Peace to you.
The 4 living creatures are the living words (“angels”….or rather “messengers”) of the Scriptures. The God-breathed Scriptures are living and are beneficial and have 4 faces:
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for (Greek: “pros” meaning “toward, facing, face”)
doctrine**, for (“pros” : facing) reproof*, for (“pros”) correction,
for (“pros”) instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be
complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Each has a “face” such as an ox for teaching, etc.
The Scriptures that are God-breathed (interpreted by the Spirit of God) bring life to the Scriptures and those who will hear.
This is different than the “private” interpretation of the Scriptures by carnally-thinking men who wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction and lead many astray from the Way of righteousness….the narrow path that leads to life in this earth.
People can also be messengers when they are moved by the Holy Spirit to speak the God-breathed Scriptures to others. Men speak the God-breathed Scriptures as they are moved by the Spirit to do so as opposed to the private interpretation of natural men who only see the face-value...the surface...of parables.
2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV (19) We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth
in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your
hearts: (20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is
of any private interpretation. (21) For the prophecy came not in old
time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved
by the Holy Ghost.
These men who are moved to speak by the Holy Spirit are the "children" set in the midst of us by the Lord.
Matthew 18:1-6 KJV (1) At the same time came the disciples unto
Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? (2) And
Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of
them, (3) And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted,
and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of
heaven. (4) Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little
child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
We must be found receiving the "little child" sent by Him to speak His words of life and spirit (the God-breathed and interpreted Scriptures) to our hearing ears. By humbling ourselves, we shall be able to enter in to understand the Scriptures.
(5) And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name
receiveth me. (6) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones
which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the
Those who will oppose will wax worse and worse. They will not be able to enter in to understand and will persecute those who will.
2 Timothy 3:12-17 KJV (12) Yea, and all that will live godly in
Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (13) But evil men and seducers
shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (14) But
continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been
assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
From a "child" did Timothy know the Holy Scriptures. Likewise, those who become humble as a child will also know the Holy Scriptures which makes us wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus whose sacrifice redeems us. We are to continue in those things which we learn and have been assured in knowing that the Lord Himself teaches us.
(15) And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which
are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in
Christ Jesus. (16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be
perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Only through the Lamb….through the Sacrifice ….the blood of our Lord Jesus…can we hear and enter in to the understanding of the Scriptures.
We must keep His sacrifice (the Lamb) at the hearing of His living words of spirit (the heavenly interpretation of the Scriptures in our hearing of them through the Spirit…Breath… sent from Heaven). The Scriptures will “sing a new song” to our hearing ears and the not the tired old "song" of the clichés we hear being preached by natural men who have no understanding of them.
Revelation 5:9 KJV (9) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art
worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast
slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred,
and tongue, and people, and nation;
