Archangel Azrael is the “Angel of Death”. His name literally means “whom God helps.” Azrael is the one who meets you when you are on your deathbed, and he is the one who transforms your lively form into a body without a soul. Angel Azrael also assists people who have lost their loved ones over the grief and pain that they are suffering.
Purpose of Archangel Azrael in detail
Spiritual counseling is the job of Archangel Azrael; he makes sure that during the time of grief, a person does not completely lose his/her mind and do something that he should not be doing. For example, if you lose a loved one, you would be with immense grief and sorrow. During that time, you would not be thinking right and might end up doing something that could cause harm to another individual. In times like this, Azrael assists and calms down the minds of people who are facing such a crisis.
He has the powers of universal healing that people mostly need when they suffer a loss. Azrael’s main purpose is to help individuals transform the human life to the spiritual life. His core responsibility is to ensure that the process is as less painful as possible and less effort is required for a person to transform from the human to the spiritual world.
People, after they die, return to the spiritual life. It is the Archangel Azrael’s duty to help them adjust to this new world of eternity, as well. Death is an experience that is considered very sacred to the celestial bodies and is treated with a great amount of honor and respect. The lessons we learn from the death of a loved one, are lessons of a lifetime.
Lessons we can learn
The Archangel Azrael is aware of the lessons we learn which include the pain of unforgiveness, guilt, anger, and possible regret by the loss of a loved one.
It is also the responsibility of Archangel Azrael to help those who are having a tough time learning these lessons. By helping to release the guilt and anger will you only find peace; and Azrael is always available to assist you through this tough phase in life.
Angel Azrael is a gentle, loving, and kind angel who is given a tough duty which includes a whole deal of grief and pain. Therefore, he needs to have a gentle heart to deal with the sorrows of people and help guide them. Archangel Azrael approaches everyone with unconditional love and transfers this love into the hearts of others so that they may feel a bit relieved of the pain they are enduring. Azrael assists everyone with the highest good that he can and always honors the free will of a person.
Archangel Azrael, although is the angel of death, he does not know when a person will die and when he needs to use his powers to do it in the least painful way. It is only when it is time for the person to die, that God reveals this information to Azrael so he can start working out ways to get things done effortlessly. At God’s command, Angel Azrael separates the soul from the body of the person and returns it to God.
Azrael keeps track of the people who are born each day, and those who die each day. Therefore, he knows the exact population of the world for every minute. When a new person is born, Archangel Azrael inserts that baby’s name into the book in which he keeps a record. Just like that, when a person dies, the name of who dies, is removed from the book. Thus, the book gives an exact count of a minute to minute updates of births and deaths.
Angel Azrael is considered a grief counselor. He is also a patron angel of the clergy. He ensures that the person about to die makes peace with God and the people he leaves behind are given support in the best way possible to pass the tough time they are facing.
When you encounter such an experience, have faith in Archangel Azrael and pray to him to give you comfort in the best way possible and to bring your mind to peace. When asked upon for help, Azrael will respond to your prayer and help you. Help comes in all forms and ways. For example, if you encounter a situation where you lose a loved one, and you ask Archangel Azrael for help to calm your mind and heart… you will find him helping you in the most unexpected ways. You may find help in the form of a human being who comes to comfort you and succeeds in doing so. Or, you may get help from doing charitable works to divert your mind a little. Whichever way Azrael choses for you, is going to be the best way for you to get out of the situation of turmoil you are facing.
Death & Life
Death is an inevitable part of life; therefore, God appointed this angel to take care of this task to help humans transform the human life to the spiritual life. Taking care of this responsibility with wholeheartedness is the job of Angel Azrael, and he is an expert at it as he is equipped with all the tools he needs; by God. He will assist every individual in the process of their death, and he will also assist the people who are suffering the pain of the loss of a loved one.
You have to believe in Him and His capabilities that can help you in a situation where you can’t help yourself or can’t find help from anywhere.
