God communicates to His people in unique ways about judgment and hope in the Book of Ezekiel. Parables, allegories, and sign acts are used.
Through Ezekiel, we learn that spiritual things are just as important as the physical, and even more important regarding the physical's temporary circumstances. We also get a glimpse of God's glory manifested with His presence when riding a heavenly chariot.
God's presence being revealed to Ezekiel in Babylon also demonstrates that holiness has nothing to do with geographical location, but rather the condition of people's hearts. God is moved by the faithfulness of men like Ezekiel, who became His priest not because of status but because of his faith in God in a dark land, no matter the circumstances. His example is a model for believers everywhere.
