Who Is Archangel Chamuel?

Chamuel, also known as Camniel, Khamael, Camiul, Camiel, Seraphiel, Shemuel, and Kemuel, is the archangel of compassion and love. Chamuel is known for his gentleness to those who call him.

Some believe that Chamuel was the leader of the forces that expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden holding a flaming sword.

According to Genesis 3:22-24:

”And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever. Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”

His name is included in Corpus Areopagiticum (a work by Christian theologian and Neoplatonic philosopher Pseudo-Dionysius) as one of the seven Archangels along with Zadkiel, Jophiel, Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel, and Michael.

His name means ”Who Sees God” or ”Who Seeks God.” His aura was described as a peaceful but powerful pink ray.

Chamuel is known as one of the ten Kabbalah angels, assigned to the sephira Gevurah, according to a popular work (A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels) by Polish writer Gustav Davidson.

Jesus Connection

It is thought that Archangel Chamuel has comforted and accompanied Jesus Christ during his expedition in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Luke 22:39-44:

”Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”
