5 things to know about Angels and Legion

Filed under: Spirit 
Many who’ve come close to knowing me, know I have an affinity to the spiritual.

I have to admit when I first saw the trailers for the movie Legion I was a bit taken back.
I was dying to look back at my old studies of Angels and all that I remembered..
Then my brother emailed me concerning the trailer and the films implications.

And this is how it went..

(Q.) so who is Michael?


Michael is an ArcAngel.. higher in rank than other angels.. Known as the the Lord of The Way.

Michael.. was charged to be the sole ArcAngel given rank high enough to do battle with the legions and of Lucifer himself, who lost his name and was given satan as a remembrance of the fall…

And only the Christ and the Creator of all may ultimately
defeat satan’s rulers, powers and principalities..

Also important to note.. that satan although removed from rank did not lose any of his stature in power or knowledge or beauty for that matter.. its written that he was as high ranked [being the holder of the light] as the Seriphim who are above the Cheribum who are above the ArcAngels..

*See “All The Angels In The Bible” by Herbert Lockyear…
*Also look at the Edgar Cayce readings regarding such..

(Q.) isn’t Legion the another name for Satan?

Actually.. thats from a movie.. the actual account was taken from
scripture when a demon possessed individual was asked of the entity
to reveal itself… Legion is many, which is its true meaning..

Mark 5:9
Then He asked him, “What is your name?” And he answered, saying,
“My name is Legion; for we are many.”

Obviously “many” had decided to attach themselves to this person.

When the fall occurred many fell also, or legions fell..

For the Sons of God looked upon the daughters of man and
saw that they were fair, and took them wives…

*See ancient texts from the Apocrypha

This was only part of the fall, but is most noted of the written texts..

The actual fall according to E.C. readings, Lucifer was pissed and jealous that man was higher than the angels and that he & angels were to serve man..

*Is it not written that ye are gods?

“Psalm 82:6
I said, “You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High.”

Who in turn, along-side served The Lord our Creator.

(Q.) Why are the Angels the bad guys and look like demons


Angels/demons may appear before humans in any form they choose to manifest.

And then, again, poetic license on the part of the creators of the film..

It would be best if I’d seen the film to speculate on it in its entirety.

But to return to the question.. demons are what happens to lower angels who aligned with satan and decided to serve him. More than likely after the fall the wrath of tyranny began so they are held there.

(Q.) Is Michael the Fallen Angel?

No Michael is most certainly not the fallen or among them..

(Q.) His entrance sure does look like he is. And if he is, then humanity’s only champion is Lucifer?

Again poetic license on the part of the creators of this film.

(Q.)If God has sent them to destroy humanity, then isn’t it that humanity is the bad guy?

# 2 Kings 19:35
[ Sennacherib’s Defeat and Death ] And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead.

There is no writing anywhere that suggests that The Lord was sending angels to destroy man. But it would be an extremely easy defeat. Nor would it seem correct that He would send demons. Which obviously brings the confusion you mention.

Even in the last, the book of revelation, there is an extreme
mis-interpretation of whats being given.

The revelation was not prophecy of the end of days, but a map of sequential visualized events that occur in the spiritual centers of the body while one ascends through in meditation to get to the holy of holies and return to The Creator.

As to the bad guy, There is only One Creator who created all.. And everything is part of the Creator.

If we continue to deny our birthright, it is the same as aligning with
rebellion and the prince of this world. So the lessons continue until we get it right.


The unborn baby being the only hope for humanity reminds me of the
Seventh Sign with Demi Moore.

I agree they blatantly stole that metaphor from that particular movie.

These movies are meant to subvert God and instill in the audience a sense of dislike of God rather than step back and see that it is we who have fallen from His grace.

I’ve no doubt there is an alternative motive driving these types of
movies beyond mere entertainment.

I will see it as research into Hollywood’s next attempt at culling the
masses into group think.

I personally believe it goes beyond Hollywood’s pathetic think-tank.

I’m no theologian by any means, but I know that movies are used to
“teach us” what to think.

I’ve wanted to consider myself a theologian, but prefer to believe in the experience of application, rather than the study of theory speculation & application.

Better to know because you experienced it, than to say you know because you read/watched/heard it.

Care to chime in? Would love your take on the matter.
