Wheels within wheels - Ezekiel's vision of the wheel within the wheel. The Four Faces - The meaning of the four faces of the four living creatures.
In April 2000, I was caught up in the Lord's presence and had a vision of the "swirlings" of God. For the next seven days I spoke to no one. It was during this time of waiting on the Lord that I received the following revelation on Ezekiel's wheels.
Vision of the "Swirlings"
I saw what I understood to be the presence of God. There were many swirling clouds that closed in on each other in never-ending patterns and directions - these were His ways. They were unsearchable. The swirling wind of His presence gave way to more and more swirlings of His presence. I sensed that whole galaxies of them were about to unveil before me, and yet they would be unending.
A light shone in the midst of the swirlings and I could see a path. This was the highway to Zion, the roadway of His presence leading into greater and greater depths and revelations of His presence. The mist was so thick you could only see a short distance ahead, and the road turned frequently. It was impossible to predict or know where the swirlings would go. "You don't know which way the wind blows, so how can you plan tomorrow." The foolishness of man planning his future was apparent.
It was so easy to step off the road. One moment of not being aware of His presence and you stepped off into your own direction. The Lord was calling me to walk every minute in His unbroken presence if I was to stay on the highway. "Few walk this highway to the fulfilment of their calling. Most get distracted off it. Many never find it again."
Seeing the "swirlings"; all seemed very normal and natural to me, so I hesitated to call it a vision. Maybe it should be described as an impression, although I could definitely "see"; what I was seeing, so it was more than just inspired imagination. When you "see" something like this, what else do you call it?
I had never had a vision before and I was very keen to take it further. I somewhat foolishly tried to get more of the vision than I had received but it didn't work. I couldn't take the vision any further than was given to me, although I was aware that if I failed to cooperate in His presence ( if I was to try to get up off the floor for example ) then what I had would soon disappear and I would leave that realm.
After receiving this vision I felt the Lord wanted me to spend some time seeking Him, so I rented a small cottage in a quiet place by the sea for this purpose. I felt the Lord instructing me to fast all activity and conversation for one week. "Shut in with God, in the secret place, there in the Spirit beholding His face. Be still and know that I am God. You will give the land rest. Stop profaning my Sabbath. You are my Sabbath, My place of rest."
The Lord was instructing me not to be so concerned about the activities of this natural life, and to walk moment by moment by the promptings of His Spirit. I found that a difficult proposition, because we live in a world where so much activity is necessary. I asked the Lord, "How am I going to live in this world where a certain amount of activity is necessary?"
I received the following answer: "There
are different aspects of life and a corresponding
type of activity that accompanies each one.
Learn to recognise the moment, and in the
time of activity there is an anointing to
do what I've called you to do. Do not
step beyond the activity of the function
you are in. When you sense the Spirit lift
you will know. Go to Ezekiel and I will show
The following revelation on Ezekiel's
wheels unfolded over a seven day period.
An Interpretation of Ezekiel's Vision of the Four Faces
Ezekiel 1: 4-21
"Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind
was coming out of the north, a great cloud
with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness
was all around it and radiating out of its
midst like the colour of amber, out of the
midst of the fire. [ This is what I saw!
Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance:
they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings.
The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces. ...... And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went.
Now as I looked at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on the earth beside each living creature with its four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they went. When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went; and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When those went, these went; when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels."
Ezekiel 3 : 13
"I also heard the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels beside them, and a great thunderous noise."
Interpretation - Ezekiel - wheels - four faces
God is a God of ceaseless activity and yet He is always perfectly at rest. This is because His activity flows from His purposes in eternity where everything is already perfectly accomplished.
The four living creatures had the likeness of a man. Man was made to reflect the purposes and glory of God in his activity. The four faces of the living creatures represent the four faces of man ( four purposes, direction or focus. ) The wheel beside each creature represents the particular activity associated with each of the four "faces of man"; in the earth. The noise of the wings of each creature is first the activity in the spirit realm, and the noise of the wheels beside them is the corresponding activity in the natural realm. They are to work together, side by side, and not independently of each other.
The wheels of activity are not meant to spin outside of My presence. My presence abides within the wheels of activity. It is only when My spirit lifts and you remain in your activity that the wheels spin out of control and produce nothing. I am the cog that is to spin your wheels. I am the wheel within the wheel. When My Spirit lifts, the wheels must lift with Me. Even your doings must be in My presence, and not just your times of waiting on Me."
Nothing is hidden from His sight. The rim
of each wheel is full of the eyes of Him
to whom we must give account. ( Heb. 4:13
The Four Faces
Man - Adam, son of earth. Natural responsibilities.
Lion - Kingdom authority. Spiritual gifts and ministry.
Ox - A man's labour.
Eagle - The spiritual dimension of a man's life. Prayer.
The Ox - A man's labour
In all labour that is yoked to the Master
there is rest.
"For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.";
The activity of the ox is completely controlled by who or what it is yoked to.
Dover, Ohio� February 20, 2012 � 07:45, Spotted an Eagle with nesting materials flying north on the west side of Route 77 at SugarCreek exit.
A few hours ago, approximately 1630 hrs, walking to Giant Eagle supermarket(yeah I know, no pun intended !), in Berea OH I saw a large bird flying. At first I thought an Egret, that I've often seen on the bridge overlooking the convergence of Coe Lake overflow and the Rocky River flowing under the bridge on Bridge St., noticed immediately wide broad wings, flapping quite often and thermal soaring with horizontal long broad wings, sans dihedral rocking(ala Catharthes Aura). At 800-1000 ft above me I could clearly see, against dark clouds, white head and tail feathers. As I observed for 6-7 mins I ascertained Bald Eagle. I attended Hocking College from 1990-'93, earning two AssocDegrees, with Ranger Services primary, Ornithology, , Birds of Prey, field work etc.. Couldn't get a job cuz I was Tooooo old at 50. If there's any irony, I was drafted in '66 and subsequently survived TWO FULL TOURS, Infantry in VietNam with the 101st Airborne Division, "Screaming Eagles".(We oft said amongst ourselves "KerrHee"[the call of the Bald Eagle]) AWESOME sighting today, third I've experienced in my 66 years! I was also wearing my 101st Airborne cap that I EARNED, in Ft. Benning GA, as I usually do.(If you don't know about it, look it up!?)

I spotted my first bald eagle around 4:30pm on 2/6/12. I was on Rt. 90 east near the 306 exit in Mentor, OH. The eagle was standing on the ground in the median strip. It may have been eating something.
I just saw a very large male fly over our condo building on Lake Erie in Fairport Harbor, Lake County Ohio. It circled a few times and then seemed to land somewhere here in town.

I was excited to see a lone bald eagle soaring over the intersection of Hardin road and St. Rt. 66 in Miami county near Piqua, Ohio. This was the first up close sighting I have experienced. It was beautiful.
My husband and I were very fortunate to see a pair of bald eagles in flight over Peterson Rd. in Miami Co., Ohio near the Farrington Reserve this past Saturday, Jan. 28th. My target photo was the Farrington Falls and upon taking pictures of the falls the eagles appeared over head and I was able to capture them with my camera as well! Such a beautiful site!
I saw a lone bald eagle on the western bank of the Ohio River at Marietta Ohio. It was in a about 15 feet from the riverbank approximately 0.25 miles from the intersection of OH SR 550 and OH SR 7. 1/25/12 @ approx 1730.
Bald eagle sighted January 22nd, 2012. In Miami County on Route 571 just West of Route 202. Saw it standing next to the river when we crossed over the bridge on 571.

As we were leaving the parking lot of Mad River Mountain Ski Resort, we spotted a bald eagle flying at treetop level above the Mad River. The eagle was circling over the pond used for feeding the snow machines and flew north along the river until flying out of site somewhere near SR 33. This was a fantastic sighting for us. We had just begun reading about sighting is Ohio last night on this web site.

Geauga County, Ohio - 1-15-12 - Today, I saw a single bald eagle sitting at the top of a tall tree near the intersection of State Route 44 and Burton Heights Boulevard. I am not sure if this is in Newbury Township or Burton Township, but it's not far from Burton Wetlands, Lake Punderson, and LaDue Reservoir. At first I thought it was a turkey, but when I got close enough I could clearly see that it was a mature bald eagle, with the unmistakable white head. Unfortunately I was not able to stop and take a photo. It was beautiful and I was thrilled to see it.
My son, Jaiden Kai, and I were on our way home from my mothers house in Hamden, Ohio. We were travelling out Lake Alma Road heading toward Wellston,Ohio. He spotted the eagle on the right hand side of the road right before the water treatment plant. I stopped the car and got out to take a picture when she swooped out of the tree and circled back toward Tordons Tree Farm. Pretty sure it was a female from what we could gather. AWESOME!!!
Saw a large, fully mature Bald Eagle over the Honda Wetlands Restoration project off St Rt. 739, near Raymond, Ohio. I thought I saw a pair 2 weeks ago but I was able to confirm this one on 1/8/12. The eagle flew directly over me at a height of 30 yards before it landed in row trees off an access road. It sat for a few minuted giving me a fantastic view about 50 yards away. It took off and sail towards Rt 33 and Honda Parkway. I never tire of seeing these wonderful birds.
Medina, Ohio 12/8/2011
We took a walk by the Medina Reservoir and on the other side the lake we saw a mature bald eagle in a tree. It stayed there about 20 minutes, circled a few time and then took off.

On December 31st, 2011, I saw a pair of bald eagles flying overhead in Troy, Ohio. I was walking my dog along the Great Miami River Recreational Trail, which bisects several large gravel pits near Dye Mill Rd, when i saw the birds. Ive also seen bald eagles periodically this year at Eastwood Lake, near Dayton.
I spotted a pair at dusk on 12/30/11. They were roosting behind my house in the north end of Newark, Ohio on Stewart Road. After reading through this site, I believe they were a mating pair as one was smaller than the other. Both were mature with full White heads and tails. Very exciting!
December 28, 2011, at about 11:00am, I was driving on New Carlisle Pike in Dayton when I saw two large very dark colored birds fly into a field. As the first one was landing I could see white tail feathers and the white head. I looked forward to see where I was going and when I looked back they were both on the ground and that's when I realized they were both bald eagles. I have seen some large dark birds soaring over my house recently that I knew were much too large to be our normal red tailed hawks, I now believe these have been the eagles all along.
For the past 2 winters we have had a pair of eagles hanging out in the pine trees in our front yard. On December 27, 2011 we saw one of them for the first time this winter. We live very close to the Cuyahoga River and figure that is good "fishing" for them once winter starts. He/She is, however, about 4 weeks late arriving this year. The last 2 years they arrived around the 1st of December��perhaps due to the fact the past winters were so hard. We haven't seen him/her for a few days but are watching each night.
