Taking God Out of the Box

The vision that Ezekiel had revealed at least 3 things about God

  1. God is everywhere (omnipresence). You cannot escape the presence of God.
  2. The eyes on the wheels reveals God's omniscience (I Chronicles 10:9). The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God (Hebrews 4:13)
  3. Throne signifies the authority of God (omnipotent). 

Ezekiel is reminding us of the mystery and majesty of God. Have we lost the sense of reverence for God? Is God mysterious to you? Is God majestic to you? 

Ezekiel was so overwhelmed by God's presence that he could not stand or sit or even kneel, he got flat on his face before God.
