Gabriel - Man of God

This is the name of one of the archangels of Jehovah, referred to in some of the high degrees of Masonry. He is always represented in the Scriptures as the Messenger of Divine grace, of infinite love, and of redemption; such is his rank in the rites of Freemasonry. — ( Daniel 9:21,27 - Luke 1:18,19 - Luke 1:26,27 )
