Q u e s t i o n s..A b o u t..S c r i p t u r e s
pa g e..3 5

-Proverbs 19:17 "He that has pity upon the poor lends.(original 'join').unto the LORD and that which he has given will he pay him again.".How is pitying the poor, lending to the Lord?
 
-Revelation 3:5 If the Creator never leaves us or forsakes us, how is it possible for us to be blotted out of His Book of Life where our names are written as belonging to Him?

It seems that right from the beginning the realm of the Creator recorded information about the men and women that were created.(examples:.Exodus 32:31,32; Ezekiel 9:4), because they were not just created, they were also as good as being in eternity with God. That is, they.(who.were they?).were already saved and called, to be sure; their overall purpose being set before they became physical and for this, they existed prior to physicality:.2Timothy 1:9; Psalms 69:28; Philippians 4:3; Revelation 17:8; 20:12; Luke 10:20. This recording of one's acts is to be used.
   Also, Daniel 7:10; 12:1; Malachi 3:17; Matthew 10:32; Luke 12:8.


-Revelation 3:5 How are we to overcome as it talks about in this verse?

The word."overcome".here means get the victory over. And how does this come about? 1John 5:4.


-Revelation 3:22  What does this mean?

Here,."an ear that has an ear to hear".is a way of saying 'a person inclined to take to heart things important to his life'; whereas, a fool is one with disregard for things realistic which could affect his life for the better, preferring instead a pathway of frivolity, excess, exaggeration and speculative imagination.

-Isaiah 6:2 Is a seraphim an angel?

Seraphims are powerful spirit beings that attend upon God.
   The word 'seraphim' means."fiery serpent", in allusion, as is supposed, to their burning love. They are represented as."standing".above the Lord as he sat upon his throne, which means He is in charge of the entire universe, in charge of all things both visible and invisible, including things seen, things known and things yet to be found out.

Seraphims are ready to carry out purposes of the Creator:.Isaiah 6:1-3. Their form appears to have been human with the addition of wings. Most probably they are an order of heavenly beings along the same lines in their nature as cherubim and engaged in much the same type of service around God's Throne. Concise Bible Dictionary:."The distinction between seraphim and cherubim may be that, while the former bear witness to God's holiness, that is, to His nature, in the latter are exhibited the principles of God's righteous government on the earth. The 'living creatures' of Revelation 4:8 combine the characteristics of both cherubim and seraphim."

Seraphims have three sets of wings. With one pair they covered the face.(perhaps a token of reverence); another pair was used to cover the feet.(perhaps a token of humility); the third being used as they flew on their missions.(a symbol of their purpose as their wings aren't necessary to fly through air, no air is there, it's a spirit world of different frequencies)

An angel on the other hand is a messenger that attends to us humans. 

The seraphim.(Isaiah 6:2).with six wings and one face differ from the cherubim with four wings.(in the ancient physical temple they were depicted as having only two).and four faces:.Ezekiel 1:5-12. See 'Angels' see 'Cherubim' see 'four living creatures'.


-Ezekiel 1:5-27 What are these four living creatures?

The description here is similar to Ezekiel 10th chapter where it says that they are cherubim:.Ezekiel 10:20 "This is the living creature.(word."creature".not in original).that I saw under.(word."under".not in original).the God of Israel.(who's Israel?).by the river of Chebar and I knew that they were the cherubims.".They were a type of angels, as were the seraphim, of the Great Infinite One. Angels have many shapes and can take any form.(Numbers 22:21-35), even today.

The original simply is."living, life; see, seeing; God; Israel; river, flood, streams; Chebar, already, now; know, knew; cherubims". No doubt the translators did the best they could. You figure it out! Could be.and probably.maans:."I saw a representation of the living God of Israel when I was at the River of Chebar and these were cherubims". Hebrew language requires some understanding about vowels.

The 'living creatures' in.Revelation 4th chapter combine the characteristics of both cherubim and seraphim. In Revelation 4:8 the four living creatures have each six wings with eyes all over. Their appearance was stunning:.Ezekiel 1:5-27

And then there's the creatures having wheels with eyes:.Ezekiel 10:12-20; 11:22.

Strange creatures there are in the fabulous family of the Creator and of course they all have a purpose.

Our purpose is to become fully aligned with the goodness of the universe:.1John 2:20. In addition, those on the upper levels of higher consciousness will be most effective in straightening out those who just can't seem to get out of the rut they may be in, to get out of the way they have always lived based upon ordinary consciousness:.Isaiah 30:18-21 "And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you...for the LORD is a God of judgment. Blessed are all they that wait for him...thou shalt weep no more. He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry...yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left."

-Exodus 25:20 What are cherubim.(plural of cherub)?

Comprised from Easton's Bible Dictionary:."cherub, plural cherubim, the name of certain figures frequently mentioned in Scripture.

"They are first mentioned in connection with the expulsion of our first parents from Eden:.Genesis 3:24.

"They are next mentioned when Moses was commanded to provide furniture for the tabernacle:.Exodus 25:17-21; 26:1,31.

"Creator promised to commune with Moses."from between the cherubim":.Exodus 25:22. This expression was afterwards used to denote the Divine abode and presence.

"In Ezekiel's vision.(Ezekiel 10:1-20).of these living creatures, they support the goings on at throne of God. From Ezekiel's description of them.(Ezekiel 1;10; 41:18,19), they are unlike any real object we see in nature, instead having compound features and properties of several animals.

"Two cherubim were placed on the mercy seat of the ark; two of colossal size overshadowed it in Solomon's temple. Ezekiel.(Ezekiel 1:1-28).speaks of four and this number of "living creatures" is mentioned in Revelation 4:6.

Those on the ark are called the "cherubim of glory".(Hebrews 9:5), i.e., of the Shechinah or cloud of glory, for on them the visible glory of God rested. They were placed one at each end of the mercy seat, with wings stretched upward and their faces "toward each other and toward the mercy seat". They were anointed with holy oil, like the ark itself and the other sacred furniture.

"The cherubim were intended to represent spiritual existences in immediate contact with Jehovah. Some have regarded them as symbolical of the chief ruling power by which God carries on his operations in providence:.Psalms 18:10.

"Others interpret them as having reference to the redemption of men and as symbolizing the great rulers or ministers of the church. Many other opinions have been held regarding them, which need not be referred to here. On the whole, it seems to be most satisfactory to regard the interpretation of the symbol to be variable, as is the symbol itself.

"Their office was 1) on the expulsion of our first parents from Eden, to prevent all access to the tree of life; 2) to form the throne and chariot of the Creator in his manifestation of himself on Earth. He dwells between and sits on the cherubim:.1Samuel 4:4; Psalms 80:1; Ezekiel 1:25-28."

"Cherubim appear differently. They appear with 2 faces in Ezekiel's vision in Ezekiel 41:18. They appear with 4 in Ezekiel 1:10. The cherubim appear with stiff unbending legs in Ezekiel 1:7.

Read about the incredible images Ezekiel became acquainted with in this book of the Bible and consider what it must look like at the Throne of this all powerful loving Infinite Being. Through the pages of the Bible we have a glimpse.".1Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly..."
