1 Now it came to passe in the thirtieth yeere, in the fourth moneth, in the fifth day of the moneth, (as I was among the captiues by the riuer of Chebar) that the heauens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
4 ¶ And I looked, and behold, a whirlewinde came out of the North, a great cloude, and a fire infoulding it selfe, and a brightnesse was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
10 As for the likenesse of their faces, they foure had the face of a man, and the face of a lyon on the right side, and they foure had the face of an oxe on the left side: they foure also had the face of an eagle.
13 As for the likenesse of the liuing creatures, their appearance was like burning coles of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went vp and downe among the liuing creatures, and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went foorth lightning.
16 The appearance of the wheeles, and their worke was like vnto the colour of a Berill: and they foure had one likenesse, and their appearance and their worke was as it were a wheele in the middle of a wheele.
21 When those went, these went, and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted vp from the earth, the wheeles were lifted vp ouer against them: for the spirit of the liuing creature was in the wheeles.
24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almightie, the voice of speech, as the noise of an hoste: when they stood, they let downe their wings.
26 ¶ And aboue the firmament that was ouer their heads, was the likenesse of a Throne, as the appearance of a Saphyre stone, and vpon the likenesse of the Throne was the likenesse as the appearance of a man aboue vpon it.
27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it: from the appearance of his loynes euen vpward, and from the appearance of his loynes euen downeward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, & it had brightnesse round about.
28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloude in the day of raine, so was the appearance of the brightnesse round about. This was the appearance of the likenesse of the glory of the Lord: and when I saw it, I fell vpon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

This chapter is a unique because Ezekiel gave full description of God.Though,he did not see Him but His cherubim.This means that God can still manifest to the people who have clean heart and pure mind whatever they are.Even,they may not be a prophet but shows them the future and anythings that want to befall on them and way out.Therefore,we need to move closer to God with whole heart and righteousness in order to see favour of Almighty.

The vision of Ezekiel along with that of Rev.4: is a visual and prophetic view of the earth.I have transformed a world globe which depicts these visions while maintaining the earths topography. Take a look at a globe and see.

It's interesting to note that the terms that Ezekiel used to explain what he saw, were limited to the current vernacular of his day. Terms like "UFO" or "aliens" did not exist in those days.
Truly, the Bible is alive, timely, and full of wonder.

Am wondering if the word 'expressly' should be there.
Blessedseed's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 4/10/2013, 7:16am...
I believe that in this chapter God is letting mankind know that he is in control and we all must move in him and stay in him to make sure that we are moving and in the right direction that he wants you to go. This is being led by God in every aspect of our daily lives. This is giving everything to God and not holding any part back. He is our all and all, the center of our being.
