Want to See Something Spectacular?

Do you want to see something spectacular? Here is what you should do. Read Ezekiel 1 slowly and imaginatively, that is, see in your mind what the prophet paints for you. Get each image and each part of the image in your mind before moving on in the reading. You will see a spectacular sight!
Ezekiel saw a whirlwind, then a cloud with a raging, self-engulfing fire in the cloud. Then he saw coming from out of the fiery cloud this, “Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man” (Ezekiel 1:5).
The prophet shows the details of the four living creatures (Ezekiel 1:6-14, which I believe are similar to the seraphim in Isaiah 6 and are the four living creatures in Revelation 4. All I can say is, “Wow!”
Later in the chapter you will see something above the four living creatures. Try to figure it out what you see, for it will help you to understand who the four living creatures are.
