    Relate it to the camp of the Israelites in the wilderness. Look up the standards of the tribes around the tabernacle.

    The vision is God's heavenly dwelling place. Note also the Revelation vision of it.

    but are those actual creatures? I read of them in The Garden of Eden and on the Arc of the Covenant, and the Babylonians or the Samarians said to have seen them...

    The Cheribium of the tabernacle are not real, though I personally think there are such beings. I've read some that think they are a class of angels, I'd probably opt for some other being all together but I don't think you can prove either way.

    I assume the creatures in Ezek/Rev are actual beings, and may be what the cheribium of the ark are patterned after.

    We aren't told a lot about them, but if you do the study I suggested you may gain a little more insight :)

    Seriously, there are a level of spirit beings ABOVE angels and BELOW cherubs that each have unique appearance and functions. Some we see only glimpses of; others are described in the Word.

    Below cherubs are seraphs.

    But then there are "watchers" and "holy ones" (Daniel 4 shows them as beings that communicate truth to Daniel; channels)

    And living creations that John saw in Rev 4 (he used Ezekiel's generic description of them, probably not knowing what else to call them!)

    Study of spirit beings between the level of GOD and MAN is of great interest.

    Especially to a "griffin" like me!!
