I would say that the hand of the LORD being on Ezekiel would mean that he was given knowledge, powers, or a message to proclaim that he did not acquire or possess (and perhaps could not acquire or possess) through his own effort or by any natural means; or that he had an experience or vision that could only have been brought about by God's direct action, involvement, or revelation, rather than through any human actions (either Ezekiel's own or those of others).
