Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 1:9


1:9 Their wings - The wings of the two cherubim which went foremost, and the wings of the two hindermost, were joined together when they moved. Went - This explains the former words, assuring us, that every one of those living creatures are ready, and unwearied in doing the pleasure of their Creator.


Discussion for Ezekiel 1

  • Julee Hodge
    What's happening here sounds so much like REVELATIONS! ... Does it not?

    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.

    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.

    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
  • Word
    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
