Japhaniel

 

Pronunciation:  dzhuh-FAN-ai-ehl

Occurrences:  3

First Reference:  Wisdom 24:16

 

Then shall there be gathered unto them the hosts of Seraphim, and among them shall preside Abdiel, the Mighty, and unto his bosom shall there cleave Japhaniel.

 

 

See:  Abdiel, Seraphim

 

Summary:  Japhaniel and her eternal companion Abdiel are high ranking Seraphim who were entrusted with several important tasks by Ahman and Galendriel of the Council of Elohim. The two commanders were likely involved in the Seraphic defensive against Yaldabaoth’s first siege against Heaven (E:1:3-24), during which two hundred of their compeers were destroyed (5:15:1-49).

 

In the midst of the Shaemdiel's subsequent rebellion and disruption of Eden World, Japhaniel and Abdiel were charged by Galendriel to establish Seraphim guards around the other worlds of Paradise, to protect them against the Chief Archon's prideful ambitions (E:8:14-15). Abdiel later served as the ‘great Commander’ alongside the Ahgendai during the Second War against the Demiurgos (6:11:27). Japhaniel’s role in the Second War is unknown.

 

According to scripture, Japhaniel and Abdiel preside over a host of Seraphim, and are present during the exaltation ceremonies of God’s children (W:24:12-16).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

And calling unto Abdiel and Japhaniel, the Mother commanded that Seraphim be placed at the very gates of eternity, that the pathway through endless time might be secured against the coming forth again of Yaldabaoth.

Thus did it come to be that at the veils of countless ages did there watch, with constant vigilance, a great many Seraphim which, two by two, did guard the pathway to the First World, being of themselves steadfast and mighty.

Enlightenment 8:4-5

 

Thus in the regions of the Keep did the spirit children of God grow all the more distressed, being buffeted and cast about by the thunderous words of Shaemdiel.

And hearing the troubled cries of many children, the Mother called again unto Abdiel and Japhaniel and commanded that over all the other worlds of Paradise should the Seraphim set forth guards to watch, lest Shaemdiel go forth to afflict them also.
