Revelation 20: 1-2 ” And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.”

God could have sent the archangel, Michael…who was a mighty warrior.  He could have sent the angel, Gabriel…who had announced the birth of Jesus.  But instead, He sent someone else.  An angel that not only carried the keys to the Abyss, but wrangled the devil, hog-tying  him up in a chain and tossing him headlong into the bottomless pit.  God didn’t need to send Michael or Gabriel to subdue the devil…He just needed some unknown  angel to do the  job.
