What are the functions of Archangels?

These are beings that are responsible for the functioning of the universe. They are often seen as the leaders in the angelic hierarchy, holding a higher rank than regular angels. These beings are often depicted with large wings, symbolising their heavenly nature and their role as messengers between the divine and humanity.

They are servants of God that are given responsibility for aspects of existence, such as time, space, or communication.

Their role goes beyond just being messengers, they are seen as guardians, warriors, and leaders in the heavenly realms, ensuring that balance and order are maintained in the universe.

Embrace their presence and tap into their immense power to unlock your true potential. With an Archangel by your side, you can conquer any challenge and achieve the power you desire.
