♣ More than Redeemer

Ezekiel's Vision

“And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. And upward from what had the appearance of His waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him. Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and I heard the voice of one speaking” – Ezekiel 1:26-28.

HOW SO MANY confine God to being Redeemer and yet He is before time and creation. He reigns eternally, robed in majesty and inapproachable light, that even angels, who have never known sin, cover their eyes for the brightness of His holiness. They were never redeemed but remain in their first estate, never ceasing to blissfully worship and obey – Oh! How they teach us that He is more than Redeemer; they marvel that God should ever be merciful to a fallen race in order to dwell in His Presence and behold in adoration the eternal revelation of Himself.
