Archangel Raziel: Angel of Mysteries and the Secret of God


Archangel Raziel “Secret of God” Raziel is an archangel within the teachings of Jewish mysticism (of the Kabbalah of Judaism) who is the “Keeper of Secrets” and the “Angel of Mysteries”. He is associated with the sephirah Chokhmah (the second of ten) in Beri’ah, one of the Four Worlds of Kabbalistic theory. Various teachings assign Raziel to diverse roles, including that of a cherub, a member of the Ophanim, and chief of the Er’elim. Raziel, under the alternate name Galizur “Revealer of The Rock” and is described as the “ruling prince of the 2nd Heaven.” He is said to expound the “Torah’s divine wisdom” and protects the ministering angels from the living creatures that uphold the universe. The famous Sefer Raziel HaMalakh In his “Book of Raziel the Angel” attributed to this figure is said to contain all secret knowledge, and is considered to be a book of magic. He stands close by God’s throne, and therefore hears and writes down everything that is said and discussed. He purportedly gave the book to Adam and Eve after they ate from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil so the two could find their way back “home” and better understand their God. Raziel’s fellow angels were deeply disturbed by this, and thus stole the book from Adam and threw it into the ocean. God Himself decided not to punish Raziel, but instead retrieved the book by means of the angel Rahab and returned it to Adam and Eve. Bertie considers this story, which is not attested in the Bible to be a variant of the story of Prometheus in Greek mythology. According to some sources, the book was passed on through the generations to Enoch. (In 3 Enoch believed to have later become the angel Metatron) who may have incorporated his own writings into the tome. From Enoch, the archangel Raphael gave it to Noah, who used the wisdom within to build Noah’s Ark.
