God’s Bringing it All Together
There are so many moments of connection in this text
God had to raise up an individual that had the bravery to bring change to a people that were dead do to disobedience.
Carried out in the spirit
Vs. 1 Grabbed (arrested) only to be brought out of a place of comfort to be put into a place of uncomforting surroundings.
God’s Spirit will take you to dead places w/ dead people to manifest the spirit in you that gives you vision to see the ultimate condition of a disobedient family.
Vs. 2You’re not here for punishment - You’re here for assignment
Vs. 3-4 The watchman is the same one that has to: 1) Speak 2) Answer 3) Obey
Ezekiel 3:17 says: son of man I have made you a watchman for the family of Israel -What I speak you speak to cause them to live again.
You’re cursing your assignment because you want a return from something that does not have the value, help, (HOLY SPIRIT - God’s Spirit - is Ruach meaning "breath," or "wind" within them to allow them to talk back. Prophesy!!!
Vs. 5 Women God’s going to give you breath because you have been made from bone
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh.
Vs. 6 God says he will cause an abnormal transformation before you have life
Will Cause Your:
1) Bone to become a Skeleton which is the framework that houses your vision
2) Sinew & Muscle to become the support system that brings the skeleton together
3) Skin – Covering to give the security, Identity and affirmation that this structure has to have, to qualify as a source to retain the future life (Breath). You have to inhale before you exhale.
Vs. 7 Prophesied as commanded and began talking to the situation not focusing on the condition there was noise, rattling = Which suggests that there was movement where there was no life, indicating that there was progress in my prophecy.
Vs. 8 There was no breath (Life), Therefore it was still dead in a dead place
The framework was there but the necessity of its withholding had to have no superficial flaws
1) Bones - Skeleton couldn’t have cracks in them
2) Sinew & Muscle - Support System could not have DIVISION amongst them.
3) Skin – Covering – couldn’t be with flaws
Vs. 9 For me to prophesy it must be a message from God the divine will for mankind on earth and in heaven, there must be alignment.
Speak to Breath (Life) tell the breath (Life) thus says the lord come from the four winds
Give life to the dead.
