History of Archangel Jofiel
The Jofiel Arc is one of the so-called princes of heaven who are in the presence of God . This is the arch of the intellect, wisdom and enlightenment, so it is thought that he was the one who expelled Adam and Eve from paradise, then taking care of the path which led to the Tree of Life.
There are those who believe that this is the angel that builds bridges of energy between the different levels of spiritual reality, allowing communication between angels and humans. But his virtues go beyond that, because Jofiel helps to increase the consciousness of the spiritual plane and therefore, the wisdom of man.
Who is Archangel Jofiel?
Jofiel is also known as Jophiel, Yofiel, Iofiel, Iophiel, Zophiel or Zaphiel.
The name Jofiel means "Light of God" or "Beauty of God" and refers to the learning of humans on the way to their goal of spiritual ascension. Archangel Jofiel can show man that everything is a teaching process that is repeated over and over again until he understands the meaning of God's Plan.
This learning is the one that is operated in the soul through successive incarnations and in this area this archangel helps inspiring the wisdom that allows the soul to be released from its chains that bind it to the earth.
In this way, Jofiel brings humans closer to their creator and allows them to abandon the incarnations of this lower spiritual world to begin to incarnate in worlds of greater spirituality.
In Christianity, Jofiel is not officially recognized, since only Gabriel, Miguel and Rafael are in the book of Enoch. The Protestant churches only recognize Gabriel and Miguel and consider the cult of Jofiel as idolatry.
It is believed that the Book of Enoch was written by Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah, although recent research states that it was written between the third century and the first century BC by several Jewish authors.
In this book, the 7 archangels were Gabriel, Miguel, Uriel, Raguel, Remiel and Zerachiel . Then it was Pseudo-Dionisio who named the 7 archangels as we know them today: Gabriel, Uriel, Rafael, Samuel, Jofiel and Zadquiel. Finally, Pope Gregory I appointed the 7 archangels Miguel, Rafael, Gabriel, Uriel, Selaphiel, Jegudiel and Barachiel. However, the list of Pseudo Dionysus is the one accepted today, but at an extra official level.
In Judaism, Archangel Jofiel is the equivalent of Yefefiah, who watches over the Torah reading on the Sabbath. Kabbalah points it out as the angel that must be invoked to create amulets and for some people, it would be the angelina Dina, guardian of the wisdom of the Torah.
Representation of Archangel Jofiel
- Jofiel celebration day: September 29
- Day of the week: Monday
- Color: Yellow or Gold
- Chakra: Seventh
The representation of Archangel Jofiel has golden clothes, representing wisdom and enlightenment, a burning sword in one hand, representing his task of caring for the Tree of Life, and a book in the other, as a symbol of knowledge.
Jofiel's sword is the sword of fire that God placed on the path that led to the Tree of Life after expelling Adam and Eve, the one quoted in Genesis. There are those who believe it was the sword of a cherub, but God really put two cherubs and the sword as a separate entity. This seems to point out and there are those who believe so, that the sword itself was the representation of Archangel Jofiel.
Another of its representations has peacock feathers, symbolizing the beauty of its name "Beauty of God" and showing the multiple eyes of the feathers of this animal as a symbol of consciousness.
Jofiel's color is yellow or gold, but more commonly gold, as a color that does not exist in the spiritual planes in which the human soul is found and only corresponds to saints or sages.
The gold, like the yellow color, represents the mind and issues such as intelligence, understanding and logic, but the gold is also spiritual enlightenment, deep transcendental understanding and supreme wisdom.
This archangel is represented by the seventh and final chakra, the spirituality chakra and the one that connects the human with the divinity. This is the chakra that provides intense spirituality, which brings with it wisdom and enlightenment as fruits of divine inspiration.
