Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
How do you describe the indescribable? That must have been how Ezekiel felt as he was given a glimpse into heaven and tried to find words to describe the amazing things he saw. Sometimes though, the simplest comparisons are the most powerful. We can all relate to the beauty and wonder of a pristine rainbow arcing in the sky and though it can be explained scientifically, it still is a thing of beauty and majesty, a reflection of something of the glory of God!
