THE FOUR LIVING CREATURES

Updated: Nov 6, 2023


Ezekiel Has an Open Vision of Heaven


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 of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.


2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,

3 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.

4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

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.

10 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.


  • Man – Earth is the Focus

  • Lion – Rule in the earth is the Kingdom Plan

  • Ox – Serve the people is the Ministry

  • Eagle – Vision is for God’s purpose and Goal

QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION:


1. What was your reaction to seeing the heavens open, and what did you see?

2. What do the four living creatures symbolize as the four faces of God?

3. What is the purpose or function of each face on the earth today?

4. How have you seen God systematically completing BAM to be a representative of the

heavenly vision on the earth today?

5. What was your “Aha moment”?


Looking forward to our discussion


In His Service,


Bishop Bill

Sheri, I love your exuberant post! Full of excitement which is where we should be after seeing beyond the curtain! Absolutely when we worship, it affects the whole place which was evident on Wednesday night. God took notice because we ALL worshipped. I love your statement, "We move with unity in His way, in His time". BAM really has come together to be in unity and now we're learning to join with heaven and worship and praise in ways we have not. Great post!

Truly in awe! Seeing the constancy of God amazes me. His plan, focus, the how and the where we’re going have never changed.


2. What do the four living creatures symbolize as the four faces of God?

The four living creatures symbolize the attributes of God and how He moves.

Man- earth is the focus-servant hood

Lion- rule in the earth is the Kingdom plan-leadership

Agreed on your AHA, Amanda. Each of the living creatures have different outlooks/capabilities/forms of being and doing they still move as one. Each joint supplying! Different gifts and talents but still a united presentation. Looking forward to each of us moving in the fullness of our God-given gifts, making our individual callings sure so we're ready to be fit together as one powerful united presentation of Heaven on earth.

Great message Bishop as usual! When you hear from God, it will always be great!!!


I'm thankful the message of heaven is being preached again! I saw anew, that God has His earthly temple set up to do what He wants done in the earth. The four faces (beasts) are divine in nature, now God gave us the authority to operate in that understanding and do as He is doing in heaven. Let us not fall for the fleshy nature during this time...


The four faces symbolize God's perfection of His sight, His Plan (since the beginning), His serve in the earth, and the ultimate goal of Him Ruling and Reign as God of the earth again! As we all…

Hi Andrew, Amen: "I saw anew, that God has His earthly temple set up to do what He wants done in the earth. The four faces (beasts) are divine in nature, now God gave us the authority to operate in that understanding and do as He is doing in heaven. Yes, it is time: The four faces symbolize God's perfection of His sight, His Plan (since the beginning), His serve in the earth, and the ultimate goal of Him Ruling and Reign as God of the earth again! As we all find our place in this perfect Will of the Father; He will rise up again and be our God, and we will be His people. I love your aha:…

What a great word Bishop!


1 I definitely see that God has not changed his mind or the purpose that He has! It is amazing that between Ezekiel and John that nothing had changed and all through those years between. Just as Rev Connie said no worship no reign I am blessed not only we have a great worship team that brings us into His presence.


2 I love how the four faces represent the sources and attributes of his kingdom. And how they never separate themselves to go in one of the directions. Division is definitely one of the areas that has caused separation in the church I am so blessed to see that we desire to be strong…

What was your reaction to seeing the heavens open and what did you see?


I saw "love" for his people and I saw "faith" faith comes from the heart (Rom)10:10) God looks on the heart not our actions. And serving God with faith and being obedient to his "word"


What are the Four living creatures symbolised as the four faces of God?


It's the four evangelists. The four faces and four arms. Each face of his points to a direction. His hands hold no weapons., rather symbols of knowledge and creation.


What is the purpose of function of each face on the earth today?


:The Lion man who's heart is like a lion: An eagle files upward,"and" eyes face, into…

And have Hurd countless testimonys of people God has heeld because God shows up what we seek him out and with the help of the church laying hands on people and the Internet as well.our ministry Team. That I have full faith in That God is using Bam as a standard above some of the other teachings that churches choose not to teach their churches. I pray that the church will realize that it's time to go back and start teaching the full gospel to be obedient to God."
