Discussion for Ezekiel 1

  • Keith Wayne Hall
    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.

    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.
