Can These Bones Live?

After God commanded Ezekiel to prophesy the rebirth of Israel in Ezekiel 36, He gave the prophet a vision of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37.

Through the prophet Ezekiel, God declared that Israel will be restored to her promised land to be a great blessing under the leadership of David, My servant - this is clearly a prophetic reference to the future reign and kingdom under Jesus Christ the Messiah, the descendant of David.

Ezekiel 37:24-25
David My servant shall be king over them
, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them.

Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever.

During the time of giving this prophecy, Israel had lost his nationhood, deprived of her land, her king and her temple. She had been divided. Her tribes had dispersed for such a long time that unification and restoration seemed impossible. Thus God gave Ezekiel the vision of the dry bones as a sign of hope and love.

God brought the prophet in a vision to a valley full of dry bones. The Lord directed him to prophesy to the scattered bones.

Ezekiel obeyed the Lord. The bones came together, flesh developed, skin covered the flesh, breath entered the bodies, and they stood up in a vast army.
