CHERUBIM, SERAPHIM, ANGELS, AND ARCHANGELS©

Peace Crusader and Echo of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit who we (plural) talk to revealed how we could distinguish the beings in Heaven. Cherubim, seraphim, angels and archangels are spiritual beings ministering to or serving God only. All, except archangels, do not give out their names. In Heaven, there are still male and female but they do not have sex organs, like God is male, the Father. Females also do not have twin peaks anymore. This is how they can be distinguished:
Cherubim (singular is cherub) – They have wings and have heads only. They are mentioned 91 times in the Holy Bible, but the first one is at Genesis 3:24.
Seraphim (singular is seraph) – They have wings on their back (Isaiah 6:2 says they have six) and their body is up to their waist only. They are mentioned in Isaiah 6:2, 6.
Angels – They have wings on their back and full body like human beings. They are mentioned about 400 times, like in Revelation 2:1, 8, 12, 18; 3:1, 7, 14 who are the angels of the different churches.
Archangels – They are like human beings without wings. There are only eight archangels, namely: Gabriel, Michael and his twin sister Luzbel, Raphael, Baraquiel, Exequiel, and two others whose names I forgot. All are male except Luzbel who was the “Light of Heaven”. She was also called Bekah in Heaven. Luzbel rebelled against God that is why she was cast out from Heaven together with the angels who sided with her. She was thrown down to earth and became Lucifer (Light of Earth). She is also known as Satan, the great dragon, the old serpent, and the Devil. Archangels give out their names (Luke 1:19,26; Jude 9).
Luzbelle rebelled as stated in Revelation 12:7-9, to wit:
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.
8 And preveailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Gabriel is the head of the archangels. His name is mentioned in the Holy Bible at Daniel 8:16, 9:21; Luke 1:19, 26. He was the one who announced to Zechariah that his old and barren wife would give birth to a son to be named John, and to the Blessed Virgin Mary that she, although a virgin, would conceive and give birth to a son to be named Jesus.
Michael is mentioned in Daniel 10:13, 21, 12:1; Jude 9; Revelation 12:7.
