The Glory of God in Flight

Date: 05/10/2014
References: 2 Chronicles 6:1-2, Ezekiel 1, Ezekiel 11

In Somon’s day a house was built for God to dwell, where his glory would be known (2 Chronicles 6:1-2).

Ezekiel chapter 1 & chapter 11 – we see the vision that Ezekiel the priest was given having images around God Glory of wheels and wings.

Just a few verses..

1:6 “But each one had four faces and each one had four wings.” (Amp)

1:20 “Wherever the spirit went, the creatures went and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit or life of the [four living creatures acting as one] living creature was in the wheels.” (Amp)

11:22 “Then the cherubim lifted up their wings with the wheels which were beside them, and the glory of the God of Israel [the Shekinah, cloud] was over them. (Amp)

(you can read through Ezekiel chapter 1 if you want)
