GABRIEL – "God is My Strength"
The Angel of Revelation
The Christmas Angel – this name came about because of her role in the announcement of Jesus’ arrival
Her colour is White or Copper
Known as one of the 3 Angels mentioned in the Bible, she is also revered in Islamic and Judaism sacred text.
Gabriel, who is the only Female Angel, was the Angel who told Mary about the impending birth of Jesus in the Bible and dictated the Qur’an to Mohammed.
The sex of Gabriel is widely debated and always will be. All Angels are actually gender undesignated as they are humanless. However, Gabriel is the only Angel portrayed with a female body shape and flowing gowns. Her hair is curly and she has feminine facial features.
In comparison to the other Angels, who are depicted with tighter fitting costume, strong masculine facial features and body shape. Because of Gabriel’s role in announcing the pregnancies of Mary and Elizabeth, and her physical features in ancient paintings, it can be assumed she is a Female.
She is often portrayed holding a trumpet, representing her role as the God’s messenger and also her role as being the Angel who announced the resurrection of Jesus.
Archangel Gabriel has since been known as the Angel for expectant parents, adoptive parents and those hoping to conceive.
