The living creatures

Revelation Bible Background

12.13.2017 – New Testament: Rev 4.7

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 4 on December 13, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

In the Spirit, John entered the throne room of God Almighty Himself. John saw God sitting on the throne and surrounding the throne John saw four living creatures, which he pictured as follows,

The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle (Revelation 4.7).

Read Ezekiel 1 and you will see these four living creatures, but there Ezekiel provides more for you to see, such as the creatures carrying about the Lord Himself. Both of these chapters show wonders that we can only picture in our minds, but the time will arrive when we shall see what Ezekiel and John saw.


  • Have you pictured in your mind God on His throne?
  • Do you look forward to that time when you will see Him?
