CHRIST APPEARS ON HIS THRONE HIGH AND LIFTED UP:

      The moment everyone is waiting for, is to see the Lord of glory. If he kept both feet on the ground, there would be a crushing crowd trying to reach him; and few would be able to see him of the millions of souls alive in Israel at the beginning of the Lord's thousand year reign. So it appears the Lord will be high and lifted up as Ezeziel the Prophet portrayed him in his prophecies: The verses are numerous and if you are not patient to read them all, you may miss the incredible nature of his prophecies. Remember, the Lord of glory comes back supernaturally with a supernatural army of angels riding on white steeds who go so fast he appears to be coming in white clouds in the 2nd Coming. What you are about to read is an extension of the 2nd Coming right at the beginning of the thousand reign. The other world action the Prophet describes, your eyes and mine have never seen; but by faith we can thrill at what it is going to be like to see the Lord of glory surrounded by such extraordinary power, our minds could not imagine it:

1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,

1:3 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.

1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.

1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.

1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.

1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

1:11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.

1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

1:20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

1:21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

1:23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

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 IT.

1:27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

ANOTHER PROPHECY SUPPORTS THE IDEA CHRIST WILL BE SEEN "HIGH ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE" (PSALM 99:1/9)


Psa 99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved. (This prophecy really expands on the first one quoted from Ezekiel the Prophet. King David or the author of Psalms is a prophet commanding the LORD in prayer form to: "LET THE PEOPLE TREMBLE." The prophet tells us the LORD sits between the cherubims, and when he sits; he sits on his throne. Once Christ returns in power and glory, do not expect him to sit in a common chair. For Christ to sit as God will be an earth moving experience for his people. 'LET THE EARTH BE MOVED."

Psa 99:2 The LORD [is] great in Zion; and HE IS HIGH ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE. (Christ is great in Zion. He has just conquered the earth and is establishing his global Kingdom. "HE IS HIGH ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE." Christ will be visible to all his people he has resurrected from the beginning of time upon the earth. Were he to stand upon the earth, this might not be so.)

Psa 99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy. (This refers to the Israelites. They will know the name of God whereas the Gentile nations will continue to refer to the Lord as Jesus Christ. The name of God is a well kept secret. It is represented by a tetragramaton JHWH which many have come to believe means "JEHOVAH." That is nothing more than a guess. The secret name of God was used by the prophets to work miracles. Once the Gentile nations have gone to their homelands, the Israeli nation will be able to praise the Lord's "GREAT AND TERRIBLE NAME." A name made terrible by the terribleness of the miracles the prophets worked.)

Psa 99:4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

Psa 99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; [for] he [is] holy.

Psa 99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

Psa 99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance [that] he gave them.

Psa 99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

Psa 99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God [is] holy.

      There is quite a bit of evidence in the above prophecies to indicate they all pertain to the Millenium Age.

      The millions upon millions of souls alive in Israel at the beginning of the Millenium Age will all be able to see the Lord from many miles away. Isn't that a wonderful thought! The Prophet Ezekiel did not tell the reader what to do with his incredible vision or where it should be placed among the prophecies. But it fits perfectly at the beginning of the supernatural reign of the Lord Jesus Christ, Jeshua HaMashiah. "Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus." Amen.

      And what do you think the Lord will say when he is seen high and lifted up gloriously on his throne? "Behold, it is I." (Isaiah 52:6) The Lord is wise. He uses few words.

      Here it is again. This time the text has been buried in religious dogma with believers presuming the statement Christ made, referred to his being lifted up on the cross to be crucified. "AND IF I AM LIFTED UP FROM THE EARTH, I WILL DRAW ALL PEOPLES TO MYSELF." (Saint John 12:32/33) Look at dogma with a practical eye for interpretation. Did Christ draw ALL PEOPLES to himself on the cross? No. Even when we look at the effect the cross has had on mankind from the first century to this present day, Christ on the cross is not drawing ALL PEOPLES to himself. However, at the beginning of THE MILLENIUM AGE when the Lord's feet explodes the earth into a roaring earthquake splitting the Mount of Olives just outside of Jerusalem, ALL PEOPLES who have been resurrected will be set down to join with all whom the Lord does not kill in THE HOUR OF WRATH.

      Somewhere as the sequence of the prophecies are fulfilled early in THE MILLENIUM AGE, the Lord of glory will be "LIFTED UP FROM THE EARTH" to be seen by "ALL PEOPLES." There is undoubtedly the better application of the verse toward any future fulfillment. Watch out for the quickie interpretations of religious dogma that sound right, but result in robbing you of the true vision the prophecies offer.
