"Can these bones live?"
Updated: Oct 12, 2022
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My ways, and you will keep My judgments and you will do them. You shall be mine, and I will be your God. ~ Ezekiel 36: 26-28.
And He said to me: "Son of man can these bones live?"
And again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, 'O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put breath in you, and you will live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.
So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone... But there was no breath in him.
So, He said to me, "Prophecy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on this man, that he may live.'"
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into him, and he lived. ~ Ezekiel 37:3-10 (adapted)
