SON OF MAN, CAN THESE BONES LIVE ?

THE POWER OF GOD TO SAVE AND RESTORE YOUR LIFE.

Ezekiel 37:1-14 NKJV
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. [2] 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. [3] And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” [4] Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! [5] Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. [6] 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.”‘” [7] 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. [8] 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. [9] 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.” [10] So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. [11] 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!’ [12] 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. [13] 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. [14] 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.'”

Although these verses are referring to the “whole house of Israel,” it’s obvious to see the evangelistic connection to the lost and unsaved, they are like dry bones. The lost people of this world, those not born again and saved, sit in the valley of the shadow of death, condemned already. Those who are lost and unsaved are dry bones, dead in their trespasses and sins.

John 3:16-19 NKJV
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. [17] For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. [18] “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [19] And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Ephesians 2:1 NKJV
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,
The lost have no life, those lost have no hope without Christ, unless the Spirit of God, breathes into them the breath of life through the power of The Gospel.

You must be born again or you cannot see The Kingdom of God.

1 John 4:14-15 NKJV
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. [15] Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

Ephesians 2:13, 18 NKJV
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. [18] For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
