Seraphim Angels occupy the first position in the angelic hierarchy, they are so important because they are the angels closest to God. The Seraphim are considered the oldest angels, endowed with much wisdom and responsibility. They possess the purifying and illuminating powers of humanity and are recognized as the angels of light, love and fire. Seraphim angels worship God continually and are extremely obedient to him. Seraphim angels are always represented as 6-winged creatures surrounded by fire, and this happens for two reasons:
Fire – origin of the name
Seraph derives from the Hebrew word Saraf, which means to burn. Scholars say that the name is an allusion to the biblical traditions in which God is compared to a fire, so the Seraphim are represented surrounded by fire. This is the origin most widely accepted by experts, but many other translations of the word Seraphim have already been made, some argue that Seraph can mean (fiery serpent) or (aspide Flying) while other translators choose (exalted or noble beings).
The origin of the 6 wings
The 3 pairs of wings with which the seraphim angels are represented come from the only passage in the Bible that mentions these angels. It is in Isaiah 6: 2-4 and says: Seraphim were above him; each had six wings; with two they covered their faces and with two they covered their feet and with two they flew. And they shouted to each other, saying: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts, all the earth is full of his glory. And the door jambs moved to the voice of the one who was crying, and the house was full of smoke. The seraphim angels flew around the throne where God sang praises as they drew particular attention to the glory and majesty of God.
Metatron Prince of the Seraphim Angels
The Prince of Seraphim is Metatron the king of angels. He is the greatest angel, the supreme angel who governs the forces of creation for the benefit of all the inhabitants of the earth. As the supreme angel, he is the divine spokesman mediating God with humanity. Metatron is a powerful angel, represented with 12 pairs of 6 wings, which shows all its stature. Their powers are command and abundance and their duties are similar to other angels.
Seraphim Angels are 8: Vehulah – Jeliel – Sitael – Elemiah – Mahasiah – Lelahel – Achaiah – Cahethel.
