The Valley Of Restoration. Ezekiel 37:1-14


Ezek37A

Can these bones live? Can we actually come back alive from our past and dead self? Can we be totally free from the power of sin? Can the resurrecting power in the Blood of Jesus resurrect us from the grip and power of the grave? Can our dead glory come back alive? Can be breakthrough unto God’s perfect and divine plans for our lives? Can every dry bone in our lives rise again? Only God Knows!

The book of Ezekiel from chapter 36:24-38 was talking about the restoration of the nation Israel. In chapter 37, God gives a vision and symbol of the methods of its accomplishments. Verse 11 of Ezekiel 37 gives us the clue.

  • The bones, which are the whole house of Israel, who shall be living and the graves, are the nations where they dwell.

The order of the procedure is

  • Bringing the people out. (Vs 12)
  • Bringing them in. (vs 12)
  • Their conversion. (Vs 13)
  • The filling with the spirit. (Vs 14)

Resurrection is very important in our new walk with Christ. It means we are dead to sin; we’ve been crucified with Christ. It means we are no more under the law of sin but of Grace. The law is no more our schoolmaster, our flesh is dead to sin and our inner man has risen with Christ. This entails we are a New Creature.

Note: Romans 6:1-2a “ we cannot continue to live in sin, thinking grace may abound. We should not use the liberty we have as an occasion to glorify and satisfy the flesh.

The Valley of Resurrection is a place where:

  • The resurrection of the soul occurs from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, to a holy, heavenly, spiritual and divine life by the power of divine grace going down with the word of Christ. John 5:24-25.

God took prophet Ezekiel to a valley full of dead dry bones and asked him, can these Bones Live? The prophet answered only for answering sake, so it wouldn’t be as if he lacked faith! “Oh Lord Thou Knowest”

“In life there comes a time when the situations and difficulties we are facing challenges our faith and hope in God. Then we are asked simple questions, but the answer becomes very difficult. Not because we don’t believe in God or we have lost faith. It’s simply because the situation seems impossible. But thank God we have a God that specializes in making the impossible to become possible.”

 Let’s observe the particulars of this Vision.

  • The Hand of the Lord was upon the Prophet and He carried him to a valley full of dry bones, probably the one of Ezekiel 3:22.

When God asked him if the bones could live vs 3? Is it likely? Can thou devise how it should be done? NO said the prophet, “ I know not how it should be done, but thou knowest Lord.” He didn’t say they couldn’t live, lest it would sound a bit insulting and limiting the power of the Almighty.

Faith and hope are two key ingredients in living a life pleasing to God. We have to trust God no matter how hard and difficult the situation might seem.

  • The spoken command word to bring these dry bones back to life. Vs 4-6.

God asked him to prophesy, pray, speak, and issue a command in the name of the Lord. This means using the power of God to speak life.

“ Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

God is known to speak things to be. Ezekiel prophesying to dry disperses and scattered bones, commanding them to live must have been done only by prophecy. He had to issue a command (preach), he did so and the dead bones lived by a power that went along with the word of God, which he preached.

He must pray, he did so and the dead bones were made to live in answer to the prayer; for a spirit of life entered into them.

Back to us

There are many dead situations in our lives, so many valleys of dry bones. One thing certain and sure, the word of God can bring them back to life.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 Jeremiah 23:29

Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Speak the word of God to every area that needs resurrection in your life. God words are powerful; they have the power to bring the invisible things to visible. His words make the impossible to become possible.

Speak the power of resurrection to every dead area in your life, from sin to lust, to immoralities. It doesn’t matter how bad the situation might seem, the power of resurrection can bring you back on track. God can restore you, don’t give up on yourself. There is hope for a better tomorrow. The grace to needed to bounce back from every unpleasant situation must and only be obtained and sought by prayer.

God grace can save us without our preaching, but our preaching cannot save us without God’s grace. You need His grace to resurrect.

We must faithfully and diligently use the means of grace given to us by faith to speak life into every area of our lives. We have to discharge our trust, we must speak life as we are commanded only in the name of Jesus according to Philippians 2:5-11. Only that name has the key to unlock every dead potential in us. The power in the of Jesus makes us dead to sin, that we may have life and live it abundantly.

Speak life and see life in every situation around and within your life.

God Bless.

Your Heart & Your Thoughts Determines The Life You Live. Proverbs 4:20-27.


Image

The Bible has warned us not to do evil, in this same verse teaches us how to do well. It is not sufficient only to avoid the occasion of sinning but we should study the methods of avoiding them.

1. We must have a continual regard to the word of God and endeavor that it may be always ready to us.
Wisdom & understanding must be our principle guide & teacher. Proverbs 4:7.
We must receive them readily: ” incline thy ear to them, humbly bow to them; diligently listen to them.”
The attentive hearing of the word of God is a good sign of a work of grace begun in the heart and a good means of carrying it on.
We must retain them carefully and lay them before us as ” Our Rule.”
” Let them not depart from thy eyes; view them, review them and in everything aim to conform to them.” We must lodge them within us as a commanding principle, the influences of which are diffused throughout the whole man: ” keep them in the midst of thy heart, as things dear to thee, and which thou art afraid of losing.”
Let the word of God be written in the heart, and that which is written there will remain.
– The reason why we must thus make much of the words of wisdom is because they will both food and physic to us, like the tree of life, Rev. 22:2; Eze 47:12. Those that seek and find them, find and keep them, shall find in them.

2. We must keep a watchful eye and a strict hand upon all the motions of our inward man Proverbs 4:23 is a great duty required by wisdom, and in order to our getting and preserving wisdom: keep thy heart with all diligence. God, who gave us these souls, gave us a strict charge with them: Man, Woman, keep thy heart; take heed to thy spirit. Deu 4:9. We must maintain a holy jealousy of ourselves, and set a strict guard, accordingly, upon all avenues of the soul; keep our heart from doing hurt and getting hurt, from being defiled by sin and disturbed by trouble; keep them as our jewel, as our vineyard; keep a conscience void of offense; keep our bad thoughts; keep up good thoughts: keep the affections upon right objects and things.
There are many ways of keeping things- by care, by strength, by calling in help, and we must use them all in keeping our hearts.
– We must also keep our eyes (Job 31:1a); Our tongues (Psalm 34:13); keep our feet (Eccl 5:1); but above all,” Our Hearts.” A good reason is that ” Out of it are the Issues of Life.” Out of a heart well kept will flow living issues, good product to the glory of God.

3. We must set a watch before the door of our lips, that we offend not with our tongue Pro 4:24: ” Put away from Thee froward mouth and perverse lips

4. We must make a covenant with our eyes: ” Let them look right on and straight before thee, Proverbs 4:25. Let the eye be fixed and not wandering; let it not robe after everything that presents itself, for then it will be diverted from good and ensnared in evil. Turn it from beholding vanity; let thy eye be single and not divided; let thy intention be sincere and uniform.”
We must keep our eye upon our Master, keep our eye upon our rule, and conform to that; We must keep our eye upon our mark, ” the price of the calling ” Phil 2:14.

5. We must act considerately in all we do Proverbs 4:26: ponder the path of thy feet, weigh it; ” put the word of God in on scale, and what thou has done, or art about to do, in order, see how thy agree; be nice and critical in examining whether thy way be good before The Lord and whether it will end well.”
We must consider our past ways and examine what we have done, and our present ways, what we are doing, and see that we walk circumspectly. ( with cautions ).
We must act with steadiness, cautions, and consistency: ” Let all thy ways be established Proverbs 4:26 and be not unstable in them, as the double-minded man is. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy feet from Evil.

Conclusion:
Many people dream of sin, imagine sin, and—if granted the opportunity—would indulge in sin. All they lack is the occasion to sin. So, in the sight of God, they are sinners as great as though they actually had committed immorality. All transgressions begin with sinful thinking.

You who have come to Christ for a pure heart, guard against the pictures of lewdness and sensuality which Satan flashes upon the screen of your imagination, select with care the books you read, choose discerningly the kind of entertainment you attend, the kind of associates with whom you mingle, and the kind of environment in which you place yourself. You should no more allow sinful imaginations to accumulate in your mind and soul than you would let garbage collect in your living room.
