Ezekiel 1: 1
Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year,
in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the
month, as I was among the captives by the
river Chebar, that the heavens were opened,
and I saw visions of God.

Ezekiel was a captive of Babylon when he saw the heavens opened.
The Apostle John saw a door opened in heaven, see Rev 4:1. Isaiah
saw the Lord upon his throne in heaven, see Is.6:1. The door (gate)
to heaven opens the vision of the FUTURE. The people on the earth
are living in the past. The redeemed will return back to the future where
God’s throne is situated. There is nothing new under our sun,
see Eccl.1:9,10; 3:15. The things of this earth are a repeat of
what had been covered beneath the waters of Gen.1:2.

Eze.1: 5
Also out of the midst thereof came the
likeness of four living creatures, And
this was their appearance; they had the
likeness of a man.

1: 6
And every one had four faces, and every
one had four wings.

The living creatures in the vision of Ezekiel have four wings,
revealing they are Cherubim, the masculine of the creatures
. The Four Creatures (Man-child) with four wings
represent the HorseMEN (male Riders) of Rev.9:15,16. The
Four Beasts (creatures) in Rev.4:8 have six wings revealing they
are Seraphim, the feminine of the creatures. The Seraphs are
symbolized as Horses in Rev.9:3,7,8. The Horses in Rev.9:8
have hair like women because the Horses (Seraphim) are the
feminine ‘mates’ of the Riders (Cherubim). The Riders
(Lamb: masculine)
and Horses (Brides: feminine) are
perfect mates just as Adam and Eve were perfect mates
in Eden; equal in all things.

As for the likeness of their faces, they four
had the face of a MAN, and the face of a
LION, on the right side: and they four had
the face of an OX on the left side: they four
also had the face of an EAGLE.

The creatures in Ezekiel represent the Lamb who is the perfect
mate to the Beasts (Brides) ROUND ABOUT the throne in
Revelation, revealing that they are one of the same; as Eve was
taken out of Adam and was flesh of his flesh, bone of his bones.
The creatures having a face of a MAN reveals that the creatures
are human, see Rev.9:7. The face of a LION reveals that the Horses
of Rev.9:7 are kings of the beasts, see Rev.9:17. The face of an OX
reveals they are sacrificed for the Word of God upon the altar, see
Rev.6:9. The face of an EAGLE reveals they are the kings of all fowl
that fly in the air, see Rev.9:9; 19:17.

In battle, the Four Beasts (Four Angels) in the MIDST of the throne
are invincible as they are the Riders of the 200,000,000 Horses who
will overthrow the governments of man to make the Lamb, King of
kings of the earth. The four faces being Man, Lion, Ox, and Calf
represent the characteristics of the Four Beasts.

Rev.9:7, And the shapes of the locusts (200,000,000 Horses) were
like unto Horses (feminine; hair as women Rev.9:8) prepared unto
battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold (Queens),
and their faces were as the faces of MEN (In Eze.1:10 the Four
Creatures have faces of a MAN (humans), in Rev.4:7 the Beasts
have also a face of a human.)

Rev.9:9, And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron;
and the sound of their WINGS (EAGLE’S wings) was as the sound
of chariots of many Horses running to battle.

Rev.9:17, And thus I saw the Horses (Four Beasts ROUND ABOUT
the throne)
in the vision, and them (Four Riders: Four Beasts in the
MIDST of the throne)
that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and
of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the Horses were as the heads
of LIONS (The Horses have the heads of LIONS as the Four Beasts
(Horses) of Rev.4:7, and the Four Creatures (Lamb) of
Eze.1:10 have
the face of a LION);
and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and
brimstone (see Rev.11:5 and Jer.5:14).

Rev.19:17, And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud
voice, saying to all the fowls (birds) that fly in the midst of heaven (The
woman of Rev.12:14 has wings of a great eagle; see also Mt.24:28),

Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

The Four Beasts are mentioned as Beasts because God sees all humans
in a degenerate form since the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.
Beginning from the fall of the first two (Adam and Eve) in the garden of
Eden, the nature of mankind has degenerated to that of the beastly creatures
of the field.

The Four Beasts (Four Riders) in the MIDST of the throne in Rev.4:7 and
Eze.1:10, have one of their faces likened unto an Ox (Calf). The Ox (Calf)
is used as a sacrificial animal upon the altar of sacrifice. The Four Creatures
having a face like an Ox (Calf) reveals the Four Creatures will be sacrificed
for the Word of God upon the altar of Rev.6:9. The Four Beasts (Horses)
ROUND ABOUT the throne in Rev.4:6 invited people to ‘Come and see’
the Lamb (Four Riders of Rev.6:1-8) open and reveal the Seven Seals
from the Word of God, see Rev.6:1-8; 22:17.

The Lamb personally comes in sinful flesh (represented by the Four
Creatures in Eze.1:5, and the Four Beasts in the MIDST of the
throne in Rev.4:6)
to reveal the mystery of the Seven Seals unto his
Bride (Four Beasts ROUND ABOUT the throne).

The vision of the Lamb (Four Creatures of Eze.1:5) opening the Seven
Seals in heaven, is an image of the Lamb revealing the Seven Seals upon
the earth. The Four Beasts ROUND ABOUT the throne during the first
four Seals say ‘Come and see.’ However, in the Fifth Seal there are no
more Beasts saying ‘Come and see.’ The reason is, the Four Beasts
ROUND ABOUT the throne have been killed with the Lamb
(Four Riders: Four Beasts in the MIDST of the throne) upon the altar
of the Fifth Seal, see Rev.6:9-11.

The Lamb and all groups of Four Beasts (Bride) gathered from every new
testament generation shall resurrect as 200,000,000 Riders and Horses to
fulfill the Sixth Seal. The Four Creatures of Eze.1:5 (who represent the
Lamb while in the flesh)
are killed and resurrect as Four Cherubs and
will no longer be in the flesh (Creatures). The Four Creatures (Lamb in
human form)
shall become Angelic (Four Angels of Rev.7:1) Beings, see
Eze.10:20. The Four Beasts (humans) round about the throne are the Brides
of the Angels (Super-beings) who are round the earth in Rev.7:1. The Four
Creatures of Eze.1:5 become Four Angels (Lamb in Angelic form) because
they resurrect from Babylon (river Euphrates), see Rev.9:14; Dan.12:2.

In the vision of Eze.1:10, the Four Creatures (representing the Four Riders
of Rev.6:1-8)
which have a face of a Man, Lion, Ox, and Eagle, are also seen
in the vision of the Four Beasts in the MIDST of the throne, see Rev.4:6.
Therefore, the Four Creatures in Eze.1:5 are the same Four Riders that are
killed in Rev.6:9, and thereafter become Cherubs (Lamb in Angelic form)
when they are resurrected, see Eze.10:14. The creatures (representing the
Lamb in human form)
of Ezekiel become Cherubs (Riders of the
200,000,000 Brides)
as they resurrect from the river Euphrates (Babylon),
see Rev.9:14,16. The Cherub (Lamb: masculine perfect mate) and Seraph
(Brides: feminine perfect mate) are one of the same (horse and Rider), as
Adam and Eve were one of the same.

The face of the Ox which is on the Four Creatures (Lamb in human form)
becomes the face of a Cherub (Lamb in Angelic form), revealing the Four
Creatures are no longer in the beastly flesh which the Lamb occupied during
his earthly experience as a human. The vision that Ezekiel saw in chapter
one of the four living creatures progresses into the vision that Ezekiel sees
in chapter ten of the Four Cherubs.

Eze.1:1, Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in
the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of
Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God. (Ezekiel
is by the river of Chebar being a captive of Babylon, prior to Jerusalem
being destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar.)

Eze.10:15, And the cherubims (the Lamb in Angelic form after his
were lifted up. This is the LIVING CREATURE that I
saw by the river CHEBAR (Eze.1:1).

At the time of Eze.10:15, Jerusalem had been destroyed (see Eze.9:6) by
Nebuchadnezzar. The destruction of Jerusalem and her temple typifies the
destruction of the Great Christian Nation at the Sixth Seal by God’s army

Eze.10:20,21,22, This is the LIVING CREATURE (Four Riders of
that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of CHEBAR
; and I knew that THEY (creatures; Beasts) WERE THE
CHERUBIMS (the Four Angels of Rev.7:1). Every one had four faces
apiece, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man
was under their wings. And the likeness of their faces was the same faces
which I saw by the river of Chebar, their appearances and themselves:
they went every one straight forward.

The Four Creatures of Eze.1:5 represent the Lamb who was killed for the
Word of God upon the Fifth Seal. The Four Creatures (Lamb) resurrect
as Cherubs (Riders) and destroy latter day Babylon (Christendom), at
the Sixth Seal, see Eze.9:1,2,6; Rev.7:1,2; 9:4,15.
