THE SERAPHIM: The power of the Seraphim is unimaginable for a human spirit. If they are made of fire, their entire being is constantly consumed by the love and light of God. No living creature, whether spiritual or material, human or angelic, can see God face to face without being destroyed. That is why the Seraphim cover their faces with their wings: despite their power, God's pure energy would destroy them instantly if they contemplated it directly. Even for the highest class of angels, God remains a mystery.
