Prophet Ezekiel

      No Comments on Prophet Ezekiel

The prophet Ezekiel saw the glory of God leaving the temple in Jerusalem when the people of Judah were driven into exile, accompanied by angels, ascending and descending the ladder of the Name.

The same angels ascend and descend the ladder of the Name when wisdom returns from exile to restore God’s remnant to glory, curing confusion by healing division, deifying sinners on earth as God deifies his saints in heaven.

What Ezekiel saw was the glory of wisdom hallowing the people of God in exile, turning their exile into ecstatic home-coming, sorrow into joy. ¬†Prophecy is wisdom’s gift in¬†every generation, inspiring pure prayer, awakening hearts to glorification.

Feast of the Holy Prophet Ezekiel, 6th century BC.
