In every Book of the Bible we find great encouragement, because the Bible is like a many faceted diamond. Each of us could read a book from the Bible and the encouragement, we will obtain from it, maybe remarkable individualized to our own circumstances. God loves us individually and as much as, we can obtain a corporate understanding from reading it, Our Lord and Our Friend can speak to us personally in our daily devotional reading of His Word.
That is why, we have started a segment called ‘Excitement from the various books of The Bible’. This article is from the Book of Ezekiel, was taken from an article written by OFJ’s wife Anne, which we have used before. Anne has been going through treatment for cancer, for over foreteen months now, and her faith in Her God has not wavered. Enjoy Anne’s article we have retitled ‘Excitement from Ezekiel’. Anne has not yet been given, the all clear, but the signs are very positive, for somebody who was diagnosed, with pancreatic and liver cancer. Anne would also enjoy the knowledge of others praying with her, as she stand on the promises of her Lord, her Savior and her Friend. Once again enjoy the facet of understanding this strong lady of Faith, gleaned from Ezekiel.
In this vision Ezekiel sees a great valley filled with dry bones, said to be the whole house of Israel.
The main lesson of this vision is the restoration of God’s people.
He takes them from among the heavens and gathers them out of all countries
as bones without flesh.
They were, historically a scattered people. this isn’t just a picture or a metaphor. It does however show the power of God to raise those who have not only been
scattered, but also are dead in sins.
This new birth was explained to Nicodemus, and God promises it here to Israel for the first of many times.
They are to be brought forth, filled with God’s Spirit and brought to their land.
When you are in the Spirit you become ALIVE in the Spirit. God’s hand was upon Ezekiel. Thus he was alive in the Spirit.
We have to become alive in the Holy Spirit. We are to be born again we have to start to proclaim the Lord. Jesus will come back looking for a people walking in the Spirit.
We need him to Breathe new life, a fresh anointing allow to breathe over us afresh with conviction, power, and anointing. When there is real life something takes place.
We need God so much. We must be a people who will pray. God is
saying come, don’t hold back. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
Romans 10 verse 17 God wants us to open our mouths, God wants to invade us with His presence.
Come alive in the spirit, come alive to the things of God. The yoke of The Holy Spirit will break the yoke of bondage!
Be Blessed Anne
