Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Angels and Cherubim

Hey Uncle John,

I read the email that Gail sent to you about angels, and I was wondering “what is the difference between angels and cherubims?”



Hello Dear Abigail.

There may be many differences between cherubs and angels of which we are ignorant. But one notable difference is that angels do NOT have wings. Cherubs do. Angels look like ordinary humans. Cherubs most certainly do not. The Bible says that we at times meet angels and do not know it (because they look like one of us), but if a cherub ever knocked at your door, you would not mistake him for a human. They have wings, two or four faces, living wheels attached to them, and lightning bolts shooting out.

Thanks for the question. And watch out for angels! They are watching out for you.

Uncle John
