Question What guns if Angels came to Earth (in mortal form) to take care of business...



Advertise Here

I was watching a film with Christopher Walken in it with Angels duking it out with some demons etc.

I wondered what Michael, Gabriel and the rest of the gang would arm up with if it came down to them taking mortal form...

Part of me reckoned possibly futuristic firearms or possibly just weapons that suited them the most etc.

What do you folks think?

.22LR and birdshot

Seriously, can't think of a meaningful answer. If angels and demons literally fought it out on Earth, I doubt they'd use any technological weapons. I would, however, expect a Hollywood movie to depict the angels using weapons generally identified with the United States and the demons using weapons generally identified with Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

Think of the weapons that are often associated with such beings. They are typically swords, spears, shields and other weapons that are synonymous with the era of of the biblical writings. That being said, they would evolve with the weapons over time to mimic the humans below and above. I would imagine the head angels would possess "Predator" style mini guns, laser rifles, light grenades, and fatboy nuke launchers (see Fallout 3). Taking that into consideration, i think your best bet is gonna be to tape some phone books around your belly, get a sharp stick with some dookie on it, a tube sock full of D batteries , a chainsaw at the end of a rope and a camel back full of your drink of choice (beer or rum for me) and charge into battle. You can only hope that your bravery and insanity will gain you entry into heaven.

You sharpen the stick then put the dookie on it. Preferably it should be from a raccoon or another vermin.

I guess if we are still alive on that day, we'll find out.

Otherwise, ""For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first."

1 Thessalonians 4:16 ESV

Hmm, I'm guessing if you can walk on water you don't need weapons to fight.

Colt SSA in 45LC. The only weapon truly inspired by revelation.

God helps those that help themselves.
God is omnipotent and can not be harmed
Archangels, just as regular angels, when they manifest themselves on earth, are in human form and are vulnerable to the same things natural humans are. But they are still angels, with angelic powers, and angelic traits.

So, I believe, that if the Archangels needed to come down to earth to do battle with evil, including evil humans, they would use equivalent types of weaponry as the current opponent, always with the traditional weapon each carried since Creation at hand as back up, or weapon of choice for demon encounters. They would not use technology beyond that of the opponent.

So, using basic technology concepts, the Archangels would be wearing current experimental conformal body armor for protection against human weapons, but with angelic powers infused to also protect them from demonic powers.

Weapon wise, I think they would be using, as in the body armor, current experimental weapons, with angelic enhancements for use against demons in human form. Additionally, other enhancements would be the absence of the need to reload, recharge, maintain, or otherwise do anything to keep the weapon in action other than handling it and pulling whatever trigger the weapon has. Small arms would self-holster, simply requiring touching it to the point on the body armor the Archangel prefers to carry it.

The actual weapons I would think would be all natural materials, metals and organics (wood, bone, ivory, etc.). No plastics or other polymers, no matter what the original human design and production weapon it is based on used. Each would be decorated with appropriate engraved and inlaid scenes, again using all natural materials.

As to the actual weapons choices, for this era in time, I would select what I would like to have myself, with the modifications as above. Thusly:

A select fire major caliber rifle
A select fire 20mm shotgun
A semi-auto major caliber handgun
A semi-auto major caliber medium frame back up gun
A semi-auto small caliber hideout gun
A semi-auto long range sniper rifle
A semi-auto extra-long range sniper/anti-material rifle
A personal fighting knife

Just my opinion

I have a feeling that if angels ever fight it out on earth, their weapons will by far outclass anything we've ever dreamed of. In the grand scheme of things, we're nothing but dorks.

I must have been sick that day in bible school, but archangels/angels were never to come on their own to "fight" demons. They shall be led by Christ, hence, he himself will be "here". Did I miss something?

Are you actually trying to turn the Prophesy movies into a serious discussion?

Honestly, if that actually happened we'd just be all around hosed. As I recall, the angels in that flick hated people just as much as the demons.

Well, they would probably use energy weapons. All probability the same energy that allows them to come here to earth from wherever they are from.

Clearly Angels would prefer M1As and 1911s. Demons would pack AKs and Glocks. Look deep inside, you know it's true.
