Four Beasts

My Friends,

I finished my part of Sharon's seminar Saturday. It was a pleasure to teach the group. Most were new faces, but there were several who came to the last gathering. In addition to Sharon, there was Bill Trodlier and Alicia. I talked about the Labours of Hercules and we did a healing session similar to what we have done in the past. The group seemed to enjoy themselves and were very friendly and gracious.

Sharon and her mate Keith were gracious hosts and let us have the run of the house and use their computers to check my mail and write posts such as this.

It was helpful to study how Sharon put everything together which offered me inspiration that I can soon make a living doing symposiums as well as book sales.

Sunday, Larry and Robin came over and we visited some of the sites of the area and had a nice dinner and conversation together. At the gatherings I am often too busy to spend much one on one time with individuals so it was nice to spend some quality time with Larry, Robin and Sharon and others.

Continuing Revelations...

...round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever. Rev 4:6-9

Below is an explanation I gave in a previous post. Study the scripture over and see if you can add some additional light or correspondences.

Previous post:

The most obvious thing of interest here is that these four beasts are symbols of the fixed cross of the zodiac. The first beast was the lion, the symbol of Leo, the second a calf for Taurus, the third a man, a symbol of Aquarius and the fourth a flying eagle, one of the symbols of Scorpio. Each sign of the zodiac is in one of the three crosses: the mutable, the fixed and the cardinal. The fact that all four of these signs are in one cross shows that the astrological connection is no coincidence, but an important message is embedded therein through symbolism.

The meaning of the fixed cross signifies fixed intent, persistence, reliability and firmness that which can be depended upon.

This gave the early saints three messages:

  1. You can depend on God to stand by you,
  2. he who endures to the end shall be saved,
  3. a symbol of the cross whereon the Son of God was fixed between heaven and earth.
  4. Each of the beasts has six wings. Isaiah calls these beasts Seraphim

    1In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. Isaiah 6:1-3

    Searaphim comes from the Hebrew SARAPH and means "burning or fiery ones." This is translated as "fiery serpents" in Numbers 21:6 & 8 and as a "fiery flying serpent" in Isaiah 14:29

    The fact that these four beasts are associated with serpents (a symbol of wisdom) tells us that there is much wisdom to be gained through an understanding of the fours signs of the fixed cross. The fact that they are fiery before the throne of God is a sign that enlightenment can come through the contemplation of God's handiwork in the heavens.

    The six wings are a symbol of the six worlds of creation with the seventh being the throne of God or the sea of glass. Four wings cover the fiery light and only two are in use which tells us that average humanity cannot see (wings covering the face) or work (wings covering the feet) in the higher worlds. They are limited to two worlds the physical and emotional. When the "mark of the beast" is removed, two more wings shall be free and cause the seeker to gain greater power of flight to the world of the mind and intuition or higher love.

    The four beasts were "full of eyes before and behind." [ Rev 4:6] "Before" is a symbol of a vision of the future and "behind" a symbol of the past. The beasts speak of that "which was, and is, and is to come." [ Rev 4:8] This tells us that when we uncover the secrets of the throne of God (the stars of heaven) that we can decode the secrets of the past, present and future.

    This is the destiny of the science of astrology, which is yet in its infancy as far as the general understanding of humanity is concerned.
