Bible Trek 2016 - Ezekiel

Ezekiel, like Revelation, is a book filled with visions, and takes place approximately six to seven hundred years earlier. Ezekiel, a young priest of 25 was carried away to Babylon in the second siege of Juda occurring about 597 BC, and was 30 years old when God came to him by the river Chebar with the other captives. There he was shown a vision of God’s glory, administration, government, and move on the earth through a vision of four living creatures having the likeness of a man. They had four faces, four wings, feet like a calve, and hands like a man. Ezekiel saw a wheel within a wheel, and above the firmament of the living creatures was the likeness of a throne, and on the throne again, was the likeness of a man. Interestingly, around 60 times, throughout the book, is the phrase: “that they may know I am God,” and Ezekiel is referred to as “son of man.” God’s revelation, and move has everything to do with man, and he needs men through which to reveal His government, move, and administration. As seen in the four faces of the living creatures, we see the four aspects of Christ’s person and ministry. Matthew reveals His kingdom (the lion), Mark His serving (the ox), Luke His humanity (the man), and John His heavenly aspect (the eagle). Chapter. 1 of Ezekiel, presents a vision of the appearance of the glory of the Lord, revealing how God is manifested, how God moves, and how God administrates His government through the four living creatures. Through the coordination of the living creatures, God is able to move and administrate. In the second section (chapters 2—32) God comes as the consuming fire to judge His people and the heathen nations. After the judgment God comes in to recover His people by life. The third section (chapters 33—39) is the section of recovery. The fourth section (chapters 40—48), which concerns the holy building of God, comes out of the recovery by life and concludes the book. Thus, Ezekiel begins with the appearance of the glory of the Lord, seen in the living creatures, and ends with the holy building of God, out of which flows a river which waters the dry land. This indicates that God’s goal is the building and His means is through men, who are bold for His kingdom, like a lion; laboring as an ox in service; human as a redeemed man; and above this world, like a soaring eagle. God blows on the dry bones to raise up as people to cooperate with Him for His move for His government on this earth. As men, we should be the living creatures laboring; on the Lord, on the word, and on people, for His kingdom on this earth. This is why the Lord said that we should pray: “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in the heavens.”
