Angel of the East

In the book of Revelation angels are always descending except in one occasion that an angel is said to ascend from the East (Rev 7:2). While descending angels are obviously of heavenly origin be they good or bad (Satan is also an angel who came down to earth – Rev 12:9-11), an angel is seen by John to ascend from the rising of the sun (East) with the seal of the living God. The angel from the East shouts to the four angels standing at the four corners of the earth to not harm the earth or the sea or the trees before “we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads” (Rev 7:3).
