Shall these dry bones live?
The answer is yes.
With Christ these dry bones shall live, but without Christ they shall not.
Without God we are nothing but dry bones.
Shall these dry bones live without God? No
They are just that, dry.
If God’s Hand is not upon our lives, then we are nothing but dry bones.
That’s deep isn’t it.
Imagine believing that you’re alive but really you’re dead.
A life without Christ is meaningless.
We live to the fullest when we have the spirit of God.
I’ll give you an example of a man whose bones were not dry but very much still full of life, and that’s Joseph.
And Joseph said to his brethren, “I am dying; but God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” Genesis 50:24
Then Joseph took an oath from the children of Israel, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.” Genesis 50:25
Joseph lived a prosperous life, he lived a prosperous life because he lived to please God.
A slave he was but God never kept him there he took him out of bondage!
A prisoner he was but God never kept him there he took him out of prison!
A free man Joseph was, but the enemy tried to hold his bones captive in Egypt, but even in Egypt his dry bones were not without purpose.
His dry bones they had meaning, his bones were valued in the sight of God.
God declared that the dry bones of Joseph shall not remain in Egypt, and indeed His Word came to pass.
God is a faithful God, and even in the grave God did not keep Joseph in bondage, God released the bones of Joseph into his promised land.
And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had placed the children of Israel under solemn oath, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here with you.” Exodus 13:19
Men and women of faith their bones do not remain in the grave.
The bones of God’s children shall remain within the promise.
His promise is that we may have life in abundance.
Jesus came from heaven to earth to destroy death, so that we will receive eternal life.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Death could not hold King Jesus down!
He died, and He rose again!
Death could not hold Him captive!
Even in the grave Jesus is Lord!
Which means there is a hope, a life lived in Christ Jesus is a life with PURPOSE.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. John 19:33
But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. John 19:34
His Blood speaks better things, His Blood speaks life.
And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. John 19:35
For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, “Not one of His bones shall be broken.”
The bones of Jesus could not be broken!
His bones still breathed life!
He is The Bread of Heaven, The Bread of Life!
God is not dead!
This Word has been on my heart since Good Friday.
Shall these dry bones live?
It’s so deep you know.
Though we are buried we shall not perish, if we have lived a life that pleases God.
Yes Jesus died, and he lay in the grave but on the third day he arose.
His bones did not decay, His bones still breathed life.
Whatever you are going through believe me you shall not remain there, if Jesus arose on the third day then you are also able to arise from any situation.
satan could not keep the bones of Joseph in Egypt, and neither is he able to keep you where God says he will take you out from.
He is your deliverer.
satan could not crush the bones of Jesus, in the same way he cannot crush you.
satan cannot discourage you, he cannot destroy you!
satan cannot crush your spirit!
You shall live and not die!
And true life is when your spirit lives!
Because He lives, because King Jesus lives, you also shall live and not die!
You shall live, and live to declare The Word of The Lord.
That dry area in your life shall no longer remain dry.
When they pierced the side of Jesus, scripture says Jesus The Living Word was emptied of Blood and of Water, and that which He was emptied of was shed for you and I.
He has given us living waters and He has given us His Blood, therefore there is no place for dryness, barrenness in our lives!
He came so that we might have life, and life in abundance.
Jesus conquered the grave!
Jesus won the victory!
Death could not hold You down!
You are the risen King!
There is no place for death in your life.
He died and He arose, therefore every dead area or thing in your life shall arise!
God is redirecting you from that dead end.
Because He lives.
I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives.
All fear is gone.
And now I know, yes I know!
He holds my future, and life is worth a living just, because He lives.
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. Ezekiel 37:1
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. Ezekiel 37:2
And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” Ezekiel 37:3
Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Ezekiel 37:4
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. Ezekiel 37:5
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.” ’ ” Ezekiel 37:6
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. Ezekiel 37:7
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. Ezekiel 37:8
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.” ’ ” Ezekiel 37:9
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. Ezekiel 37:10
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!’ Ezekiel 37:11
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. Ezekiel 37:12
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. Ezekiel 37:13
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.’ ”
We are the perfect image of God.
He has breathed into us and given us the gift of life.
It is very important that we live to please God else the life that we live on earth is in vain.
Lets live to please God let’s continue to walk in faith so that, like Joseph even in the grave our bones still breathe life.
Even as our spirit lives on in eternity.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis 2:7
The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4
He is able more than able, to do much than I could ever dream.
He is able, more than able.
To make me what He wants me to be.❤️🙏
Without Jesus Christ there is NO life.
He touched me, Oh He touched me,
And oh the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened and now I know,
He touched me and made me whole❤️🙌
God bless you, and Happy Easter.
He is Risen.
