“Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Rev. 22:20).

Michael, the archangel, helped a lesser-ranked angel get through to answer Daniel's prayer (Daniel 10:13, 21). He will stand up for Israel during the 7- year Tribulation period (Daniel 12:1). --the 7-year time period in the end times in which humanity's decadence and depravity will reach its fullness, with God judging accordingly.
