Extended Wings of the Cherubim

The extended wings of the Cherubim in the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle and in the Temple were recognized as a symbol of Jehovah's presence and protection. This expression in the ceremonies of the Royal Master is intended to teach symbolically that he who comes to ask and to seek Divine Truth should begin by placing himself under the protection of Jehovah who is alone the source of Truth.
