Text: Ezekiel 37:1-14; Matthew 28:1-8

  1. THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES: THE PLACE OF HOPE Ezekiel 37
    • Ten times God promises that the dry bones of this valley are not their final reality.
    • The reviving of the dry bones signified God’s plan for restoration.
    • The vision shows that Israel’s new life and not the circumstances of the people.
    • Putting “breath” by God’s Spirit into the bones showed that God would restore them both physically and spiritually.
