SPEAKING LIFE TO DEAD SITUATIONS

March 23, 2019

When faced with difficult or unpleasant situations, people will cry, pray, complain, share their situations with others, or become depressed and overwhelmed. Therefore, on today, knowing our words have power I would like to use Ezekiel 37:1-10 as the scriptural reference for this blog about speaking life to dead, difficult or unpleasant situations. Also, I will be extracting from this scripture keys to follow when you like Israel, who in this text was feeling hopeless and discouraged.

The main character in this scripture is Ezekiel, the son of Buzi who was a priest but is known to us as a major prophet who lived during the Babylonian exile and was commissioned by God to be a watchman to his peers who were a rebellious people.

In a vision, Ezekiel is transported to a valley filled with disjointed human bones that appeared dry, brittle and were scattered on the ground throughout the valley. Ezekiel was asked whether he thought the bones could live, to which he replied, “O Lord GOD, thou knowest.” He was then told to prophesy to the bones to hear the word of the LORD which said “Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” Accordingly, Ezekiel did as he was instructed, and there was a noise and shaking as the bones came together and formed skeletons. Then sinews, flesh and the skin covered the bones, but they remained lifeless without breath in them until Ezekiel prophesy to the four wind for breath to come and breathe in the slain bodies that they may live. Again, Ezekiel followed the instructions, and the breath came into the slain bodies; they stood up and lived.

According to the text, in the vision, Ezekiel was taken to a place where a calamitous battle had occurred, and the bodies of the dead soldiers were not buried. This may have occurred because there were no survivors to do the burial, the victors may not have thought their enemy was worth burying, or they may have left the bodies as an example to others. The vultures and other scavenging animals had devoured their flesh, and over time, the bodies that were exposed to the sun and wind became dry, brittle, and disconnected.

God had warned Israel their rebellion would lead to the scene that Ezekiel was experiencing (Deuteronomy 28:25-26; Jeremiah 34:20). However, in his priestly role Ezekiel was forbidden to be defiled by going around dead bodies except for his near kinsman, so, in this vision, he was taken out of his customary element (Leviticus 21:1-3). This lets us know that there are some places God will carry you because on your own you would not go.

Everywhere Ezekiel turned all he saw was the ravages of destruction, and he was made to look at the situation not with his natural eyes but with faith in the Word of God. He was instructed to prophesy to what he saw. Understanding that prophesy is the mind of God revealed, Ezekiel was speaking God’s mind.

As he spoke, there were noise and movement, the bones did not come together quietly, and Ezekiel did not become unnerved by what he was seeing. That which was needed to give structure, strength, and covering materialized, but there still was no life.

Ezekiel’s last act was to speak the mind of God in the atmosphere and call the four winds that controlled and did different acts in the atmosphere to work in concert with each other. The conclusion of this final action produced an exceeding great army of living men.

This is what I learned from this text:
1. To know that even when I am placed in difficult situations, God is with me and gives me the ability to speak change.
2. When I speak, change comes progressively. Change may involve noise and things being moved around.
3. I am to call forth structure, strength, and covering.
4. Speak into my atmosphere for everything to work together to produce life.

Be blessed and I pray this blog has provided you within insight, answers, and instructions
