Even so the L<small>ORD</small> instructed [[Moses]] to fashion cherubim of gold as focuses of these true angelic guardians of the mercy seat of the [[ark of the covenant]].<ref>Exod. 25:17–22.</ref> Traditionally, God dwelt between the cherubim and spoke to Moses from the mercy seat—the altar of the I AM Presence, whose Law, engraven on tablets of stone, was carried in the ark from place to place in their wilderness wanderings.

[[David]] describes the L<small>ORD</small> riding upon a cherub, flying upon the wings of the wind.<ref>II Sam. 22:11.</ref> Ezekiel portrays the cherubim as four-winged, four-faced creatures accompanied by whirling wheels.<ref>Ezek. 1, 10.</ref> The cherub may be identified with the winged ''karibu'', “intercessor” in Mesopotamian texts, portrayed as a sphinx, griffin, or winged human creature. Throughout cosmos, the wise and strong cherubim are found in manifold aspects of service to God and his offspring.

The cherubim guard the flame of the ark of the covenant between God and man, focused in the [[Great Central Sun]]. They keep the way of the Tree of Life, both in the [[City Foursquare]] and in every son and daughter of God. “And they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.”<ref>Rev. 4:8.</ref>
