Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 1:18


1:18 The rings - The circumference of the wheels. Dreadful - Their very height imprest a fear on the beholder. Them four - Every one of the four wheels. How fitly do the wheels, their motion, their height, and eyes, signify the height, unsearchableness, wisdom, and vigilance of the Divine Providence.


Discussion for Ezekiel 1

    Just as you all have seen Angels appear in the flesh before you in the blink of an eye, I have seen Ezekial in this manner, and spoken with him. From the Holy Spirit of Jesus, I can tell you a clearer version of the meaning of all theses things in the Book of Ezekial. The Four Angels are four men, (put on earth in the same way you have seen Angels appear in the flesh)

    Initially I got scared when I read Eze 1. I have read all the comment from you all and it seem fun to hear your descriptions and it shows our human limitations. God can choose any form to appear to anybody. Don't doubt its God cos this book started with he saw visions of God vs 2 says God hand was on Ezekiel. God is at it like in the book of revelation. Let us stand in awe of God

    God in a flying vehicle, His four guards in vehicles also and the LORD was with Ezekiel. Although God is supernatural He is very natural. What do you think was in that cloud that was leading the children out of Egypt? In Numbers 2 you see the 4 flags of the 4 outer tribes that protected the Camp of Israel notice what is on them. The 4 guards you will read about in scripture will have those 4 faces

    Prophet Ezekiel is one of the . rarest people ever to exist. He not only saw but, (in accordance with his understanding, over 2000 years before fire breathing rockets) attempts to describe an alien landing and interaction. I can see why this would be in a book as important as the Holy Bible, itself full of examples of "other-worldly" visitations.

    A meeting by the River Chebar in Babylon where descendants of exiled Hebrew Pyramid builders gathered to explain what they knew in the presence of priest and scribe Ezekiel, who recorded their knowledge. Wheels within wheels are wooden lobed step-walking machines that when hoisted by rope, step-walked Pyramid blocks upwards, tier by tier progressively and more than two hundred tiers to completion.
