Azazel

Demons

Who is Azazel?

Azazel is a fallen angel whose evil influence led to the corruption of humanity. Because he was a leader among the fallen angels, the Jewish Book of Enoch commands its readers to “ascribe all sin” to him.

Characteristics

Physical Description

Originally, Azazel was one of heaven’s angels, a gloriously beautiful man with wings on his back. When he sympathized with Satan, he was cast down to earth and became one of the “fallen angels.” Presumably, the evil that he spread as a fallen angel corrupted his beauty as well. By the time he became a major character in Jewish and Christian texts, he had taken on a demonic appearance.

The Dead Sea Scrolls describe Azazel as a demon

“chained to the rough and jagged rocks of Ha […] in utter darkness,”

while the Apocalypse of Abraham describes him as a carrion bird, a serpent, and as a demon with

“hands and feet like a man’s and on his back six wings on the right and six on the left.”

Today, like many demons, Azazel is drawn with red skin, glowing yellow eyes, and a barbed tail. He may also be found wearing goat skulls or dressed in goat bones, since Jewish desert tribes once sacrificed goats to him.

Personality

From the start, Azazel was one of heaven’s most powerful and clever angels. When God created man, Azazel revealed that he had a rebellious streak too, as he refused to bow to man and objected,

“Why should God create a human being, who will shed blood and confusion, while the angels prostrate before him and sing his glory day and night?”

In response to this defiance, God cast Azazel and many other angels down to earth. The punishment didn’t stop Azazel’s rebellion. He became a leader of the Grigori, a group of angels who married mortal women and produced a line of monstrous children. Then, he began teaching evil to humans. He taught men the art of warfare and of weapon-making, and he taught women “the art of deception,” which involved making and wearing cosmetics. Finally, he began teaching humans about witchcraft. His influence was so disastrous that, in the Book of Enoch, God says,

“The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin.”

Cultural Representation

In Judaism

For early Semitic tribes, Azazel (literally “strong one against God”) was a very real force of evil. It was common for them to make sacrifices to Azazel at the same time that they made sacrifices to their god, Yahweh. As described in the Hebrew Bible, Azazel’s sacrifices were made by driving a goat into the desert wilderness or by pushing it into a deep ravine. These sacrifices were not meant to honor Azazel as a deity; rather, they symbolized the people sending their sins back to their original source.

The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Book of Enoch, and the Apocalypse of Abraham provided more details about how Azazel came to earth, what he did to spread sin on earth, and how he was punished by God.

In Christianity

Azazel is a less well-known figure among Christians, since the Latin and English versions of the Bible translated his name as “scapegoat” or “wasteland.” Seventh Day Adventists acknowledge Azazel as Satan’s right-hand man and claim that a special kind of torment awaits him on the Day of Judgment.

In Islam

Muslim tradition takes the story of Azazel even farther back, to the days when he ranked among the good angels. Some scholars believe that he was among the most wise and noble angels and that he fought against the jinn who lived on earth before humans. Others believe that he was a jinn who, as a reward for fighting against other jinn, was allowed to enter heaven and be called an angel.

Unfortunately, his position of honor made him arrogant, and when God created man, he refused to bow down to the new creation. For this reason, he was cast back to earth and became a plague on men.

Modern Appearances

Today, Azazel is not very well-known. He is only mentioned in the Bible twice, and very few people read the additional Jewish and Christian texts that provide more information about him.

A few works of fantasy have tipped their hats to Azazel. For example, he appears as a villain in X-men, Fallen, and Sandman.

I met a confused Azazel years ago.. he was first being awoken from the lake of hell 🔥. I blessed him and taught him the alchemical process of calcination. He promised to fulfill his oath of freedom, to fight for the holy creator on Earth with many armies. He agreed, he was dazzed and in much pain. I felt his presence yesterday and today. He will unlock the seal of babylon and restore his magical powers and unlimited armies of angelic Demons to banish the godless forever. Amen. Someone has to take the trash out.Hail Azazel. Jesus lead me to… Read more »

I spent a year with Azazel as he possessed my husband. He came first as wise wanting to teach, a friend, a powerful companion. He is seductive, manipulative, and cunning. He was set on destroying my husband, he tormented and abused his body, used him to do awful things. He kept me hostage by threatening to kill my husband and stop his heart on a daily basis; by cutting him if I didn’t entertain him. He would sexually violate me using my husband’s body as a vessell and threaten to tell my husband I was cheating on him with a… Read more »

Azazel has been following me since my birth I believe… One of my father’s friends told him that once when I was walking as a teenager he saw a huge dark winged angel following me close behind. Wierd or what that name always pops into my head is he truly wicked as I heard he loved his human wife?

God does BETRAY! We chose to leave Him. He’ll let us go.
There is a supernatural world. Some of you have watched too many TV programs uplifting evil. It attracts you. Get out as soon as possible. Eternity is forever. There is an unpardonable sin.
This is not fun and games.
Love and peace w Jesus. Sex is not a god. It is for our pleasure in marriage for procreation.

Do you have any modern day accounts of any humans who may have had some sort of interaction with Azazel? I am curious to know because it is of a personal matter to myself and my husband, and we would be interested in hearing anyone’s story who may have had any encounters with this entity.
Thank you

you have to pray relentlessly! you have to tell him to leave , if you’ll get strong with.christ , stop responding to them, ignore them . talk out loud about Jesus and how you’re a child of God .. It’ll get a lot better. It took me a year once I did these things

Azazel is deceased. Search NO MORE. He hasn’t existed for thousands of years. Dedicate your lives to the CREATOR. How could you be so foolish.

Azazel was bound and thrown in a whole in the desert with rocks on him. He is not deceased. If you ask me that’s the grand canyon. The only place that has a hole in the desert with jagged rocks on it.

so he’s human?? I’m sorry I’m just confused . I’d love to understand if you don’t mind. I’ve been dealing with demons since i was 5 yrs old. I see them everyday it’s a very Long story but I’ve never heard. Azazel. I had one in thr bed with me the other day . So know I’m back online trying to find ” my people” cuz others think I’m crazy. it’s been over a year that i had one in my house .it still freak’s me out! Everytime

It’s not about the spirit himself, it is about encounter his “influence”… Prideful or aggressive usage of weaponry and prideful usage of cosmetics.. Anytime you encounter someone wearing cosmetics to glorify their own appearance, you are encountering Azazel.. Likewise, anytime you see someone using weapons for anything other than defending the causes of God, you are seeing Azazel.. I hope this helps you… Be blessed..

So every young girl wearing makeup to follow trends or be like the movie stars/singers they adore are Azazel? What about innocent 2-3 year olds who wear their mothers makeup to be like mummy? Are they fallen angels/demons too? The amount of deaths caused in the name of God is despicable. “In my fathers house there are many mansions” widely believed to mean there are many paths to the house of god. Yet we kill each other over which book we choose to read and follow the laws of God from. I’m fairly sure, Thou shalt not kill is a… Read more »

Yes I have had an encounter with him. Several years ago when my friend and I were messing with an ouji board and this spirit was talking to us. He said he was a good spirit and that he could trust us. Several days later we used the board in a different location and it was the same spirit. He said that he had been following me for the pat several days. When we asked why he was following me, his response was; “good”. These spirits follow good souls and try to get them. Never give in.

He came to me in a dream, he was protecting me from a Demon. He appear as a big black wolf with yellow eyes and chased the demon from my house. I was screaming his name to help me and he did. After that dream I thought he was my gardian angel or something so I started to check online to know about him but according to the articles I read he would be mean with humans but why protecting me in my dreams? Im so confused… It was such an amazing but weird experience..

Azazel is a negative force per his choice in God’s creation plan. He is cunning by description. He could do something positive to get you to accept him as good. He’ll turn the tide on you and bring you calamity later.

Yes I’ve encountered Azazel since birth. More so since my curiosity in the fallen angels and reading the Book Of Enoch. Mind you he is not to be taken light hardily!! He obviously has something he wants you to know. I have found it best to let him tell you. He was once God’s most cunning and vicious angels!! He did not understand God’s creation in humans and was hurt that God’s angels did not provide enough praise and love to God. Azazel came to earth to provide art in war and what we call witchcraft. He also married a… Read more »

Reference: Paradise Lost – Azazel, Line 534 thru 600… 1) Azazel is described as Satan, and Satan “forthwith” is noted no more than a mere enemy, “not as the Devil or Lucifer” or moreover “the primary principality of darkness”. 2) Milton is apparently describing Azazel as calling on all Angel’s and Mortals who are willing to follow him to whatever end, either, “out of fear” or “dedication”. What is written is… Better to reign in Hell then to serve in Heaven? Lucifer’s demiurge, tumultuous hubris, and abject defiance, should bring awareness to the upcoming fall of Paradise…yet, lacking faith and… Read more »

Azazel fell in love n loved his wife very much. Maybe I’m a softie but I truly believe Azazel n the many watchers had not really planned on their children eating mankind or animals or each other. It took away their livihoods n how they lived away. They made money from humans. They lived with humans for many years, on a day to day basis. Relatioships were formed n so were bonds with their friends. Enoch wrote out apology statements from all them n they were each very sorry. It would be the same if my kids did something wrong… Read more »

When his being was broken out of his prison, I became his first host. I was only in denial for a short period of time. Our bond changed my personality,my memory, my opinions, and everything else. I didn’t sacrifice all that was required to keep containing him as my soul, so he moved on and has recently been removed of his genitals by angels when he was caught. His recovery is not progressing. I miss his purely evil ass. He has much more to tell humanity but someone wants him quiet.

A Satanist(?), To pursue GOD, our Creator, we have to SURRENDER to Him and He will guide our paths. Satan and his legions will tempt you w pleasure of the flesh and vices and self POWER. It’s all very gratifying..BUT, Satan has come to lie, kill and destroy. BUT this brief sense of POWER is gone after our death. You will He a slave in a burning Hell Fire for eternity. Christians surrender and are given gifts of the Spirit. Our eternity is rewarded in love and peace in heaven. PRIDE AND POWER WILL WIN YOU HELL! God open his… Read more »

The Bible says, money is the root to all evil. And what that mean is when you lust after money, when you love money, or you are willing to do all types of sin to get money. And if you study the Bible , you will know that God says that Satan is no longer call Lucifer. Because Lucifer is a Heavenly name and he was kicked out of heaven so therefore he’s not worthy to be called son of the morning aka Lucifer. You hailing to an angel that no longer exist.
