So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
-Angel is written as malak in Hebrew & it means envoy. Angels have the following attributes: – They are spirits, are powerful, were created by God to serve Him & His children, have no sex, are immortal, have different ranks & functions. They rank as follows:- Angel of the Lord, Archangels, Principalities, Cherubim & Seraphim.
-After Adam disobeyed, God drove him out of the garden of Eden & placed cherubim to guard the way to the tree of life. In Exo 25:22, two cherubim are seen on the ark of the Testimony protecting the law given to Moses. Cherubim are described by Ezekiel to have four wings with human like hands beneath the wings, four wheels, eyes all over their bodies, feet like a calf’s & four heads in the likeness of a man, lion, ox & eagle representing each ones characteristics i.e. intelligence, power, obedience, speed & sight in that order. Again the glory of the God of Israel is seen above them (Ezek 10:19). Therefore, we can conclude that cherubim protect the holiness of God.
We give You thanks Father, for the peace that we have experienced in our nation during the election period. We ask You to continue giving us peace & protect us from any form of harm. You died on cross for us so that Your glory may be revealed in us. We ask You to cleanse us from all unrighteousness & kindle the fire of Your love in our hearts that Your holiness may always dwell in us. All glory & praise belongs to You, Lord. Amen
