Technically, to invoke means to "call in" whereas to evoke means to "call forth."
Under normal circumstances you will invoke a deity when you want to assume its identity. You will evoke a deity when you want to communicate with that deity while retaining your own serse of identity.
A circie should be drawn around you to protect you during an operation as well as to symbolically remirad you that you are a microcosm. To attract an Enochian deity into this circie (and hence into the microcosmn of the magician) requires an invocation.
A triangle should be drawn outside your circle in order to attract an Enochian deity finto your macrocosm (but not your microcosm). This attraction requires an evocation. One example of an evocation is Crowley's well-known materialization of the demon KHORONZON from the tenth Aethyr, ZAX. To invite such a being into your circie could be harmful and should not be done lightly.
When invoking, use the Cup asa symbol of your openness and receptivity. When evoking use the Sword to keep the entity separate from yourself.
When invoking, you will become identified with the deity.You will speak and act with the authority of that deity. Thus you may:
1. Speak orarles or expound the wisdom of one thing or another.
2. Bless a person or thing in the narre of the deity.
3. Connmand those deities or entities that are lawfully under the jurisdiction of the deity.
When evoking, you will be able to embody the energy or virtue of the deity evoked into:
1. A talisman.
2. Any magical instrument or weapon.
3. A sacrament such as a wafer, or wine which can be consumed into your body or the body of another.
