"And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain"
The beginning of Ezekiel's "visions of God":
"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."
A year later, a second, and more "personal" vision of "The Lord God" (keep that specific Name, "The Lord God," in mind for the Fact Finder question below).
"And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of The Lord God fell there upon me. Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber. And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
Fact Finder: Although Jesus Christ plainly and authoritatively stated, centuries after Abraham, that no man has seen God The Father (i.e. John 6:46), the Scriptures also plainly say that Abraham (and others, such as Moses) actually saw, and actually spoke with, The Lord. How is that?
