”

This passage cannot be fully understood unless we take Isaiah 34:1-5 into consideration:

1 Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. 2 For the indignation of Yahweh is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. 3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. 4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a fallingfig from the fig tree. 5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea [i.e., Edomite-jews], and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.”

We can now understand Psalm 102:26 declaring:

They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed.”

Therefore, Psalm 102:24-28 is speaking of “the great and terrible day of Yahweh” when the world system, as we now know it, shall be “changed” and “Idumea” (Edomite-jews) and all of the nonwhite races will be a thing of the past, and Yahshua Christ will rule the Israelite nations, and “The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.” It is going to be the Edomite-jews, along with the nonwhite and mixed races who “... shall wax old like a garment ... They shall perish, but thou [White Israel] shalt endure ....”!

This brings us back to the subject of Yahweh’s Glory, which He shows in many ways. But what is Yahweh’s ultimate Glory? It is found at Isaiah 46:8-13 thusly:

8 Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors. 9 Remember the former things of old: for I am the Almighty, and there is none else; I am the Almighty, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: 11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. 12 Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: 13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion [i.e., dispersed Israel nations]for Israel my glory.”

Not only are the White scattered nations of Israel Yahweh’s ultimate Glory (excluding all nonwhite and mixed races), but Yahweh Himself is the ultimate Prophet, which is another one of His manifestations. The Biblical prophets were merely the instruments by which Yahweh’s prophecies are revealed to us (and we only) through His Written Word. In the case of Daniel, an angel (evidently Gabriel, of Dan. 9:21) was sent to him when he was detained three weeks by the prince of Persia (Dan. 10;13), but it was Michael the archangel (Jude 9) who came to his aid. This involved four different beings, (1) Yahweh, (2) Gabriel, (3) Michael), and (4) Daniel.

I will now quote from the 5-volume The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible, vol. 4, p. 217 under the heading “MICHAEL”, in part, where it indicates there were eleven different Michaels mentioned in the Bible, and it will be edited by C.A.E.:

1. Father of Sethur, a spy from the tribe of Asher (Num. 13:13); 2-3. Two persons in the tribe of Gad (1 Chron. 5:13, 14); 4. A descendant of Gershon and great-grandfather of Asaph the singer (1 Chron, 6:40). 5. A high-ranking person of Issachar (1 Chron. 7:3); 6. A citizen of Benjamin (1 Chron. 8:16); 7. A captain over a thousand in Manasseh who joined the fighting men of David (1 Chron. 12:20); 8. A man of Issachar, father of Omri who was an officer under David (1 Chron. 27:18). 9. A prince in Judah who was son of King Jehoshaphat and brother of King Jehoram (2 Chron. 21:2); 10. Father of Zebadiah, a leading man who returned to Jerusalem with Ezra (Ezra 8:8). 11. The main Michael is the archangel (Dan. 10:13, 21; 12:1; Jude 9; Rev 12:7). The Bible also names Gabriel as a high angel (Dan. 8:16; 9:21; Luke 1:19, 26) ... Scripture itself calls Michael ‘the archangel’ (Jude 9 ) and speaks of ‘the archangel’ (1 Thess. 4:16) but never of ‘archangels.’ [However the Old Testament uses the term “chief princes”, of which Michael was said to be but one.]

Daniel distinctly relates Michael to Israel as prince and guardian over the destinies of that nation (Dan. 10:21; 12:1) ... The text shows that God has ‘his angels.’ This is no clear proof that Michael is Christ, as some contend ....”

If in the case of Daniel, as Gabriel was detained for 21 days and Michael had to come to Gabriel’s defense, there must have been quite a disturbance going on with the prince of Persia. Was this “prince of Persia” an angel also? Dan. 10:20 states in part: “Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia ....”

I have presented the evidence in this series the best way I know how, taking extra precaution to get everything right and proper. It is now the responsibility of the reader to research every claim and draw their own conclusions.
