Moses, The Scapegoat, Azazel the Fallen and Enoch

The fallen angels of Genesis have names. Many are known, but most translations of the scriptures remove those names, either by design, plan, agenda or ignorance.  Check your bible against the three Levitical scriptures below.

Moshe (aka “Moses”) knew the names of the fallen, some of them and maybe all of them. Common knowledge among the Hebrews.

For example, in Leviticus chapter 16 of the bible translated by the Jewish Publication Society (JPS) and a few others, the scapegoat goat released by the Levites for the sins of the people is released to a fallen angel with a specific name.  That fallen messenger is named “Azazel“, and Moshe did not have to explain to the Hebrews who “Azazel” was.  They knew.

Strong’s Concordance

azazel: “entire removal”

Original Word: עֲזָאזֵל
Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
Transliteration: azazel
Phonetic Spelling: (az-aw-zale’)
Definition: entire removal

Interesting that the masculine noun (name) “Azazel” means “entire removal”.  The “el” on the end also means “god” or “of god” of “by god”.  The scapegoat, carrying the sins of man, is released to “entire removal”, and also that the “entire removal” is represented as received by a wicked, rebellious fallen angel who, as you will learn, is destined for fire himself.

  • Lev_16:8  And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats: one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for Azazel.
  • Lev_16:10  But the goat, on which the lot fell for Azazel, shall be set alive before the LORD, to make atonement over him, to send him away for (to – jd) Azazel into the wilderness.
  • Lev_16:26  And he that letteth go the goat for Azazel shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he may come into the camp. (Merely releasing a burdened goat to the wicked was an act of uncleanness-jd)

Azazel Described By Enoch

“Thou seest what Azazel hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which 7 men were striving to learn: And Semjaza, to whom Thou hast given authority to bear rule over his associates. And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the 9 women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women have 10 borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness. And now, behold, the souls of those who have died are crying and making their suit to the gates of heaven, and their lamentations have ascended: and cannot cease because of the lawless deeds which are 11 wrought on the earth.

Enoch

1 Then said the Most High, the Holy and Great One spake, and sent Uriel (Uriel is a high ranking angel assigned to teach Enoch – jd) 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. And heal the earth which the angels have corrupted, and proclaim the healing of the earth, that they may heal the plague, and that all the children of men may not perish through all the secret things that the 8 Watchers have disclosed and have taught their sons. And the whole earth has been corrupted 9 through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin.’ (remember the GOAT-jd) And to Gabriel said the Lord: ‘Proceed against the bastards and the reprobates, and against the children
of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and] the children of the Watchers (the Nephalim/giants – jd) from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]: send them (the giants) one against the other that they may destroy each other in 10 battle: for length of days shall they not have. And no request that they (i.e. their fathers) make of thee shall be granted unto their fathers on their behalf; for they hope to live an eternal life

[Chapter 13]
1 And Enoch went and said: ‘Azazel, thou shalt have no peace: a severe sentence has gone forth 2 against thee to put thee in bonds: And thou shalt not have toleration nor request granted to thee, because of the unrighteousness which thou hast taught, and because of all the works of godlessness 3 and unrighteousness and sin which thou hast shown to men.’ Then I went and spoke to them all 4 together, and they were all afraid, and fear and trembling seized them. And they besought me to draw up a petition for them that they might find forgiveness, and to read their petition in the presence 5 of the Lord of heaven.
For from thenceforward they could not speak (with Him) nor lift up their 6 eyes to heaven for shame of their sins for which they had been condemned. Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their spirits and their deeds individually and in regard to their 7 requests that they should have forgiveness and length.
And I went off and sat down at the waters of Dan, in the land of Dan, to the south of the west of Hermon: I read their petition till I fell 8 asleep. And behold a dream came to me, and visions fell down upon me, and I saw visions of chastisement, and a voice came bidding (me) I to tell it to the sons of heaven, and reprimand them

Azazel Condemned Forever

[Chapter 54]
1 And I looked and turned to another part of the earth, and saw there a deep valley with burning 2 fire. And they brought the kings and the mighty, and began to cast them into this deep valley.
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.’

Some Christians are afraid to read Enoch.  I also at one time considered Enoch to be some weird book not to be read.  But that was when I was weak in my faith, weak in wisdom and lacking understanding.  During that time I also considered “giants” to be nonsense.

The Book of Enoch was obviously read and well-known by the Hebrews, as was the Book of Jasher (Righteousness).  There are at least two “Book of Enoch” in publication.  One is alleged to have been discovered in Ethopia, and the other in the Qumran cave.  Both are, of course, translations.  I have read them both and both seem to be pretty good.  I cannot say much more than that, and the fact that the Book of Enoch is mentioned in Holy Scripture and is known to the people in Scripture is fully sufficient for me to read and study both Enoch and Jasher.

Jasher does have a couple of forgeries out there.  The copy I have is a paper copy I bought from Amazon and is the one I recommend.  Here is the link: Amazon – Ancient Book of Jasher

The Jasher book is tremendously interesting, covering in marvelous detail the life of Joseph.  I read it over a period of three days, in the woods, camping alone in the fall.

Yahusha is in complete command of all things, and He died for us, so do not fear about tomorrow.  Please do not worry yourself about the future.  We are all here together and we will all stand together all the way through whatever we have to endure together.  We are more than conquerors.  We are redeemed spirits, living for eternity.  We cannot be defeated.  It is impossible.
