Reading And Study Of Ezekiel 1
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Ezekiel is a prophet among the people of Judah taken to Babylon as captives and in the 5th day of the 4th month of the 30th year of his life, which was the 5th year of Jehoiachin's former captivity (the former king of Judah), the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel. Ezekiel was a Levite priest and the Lord appeared to him in a whirlwind. In the middle of fire came something that looked like four living creatures and they all had the appearance of a man. Their form looked like a mans form (verse 1-5).  Throughout they had beautiful a descriptions of the colors they had on them, from amber to brass, burning coals of fire, to beryl, and crystal and sapphire.

Except they had four faces and they had wings. We know these are not men any longer because men do not have wings. They may stand upright like men; but they are not men. Instead of feet like a man; they had feet like a cow. They have feet like a calf that sparkled like the color of burnished brass. They had arms and hands; but they were under their wings and their wings were all connected to each other. When they walked they did not need to turn their body to turn around, since they had four faces, they just went the direction they needed to go.

These are how the four faces looked; one face was the face of a man, the next a face of a lion, the next was the face of an ox, and the last was the face of an eagle (v6-10).  Imagine seeing one of these approaching you in less than two seconds. You'll probably stumble over and nearly pass out because I nearly did at the sight in my imagination.

They looked like creatures of light as they appeared like burning coal of fire or lamps and when they moved it looked like a flash of lightening. It sounds like, to me, they are like chariots that you can only see the wheels of and that is how they move around. Their wings spread so high it was dreadful in sight and their wings had eyes all over them. This is a gruesome description. What is this?

Sitting above the four living creatures was the Almighty God, and when Ezekiel finally saw this, he had had enough and fell on his face when he heard the voice of the Lord that spoke. We have not found out who the living creatures are; but if you remember what set on each side of the tree of life in the garden and what surrounds the mercy seat, you'll know what they are. But the next chapter will tell us, these are cherub angels that go with the Lord everywhere He goes. 

This is simply what Ezekiel 1 is sharing with us on the onset.  What Ezekiel saw was a vivid description of the Lord and His surrounding cherub angels.  What we see on TV is not the normal depiction of an angel; these things are weird and beautiful at the same time.  Dreadful wings, eyes all over, feet like cow, four faces on one head; this is not the type of guy I’d like to walk into a room for a business deal.  This sounds more like a sci-fi movie.  This is the reading and study of Ezekiel 1.
