Sahaquiel the Prince of the 4th Heaven
The duty of ruling over the 4th heaven was also given to angel Shamsiel. Who is also known as the Prince of Paradise or the Guardian of Eden. But there other known rulers of the 4th Heaven such as: Oriphiel, Zabkiel and Zaphkiel.
The 4th Heaven is where the Thrones reside. Therefore, Sahaquiel is also the Prince of Thrones. He rules and watches over the Thrones. Making sure that they are honoring their duties. The Thrones are known as the 3rd highest orders of angels. Their main duty is to chant glorias to God. But they are doing many more.
These powerful angels appear only once in The Bible. The Colossians 1:16 describes Sahaquiel’s Thrones as: “for in Him all things were created, in Heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, Whether Thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities – all things were created through him and for him.”
But these Thrones appear in many sacred texts such as: The Testament of Levi, The Life of Adam and Eve, The Apocalypse of Elijah, The Book of Enoch and many more.
Archangel Sahaquiel makes sure that the Thrones mete out divine justice and they maintain the cosmic harmony. They also have to preserve the Universal Laws. Aggripa once said that “through thrones, humanity is knit together and collected into itself”.
