Israfel

by Micha F. Lindemans
God created him at the beginning of time, and of all God's creatures, he possesses the most beautiful voice. He will sound the Resurrection Trump which will ravish the ears of the saints in paradise. He holds this trumpet at his mouth century after century, for at any time God could give him the signal to blow it. At the first blow, all the stars and the mountains will fall down: the world will be destroyed. The second blast will set in motion the resurrection, when all the people will rise from their graves.

Israfel, Gabriel and Michael were the three angels that, according to legend, warned Abraham of Sodom's destruction.
