Manifestations of the L<small>ORD</small> God himself, the living creatures referred to as the '''four beasts''' who are in the midst of the throne and around the throne of the one God; key transformers of the light of the Infinite unto souls evolving in the finite. The Solar Beings who fill these positions in hierarchy are the Four Pillars in the temple of God’s Being, who make possible the crystallization of the God Flame throughout the [[Macrocosm]].
Revelation 4:6–8 describes four winged beasts surrounding the throne of God: the first was “like a lion,” the second “like a calf,” the third “had a face as a man,” and the fourth beast “was like a flying eagle.” These four cosmic beings are the guardians of the four quadrants of Matter in time and space—the etheric, mental, emotional and physical bodies of planets and their people, which correspond to the four elements: fire, air, water and earth.
