Ezekiel Bible Background

By Don Ruhl

Ezekiel saw things while living on the Earth, that we shall not see until after we have left the Earth. Imagine what he saw as recorded here,

And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell upon me there. Then I looked, and there was a likeness, like the appearance of fire—from the appearance of His waist and downward, fire; and from His waist and upward, like the appearance of brightness, like the color of amber (Ezekiel 8.1–2). 

Now Ezekiel saw something, or rather someone magnificent. Picture what he saw. He saw someone that it looked like below His waist it was fire, and above his waist he saw a bright color, resembling amber. Just picture that the rest of the day.


  • What magnificent sights have you seen on the Earth?
  • What magnificent sights do you anticipate seeing in Heaven?
