Yechezk'el (Ezekiel) Chapter 10

Chapter 10 is a continuation of the vision that Yechezk'el was having in chapter 9.

Yechezk'el 10:1-2 I looked, and I saw the likeness of a throne of sapphire above the expanse that was over the heads of the k'ruvim (cherubim). The L-RD said to the man clothed in linen, "Go in among the wheels beneath the k'ruvim (cherubim). Fill your hands with burning coals from among the k'ruvim (cherubim) and scatter them over the city." And as I watched, He went in.

The corresponding letter to this chapter is Yod - metaphysical and divine letter meaning hand - the right hand of G-d.

Here we again see the Father talking to the Son. Yeshua is the man clothed in linen and he is the right hand of the Father. He fills His hands with burning coals. The coals represent purity and purifying.

This is confirmation of Yeshua's deity, as the chapter number indicates "the right hand of G-d", Yeshua takes the coals in His hand.

Yesha'yahu (Isaiah) 6:6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs.

Notice in Isaiah the seraphim used tongs to handle the burning coals. Here, in Yechezk'el, Yeshua uses His bare hands. What a guy!

Here we see a throne of Sapphire. Remember a "SEA" of sapphire is also mentioned in Revelation at the feet of Yeshua. The creatures below in Revelation are similar but different than the ones mentioned in verse thirteen of this chapter. The blue represented His heavenly and Holy character of the Father and the Son.

Revelation 4:5-8 And from the throne proceed flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of G-d; and before the throne there was, as it were, a "SEA" of glass like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. And the first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say,

This is also the hidden meaning of the Song of Solomon 5:14 for our Messiah.

Ezekiel 10:3-5 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the temple when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court. Then the glory of the L-RD 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 L-RD. The sound of the wings of the k'ruvim (cherubim) could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of G-d Almighty when he speaks.

The Shekinah glory prepares to leave.

Yechezk'el 10:6-8 When the L-RD commanded the man in linen, "Take fire from among the wheels, from among the k'ruvim (cherubim)," the man went in and stood beside a wheel. Then one of the k'ruvim (cherubim) reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out. (Under the wings of the k'ruvim (cherubim) could be seen what looked like the hands of a man.)

Hands of a man represent the hands of the Messiah and His humanity.

Yechezk'el 10:9-12 I looked, and I saw beside the k'ruvim (cherubim) four wheels, one beside each of the k'ruvim (cherubim); the wheels sparkled like beryl . As for their appearance, the four of them looked alike; each was like a wheel intersecting a wheel. As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the cherubim faced; the wheels did not turn about as the k'ruvim (cherubim) went. The k'ruvim (cherubim) went in whatever direction the head faced, without turning as they went. Their entire bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of eyes, as were their four wheels.

He who keeps Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. He is all knowing. (omniscience) There is not a sparrow that hits the ground that He does not know about.

Matthew 10:29-31 "Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. "Therefore do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows.

The k'ruvim (cherubim) where discussed in chapter one. This is their second appearance in the book of Yechezk'el.

Yechezk'el 10:13-14 I heard the wheels being called "the whirling wheels." Each of the k'ruvim (cherubim) had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

The face of the k'ruvim (cherubim) represents his servanthood- Yeshua is also the Angel of the L-rd. The face of a man again represents his humanity. G-d comes down as a man to dwell among His people in the flesh. The lion represents His Kingship and that He is from the line of David. He will reign one day in Israel. The eagle again represents His Deity.

One of the disciples of Yeshua was so amazed at Him rising again that when T'oma (Thomas) saw His hands and feet pierced, he said, My Lord and My "G-D". He was totally man and totally G-d.

Yochanan (John) 20:26-29 And after eight days again His disciples were inside, and T'oma (Thomas) with them. Yeshua came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst, and said, "Peace be with you." Then He said to T'oma (Thomas), "Reach here your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing." T'oma (Thomas) answered and said to Him, "My L-rd and my G-d!" Yeshua said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed."

It will take the same for the nation of Israel to finally realize this truth. This will happen in the future.
