1. The Ordinances of Heaven: Day by day, the sun rose in the east, “as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber” (Ps 19:5), and pursued unswervingly his appointed path across the sky, to his going down. Night by night, the stars, the “host of heaven,” moved in their “highways” or “courses” (
), and the words of Joel (2:7) respecting the Assyrian army might be applied to them. “They march every one on his ways, and they break not their ranks. Neither doth one thrust another; they march every one in his path.” Some wheeled in northern circuits that were wholly seen; some swept in long courses from their rising in the East to their setting in the West; some scarcely lifted themselves above the southern horizon. Little wonder that this celestial army on the march, “the host of heaven,” suggested to the Hebrews a comparison with the “angels,” the unseen messengers of God who in their “thousands of thousands ministered unto him” (Dan 7:10).

EZEKIEL{1:8} And [they had] the hands of a man under their wings on their foursides; and they four had their faces and their wings. {1:9}
Their wings [were] joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
