The 44th day – The Glory of God

Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifty 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. — Ezekiel 1:1 (KJV)

Today we are on the book of Ezekiel, here is a little background knowledge:

Ezekiel, known as the Visionary Prophet, his name means “God will Strengthen“, (a suitable one for his message.) He was born and raised in the land of Judah, was preparing to become a priest in God’s temple when the Babylonians attacked in 597BC and carried him away along with 10.000 other captives. The nation of Israel was on the brink of complete destruction. Four to Five years later, when Ezekiel was 30 (the normal age for becoming a priest), God called him to be a prophet. He served as a prophet to the exiles in Babylon from 593-571 B.C

Here in the first verse of his book, Ezekiel describes how the heavens were opened and he had visions of God in Babylon. Here is a video animated Ezekiel chapter 1 – The Glory of God:
