Bible Questions Series

Lloyd asks:

About the protectors or guardians of the mercy seat in the first world age. What was the reason for these guards and from what was the mercy seat being protected?

Lloyd

Answer:

Attack!!! The Mercy Seat, as well as the very Throne of God is always protected! Since you mention the first earth age I assume that you know what happened to cause God to destroy that age and then cause our present one to be. But for the benefit of a newer student I will briefly touch on it.

In the first earth age (chronologically occurring between {Gen 1:1 and 1:2} (actually in the middle of verse 2) we were all with God in spiritual bodies: “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy” {Job 38:7}.

Job 38:4-7 (God speaking to Job)

4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (KJV)

Satan, then called Lucifer, rebelled against God and drew one-third of God’s children, us (the whole Host: “Host of Heaven” {Gen 2:1}. “morning stars” {Job 38:7}. “stars of Heaven” {Rev 12:4}) with him in an overthrow attempt against God, mentioned in {Rev 12:4a (first half of verse 4)}. God put down the rebellion and abruptly terminated that first earth age {Jer 4:23-26 & 2nd Peter 3:5-6}, and paved the way for this second earth age (our present one) {Jer 4:27 & 2nd Peter 3:7}.

In this second earth age we are all born of woman innocent of any sin from before, nor can we see beyond the ‘veil’ back into the first earth (though some have flashes. Have you ever felt like something happened before?) and we are to decide whether to follow God through Jesus Christ or satan through the world. This is NOT reincarnation! There is no such thing as reincarnation! We can only pass through each earth age once: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” {Heb 9:27}. There is very little written of that first earth age, but there are some things about it in the Scriptures. See:

The Mercy Seat is depicted on the Ark of the Covenant with two Cherubim’s (protecting angels) on the lid.

Exod 25:18-21 (God speaking)

18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

20 And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. (KJV)

Cherubim are a class of Angels, satan was a Cherubim before pride made him fall. Yes, satan once protected the Mercy Seat in Heaven, but he didn’t want to protect the Mercy Seat, he wanted to sit on it, as Christ, as God:

Ezek 28:12-19 (God speaking)

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus [another of satan’s many many names] , and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more. [perished – gone completely (though not yet fulfilled) Hence, another of satan’s many names: “the son of perdition” {2nd Thes 2:3}] (KJV)

In Heaven, the throne of God is also protected and seved by another class of Angels, these are called “Zoon” in the Greek, but is translated to “beasts” in the English Bible. Do not confuse these with evil beasts, for these ‘beasts’ are good:

Rev 4:6-9

6 And before the throne [of God in Heaven] there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.

7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever (KJV)

Does that help answer your question? I know this isn’t commonly taught, but then, a lot of things in God’s Word aren’t commonly taught in the corrupted end-time churches. I trust that the Scriptures themselves answered your question.

God Bless!
