“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.”
The angels cried Holy, the angels cried Holy, the angels cried Holy is the Lord. (Isaiah 6:1,3)
This is one of my favorite songs to sing and play. Isaiah has the only two verses that mention seraphim in the Bible. While the Cherubims had the job to protect the Tree of Life. (Jesus) The seraphim job is to reign praise and worship on to the Lord. (Yahway)
They also are the ones who reasure us of our salvation. The Alter with the blood of Jesus, and the Fire of the Holy Spirit, to assure us of our worth to the Lord. He Asks Who will Go. Like Isaiah and Samuel, our answer should be ‘Here I am Lord, send me.’ (Isaiah 6:4-7)
While the cherubs had four wings, the Seraphim’s have 6. Two, to cover their face, (They cannot even look upon God), Two, to cover their feet, and bodies. Two for flying. (Isaiah 6:2)
“And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne, there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
Cherub and Seraphim are closely related. I do not believe all had four or six wings or four faces. Like humans, they are all individuals. with specific duties and responsibilities. All in the service of the Lord or God.
