What does the Valley of Dry Bones mean for us now?Feb 25th, 2010 | By admin | Category: Psalm 83 and Gog & Magog, Questions You Ask (click for the full answer)
To understand the significance of the Valley of Dry Bones, see our verse by verse study in Ezekiel chapter 37
To answer the question on what it means to us, the Christian: Israel is promised to come back into favor with God. When we see the nonsense going on in the Middle East we are to condemn the hypocrisy of the Palestinians and Muslim world, and that of the mighty UN. They are fighting against God, and there is no way they can win. The land, the whole land of Israel belongs to the Jew, and God promises to give it to them. Since 1878 we see the bones starting to come together, with the settlement of Peta Tikva. In 1948 flesh was put upon those bones, and maybe in 1967 when they took back Jerusalem, blood was in the veins. They just await the breath, which comes after Jacob’s Trouble, Gog of Magog from Ezekiel 38, and chapter 39.
The main lesson for the Christian is to understand where we are chronologically. Matthew tells us what to the expect during the parousia of our Lord. We see the fig tree (Israel) blossom, that is show signs 0f life, and are told that this generation who witnesses that event will not perish before all is accomplished. We are hoping the blossoming is 1948, but it could be 1967, in any event we are at “the end”. Time is short! We need to wake up, trim our lamps, and go out to meet our Lord!
If the “us” of the questioner is a Jew: Then hold onto the promise that G-d has given you. Do not let the fear of man (UN, Muslims or anyone) steal that promise from you. The battle is long from over, but the end is very near. We expect only two more major battles in Israel, Psalm 83 and Jacob’s Trouble. After that time we are into the Kingdom of G-d and “no one will hurt nor destroy in G-d’s holy mountain” ever again!
