Pamphlet 1187 Ezek 2-1
"God's Flying Machine"
When the President of the United
States travels overseas to visit a foreign leader,
he hops aboard Air Force One which takes off
and is then escorted by Fighter Jets to his destination.
You and I have no problem whatsoever
understanding what was just described,
because we have actually seen 5 tons of shiny metal fly so many times
that it is not at all unusual to us.
It's normal everyday life.
But imagine someone 2500 years ago
who actually saw something like a Jumbo 747
and four F-17 Fighter jets land right before his very eyes!
Well, Ezekiel did see "something
only the vehicles that he saw were circular
and more high-tech than our crude propulsion aircraft of the 21st century!
Ezekiel actually saw Universe One,
carrying the King of Kings on board,
escorted by the Four Zoon,
the Guardian Cherubim,
piloting their Highly Polished Bronze Vehicles (as Ezekiel called them).
In chapter 10 of his book,
he will call them "Flying Wheels"!
Let's pick up the action as Ezekiel
sees this Vision of a Lifetime
and tries his best to describe it for you and me!
Ezekiel 1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.
Think of the Eagle that landed on
the moon and its landing pods,
like the sole of a calf's foot,
at the end of the un-jointed gear (straight feet).
The landing gear on these vehicles
didn't have wheels
because they did not need to roll down a runway to lift off,
for they used a technology for propulsion that man hasn't discovered yet.
This incredible sight must have blown Ezekiel's mind!
Ezekiel 1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
A helicopter can pretty much do
but there is nothing in the universe as fast and mobile
as these highly polished bronze vehicles that Ezekiel saw!
How would a person 2500 years ago describe energy cells, beacons, flashing laser beams, etc.?
How about just something as simple as the colored lights on top of a police cruiser?
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
