   Here is a copy of a brief study I have done.  I feel that I should
   share this with you at this time, even though it is not complete
   (maybe it is).

   Obviously some formatting was lost bringing it from Windows to Unix,
   such as italics and it appears all my paragraphs are 1 line of text
   according to Unix...which will make it very difficult to reply to if
   you try to include the text.

   Anyway, I hope someone will enjoy this.

   "All three major religions of the Western world, Christianity,
   Judaism, and Islam, as well as virtually all of the world's other
   systems of religious belief, include celestials in their cosmologies.
   Their scriptures all contain references to angelic interventions."

   "Angels, like people, belong to families or clans.  Many names have
   been given to them, but in the opinion of a number of angel
   historians, the most familiar can be arranged in three categories, or
   spheres, starting at the top with those closest to God, and moving
   down to those who are connected to the physical world." ...

   "The word 'angel' itself is used both as a generic term to refer to
   all heavenly beings, and as a specific term to refer to the members of
   the third sphere, those closest to the physical.  So, too, the word
   'archangel' is often used as a generic term to refer to all the high
   orders of heavenly beings, although they are in fact but one of the
   higher orders."

   "According to Abigrael, there are four orders within the heavenly
   hosts that particularly concern us now: angels,  archangels,
   principalities,  and thrones." ...

   "While it looks like there is a higher and lower echelon, it's more
   accurate to visualize all these orders in a great circle, with the
   "highest" and the "lowest" holding hands.  For example, seraphim, who
   appear to be closest to the Creator, also serve the God in us."

   In the New Testament celestial beings are grouped into seven ranks:
   angels, archangels, principalities, powers, virtues, dominions, and
   thrones.  Plus, the Old Testament adds cherubim and seraphim, which
   with the other seven ranks, comprise the nine choirs of angels in
   later Christian theology; although the number has generally been fixed
   at seven.  The angels receiving the most attention and veneration were
   the four angels mentioned in the O.T. and the Apocrypha.

   The Spiritual Hierarchy - The 9 orders of angelic beings 
   (1 being the highest order)

   The First Sphere -- angels who serve as heavenly counselors         
   1 - SERAPHIM    2 - CHERUBIM   3 - THRONES                          

   The Second Sphere -- angels who work as heavenly governors 
   4 - DOMINIONS   5 - VIRTUES    6 - POWERS

   The Third Sphere -- angels who function as heavenly messengers 


   "The highest order of the highest hierarchy are the seraphim, the
   celestial beings said to surround the throne of God, singing the music
   of the spheres, and regulating the movement of the heavens as it
   emanates from God."


   "Beyond the thrones are the cherubim.  They are the guardians of
   light, and of the stars.  Remote from your plane of reality, still
   their light touches your lives, the divine light that they filter down
   from Heaven."

   -- Lucifer (Satan/Devil) is known as the 'angel of light, whom God's
   light shown through' -- before his 'sin against God'.


   "The first order in the third sphere is the thrones.  They are the
   companion angels of the planets.  At this time in your history it is
   important for you to be aware of the particular throne, the Earth
   Angel, who is guardian of your world." -- [ Lady Gaia ]


   "The dominions are the heavenly beings who govern the activities of
   all the angelic groups lower than they are.  Divine bureaucrats, they
   also serve to integrate the spiritual and the material worlds.
   Although they take their orders from God, and rarely contact
   individuals, their work is connected to your reality."


   "Beyond the powers are another group of beings, the virtues. They are
   of particular importance to you now because they are able to beam out
   massive levels of divine energy.  As more groups of you learn to work
   with the virtues, their will be a greater infusion of spiritual energy
   available on your planet."


   "The first order of the second sphere are those beings who have been
   known as powers.  They are the bearers of the conscience of all of
   humanity, the keepers of your collective history.  The angels of birth
   and death are in this category.  They are able to draw down and hold
   the energy of the divine plan the same way trees draw down the energy
   of the Sun.  In this way, the powers can send all of you a vision of a
   world spiritual network.  Just as you have a heart, liver, kidneys,
   and other organs in your body, all of the worlds religions are
   different organs in the emerging spiritual body of this planet." --
   For example, The Bahai Faith.


   "Beyond the group of archangels are the principalities.  They are the
   guardian angels of all large groups, from cities and nations to recent
   human creations such as multi-national corporations.  These might more
   accurately now be called integrating angels.  There are many of these
   beings involved with your planet.... one particular integrating angel
   who carries the pattern of a unified global order in its heart."


   "Beyond the angels are the beings you are used to calling the
   archangels.  But we suggest that you call them overlighting angels,
   since they tend the larger arenas of human endeavor.  These beings are
   from a different family from the angels.  There are many different
   kinds of overlighting angels in this larger family.  The four you are
   most familiar with are Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel."


   They are the ones who are closest to humanity, the ones most concerned
   with human affairs.  Within the category of angels, there are many
   different kinds, with different functions.. ..The ones that you know
   best....are the guardian angels.  Because of shifts in their functions
   and your consciousness, it is useful to think of these celestial
   beings as companion angels.  As you enter a time of increased light
   and love  on the planet, they will not need to guard you, but rather
   will be your guides to greater and greater consciousness." -- This can
   be related directly to the transformation of the Earth into the
   Galactic  Federation, with the Earth entering the photon belt,
   transmuting us into the Fourth Dimension.  According to the Galactic
   Federation, we will be assisted during this time both by our own
   angelic hierarchy (above) and by mass landings of Humans from the
   Sirius star cluster.


   MICHAEL (Archangel): 	Who is like God?

   "Whose name is a question -- 'Who is like God?' -- is surely the best
   known of the overlighting archangels.  Michael is acknowledged by all
   three Western sacred traditions.  He is believed to appeared to Moses
   as the fire in the burning bush, and to have rescued Daniel and his
   friends from the lions' den.  To Christians, he's the angel who
   informed Mary of her approaching death.  Islamic lore tells us that
   his wings are the color of 'green emerald and are covered with saffron
   hairs, each of them containing a million faces and mouths and as many
   tongues which, in a million dialects, implore the pardon of Allah.'
   The Koran also paints the touching image of the cherubim being formed
   from the tears of Michael."

   "In the Dead Sea Scrolls Michael emerges as the 'Prince of Light'
   fighting a war against the Sons of Darkness in which he leads the
   angelic battle against the legion of the fallen angel, Belial.  Most
   recently, in 1950, Pope Pius XII declared Michael to be the patron of
   all policemen."

   Michael is the protector of the Christian Church, guardian angel of
   Israel, and commander-in-chief of God's angel armies.  He led them
   during a war in heaven in which Satan and his fallen angels were
   driven out of the clouds.  In Moslem lure, Michael is described as
   having hairs of saffron, wings of green topaz and a million faces,
   each face with a million eyes, each eye shedding 70,000 tears.  Even
   though he lives in the seventh heaven.

   Christian art and iconography shows Michael with a sword or with a
   scale weighing the souls of the dead.  His feast day is September 29.

   [ Washta:...The most important for all of you is Archangel Michael,
   who sits with Metatron and many others on the councils that control
   your   planet and its many dimensions.  Archangel Michael guides the
   life energies down through the eight great dimensions to Earth, so
   that planet Earth can have a living biosphere...the Spiritual
   Hierarchy has appointed archangels Michael and Gabriel as the two
   official overseers to coordinate with the Sirians under the auspices
   of the Galactic Federation... Archangel Michael and Gabriel are more
   of an interdimensional angelic form and not attached to the physical
   energy  of a specific solar system and planet, so they cooperate with
   the Time Lords who control physical reality (matter). ]

   [ On the question of Archangel Michael's "lost war in heaven;"
   Washta:...This relates historically to the original creation.  In this
   physical creation, you see, there was established one basic concept.
   It was the idea that a great darkness would exist, from which would
   eventually come a great celestial light.  That is why in the creation
   stories from many sources, including the Christian Bible, there is
   darkness indicated in the very beginning. -- For the purpose of this
   creation was to prove that darkness is not as great as light.
   Archangel Michael was given the divine task of acting as the chief
   intermediary between the Time Lords, who were given instructions by
   the Supreme Creative Force on how to create this present physical
   creation, and the dark force that was created to be the supreme test
   for this creation.  Archangel Michael therefore set out to aid in
   putting the   eight dimensions together and to make sure that all the
   various  dimensional angelic and archangelic forces were put in the
   proper pla- ces.  In order to create this pattern for the divine plan,
   it was necessary to create a being within that darkness.  Hence, the
   Archangel Michael established the energies that would create a being
   of darkness, as called for under the divine plan.  That is what the
   so-called "war  in heaven" refers to.  This being of darkness was
   created by God's plan so that eventually the dark energy patterns
   could be transformed back  to light after many physical lifetimes
   lived on planet Earth.  This transformation would eventually lead to a
   great series of immortals living in light.  This is what Michael's
   energy patterns, and all the  stories about him, are about. ]

   [ On the question of 'identity of the dark force'; Washta:...This
   energy was created by him as part of the divine plan which he was
   given permission to do.  He will be merging these two energies of
   light and  dark as part of the upcoming ascension process .  That is
   why the Age  of Light has been forecast by many Sirians and others in
   the Galactic  Federation who are Time Keepers.  We understand the
   energy patterns that now surrounds this physical creation of bringing
   dark into light... This [does not have] a name that is recognizable in
   itself to humans on your planet, since many different names for it
   have been given, such as Satan, the devil, etc.  However, know that
   this name will be given to humans when the process of the landings
   [Sirian] occur, for Archangel Michael will make a formal announcement
   of what is occurring; and he will explain what the time patterns are
   that will allow him to re-emerge and create the great light in your
   galaxy. ]

   GABRIEL (Archangel):	God is my strength!

   "Whose name means -- 'God is my strength' -- seems to be our most
   frequent visitor from the higher realms.  He astonished Mary, and her
   cousin Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, with the pronouncements
   concerning the births of their respective sons. To the followers of
   Islam, Gabriel is the Spirit of Truth who dictated the Koran to
   Mohammed.  In Jewish legend it was Gabriel who parted the waters of
   the Red Sea so that the Hebrews could escape from the Pharaoh's

   "According to court testimony of the time, it was Gabriel who came to
   Joan of Arc and inspired her to go to the aid of the dauphin (the
   eldest son of the king of France).  Gabriel's apparent ongoing
   interest in this planet is most probably due to his function as
   heavenly awakener, the angel of vibratory transformation."

   ^...Sitting on God's left hand, Gabriel is said to be the angel that
   destroyed perverted Sodom...served as God's treasurer, and will blow
   the final horn at doomsday.^

   Gabriel in Hebrew means 'man of God', and is seen as God's messenger.
   Described as a human figure with long hair and multi-colored wings and
   often seen holding a scepter or lily.  Gabriel's feast day is March
   24. He was declared on January 12, 1951, by Pope Pius XII, the patron
   of those involved in electronic communications, which illustrates
   Gabriel's function as a messenger.

   [ Washta:...Then you have Archangel Gabriel, who is the angel in
   charge of many dimensions -- namely, the 3rd, 4th, and,
   archangels   Michael and Gabriel are now involved in the process of
   bringing in the energies of the new and glorious galactic human
   consciousness, and the civilization that these galactic humans will
   reside in. ]

   RAPHAEL (Archangel): God has healed!

   "Raphael is perhaps the most endearing of all the angels, and the one
   most frequently depicted in Western art.  His image is featured on the
   canvases of such masters as Botticelli, Titian, and Rembrandt.  His
   name means -- "God has Healed."  Not only does he appear to be the
   high archangel charged with healing the Earth, but according to the
   Zohar, 'the Earth furnishes an abode for man, whom Raphael also heals
   of his maladies'."

   ^Raphael is the travelers guide, guardian of youth...The ruler of the
   second heaven shows up in Christian paintings carrying a pilgrim's
   stick, a wallet and a fish.  The poet Milton has Raphael eating supper
   with Adam and Eve in Eden.^

   "Indeed, Raphael's career seems to be peppered with medical missions.
   He healed the pain of circumcision for Abraham as the old man had not
   had the procedure done when he was young.  Raphael was then sent by
   God to cure poor Jacob's thigh after he'd been roughed up by Samael.
   And  it's also claimed that Raphael gave Noah a much-prized 'medical
   book' after the flood." the great temple in Jerusalem, Raphael
   personally delivered the gift of a magic ring with the power to subdue
   all demons.  It was with this 'slave labor' that the Hebrew king
   completed the construction."

   "Raphael has also been called 'a guide in hell,' which after all is
   where healing is needed the most."

   URIEL (Archangel): Fire of God!

   "Uriel's name means -- "Fire of God," -- and he is ranked variously as
   a seraph, cherub, regent of the Sun, flame of God, presider over Hades
   and, in his best-known role, as the Archangel of Salvation.  Like
   Metatron, Uriel is said to be one of the angels of the Presence, a
   most high posting since only the highest voltage angels can sustain
   the presence of God."

   "Uriel is thought to have been "the spirit who stood at the gate of
   the lost Eden with the fiery sword."  The Book of Enoch tells us that
   it   was Uriel who was sent by God to warn Noah of the impending
   flood, and elsewhere it is written that he disclosed the mysteries of
   the heavenly arcana to Ezra, and that he also led Abraham out of Ur in
   the Chaldean region."

   "Some have claimed that the divine art of alchemy was brought down to
   Earth by Uriel, and that it was also this angel who gave the Kabbalah,
   the Hebrew mystic tradition, to humankind.  John Milton describes
   Uriel as the 'sharpest sighted spirit of all in Heaven'. The angel who
   showed up to berate Moses for neglecting to circumcise his own son
   Gershom.   Sharp eyes indeed!"

   ^Uriel is associated by legend with earthquakes, storms, erupting
   volcanoes and such has a big part in Milton's "Paradise Lost."  There,
   as governor of the sun, he is tricked by Satan, disguised as a young
   angel, into giving directions to earth, and from there to Eden.  Once
   there, tempting Satan sought out Eve's ear.^

   [ Washta:...There are many others, such as Raphael and Uriel, who sit
   above in the 4th and 5th dimensions to aid Gabriel in this ascension
   process.  They also have access to the 6th and 7th dimensions to
   assist Archangel Michael with the special life ene rgies being brought
   through the Time Lords, down to the 8th and 7th dimensions. ]

   METATRON (Cherubim): One who occupies the throne next to the Divine

   "In the world of Jewish mystics, came to hold the rank of the highest
   of the angels despite his not being mentioned in the Scriptures.  The
   meaning of his name has never been satisfactorily explained although
   one interpretation of it is "one who occupies the throne next to the
   Divine throne."  It could also be derived from the Latin 'metator', a
   guide or measurer."

   "In a number of traditional sources, Metatron is said to have been the
   prophet Enoch, who was taken up to Heaven and transformed into an
   angel of fire, with thirty-six pairs of wings, to continue his days as
   a celestial scribe.  Metatron has also been identified as the
   Liberating Angel and the one who wrestled with Jacob; the one who
   stayed Abraham's hand from sacrificing his son Isaac; and the one who
   led the Hebrews   through the forty years in the wilderness.  In
   certain schools of mysticism, Metatron, said to be the tallest of all
   the heavenly beings, became known as Lesser YHWH.  In Hebrew, the
   letters 'LHWH' stand for  the most sacred and unpronounceable name of

   "As God has many names, so, too, Metatron was thought to have many
   names, the use of which was believed to offer the user protection and
   access to this great angel's powers.  Yahoel, Yofiel, Surya, and Lad
   are just a few of his other names."

   ^Sitting beside God, Metatron, the throne angel with 72 names, records
   Israel's good and bad deeds.  One mystic said Metatron carries Jewish
   prayers up through 900 heavens to God.^

   [ Metatron is Head of the Sirian Central Sun Council ]
