Big idea: An unforgettable encounter with the very real visceral presence of the living God.
"Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance (brilliant light) around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory (kabowd) of the Lord. [This is what the glory of the Lord looked like to me.] When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking" (Ezekiel 1:28).
- Is Ezekiel's vision relevant to us today?
- Does this vision of God mean more to Ezekiel and to those in his time than it does to us today since our culture is different?
- What can we do practically to grasp this glorious vision for ourselves?
- Will or can such a vision help us overcome our real current pressing problems, issues and difficulties?
