TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
I am preparing revelation to blow your mind! Dig into My Word. You will know Me in ways you’ve never dreamed. I am multi-faceted. My desire is to show you a facet of Myself that can’t be denied!
Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and the apostle John all write of cherubim – or sometimes they are called seraphim. Make no mistake! These are not chubby babies floating around on clouds. Far from it!
These angelic beings are unlike anything in the Bible. They have six wings and all four sides of their bodies are covered with eyeballs! Now, this is a really big deal.
As they circle the throne above Jesus, they see things He’s done in the past that nobody knows about. They see things in the present and things in the future, and it blows their minds!
What’s even cooler is that cherubim have one head, but four faces that face north, south, east and west. The first face of this tripped out creature is a lion. The second is an ox, the third a man, and the fourth is the face of an eagle.
Why is this significant? Because the four faces relate to Jesus.
The Lion is Him as your King – your ruler and warrior. When Jesus shows up as a lion, He’s passionate, untamed, majestic and powerful. This is the face of Jesus in the book of Matthew.
The face of the ox is Jesus as a servant, wonder working, docile and practical. He’s there for you – faithful, hardworking, intentional and a burden bearer. That’s how the Book of Mark introduces Him.
The face of a man is all about the human side of Jesus that can relate to us in all our joy and suffering. It’s the side of Jesus that is your friend. He’s emotional, personal and family. The book of Luke describes Jesus like this.
Then there’s John. John experienced Jesus as straight-up God – the face of the eagle. That’s the supernatural, all-powerful, eternal side of Jesus. He’s mysterious, up there, above the clouds.
Do you know Jesus like this? If you don’t, open the Book and go after that intimate knowledge of His four faces. It’s the honor of Kings to search out a matter. He wants to be found!
The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”
– Revelation 4:8
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BEGIN SEARCHING OUT THE FOUR FACES OF JESUS. HE IS ULTIMATELY COMPLEX AND UNDENIABLY PERSONAL!
