Ezekiel 10:3-5 (JDV)
Ezekiel 10:3 Now the cherubs were standing to the right hand of the house when the man went in, and the cloud filled the inner court.
Ezekiel 10:4 Then the impressive appearance of Yahveh rose from above the cherub to the threshold of the house. The house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of Yahveh’s impressive appearance.
Ezekiel 10:5 The sound of the cherubs’ wings could be heard as far as the outer court; it was like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
Why this spectacular sight and sound display if God was in the process of planning to judge his own people? I am thinking that he is showing that the people’s rebellion and idolatry have not limited his power to act.
Sometimes we talk about our faith as if it gives God power. That is never the case. Even if the whole world would reject God, it would not limit his power one bit. He is sovereign.
LORD, thank you for your unchangeable omnipotence.
