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.

I sincerely believe that Ezekiel is looking at a flying machine of some sort ,maybe a helicopter. Definately not our Father.I have read this verse many times and still come to the same conclusion, no disrespect intended, Bob NZ

This chapter helps us see the Glory of the Lord. Ezekiel was given visions by God when Israel was taken into captivity. Ezekiel was full of hope while the rest of the exiles were in spiritual depression. Today, we can see the Glory of God in times like these as we face ever growing evil that is around us today in this country that we live in. Read Psalms 137 and compared it to the first chapter of Ezekiel, and you will see a greater contrast of faith that exists between Ezekiel and the rest of the people during that time.

I love reading the bible,but I do see similarities in Ezekiel, Revelations and Greek mythology. In which makes me and others believe their is a real connection.

For someone who is newly into studying the word of God, this throws me off! When I read it, I see very dramatic visions and can respect and appreciate the awesomeness of God. Maybe that 's what this passage intended to do?!

This is all to do with the description of the Cherubim 5 through to 25 see also 10 8 22 They are like men in general bodily form, the only difference being in the feet, wings, number of hands, number and kind of faces, eyes, and a few other other points symbolism Much symbolism is made out of this plain, literal description of these angelic beings called "Cherubims " but such has no foundation in Scripture or any value in teaching the gospel or biblical doctrine. They do not represent the 4 gospels, different parts of creation, or the nature of man any more than other creatures described in Scripture. Just saying.

I also would like an explanation of this scripture. I have been trying to wrap my head around it and it just doesn 't come to me. God bless anyone who can tell me.
