is pitying the poor, lending to the Lord?

It seems that right from

6:2 Is a seraphim an angel?
Seraphims are powerful spirit
beings that attend upon God.
The word 'seraphim'
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
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
of their purpose as their wings aren't necessary to fly through air, no
air is there, it's a spirit
of different frequencies).
An angel on
the other hand is a messenger that attends to us humans.
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
1:5-12. See 'Angels' see 'Cherubim'
see 'four living creatures'.
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
I saw under.(word."under".not
God of Israel.(who's
the river of Chebar and I knew that they were the cherubims.".They
were a type of angels, as were the seraphim, of
Great Infinite One. Angels have many
shapes and can take any form.(Numbers
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
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
And then there's the creatures
having wheels with eyes:.Ezekiel
Strange creatures there are
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
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."
25:20 What are cherubim.(plural
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
"They are next mentioned
when Moses was commanded to provide furniture for the tabernacle:.Exodus
"Creator promised to commune
between the cherubim":.Exodus

Ezekiel's description of them.(Ezekiel
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
of four and this number of "living creatures" is mentioned in Revelation
Those on the ark are called
the "cherubim of glory".(Hebrews
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
Some have regarded them as symbolical of the chief ruling power by which
God carries on his operations in providence:.Psalms
"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
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
