EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 5 of 6)      
LED BY THE SPIRIT:  "And when the Creatures moved forward, the wheels moved at their sides; and when the Creatures were borne above the earth, the wheels were borne too. Wherever the SPIRIT impelled them to go, they went wherever the SPIRIT impelled them and the wheels were borne alongside them; for the SPIRIT OF THE CREATURES was in the wheels. When those moved, these moved; when those stood still, these stood still; and when those were borne above the earth, the wheels were borne alongside them - for the SPIRIT of the Creatures was in the wheels." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 19 - 21 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

The ministry of the  LORD JESUS displayed the truth of these verses.  As MESSIAH YESHUA walked on this earth, HE was led in all things by the SPIRIT OF GOD.  This reality in HIS life is shown from the very beginning of HIS ministry:  "Then JESUS was led up by the SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil." [Matthew 4. 1] 

 

DEATH OF MESSIAH (Foreshadowed):
 "Above the heads of the CREATURES was a form, an expanse, with an awe-inspiring gleam as of crystal was spread out above their heads. Under the expanse, each had one pair of wings extended toward those of the others; and each had another pair covering its body. When they moved, I could hear the sound of their wings like the sound of mighty waters, like the sound of SHADDAI (THE ALMIGHTY ONE) a tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they would let their wings droop. From above the expanse over their heads came a sound. When they stood still, they would let their wings droop." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 22 - 25 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

When ELOHIYM created the universe, HE said there was to be "a firmament, an expanse, in the midst of the water, that it may separate water from water." [Genesis (Berepooh) 1. 6 Tanakh, Torah]  After the creation of the firmament, CREATOR GOD "called the expanse, Sky (Heaven)." [Genesis (Bereshith) 1. 8 Tanakh, Torah]  Over the LIVING CREATURES was a firmament or expanse.  The LORD JESUS performed HIS ministry under Heaven…on the earth.  HE walked and talked as no man had ever done.   After YESHUA had calmed the wind and the waves, the disciples marveled, saying, "WHO can this be? that even the winds and the sea obey HIM?" [Matthew 8. 27]   It was said of JESUS — "No man ever spoke like this MAN." [John 7. 46]  The uniqueness of the LORD MESSIAH is captured when the sound of the CREATURES' wings is said to be "like the sound of mighty waters of SHADDAI, the ALMIGHTY a tumult like the din of an army." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 24 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH was unique because HE IS GOD IN HUMAN FLESH

 

A climactic point is reached at this place in the chapter. Wings have pictured the protection of the ALMIGHTY ONE but the next two verses state, "when they stood still, they would let their wings droop (let down their wings)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 24 - 25 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

 

The LORD YESHUA, the HOLY ANOINTED ONE promised, "If I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to MYSELF." [John 12. 32]   The LIVING CREATURES STOOD STILL . . .JESUS went to the cross.   It was at that time, and at that time only in the life of YESHUA that the wings of GOD'S protection were let down.  The depravity and filth of sin of all mankind were placed on HIM at Golgotha’s Calvary.   In fulfillment of the prophecy, "MY GOD, MY GOD, why have YOU abandoned ME? Why so far from delivering ME and from MY anguished roaring?" [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 1 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  JESUS, the CHRIST OF CALVARY cried out at that time — "ELI, ELI, lama sabachthani , that is MY GOD, MY GOD, why have YOU forsaken ME?" [Matthew 27. 46]   The crowning moment of HIS ministry was coming, but first HE had to endure the crucifixion.  YESHUA had to suffer, abandoned by GOD THE FATHER. However, the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH would soon rise as SOVEREIGN GOD OF THE UNIVERSE.

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
May our Heavenly Father hear our prayers, that our long-awaited Messiah YesHUA, the Son of David, King of kings comes quickly. And, may His Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily, even in our day, Amen! 
May you be blessed with love, hope, health, wisdom and GOD’S incredibly amazing grace as you seek HIM.
 Our WONDERFUL SAVIOR is coming very soon, signs are all around us, lift up your eyes and behold our MAGNIFICENT REDEEMER. 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
