his throne chariot

Ezekiel 10:20-22 (JDV)

Ezekiel 10:20 These were the living beings I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the Chebar Canal, and I recognized that they were cherubs.
Ezekiel 10:21 Each had four faces and each had four wings, with what looked something like human hands under their wings.
Ezekiel 10:22 Their faces looked like the same faces I had seen by the Chebar Canal. Each man went straight ahead.

I have been arguing that these four living beings represent all creatures and that God is working out His sovereign will in the midst of a creation that thinks of itself as independent of outside influence.

Some have argued that these cherubs form a kind of throne chariot and that God is riding it — much like what is described in Psalm 18:10.

The two ideas are not contradictory. Behind the choices and histories of the creatures of our universe is a divine rider who is going somewhere. We are his throne chariot.

LORD, give us the wisdom to aim for a destination in line with your plan.
