Verses:

Ezek. 37:10 “So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them; and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.”

 

Excerpts:

Most [Christians] do not see the practical way to have the Body, the church, and the house of God. Ezekiel 37 clearly reveals that the only way, the unique way, is the way of life. The Lord did not tell Ezekiel to exercise certain gifts or to teach. The Lord charged Ezekiel to prophesy, to utter, or speak forth, some words for God. As Ezekiel declared something to the dead ones for God, He blew upon them and they received breath. When the breath came into them, it became life to them.

 

Life is wonderful. It takes care of so many problems. Our physical body can overcome many problems simply because it is living. Because we have life and are in life, we are one. Now we are an army fighting the battle, and we are a dwelling place for the Lord. The army is formed with dry bones which have been made alive, and the dwelling place with dry sticks which have been enlivened and joined together. Every part of the army and of the dwelling place is full of life and is living in oneness. This is the Lord’s recovery.

 

As long as we are one, the Lord will fight the battle for us. Only when God has judged all the enemies can His people dwell peacefully without fear. When His people are in such a peaceful condition, the building up of the Lord’s dwelling place will be completed, and the Lord will have a place of rest among His people. (Life-study of Ezekiel, msg. 18)
