God called Ezekiel to speak in a deeply visionary and symbolic way. Ezekiel’s call is described in the first three chapters of the Book of Ezekiel in the Bible. His call to be a prophet occurred in a series of dramatic visions that began with a heavenly chariot coming from the north, an intricate vision full of creatures with multiple faces, wheels within wheels covered with eyes, and the overwhelming presence of the glory of God.

The first vision culminates with Ezekiel seeing an appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, and he fell on his face in awe. God then speaks to Ezekiel and tells him that He is sending him to the Israelites, who are described as rebellious and obstinate. God commissions Ezekiel to deliver His messages, regardless of whether they listen or fail to listen.

Ezekiel’s call also involved symbolic acts. For example, God instructs him to eat a scroll that contains lamentations, mourning, and woe. When Ezekiel eats the scroll, it tastes as sweet as honey in his mouth. This act symbolizes Ezekiel’s acceptance of God’s word and his readiness to proclaim it to the people.

God tells Ezekiel that he is to be a “watchman” for the house of Israel, meaning that he is responsible for warning the Israelites of the divine judgment that is to come if they do not turn from their wicked ways. Ezekiel’s role as a prophet was to be a bold and direct communicator of God’s messages, despite the hardships he would face. His calling was marked by a profound experience of God’s majesty and a challenging mission to speak to a nation that might not be willing to listen.
