Ezekiel 1-3, Hebrews 1
“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
I love how in Ezekiel god tells Ezekiel that the people may or may not listen to him. He says this in almost every sentence. It’s not our jobs to ensure that people are listening, it’s just our job to speak when God gives us something to say.
28Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around.
Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
The passage in Ezekiel and Hebrews both are such displays of Christ’s glory. He upholds the universe with the power of His Word. His appearance is like burning embers and flashing of lightning. He is glorious and He is God, and yet He calls us friend.
27But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God.’ He who will hear, let him hear; and he who will refuse to hear, let him refuse, for they are a rebellious house.
