Ezekiel's Vision

Above:  Part of the Original Text

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ezek. 37, 1-10

1.  Vast multitude.  Numbers make their appeal ton the soul.  “He was moved with compassion.”

2.  Condition-dead, dry bones, helpless, no life, no response to life about them.  Pitiable indeed is the soul in sin.

3.  God’s call to his servant to prophesy, to declare God’s message.  His word is the one only adequate call–“is spirit and life.”  O that men would hear and head this call of the Lord (verse 4).  But “how can they hear without a preacher?”

4.  The call to the life-giving Spirit (vs. 9-10).  Only he can quicken these slain and cause them to stand upon their feet.  No device of man can do it.  He is the original source of all life.  “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit.”

5.  He is our indispensable need.  “Tarry ye until ye be endued with power from on high!”

O blow upon these slain, thou mighty Spirit, that they may live!
