Ezekiel 37:1-5

1 (KJV) The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down

in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

[2] And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they

were very dry.

[3] And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

[4] Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

[5] Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

thou knowest.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

THE TEXT BEFORE US INFORMS US OF THE EXPERIENCE AND ENCOUNTER OF THE PROPHET EZEKIEL IN THE

CHEBBAR VALLEY CEMETERY

THE TEXT REVEALS THAT EZEKIEL WAS CARRIED BY GOD IN A VISION TO A VALLEY FULL OF BONES

IT WAS A PLACE THAT WAS DISTRESSING

A PLACE THAT WAS DISTURBING

AND IF THE BONES IN THAT VALLEY CAN LIVE

THAT MEANS THERE HOPE FOR THE BONES IN OUR VALLEY TODAY

AND YOU DO KNOW THAT THERE IS SOME BONES IN OUR VALLEYS

BUT LETS TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE TEXT

BECAUSE EMBEDDED IN THE IN THE FABRIC OF THE TEXT BRFORE US IS SOME SPRITUAL NUGGETS THAT I

WOULD LIKE TO LIFT UP

Ezekiel 37:1- The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of

the valley which was full of bones,

THE RECORD INFORMS US THAT EZEKIEL MADE HIS ARRIVAL IN THE VALLEY WITH THE HELP OF GOD

SO HE WAS THERE UNDER THE DIVINE ORDER OF GOD

AND WHEN HE ARRIVED HE DISCOVERED THAT DEATH HAD ALREADY BEEN IN THE VALLEY

AND THE ONLY THING LEFT WAS BONES THAT WAS VERY DRY

BUT AS EZEKIEL WALKS IN THE VALLEY

EVERYWHERE HE LOOK WAS BONES

BONES IN FRONT OF HIM

BONES IN BACK OF HIM

BONES ON THE LEFT BONES ON THE RIGHT

A VALLEY FULL OF DRY BONES

NOW I`VE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT EZEKIEL WAS IN THE VALLEY BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE GOD

WANTED HIM TO BE

BUT I NEED TO PAUSE AND ASK EACH OF YOU

ARE WE WHERE GOD WANT US TO BE IN OUR SPRITUAL WALK WITH THE LORD

AND JUST LIKE GOD HAD A PLAN AND AGENDA FOR EZEKIEL

HE ALSO HAS A PLAN AND A AGENDA FOR YOU AND ME

AND THERE`S NOTHING LIKE BEING IN THE WILL OF GOD

BECAUSE IN THE WILL OF GOD THERE IS JOY

JOY THAT THE WORLD CAN`T GIVE US

AND JOY THAT THE WORLD CAN`T TAKE AWAY

AND NOT ONLY IS THERE JOY BUT THERE IS ALSO PEACE IN THE WILL OF GOD

PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING

BUT THE 2 ND THING IN THE TEXT I NOTICE IS

THAT THESE BONES WE`RE NOT JUST DRY BONES BUT THEY WHERE NOT TOGETHER

EZEKIEL DID NOT DISCOVER SKELTONS IN THE VALLEY

IF HE HAD FOUND SKELTONS

THAT WOULD HAVE INDICTATED THAT THE BONES WE`RE TOGETHER

BUT THE BONES WHERE DISJOINTED NO LONGER CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER

AND THAT TELLS ME THAT THERE WAS NO UNITY OR TOGETHERNESS IN THE VALLEY

BUT EVERY BONE WAS ITSELF AND EXTREMELY DRY

AND IN THIS VALLEY WE`RE FOOT BONES TO DRY TO PAT THERE FEET
