Cherubim

The Bible talks a lot about the spiritual realm, and about angels and demons. Angels are servants of God and demons are in servants of Satan and in rebellion against God`s Kingdom. Cherubim are only mentioned a few times in the Bible. The prophet Ezekiel described Cherubim based on a vision, they have four faces: a man, an ox, a lion, and an eagle. Gold Cherubim were carved upon the lid (Mercy seat) of the Ark of the Covenant, and blood was sprinkled between them by the high priest on Yom Kippur. Ezekiel also mentioned that Satan was a Cherub before he fell. There have been numerous archaeological discoveries of carved Cherubim used to guard entrances in pagan temples. The great winged bulls of ancient Assyria can be seen today in the British Museum in London.
