Ezekiel Event


593 BC Ezekiel witnesses an event which some writers have claimed sounds suspiciously like a UFO encounter. Josef Blumrich, former chief of the systems layout branch of NASA, set out to disprove such suggestions, however, from a careful analysis of the data available, he concluded that the vehicle described in the Bible actually was a UFO.



Old Testament Prophet Ezekiel watched a "wheel" descend from the sky. The craft landed on the banks of the Chebar River where Ezekiel was taken aboard and flown to the Tel Aviv Mountains. The full description of the object is found in Ezekiel Chapter 1.



The prophet Ezekiel reported the following incident in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar : ... And I looked and behold a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud and fire unfolding itself, and a brightness were about it, and out of the mist thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 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. And everyone had four faces, and everyone had four wings. 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 color of burnished brass.... When they went they went upon their four sides; and they turned not as they went. As for their wings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their wings were full of eyes round about them four. 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.



Ezekiel 1:4: "...Behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire unfolding itself and a brightness was about it... Out of the midst of fire...


...Out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures... They had the likeness of a man... They sparkled like the color of burnished brass."
