HOPE TO COPE 🦋

“O LORD of Heaven’s Armies, God of Israel, you are enthroned between the mighty cherubim! You alone are God of all the kingdoms of the earth. You alone created the heavens and earth.” Isaiah 37:16
I WAS STANDING IN THE FRONT ROW OF THE CHURCH, A FEW FEET FROM THE WORSHIP TEAM.
WE WERE ALL SINGING PRAISES TO THE LORD WHEN SUDDENLY I FELT A SHIFT IN THE ATMOSPHERE.
RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME A BRIGHT LIGHT FILLED THE ROOM AND A SWIRLING PILLAR CLOUD WAS FLOATING ABOVE US.
I SAW TWO CHERUBIM ANGELS HOVERING, ONE ON EACH SIDE OF THE CLOUD.
I KNEW IN MY SPIRIT THAT IT WAS THE SHEKINAH GLORY OF GOD!
IT DWELLED AMONG US AS THE WORSHIP TEAM CONTINUED TO LEAD US IN SONG.
THE PRESENCE OF GOD WAS SO POWERFUL I COULD BARELY STAND OR BREATHE.
TEARS WERE ROLLING DOWN MY CHEEKS AND MY INSIDES FELT LIKE THEY WERE ON FIRE.
AS QUICKLY AS THE VISION CAME IT EVAPORATED BEFORE MY EYES.
I sat down to catch my breath and write down what I had just witnessed.
I HAVE HAD MANY AMAZING GOD - ENCOUNTERS IN MY LIFE AND I HAVE EVEN EXPERIENCED AND BEEN BLESSED TO SEE MANY ANGELS BEFORE
BUT CHERUBIM SPECIFICALLY, I HAD ONLY WITNESSED ONE OTHER TIME YEARS AGO.
WHY CHERUBIM? I asked, the LORD.
THRONE BEARERS. Was His reply.
I began to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to show me exactly what that meant and what that vision was about.
This is what He showed me:
· CHERUBIM ARE GOD’S THRONE BEARERS AND ATTENDANTS.
· CHERUBIM ARE ANGELIC BEINGS ASSOCIATED WITH THE WORSHIP AND PRAISE OF GOD.
· ONE OF THE MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES OF CHERUBIM IS TO MAGNIFY AND GLORIFY GOD.
· WHEN A BODY OF BELIEVERS ARE UNIFIED IN WORSHIP TOGETHER, IT OPENS UP THE HEAVENS AND USHERS US INTO THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD.
· ORDER AND ALIGNMENT IN THE BODY ATTRACTS THE GLORY OF GOD.
· WHEN WE ENTER INTO THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD, WE ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY.
· CHERUBIM SERVE AS A VISIBLE REMINDER OF THE POWER AND GLORY OF GOD AND HIS LASTING PRESENCE WITH HIS PEOPLE.
SOMEWHERE AMIDST OUR PRAISE AND WORSHIP, HOVERS THE IN-BETWEEN OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
IT IS THERE THAT THE CHERUBIM AND THE HOLY PRESENCE OF GOD ARE WAITING TO MEET WITH US.
“There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the covenant, I will speak with you.” Exodus 25:22
With JESUS there is always HOPE TO COPE,
