God is whatever He wants to be! So when the question is asked, "How does God reveal Himself unto man?", the answer is, "However He wants to, He's God!"
Why did God visit Ezekiel in His SUV (Space Utility Vehicle)? Did He have to? Certainly not! He could have revealed Himself to him from a burning bush, like He did unto Moses, right? Now it isn't written that Moses asked Him what He was doing in a bush, but it is written that he asked Him what His name was, remember?
Here's the conversation:
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
Therefore, God IS whatever He IS, whatever He wants to be! So when the question is asked, "How does God reveal Himself unto man?", the answer is, "However He wants to, He's God!" And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Now the plain fact is that God chose to visit Ezekiel in a Highly Polished Spectrum Bronze Vehicle, as Ezekiel describes it. So you can send me e-mails all day and all night long telling me you just find it hard to believe that God used transportation, but don't you think it is significant that the entire first chapter in Ezekiel, plus more to come in chapter 10, is devoted to the description of these flying vehicles?
There is a reason for it!
Our Father wants you and me, in this final generation, to KNOW that these vehicles exist.
As I said in the previous studies, no other generation, prior to the 21st. century, could have even understood what they are, and rightfully so, because no other generation was ever going to see them. But this generation IS GOING TO SEE THEM!
Wake up and understand the Word of God!
Remember that the name EZEK-I-EL means "Whom God Strengthens", and Adonai Yahveh wants to strengthen His servants, His watchmen, in these last days and PREPARE them for the Spectacular Supernatural Events (SSEs) that will befall us shortly! What do we mean shortly? When Satan and his angels are cast out of heaven in Rev. 12:7-9, they WILL BE DRIVING awesome SUVs, UFOs, IFOs, Flying Wheels, Flying Saucers, whatever you wish to call them, they are FOR REAL!
We make no apologies for teaching God's Word as it is written.
So let's continue in Ezekiel. The vehicles have lowered their landing gear and are standing still, and the Lord God with the brilliant, radiant, shekinah glory around Him on His throne, is about to personally address Ezekiel, who is on the ground, flat on his face, no doubt trembling in wet pants.
God likes to talk to people when they are standing up, not laying down. Now I'm sure Ezekiel heard Him say "Stand up", but based on the next verse it appears he needed a little help. Can't you just imagine laying there in front of this awesome flashing machinery with these living beings inside and then hearing "Stand up"? You immediately say to yourself, "Oh my God, what do I do? I can't move." Not to worry, God stood him upright.Ezekiel 2:1
And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.
When God makes a personal visit to tell you something, you can believe that whatever He has to say is of supreme importance. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
He now begins to speak to Ezekiel.
God sent Moses to Pharaoh to have His people set free from captivity, and they were! But now they have been taken captive once again, this time by the king of Babylon (Satan), and now God sends Ezekiel to the people, not just of Judah, BUT, to the whole House of Israel (the Christian nations located in western Europe, the isles of Britain and the Americas). And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.
Again, keep those vehicles in mind, so you remember, that this book of Ezekiel was written primarily for our generation.
This message from God to Ezekiel is to go forth today to the House of Israel and to the Nations. Do you know where the true House of Israel resides today? Do you know who sits right now upon the throne of David? God promised David he would never want for a man (or woman) to sit upon the throne of the House of Israel until Shiloh come? Jeremiah 33:17 "For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;" When God says something will be, it will be! So there has to be someone on the throne of the house of Israel this very day. Her name is Queen Elizabeth and yes, she is a direct descendent of King David.
The House of Israel and the House of Judah are two separate houses. (If you have maps in the back of your Bible, look at them and you'll see the division of the tribes. Judah and Benjamin comprise only the House of Judah.)
Today, most people know where Judah is (in part), but most people do not know where the other 10 tribes of the "House of Israel" are.
Unfortunately, we don't have time nor space to document the migrations of the tribes, but they have basically become the Christian nations of the world. For further help on this subject, obtain the booklet "The Abrahamic Covenant", by E. Raymond Capt or log unto (Live Links) to->> #1064 and #1020 on this web site.
Ezekiel didn't have to ask God His name, did he? God told Ezekiel that His people are resistant, hardheaded, and obstinate, but that he must go to them and say, "Thus saith Adonai Yahveh, the Lord GOD!" Adonai Yahveh is used 214 times in Ezekiel.Ezekiel 2:4
For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD.
 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
When and how will they know?
By his words?
When those who have read or heard the words of Ezekiel see what he tells them come to pass, and they will come to pass, then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
That's how the Word of God says it works!
Note: So it really doesn't matter if you believe the description of the highly polished bronze flying wheels or not, does it? Since you've already read of them, when you see them, YOU'LL KNOW that Ezekiel the prophet was right on!Ezekiel 33:33
And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
Pay no attention to the scoffers and those who look at you as if you are a nut (UFOs, yeah right!). They are a stubborn and a rebellious house. Question! Did you ever learn this saying when you were a kid: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Well, if you're an adult don't go around saying it, because even I'll call you a nut. But you can think it, for it works well for Ezekiel 2:6.Ezekiel 2:6
And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
This verse is indeed profound. For there is such a LACK of SPEAKING the WORD of GOD in these last days! That in itself is the fulfillment of the scriptures containing the Words of Jesus which He spoke concerning the "famine" in Mat. 24 and Mark 13. He said there shall be famine! Amos told us about it too! And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
So you can either turn on your Sunday morning TV shows and listen to the predictions of starvation, people going hungry, or you can read the Word of God and understand exactly what the famine of these last days is.
Would you believe it has nothing to do with food:
There is famine for hearing the words of the Lord, and so Ezekiel, a type of those who He strengthens this day, was told, "You speak MY WORDS TO THEM!"Amos 8:11
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
And they do wander even from "Sea to Shining Sea" searching for truth, and they can't find it! And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Yes, in this 21st century there is a great and dreadful famine in the land!
Are you willing to open your mouth and eat what God gives you?Ezekiel 2:8
But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
Or are you going to continue to eat the crumbs and garbage of Churchianity that is spewed forth across the pulpits of this land, which are starving our people and causing the great famine.
There are many who come in His name, as Christ said they would, claiming to represent Him as Christian ministers (just turn on TV or visit most of our so-called Christian churches), and through their traditions and lack of SPEAKING HIS WORDS (teaching the Bible, book by book, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse), they have produced a generation of Biblical illiterates.
If you think I'm being harsh or even judgmental, you "ain't seen nothin' yet"! For in this "Book of Strengthening" our Father Himself is going to tell it like it is to the preachers, as no other one can. He will even call them outright "liars" and call their doctrines "dung". He's a realist and a great communicator.
God now hands Ezekiel His Words to be spoken! You have them too! The same words! In your Bible! And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
You have to read the rest of this book - Ezekiel
with us for all 48 chapters.
This is interesting reading! If you have eyes to see!
