But when you see Gabriel come down, something major on the road. Gabriel announced the first coming of Jesus; He will announce the second coming of Jesus. He will sound the trumpet, the dead in Christ shall rise. Gabriel, the great Archangel of God...
Michael and Gabriel are different names for Christ; it is Christ revealing Himself in different forms.
Luke 1: 11: And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
Luke 1: 19: And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.
Gabriel came to Zacharias and discerned the thoughts and intents of his heart; this was the Word (Christ) Himself in the form of Gabriel proving Himself to be the Word in an angelic form: Hebrews 4: 12: For the word of God 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.
Zacharias saw Gabriel standing on the right side of the altar of incense that was before the veil before one entered the Holy of Holies; Gabriel then said to Zacharias that He Himself stands in the presence of God; so this great Archangel is connected with God, especially with the right hand of God.
Hebrews 10: 12: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Hebrews 12: 2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
“Gabriel” means in Hebrew, “Man of God”. Hebrews 10: 12 shows that the “man” Jesus overcame in Gethsemane and offered Himself as our sacrifice and is now setting at the right hand of God. Jesus is the Son of God who as the “Son of Man” overcame for us and is now at the right hand of the Father, so He and Gabriel are therefore one and the same.
1 Thessalonians 4: 16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
There is only one Chief Angel (or Archangel) and that is Jesus Christ Himself, so when we speak of Gabriel the Archangel or Michael the Archangel, we are speaking about Christ in His different forms of expression. It is the Lord Himself descending with the Voice of the Archangel which is the Voice of the Resurrection, just as Jesus called Lazarus back to life in John 11; so Gabriel is that Archangel whom the prophet said would announce the second coming of Christ, viz: He is announcing His own coming in Word form.
Jude: 9: Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
Michael is Christ in a form that is different to the form of Gabriel, just as Christ in the form of the Son of Man (Jesus in flesh) could die on the cross, but as the Son of God (the Holy Spirit) He could not die on the cross because the Spirit had to put on flesh first.
Michael is called the “Archangel” who contended with Satan concerning the body of Moses. Michael then changed His office and spoke as the Creator (the ultimate Authority) to show Satan that there are some things in the sovereignty of God that are not for Satan to know anything about.
Daniel 10: 10 - 13: And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands. And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
Again, in Daniel 10, there is a contention (like there was in Jude :9), a battle between Satan (the prince of Persia) and the Angel (Gabriel). The Angel in the form of Gabriel could not prevail over the prince of Persia, so Gabriel changed His form into Michael who is the warring Angel of the Jews, and in this form He prevailed because it was Michael who defeated Lucifer in Heaven (Revelation 12: 7 - 9), so if Lucifer could not prevail against Michael in Heaven, then Satan will not prevail over Michael on earth.
