Jeremiah is the prophet that God tells his messages to back in Judah. Just because he stayed there and didn't get taken as a prisoner to Babylon doesn't mean his job is easy.

My name is Ezekiel and I am the prophet God gives the messages to for the people who are prisoners here in Babylon.

I was thirty years old when God first gave His messages. 

I was by a river in Babylon when God gave me this amazing vision. 

I looked and saw a huge dust storm come from the north, an large cloud with lightning flashing from it, a huge ball of fire glowing like bronze. Inside the fire were what looked like four creatures full of life.

Each looked like a human being, but also had four faces and four wings. Their legs were as sturdy and straight as columns, but their feet were hoofed like those of a calf and sparkled from the fire like burnished bronze.

On all four sides under their wings they had human hands. All four had both faces and wings, with the wings touching one another. They didn’t turn but went straight forward.

Their faces looked like this: In front a human face, on the right side the face of a lion, on the left the face of an ox, and in back the face of an eagle.

The wings were spread out with the tips of one pair touching the creature on either side. The other pair of wings covered its body. Wherever the spirit went, they went.

The four creatures looked like a blazing fire, or like fiery torches. Tongues of fire shot back and forth between the creatures, and out of the fire, bolts of lightning. The creatures flashed back and forth like strikes of lightning.

As I watched the four creatures, I saw something that looked like a wheel on the ground beside each of the four-faced creatures. The wheels were identical, sparkling like diamonds in the sun. It looked like they were wheels within wheels, like a gyroscope.

I'll tell you more about these amazing creatures next time.
