    Glory, blessings and honour be unto him who sits on the throne in heaven.
    Jehovah states clearly here that He will convert dry bones into mighty men.
    The dry bones are life's disasters that have literally grounded you. Diseases. Wars. Persecution. Famine. Rejection. Despair. Injustice. Poverty.
    God shall lift us up from all these but not before all hope is lost and only death is staring at us.

    That all seems pretty clear to me, David is a type of Jesus Christ. This chapter has nothing to do with you or anyone, unless they are Jews. You all need about one hundred pages a day Bible study. That is just it.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    As God revived the dry bones of Israel and united the kingdoms decades after Ezekiel's prophecy so shall God restore all the dead elements in our lives as we obey His commandments and trust His Healing power.
