Ezekiel saw dry, withering bones in a valley.  The bones were as far away from life as anything can get. Lifeless.  Dried up.  Turning to dust.
God brought them back– bone by bone, muscle by muscle, covering them in rejuvenated skin.
God breathed life into them and they were alive.  Alive. Breath
God said, “This is what I’m going to for my people.  I’m going to bring them back to life.”
  • Was it a vision?  Yes.
  • Did God bring the Israelites back to life in a massive horror-movie spectacle?  No.
  • Does this Bible reading communicate that there are no limits to when, where, or how God brings new life?  Yes.
God doesn’t do left behind.  God does bring you back.
