“The Likeness of the Glory of the Lord” (Ezekiel 1:1-28)
FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..

And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking. (vs26-28)

We do God’s will, when we are sent by God. We read, “Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures [gospel preachers]. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the soles of calves’ feet [serving God’s people]. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze [made better by suffering]. The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings. Their wings touched one another [agreement]. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward [doing God’s will].” His messengers are straight forward people, walking in His steps, teaching what He commands, and obeying Him in the gospel of Christ’s preeminence (Col 1:15-20). We’ve seen His glory, sat down upon His throne, and we are sent to obediently reveal Him to others, so they can see the Son of Man, our Lord Jesus Christ. He reveals the gospel to us, sends us by the Spirit, and then we help others know God in saving grace, because He’s pleased to use men to save men, revealing Himself to us - His church, His pastors and teachers - so that WE may show Christ to others (2 Cor 1:3-7).

We are servants who lay down our lives, lovingly, for God’s people, using Christ’s gospel for other people’s good. Therefore, let the gospel shine forth, even to captives in spiritual bondage, chastisement, and under sin’s conviction (vs1-3). He says, “Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. On the fifth day of the month, which was in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, the word of the Lord came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the River Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was upon him there (vs1-3).” Let them see Christ on the throne saving all who believe upon Him, bringing the gospel to them expressly by the men whom He’s appointed (1 Thess 1:2-10). Let us never despair that God’s silence in permanent, or our forsaking is ultimate; He comes to us in the prison house and liberates the captives. Jesus Christ saves by showing His glory through the hands of men who have been sent by His Spirit and are obedient to His teaching (Matt 28:18-20). Do not neglect the ministry of others and see Christ for yourself, so that you can be useful because YOU’VE seen God.

Secondly, lightning gives light, and we shine as God’s witnesses (vs10-14). He says, “As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures [light giving]. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning. And the living creatures ran back and forth, in appearance like a flash of lightning [to enlighten the darkness].” We have seen God’s glory, so we show it, shining light in darkness and interrupting the darkest night, so that truth can be clearly seen, suddenly. We burn, and we flash on people, so they can see God is holy, sin must be punished, and the Remedy, Jesus Christ, being brought to faith. We show people His will, that they are to believe on Christ or perish, and we unfold what He’s done in saving sinners and His enthronement. We show people what they do not see, and God’s elect, the ones to whom the revelation is expressly sent in saving power, RECEIVE the message and believe the revelation. He is the Great Light who makes us light in the Lord (Eph 5:8-14; Phil 2:14-16).

Do not fear this flash of light; it’s instruction is unto salvation, so when reproved - when our ideas are found to be lies, and whenever God teaches us - simply bow, ask Him for forgiveness and cleansing, and be thankful that He cared enough to enlighten you. In the light, there is NO condemnation because we trust our Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, the propitiation for our sins (1 John 1:5-2:2). The light is good because it saves from darkness and helps sinners; it is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses.

Finally, God’s glory is Jesus Christ manifesting the Father, redeeming sinners, and reigning in absolute control (vs15-28). He says, “And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a Man high above it. Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day [God’s promise of mercy], so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.” He is the One who sends the living creatures, and He is who we see when we’ve heard from God, even Jesus Christ, alive from the dead, successful, and all powerful as Savior and Lord. Never forget God’s message is a Man, the Man whom He’s exalted, the Son of Man our God and Savior. Paul said, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified”, and again, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation [highest ranking]. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell (1 Cor 2:2; Col 1:15-19).

This vision is important because all who see the Son and BELIEVE on Him have eternal life (John 6:35-40). We see, so we can believe, and this is how comfort comes! Ezekiel is in captivity, but the revelation of Jesus Christ enlightens, eases the burden, and promises us restoration and a heavenly paradise. Israel had sinned and was reproved, and this may be you now, having forsaken God like Peter or refused Him like the Pharisees, but you now see Him as mighty to save, specifically revealed to be your comfort.

Do not fear. He comforts us, so we can comfort others. Receive His saving grace, acknowledging that He draws, He is God’s glory, the express image of His Person, and He saves by faith (Heb 1:1-4). The Subject of all the scriptures and every sermon is Jesus Christ, and His glory is GREAT in salvation (Ps 21:1-7). You hear from God when you see Him, and faith saves, so believe the vision.
