Thrones

The Thrones are a class of celestial beings mentioned by Paul of Tarsus in Colossians 1:16 (New Testament) and related to the throne of God. They are living symbols of God’s justice and authority. The corresponding order of angels in Judaism is called the Erelim, which translates to ‘valiant ones,’ ‘heroes,’ or ‘warriors’. The Ophanim (Wheels or Galgallin) is a class of higher liberated celestial beings, under many Christian angelic hierarchies, that are also known as the ‘Thrones,’ from Daniel 7:9 (Old Testament). They are the carriers of the throne of God, hence the name. They are said to be wheels within wheels covered in eyes.

Thrones are angels of the Third Order (first sphere) and are beings of tremendous power and movement.  God’s Spirit is shown in a certain manner to these angels, who in turn pass on the message to men and the inferior angels. They create, channel and collect incoming and outgoing positive energies. Dispensation of justice is important to the Thrones and they send healing energies to victims while shining a light on injustice to bring its presence to our attention.

Like their counterparts in the second angelic triad, they come the closest of all Angels to spiritual perfection and emanate the light of God with mirror-like goodness. They, despite their greatness, are intensely humble, an attribute that allows them to dispense justice with perfect objectivity and without fear of pride or ambition. Because they are living symbols of God’s justice and authority, they are called Thrones and have as one of their symbols the throne.
