The word "Michael" is a Hebrew word meaning "who is like God?", which consists of three sections:
1: Mi = who
2: cha = Is like
3: el = God
The general meaning of the word is the power of God, or of God (in power). It is a name that indicates God's power and holiness.
Michael is the archangel, the first of the seven archangels mentioned above. In Daniel he is called "one of the first chiefs”. The Church therefore considers him the chief archangel who always stands in front of the Lord, interceding for us in front of the Lord and defending the Church from its enemy. Our Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo Church holds memorial ceremonies for St. Michael on the twelfth day of every month of the Ge’ez year. His courage is beyond description, and his love for God is great.
