William Blake The Whirlwind: Ezekiel's Vision of the Cherubim and Eyed Wheels circa 1803-1805
Cherubim have perfect knowledge of God, surpassed only by the love of the Seraphim. They were not described as the cute little "cupid-like" angels depicted by painters, but instead as having four appearances: that of a human, ox, lion, and eagle.
The Angel of the week this week is a CHERUBIM. Winged creatures who support the Throne of God, or act as guardian spirits. They appear in the Bible (the book of Ezekiel) as bearing the throne and chariot of God, and hence later conceived as a type of angels. They are also mentioned in Genesis 3:24 as guardians (or protectors) of the Garden of Eden. They were placed at the gates of the Garden to prevent humans from re-entering and thus gaining access to the Tree of Life.
