Wheels of Prophecy

The wheels of Ezekiel’s  prophecy are the wheels of God’s providence. The four beasts are the emblems of something divine; the four attributes of God that manage the world are wisdom, power, goodness and justice.. It is very fitting that the prophecies of John are introduced with these four managers of the wheels of providence. It is the manifestation of these four in God’s works and dispensation that continually praise and glorify Him. When God’s glory is shown forth in these, then the church also praises him. Man – wisdom, Eagle – justice, Lion – power, Ox – goodness.”  — Michael Stohlmeyer notes on  Jonathan Edwards Works the Miscellaneous Volume 13 pages 191 to 195

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
