And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. (Ezekiel 1:26)
Some people have had grand spiritual experiences. In an attempt to describe those events, the first thing they do is speak about it with signs and symbols in an attempt to make sense of it. Ezekiel offers pictures and interpretations of his vision. In the latter part of the vision, he sees that there is a revelation of God’s separation. That is, there is a holy otherness evident in this. There is nothing in nature, the celestial, the terrestrial, or the subterranean equal to God.
