Ezekiel 10

Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne.

And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.

Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.

Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.

And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out.

And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man’s hand under their wings.

And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubims, one wheel by one cherub, and another wheel by another cherub: and the appearance of the wheels was as the colour of a beryl stone.

10 And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel.

11 When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.

12 And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had.

13 As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.

14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

15 And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar.

16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them.

17 When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up, these lifted up themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in them.

18 Then the glory of the Lord departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.

19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the Lord‘s house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

20 This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.

21 Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.

22 And the likeness of their faces was the same faces which I saw by the river of Chebar, their appearances and themselves: they went every one straight forward.

  1. 1 Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne.

    2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.

    3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.

    4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    5 And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

    6 And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.

    7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out

    .The fire being taken from between the wheels, under the cherubim, Ezekiel 1:13, seems to have signified the wrath of God to be executed upon Jerusalem. It intimated that the fire of Divine wrath, which kindles judgment upon a people, is just and holy; and in the great day, the earth, and all the works that are therein, will be burnt up.

  2. Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord . The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
    Ezekiel 10:4‭-‬5 NIV

    Just as the man of God preached a few weeks ago, we are drawing closer to You, O God. I can’t wait to see Your glory with our own eyes and see angels with our own eyes. I can only imagine seeing a sight such as the Lord allowed Ezekiel to see. How can we purge ourselves from the world and easy thinking until we get to a place of such faith and absolution in God that our minds become unlocked to see the wonders He has for us to see. He says Call on me and I will show you great and mighty things.

  3. Ezekial 10:8-22
    This warn sinners to seek the Lord while he may be found, and to call on Him while he is near, and cause us all to walk humbly and watchfully with our God.

    10:4 Then saddest event witnessed by Ezekial was the departure of the Lord’s glory from the temple.

  4. Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
    4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    This happened right after God had Ezekiel destroy what was evil, this happened after he obeyed God. the spirit of God will always descend when we obey. when we step out there and do what God tells us, no matter how difficult or absurd it may seem, His presence will be known.

  5. In the NLT, this chapter is titled, “The Lord’s Glory leaves the Temple”.

    He removed His Glory from the place where it was no longer honored and welcomed. As our bodies are now the temples in which He chooses to dwell, the same can happen to us if we choose to begin living an unholy, sinful life. God is Holy and Righteous, and will not dwell where sin is. We all have to make the choice: “Who is welcome in my temple?”.

  6. Ezekiel 10The Message (MSG)

    The Temple, Filled with the Presence of God
    10 When I next looked, oh! Above the dome over the heads of the cherubim-angels was what looked like a throne, sky-blue, like a sapphire!

    2-5 God said to the man dressed in linen, “Enter the place of the wheels under the cherubim-angels. Fill your hands with burning coals from beneath the cherubim and scatter them over the city.”

    I watched as he entered. The cherubim were standing on the south side of the Temple when the man entered. A cloud filled the inside courtyard. Then the Glory of God ascended from the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the Temple. The cloud filled the Temple. Court and Temple were both filled with the blazing presence of the Glory of God. And the sound! The wings of the cherubim were audible all the way to the outer court—the sound of the voice was like The Strong God in thunder.

    Lord I pray we will continually allow Yoyr presence to fill us. That we will not go after the things of this world and lose what You have given us. Let Your Glory surround us. Be within in us. Let Your power be seen and felt through out our city . Let it flow freely through us. Help us to guard Your Glory by maintaining holiness within our hearts and portraying it on the outside In dress and actions attitude and spirit so that others will be drawn to You for the Kingdom .
    In Jesus Name !

  7. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    18 Then the glory of the Lord departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.
    19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the Lord‘s house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

  8. THY KINGDOM COME
    THE SUPERNATURAL

    3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
    4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.
    5 And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.
    6 And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.

    We learn from the experience of Ezekiel that GOD is creative in demonstration of HIS power. When we consider the ingredients in the supernatural demonstration here before Ezekiel.

    1. Light
    2. Glory
    3. Sound of worship (wings)
    4. Voice of GOD
    5. Fire
    6. Wheels (flow, progress, advancement)

    When we are BLESSED by The Kingdom of GOD we will witness THE SUPERNATURAL demonstration of the GLORY of GOD. Fears are forgotten, troubles are tames, storms are stymied. FIRE purifies instead of destroys.

    Obedience to the WORD of GOD and submission to the autority of GOD invites the POWER and GLORY of GOD in our midst.

    Lets GO today and Seek FIRST the Kingdom of GOD.

  9. When the cherubim moved, the wheels moved with them. When they lifted their wings to fly, the wheels stayed beside them. When the cherubim stopped, the wheels stopped. When they flew upward, the wheels rose up, for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. Then the glory of the Lord moved out from the entrance of the Temple and hovered above the cherubim. And as I watched, the cherubim flew with their wheels to the east gate of the Lord ’s Temple. And the glory of the God of Israel hovered above them.
    Ezekiel 10:16‭-‬19 NLT
    Holy can’t not dwell and his sinful place

  10. Verses 3-5 AMP “Now the cherubim were standing on the right side of the temple when the man entered; and a cloud [the Shekinah glory of God] filled the inner courtyard. Then the glory and brilliance of the Lord moved upward from the cherubim to [rest over] the threshold of the temple; and the temple was filled with the cloud and the courtyard was filled with the brightness of the Lord’s glory. And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard [even] as far as the outer courtyard, like the voice of [a]God Almighty when He speaks.” What an awesome sight and sound experienced here. We too can let the glory of the Lord live within us and hover of us, as we are the temple of God.

    1 Corinthians 3:16 CEV “All of you surely know that you are God’s temple and that his Spirit lives in you.”

    1 Corinthians 6:19 CEV “You surely know that your body is a temple where the Holy Spirit lives. The Spirit is in you and is a gift from God. You are no longer your own.”

  11. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    5 And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

  12. Ezekiel 10:4 (English Amp) Then the glory of the Lord mounted up from the cherubim to stand over the threshold of the Lord’s house ; and the house was filled with the the cloud, and the court was full of brightness of the Lord’s glory. This is what God let happen to destroy evil. When there is know sin and we do what God said to do his presence is known. God told Ezekiel to destroy all evil. After Ezekiel did this God presence will be well known you can rest assure.

  13. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    From heaven to earth.

    When I think of the cherub, I think of an angel. And when we think of angels we think of heaven.
    The threshold of the house, I see this as a type of earth.
    The glory of the Lord came from heaven down to earth. And the house which represents us as a house for the Lordwas filled with the cloud, a type of the Holy Ghost. God was showing Ezekiel what he was going to do. He would come down from heaven and create a way for His Spirit to come into our lives and dwell with man. Wow.!!!!!
    Thy Kingdom Come, thy will done, on earth as it is in heaven. Let His Kingdom reign in our lives.

  14. Ezekiel 10:4
    “Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house: and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’s glory.”

    LORD, let Your GLORY Fill the House today!!

  15. The glory of the Lord moved out from the entrance of the temple
    and hovered above the cherubim.
    Ezekiel 10:18 NLT

    For the last two days we have learned the importance of holiness. As I meditate on this passage the glory of the Lord left the temple because of the impurity that was in the temple. When we come together and offer sincere worship the glory of the Lord will fill the house and we will see a Supernatural atmosphere. when I was in the world, I was introduced to the Pentecostal Doctrine. when the doors of that temple ware open I felt something. people were worshiping the Lord sincerely and I felt something that I had never felt before.

  16. Then the glory of the Lord departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.
    Ezekiel 10:18 KJV

    Woe be unto us, should we ever grieve the Spirit of our holy God enough to cause His glory to depart! Without the glory, there is no covering of God’s grace. We choose: live a life that gives God glory, and His glory will abide on us and protect us; if not, the glory will depart and leave us defenseless.

    And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
    Malachi 2:1‭-‬2 KJV

    Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward.
    Isaiah 58:8 KJV

  17. 13 As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.

    14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

    15 And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar.

    16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them.

    17 When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up, these lifted up themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in them.

  18. When we look upon even the mighty angels spoken of in prophecy, note the words of the prophet concerning them: ‘This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.’

    He knew that they were ‘the cherubims’ because they remained under the power and authority and blessing of almighty God! They may have been powerful in and of themselves… but they knew the source of that power and blessing and wanted it to remain. They were there to accomplish the will of him that sent them!

    This should speak to us today as well. It’s not about us… it’s always been about him! It’s not about our ability… because it was given from him to us to accomplish his will! Not our will, not our way, not our direction, but God’s purpose in our life accomplishing his desire for his kingdom! In Jesus name!

  19. Then I looked up, and behold,in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubim’s there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne..

  20. iLove the Kingdom
    Hollywood aint got nothing on God! You thought aliens were scary…Ha, aliens are fake and a figment of men’s imagination, but these creatures are real and exist. Some folks might find these scriptures hard to understand and hard to believe but wait just a cottonpicking minute. Can you imagine having never seen and never heard of an hummingbird. If someone tried to explain it to you it would be hard to imagine it could exist.

    Hummingbirds are small, colorful birds with iridescent feathers. Their name comes from the fact that they flap their wings so fast (about 80 times per second) that they make a humming noise. Hummingbirds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. They are also able to hover by flapping their wings in a figure-8 pattern. They have a specialized long and tapered bill that is used to obtain nectar from the center of long, tubular flowers. The hummingbird’s feet are used for perching only, and are not used for hopping or walking.

    God’s creation is amazing and we haven’t seen the half of it yet!

  21. God gets angry with us because he loves us and wants us to do right in his sight.
    “Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me”

  22. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    Everything changes in the Kings house! Can you imagine the man who entered and was in the midst of God’s glory? Talk about mind blowing!!

  23. 4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    I can still remember opening my eyes after receiving the Holy Ghost and seeing nothing but brightness. Like as if scales were lifted from my eyes! I was living in darkness for so long when the lord filled me with his spirit I received something I had never had and it was beautiful. Everything so bright and vibrant, I really pray that you don’t let your light go dem. That you keep the oil going and that light of yours burning bright day in and day out. Wake up seeking your purpose and asking God to send HUNGRY people wanting the word your way.

    iBless you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

  24. 4 Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord.

    Thy kingdom come into this temple! God I pray that daily I’ll make myself a temple for you. When people see me I pray they see you God!

  25. And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel.
    Ezekiel 10:10 KJV.
    I heard a story about a man who received inspiration from this scripture. He invented the roller that goes in all directions A Wheel in the middle of a wheel. It just goes to show you you can get inspiration from anywhere in the Bible.

  26. Gods Grace

    4 Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord‘s glory.

    Even in this time of judgement of Israel, a time of great bondage in the land of Babalon, God stood at the gate of the temple so that all the people and the priest could see him so that they would know that just because they were backslidden, God himself was still God. God was showing the people that he, no matter what they did, was unwilling to give up on his plan or them. He was also making a statement of grace before its dispensation. God was saying “If you will return and repent, I will be right here, where I always was, to receive you again.” The message is still the same today. No matter how far we go, God is always straddling the threshold of the church, inviting us back home. Let us apply this principle to those that God himself will bring in in the last days that are the truest meaning of “afar off”. If God will grant us repentance, the church surely will.

  27. God is moving the two questions we must ask is will we let him and Will we be in position when He moves on our behalf?

    It is important to allow Him to do His will and we are to align with what he’s doing.

  28. When we talk about God’s glory, we speak of his power. It is his glory that will surround us in the midst of darkness. I thank God for who he is and give him thanks and glory everyday.

  29. Ezekiel 10:4 (KJV) Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, [and stood] over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’S glory.

    The court was full of the brightness of the glory of the Lord. The whole place is as full of the glory of the Lord. It can be hard to fathom that much glory.

  30. “Therefore, tell the exiles, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Although I have scattered you in the countries of the world, I will be a sanctuary to you during your time in exile.
    Ezekiel 11:16 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/ezk.11.16.NLT

    Even when we feel alone and find ourselves in situations that we don’t understand. He is still there and our help when we are going through the toughest times.

  31. 11 When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.

    And they turned not as they went but to the place where the head looked they followed. Great leadership principle if you look at it. You can’t just go off and do your thing for you won’t go anywhere. You follow the head or leader that you can go in harmony and unity and get somewhere.

  32. I will recieve the word of God! His word is true and real and holg! Some may say his word is just a book, but we know that thw word of God is God!

  33. 16 When the cherubim moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the cherubim spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not leave their side.

    God designed these cherubims with a purpose they are designed in a distinct manner. They have wheels, faces with many eyes and wheels. They hear the order that God gives them to take up coals and they obey without hesitation. God has also given us special tools to follow after him, he laid down his life and raised himself from the dead, the gave us the gift of the Holy Ghost. His Spirit dwelling within us to direct, lead and guide us and all we have to do is obey. A servant heart is what God is looking for and one who will faithfully serve him no matter what.

  34. 19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the Lord‘s house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

  35. “Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house: and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’s glory.”

  36. Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord . The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
    Ezekiel 10:4‭-‬5 NIV.

    The majesty and glory of God is outstanding and seen in these verses. God’s glory filled the temple. And the sound of the angels wings could be heard all around. God’s glory is unmatched nothing in this world can compare to it.

  37. 20 This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.
    The angels of the Lord were created by him for his glory to both praise and do his perfect will. How much more does he love his children that have not seen him and yet willingly choose to serve him and him alone.

  38. 4Then the glory of the LORD rose up from above the cherubim and went over to the door of the Temple. The Temple was filled with this cloud of glory, and the courtyard glowed brightly with the glory of the LORD.

    The LORD’s glory can be felt anywhere. Not only at church, but at home, at work, or while driving. It’s up to you to feel his presence and praise him.

  39. 4 Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord.

    1 Kings 8:12-13 KJV
    12 Then spake Solomon, The Lord said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
    13 I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in for ever.

    1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV
    16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

    The day the prophets of old desired to see and experience, we have been given the opportunity to live in such days as these. These great men of God we only privileged to see a glimpse of His glory.

    But Jesus, laid His life at the cross for all of man kind, and when “it was FINISHED” the dividing veil in the temple of God split in two. And for the first time, we have direct access to the Holy of Holy.

  40. The Lord said to the man in linen clothing, “Go between the cherubim and take some burning coals from between the wheels.” So the man went in and stood beside one of the wheels.(Ezekiel 10:6 NLT)

    The firey coals being taken from between the wheels, under the cherubim, is like Ezekiel 1:13, and seems to have signified the wrath of God to be executed upon Jerusalem. It signifies that the fire of wrath, which kindles judgment, is just and holy. Like Israels judgment here, our world today is coming to an end and in the great day of judgment, the earth, and all the works that are therein, will be burnt up.
