Names of Angels

There are a couple of bible appearances in the Bible that the angels participated into. In fact, there are at least seventeen appearances of angels listed in the Gospel scriptures in the whole New Testament. The scriptures do not show the names of the Angels that appear in the Bible. Nonetheless, among the long list of angels the three popular ones are Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. These are the events wherein they paid a visit to some holy people in the bible. They are the ones delivering good news given by the good Lord.

“But the angel said to him, "Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John." “(Luke 1:5, 11-13)

"Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus." “(Luke 1:26-28, 30-31)

"Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.  The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.  The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, which is called the devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it."  Revelation 12:7-9
