And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.” Ezekiel 37:1-4 “So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.” Ezekiel 37:7 God sets the prophet Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones for one purpose—to prophesy life.

ABRAHAM—SARAH Genesis 17 ”[Abraham] being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb.” Romans 4:19 Abraham and Sarah were both old.

In the natural, there was no way that Sarah could ever conceive and birth a son. She was past the age of child bearing. “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God…” Luke 18:27   What is in your life that needs to come back to life? LAZARUS John 11 Lazarus had been dead for four days. The human body begins to decay after three days, which means Lazarus’ body was already experiencing corruption or decay. “And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin.

Please come lay Your hands on her and heal her that she may live.” “[Jairus] besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.” Mark 5:23 Jesus went with him, but the crowd was all around Him. He also stopped and healed a woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years. Before He arrived at Jairus’ house, someone came and informed Jairus that his daughter was dead and there was no need to trouble Jesus. Jesus was not afraid of death. He turned to Jairus and said, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.” “As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.” Mark 5:36 “And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? The damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.” Mark 5:38-39 He prophesied life to her and what happened? Death had to flee.
