THE GOAT FOR AZAZEL

In this article, we are going to examine the ritual that was conducted anciently by the Israelites on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). I believe this ancient ceremony is significant regarding the fulfillment of end-time prophecy. First, let's start by looking at what the Scriptures tell us about this ceremonial observance:

LEVITICUS 16:1 The LORD spoke to Moses, after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they drew near before the LORD and died;
2 and the LORD said to Moses, "Tell Aaron your brother not to come at all times into the holy place within the veil, before the mercy seat which is upon the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.
3 But thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering.
4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and shall have the linen breeches on his body, be girded with the linen girdle, and wear the linen turban; these are the holy garments. He shall bathe his body in water, and then put them on.
5 And he shall take from the congregation of the people of Israel two male goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.
6 And Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house.
7 Then he shall take the two goats, and set them before the LORD at the door of the tent of meeting;
8 and Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for Azazel.
9 And Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for the LORD, and offer it as a sin offering;
10 but the goat on which the lot fell for Azazel shall be presented alive before the LORD to make atonement over it, that it may be sent away into the wilderness to Azazel.
11 Aaron shall present the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house; he shall kill the bull as a sin offering for himself.
12 And he shall take a censer full of coals of fire from the altar before the LORD, and two handfuls of sweet incense beaten small; and he shall bring it within the veil
13 and put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat which is upon the testimony, lest he die;
14 and he shall take some of the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it with his finger on the front of the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle the blood with his finger seven times.
15 Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering which is for the people, and bring its blood within the veil, and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, sprinkling it upon the mercy seat and before the mercy seat;
16 thus he shall make atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleannesses of the people of Israel, and because of their transgressions, all their sins; and so he shall do for the tent of meeting, which abides with them in the midst of their uncleannesses.
17 There shall be no man in the tent of meeting when he enters to make atonement in the holy place until he comes out and has made atonement for himself and for his house and for all the assembly of Israel.
18 Then he shall go out to the altar which is before the LORD and make atonement for it, and shall take some of the blood of the bull and of the blood of the goat, and put it on the horns of the altar round about.
19 And he shall sprinkle some of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it and hallow it from the uncleannesses of the people of Israel.
20 And when he has made an end of atoning for the holy place and the tent of meeting and the altar, he shall present the live goat;
21 and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins; and he shall put them upon the head of the goat, and send him away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who is in readiness.
22 The goat shall bear all their iniquities upon him to a solitary land; and he shall let the goat go in the wilderness.
23 Then Aaron shall come into the tent of meeting, and shall put off the linen garments which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there;
24 and he shall bathe his body in water in a holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering and the burnt offering of the people, and make atonement for himself and for the people.
25 And the fat of the sin offering he shall burn upon the altar.
26 And he who lets the goat go to Azazel shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and afterward he may come into the camp.
27 And the bull for the sin offering and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall be carried forth outside the camp; their skin and their flesh and their dung shall be burned with fire.
28 And he who burns them shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and afterward he may come into the camp.
29 And it shall be a statute to you for ever that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict yourselves, and shall do no work, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you;
30 for on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins you shall be clean before the LORD.
31 It is a sabbath of solemn rest to you, and you shall afflict yourselves; it is a statute for ever.
32 And the priest who is anointed and consecrated as priest in his father's place shall make atonement, wearing the holy linen garments;
33 he shall make atonement for the sanctuary, and he shall make atonement for the tent of meeting and for the altar, and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly.
34 And this shall be an everlasting statute for you, that atonement may be made for the people of Israel once in the year because of all their sins." And Moses did as the LORD commanded him. (RSV)

As this passage of Scripture shows, the high priest was to enter into the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle (and later the Temple) only one time per year, on the Day of Atonement (10 Tishri on the Hebrew calendar). This entry into the Most Holy Place was allowed so atonement could be made for the people, to cleanse them of their sins so that they would be clean before the LORD [YHVH] (Lev. 16:30).

The ceremony with the two goats is the main focus of the rite conducted on the Day of Atonement. In addition to the information recorded in Leviticus 16, we are given additional details about this observance in the Mishnah, which is the body of Jewish oral law recorded in the 2nd century CE. The tract Yoma describes this ceremony in detail.

In Yoma we are told that a box was brought to the high priest which contained two lots, one marked "for YHVH" and the other marked "for Azazel." The high priest put his hands in the box and brought out a lot in each hand; he held up the hand which contained the lot for YHVH. The high priest then tied a crimson thread on the head of the goat which was to be sent forth (the goat for Azazel), and another crimson thread around the throat of the goat which would be slain as a sin offering (the goat for YHVH).

After the high priest atoned for his own sins and those of his family by the blood of the bull (Lev. 16:6, 11-14), the goat which had been designated "for YHVH" was brought to him. The high priest then slaughtered this goat, and its blood was used to purify the Most Holy Place from the uncleanness of the Israelites. Who or what did this goat represent? The author of Hebrews clearly shows us the answer:

HEBREWS 9:11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with his own blood he entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (NKJV)

Unquestionably the goat chosen "for YHVH" was symbolic of Yeshua the Messiah. As the High Priest of the New Covenant, he entered the Most Holy Place in the heavenly Tabernacle and cleansed us of our sins with his own blood, not that of a goat:

HEBREWS 9:24 For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 not that he should offer himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another. 26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, he has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. (NKJV)

Through our acceptance of the sacrifice of Yeshua, we have access to the Most Holy Place in heaven and can go into the very presence of God our Father:

HEBREWS 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which he consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, his flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (NKJV)

Now after the goat for the LORD had been slain and its blood sprinkled on the mercy seat, the goat for Azazel was brought to the high priest. He laid both hands on its head and made the following confession:

"O Lord, your people, the house of Israel, has committed iniquity, transgressed, and sinned before you. Forgive O Lord, I pray, the iniquities, transgressions, and sins, which your people, the house of Israel, have committed, transgressed, and sinned before you, as it is written in the Torah of Moses, your servant, For on this day shall atonement be made for you to clean you. From all your sins shall you be clean before the Lord" (Yoma 6:2, The Mishnah, A New Translation)

At that time the high priest gave the goat for Azazel over to the man who was to lead it out into the wilderness. Anyone could be chosen for this task, but later high priests made it a practice of selecting someone other than an Israelite to lead the goat. The goat was taken to a ravine, thought by some scholars to be a precipice about 12 miles east of Jerusalem. At that time, the man leading the goat divided the crimson thread on the head of the goat. Half of it he tied to a rock, and the other half he tied between the horns of the goat. He then pushed the goat backwards until it fell into the ravine. Because of the steep and jagged nature of the chasm, the goat for Azazel was usually dead before it had fallen halfway down the mountain.
Who or What is Azazel?

We've seen from the Bible who the goat for YHVH represented, but what about the goat chosen for Azazel? Who or what did this goat represent? What is the true meaning of the Hebrew word 'azazel used in Leviticus 16?

These questions have caused a lot of disagreement among theologians. Generally, scholars have advanced four different explanations for the etymology and meaning of 'azazel. The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament (TWOT) outlines these four theories:

Azazel. This word appears four times in OT, all in Lev 16 (8, 10, 26) where the ritual for the Day of Atonement is described. After the priest has made atonement for himself and his house, he is to take two goats on behalf of Israel. One is to be a sacrifice to the Lord, the other is to be the "scape goat," i.e., the goat for Azazel. In all four appearances of this word, it has the preposition "to" attached to it.

This word has been variously understood and translated. The versions (LXX, Symmachus, Theodotian and the Vulgate) have understood it to stand for the "goat that departs," considering it to be derived from two Hebrew words: 'ez "goat" and 'azal "turn off."

By associating it with the Arabic word 'azala "banish," "remove," it has been rendered "for entire removal" (IDB loc. cit.).

The rabbinic interpretation has generally considered this word to designate the place to which the goat was sent: a desert, a solitary place, or the height from which the goat was thrown (cf. Lev 16:22).

The final possibility is to regard this word as designating a personal being so as to balance the "Lord." In this way, Azazel could be an evil spirit (Enoch 8:1; 10:4; cf. II Chr 11:15; Isa 34:14; Rev 18:2) . . . standing logically in antithesis to Lord. . . . (pp. 657-658, vol. II)

Regarding the four possible derivations of the word delineated above, the New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis says of 'azazel:

This word appears 4x in the prescriptions governing the Day of Atonement . . . Its undetermined origin and limited use in the OT has resulted in much speculation and uncertainty with regard to its precise and original meaning . . . Four major explanations have been suggested for the word . . .

The fourth position suggests that the Azazel is a reference to a desert demon . . . In support of this position is the book of Enoch, which uses this name for a chief demon (En 8:1; 9:6; 10:4-8; 13:1-2; 54:5; 55:4; 69:2). The OT also associates the appearance of goats with demons . . . Furthermore, the desert or wilderness is frequently described by both the OT and NT as the abode of evil spirits (Isa 13:1; 34:13; Matt 12:43; Luke 11:24; Rev 18:2). This interpretation also balances the parallel expression "for the Lord" in 16:8 and makes sense of the remaining grammatical expressions. . . .

The fourth [position] makes the most grammatical sense. (pp. 362, 363, vol. 3)

Regarding the use of 'azazel in Leviticus 16, The Abingdon Bible Commentary states:

The translation dismissal in the R.V. mg. here (cf. removal in A.S.V. mg.) is inadmissable, being based on false etymology. What the word meant is unknown, but it should be retained as the proper name of a wilderness demon. (p. 289)

In his Bible dictionary, James Hastings states:

'Azazel must have been such a[n evil] spirit, sufficiently distinguished from the rest, in popular imagination, to receive a special name, and no doubt invested with attributes which, though unknown to us, were perfectly familiar to those for whom the ceremonial of Lv 16 was first designed. (pp. 207-208, vol. 1, A Dictionary of the Bible)

In I Chronicles 5:8, the father of Bela, a Reubenite, is named "Azaz," which means "strong." This name comes from the Hebrew verb 'azaz, which means "to be strong." Regarding this word, TWOT says:

The verb 'azaz can be predicated of both God and man. . . . When used of man, this word carries the idea of prevailing as in a war or struggle . . . or as being belligerent, particularly to God. . . . (pp. 659, vol. II)

The Soncino Chumash says that 'azazel "is a compound of azaz, 'to be strong,' and el, 'mighty'" (p. 706). The Hebrew word el is often translated as "God" in the Old Testament. It is frequently used in combination with other words in proper names (i.e., Daniel - "God is my judge"; Samuel - "name of God"; Penuel - "face of God"; etc.). Therefore, as a proper name, Azazel could positively mean "strong one of God" or negatively it could imply "belligerent toward God."
Azazel in the Book of Enoch

The Book of Enoch (also called First Enoch) gives us quite a bit of information about a renegade angel named Azazel. Regarding the origin of the Book of Enoch, The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia says:

First Enoch is obviously a composite work, consisting of at least five different parts. . . . Since Aramaic fragments of ten different MSS, representing four parts of the book, have been found in the Qumran caves, it is quite certain that the book in its several parts was originally written in Aramaic and then translated into Greek at an early date. Considerable fragments of the Greek version have been found . . . The Greek version was translated into Ethiopic. In 1773 a traveller, James Bruce, brought three MSS in Ethiopic from Abyssinia to Britain. We now possess twenty-nine MSS, but all of them more or less corrupt. We have no materials to trace the history of the five parts of Enoch as individual books or as a collection.

Few objective criteria exist by which to date the production of these books and their collection. Most scholars believe they were written between 165 and 64 B.C., but conclusions vary considerably. (p. 156, vol. 1)

Furthermore, The Eerdmans Bible Dictionary says of the Book of Enoch:

Portions of the work were well known in Christian circles. 1 En. 1:9 is quoted explicitly in the Epistle of Jude (vv. 14-15) . . . The work was accepted as Scripture in various early Christian writings (e.g., Barn. 16:5; cf. 4:3; Clement of Alexandria Ecl. ii; Irenaeus Adv. haer. iv.16.2) . . . (p. 337)

Clearly, the Book of Enoch was widely known and used by early believers. It's apparent that Jude considered his quote from Enoch to be genuine. Because the present version has suffered corruption while coming down to us through the centuries, it is not now considered to be holy Scripture. However, it is reasonable to assume that the original text did faithfully record the words of Enoch.

Since Jude quotes from the Book of Enoch, we can also do so, if we are careful to ensure that what is used does not contradict or conflict with the Bible. By combining what we are told about Azazel in the Book of Enoch with what the Bible reveals, we can come to better understand the ceremony performed on the Day of Atonement and also end-time events.

Let's start with some background information from the Book of Enoch about a very important event that is recorded in Genesis 6:

GENESIS 6:1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. . . . 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. (NKJV)

This same event is addressed in much greater detail in the Book of Enoch:

ENOCH 6:1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto 2 them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men 3 and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not 4 indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations 5 not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves 6 by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn 7 and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, 8 Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of tens. 7:1 And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them . . . (The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, R.H. Charles)

The "sons of God" mentioned in Genesis 6:2, 4 are identified as angels in the Book of Enoch. This was the commonly accepted understanding of this Scripture until at least two centuries after Yeshua. For additional information on what the Bible teaches about these sons of God, refer to "Genesis 6 - Who Were 'The Sons Of God'?"

As you can see from the list of angelic chiefs named above, Azazel was not one of the angels specified as having come down on Mount Hermon. An angel named Semjaza is identified as the leader of the small group of angels who lusted after human women. However, we soon see Azazel appear in the antediluvian world:

ENOCH 8:1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all 2 colouring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. . . . (The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, R.H. Charles)

Although Azazel is not initially listed among the rulers of the 200 angels who came down to earth to mate with human women, he appears soon after this event. Later in the book (Enoch 54:4), Azazel is shown to be the ruler of this host of rebellious angels. Azazel, a powerful, high-ranking evil angel, apparently sought to take advantage of the lawless environment in the period of angelic rebellion before the Flood to wreak havoc on humanity. He accomplished this by teaching mankind how to make weapons and the art of warfare, among other things. This displeased God greatly, and Enoch shows that He decreed a stiff punishment for Azazel's sins:

ENOCH 10:1 Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel to the son of Lamech, 2 and said to him: 'Go to Noah and tell him in my name "Hide thyself!" and reveal to him the end that is approaching: that the whole earth will be destroyed, and a deluge is about to come 3 upon the whole earth, and will destroy all that is on it. And now instruct him that he may escape 4 and his seed may be preserved for all the generations of the world.' And again the Lord said to Raphael: 'Bind Azazel hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening 5 in the desert, which is in Dudael, and cast him therein. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may 6,7 not see light. And on the day of the great judgement he shall be cast into the fire. . . . 8 . . . the whole earth has been corrupted 9 through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin. (The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, R.H. Charles)

We see from the excerpt we just read that Azazel's punishment was to be bound and cast into an opening made in the desert and sealed up there, covered by rough and jagged stones in darkness. He was to remain in this place until the time of his judgment, when he would then be cast into the fire. When we examine the punishment later decreed for the remainder of the angels who sinned before the Flood, we get a little more information about this place where Azazel and the other demons were imprisoned:

ENOCH 54:3 And there mine eyes saw how they made these their instruments, iron chains of immeasurable weight. 4 And I asked the angel of peace who went with me, saying: "For whom are these chains being prepared? And he said unto me: "These are being prepared for the hosts of Azazel, so that they may take them and cast them into the Abyss of complete condemnation, and they shall cover their jaws with rough stones as the Lord of Spirits commanded. 6 And Michael, and Gabriel, and Raphael, and Phanuel shall take hold of them on that great day, and cast them on that day into the burning furnace, that the Lord of Spirits may take vengeance on them for their unrighteousness in becoming subject to Satan and leading astray those who dwell on the earth." (The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, R.H. Charles)

As the Book of Enoch shows, the hosts of Azazel were bound in chains and cast into the Abyss, to be covered with rough rocks just as Azazel had been. It's logical to conclude that this Abyss is the same place into which Azazel was earlier cast.

The Bible gives us some information about this place of restraint for the demons. First, let's look at an incident during the ministry of the Messiah that Luke records:

LUKE 8:26 Then they sailed to the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee. 27 And when he stepped out on the land, there met him a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, "What have I to do with you, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me!" 29 For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness. 30 Jesus asked him, saying, "What is your name?" And he said, "Legion," because many demons had entered him. 31 And they begged him that he would not command them to go out into the Abyss. 32 Now a herd of many swine was feeding there on the mountain. So they begged him that he would permit them to enter them. And he permitted them. 33 Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned. (NKJV)

As the passage of Scripture above shows, the demons who inhabited this man were terrified of being banished by Yeshua into the Abyss. Evidently this is the same place of restraint where Azazel and his host of evil spirits were being kept, and the demons who had possessed this man definitely did not wish to join them there in their prison.

Clearly some demons and fallen angels are free to spawn evil in the physical world. However, there are Scriptures which confirm that a portion of these evil spirits are currently restrained in darkness and chains, as the Book of Enoch details:

JUDE 6 And the angels who did not keep their own position, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains in deepest darkness for the judgment of the great Day. 7 Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which, in the same manner as they [the angels], indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (NRSV)

II PETER 2:4 . . . God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; (NKJV)

I PETER 3:19 . . . He [Messiah] went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. (NKJV)

The Scriptures above show what we have already seen in the Book of Enoch. Jude specifically states that it was those angels who committed sexual sins with human women that were being kept in age-lasting chains in darkness. These same angels are referenced by Peter in his second epistle. We are even told that the preincarnate Messiah went and preached to these imprisoned angels in the days while Noah was preparing the ark.
Azazel in the Bible

By combining what we have seen from the Book of Enoch with the Bible, we can understand who Azazel is and why he is currently imprisoned. Now let's see what the Bible tells us about Azazel and his host of evil spirits at the end of the age.

In the book of Revelation, John gives us a prophecy regarding the unsealing of the Abyss and the release of the evil spirit beings imprisoned there. This event, symbolized by the sounding of the fifth trumpet, is part of God's wrath on an unrepentant mankind:

REVELATION 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven fallen unto the earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the Abyss. 2 And he opened the pit of the Abyss; and there went up a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was said unto them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only such men as have not the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when it striketh a man. 6 And in those days men shall seek death, and shall in no wise find it; and they shall desire to die, and death fleeth from them. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for war; and upon their heads as it were crowns like unto gold, and their faces were as men's faces. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to war. 10 And they have tails like unto scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men five months. (ASV)

The "star" which falls from heaven to earth is an angel who has the key to the pit of the Abyss. This angel opens the Abyss and releases the demons and evil angels imprisoned there to torment humanity. God uses them for five months as an instrument of His wrath; they are allowed to inflict pain on those on the earth who don't have God's seal on their foreheads (Rev. 7:2-8).

REVELATION 9:11 They had for their king the angel of the Abyss, whose name, in Hebrew, is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon, or the Destroyer. (NEB)

In Revelation 9:11, the mysterious angelic "king" of the Abyss is called by the names Abaddon and Apollyon. Both these names mean "destroyer." If you will recall, the primary sin for which Azazel was imprisoned was for teaching men how to create weapons and destroy one another through warfare. It seems likely that Azazel and Abaddon/Apollyon are the same being. Although not specifically mentioned by these names elsewhere in the Bible, Azazel plays a major role in the events at the end of this current age. For additional information on this powerful fallen angel and his activities in the end-time, see my article "Who Is The 'Destroyer'?"

In Revelation 9:11, Azazel is identified as the king of the evil spirits who is released from the Abyss. This point identifies him throughout the rest of the book of Revelation. Twice Azazel is specifically referred to as the "beast" who will come up out of the Abyss:

REVELATION 11:7 When they [the two witnesses] have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the Abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. (NASU)

REVELATION 17:8 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the Abyss and go to destruction. . . ." (NASU)

Going back to the ceremony performed on the Day of Atonement, we saw that the sins of the people were placed on the head of the goat for Azazel. Then this goat was led into the wilderness and was eventually pushed over a cliff backward to its death, carrying with it the sins of the people. The Bible records a very similar fate for Azazel:

REVELATION 19:19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur. (RSV)

This precise destiny for Azazel is confirmed in the Book of Enoch:

ENOCH 10:7 . . . On the day of the great judgement he [Azazel] shall be cast into the fire. . . . (The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament, R.H. Charles)

As both the Bible and the Book of Enoch record, Azazel/Abaddon will be cast into the lake of fire at the end of this age of mankind. His defeat will inaugurate the reign of the Messiah on the the earth for a thousand years.
CONCLUSION

The religious ceremony performed by the high priest on the Day of Atonement had great figurative significance. The reality of Azazel's initial banishment and his eventual future vanquishment was portrayed symbolically for centuries through this ritual. Just as the goat "for YHVH" in this ceremony pictured the sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah for the cleansing of our sins, the fate of the goat chosen by lot "for Azazel" on the Day of Atonement depicted Yeshua's soon-coming triumph over Azazel and the forces of evil at the end of this age.

Default the red cross of azazel

A MUST READ
The red cross of azazel
http://www.scribd.com/doc/62144636/T...ross-of-Azazel

An excerpt from: The False Prophet Azazel by John of the Gentiles
Appendix A
The Rose Cross of Azazel
According to an esoteric reading of the Tarot, a Red Rose represents Venus (Azazel‘s
human wife), while a Red Cross represents the angel Azazel. The combined Rose-Cross in one
respect represents the sexual union of Azazel and his human wife. The word ‗Rosicrucian‘ is
German for ‗Rose Cross,‘ a term synonymous with Red Cross. In addition to this, the word
‗rose‘ is an anagram for Eros, the name of the Greek god of Love, who was the first-born son of
the angel Azazel and of his human wife. The 18th Degree in Freemasonry is commonly known
as the Rose-Croix (Rose Cross), a fact showing the relation to and establishing a link between
these two seemingly diverse organizations. In fact, the ascension of Freemasonry as we know it
today correspondingly relates to the decline of the Rosicrucian order in Europe (Dr Sigismund
Bacstrom, an important Rosicrucian scholar of the alchemical sciences, wrote in Bacstrom’s
Rosicrucian Society (circa late 18th to early 19th Centuries A.D.) of ―the August most ancient
and most learned (Rosicrucian) Society, the Investigators of Divine, Spiritual and Natural Truth
(which Society, more than two centuries and a half ago, did separate themselves from the
Freemasons…).‖ In addition, and of a most interesting note, The Order of Maat Supreme Grand
Lodge owns a web site called Links Central of Maat, by their own profession ―a web ring for
Rosicrucians,‖ which employs a rose-cross ankh symbol (a rosetau). This is derived from the
name of the Egyptian god Seker, who represented the angel Azazel, who was called ‗He of the
rosetau,‘ which is to say, he of the rose (red) cross. In Scene 2 of the 3rd Tableau of the Initiation
of Plato, it is revealed that Azazel‘s symbol, ―the red cross,‖ was ―traced upon the banner of
Egypt,‖ on what amounted to being the national flag of Egypt. And according to Flying Roll No.
10 (in Roman numerals, 10 = X, named in honor of Azazel) of the Hermetic Order of the Golden
Dawn, ‗X‘ (a cross variant) is the occult sign of Osiris risen (Osiris represented Azazel‘s cherub
Behemoth. It is for this reason A. E. Waite, a member of the Golden Dawn, lists the Wheel of
Fortune, representative of Azazel‘s cherub, as the 10th (X) Major Arcana of the Tarot). It must
also be noted The Church of Scientology employs a similar logo, called the Cross Saltire.
Compare to Aleister Crowley‘s O.T.O. Rose Cross Lamen. This signifies Azazel‘s (represented
by the ‗X‘) future appearance as the false Christ (represented by the cross). When the symbol for
Azazel (x) is superimposed upon the cross (+), it forms what is known as an eight-point compass
rose. For this reason a classical wooden ship‘s wheel, which resembles an eight point compass
rose, is at times used as a symbol of Azazel (as are wheels of similar composition). A ship's
anchor (often found wound round with a chain) is also used as a symbol for the union of Azazel
and his human wife, as it represents the union of the tau cross, representative of Azazel, with the
crescent moon, the crescent moon being a symbol of Azazel‘s human wife). In Egyptian
hieroglyphics the god Ptah (a god who represented Azazel) is always associated with an ‗x‘
within a circle (for this reason an ox has become an esoteric symbol of Azazel (Oxford
University derives its name from it). A male ox is called a bull, a common angel symbol. By
extension, Azazel‘s human wife may be symbolized as a cow. Egyptian cow goddesses
represent Azazel‘s human wife) (compare the ‗x‘ within a circle symbol of Ptah to the Cross of
Wodan, also a cross within a circle. The Germanic god Wodan is yet another god who
represented the angel Azazel/Behemoth. In some circles the ‗cross within a circle‘ motif is also
known as the Mark of Cain. Cain was the son of Azazel by Eve. The so-called Freemasonic
Scottish Rite 18th Degree Rose Croix quartered circle (also a symbol of the
Gnostics/Gnosticism) is a variant of the ‗cross within a circle‘ motif. The quartered circle was
the badge (talisman/magic charm) of the Grand Master of the Knights Templars). The red cross
(in appearance a red X), was emblazoned upon Azazel‘s cherub (―Lamia is the ―snake‖ among
the Ophidian; Lama is the hand: lamh, hand (for this reason a hand may also be used to represent
Azazel; an example is the god Sabazios, who represents Azazel, and whose symbol is a hand), is
a divine name in the Scythian tongue. It also means the number 10, and the Roman numeral X,
which is a cross….which, according to Eastern allegory, is placed…upon the Rebellious Spirits
(read: a red X was emblazoned upon the cherub of the angels) in their ‗abyss‘ or ‗prison‘ (within
the earth).‖ - The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries (SRIA member Hargrave Jennings, 1870 A.D.). The SRIA is an
English Rosicrucian Society. SRIA members, it must be remembered, gave birth to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn,
oweing its ―mysteries‖ in part to this book by Jennings).
According to the Ritual Magic of the Golden Dawn (p.208, King 1987), the rising of
Adonai, of Mithra the Lord of Wide Pastures was by the ancient mysteries symbolized under the
form of a rose (aka the ‗Rose of Dawn‘). In a like way, the gods Adonai and Mithra represented
Azazel/Behemoth. Azazel will in the future arise within his cherub being loosed from his earthly
imprisonment. In respect to the angel Azazel, the rose cross also symbolizes the future rising of
Azazel/Behemoth, Azazel being accepted as the coming Messiah. So the rose is also used as a
symbol of Azazel.
The red cross as a symbol of Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth also hearkens back to the
Egyptian mysteries of Osiris. The god Osiris represented Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth, and by
extension, Azazel. In the Egyptian Hymn to Osiris, the ―disk‖ of Osiris (Osiris = Behemoth) is
identified as the ―rosetau,‖ the rose (red) cross (―Divine oblation to Osiris (Behemoth) Khent-
Amenti, lord of Abydos… the disk… the ro-sta-u‖ Hymn to Osiris). Cherubim are disk-shaped.
It must also be noted the tau cross (rendered in Greek as a T) is the 19th letter of the Greek
alphabet. Azazel‘s prophesied release takes place on the 19th day of July 2016 A.D. In
Freemasony, the symbol for Azazel, a tau cross, is represented by the T-square. The
Rosicrucians, whose name means ―rose cross‖ in German, names their secret organization after
it. The Germanic name Christian Rosenkreuz, which in English translates as ‗Christian Rose
Cross,‘ represents no other persona than the rebellious angel Azazel himself. The name is a play
on words which may be interpreted as the christ of the red cross, representing Azazel, whose
sign is the red cross, in reference to his future appearance as the false-christ/false
prophet/messiah (See Revelations 16:13) (According to the Rosicrucian Hargrave Jennings (The
Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries, p.142), the color red is male and represents the
Salvator, a Latin word meaning ‗Savior‘). (It must also be mentioned when one adds the disk
(O) (Azazel‘s cherub is disk-shaped), to the word Sirius, it becomes Osirius, and when one drops
the ‗u‘ it becomes Osiris. The heliacal rising of the star Sirius in 2016 A.D. takes place on the
19th day of July, the day Azazel in his disk-shaped red-cross emblazoned cherub is to emerge
from his earthen imprisonment, claiming to be Christ. In this same way, the Babylonian god Ea,
alternatively spelled Ia (another such god which represented Azazel/Behemoth), becomes the
name of the Gnostic god Iao with the inclusion of the disk (O)). The words ‗Sirius‘ and ‗Osiris‘
are related to the Semetic word ‗Siru‘: ―Scholars ordinarily refer to the serpent god (who is
Azazel) by the name Siru, being the Semitic word for serpent…‖ - p.120, Tammuz and Ishtar (S. Langdon,
―Shillito Reader of Assyriology, Oxford,‖ 1914 A.D.).
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn also esoterically derives its name from Azazel.
Hermes was another Egyptian name for Azazel, he of a thousand names. The Golden Dawn is
analogous of the solar disk, the sun, which like Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth, is disk-shaped and
rises at dawn, which is the expected time of Azazel‘s future release (―the holy one (read: the
angel Azazel in his cherub) appeared…; as a golden dawn did he appear…‖ - Aleister
Crowley‘s LIBER ARCANORUM τών ATU τού TAHUTI QUAS VIDIT ASAR IN AMENNTI
SUB FIGURÂ CCXXXI LIBER CARCERORUM τών QLIPHOTH CUM SUIS GENIIS.
ADDUNTUR SIGILLA ET NOMINA EORUM) (in the Egyptian Book of the Dead Plate XXI
B.D. Chap. XV it was said the Egyptian god Ra, who represented the angel Azazel, ―risest at
dawn‖ in allusion to the time of Azazel‘s release). Israeli Regardie, a Rosicrucian who later
joined the Stella Matutina, a successor organization of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn
(Regardie served as secretary to Aleister Crowley), writes in his book entitled The Golden Dawn:
―‗The Rose-Cross‘… is a glyph…of the higher Genius (read: angel) to whose knowledge and
conversation the student is eternally aspiring‖ (in reference to Aleister Crowley‘s ―attainment of
the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel‖). The ‗Genius‘ of which
Regardie speaks with whom such individuals sought to converse is a so-called ‗guardian angel,‘
the angel Azazel. His glyph/symbol is the rose cross/red cross.
Indeed, Azazel is known as Sirius, the Hidden God of the Illuminati, so named as his
return is associated with the Dog Star Sirius. This fact is important enough to repeat. Azazel is
known as the ―Hidden God Sirius‖: ―In his book ‗Magickal Revival‘ Grant writes that Phoenix
was (Aleister) Crowley‘s most secret name. It represented the ancient Constellation in which
Sothis (Seth) or Sirius was the highest star. He writes that Crowley associated the very heart of
his teachings and ‗Magick‘ with a certain star, namely the „Sun behind the Sun,‟ the ‗Hidden
God Sirius.‘ The secret of the Illuminati, or the Enlightened Ones is the blazing star Sirius,
Grant writes.‖ – The Sirius Mysteries (Notable quote: ―To the Egyptians, the Sun behind the
Sun was known as Osiris (a god who represents Behemoth/Azazel) and also as Amun-RA, the
Hidden Sun.‖ - The Book of the Master by Marshall Adams). Crowley was merely carrying on a long
established magic tradition, most noteably of the magic practiced by high-degree Freemasons:
―The Ancient Astronomers (astronomers were also as a rule astrologers/sorcerers) saw all the
great Symbols of Masonry in the Stars. Sirius glitters in our (Freemasonic) lodges as the Blazing
Star (which is a symbol of Azazel).‖ - Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Scottish Freemasonry
by Albert Pike. Indeed, as we learn from C. W. Leadbeater (prominent member of the Theosophical
Society) in Glimpses of Masonic History the Blazing Star Sirius (representative of Azazel), the
so-called glyph of the higher genius with whom all practitioners of magic sought contact, was
symbolized by ―the Rose which ever blossoms at the heart of the Cross,‖ the very symbol of the
Rosicrucians themselves.
According to a footnote to The Dionysian Artificers: ―Thamuz (a variant spelling of
Tammuz) signifies the name of a month, and likewise the name of an idol or divinity, which
even in the opinion of St. Jerome is the same as (the god) Adonis (both are gods who represent
the angel Azazel). Plutarch says that the Egyptians called Osiris Ammuz, and from thence was
corruptly derived the name of Jupiter Ammon. Robertson (Thesaurus Linguae Sanctae) says that
the word Ammuz (read Ammoum) used by Herodotus and Plutarch, were corruptions from the
Hebrew Thamuz (Hebrew תםוז {Hebrew TMWZ**). I would rather say that the word was
originally Egyptian, and made Hebrew by the addition of the formative ת {Hebrew T**)…‖ And
so was an Egyptian name for Azazel, namely Ammuz, changed into the name Tammuz by the
addition of the symbol of Azazel, namely, the tau cross (rendered in Greek as a T). It must be
noted The Dionysian Articifers (circa. 1820 A.D.) is an essay written by an eminent Brazilian
Freemason. In Freemasonry the tau cross, the symbol of Azazel, is represented by the T-square.
(Notable quote: ―The TAU (the sign of Azazel) is the central figure of the Theosophical Seal (employed by the Theosophical
Society) and the heart of its message.‖ - The Theosophical Seal (Arthur M. Coon, 1958 A.D.)) (The Thames River in England is
named after Thamuz/Azazel: ―The Thames through Oxford is often given the name the River Isis, although historically, and
especially in Victorian times, gazetteers and cartographers insisted that the entire river was correctly named the River Isis from
its source until Dorchester-on-Thames. Only at this point, where the river meets the River Thame and becomes the ―Thame-isis‖
(subsequently abbreviated to Thames) should it be so-called; Ordnance Survey maps still label the Thames as “River Thames or
Isis” until Dorchester.‖ – Wikipedia: River Thames. Isis, it must be remembered, is an Egyptian name for Azazel‘s human wife))
(The Hammer of the god Thor, who represented Azazel, in form resembles and represents a tau cross (T), the sign of Azazel)
The Rose Window (the rosette window) on the façade of the Rosslyn Chapel (aka the
Collegiate Chapel of St Matthew) located at the village of Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland, employs
such rose cross symbolism in its architechural design. This is a symbol of the future release of
the angel Azazel. Other architetural features of Rosslyn Chapel include over 110 ‗Green Man‘
carvings. The Green Man represents the angel Azazel (the Egyptian god Osiris, a god who
represented Azazel/Behemoth, was depicted with green skin). Ancient Sumerian depictions of
Azazel show him wearing rosette bracelets (which would account for the rose being used as a
symbol of Azazel). It must be noted the Rosslyn Chapel was erected by 15th Century Masons
acting under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Church.
Ceremonial magician A.E. Waite and one-time Chief of the Druid Order in England
Godfrey Higgins believed that the secret to forming the Philosopher‘s Stone with the aid of dew
was the secret concealed in the Rosicrucian name. One interpretation of the Rose Cross is that
the rose represents the dew in an alchemical process, as Rosi Crucis translates as ‗dew cup.‘ The
following scripture esoterically refer to regeneration as it refers to the Resurrection. Note the use
of the rose motif to symbolize regeneration. Flowers are often used as symbols to represent the
human body:
―…your body is the garden of flowers.‖ - The Songs of Kabir
―Listen to me, you holy sons, and bud like a rose which grows by a watercourse; exhale
fragrance like a frankincense tree, and blossom like a lily. Give forth an odor and sing a song,
bless the Lord (God) for all His works.‖ - The Wisdom of Sirach 39:13-14
―How glorious he was…Like roses in the days of first fruits, like lilies by a spring of water, like
a sprig of frankincense, on summer days, like fire and incense in the censer…‖ - The Wisdom of
Sirach 50:8,9
―I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.‖ - Song of Songs 2:1 (KJV)
The rose and the cross of the Rosicrucians also symbolize regeneration. To Rosicrucians,
the rosy cross can represent the formula for the Universal Medicine, the panacea for all forms of
disease. In addition to the Rosicrucians, the Rose/Cross motif is shared by the Masons (as
evidenced by The Scottish Rite ‗18th degree Knight of the Rose Cross‘). To the Masons the
rose/cross was in one respect the symbol of regeneration: ―The rose is the ancient emblem of
spring. Upon the cross it signifies…man regenerated‖ (Ancient Masonry C.C. Zain 1994 p.
249). It must be noted a five-petaled rose is used to represent a pentagram, while a six-petaled
rose represented a hexagram. The cross is an esoteric symbol for a transverse electromagnetic
wave; a hexagram represents a standing wave (See The Knowledge of Wisdom by John of the
Gentiles.
The Rose/Cross motif is also a symbol of (as evidenced by the Rosy Cross lamen of) the
magic group known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. These organizations are all
associated and the use of shared motifs, vis a vis, evidence these organization‘s shared beliefs, as
well as their shared associations. Members of one such order are often members of similar
orders. These organizations are cell-like and dynamic, and like the hydra of old, they have many
heads working towards the same final goal, so the loss of one does not result in the destruction of
all, while others will spring up in its stead. The beast lives on to fight another day.
The ancient Roman practice of adorning with roses the door of a room in which
confidential matters were discussed gave birth to the phrase ―sub rosa,‖ which translates as
―under the rose,‖ meaning, ―to keep a secret‖ (Notable quote: ―…brought from ancient Egypt, is
the Cross upon the Rose — Cross, symbol of life, Rose, symbol of matter and symbol of secrecy
as well.‖ – The Brotherhood of Religions by Annie Besant Adyar Pamphlets No.24). These were secret meetings
of secret societies discussing secret matters. The Romans called the rose the ‗Flower of Venus.‘
The goddess Venus represented the angel Azazel‘s human wife.
King Arthur and his Round Table used Rosicrucian motifs, or, rather, vice versa. The
rose/cross symbol was said to be drawn upon the Round Table used by Arthur and his Knights
(the Tree of Life is also a common symbol amongst Medieval knightly themes).
Arthur‘s/Azazel‘s Round Table represented Azazel‘s cherub Behemoth. The red cross was also
associated with the Holy Grail which in the Arthurian legends was the Christianized symbolic
version of the long sought after cherub of Azazel (Behemoth). A rose is also the central motif
for the links of the chain upon which the ―Great George‖ is suspended amongst the jewels of the
Order of the Garter. The symbol of the Knights of the Garter is a red cross on a white shield.
Both were/are Masonic organizations. One symbol of the Knights Templar was the red cross on
a white background, also by design symbolic of Azazel‘s cherub (the rose/cross combination was
also the badge (talisman/magic charm) of the Knights Templar group). The tradition continues
today with the Red Cross organization. It must be mentioned many of the gods which
represented Azazel were gods associated with healing. The Sumerians worshipped Azazel as
Ninazu (nin means ‗lord‘), the god of healing and of the underworld. The Romans knew him as
Aesculapius, the god of medicine, and he was known to be as well the Greek and Phoenician god
of healing. The red cross which represents the god-angel of healing Azazel is for this reason
used as a symbol of the medical organization known as the International Federation of the Red
Cross, most commonly known as the Red Cross. (Notable quote: ―Many of the magical charms
and spells were for the healing of the sick or for the prevention of disease... Many charms and
spells surviving to the present day contain the names of pre-Christian gods (all representing the
angel Azazel). These spells are usually connected with cures for diseases in human beings and
animals‖ - p.75 The God of the Witches (Margaret Alice Murray, D.Lit., ―Fellow of University College, London,‖ 1933
A.D.))
Aesculapius was the Roman god of medicine as well as the Greek and Phoenician god of
healing. He was often depicted wielding what is known as the Staff of Aesculapius. Various
medical organizations adopted the Staff of Aesculapius as its medical insignia, the staff itself
consisting of an axial rod with a single winged serpent entwined about it. The U.S. Army
Medical Corp has the Staff of Aesculapius as its insignia. The winged staff/serpent symbolism
was also employed in the symbol of the Caduceus of Hermes. Enki‘s emblem (Enki who also
represented Azazel) was two entwined serpents and was the symbol of his ‗cult center‘ at Eridu,
same as that of the medical profession. This symbolism is also reminiscent of the Sumerian
underworld god of healing, Ningishzida (Nin- means ‗divinity‘/lord), who‘s symbol was two
snakes entwined around a central axial rod (the Rod of Ningishzida is the symbol of the great
guild of physicians in England) (It must be noted one of the many Egyptian titles for Azazel was
―the two-headed serpent‖ (See the Egyptian Book of the Dead Plate XXXI)). The satyrs
themselves carried a similar instrument known as a thyrsus, also known as the rod of Dionysus, a
stick wound round with ivy and tipped with a pine cone. The Sidonian god of healing, Eshmun,
was also depicted holding a serpent entwined staff in his right hand. All of these healing ‗gods‘
represented the angel Azazel who holds the title of Chief Physician. In fact, Azazel was what
was known as a ‗rapha,‘ a surgeon, a member of the medical profession. The Book of Enoch
lists medical practices (including abortion) as being amongst the secrets which were revealed to
mankind by Azazel and his group of fallen angels. Many early doctors were students of the
occult, as many folk cures can be found amongst the folklore of many civilizations. Magic
practicing cunning folk often employed herbal medications.
The fact that the cross (X) is linked with Azazel, who is oft confused by some as being the devil Satan
himself, is the reason the horned devil, who in reality represents the ‗horned god‘ Azazel, is associated with
crossroads. In fact many Egyptian mummies are laid to rest with arms crossed in the sign of ‗Osiris Risen,‘ the
crossed arm symbol of Azazel being depicted on numerous Egyptian statues and reliefs (most notably depictions of
the god Osiris/Azazel himself) (a man sitting cross-legged may also be thusly interpreted. For example: ―The Indian
figures of the Horned God (who is Azazel), found at Mohenjo-Daro, are of the earliest Bronze-age…The most
remarkable is that of a man with bull‘s horns on his head, sitting cross-legged…This representation was regarded in
historic times as a form of Shiva (who represents Azazel) and is called Pasupati, ‗Lord of animals‘ (a shepherd of
sorts. Azazel is often depicted as a shepherd god).‖ – p.11 The God of the Witches (Margaret Alice Murray, D.Lit.,
―Fellow of University College, London,‖ 1933 A.D.)). Two crossed swords in the form of an ‗X‘ is a symbol of the
Roman god of war Mars who likewise represented the angel Azazel, as is the ‗skull and crossbones‘ insignia said to
have been originally flown on Knights Templars ships, though being more famously flown on English privateer
pirate ships of British persuasion (these being known collectively as ‗Jolly Roger‘ flags). Interestingly enough, this
symbol for Azazel, namely the ‗skull and crossbone,‘ is a design used in the logo of Yale University‘s Skull and
Bones secret society, of which ex-Republican-presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush were prominent
members (the Skull and Bones secret society mimics the experience of the angels who are entrapped within the earth
when they bury new initiates in a coffin and later unearth them). The eminent British
knight/astronomer/astrologer/sorcerer Sir Isaac Newton esoterically pledges his allegiance to the fallen angel Azazel
through his employment of a crossed-bones (X) motif sans skull in his personal coat-of-arms. The swastika is also a
variant form of the sign representing the angel Azazel. The swastika employed by German Nazis, Neo-Nazi Aryan
groups and the Theosophical Society itself is but the Indian/Hindu form of the sign representing Azazel (X). It must
be noted the swastika, the Hindu sigil of Azazel, is the letter ‗G‘ in the Ancient Northern European/Anglo-Saxon
Runic script known as ‗Futhorc‘ (the Armanen ‗Futharkh‘ of Guido Von List) This is the esoteric reason for its
inclusion within the Freemasonric ‗Square and Compass‘ standard.
It must be noted that the Roman emperor Constantine the Great (c. 285-337 A.D.), who
made Christianity the official religion of Rome, of ―In this sign, conquer‖ fame, conquered under
the sign of Azazel (as did the ancients Egyptians, England, and later Hitler, also similarly
conquer under the sign of Azazel) when he emblazoned the red cross on white background
insignia on the shields of his conquering legions (See also the Labarum of Constantine which
incorporates the sign of ―Osiris risen,‖ namely, the ‗x‘). The Knights Templars (c. 12th - 13th
Centuries) likewise employed a red cross on white field motif, as did their Crusading
contemporaries the Knights Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem who ran a hospital there in
Jerusalem, in what is now modern day Israel. Today the Hospitallers are headquartered in Rome,
as is the Vatican, and the Grand Master of the Knights Hospitallers group is considered the
world‘s highest-ranking Catholic lay person. The modern contemporary of the Knights
Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem is the medical organization known as the International
Organization of the Red Cross which likewise employs a red cross on white background insignia,
this being the sign of Azazel. The British Red Cross Society works closely with a group called
the St. John Ambulance Association, named after the leader of the Knights Hospitallers, St. John
of Jerusalem. The red cross, also known as St. George‘s Cross, is the English national emblem,
with the British national flag incorporating a red cross on a white background motif within its
design, as well as the esoteric ‗X‘ sign of Azazel (however, the Flag of England is simply a red
cross on white background!): ―The Union Jack (the flag of the United Kingdom) is a
combination of the military ensigns of St. George's Cross for England, St. Andrew's Cross for
Scotland, and St. Patrick's Cross for Ireland.‖ – p. 36 Manners, Customs, and Observances: Their Origin and
Significance by Leopold Wagner (1894 A.D.). All of these sigils are representative of Azazel (as are the
saints with whom these crosses are associated). Consider also the May-pole, one of the central
motifs of May Day celebrations in England: ―In olden times nearly every village had its Maypole,
around which, decorated with wreaths of flowers, ribbons, and flags, our merry ancestors
danced from morning till night. The earliest representation of an English May-pole is that
published in the Variorum ―Shakespeare‖…The pole is planted in a mound of earth (planted in
the earth, representing Azazel‘s encapsulation within the earth), and has affixed to it St. George‘s
red-cross banner (also known as the ―Colours of Saint George,‖ the red cross being the sign of
Azazel)…‖ - Folk-lore of Shakespeare Chapter XI (T.F. Thiselton Dyer, 1883 A.D.).
All of these motifs represent and honor the angel Azazel whose sign was the redcross on white
background.
(Of an interesting added note, the American Eagle such as that depicted on the back of the dollar
bill (a decidedly Masonic emblem) is often pictured with its wings unfurled and its legs
outstretched forming an esoteric ‗X‘ the sign of Azazel (its left claw clutches divining arrows!).
Azazel, it must be remembered, often dressed in bird costumes and was symbolized by a bird)
―The Knights of Pythias is a fraternal organization and secret-society founded at Washington, D.C., on 19 February 1864.‖ –
Wikipedia: The Knights of Pythias. Famous Pythian Knights include former U.S. Presidents Warren G. Harding, William
McKinley and Franklin D. Roosevelt, ex- U.S. Vice-Presidents Hubert Horatio Humphrey and Nelson A. Rockefeller, as well as
U.S. Senators William Jennings Bryan, Robert Byrd and Charles “Chuck” Schumer, including U.S. Supreme Court Justices
Hugo Black, Benjamin Cardozo, as well as Bob Jones, Sr., prominent Evangelist leader and founder of Bob Jones University.
The Knights of Pythias logo employs a crossed axe (double axe in the form of an X) logo which includes arms and armor (it was
Azazel who introduced the armorial arts to humans), as well as a lion. All of these emblems are esoteric symbols of the false
prophet Azazel. The Knights of Pythias (read: the Knights of Azazel, Pythias being a cognate of Python/Typhon) are still in
existence today. Charles Schumer is the senior United States Senator from New York state, born in Brooklyn, N.Y. to a
Jewish immigrant family.
Another symbol of Azazel is the Watchtower, as it is from such an exalted edifice the Greek god Bacchus (who represented
Azazel) was said to watch over the grape vines from which he made his wine. See also the Greek Magical Papyrus [PDM
xiv.554-62] which states: ―…the Temple of Osiris (Behemoth/Azazel), my Watch-Tower.‖ As we learn from the early church
father Athenagoras: ―‘Osiris is named Dionysos by the Greeks.‘ And Bacchus is but another name for Dionysos. I will do for
you according to the Voice of Isis, the Magician, the Lady of Magic, who Bewitches everything, who is Never Bewitched in her
Name of Isis, the Magician.‖ Azazel is also associated with the Tower of Babel beneath which he lays entrapped (See Hidden
Truths: A History of the World from Beginning to End by John of the Gentiles).
The death of St. George, the patron saint of England, is depicted on St. George‘s Collegiate Church in Tübingen
(erected no doubt by Freemasons). Note the eight-point compass rose (x superimposed upon +), a symbol of
Azazel. The rose is also a symbol of Azazel, hence the association of the ―rose‖ with that of the eight-points of the
compass. It is likely St. George represented Azazel. Many pagan gods were made into saints to ease their
worshiper‘s conversion to Christianity (the following selection is exemplary of this notion: ―The Roman Church
adopted the Angels and Archangels of the Celestial Allegory as its Saints, including Saint Bacchus (Bacchus represented the
angel Azazel) and Saint Satan in place of Guardian Spirits that were once human beings (read: angels incarnate).‖ - Gnostic and
Historic Christianity (Gerald Massey)). Note Azazel‘s sign (x) in the form of an equilateral cross in the decorative
motif to the north of ‗St. George.‘ Also, the word ‗george‘ means farmer. Cain, the son of Azazel by Eve the wife of
Adam was said to be a farmer (See Genesis 4:2).
Concedes C.F. Oldham (Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society in London), in a book devoted to the history of serpent
worship as universally encountered in nearly every ancient religion, entitled The Sun and the Serpent: ―The legend of St. George
and the Dragon, although it assumed its present shape in Christian times, was probably founded upon an older story.‖ The story
concerns, of course, the fallen angel Azazel. Indeed, one astrological symbol of the stately planet named in honor of the Horned-
God Saturn who represented Azazel was such a mounted horseman with lance (See Astrology, p.61, Louis MacNeice, 1964
A.D.); no doubt this symbol was also a symbol of Azazel.
As we learn from Wikipedia: ―The Most Noble Order of the Garter is the highest order of chivalry, or knighthood,
existing in England, founded in 1348. The Order is dedicated to the image and arms of St. George (who represented Azazel) as
England's patron saint.‖ Gerald B. Gardner explains the establishment of the Order of the Garter was in this way: ―It is said that
King Edward III saved one witch from certain torture at that famous incident to which the origin of the Order of the Garter was
ascribed. He was dancing with the Countess of Salisbury (she was a high priestess in a witches coven) when she dropped the
ritual Garter (―the garter is a badge of rank among witches‖) which proclaimed her high rank in the cult. With Bishops about this
was dangerous, so the King, knowing what it was (it being the witches symbol denoting ones rank as high-priestess in a witches
coven), picked it up and put it on his own leg, saying: 'Honi soit qui mal y pense' ("shame upon him who thinks evil upon
it")…The King's quickness saved the situation (as the Bishops would have tortured her and burnt her at the stake for being a
witch) and placed him almost in the position of their incarnate god in the eyes of his more pagan subjects. This was followed by
the foundation of an Order of twelve Knights for the King and twelve for the Prince of Wales, i.e. twenty-six members in all, or
two (witches) covens‖ (See Witchcraft Today, 1954 A.D.). Gardner therein poses the following question: ―In this connection,
can anyone tell me exactly what is the meaning of the double SS on the collar of the Garter?‖ SRIA member Hargrave Jennings
provides the answer in The Rosicrucians: Their Rites and Mysteries (p. 119): ―the British golden collar of ―S.S.‖ (worn on the
collar of a Knight of the Order of the Garter) which is worn as a relic of the oldest day (in perpetuation of a mythos long ago
buried (a nod to the fact that Azazel is currently interred within the earth)…and forgotten in the dust of ages) by some of our
(British) officials, courtly and otherwise…belongs to no known order of knighthood, but only to the very highest order of
knighthood, the Magian, or to Magic.‖ And it is the sign of Azazel, the god of magic, the horned-god of the witches, the original
Mage himself.
The following red-cross on white background is the symbol of the Order of the Garter:
Azazel has left his mark the world over!

Ezekiel 8

1And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.

2Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.

3And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

4And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.

5Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

6He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.

7And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.

8Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.

9And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.

10So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.

11And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

12Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.

13He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

14Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

15Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

16And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

17Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

18Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
