PART 3: SPEAKING LIFE TO DRY BONES: PROPHETIC ACTION

Categories: Inspiration

desert-wallpapers-hd-67 So I spoke this message, just as he told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. 8 Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them. 9 Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.” 10 So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army. (Ezekiel 37:7-10, NLT)

This is the third and final part that I have to write about speaking life to dry bones. God first sets you in the middle of dry bones, He then gives you prophetic revelation and instruction as to what is going on and how to address it. The next step is you taking action and speaking into the situation in order to see life come to dry bones.

This process really is no different than any process in life. You’re placed in a situation, you assess the situation, and then you act. The difference is we need to be sure we are sensitive to the Lord’s leading in every phase. Revelation requires action. Revelation doesn’t come just for our own benefit, it’s for the benefit of those we touch and reach.

Ezekiel prophesied as he was commanded and as he did life began to breathe into the dry bones. If you’ve ever experienced prophetic ministry personally in your life you can relate to this. True New Testament prophets never reveal the problem, they reveal the solution. You’re in a dry place and the prophetic word begins to reveal the solution to your problems or your questions and you begin to feel life again in situations that you thought were dead and forgotten. Prophesy makes dry, dead things, begin to shake, move and rattle again!

I hope these last 3 days have encouraged you and given you some tools to work with. Prophecy is for today and it is what God uses to release destiny and completed ruin the enemy’s plans. It’s not fortune telling, fortune telling only speaks to dead things, the past because the devil only knows your past, he has no right to your future. Prophesy comes straight from the throne room of God and creates, builds, directs, uplifts, and brings life back into the dry places of your life!

Get ready, there’s some things in your life that are about to be revived again!
