At the beginning of this year I was at a Prophetic Conference in Munich, Germany. On Saturday the 05.01 there was a speaker in the afternoon session who was completely wrapped up in the presence of God. He spoke simply and only told us stories about the adventures that he had with the Holy Spirit. As he spoke, a warm blanket of air started settling over the audience. It felt like all the hairs on my body were standing up. It was the presence of God. Everybody felt it. I believe if I could have seen it with my natural eye it would have been a cloud (Ezekiel 10). The presence seemed to intensify as he spoke.
Then the speaker called people up to the front to pray for them. By this time the presence was so strong and the room was so warm. It was like there was a heat emanating from the stage. I got down on my knees where I was sitting and just prayed in tongues. This is when I saw a vision.
I saw myself standing before the throne of God. There was a white and yellow light all around us. The throne was covered in great clouds. Behind the throne was a huge rainbow, glistening and sparkling as if it was made from different coloured precious stones. I heard a rumbling sound coming from the cloud, and saw flashes of lightning.
And there came a strong wind around me. And the wind parted the clouds to reveal God. I saw One who had the likeness of man sitting on the throne. He radiated so much light. I put my arm just over my eyes and had to almost squeeze them shut in order to see, as one does when one looks directly at the sun. Then I saw how the head of Him who sat on the throne was rotating. I saw first the head of an Ox, the head rotated and I saw the face of an eagle, then came the head of a lion and then the head of a man. Great wings spanned up high into the heavens above Him. I was completely terrified as I saw these things that in fear I opened up my eyes. I did not want to see anymore.
Dear bretheren, by writing this down I am not saying that this is how God looks like. However I do believe that He was using this imagery and symbolism to reveal His nature to me. If we study the visions of Ezekiel we understand that He saw four living creatures each with four faces (ox, lion, eagle and man – Ezekiel 1). He saw the glory of God.
I wondered afterwards why God used these symbols in my vision. I believe one of the messages He was also giving me was that the closer I get to Him, the more I will look like Him, just like the four living creatures in heaven who never leave God’s side, but continually sing day and night, “Holy, Holy, Holy”. The more time we spend in His presence, the more we will take on the nature of an ox, the nature of the eagle, the nature of a lion and the nature of man (i.e man redeemed).
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
What exactly do these four faces represent?
