The world around us may be as it was in the day of Ezekiel, a valley of dry bones. But as God told Ezekiel, He is able to make the dry bones live and serve Him, and “he shall know that I am the Lord when I have opened your graves, oh my people and brought you out of your graves and put My Spirit in you, and ye shall live.” We live in a graveyard world today, as did Ezekiel. And the dry bones of this world may not know it, but God the spirit is at work, totally at work to bring forth the new creation out of the valley of dry bones which make up our age. God is the necessary cause, and the necessary connection and power between all events. He is a very present reality.
