Revelation 4:6–8 (ESV)

The Throne in Heaven (Part 2)

and before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal.

And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,

       “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,

who was and is and is to come!”

 

We see in today’s reading, that on each side of the throne are the four living creatures.  To be honest, this would scare me seriously… but I know to expect them.  What are the four living creatures?  Well they are described as: “full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around”.  An artist could let his/her imagination fly with this description.  These are angels, and probably more specifically… cherubim.  They are described in Ezekiel1:4-28 and 10:1-8.  They are not new, but mentioned in Ezekiel.  So, as a believer… expect them!  Listen to what they are saying: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”  Notice that the glory is going to God, not Satan or themselves.  The Lord’s angels give glory to God.

 

I pray: O Lord, I echo the message of the angels “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
