Ezekiel Saw the Wheel

63 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I'm sure this topic has been on here before but, it never hurts get a refresher course!! Okay if your not familiar with Chapter one of Ezekiel in the Bible, please run to your book collection, pull out your Bible and flip to pg. 460. (At least that's what it is in mine. :P ) And read the first chapter.

Ezekiel- Chapter 1, verse 4.

As I looked, I saw a great storm coming toward me from the North, driving before it a huge cloud that flashed with lightning and shone with a brilliant light. The fire inside glowed like gleaming amber.

Verse 5-

From the center of the cloud came foour living beings that looked human,

Verse 6-

except that each had four faces and two pairs of wings.

Verse 13-

The living beings looked like bright coals of fire or brilliant torches, and it looked as though the lightning was flashing back and forth among them.

Verse 15-

As I looked at these beings,I saw four wheels on the ground beneath them, one wheel belonging to each.

Verse 16-

The wheels sparkled as if made to be from chrysolite. All four wheels looked the same; each wheel had a second wheel turning crosswise within it.

Verse 18-

The rims of the four wheels were awesomely tall, and they were covered with eyes all around the edges.

Uhm...Okay can somebody please tell me what this is all about?

They are often viewed as Cherubim like the one from the Book of Genesis. They are divine creatures that tend to guard things, such as the Ark and the Tree of Life.

^^^ That is the biblical interpretation. Now, here's the tricky part, was he speaking in spirtual terms, then I would say that is the correct interpretation. But if he really did see what he wrote, well, I couldn't begin to tell you what he saw. Maybe this is one of the first recorded cases of contact from another intelligent species, not necessarily ET, just another intelligence.

More than likely, he ate some mushrooms or something that made him hallucinate. Or he could've been writing an early sci-fi story.

Peace

I think most of the writing in the bible is basically metaphorically written. One must pay close attention to each word in order to know its true meaning, but there will always be speculation as to one or the other. Experts merely guessimate as well. I guess we'll never really know. :hmm:

I strongly agree with this. Jesus himself taught through parables - stories which were not necessarily true, but illustrated a point. The bible can be viewed as something of a parable. Whether the events it describes are true or not, it makes no difference. The message remains just as potent.

i believe he was just citing what he saw and describing it as best he could in the known language of the day. there were no words for energy fields, ufos, and any sciency lingo so he used old-skool words like wheel

Cherubim or Seraphim (sp). What Ezekiel witnessed was spiritual. Read the entire book, he was a prophet who saw into the spirit world. The original poster only posted a small section of the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel. There's alot more to the story then what was posted here such as Ezekiel saying the thing he saw was a living creature, and that the Lord spoke to him..etc... as I said, he was a prophet and saw into the spirit realm and from what he wrote, his vision was clearly a spiritual one.

I don't agree with ppl who claim the bible is all parables. Jesus did teach in parables, but he also made it clear when he was teaching in parables (and when he wasn't) and went on to explain what the parable meant. This is not a pattrern that is found throughout the bible. Old Testament prophets said what they meant and meant what they said - so did New Testament writers such as Paul, Peter and John.

So say one will never know is to ensure one never does.

I remember seeing a picture on the Internet about a month or two ago of an ancient coin showing what some say was "Ezekiel's Wheel" which looked like a UFO. Anyone know of this or shall I search Google Image?

M.A.D.:

Can you please elaborate? Where did you get the references to the eagle and the bull, etc. I get that you are comparing them to satellite images, and I even know the area (my family is from iles de la madeline) but I am a little confused...

the lights and people he could have senn were most likely a ritual.in tibet and other counties like it there is a good with 4 faces and 6 arms.like a sheeva. the light could have been from the fire that most rituals use that they practice.a storm was taking place so that must have been what made him think what he saw.

when looking towardes the north on the island your familie is from you will see the eagle face,like in flight. it is the northern part of the island,the face is gaspe pennusila,the loine to the right of the throne is p.e.i.,and the bull is seen first by its wings ,looking south on cape breton the wings are the two bay's on either side of the canso causeway.

Erich Von Däniken has written about this phenomenon in many of books; it's aliens for sure, but Ezekiel didn't know how to explain what he saw, as someone else in this thread wisely pointed out...
