The Angel of Death
Note: Many Lilithians are also curious about Lilith’s husband Samael, the angel of death. This extensive paragraph was written by me based on my experience in reply to someone else’s inquiry on Samael. I thought I would share it, in case anyone want to know about working with the biblical (Jewish) Satan. Keep in mind, this is mostly my own personal UPG with him.
I work with Samael extensively before Lilith. I don’t think he is a fallen angel, in the traditional sense, and according to the Zohar or Kabbalah he is only called “evil” because he desires to intermingle with evil, but it is not his nature. He is the prince of demons. Therefore, he works for God still just as Satan never rebelled against God in the bible. (At least the Hebrew bible.)
Samael is not a major player in Christianity so most resources will be Jewish based. From my experiences he leans more towards the Jewish and Jewish mystic side of things than even Lilith does.
He is identified as Satan of Job in the Zohar but you have to be careful here, because so many Christians and former Christians make this mistake; he is not the Christian Satan. Judaism has never, ever placed much importance on Satan at all and Samael is still God’s Left Hand and “Severity of God.”
The Christian devil is a scapegoat that is a combination of pagan gods and is portrayed at times as powerful as God himself but evil. The Jewish Satan is the angel of death for God that executes sinners with help from his wife Lilith. Basically, he punishes people. (So Samael is *not* Lucifer or the Christian version of Satan.)
The Jewish texts also say he isn’t against God just mankind. He is the prosecuting attorny in God’s heavenly court against humans.
From my conversations with Samael, he is highly intelligent and a bit of an anthropologist. I don’t think he hates humankind per se just has a low tolerance for stupidity.
Angels seem to have this terrifying “otherness” about them where it’s a bit like if we we were communicating with extraterrestrial aliens. (They weren’t born on earth after all, they were born in heaven!) They’re as intelligent as humans but they have opinions that are very “foreign ” and thus weird to us humans. I met one angel who thinks humans shouldn’t be allowed to listen or make music. They’re very non-human.
However I don’t get this with Sam. He is extremely “down to earth” in personality and very relatable compared to other angels. Likewise he is extremely intelligent and is good at his job, so he will call people out on their bullshit. He understands humanity completely compared to other angels.
You must also remember Samael has 4 wives. Lilith is his first one but Naamah is another popular one.
You can message me if you want. I don’t pray or do rituals to Samael, I mostly interact with him in the astral realm. (He doesn’t like to be depicted, by the way. In Judaism nothing from heaven is allowed to be depicted and he follows those rules, for me, at least.)
