In this post I want to focus on the work of the Cherubim and Saraphim.
Cherubs first and foremost duty is to protect the Tree of Life. (Genesis 3:24), Jesus, the Creator and Supreme Ruler of all. God, who gave Himself to be a Sacrifice, so you and I could find Mercy and Grace in our times of need. (Salvation)
We find this service preformed by Peter in the Garden, as he cut off Malchus’s ear, when they arrested Jesus. (John 18:10)
When Moses was charged with building a Tabernacle, ( Exodus 25), a home, for the Lord, he was instructed to build and Ark with a Mercy Seat. It would hold Arrons rod that buds, a jar of Manna, and the Ten Commandments.
Even here in the Lord’s home, he would speak to Moses and the High Priest, from between the Cherubim.
The curtains that housed, enclosed, the Ark were all decorated with Cherubim. (I find this almost an invitation to worship the Angels, as they did the serpent on a pole. ???) (Exodus 26:1; Numbers 21:9; 2 Kings 18:4).
I believe the Cherubim are there today, (Psalm 91; Matthew 4), to protect our Lord, and are privy to our prayers and desires.
The Saraphim are closely related to the Cherubim but have a completely different purpose.
The Cherubim protect our Lord Jesus, the Saraphim stand in the presence of the Jehovah. Isaiah 6:1-3,6-8
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. “
The Saraphim are there to Worship God, to proclaim His Holiness, also to confirm the change in our lives Salvation brings. Our speach, and our purpose changed with Salvation. We should live To Serve Him.
” HERE AM I; SEND ME. ”
How about you? Are you prepared to serve?
