Throne Room of God

These passages need to be contemplated together. It may be a little hard to follow at first.
“Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.” – Ezekiel 1:15
“Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.” –
“As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.
And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.” – Ezekiel 10:13-14
“And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and 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.”
– Revelation 4:6-8
These appear to be visions of the throne room of God. The four living creatures differ slightly in each vision, in Ezekiel it is a cherub and in Revelation a calf. I believe Revelation is more specific because they are all cherubs of a particular nature who encircle the throne of God giving praise to Him night and day.
In summary it appears that the formation of that circle of living creatures around the throne is the WHEEL that “was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.”
“round about the throne, were four beasts”
This is only my personal interpretation of course but, I tried my best to ground it in the scripture above. I believe a vision of this wheel is like unto the very Presence of God.
