The Fallen One – Archangel Samael – Fallen Angels


The Fallen Archangel Samael “Venom of God” “Poison of God” or “Blindness of God” Samael is an important archangel, a figure who is an accuser, seducer, and destroyer and has been regarded as both good and evil. Rabbinical writings describe Samael as the guardian angel of Esau and a patron of Edom. He is considered in Talmudic texts to be a member of the heavenly host (with often grim and destructive duties) One of Samael’s greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the main archangel of death. He remains one of God’s servants even though he condones the sins of man. As an angel, Samael resides in the seventh heaven, although he is declared to be the chief angel of the fifth heaven, the reason for this being the presence of the throne of glory in the seventh heaven.In Judaism, Samael is said to be the angel of death, and satan is accorded to him. While Satan describes his function as an accuser, Samael is considered to be his proper name. He is also depicted as the angel of death and one of the seven archangels, the ruler over the Fifth Heaven and commander of two million angels, such as the chief of other Satans. Yalkut Shimoni (I, 110) presents Samael as Esau’s guardian angel. According to The Ascension of Moses, Samael is also mentioned as being in 7th Heaven: and is as follows: In the last heaven Moses saw two angels, each five hundred parasangs in height, forged out of chains of black fire and red fire, the angels Af, “Anger,” and Hemah, “Wrath,” whom God created at the beginning of the world, to execute His will. Moses was disquieted when he looked upon them, but Metatron embraced him, and said, “Moses, Moses, thou favorite of God, fear not, and be not terrified,” and Moses became calm. There was another angel in the seventh heaven, different in appearance from all the others, and of frightful mien. His height was so great, it would have taken five hundred years to cover a distance equal to it, and from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet he was studded with glaring eyes. “This one,” said Metatron, addressing Moses, “is Samael, who takes the soul away from man.” For more information on the Fallen Angels and Archangels please watch the video or visit mythology explored by ANCIENT MYSTERY here on Youtube.
