    This will take awhile.:)

    EZEKIEL 1-

    1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions "of God."(NOT FROM but OF!)

    4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal. (God is riding in a metal craft that is engufled in flames. I came to my own conclusion what of what it was....just think?)

    5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness.(GUESS WHAT THEY ARE?) He talks about wings in verse 6 but those wings don't mean wing wings...For instance. We see that the first pair of wings is just clothing.

    8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: (underneth their wings consists of human hands)

    15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.(riding in these crafts?)

    16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel.

    18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around.(when he sees eyes he is acctually seeing little lights, he does'nt comprehand the factors of flashlights, light bulbs, etc. He is a mere man.)

    20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

    21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.(this justifies that the wheels have the creatures in them at times)

    *Now after this we see the mention of the other wings the other two wings that the creatures have.

    24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings.(There wings make noise like any high powered source of technology does these days.)

    NOW HERE IS WHERE WE SEE GOD!

    26 And above the expanse over their heads (CREATURES HEADS) there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. (this throne a bigger craft) 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around.(gleaming metal is grey, the appearnace of fire is bright) And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw "as it were" the appearance of fire,(looks bright) and there was brightness around him.(<)

    28.....Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

    Ezekial is like A code for example.

    3:1 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.”

    No one is eating a scroll!!!!

    He obtaining the knowledge that he needs to tell.

    Ezkial 3

    12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me the voice of a great earthquake: “Blessed be the glory of the Lord from its place!” (he is scared out of his mind, this is really happening)13 It was the sound of the wings of the living creatures as they touched one another, and the sound of the wheels beside them, and the sound of a great earthquake. (there the group of them are just floating in the sky, what a site)

    23 So I arose and went out into the valley, and behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, like the glory that I had seen by the Chebar canal, and I fell on my face.

    Exodus 3:2

    And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed.

    That's becuz it is not a bush.

    An angel does not walk out of a bush?? BUT THEN AGAIN ITS NOT AN ANGEL!!!

    Exodus 3

    4 When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.”

    Now we see once again the angel speeks.

    13 Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

    ANGELS EAT!

    Psalm 78:25

    Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance.

    Judges 6:21

    Then the angel of the Lord reached out the tip of the staff that was in his hand and touched the meat and the unleavened cakes. And fire sprang up from the rock and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. And the angel of the Lord vanished from his sight.

    No spiritiual body needs to eat. Or even have technology so advanced it can suck up CAKES?(Thats odd)

    If an angel is body and lives with your so called god, that would mean god would have to be body to.

    All that ever happened was god was mistaken.

    And made out to be this BIG all knowing all seeing being that we have today, and even in christ time.

    The old tesement says your god can not even fit on earth!

    1 Kings 8:27

    “But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that I have built!

    2 Chronicles 2:6

    But who is able to build him a house, since heaven, even highest heaven, cannot contain him? Who am I to build a house for him, except as a place to make offerings before him? Mislead people hey!!!

    They thought the earth was square.

    Job 37:3

    Under the whole heaven he lets it go, and his lightning to the corners of the earth.

    They thought god would never become men.

    Numbers 23:19

    God is not man, that he should lie,

    or a son of man, that he should change his mind.

    Has he said, and will he not do it?

    Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

    This is why I mix science in with the bible.

    For if a man saw a cell phone 2,000 years ago he would call it the voice of god from a metal box.

    Re-read the bible!

    Adam and eve were put on the earth first RIGHT!!!

    How would we get blacks, how would we get whites, how would get asians.

    Even if eve was black and adam was white we would'nt get an asain.

    The bible is made to mislead you.

    Isaiah 3:12

    My people—infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths.

    Lamentations 2:14

    Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not exposed your iniquity to restore your fortunes, but have seen for you oracles that are false and misleading.

    2 Peter 3:16

    as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand...

    When you go to the bathroom think about who put you there. YOUR GOD DID, the most powerful being on the earth, yet we burn engery like cars. Every single one of us. Except of course for the trees, which is a proof that evolution is a lie.

    For if life started from plants.

    Then there is no reason for those plantes to start to burn anyother energy than what they already have.

    Which would be SOIL, sun, water.

    There is no reason why we would'nt all be plants right now today.

    I am about to fall asleep so good night to you. :0

    Source(s): I think I am going to edit the above and make it a couple of pages in my book?

    Most believe these to be the same as the Cherubim described by Ezekiel in Ezekiel Chapters 1 and 10. As such, they are closely associated with the movement of God's throne. They are seen in Revelation as worshipping God, and are always in His presence. One of the Living Creatures is responsible for transferring the wrath of God to the seven angels who pour out the seven bowls of wrath on the earth (Revelation 16:7).

    There is some discussion as to whether these are angels or other heavenly beings. I myself do not feel that titles are important; these are beings who are intimately associated with God and serve Him day and night.

    They are not men (or women).

    Could have been Peter, Paul, Luke, and Mark, or maybe John was one of them, or whoever the four apostles of the Apocalypse were, or whatever. I really don't know and doubt that it matters.

    Ezekial used symbolism to describe images in a vision of objects so advanced, he couldn't understand. People have tried to explain this as space aliens. This is just our current guess. I think this is just something that we will recognize as obvious when we see it.

    4 ¶ And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

    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.

    6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

    7 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.

    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.

    9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one astraight forward.

    10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

    11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

    12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

    13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

    14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning

    You could say pets of God!

    After the fall of Satan God created pets to guard the mercy seat
