Naming the Archangels

 

The importance of a name was seen from the earliest days of humanity.  Adam was told to name the animals.  Normally when you take a pet into your house what is the first thing that you do?  You name it.  

 

When Moses was at the burning bush, he asked God what his name was.  He was told it was “I AM That I Am my name is I Am.”  Moses knew that the people would want to know the name.  Because the invoking of the name of a numinous being would invoke power, the people would want to know it and thereby prove Him to be the supreme God even over the Egyptian gods.  They could then accept their freedom.  

 

Naming is so important that there was a whole set of rules set up about God’s sacred name.  It was called the tetragrammaton, YHWH or JHVH.  These were the consonants of the name of God.

That name was considered too powerful, and the ecclesiastical order of Judaism hide it from the people.  And it was a taboo to say it because the mere vocalization was thought to unleash power that was too eminence to be trusted in human hands.  Think here a the ten plagues called down on Egypt.  They were brought with the pre declaration “that you may know that I am the LORD [the now unspeakable sacred name used]”.

 

Evidently the name can be used for good or ill.   So it is with archangels and their names.  What powers they have can be invoked as we use their name.  But like the name of God, the correct name must be used and do we really know their names.  

 

What we do know for sure is their descriptive titles.  These are descriptive of their individual work.  That can be invoked and not necessarily their full power but more specifically focused power.  This would tend to make their services less volatile than the power of the sacred name of God.    

 

When the archangels are named it is a naming of access to specific intent and not a broad spectrum of power unleashed.  In days past many farmers blasted stumps out of their fields with a judicious amount of blasting power.  You could blast it out with an atomic bomb too.  But that would not be prudent.  

 

We can use the archangels as focused power sources to help us.  They are sent to do service.  By invoking their names and/or titles you are activating their power.  

 

We do not need to know the tetragrammaton, sacred name of God.  If we did, the potential for activating it would unleashing something that could easily get wildly out of control.  That being said though, we can still accomplish our goals.  

 

The ancient Hebrew language had no vowels in the writing.  Later writing added the vowel points below the consonants.  However when the scribes wrote the tetragrammaton they did not use the correct vowel points.  So when the text was read and pronounced, they were saying the consonants of the sacred name of God with the vowels of a descriptive title of God.
Now 5,000 years later no one appears to have any concrete idea as to what the vocalization of the name God really sounds like.  There are a lot of claims and speculation, but who really knows?  What we do have are the names of the archangels.  That is enough to fulfill, maybe not our greeds, but our needs.
