6. Gabriel announces second coming of Christ. [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]
1 THESSALONIANS 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: BELIEVEST THOU THIS? HOUSTON, TX 50-0115
E-23 And God, when He sends a great something to the earth, He announces it by Angels. We realize that. The birth of Jesus and all down was announced by Angel. Now, minor Angels will come. Say for instance, the One that come visit me, a minor Angel.
But when you see Gabriel come down, something major on the road. Gabriel announced the first coming of Jesus; He will announce the second coming of Jesus. He will sound the trumpet, the dead in Christ shall rise. Gabriel, the great Archangel of God...

E-17 (…) Notice. Now, this Angel came, He was Gabriel. Now, God sends minor Angels (That's right.), perhaps the One comes here. And some people will actually puff their mind up with Angels and things, who they think they have seen, and things like that. That's just the counterfeit.
If a man has seen an Angel of God, and met God his commissioned, or that Angel commissioned him from God, and It was sent from God, it'll bear record right down to the line, that it's the truth. You believe that? But if it doesn't, it isn't the truth. That's one thing you can depend on, "By their fruits you shall know them." That's truth.
Now, notice this, that this Angel was Gabriel. Now, these minor Angels come; but when you see or hear of Gabriel coming, you get ready for something major fixing to happen. Gabriel was the One Who announced the first coming of Jesus Christ. Is that right? And we're taught in the Bible that Gabriel will announce the second coming. He will sound the trumpet of God (is that right?), the coming of the Lord, the Angel of God, Gabriel, Who stands at the--God's right hand.

E-24 We are looking for a heavenly Visitor in this day. It's a promise of God. Put on your deep spiritual thinking quick, church, and remember, we are now looking for a visitor and there's many claiming it. But the only way that we'll know this heavenly Visitor... because He'll bear record of the Word.
She knew that that Angel was from God when she seen His action. Looked at Him. It must be an Angel. He said, "I'm Gabriel, standing at the right hand of God." Now, when God gets ready to do something, He sends a messenger. Always, always has, He always will. Gabriel announced the first coming of Christ. Gabriel will announce the second coming of Christ. That's right. Something major is fixing to happen.
