Rise – Ezekiel 37:1-14


Download (right click and choose save as)

In this story GOD had something profound to show to Ezekiel, one of His prophets.  What he saw was appalling and sad.  What GOD asked him to do was unusual.  What happened was downright remarkable!  At the end of the story GOD reveals to Ezekiel that what he saw represented GOD’s people who were currently living, yet not ALIVE.  I believe there are countless masses of people today, GOD’s people, who are in waste places, who feel hopeless, who think they are finished or disqualified.  But GOD wants to speak something to them and raise them up!
