Heavenly Hierarchy

According to the Hebrews the universe is a hierarchy. The Christians adopted this Jewish model of the Cosmos in which God is both at the center and at the highest point of the hierarchy. Entities radiate outwards from His Presence.

“Angels are arranged on three descending levels. Each level has three ranks or Orders. The highest Triad is made up of the Seraphim, The Cherubim and the Thrones. These are in direct communion with the Divine Unity and receive God’s unfiltered Illumination.

“The next triad orbiting God is composed of the Dominations. Virtues and Powers who receive the Divine Illumination from the first Triad and then in turn, transmit it to the lowest triad – the Principalities, Archangels and Angels. Then they convey that illumination to us mortal humans.” Malcolm Godwin from Angels An Endangered Species

“This Diagram shows the inner orbits of the Primary Triad resonanting Love (the Seraphim) and Knowledge (the Cherubim). These subtle vibrations issue from the heat of their wings and the sound of their voices and yet remains essentially immaterial and insubstantial. However the subsequent “orbit” of the Ofanim is a region where form and substance begin to materialize. It shows the outward movement from the central Divinity which is pure Thought. Thought slows down as it moves from the source and becomes Light, which in turn decelerates to become Heat which condenses into matter.” Angels an Endangered Species
