Where in the Bible is Archangel Michael called a protector?
Michael is called a protector in three books in the Bible, Jude, Revelation, and Daniel. Daniel 10:13 implies that the archangel Michael came to protect him against the prince of Persia, who is the Devil. Daniel 10 talks about the prayer of the prophet regarding the future of the people. So, it is believed that God sent an angel with the message, but the prince of Persia, who is the fallen angel, Satan, destructed the angel so that he can influence the war in Persia. However, Archangel Michael showed up to protect the angel and the message. Although Angel Michael is mentioned in the book of Jude, his role is to emphasize how submissive he is to God, even with all the powers he has.
In the book of Revelations 12:7, we are informed that Archangel Michael, together with his angels, is fighting with the Dragon and his angels.
It is believed that this fight is a fight over the souls of human beings, and Archangel Michael fights to protect each soul.
