Lesson #7 Ezekiel 1:22-28  

The Living God

Ezek 1:22-28
22And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

23And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

24And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

25And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

26And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

27And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

28As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.
KJV

The Lesson:

Some opening remarks need to be made. This is one of three times that Ezekiel is brought to the throne room of God. It is as awesome an experience each time as we shall see! Ezekiel is living in times when God is moving history in great ways. It is a time of great judgment! God passes judgment on the nations, and on His own children. The nations are destroyed, and His children are reproved unto repentance. The glory of God is seen leaving the Temple, but then Ezekiel sees it return to a Third future Temple. Satan seems to have won a victory in these worldly events of Ezekiel's day, but God shows Ezekiel that He is the God of providence! Israel returns to build a Second Temple, and to learn again how to submit to God Almighty. A point of interest is that this description of the Cherubim must also be a description of Satan. He too is identified by Ezekiel as a created Cherubim.

Ezek 28:14-15
14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
KJV

What changes in his appearance took place when iniquity was found in him is not fully known? The lion part may reflect back to the original Cherubim?

1 Peter 5:8
8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
KJV

Sin changed the appearance of Satan. The glory most certainly disappeared, and the form of a serpent seems to be the result.

Rev 12:9
9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
KJV

Whatever victory Satan may seem to have gained becomes meaningless in the providence of God! The end is all loss for Satan, and all victory in Christ for God's children. There is no victory in gaining all that the world and Satan may offer if it all is taken away in the end. The final victory will be God's.
 

22And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

"And a likeness was over the heads of the living creature"

Ezekiel finds himself in the presents of this living creature full face. The living chariot of God is now fully revealed. Ezekiel is in the presents of angels. 

Uncertainty, at best, must characterize human understanding regarding the angels. Of their majesty and worship of God and of the surpassing glory of the Object of their adoration, Bishop Bull (1634–1710), as quoted by Dr. Gaebelein in The Angels of God, pp. 46, 47, wrote: "When we consider what glorious beings the angels are, and yet that they are but creatures of, and servants to, the God whom we serve, waiting before His Throne, and humbly attending His commands; this consideration, if we let it sink deeply into our hearts, must needs possess us with most awful apprehensions of the glorious majesty of our God at all times, but especially in our approaches to Him in His worship, and fill us with the greatest reverence and humility. We should do well often to call to mind Daniel’s vision, to whom was represented the ‘Ancient of Days sitting upon His throne, a thousand thousand ministering unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand standing before Him.’ With what reverence should we behave ourselves in our addresses to the Divine Majesty, before whom the Seraphim themselves hide their faces: And if they cover their feet, are conscious to themselves of their natural imperfection, compared to the infinitely glorious God; how should we clods of earth, we vile sinners, blush and be ashamed in His presence, assuming no confidence to ourselves, but what is founded on the mercies of God and the merits of our blessed Redeemer and Advocate, Jesus Christ! And when we find ourselves inclined to pride and vanity, to think highly of ourselves and of our services to God, let us reflect at what a vast distance we come behind the holy angels; how far short our poor, lame, imperfect services are of their holy and excellent ministry. Yet, when we think of the ministry which the Holy angels perform towards God, and for us; let us at the same time propound them to ourselves, as patterns and examples for our imitation."

Angelology: Part 1-BSac-V98 #392-Oct 41-410

 

There is an expanse above the heads of these angelic beings which catches Ezekiel's eye. He has never seen anything like this before, and so the best he can say is "likeness." He can only relate to what he already knows.

"an expanse like the color of crystal, awesome, stretched out over their heads from above."

Ezek 1:22-23
The likeness of the firmament. Hebrew raqi`a occurs seventeen times in the Scriptures, in Gen 1; Ezek 1:1; 10:1; Ps 19:1; 150:1; Dan 12:3. Here the picture is that of a "platform" spread out above (RSV) the heads of the living creatures like crystal (lit., as the eye or gleam of ice; so LXX, Syr, Vulg. Cf. Rev 4:6. Omit "terrible," with LXX).
(from The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1962 by Moody Press)

This is a terrible, awesome sight. The gleam of light reflected off the facets of this crystalline expanse seems immense. I once stood on the edge of a glacial lake in Alaska. The sun was at full force, and the mini ice burgs filled the water. The light reflecting off the deep blue reflective water filled with those icy blocks of broken glacier was almost more then what my eyes could behold. I was squinting because of the intense light, yet forcing my eyes to open more wanting to take in all the beauty of the moment. A most wonderful experience that will be dwarfed when I also will see what Ezekiel here describes.

23And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

"And under the expanse their wings were straight, the one toward the other, to two each covering all this"

The upper wings stretched out until they touched the expanse. Each Cherub facing North, South, East, and West has one set of wings spread out to full extent. It may have appeared that they were supports of the expanse, but later the wings come down. The expanse remains in place with no support at all. In creation there is much talk of firmament which is similar to this term expanse.

Gen 1:6-8
6And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
KJV

This expanse seems to be heaven. A real place where God dwells.

 

"and to two each covering on that side of their bodies."

The wings are also coverings. When the cherubim are not moving, but standing still, the two sets of wings are a covering over the body of the cherubim (the bodies of each of the four cherubs).

 

24And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

"And I heard the sound of their wings, it was like the sound of great waters,"

A sound was clearly heard when the wings were in flight. The sound was not just like flowing water, but that of great waters. A great waterfall with it's deafening sound. The great Niagara, or similar waterfall would be my thoughts to what Ezekiel heard as this mighty chariot descended within his view. It was all alive with moving wheels within wheels. It had mighty wings that caused the air to roar when it flew. A great creature far beyond that of the greatest dinosaurs. It is hard to imagine that God could make something so big, so massive, so great. Yet, God's creative abilities can't be measured. Every time they find one of those monstrous dinosaurs, and claim this is the biggest! They can't get any bigger! Someone finds a bigger one! Oh, the bones can't support the weight? They can only dwell in the swamps where the water holds up the weight? Then they find the footprints on solid ground? Now they have them standing on hind feet reaching to the tops of those old growth trees? What foolish science is this that is so authoitive yet changes with every wisp of the wind. These Dumbo scientists are changing again now that their favorite flying reptile fossil has been exposed as a fraud. Walt Disney may be their last haven as the pachyderm evolves into the bird with Dumbo the flying elephant. 

"like the voice of the Almighty,"

Ezek 1:24-25
Almighty. Hebrew Shadday is a pre-Mosaic term for God, used chiefly in poetry, or in prose with El (God) prefixed (Gen 17:1). The name is of uncertain derivation, but may mean "omniscient, all-knowing," rather than "Almighty," or "of the mountains" (cf. N. Walker, "A New Interpretation of the Divine Name Shaddai," ZAW, 72 (1960), pp. 64-66). 25. This verse is omitted by nine Hebrew manuscripts, the LXX, and a Syriac manuscript, as a dittography.
(from The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1962 by Moody Press)

The voice of God is now recognized. The old Babylonians had a concept of God. It was paganised. He dwelt in the great mountains of the far North where man could never reach. This most ancient God is found in Shadday. The voice of Shadday is the voice of that great God. The ancient God who was from the beginning. The first God. A voice that has not been heard for a long time in Babylon. A God whom the Israelis know well. He is their God now! He was in time past, before Abraham, an ancient God. He came through the great Noahic flood. He scattered the nations of old Babylon who attempted to return to the corrupted star worship of the pre-flood culture which was exterminated, and now He was using the new Babylon of Nebuchadnezzar to destroy all those nations. He was also about to use this same new Babylon to discipline His wayward children. They were about to see their land taken away, and their Temple destroyed. Many like Ezekiel were already in captivity. In Ezekiel chapter 10 Shadday leaves the Temple and the city of Jerusalem. Nebuchadnezzar destroys an empty Temple. God had left! 

 

"in their going, the sound was of tumult, like the sound of an army."

There was more then the sound of a mighty waterfall. More then the voice of Shadday. There was the sound of a mighty army on the move. Not the rhythmic stomp, stomp of a marching army, but rather the turmult sound of an army going into battle. The charge, when all out effort is put into play. The rhythmic sounds change to the clatter of metal against metal, footsteps on the run, as the cry of charge is given. It is organized disorder as each soldier pushes to the maximum of his energy. Victory on the battle field is his only thought in the tumult of the moment. So does the army of God as it goes into action. A wondrous sound from those who love God with all their heart, with all their soul, and with all their might! 

 

"In their standing still, they let down their wings."

The chariot has landed. The wings come down to cover. All is suddenly still. God is about to speak! Every heavenly ear is open. Silence is truly deafening in such a situation. I can only imagine how Ezekiel's heart must have been pumping at this moment. The great noise of the Chariot now stops in an instant, and there is this deathly silence. Everything is still!

 

25And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

"And there was a voice from upon the expanse that was over their heads,"

A voice comes from above. A voice from heaven. A voice from those dwelling on the expanse. This great expanse or firmament that was over the heads of the cherubim is a dwelling place for the physical manifestation of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost Triune God of the Bible. We are soon to see His throne! We have heard the sound of those who surround that throne. A mighty army of heavenly host. Powerful beyond human imagination. All dedicated to the one sitting on the throne. Their allegiance is complete. Their loyalty is pure! They live only to serve! They are united in their love for this great God of all eternity.  

"and in their standing still, they let down their wings."

Ezek 1:4-28
If the two creatures on each side covered their bodies with the two wings, then two other wings could very easily be so extended under the canopy that the tops of the one should touch those of the other. As the creatures moved, Ezekiel hears the sound, i.e., the rustling of their wings, like the roaring of mighty billows. This is strengthened by the second comparison, "like the voice of the Almighty," i.e., resembling thunder, cf. Ezek 10:5. The hamulaah (OT:1999) qowl (OT:6963) that follows still depends on 'esh¦ma` (OT:8085). hamulaah (OT:1999), which occurs only here and in Jer 11:6, is probably synonymous with haamown (OT:1995), "roaring," "noise," "tumult." This rushing sound, however, was heard only when the creatures were in motion; for when they stood, they allowed their wings to fall down. This, of course, applies only to the upper wings, as the under ones, which covered the body, hung downwards, or were let down. From this it clearly appears that the upper wings neither supported nor bore up the canopy over their heads, but only were so extended, when the cherubim were in motion, that they touched the canopy. In v. 25 is also mentioned whence the loud sound came, which was heard, during the moving of the wings, from above the canopy, consequently from him who was placed above it, so that the creatures, always after this voice resounded, went on or stood still, i.e., put themselves in motion, or remained without moving, according to its command.

26And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

"And from above the expanse that was over their heads looking like a sapphire stone,"

A blue of the deep. A blue like I saw in that glacial lake. A blue that can only be seen where things are pure and clean. That deep blue that takes your breath away. The bluest blue of the sunlit sky. A perfect day where the air is clean and fresh. So is the throne on the expanse over the heads of the cherubim. So is the throne of God. So it is in the heaven to which we long. We would pollute it in an instant were it not for the promise that the blood of Christ will wash us clean as snow. What a sacrifice. What a Savior.

"was the likeness of a throne"

Ezek 1:26-27
On the platform was a throne in appearance of a sapphire (cf. Ex 24:10). This may be the ancient marble-like, azure stone known as lapis lazuli. 27. The upper part of the human likeness seated on the throne shown like gleaming bronze (RSV; lit., like the eye of hashmal; cf. v. 4), which fire enclosed round about (lit., like the appearance of fire a house to it round about); while the lower part, also, was covered by a fiery brightness.
(from The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1962 by Moody Press)

A throne is very significant! John saw a throne also as Matthew Henry well recognized.

Ezek 1:26-28
The first thing that John discovered in his visions was a throne set in heaven (Rev 4:2), which commands reverence and subjection. It is a throne of glory, a throne of grace, a throne of triumph, a throne of government, a throne of judgment. The Lord has prepared his throne in the heavens, has prepared it for his Son, whom he has set King on his holy hill of Zion.
(from Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible: New Modern Edition, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1991 by Hendrickson Publishers, Inc.)

There is only one Temple built on the holy hill of Zion that has a throne. It is not the First Temple of Solomon. It is not the Second Temple of Ezra/ Nehemiah/Herod. It is the Third Temple which Ezekiel clearly describes in the last chapters of this book. A Third Jewish Temple yet to be built with a throne! A Temple where the glory of God will again fill the house! This will all take place at the Second Coming of Christ when He will sit on that throne as the King of Israel forevermore. Then will He be King of kings, and Lord of lords!

Ezek 43:5-7
5So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

6And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood by me.

7And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
KJV

Ezekiel saw the glory of God leave the First Temple after Israel brought in the Idols of the nations. God was ready to destroy the Temple which no longer represented His glory. What joy to know Christ will return to fill the Third Temple with His glory again.

Ezek 10:15-19
15And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar.

16And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them.

17When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up, these lifted up themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in them.

18Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.

19And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
KJV

The glory of God left the Lord's house in Ezekiel 10. Nebuchadnezzar then destroyed what was left of Jerusalem and it's Temple. These are truths we are yet to explore. This same glory with the same cherubim fills the Third Jewish Temple that Ezekiel describes in the last section of this book. The God of providence prevails!

"And on the likeness of the throne was a likeness in appearance of a man from above on it."

John also saw the likeness of a man when he was taken to this same throne room. John gives even more information identifying the man as "the Son of man:" 

Rev 1:10-19
10I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
KJV

John saw Christ as he gazed upon the physical manifestation of the Triune God, and I believe Ezekiel saw Christ even before His timely incarnation.

 

It stands to reason that Ezekiel would see man as he looked upon God.

Gen 1:26-27
26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
KJV

God in physical manifestation choose to look like man from eternity past. The Triune God choose to model man in this same image. It is not the image of a monkey. It is the image of man! The evolutionists will never get it! The Christian evolutionists remain in earthly limitations never rising above into heavenliness. They remain bogged in earthly parameters established by the ungodly who are blind to such wondrous things. James Dobson is such a Christian evolutionist. A very popular fellow, but one who can never rise to the great things Ezekiel offers us. He is bogged down with the image of a monkey. He will never rise to the image of God!

 

 27And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

"And I saw, like the color of polished bronze looking like fire within it, all around," 

We are still waiting for God to speak! Ezekiel goes back to describing the physical things that he sees. He looks at God and sees a consuming fire. He sees the color of polished (molten more probable) bronze. Bronze in the crucible! Fire all around! On this beautiful pure blue throne sits this molten bronze living image of man that is obviously much more then a mortal man. The glory of glories is now in Ezekiel's sight. The day is coming when the Cherubim shall remain behind. When this great God will come to earth unhindered in all His glory. It is a day when the very stars will flee from His presents as He descends sitting on this same throne now white in preparation for judgment. The purity of God will be the measure in that day, and woe to all not covered by the blood. Woe to all not written in the Lamb's book of life.

Rev 20:11
11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
KJV

 

"from the likeness of His loins and upward, and from the likeness of His loins and downward, I saw Him looking like fire, and a brightness to it all around."

Ezek 1:4-28
With the repetition of the last clause of v. 24 this subject is concluded in v. 25. Over or above upon the firmament was to be seen, like a sapphire stone, the likeness of a throne, on which sat one in the form of a man-i.e., Jehovah appeared in human form, as in Dan 7:9f. Upon this was poured out a fiery, shining light, like glowing brass (chash¦mal (OT:2830) `eeyn (OT:5869), as in v. 4) and like fire, caabiyb beeyt-laah, "within it round about" (mibeeyt (OT:1004) = beeyt (OT:1004), "within," and laah (OT:3807a )], pointing back to kicee' (OT:3678) d¦muwt (OT:1823)). This appears to be the simplest explanation of these obscure words. They are rendered differently by Hitzig, who translates them: "like fire which has a covering round about it, i.e., like fire which is enclosed, whose shining contrasts so much the more brightly on account of the dark surrounding." But, to say nothing of the change which would then be necessary of beeyt (OT:1004) into bayit (OT:1004), this meaning seems very far-fetched, and cannot be accepted for this reason alone, that 'eesh (OT:784) mar¦'eeh (OT:4758), neither in the following hemistich (v. 27b) nor in Ezek 8:2, has any such or similar strengthening addition.
(from Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament: New Updated Edition, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1996 by Hendrickson Publishers, Inc.)

He is fire! He is glory! He is the everlasting God! Nothing can stand up against Him! His power has no limits! His judgments are quick! His judgments are final! There will be no appeal! He makes no mistakes! He is fearful to the sinner, but altogether lovely to the saint.

 

28As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

"As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of the rain so appeared the brightness all around."

Ezekiel sees a rainbow. The storm which brought this wondrous vision has a rainbow. In the stillness of the moment, after the winds, and mighty sounds, comes the bow. The symbol of peace between man and this glorious God. The fearfulness that Ezekiel feels in his sin is now soothed in the appearance of the bow. A beautiful sight at the end of any storm. The bow seems to dominate the scène. It's brilliance seems to take control of all Ezekiel now can see.

God's wrath is manifested when there is opposition to His glory. Once before in the ancient times He allowed a flood to be the instrument by which His wrath was manifested. The storms that tumulted that ancient world were catastrophic. Only Noah and his family survived. An entire culture was wiped away in this single action. Noah must have greatly feared when he realized that he was the same sinner after the flood as he was before. God saved him from the flood, but what brought about the flood was still working in his heart. God removed that fear with the rainbow. The rainbow forever represents the promise of God. He promised He will never destroy the earth again with a flood, and He also promised that we can be sure that the salvation He offers will never fail.

Gen 9:13-17
13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
KJV

2 Tim 1:1
1:1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,
KJV

The promise of life in Christ is the bow that brings peace to the heart of a saved sinner. It is that beautiful scene in the midst of glory that gives us a sure hope. A sure hope that we will be acceptable. Not by our faded view of goodness that can never stand in the face of all this perfect glory, but rather by the promise of Christ bought with His precious blood.

 

"This was the appearance of the likeness of the Glory of the LORD."

What more can I say? This was the appearance of the likeness of the Glory of the LORD!

 

"And I saw, even when I fell away on my face, and I heard a voice of one speaking."

Ezekiel fell on his face before this great God! Isaiah said the following under similar circumstances: 6:5 "Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts". 

The stillness was broken with a voice! Not the foolish unintelligible gibberish of the phony tongues you hear from the charismatic movement that makes no sense. This is the voice of one speaking. Clearly understood! No baloney angelic language! God is a communicator, not a confussionator! Ezekiel is about to hear God! It will be Chapter 2 where His message begins. We have now finished Chapter 1. Wow! Even greater things are coming. God is going to speak. Who would not want to listen? Well, there are many who never read God's word. How sad that they neglect the greatest book ever given to man. How sad that they miss the greatest story ever told. How sad that they never hear what God has to say.

Don't be counted among them. Come back as we start Chapter 2 of Ezekiel. When in the stillness of this great moment, God speaks to Ezekiel.
