Commentary on
Ezekiel 1:24-26

1:24  And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.
1:25  And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
1:26  And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

Commentary on 1:24-25
[5 September 2007]: Revelation 19:6 explains this “noise of great waters”: “I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters.” Delightfully, this verse clearly states that the living people and those in their circles of influence will prove to be a great multitude. Thus, this verse simply states: “When the living people went forward in truth, I observed the evidence of their guarding Yehuveh’s  instruction, as the witness of many people, as clear as if the voice of the Almighty spoke, for it came from such a great host: when they stood for truth, they explained in simple terms their regard for Yehuveh’s ways. And there was a witness from their expanded understanding, when they stood for truth and explained in simple terms their regard for Yehuveh’s ways.”

Commenatry on 1:26 [5 September 2007]: The sapphire stone has been the symbol of the Hebrew’s deepest spiritual knowledge, the qabbalah, since ancient times. Exodus 24:10 clearly states that “Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel” “saw the Elohim of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness.” Isaiah 54:11 states that in the restoration of Israel, Yehuveh “will . . . lay thy foundations with sapphires.”
“Nazarites” received “their polishing . . . of sapphire.” What expanded truths are capable of being the very foundation of our beliefs and the polishing which completes our understanding? The qabbalah truths are indeed awesome above what we gain in simply understanding Yehuveh’s instruction. Here is the truest “higher education.” Lamentations 4:7.
“Above the expanded understanding of these living people was the likeness of a covering, as a sapphire stone of qabbalic understanding: and above the apparent covering was humanity exalted.”
