|“||Those entities are the Cherubim, or the "Wise Gods" in my mother's tounge. They are among the highest rankings of angels, representing strength and kingship. The four faces of a cherub are turned to the four cardinal directions, while two of their wings are stretching eternally upwards, upholding the Throne of God. People said when the Watchers fallen from their position, God ordered the Cherubim to replace them as the guardians of men, which they did until this day, protecting the faithful lambs of God from the Devil's influence.||„|

Cherubim are one of the highest ranking of angels in the Christian angel hierarchy, second only to the Seraphim. Their rank among angels is uncertain but they are always categorized in the First Sphere. Some believe them to be an order or class of angels; others hold them to be a class of heavenly beings higher than angels.
The biblical prophet Ezekiel describes the cherubim as a tetrad of living creatures, each having four faces: of a lion, an ox, an eagle, and a man. They are said to have the stature and hands of a man, the feet of a calf, and four eye covered wings. Two of the wings extended upward, meeting above and sustaining the throne of God; while the other two stretched downward and covered the creatures themselves.
