READ http://www.esvbible.org/eze1

MEDITATION: The LORD taught His people that He would not and could not be boxed-in nor domesticated in a certain LOCATION, not even His own temple in Jerusalem. Other false gods of the Ancient Near East needed a temple to reside in and to "rule" the cosmos from there. The LORD of Israel DID NOT require it. He was MOBILE. So the destruction of His temple was inconsequential.

Did you notice that "wheel" or "wheels" occurred 10 times? (Ezek 1:15,16,19,20,21) "Wheel" is suggestive of the mobility of the LORD and His agents.

REFLECTION: Brothers and sisters, do you believe that the LORD is present everywhere and is reigning everywhere, including your lives wherever lived? Are you living according to His omnipresent reign?

Firstly, the LORD's prophet was now called AND he operated OUTSIDE the land of Israel and Judah. Ezekiel was called while "in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal" while "among the exiles" (Ezek 1:1-2), in enemy territory!

Secondly, prepare your tears for Ezek 10-11, where the LORD LEFT His temple, RELUCTANTLY. The "wheels" were associated with "the living creatures" (Ezek 1:15), but these followed the spirit. "Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels." (Ezek 1:20)

The LORD gave revision lessons to Ezekiel about why Judah was in exile. But the LORD also assured Ezekiel of His rule and presence with the remnant of His people, in the midst of their punishment preceding restoration of relation with Him.

APPLICATION: Love and worship the LORD, everywhere. In every sphere of our lives, abstain from sin, because the Holy LORD is there too. Remember, the LORD is omnipresent and is overseeing what you are doing right now.
