The Book of Ezekiel seems to be full of hints & traces that point to an ancient
encounter between humanity and a superior, technologically advanced society. Ever since E. von Däniken and J. Blumrich wrote about UFOs in a biblical
context, the visions of the prophet Ezekiel have increasingly become part of the ancient astronaut theory. The likeness of the glory of the
comes to mind, which Ezekiel described in great detail and seems to be more reminiscent of a modern-day spacecraft than the throne of God. I
have discussed and illustrated this episode extensively in my previous thread
the spacecraft description can also be found in the first chapter of the Book
However, this biblical book contains much more than just that, like for example: compound-like structures of great precision (Ez 40-46), deadly
weapons of destruction (Ez 9:2, more info here
), a man in "bronze", (Ez 40:3),
multiple departures & arrivals of the lord with smoke & clouds (Ez 10:1-5, Ez 43:1-5), a ground crew organization (Ez 9:2, Ez 46:9-10) ... and much
more that would fit perfectly well into an ancient visitation scenario IMO. Theologically speaking, such details are usually not relevant and the
references found in most publications rather focus on the religious & metaphorical interpretation of what happened. However, many of the descriptions
found throughout the book of Ezekiel are profoundly familiar to us today. For us, as a space age society, Ezekiel's observations make much more sense
in a technological context. Especially when acknowledging that he actually 'saw' what he describes, instead of attributing twenty years of documented
events solely to 'visions of God'.
So while a lot can be read about Ezekiel's spacecraft
, the rest of the
chapters usually don't get much attention, even though they perfectly tie in with a report about a technologically advanced humanoid civilization that
visited us some 2.600 years ago with an agenda or mission to interact with humanity. In the 1970s, Blumrich did an excellent analysis of this
situation based on the book of Ezekiel. Here's an excerpt that substantiates the notion that 'they' were in fact humans or at least 'appeared' as
The fact that is peculiar and exciting is that Ezekiel — despite his extraordinary talent for observation — finds nothing unusual about these
men except the "destroying weapon." Not even the man in their midst impresses him with anything other than that he was "clothed in linen." If we add
to this the fact that the commander, too, is always described simply as "man," it follows that all those related to the spaceship looked like

The way in which Ezekiel describes his various meetings with these 'men' (including several tasks he is supposed to accomplish) suggests that 'they'
were indeed on a mission
. The extent of this mission as well as the purpose(s) are unclear, and perhaps Ezekiel's experience was just one
episode of a more extensive plan reaching back to much earlier days in human history. But for this mission, those visitors clearly established a
certain infrastructure, eg. a temple, which I'd like to look into more in detail ...
The Temple & Precision of Design
So whoever came down to Earth back in the day, had some sort of compound or base, perhaps even several of them. The 'wheeled' chariots or the
likeness of the glory of the Lord
, as Ezekiel often put it, flew in and out, landed and took off from there, multiple times. Ezekiel has been
taken to this place in order to measure the exact dimensions and write them down:
In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a
city. 3 He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in
his hand. 4 The man said to me, “Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is
why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.”
The East Gate to the Outer Court
I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six long cubits,[a] each of which was a
cubit and a handbreadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high
In order to illustrate what Ezekiel saw and described, I created a rendition of the temple as well as a map with scales and further references. I
based these works on an open-source 3D model that I found in Trimble's 3D warehouse
(thanks to user 'Sketch'
for creating the
So why has Ezekiel been shown this area and why was he to report this to the people of Israel?
In Ezekiel 43:10-11
, we can read the following:
"Son of man, describe the temple to the people of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their sins. Let them consider its perfection, and if
they are ashamed of all they have done, make known to them the design of the temple — its arrangement, its exits and entrances — its whole design
and all its regulations and laws. Write these down before them so that they may be faithful to its design and follow all its regulations."
Let them consider its perfection
? It really seems as if this compound was built with advanced architectural features in mind. Personally, I
have no doubt that this structure was closely related to the maintainance of the vehicles and the operations they conducted throughout their mission
on Earth. I could well imagine that the design itself even incorporates numerical relations or other features that might substantiate this
interpretation ... however, IMO the layout as such, seems already sufficiently reminiscent of a modern compound serving technical & organizational
purposes instead of religous ones.
