Discussion for Ezekiel 1

  • Paul Hai
    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.

    Karl, Do you believe Ezekiel 1:3?
  • Karl
    responds to Kenneth; GOOD QUESTION! What did Ezekiel see? The LORD of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Samuel, and Elijah (1Kings19) does not seem to be the God of Ezekiel. Perhaps the question we should be asking is not so much WHAT did he see, but WHY did he see it? My interpretation is that this manifestation was meant for a people familiar with Babylonian imagery. Does the LORD need a spaceship?
  • Allan
    The chapter is immensley poetic it is full of symbalism and imagery, it does not refer to spaceships or any other craft but rather beings possiby angelic or maybe human executing God purpose and will. The passage is full of movement colour and tremendous sound, it speaks of a great throne where a man sits upon I and this I believe to be the son of God our Lord Jesus.

  • A Lowe
    who did God send to the people in the book EZEKIEL
  • Spaceship of human beings who have attained a closeness with God that transcends the concept of time allowing them to praise God in all his glory during his visions to the prophets even in a past where they have yet to be born. That's only an hypothesis though but worry not, for there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed and nothing secret that will not be brought to light.
