2016 Gabriel The Messenger of God 2oz Silver Coin:
Gabriel is an angel who serves as the messenger of God to certain people. He is one of the three archangels and is mentioned in both the old and new Testaments of the Bible.
First, in the Old Testament, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his visions. Gabriel is described as, “one who looked like a man,” as interprets Daniel’s visions. He speaks to Daniel while he is sleeping. After Gabriel’s first visit, Daniel becomes tired and sick for days. Gabriel later visits Daniel again providing him with more insight and understanding in an answered prayer.
In the new testament, Gabriel, described as an Angel of the Lord,” first appears to Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. He tells him “Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. And thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth.” After Elizabeth conceived and was six months pregnant, Gabriel appears again.
The Book of Luke states that he was sent from God to Nazareth to visit the virgin married to a man called Joseph. Gabriel said to Mary, “hail, thou art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among woman. Gabriel told Mary she would conceive from The Holy Ghost and the baby will be the Son of God.
Gabriel’s attributes are the Archangel, he is clothed in blue or white, and is seen carrying a lily, a trumpet, a shining lantern, a branch from Paradise, a scroll or a sceptre.
