1:7 Feet - Their thighs, legs and feet, were of a human shape. Straight - Not bowed to this or that part, which argues weakness. The sole - That which is properly the foot. A calf's - A divided hoof spake the cleanness of the creature. They - Their feet.


Discussion for Ezekiel 1

  • Julee Hodge
    What's happening here sounds so much like REVELATIONS! ... Does it not?
  • BSP
    Verse 28: The vision was so awe inspiring and amazing that it caused Ezekiel to fall face down. I think I would have done the same or fainted if I saw such magnificence.
  • Insight777
    Ezekiel sees 4 attack helicopters, the duel wheel type similar to a Kamov KA. The crystal is the windshield. Helicopter wings droop down when at rest. DAS surrounds the aircraft and allows the pilot to see the fire of missiles below his feet as if the floor was not there.
    This is the same vision as the 4 horsemen and it represents the End of Days War.
  • GAENOR OBRIEN
    Mysterious;fascinating and divine.

    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
  • 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.
