 " The Mystery of Ezekiel’s and John’s Vision OT and NT - Cherubim "
Twelve Day Circle and Job 38:31-33

Four Living Creatures
   The four faces of each of the cherubim (Ezek. 1:10) stand for the four "excellencies" of the created order: the lion, the greatest of the wild beasts; the eagle, the greatest of the birds; the ox, the greatest of the domestic beast; and man, the crown of creation. Ezekiel sees over the heads of the cherubim, the throne of the God, who is thus absolutely sovereign over his whole creation.
   In Psalm 99:1 "The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble; he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved." An OT allusion to the Lord as seated or enthroned between the cherubim, which is a metaphor of his sovereignty.
   Likewise in Psalm 18:10 "And he rode upon the cherub, and he did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind," showing that all creation is subject to his sovereignty and the powers at his disposal.
   To sum up: the cherubim are the living chariots or carriers of God when appearing to men, in winged human form with the faces of lion, ox, man and eagle. They never come close to men.
    In the Philippine esoteric system, the carriers of God represents the four evangelists of the New Testament...
