The Angel Jophiel

The Angel Jophiel One of the cherubim, Jophiel is accredited with being the angel to drive Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden after they eat the forbidden fruit. If this is the case, Jophiel receives also the honor of being the first angel to be mentioned in the Bible. In such a role, he is last left guarding the Tree of Life with a flaming sword to prevent the return of man Also called Iophiel and Zophiel, his name means "Beauty of God". Archangel of the Third Ray, Jophiel is the Angel of Paradise and the Patron Angel of Artists. Archangel of Illumination, he teaches the outer consciousness the Power of Light within oneself, stirs the feelings, through Radiation of Illumination, into aspiration for spiritual things. He helps in absorbing information, studying for and passing tests, dissolution of ignorance, pride, and narrow-mindedness, and exposure of wrongdoing in governments and corporations. Jophiel helps in fighting pollution, cleaning up our planet and brings to mankind the gift of Beauty. Jophiel is said in Jewish lore to be a special friend to the angel Metatron, and is one of the chiefs of the choir of Cherubim. He is a ruling prince of the Order of Thrones and the first World Teacher for our world. Christine, Jophiel's divine complement, acts as the shrine for wisdom. As the feminine complement of wisdom, she represents constancy, that which is steadfast and changeless. Often someone who is so lost in thought cannot focus long enough to translate all his or her great ideas into material creation. This person needs the balance of constancy. Many intellectuals need the energies of Christine to make them practical. Like all feminine complements to the archangels, Christine is the energy of Mater, which in Latin translates into mother. The feminine complement is like mother earth, the receptive garden into which a seed elemental life, all the creatures and plants on earth. All living beings are a combination of matter and spirit. Likewise each archangel needs a grounded complement to translate their power to the human realm.
