Welcome.  Last week we read that angels sometimes appear as real people.  Now let’s read how angels are de-
scribed in the heavenly realm.

Isaiah 6:1-2  I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple.
Above him stood the seraphim (high ranking angel),  each one had six wings:  with two wings they
covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.

The seraphim Angels covered their faces because God is completely holy.  They could not look upon him.  They
covered their feet because they were on holy ground; in God’s presence.  This is similar to Exodus 3:5 and
Joshua 5:15 when Moses and Joshua were standing on holy ground and were told to remove their sandals.  This
is a sign of respect.

Here is another scripture describing angels with wings.

Exodus 25:20  The cherubim (also high ranking angels) are to have their wings spread upward, over-
shadowing the cover with them.

This scripture describes two angels statues attached to the cover of the Arc of the Covenant (contained the
10 commandments).

Although the above two scriptures describe the angels in heaven as having wings, I’m not sure they really do.  The
bible is full of symbolism.  In the same way that God doesn’t really sit on a thrown (he is an omnipresent spiritual
being), I don’t think that angels really fly with wings.  Angels are spiritual beings that are not omnipresent.
As we read in Angels 5, angels can take many forms.  Angels appeared as fire, they appeared as
humans, they appeared as beings of light.  Angels can travel from one dimension to another
(earthly and heavenly).

Angel wings might be symbolic of their great covering or protection with wings open wide?  Also, their wings might
be symbolic of their great comfort as to wrap you in their wings?

Next week we will read about the hierarchy of angels.

Thank you so much for studying.  God bless.



Heaven 3

So far we have read that heaven is a real place and that God lives in heaven or the heavenly realm.  But does God
live outside of heaven as well?  Before we go any farther, let’s make sure we have a correct perception of God.

John 4:24  God is Spirit, and his worshippers must worship him in spirit and in truth.

This scripture tells us that God is a Spirit just like the Holy Spirit is a Spirit.  Is God also omnipresent like the
Holy Spirit?

Jeremiah 23:23  “Am I only a God nearby,” declares the Lord, “and not a God far away?  Can anyone hide in secret
places so that I cannot see him?” declares the Lord.  “Do not I fill heaven and earth?”  declares the Lord.

God, a Spirit, just like the Holy Spirit is omnipresent.  They are both everywhere at all times.  Therefore, God
is present everywhere in heaven and everywhere outside of heaven.  He is everywhere.  God does not
have a right hand or left hand or a big nose or a small nose.  He is a spiritual being and not a person defined by a
throne.  The scriptures in Heaven 2, 1 Kings 22:19 and Ephesians 1:20, that states God is on a throne or Jesus is
at the right hand of God are NOT LITERAL.

Therefore, God the Father is a Spirit that lives in heaven and outside of heaven, just like the
Holy Spirit.  They live and dwell everywhere at all times.  They are omnipresent.

Next week, we will read where heaven is located.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
