|1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
Commenatry on 1:9 [5 September 2007]: The extensions—guarding Yehuveh’s charge, commandments, statutes and instruction (Torah, laws)—are all interlinked. They consistently provide simple, “straight forward” guidance for our lives.
Commenatry on 1:10 [5 September 2007]: Four faces, linked in Scriptures to numerous things:
Face Associated Tribe Constellation Characteristic Quality
man Reuben (Genesis 49:3-4) Acquarius socializing friend
lion Judah (Genesis 49:8-9) Leo retrieving evangelists
ox Ephraim (Jeremiah 31:18) Taurus instructing teachers
eagle Dan (Genesis 49:16-17) Scorpio reproving prophets
As presented here and in Ezekiel 10, every revived living person will at times wear each of these faces. There are times we can only befriend others, times when we must appeal to them to return to Yehuveh, times when we must patiently teach them, and times when we must pointedly speak Yehuveh’s words to them to correct their ways. Yehuveh must give us wisdom to wear each face at the appropriate time.
