And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Ezekiel Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD Ezekiel Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: Ezekiel 37:3-5
How many of our Churches have become a land of “Dry Bones”? There is no spiritual life in sight, don’t be discouraged for God is the giver of life.
Just as God formed Adam from the dust and breathed life into him, he can do the same to the “Dry Bones” of your congregation. But God needs you to speak for him.
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon…
And in the wilderness. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.” Deuteronomy 1:31
During the Israelites 40-year journey to the Promise Land, they endured some hard times. There was a lot of uncertainty about food, shelter, ect but God continually provided all their needs. Even in the barren wilderness, he provided them daily Manna and streams of running water in the desert. God never left them or forsake them just as a Father cares for his son
What about your life journey? Are you traveling through the wilderness of the unknown? Not sure what tomorrow will bring? Have faith that God will never leave you and will provide all your needs. If you follow Gods plan, you will be on the journey for your “Promise Land”. But the question is, will you stay on the path of righteousness? Or like many will you waver and go astray?
God cares for you as a Father, he will carry you when you become weary. Don’t miss out on your “Promise Land” , keep pressing on to the prize, in Jesus Name Amen
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
Can we truly live with no hope? If you don’t have hope in Jesus, where does your hope come from? Hope is the anchor for the soul (Hebrews 6:19) When things start looking dark we can renew our strength in the hope and promises of Jesus Christ, who has already overcome the world (John 16:33)
Come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28) These are the word of Jesus Christ, who is our Sabbath, he gives us peace and rest during the storms of life. Are you weary and burdened? Come to Jesus and let him refresh your soul with his grace, mercy and truth
Not only will you be renewed but you will soar on wings like eagles, Why? Because nothing can separate us from the love of God ( Romans 8:38) On the cross Jesus has defeated every force of evil, IT IS FINISHED Because of this victory in Christ, we will walk and not be faint! We are victorious in Jesus Name Amen
Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? Proverbs 6:28
Can someone sin without consequences? Absolutely not, and this what the Proverb is trying to tell us. When you think about any sin, there is a consequence. Drugs or alcohol lead to intoxication, which ruins your health, could lead to death. Sexual immorality leads to STD’s and/or the breaking up of families. Ect. Ect. The reason God hates sin so much is it goes against his plan for Creation, which was eternal life .
We know the wages of our sins is death (Romans 6:23) You can’t walk through the fire without getting burned. But there is a solution to our sin and its Jesus Christ. He has paid the ransom for our sins so we can live again (1 Timothy 2:6)
However, if you continue your sinful life it will lead to death and destruction. Set your mind on things above and not on Earthly things (Colossians 3:2) Turn away from evil, truly repent, meaning change your sinful lifestyle. Strive to live a holy life. Our bodies are the temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16) we need to treat them this way
If you continue to live a sinful lifestyle, when the consequences of those sins strike your life, you have no one to blame but yourself. You can’t walk through the fire without being burned, but you can walk with Christ and live forever in Jesus Name Amen
Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. Luke 22:35
What do you lack today? Do you always feel you need something more? Just as Jesus sent out his disciples into the world with no money or even sandals, they lacked nothing. Why? Because they understood the principle that God will provide all of our needs (Philippians 4:19)
We’ve become a spoiled generation that never has enough, we need more clothes, bigger houses, and shinier cars, but we don’t understand is we are becoming slaves to our devices. Every material item you want comes with a big price tag that will put you in debt even more. True freedom only comes when you learn to let go over your reliance on worldly objects and trust in God
Just as Jesus taught us God already knows your needs (Matthew 6:8), he knows you need clothing, food, and housing. If you draw near God he will draw near you (James 4:8) Learn to rely on God for all your needs, just as he takes care of the birds in the air, he will take care of you (Matthew 6:26)
The Lord is our Shepherd and we lack nothing (Psalm 23 ) Put you trust in God, the one who breathed life into your body (Genesis 2:7) God will provide all your needs in Jesus Name Amen
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. Proverbs 26:11
Does it feel like you keep getting stuck in the same circumstances? Do you continually fall for the same traps? This proverb is probably not the most popular but it’s very true. We want to live a blessed and peaceful life however we keep falling for the same addictions and diseases that caused us these hardships. What we need is true repentance if we want to see God work in our lives
Many times when we hear the word “repent” we think confess our sins to God and that’s it. But the true Biblical meaning of repentance is to change is to change our minds and actions (Luke 3) To just confess your sins but not change your actions would be useless. When we truly accept Christ and repent, we become transformed (Romans 12:2) and a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17) Remember God reads our hearts and minds (Romans 8:27) if you say you are a Christian but your actions don’t show it, God knows you’re a liar
The Biblical meaning of the word “Folly” means weakness, thoughtless procedure, meaning what your sin of choice is. So if your addicted to pornography, even though you thought you repented, you continually return to that sin of pornography. You are then the dog returning to his own vomit, how can you believe your life will be any different if you don’t cut out your sin or folly? Jesus taight us whatever it is that makes us sin to “Cut it Out” (Matthew 5:29-30) Does that mean it will be easy? No, but as Jesus said its better to go without now than to lose your soul forever.
Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand , stop returning to your folly, allow Christ into your heart and become transformed in Jesus Name Amen
For Jesus had commanded the impure spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places. Luke 8:29
Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “Legion,” he replied, because many demons had gone into him. Luke 8:30
And they begged Jesus repeatedly not to order them to go into the Abyss. Luke 8:31
Jesus has the power and the authority of God because he is his only begotten son. Even demons know this and tremble at his very name. Notice these demons beg Jesus not to thru them into hell, why would they say this?
Because they know the power Jesus has, also they know that the book of Revelation is true. Jesus will one day throw Satan and his…
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Do you believe The Bible is outdated? Do you think God could never understand us today? Well we must remember that God does not change (Malachi 3:6) Our Lord Jesus is the same Messiah who laid down his life for us on the cross.(John 15:13) The same Jesus who now sits on the throne with all power and authority that has been given to him by God Almighty.(Matthew 28:18)
The same sin that separated Adam and Eve from God in the beginning (Genesis 3) is the same sin that separates us today. The wages for our sins is still the same death (Romans 6:23) but Christ has paid the ransom for our sins.(Matthew 20:28) This grace from God will not change either. Once you’re covered by the blood of the Lamb of God,(John 1:29) you are redeemed forever
The same Jesus, who is King of Kings,(Revelation 19:16) will return again to reestablish Gods Kingdom forever. This outcome will not change. Satan will be defeated and thrown in the Lake of Fire,(Revelation 20:10) because he was defeated at the cross. All sin and death has been overcome by our Lord and Savior Jesus, (John 16:33)this will not change. Jesus will not change, he will reign victorious forever Amen
