don’t take lightly what you’re about to read. What has the world come
to today? How come so many people doubt the power of God? Why has
this nation strayed from the principle on which it was founded? I
tell you the truth because this nation has become what the prophet
Ezekiel saw Israel as in the 37th chapter of Ezekiel.
"The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the
Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it
was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and
behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were
very dry. And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?"
So I answered, "O Lord GOD, You know."
Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them,
`O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord GOD to
these bones: "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you
shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover
you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you
shall know that I am the LORD.
So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a
noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to
bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them,
and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Also
He said to me, "Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say
to the breath, `Thus says the Lord GOD: "Come from the four winds, O
breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live."’" So I
prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they
lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
Then He said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house
of Israel. They indeed say, `Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and
we ourselves are cut off!’ Therefore prophesy and say to them, `Thus
says the Lord GOD: "Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and
cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of
Israel. Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened
your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will
put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your
own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and
performed it," says the LORD.’" (Ezekiel 37:1-14)
America has become the Valley of Dry Bones. Like Israel, we have
strayed from God, but I tell you the truth, God wants to take us back.
His forgiveness flows. Notice as Ezekiel begins to prophesy, the dry
bones come to life. God revives the dry bones. He wants to revive
us. Very soon, I feel in my Spirit, the Lord will give us the
greatest revival of all time. It will be even greater than the day of
Pentecost. Many prophets have spoke of this revival.
The prophet, Isaiah, spoke of it in Isaiah 32:14-15, he tells us,
"Because the palaces will be forsaken, The bustling city will be
deserted. The forts and towers will become lairs forever, A joy of
wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks— Until the Spirit is poured upon us
from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the
fruitful field is counted as a forest."
The minor prophet Joel spoke of the revival, calling it the
Latter Rain in Joel 2:23, "Be glad then, you
