Valley of Dry Bones. . .Page 3

      However Jewish history is definitely moving toward the analogy Ezekiel utilized in verse 14, a verse describing the days after the Lord has brought them back from the valley of dry bones.

      And I shall put My spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and Performed it.

      Make no mistake about this point; Israel would not be back in its rightful domicile today, if it were not God's will and God’s design!

      No other people in the world can boast of such high authority for the title to their earthly land deed. It is rooted in the Word of God, which all Christian nations are to respect. Alas, the United States seems to no more respect Israel's right to their land, reflecting the fact we are not any longer a Christian nation.

      There are hundreds of scriptural references to show evidence that we have reached that period in the long roll call of human history, when the ever living God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph is lifting up an “ensign” to signal to all nations everywhere, that He is going to be breathing the breath of life into those old bones of Israel that have come back together, and has received its skin for covering.

      Isaiah 49:8 Thus saith the Lord, in an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate land.

      The acceptable time has arrived folks; the body of Israel has returned home to complete its task and become that which its destiny demands for it to be, a Holy people, a people of God; and to establish on earth the Kingdom of the Messiah, Jesus Christ!

      Moreover, as Ezekiel is informed in verses 16-22; God says he will reunite all the disbanded children of Israel and Judah, as one might splice a stick back together. The lord shall make of them one nation! The sealed of the 12 tribes mentioned in Revelation chapter 7 attest to God's ability to perform such a seemingly impossible task.

      The vision of the valley of dry bones inevitably points, first of all to the physical, and then finally to the spiritual rebirth of Israel. The Jew has only been bodily present in the lands of his dispersion, and all the centuries he has existed beyond the confines of the promised land, he has endure non-spirit-filled life; so in essence; a return to the ancient natural soil was a must for real life to begin to shoot forth in the Fig Tree of Israel.

      David Ben Gurion, the first Prime Minister of the new state of Israel said in 1948: "The ingathering of the exiles, that is the return of the Jewish people to its land, is the beginning of the realization of the old Messianic vision."

      Israel's Independence Day prayer reads like this: "May it be Thy will, O Jehovah our God, and the God of our fathers, that as we have been granted the dawn of redemption, so may we be granted to hear the trumpet of the Messiah."

      Israel's historical journey among the nations of this world has seen their bones be scattered out upon the valleys of all those Gentile nations. Yet, God has utilized the testimony of Israel to be a light to the Gentile every where, and he has also set up a standard whereby all those nations shall know he is indeed God.

      Jeremiah 31:10 Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

      Israel, has walked down through the Valley of the shadow of Death and came out, and it will still yet endure its harshest valley; ( time of Jacob’s trouble ) but the Lord is still their shepherd.

      The shepherd will one day restore Israel's soul, and He will lead them in the paths of righteousness, for His own name's sake!

      Israel will mourn for the Lord Jesus on the day when they shall See him coming in clouds of glory to rescue them from the encircling armies of the Antichrist.

      Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me ( Jesus ) whom they pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

      Israel will finally enjoy the mountaintop experience, and see no more valleys!
