The cherubim rank second amongst all the angels and are the biblical protectors of the entry gate to the Garden of Eden.
You might know them as fluffy and chubby winged children that make a regular appearance on cards for Valentine’s Day. In the Bible, they are described as appearing similar to winged men, not babies. Or, sometimes, they look like animals or strange beings having 4 faces.
The Cherubs rank only below the Seraphs in the Angels Hierarchy. They are associated with God’s greatness and the protection of His throne. As such, they are also known as Throne Angels.
In the Holy Scriptures, they also function as guardians who keep Adam and Eve from re-entering Eden, following their fall. This is why they have a strong association with “protection” and warding off evil.
The Many Facets Of The Cherubs
If the sacred texts are taken as reference, the cherubs would appear to be hybrid creatures having both animal and human parts. As such, they may have 4 heads at the same time – an eagle’s, an ox’s, a lion’s, and a man’s head. The popular “baby” image is believed to be an attempt to popularize the Cherubs
The exact origin is shrouded in uncertainty similar to their appearance. Nevertheless, research suggests that the term “kherub” representing Benediction or “being blessed” might have some clues. However, several texts talk about them being shrouded in mystery. The primary reason is their Prince Regent – Raziel is the angel governing mysteries. Raziel in Hebrew means “God’s secret”.
The other Cherubim are Hekamiah, Hariel, Mebabel, Yeslael, Hahahiah, Laoviah, Aladiah, and Haziel. The people whom they rule over usually have common characteristics, like optimistic expectations. Additionally, they are extremely emotional and have stable, deep feelings. They are usually good people who are also loyal, generous, affectionate, and at times, shy. These people have big hearts capable of forgiving a lot.
The Celestial Duty Of The Cherubs And Their Identity
Sometimes, the Archangel Metatron supervises the Cherubs’ work. Their work is to record every deed, word and thought in the heavenly archive of the universe. These teams notice everything that has already happened, that is happening, and that will take place.
Similar to other angels, cherubs suffer when recording bad decisions. However, they celebrate good choices likewise. They are magnificent beings that are much more powerful than what their popular appearance may convey.
