The Archangel Gabriel (Hebrew: גַּבְרִיאֵל, Gavriʼel; in Arabic جبريل Yibrīl or جبرائيل Yibrāʼīl; in Latin Gabrielus; Greek ΓαβριήλGavril), is one of the three main archangels within the Jewish, Christian and Islamic religions. גַּבְרִיאֵל – Means: (Hebrew) “strength of God,” “power of God,” or “strength of God.”
Archangel Gabriel Divine Messenger
The one who announced the birth of Jesus Christ and John The Baptist, the one who was sent by God to explain to the prophet Daniel the meaning of his visions and the one who dictated the Qur’an to Muhammad.
His name (“Gebher” in the original Hebrew) has been interpreted in various but similar ways: “Strength of God”, “God is my strength”, “Man of God”, “Hero of God”; or, in the case of his Islamic name “Djibril”, as “The Faithful Spirit”.
Several are also titles that have been given to him to express his functions and the attributes that form his essence: Angel of the Annunciation, Angel of Revelation, Angel of Truth, Angel of Purity, Angel of the Incarnation, Angel of the Resurrection, Angel of Joy, Bearer of Good News, Angel of Consolation, Angel of Mercy.
In the Jewish tradition, there is the belief that Gabriel sits to the left of God and is the governor of Eden; within the current angelology, there are those who maintain that he is the head of the Guardian Angels and, already in a framework of consensus, that it is also he who directs the Angels of Purity, this role originated in the association that has been made of him with the Virgin Mary.
The archangel closest to Humanity
Many experts on the subject of angels have argued that Gabriel is the archangel closest to Humanity by his role as Divine Messenger, which is why he has been called “Chief Ambassador to Humanity”. Also linked to his role as a communicator, it has been suggested that Gabriel is responsible for a specific type of management in human/angel, human/nature and human/human relationships.
Within modern esotericism, Gabriel is considered to be the archangel of emotions, fertility, creativity and the arts, as well as the angel of purity, birth, resurrection, revelations and all the other roles that have been attributed to him within the framework of Christianity.
