Living Creatures

Could the four living creatures be looking at the judgment side of God in the person of Babylon?


Ge 9:12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every LIVING CREATURE that is with you, for perpetual generations:

Isa 13:21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of DOLEFUL CREATURES; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.

Mr 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to EVERY CREATURE.

Ro 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served THE CREATURE more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Ro 8:21 Because THE CREATURE itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Ro 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any OTHER CREATURE, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Re 8:9 And the third part of the CREATURES which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.


Eze 1:13 As for the likeness of the LIVING CREATURES, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the *fire* went forth LIGHTNING.

Ps 140:10 Let *burning coals* fall upon THEM: let them be cast into the *fire*; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

Isa 47:14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the *fire* shall burn THEM; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

Ps 106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the *flame* burned up the WICKED.

Eze 1:14 And the LIVING CREATURES ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of LIGHTING.

Ps 144:6 Cast forth LIGHTNING, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

Isa 30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious VOICE to be heard, and shall shew the LIGHTING down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a *devouring fire*, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.

Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will <make MY WORDS in THY MOUTH *fire*, and this people wood, and it shall *devour them*>.

Heb 12:29 For our GOD is a <*consuming fire*>.


Eze 1:15 Now as I beheld the LIVING CREATURES, behold one WHEEL upon the earth by the living creatures, with his [four faces].

Ps 83:13 O my God, make them like a WHEEL; as the stubble before the wind.

Pr 20:26 A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the WHEEL over them.

Eze 10:9 And when I looked, behold the [four] WHEELS by the CHERUBIMS, one wheel by one cherub, and another wheel by another cherub: and the appearance of the wheels was as the colour of a beryl <08658> stone <068>.

Eze 28:13 Thou (KING OF TYRUS) hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone <068> was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl <08658>, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

Eze 28:14 Thou art the ANOINTED CHERUB that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Re 18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

Rev 18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

Da 10:6 His (certain man) body also was like the beryl <08658>, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as *lamps of fire*, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his WORDS like the *voice of a multitude*.

Da 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his WHEELS as *burning fire*.

Eze 10:10 And as for their appearances, they [four] had one likeness, as if a WHEEL had been in the midst of a WHEEL.

Eze 10:14 And every one had [four faces]: the first face was the face of a [cherub], and the second face was the face of a [man], and the third the face of a [lion], and the fourth the face of an [eagle].

Re 4:7 And the first beast was like a [lion], and the second beast like a [calf], and the third beast had a face as a [man], and the fourth beast was like a [flying eagle].

Eze 1:10 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].

Eze 10:21 Every one had [four faces] apiece, and every one [four WINGS]; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their WINGS.

Pr 23:5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for RICHES certainly make themselves WINGS; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Isa 6:2 Above it stood the SERAPHIMS: each one had SIX WINGS; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

Eze 11:22 Then did the CHERUBIMS lift up their WINGS, and the WHEELS beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

Da 7:3-4 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another…. The first was like a [lion], and had eagle’s WINGS: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a [man’s] heart was given to it….

Da 7:5 And behold ANOTHER BEAST, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, *devour much flesh*.

Re 9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their WINGS was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

Re 9:17 And thus I saw the HORSES in the vision, and them 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; and out of their mouths issued *fire and smoke* and brimstone.


Re 4:8 And the FOUR BEASTS had each of them SIX WINGS about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest <372> not <3756> day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Re 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of {} man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).

Re 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no <3756> rest <372> day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Mt 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest <372>, and findeth none <3756>.


Re 4:9 And when THOSE BEASTS give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

Re 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

Re 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Ro 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Ps 76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall PRAISE THEE: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

Da 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar PRAISE and EXTOL and HONOUR the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Ex 14:17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me HONOUR upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

Ps 99:1 The LORD REIGNETH; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the CHERUBIMS; let the earth be moved.

Ps 99:2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is HIGH above all the people.

Ps 99:3 Let them PRAISE THY great and terrible NAME; for it is holy.


They four living creatures of Rev 4 and Eze 1 appear to be pointing to the judgment side of God. They represent GOD in the person of Babylon in judgment. Just as Christ comes AS a thief to destroy through the unsaved in the Body. And as He allows the church to destroy itself, HE gets glory, honor and praise both from Babylon as she fulfills His purpose judgment as well as the Elect who are redeemed out of Babylon.
