Wheels 1:15,16 Ever notice how often the calling of a prophet is preceded by the coming of an angel.

Holy One 1:26-28 The most awesome part of the vision is the Lord seated on a throne and surrounded by an unearthly corona.

Installation 2:1,3 It is not the angels that must carry the word. It is a humble human, a prophet like you and I.

Rebellion 2:4 Anything to tickle the ears is now acceptable. See 2 Tim. 4:3

Luminary Word 2:5,6 The message is the word that gives grace and glory.

Exemplary story: As a youth I delighted in hearing the singing of an old spiritual. Reflect on the words of the first verse and the chorus of “Ezekiel and the Wheel:”

Ezekiel saw the wheel way up in the middle of the air. Now Ezekiel saw the wheel in a wheel, way up in the middle of the air.

Chorus: And the big wheel run by faith, good Lordy, and the little wheel run by the grace of God; in the wheel in the wheel in the wheel good Lordy; way in the middle of the air.
