Bishop Edir Macedo Explains the Faith That Ezekiel Had
It is written: “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).
Ezekiel was a man filled with the Holy Spirit and God Himself took him from where he was. Placed him in a valley of dry bones, where he continued to serve God.
Those dry bones would turn, through the Word of God, into a great army of people of the Holy Spirit. God spoke to His prophet: “…Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! (Ezekiel 37.4).
This means that God takes us to a place of difficulty to transform the situation and that people who are living on the edge of hell can be resurrected and receive the Spirit to be used by Him. This is what God did with His Son, Jesus. He took Him off His throne and placed Him in the midst of sinners. In the valley of dry bones, where He taught, preached, resurrected, and died to save us.
God takes us to a place of difficulty to transform the situation, and the people who are living on the edge of hell can be resurrected and receive the Spirit to be used by Him.
Maybe you too are dry bones, but God is able to make you a person with a life worthy of His glory.
God gives you the right to live so that you can be useful in His hands. This is the Father’s desire. Even dry bones have heard the Voice of God, why not do the same? If you want to get out of this situation, listen and practice the Word of God.
