Motives—not specifically found within scripture though it is historically associated with the word moved
Definition: that which moves a man to do what he does
Interesting fact: Only God knows the true and complete motives behind any man’s actions. When young David arrived to the battlefield to check on his brothers, Eliab said, “I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle” (1 Samuel 17:28). Eliab judged by the outward appearance because he certainly did not know that David was there by an appointment of the Lord.
Bible study tip: The Bible references various spiritual beings. We must be careful not to assume that those who are called by distinct or unique names are one and the same. For example, we should not assume that angels are cherubims, or that cherubims are seraphims, or that any of these are “the archangel” (Jude 1:9). Not only should we not assume their identities are the same, neither should we assume that they share the same characteristics.
