Phanuel, meaning the Face of God, is known as the archangel of Hope. Phanuel's duties include bearing up God's throne, acting as a guardian angel to all who have inherited salvation in God, minister of Truth and is an angel of judgement. Furthermore, as The Book of Enoch attests, Phanuel is the angel of repentance unto hope of those who have inherited eternal life.

Piecing together the writings of Enoch and the Revelation of John, Phanuel, along with Michael, Gabriel and Raphael will all drink from the 'winepress of the Wrath of God', strengthening them in that day, the Day of the Lord.

Phanuel's arch-rival in the demonic hordes is Belial the Devil and the Master of Mankind. During the Battle of Armageddon, Phanuel will relinquish this rivalry, to fulfill the prophecy that God will destroy Belial with the word of His mouth.

According to The Book of Enoch, Phanuel is the fourth angel "set over repentance and those who hope to inherit eternal life". She is the fourth voice heard "fending off the demons (advisories or accusers) and forbidding them to come before the Lord to accuse them who dwell on the earth".
