Ezekiel- The Amazing Creatures God Showed Me

Last time I described the most amazing creatures God showed me in a vision. 

My name is Ezekiel and God called me to be His prophet to His people in Babylon.

The creatures I mentioned last time went in any one of the four directions they faced, but straight, not curving this way or that. 

The rims were huge, circled with eyes. When the living creatures went, the wheels went. When the living creatures lifted off, the wheels lifted off. Wherever the spirit went, they went, the wheels sticking right with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When the creatures stopped, the wheels stopped.

Over the heads of the living creatures was something like a dome, shimmering like a sky full of cut glass, over their heads. Under the dome one set of wings was extended toward the others, with another set of wings covering their bodies. When they moved I heard their wings—it was like the roar of a great waterfall, like the voice of The Strong God, like the noise of a battlefield. When they stopped, they folded their wings.

And then, as they stood with folded wings, there was a voice from above the dome over their heads.

Above the dome there was something like a throne, sky-blue like a sapphire, with a humanlike figure towering above the throne.

From what I could see, from the waist up he looked like burnished bronze and from the waist down like a blazing fire. Brightness everywhere! The way a rainbow springs out of the sky on a rainy day—that’s what it was like. It turned out to be the Glory of God!

When I saw all this, I fell to my knees, my face to the ground. Then I heard a voice. The voice said, "Stand up."

I'll tell you more next time.

1. What could the creatures do?
2. What did the voice sound like?
3. What was like a rainbow?
4. Why did Ezekiel fall to his knees?
5. Who told Ezekiel to stand?
