This a page on my site, which I did in 2020. I am being lazy today and posting this. I was amazed how this was given to me. The whole thing flowed, and seems quite logical. I hope it is useful.
24th August 2020
And Wiktionary.org says the word comes
‘From Middle English angel, aungel, ængel, engel, from Anglo-Norman angele, angle and Old English ænġel, enġel, enċġel (“angel, messenger”),… ‘
‘The religious sense of the Greek word first appeared in the Septuagint as a translation of the Hebrew word מַלְאָךְ (malʾāḵ, “messenger”) or יהוהמַלְאָךְ (malʾāḵ YHWH, “messenger of YHWH”).’
I have said before that the English are Angels, as they stem from the Angles who came from what is now Northern Germany. But have you considered that there is a correlation between mathematical angles and angels? No? Well try this.
There are, in essence, 6 types of angles. If you take a circle and divide it thus.
You have two halves and what can be considered a line of reflection. The top will contain the following.
Acute angles; under 90°. Right angles; 90°. Obtuse angles; over 90°.
The bottom half contains the reflex or reflection angles thus.
Reflex acute; under 270°. Reflex right; 90°. Over 270°; Reflex obtuse.
The same applies to angels.
In the heavenly realms there are Acute angels. Wiktionary gives extensive etymology to acute, but includes quick, shrill, sensitive and sharp. These are female angels. They will prod you into action.
Cute is shortened from acute, and can mean “keenly perceptive or discerning, shrewd”. Nowadays it also means attractive.
Then there are Right angels. These are upright, neither going to left or right. These are essentially strong angels, and will fight for right, for what is right.
They are straight, not bent. They will put matters straight. They are sane, and competent. And they sort out tangles, things in a right-tangle. These are male angels.
The last group are the Obtuse angels. These are narrow-minded, boring, dull, and lifeless. They batter, beat and bruise you. They are blunt but not in a good sense. More like a blunt instrument or blunt tool. These are both male and female, but confused about their gender. Or just confused.
These are again all in the heavenly realms, which is why I have coloured the lines blue to represent the sky, or heavens.
The Reflex angels are those on earth. Human beings, made by God and the angels as described. I have coloured these green to represent the earth as covered by green things (although much is missing now with deserts etc).
It should be obvious which is which. It is not to say that there is overlap, but then that is the result of sin. Sin is disobedience, really just not following the guidance given by the Lord God.
Not following His guidance leads to chaos. As Oliver Hardy might say to Stan Laurel ‘Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into.’
As opposed to ‘Well, here’s another mess NICE have gotten me into’. NICE is National Institute for Clinical Excellence. I think their guidance has been confusing. However, I can’t find much online to say that people struggle with it. Perhaps they are just being nice to NICE.
But back to angels. There is other information online which may be useful, but the essence is as I have described.
The Bible only seems to specifically name two good angels. We have Gabriel who delivers messages, such as to Daniel and Mary.
Gabriel is in fact God’s smiling angel, and has the gift of the gab. Gab- means to talk, -ri- is smile, and -el is angel. A talking, smiling angel.
Then there is Michael. He is called an archangel in the letter of Jude. The chief angel over all other angels. Michael is Mi-cha-el. Cha is tea in Chinese, so it is my tea angel. A ‘T’ like the T that Jesus hung upon as I describe in J is for…..Jesus.
Michael is known as a strong angel, one who is right, a Right angel. And there is great strength in the ‘T’ of Jesus Christ.
In the phonetics Michael is ‘mikh-ah-ale’. So looks like not just tea, but ale for Michael. The English, or angles, or angels, drink tea and ale, the latter a type of beer. Perhaps that is why they do so well in life on the whole.
There are also the evil angels, most notably Lucifer, or Loopy Lucy, as I have mentioned elsewhere. The book of Revelation talks about a third of the stars falling to earth as a result of the action of a red, or fiery dragon. This is equated to the angels (stars) and the Devil and Satan. I will deal with them elsewhere.
So which type of angel do you want to be? Personally, I would not wish on anybody an Obtuse angel. That leaves Right angels and Acute angels to choose from.
As I am a MAN, and male, I go for Right angel. If you are female I would suggest Acute angel. I believe life goes well when Right angels and Acute angels come together as Husband and Wife. Complimentary roles.
People talk about angels, such as ‘Do be an angel and go and get me a cup of tea’ or ‘Oh you are an angel.’ when someone does something good for you.
So why not try it yourself? Go on, be an angel.
P.S. If you want to know more about God why no try this.
And of course if you were on another planet, then a day might vary enormously. If you have read the link you will note they have calculated Venus with a day as 5,832 hours!!
If you were on Venus (and its toxic highly pressurised atmosphere is not to be recommended unless you want to be suffocated, squashed and burnt at the same time), imagine how long before you might be able to go to bed. Lack of sleep can kill, you know!
Although the toxic atmosphere and heat would kill the average human being instantly anyway, so you needn’t worry about that. Venus sounds rather like a lake of fire to me.
But let’s come back to yesterday. Well, England beat the Germany at football for once in the Euros, hooray! Here are a couple of links below from the Guardian which I consider worth reading.
In the above following the headline it says ‘Locals in Berlin were subdued about their tournament exit as if resigned to being the underdog’
And at the end of the article:
Rainer Hoffmann blamed the coach Jogi Löw, for whom the defeat spells the end of a 15-year career in charge of the German team. “Jogi should have quit before the tournament,” said the 69-year-old pensioner as he finished up his beer. “He’s just the wrong guy, I’ve known that since he got the job in 2006.”
As the final whistle blew, Bruno Farace gave his son another hug. “What do you think, Matteo, will you wear an England shirt the next time around?” Matteo paused to think, and offered a compromise: “Maybe an Arsenal shirt.”
“The Euros were meant to be a dignified send-off for national coach Joachim Löw,” said Boris Büchler in a comment for broadcaster ZDF. In his first 10 years in charge of Germany’s national team, Löw had taken his sides at least to the semi-final of every tournament they participated in. In 2014, he came home from Rio de Janeiro with the World Cup.
Yet the dignified send-off was not to be, wrote Büchler. “Instead, the exit in the last 16 is the logical consequence of a downward spiral that began in 2016.”
So you could say poor Joachim Löw’s career ended in a new low!!
Let’s consider other events yesterday, but 80 years ago. The United Kingdom is at war with Germany. The following was listed in this link.
The Defense of Brest Fortress ended in German victory.
The Germans and Finns launched Operations Silver Fox and Platinum Fox, aimed at capturing the key Soviet port of Murmansk.
212,000 children were evacuated from Leningrad.
Hitler issued a secret decree formally designating Hermann Göring as his successor. This is the decree that was referred to in the Göring Telegram of April 1945.
Germans capture the port city of Libau in Latvia.
German submarine U-651 was depth charged and sunk in the North Atlantic by British warships.
Died: Ignacy Jan Paderewski, 80, Polish pianist
The Germans had invaded Russia and were sweeping the Red Army before them. The British Eighth Army (with British, Commonwealth, Indian and Allied contingents) were holding out in North Africa against Rommel and the Axis forces (German and Italian).
And German submarine U-651 was depth charged and sunk in the North Atlantic by British warships.
The last paragraph was a small battle in the struggle against the Axis forces, and a small victory in the scale of things. But small things always count; without them we wouldn’t achieve greater things.
Without these small victories the allies would not have eventually won the war.
The following site has fascinating information about the day.
You can read all about them if you wish, but it is with some amusement that 42 comes up! 42
It includes the following profile of another Joe.
Full Name: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
Profession: 46th US President, Vice President and Senator
Nationality: United States of America
Political Party: Democratic Democratic Party
Presidential Term: In office since January 20, 2021
Preceded By: Donald Trump
Why Famous: Current US President, who won election with a record 81 million popular votes, becoming the oldest sitting president.
Prior to assuming the presidency, Joe Biden served two terms as the 47th Vice President of the United States under Barack Obama.
A member of the Democratic Party, Biden was a United States Senator from Delaware between 1973 and 2009, until his election to the Vice Presidency.
In April 2019, Biden officially announced he was running to be the Democratic nominee for the President of the United States, his third presidential campaign and the first time he won nomination.
In November 2020 he defeated sitting US President Donald Trump by 306 election votes to 232, winning the popular vote by more than 7 million votes.
Born: November 20, 1942
Birthplace: Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
Age: 78 years old
Generation: Silent Generation
Chinese Zodiac: Horse
Star Sign: Scorpio
Now people will contest that Joe actually lost the election, and that there was wide scale fraud at the ballot box, with dead people voting as it were! That is people whose names were used despite being deceased of course.
Be that as it may, it might be noted that Joe’s star sign is Scorpio. Mmm, a beast with a sting in its tail. Interesting.
Reminds me of the book of Revelation when the tail of the dragon swept a third of the stars to the earth. Mmm.
In the Chinese zodiac he comes under the Horse. Like a horseman of the apocalypse perhaps. Mmm.
And he was born in 1942! Interesting, velly interesting. But stupid. That is a reference to Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in, a T.V. programme in the U.S.A.
Of course stupid may refer to Joe Biden and his abilities. Unlike Joe DiMaggio who despite his demons achieved something good with his life.
With reference to the Silent Generation (who seem to me to include many who were far from silent), there is reference to the silent majority which is why the generation is generally defined as silent. This explains.
Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, Über alles in der Welt, Wenn es stets zu Schutz und Trutze Brüderlich zusammenhält. Von der Maas bis an die Memel, Von der Etsch bis an den Belt, Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, Über alles in der Welt! Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, Über alles in der Welt!
Germany, Germany above all, Above all in the world, When, for protection and defense, It always stands brotherly together. From the Meuse to the Memel, From the Adige to the Belt, Germany, Germany above all, Above all in the world! Germany, Germany above all, Above all in the world!
It is said this has been misunderstood to mean that Germany should be foremost to the German people, rather than to mean dominating or conquering the world. Perhaps someone might have pointed that out to them before they started the first two world wars.
It would have saved a lot of bother as we in Britain might say in our understated way!!
The third verse says this:
Anmut sparet nicht noch Mühe Leidenschaft nicht noch Verstand Dass ein gutes Deutschland blühe Wie ein andres gutes Land.
Dass die Völker nicht erbleichen Wie vor einer Räuberin Sondern ihre Hände reichen Uns wie andern Völkern hin.
Und nicht über und nicht unter Andern Völkern wolln wir sein Von der See bis zu den Alpen Von der Oder bis zum Rhein.
Und weil wir dies Land verbessern Lieben und beschirmen wir’s Und das Liebste mag’s uns scheinen So wie anderen Völkern ihr’s.
Grace spare not and spare no labour Passion nor intelligence That a decent German nation Flourish as do other lands.
That the people give up flinching At the crimes which we evoke And hold out their hand in friendship As they do to other folk.
Neither over or yet under Other peoples will we be From the North Sea to the Alps From the Oder to the Rhine.
And because we’ll make it better Let us guard and love our home Love it as our dearest country As the others love their own.
Now that seems more like it. It came from the same pen of August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben (there’s a mouthful!).
So who misled the Germans? I blame Prussia myself and its stupid Junkers and mad Kaiser Wilhelm II. There is still a Junker today in the EU. Mmm. What’s his first name?
Anyway, it seems that the Germans have a good anthem although perhaps they might concentrate on the last stanza which seems excellent. Everybody should love their people and homeland and look after them properly.
And love strangers who visit.
Perhaps a last few words from Simon and Garfunkel’s song
And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more
This reminds me of the words of the New Testament letter to Jude in the Bible.
Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied about them: “Behold, the Lord is coming with myriads of His holy onesto execute judgment on everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of every ungodly act of wickedness and every harsh word spoken against Him by ungodly sinners.
Myriads might be 10,000 or even an uncountable number. Myriads could be My-ri-ads as in My smiling (laughing) adverts. The adverts, those who follow Jesus Christ who are adverts for Christ. We do not ‘sell’ Him as a product to be disposed of, but a person to be known and loved as He loves us.
And He comes freely. Freely you have received, freely give, He says.
It also says in the Book of Daniel that
At that time Michael, the great prince who stands watch over your people, will rise up. There will be a time of distress, the likes of which will not have occurred from the beginning of nations until that time. But at that time your people— everyone whose name is found written in the book— will be delivered.
Well, I am only a Baldmichael, with 18 followers at the moment. But I am trying to do my bit along with many others, to bring down the beasts that threaten to destroy the planet and God’s children.
If you don’t follow me yet you are welcome to do so. If you don’t, why not follow another website with the truths exposed.
You are welcome to use and share what I have gleaned in any event.
And don’t forget that following God’s Son, Jesus Christ is above all the most important. He is much more important than many think, vital in fact. He said that He had come that you (that is all God’s children) might have life and have it to the full.
Otherwise there is the lake of fire of Revelation to consider. Rather like Venus which I mentioned at the start.
And I think a good game of football would be better than that, don’t you?
