In Angels 7 we read that there are 4 basic angel groups.  Some believe there are five more groups for a total of
nine.  They refer to the other angel groups as thrones, principalities or rulers, dominions and virtues, powers and
authorities and rulers.  This is based off the following scriptures.

1 Corinthians 2:10  and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every POWER AND
AUTHORITY.

Ephesians 1:21  … seated him (Jesus) at his right hand in the heavenly realm, far above all RULE AND AUTHOR-
ITY, POWER AND DOMINION and every TITLE that can be given.

Ephesians 3:10  His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made
known to the RULERS AND AUTHORITIES in the heavenly realm.

Ephesians 6:12  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the AUTHORITIES, against the
POWERS of the dark world and against the SPIRITUAL FORCES OF EVIL in the heavenly realms.

Based on these scriptures, I can not conclude that there are five more angel groups.  To me, these are general
references that Jesus is above any ruler or evil powers on earth and he is above any angel or powers in the
heavens.

Now, let’s look at Satan.  What kind of angel was he?

Revelations 12:7  Then war broke out in heaven.  MICHAEL AND HIS ANGELS fought against the DRAGON, AND
THE DRAGON AND HIS ANGELS fought back.

Revelations 12:9  …  he (Satan) was hurled to the earth, and HIS ANGELS WITH HIM.

Mathew 25:41  …  you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS.

Based on these scriptures, it appears Satan was on the same level as Archangel Michael.  From Angels 7, we
read that Archangels are in charge of the normal angels.  These scriptures tell us that both Michael and Satan
had their own angels.  Therefore, it appears that MICHAEL AND SATAN (LUCIFER) ARE ARCHANGELS.  It appears
that SATAN IS AN ARCHANGEL.

Next week, we will conclude our study on angels before starting our study on tithing.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
