How to Revive Dry Bones by Ernest Easley

How to Revive Dry Bones
Ernest L. Easley
Ezekiel 37:1-14

Now with our Bibles opened to Ezekiel 37, I want to take us to a valley full of dry bones. We are going to see today what God showed the prophet Ezekiel so long ago, that spiritual awakening is within our reach!

And of course I'm talking about the vision God gave Ezekiel concerning the nation of Israel. They had become so discouraged, so down, so defeated that we're going to hear them say in verse 11, ''Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!''

Now hear the word of the Lord.

Second verse:

Dem bones, dem bones gonna rise again.
Dem bones, dem bones gonna rise again.
