    Can these bones live? Any hope? Text Ezekiel Time 30/09/07 Place Childs Hill Baptist Church The first part of Ezekiel 37 is about the valley of dry bones and it is the most famous part in the whole book. The means used for the bringing of these dispersed bones together and these dead and dry bones to life. It must be done by prophecy. Ezekiel is ordered to prophesy upon these bones (v. 4and again v. 9), to prophesy to the wind. So he prophesied as he was commanded, v. 7, v. [1.].

    Ezekiel Context. 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, 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.   In God asks Ezekiel a question. “Can these bones live?” Why did God ask such a question? This was not a question seeking information. God wanted Ezekiel to put his faith to work and to see the possibilities before him. God knows that dry bones can live again, but He wants Ezekiel to believe that. All of God’s people had lost that : Joe Alain.

      But God is calling us to exercise faith. He’s calling you to exercise faith—faith over that valley of dry bones where you live or where you work or where you minister, maybe within your own home—to believe that by God’s power these dry bones can live again. We see in this word to these dry bones that it’s not Ezekiel’s work. And He said to me, "Prophesy concerning these bones and tell them: 'Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Ezekiel This is what the Lord GOD says to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you will live. Ezekiel As I looked on, tendons appeared on them, flesh grew, and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them.
