This is my representation of Archangel Michael slaying a devil. St. Michael the Archangel, illustrious leader of the heavenly army, defend us in the battle against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness and the spirit of wickedness in high places. ... The Lord has entrusted to you the task of leading the souls of the redeemed to heavenly blessedness. I like the image for it projects a very strong angel, fighting the enemy. The shield that Michael carries is my shield of faith against evil and tyranny.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
By painting Archangel Michael I imagine all of the evil in today's world, and how Archangel Michael, can help us to fight against evil and be strong against our enemies.
