Credited as the first order of angels created by God, it is the job of the
order of powers to protect the world from being taken over by demons.
They reside in the region between the first and second heavens and
patrol against “devilish infiltration.” They protect our souls from evil
and act as ministers of God who avenge evil in the world.
On a personal level, whenever a struggle between good and evil
takes place, the powers are involved. According to Rom. 13:1, “The
Soul is subject to the powers.” Further, at death the powers guide our
transition to the next life.Camael is believed to be “chief” of this choir, the sixth in the Dionysian schema.
