Summary: Uriel is one of the seven mighty Arch-Angels of the celestial Council of
Elohim, who led “many valiant ones” into battle during the rebellion of Shaemdiel
(Lucifer) (W:2:36-38). The prophet Isaiah (c. 8th century BCE) is identified in scripture
as the mortal embodiment of Uriel, and leader of the fourth dispensation on this
One of Uriel’s foreordained objectives as Isaiah was to “foretell the coming of the
Anointed One”, who was later born as Yeshua Ben Joseph. Despite his efforts, Isaiah
was killed, and his words and teachings were corrupted, “causing that...the minds
of men be clouded with all manner of foolish expectations concerning this Anointed
42. For by the hand of Raphael shall the law be established, and by the appearing
of the Promised One shall the law be fulfilled.
43. Thus, in the day when the covenant people shall become as a mighty nation among
the children of men, in that day they shall walk after the pride of their heart,
to forget the covenant which you shall cause to be established with their fathers;
then shall you call forth from among them many prophets, whether male or female,
that they might warn the people against iniquity.
44. And if they will not give heed to the words of the prophets to turn again unto
me, then shall I send forth to them the Arch-Angel Uriel.
45. And he shall establish before them the promise of the Father, whereby the Promised
One shall arise from the midst of them, and you shall go among them to redeem the
world from the wiles of the Fallen One.
For in that day came Lucifer, whose countenance was beautiful above all others, and
by his words did he lead many to rebel, that he might take by force the kingdom and
the glory unto himself.
In that day were my sons and daughters divided, and one third did follow the words
of the deceitful one, and with great fury did they rage; upon the plains of Kuristan
did they gather to war against God.
And on the day of battle stood forth seven mighty ones, captains of the heavenly
hosts: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Ariel, Azrael, and Suriel, and with all
their might did they leap into battle, and behind them were many valiant ones.
Now as I was gazing upon the wonders of the night there came suddenly before me a
bright piercing light, and it did part and there stood before me the great Father
of All, even Ahman.
And there was with him Galendriel the Beautiful, and also the Arch-Angels Michael,
Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Ariel, and Suriel; and beside each stood their own Beloveds,
dressed round about in exceeding glory.
1st Endowment 1:11-12
Such was the evil, Most Holy Father, which pressed hard against the third dispensation
of God; and in the fourth came Uriel, who as Isaiah the prophet, would foretell the
coming of the Anointed One, but the evil grew darker still and Isaiah was killed.
And all which he taught and wrote concerning the coming of the Promised One did conspiring
men corrupt every whit, which thing filled the heart of God with sorrow;
Causing that in the days of Yeshua should the minds of men be clouded with all manner
of foolish expectations concerning this Anointed One; and with anger and malice did
they crucify the very Father of their souls, whereby they might preserve themselves
in power and forsake the good altogether.
