Discussion for Ezekiel 1:16

  • 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.
