Wesley's Notes for Revelation 4:7

4:7 And the first - Just such were the four cherubim in Ezekiel, who supported the moving throne of God; whereas each of those that overshadowed the mercy - seat in the holy of holies had all these four faces: whence a late great man supposes them to have been emblematic of the Trinity, and the incarnation of the second Person. A flying eagle - That is, with wings expanded.

 

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 4:7

Re 4:7 The first creature [was] like a lion. It looked "like" a lion, but was not a lion. It had other characteristics. The second beast like a calf. Had a body similar to that of the ox. The third beast had a face as a man. Otherwise its structure differed from that of men. The fourth beast [was] like a flying eagle. It will be seen that four departments of animated nature are represented. That of the wild beasts of prey, that of domestic animals, the human species, and the fowls of the air. Each is represented by what, in the eyes of a Hebrew, would be regarded as its highest type.

Who are these 4 beasts in our understanding. What do they represent in really Christian life. Are they God glory?

all Beasts in Dan and Rev Are at least two things one ting is a nation all beasts are a nation properly identifying which one is which is the only way to understand everything in this prophecy should you believe a lie then your understanding will be flawed it you see and believe the truth then all the secrets shall be granted to your understanding so read on with caution as this is a sealed book to anyone who does not know the truth but to all who have not believed lies it is give for their understanding should they continue to not dwell in a lie
