Host's comment: "During the days of Israel's captivity in Babylon, the young priest Ezekiel sees a spectacular vision of the Glory of the Lord on a sapphire throne through a crystal sky surrounded by 4 four-headed (man, eagle, lion & ox), multi-winged creatures. Moving under the creatures were awesome wheels within wheels with eyes in their rims. The Lord thrusts a scroll into Ezekiel's hand. The scroll is so laden with warnings and sorrows there is writing on both sides. Ezekiel is commanded to eat the scroll and go and speak to the exiled Israelites of their offenses against God and their failure to heed His commands. When he put the scroll in his mouth, it tasted as sweet as honey. Ezekiel also prophesied of God's promise of restoration and protection of His Chosen People, "and then they shall know I am the Lord!" Read the dynamic Book of Ezekiel of fulfilled prophecies and prophecies concerning future times. (Ezekiel 1 & 36:22-38)"
