about archangel metatron 7 facts

Another fascinating Archangel to look closer at is Archangel Metatron.

As we mentioned in the previous post, archangels do not have specific genders, but their qualities become associated with genders when depicted in artwork.

Archangel Metatron is most often associated with being male. However, it should be noted that Archangel Metatron is more closely related to being a field of energy rather than anything that can be personified.

But we will look closer at this throughout the post. So, let's look at seven facts about Archangel Metatron that you will hopefully find fascinating to learn.


7 Interesting Archangel Metatron Facts

1.Archangel Metatron Is More Closely Associated With Being An Immense Spiritual Fire

This association with being an immense spiritual fire makes it so challenging to personify him in any way.

Despite this, his intense energy has been personified as male, so we will continue to refer to Archangel Metatron as 'he' where appropriate. 

Archangel Metatron has become known for his divine wisdom, spiritual light, and deep understanding of the universe's creation because of his spiritual fire. 

He is said to be a bridge between Earth and the Creator so that he can support individuals on earth with their knowledge of creation and wisdom.

2. It Is Believed That Metatron Is The Second Most Powerful Being

Archangel Metatron is said to be second to God in terms of power and influence on the world. This is likely due to his mention by name in the ancient text known as the Babylonian Talmud.

In it, a Jewish rabbi, Elisha ben Abuyah, saw Metatron seated in Paradise beside God and wondered whether there were two powers, not just one as previously thought. This was because they believed that nobody was permitted to be seated in the presence of God. 

As such, Metatron has since been seen as a mighty being, although it was later made clear to the rabbi that Metatron was indeed just an angel, as he was able to be punished by God.

3. It Is Said That Archangel Metatron Is In Charge Of All Other Angels

Archangel Metatron is said to be second to God in terms of power and influence on the world. This is likely due to his mention by name in the ancient text known as the Babylonian Talmud.

In it, a Jewish rabbi, Elisha ben Abuyah, saw Metatron seated in Paradise beside God and wondered whether there were two powers, not just one as previously thought. This was because they believed that nobody was permitted to be seated in the presence of God. 

As such, Metatron has since been seen as a mighty being, although it was later made clear to the rabbi that Metatron was indeed just an angel, as he was able to be punished by God.

4. It Is Believed That Metatron Started Life As A Human Being On Earth

Only two archangels have ascended from earth to join God as an archangel, Sandalphon, and Metatron.

Metatron is believed to have started as a human incarnation before ascending to heaven and becoming an archangel.

According to Jewish beliefs, the individual known as Enoch in the Torah was taken to heaven and turned into an angel.

Although Metatron was not mentioned anywhere in the Torah directly, it has since become a common belief in the Jewish community that it was Metatron that Enoch turned into when he ascended the earth.

Enoch is also mentioned in the Bible in both Hebrews and Genesis, and it seems to be suggested that he did not die but instead was taken by God and served alongside him.

This adds to the growing evidence that Enoch may well have later become the Archangel Metatron in his role walking with God.


5. There Are Physical Ways To Communicate With The Archangel Metatron

Few other archangels have objects or images directly associated with them in terms of opening up a channel of communication. Archangel Metatron does, however, and it is said to be Metatron's Cube.

Metatron's Cube is designed with spheres and straight lines, the spheres to represent femininity and the straight lines to represent masculinity.

It has been suggested that looking at Metatron's Cube can help you focus your attention and energies on communicating with Archangel Metatron and asking for his guidance or wisdom.

Because Archangel Metatron is also associated with peace, concentrate on Metatron's Cube during moments of meditation can also help you to feel more at ease in yourself too.

6. He Is Said To Be The Writer Of The Book Of Life

Whether you know it as 'The Book of Life,' 'The Book of God's Remembrance,' or 'The Akashic Records,' it is said that Archangel Metatron was the scribe to record all that happened on earth.

Inside the book is a list of everything that has happened on earth, including everybody who has ever lived and all of their deeds. 

Many believe that Archangel Metatron recorded this for God, given his proximity to the Creator and his in-depth knowledge of Creation.

It is also suggested in the Babylonian Talmud that Elisha ben Abuyah witnessed Metatron sitting in God's presence because he was the Heavenly Scribe recording all of Israel's deeds. 

It's interesting to think that these modern beliefs and ancient scriptures combine to create a theory that certainly makes sense. Perhaps Archangel Metatron is the Heavenly Scribe of the Book of Life.


7. Metatron's Main Purpose Is Said To Be In Helping Humans With The Ascension Process

This certainly makes sense given that it is a common belief that Archangel Metatron was previously the human incarnation Enoch, who ascended earth into heaven to walk with God.

Metatron is also associated with Divine Light and wisdom, so he is said to be the Archangel that you should welcome into your life if you seek guidance in the ascension process, so that you too are ready to walk in Paradise after your death.

Archangel Metatron is fascinating to learn more about because his existence appears in ancient scriptures.

His power and influence are still reaching out to earth even today. We hope you enjoyed these seven facts about Archangel Metatron.
