Once upon an eternity
our intelligent comprehension
above vast galaxies
visited using special glass
in an angelic holy dimension
a Father named his only son
(this perfect spirit reflection)
‘Michael’ meaning: Who Is Like God?
existing in exquisite mirrored perfection.
The ‘Almighty’ plus this ‘Mighty’ One–
‘the first-born of creation’
through him created all else to further come
by means of his Father’s righteous holy education.
Occurrence first of his name
‘Daniel’ the prophet did mention
for us to be future edified
of the utmost power
of his singular distinction and position:
“one of the foremost princes”;
“the prince of Daniel’s people,”
“the great prince who is standing in behalf
of the sons of Daniel’s people”
who aided a lesser angel opposed
by “the prince of the royal realm of Persia.”
this spirit Michael
led a rather nervous sum
of Israelite slaves composed
as by ‘fire’ and ‘cloud’
defying a lesser ‘god’s’ prowess
through a wilderness,
into the Red Sea
where army Egyptian
by Pharaoh’s anger inspired
because of a violent self-defeating inertia.
“Michael the archangel had a difference
with the Devil
and was disputing about Moses’ body.”
Yet, to God ‘Almighty’ he deferred
to rectify this ungainly disturbance
his once holy brother’s arrogance
this “chief angel,”
or “principal angel”
whom God designated
head of the angelic host
refuses to arrogantly gloat or boast.
He is the image of his Father Supreme.
And in this age
“a time of distress
such as has not been made to occur since there came to be a nation”
A time our world is tragically seeing
Michael will again stand up,
in his now capacity as king
to vindicate His Father’s Name:
A privilege special indeed!
Jesus’ heavenly name Michael
in emphasis meaning:
‘Who Is Like God?”
A name to eventually
every living being
“I saw heaven opened, and look! a white horse.
And the one seated on it is called Faithful and True,
and he judges and carries on war in righteousness.”
In this seat
a loving Father
his faithful obedient Son
And in loyalty
This He Will Do.
Tell me a story in poetry about how a given name influenced a life.
