. scripture must be interpreted with scripture. nothing else is true enough or holy enough to interpret the Word of God, but the Word of God Himself.
. we have looked at Ezekiel 1. the picture of the Divine Throne/Chariot. out of the midst of the glory comes the throne bearers. the cherubims. and the firmament over them.
. we have looked at Ezekiel 10. the picture of the throne. the cherubims, and the firmament above them.
. we have looked at Revelation 1, 4, 5, 14, the picture of the throne. before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal. (this sea of glass again in 15:2) in the midst of the throne and round about the throne, are the four cherubims. we see that the four cherubims, begin to say, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. we see that when they give honour and thanks to Him that sits on the throne, who liveth forever and ever, the twenty four elders fall down before Him that sits on the throne. and they worship Him that liveth forever and ever. in the midst of the throne and the four cherubim and the twenty four elders stands a Lamb. the four cherubims, the twenty four elders fall down before the Lamb. they worship Him. they sing a new song to Him. they sing to Him: thou hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign upon the earth. and I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion (remember Hebrews 12: we are not come to a material mountain, but we are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels…), and with Him 144,000,…they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four cherubims, and the elders…
. now we go back to Numbers 1,2. we begin to transpose the picture in Numbers 1,2, onto the pictures in Ezekiel 1 and 10, Revelation 4, 5, and 14. we begin to see that they are the same picture…
