The Mercy of God
Zadkiel is the angel of benevolence, mercy and memory, according to Davidson's, A Dictionary of Angels. Some writers say it was Zadkiel who held back Abraham's arm when the patriarch was about to sacrifice his son Isaac. Archangel Zadkiel and Archeia Amethyst work on the seventh ray, which is violet, and represents transmutation and purification through invocation-the act of calling upon the presence of God for intercession. The archangels of the violet ray intensify the powers of mercy, compassion, forgiveness and freedom.
