Cherubims are the first angels mentioned in the Bible. We have many drawings of them as babies with wings. This could not be farther from the truth. In Genesis 3:24 we find the Lord God placed Cherubims at the east end of the Garden to protect the Tree of Life, with a flaming sword.
In Exodus 25:18,22, in the building of the Tabernacle, the Lord had Moses put upon the Mercy Seat 2 Cherubims with wings extended over the Mercy Seat. The Lord would speak to the high Priest from between the Cherubims.
The Lord had the curtains of the Tabernacle to have renderings of Cherubs. In 2 Samuel 6:2, we find the Lord of Hosts dwells between the Cherubims. In Samuel 22:11, the Lord rides upon a Cherub.
When Solomon built the New Temple, in the place where the high priest spoke with the Lord he had 2 giant .charubims built. The Walls were engraved with the images of Cherubims.
In Ezekiel 10-41, we find some Cherubs that had 4 faces, 4 wings, and 4 wheels. The face of a Cherub, a man, a lion, and an eagle. The Glory of God was over the cherubims.
We find the cherubs standing before and protecting the Tree of Life from all who have not given their lives to Him. He speaks to us from between them.
