Our Valley of Dry Bones

Ezekiel 37:7-9

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

I have always enjoyed this passage. I have heard it preached and used as a call for revivals. I was studying and praying today and it hit me the church has become the valley of dry bones. Now don’t jump and say, “my church has the spirit in it,” until you read the rest. We do have churches throughout the world that are thriving and serving God, but the church as a whole is falling. Let me explain there are 206 bones in the human body. If you took 206 pastors and had them discuss what they each believe not any two of them would fully agree on the entire Bible. We have been divided to the point that we will end up arguing about a single sentence out of the bible. I have heard stories from my father. In his youth churches came together for these massive revivals. They didn’t care if you were Baptist, Pentecostal, Churches of God, or anything else. They came together to serve God. We lost our unity and have been divided. So, can our valley of dry bones live again? Yes, it can. We can agree on something. The main thing that matters. Christ said you must be born again. If we can come together and worship on this one thing, then God can lead us together. So, let us come back together and we will see a revival like what we have only heard of.
