Four Living Creatures of Revelation

Revelation 4:6-8 ESV

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!”

The four living creatures are the four sides of spiritual maturity.

The face of " a lion " that’s authority. I have spiritual authority when I really know who I am.
The foundation of my life is The Rock, The Lord Jesus Christ. The realm of spiritual authority is a
Kingdom realm. Where The Spirit of The Lord is Lord there is authority and liberty. (2 Cor 3:17)

The face of "an ox ". My life is submitted sacrificially to the Lord. (Mat 11:29)
Given to the Lord. Present yourselves as a living sacrifice. (Rom 12:1-2)
I am yoked with The Lord ever waiting, sensitive and responsive to the moving of His Spirit 

The face of " a man ". I am a new creature in Christ Jesus (2Cor 5:17)
I am in a place of communion and fellowship with Him..The Lord can share his heart with me.
I can relate and understand what is being imparted in the Spirit

The face of " an eagle " This speaks of Spirituality.  I have been lifted brought up into that place with Him We shall mount up with wings (Isaiah 40:31). We have the divine capacity to ascend into the realm of the spirit. They that wait upon the lord... shall mount up with wings as eagles. I can move in the spirit. In Him we live and move (Acts 17:28) Spiritually...thou hearest the wind and knows the sound (John 3:8) as I become sensitive to the manifest presence of the Lord and respond to that, then I am moving in harmony with Gods eternal purpose.

He has made us partakers of a divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4)
That the character of Christ might be formed in us (Gal 4:19)

The four living creatures are a picture of the New Testament Overcomer.

Revelation 3:20-22 KJV

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Carry My Soul - Phil Wickham

I want to hear You say well done
I want to be welcomed in
I want to feel Your love like sunshine
On my resurrected skin
I want to hear the music play
I want to hear the trumpets sound
I want to hear You call my name
And watch my feet lift off the ground
I will run
Oh and I won't quit
Chasing Your heart
Just like David did
I'll coming running
Through the gates
Looking to Your face
Oh I can hardly wait
Until You carry my soul
Carry my soul away
When everything is said and done
And death has met its end
I want to hear You call me son
Be counted as a faithful friend
I want to see You rise like fire
I want to see the scars that bled
Oh won't you take me higher
The place where angels fear to tread
And I will run
Lord and I won't quit
Chasing Your heart
Just like David did
I'll coming running
Through the gates
Looking to Your face
Oh I can hardly wait
Until You carry my soul
Carry my soul away
And I will keep my lamplight
Burning in the night
I'll be waiting here for You
Watching for all Your signs
If I may be so bold to ask You
Would You lend Your ear to me
Oh Lord come quickly
And I will run
Lord and I won't quit
Chasing Your heart
Just like David did
And I'll coming running
Through the gates
Looking to Your face
Oh I can hardly wait
Until You carry my soul
Carry my soul away
Until You carry my soul
Carry my soul away

Love His Appearing

Proverbs 8:34-35
34 Blessed is the man that hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoever finds me finds life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD.

2 Timothy 4:8
From now on there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, 
shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but to all them also that love his appearing.

If anyone hears my voice, that voice of the Lord is a still small voice
We have to become quiet. The earthly becomes quiet
Our soul becomes quiet. Our spirit becomes active.
We become sensitized with the heavenly and we begin to move and flow in it.
Our heart is lifted in vision, hope and expectancy.
There is an impartation of spiritual substance.
Then when we pray it is with a heavenly anointing
Those that we pray for are lifted and the earthly loses it pull.
There is an impartation of the heavenly.
Our innermost being is reoriented toward that eternal reality.
We wait on the Lord actively worshipfully waiting in anticipation
of the Lord appearing…He is coming for those who love his appearing.

Overcome - New Life Worship

Seated above, enthroned in the Father's love
Destined to die, poured out for all mankind
God's only Son, perfect and spotless one
He never sinned but suffered as if He did

All authority
Every victory is Yours
All authority
Every victory is Yours

Savior, worthy of honor and glory
Worthy of all our praise, You overcame
Jesus, awesome in power forever
Awesome and great is Your name, You overcame

Power in hand speaking the Father's plan
You're sending us out, light in this broken land

We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb
And the word of our testimony, everyone overcome

Tree of Life

Our spirit is recreated through a “new birth” in which these spiritual senses are restored and begin to develop.  It is very important that we spend quality time “waiting upon the Lord” in order to develop our ability to “sense” (spirit), or “feel” (soul) His presence, and “hear” His voice, deep within us.

These spiritual senses are further developed and matured through our obedience to a process of “testing,” which is designed to draw us up into a higher realm of spiritual awareness, understanding, and experience.

As the Lord tested Adam by placing the tree of “life” and the tree of the “knowledge” of good and evil in the “midst” of the garden, we also must face a process in which we are tested to determine the outworking of the Lord's purpose for us.  Therefore, these two “trees” are placed in the pattern of each of our lives.  The tree of life (spirit) represents our utter dependence upon, and trust in, the outworking of His purpose and provision for us.  The tree of the knowledge of good and evil (soul) represents our desire to be independent and choose for ourselves what is right or wrong.

Therefore, we must make a choice concerning these opposite pulls upon our being.  We can choose to satisfy our soulish, sensual desires, as expressed in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; or we can choose the higher realm of spirituality, as expressed in the tree of life (over-comer).

In Christ Alone - Lauren Daigle


In Christ alone my hope is found He is my light, my strength, my song This Cornerstone, this solid ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm What heights of love, what depths of peace When fears are stilled, when strivings cease My Comforter, my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand There in the ground His body lay Light of the World by darkness slain Then bursting forth in glorious Day Up from the grave He rose again And as He stands in victory Sin's curse has lost its grip on me For I am His and He is mine Bought with the precious blood of Christ No guilt in life, no fear in death This is the power of Christ in me From life's first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny No power of hell, no scheme of man Can ever pluck me from His hand 'Til He returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

His Presense

As The Lord has done many times before, He sovereignly brought a group of believers to my place of business yesterday. I sensed the Presence of The Lord and began to share some of what I had been hearing in my spirit. The Anointing can no longer be contained inside our buildings for a couple of hours each week, no matter what denominational or nondenominational name is on the outside. It is flowing out into the highways and the byways. At our jobs, in the streets, at the supermarket, at the mall. The Lord is looking for a people who have become sensitive to His Spirit. A people He can trust with anointing and authority. He is restoring Shekhinah. That ability to abide the presense of The Lord that the first Adam lost is being restored. It is moving out into the lives of everyday people without abilities, personalities or special talents. The Lord is developing a people of integrity, of uprightness of heart and spirit that He can trust with this outpouring and infilling. Who will not under any circumstance attempt to set up a structure or ministry or organization that would contain or restrain this moving of Gods Spirit. A people who are truly living the crucified life, who remain hidden during this mighty outpouring of The Spirit. A people who don't draw attention to themselves or attempt to profit from this in anyway. A people who will so perfectly reveal Jesus that they will remain unseen. Lives hid in Christ through the work of the indwelling Holy Spirit. If He be lifted up He will draw all men everywhere.

There is a growing awareness of the presence of The Lord.

He is calling us ever higher.

That we might be available and sensitive.

Then at places and times of His choosing He will manifest His Glory.
