Fear Not: Cherubim vs. Seraphim

Ezekiel SHARP

Why do sinful human beings think of angels as cute little bambini, lovable old bumbling frumps, androgynous pretty-boys and feathered friends? The Bible depicts them as terrifying messengers, who fill their startled beholders with panic and sickness unto dread. In Ezekiel, they are described as freaky frightening extraterrestrial beings with multiple faces (beast and human), as well as having myriad eyes covering their fiery bodies. Angels must first allay the fears of the humans they encounter before they are able to get their message across.

Who & what exactly are the messengers of Heaven ?

Angelic Wars

War Craters Mars

To speculate a bit further, perhaps there is some reason to suppose that Mars was the site of an ancient angelic “war” which was part of a great Satanic plan to destroy the line of Eve that would lead to Messiah and to establish his (Satan’s) own total and final dominion over mankind. One of the mysteries in the geophysics of the planets is that most cratering on the moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars seems to have occurred early in the history of these bodies. “Early bombardment” seems to have decreased greatly after about a billion years or so of radio-clock time had elapsed. If there were an angelic war on Mars long ago (and this of course is only speculation), it seems to us that it was not limited to Mars, but quite likely involved Venus and at least Mercury and the moon as well. Some have even wondered if the asteroid belt beyond Mars is indeed all that is left of a planet destroyed in an ancient war. A possible modified model of the solar system is this: All the planets (not just earth) were created “good;” that is, in pristine, “inhabitable” condition, but all except earth have been drastically altered by the angelic wars of eons past. Angelic warfare has never ceased since the fall of Lucifer, and angelic wars are not over yet. This “threat from the heavens” is still with us, so we not only have the dim, ancient past to worry about; we have our own future to be ready for.
