12-30-2012-CAN GOD PUT BREATH-SKIN ON BONES?


EZEKIEL 37: 1-14 =

(1) THE HAND OF THE LORD WAS UPON ME, AND CARRIED ME OUT IN THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD AND SET ME DOWN IN THE MIDST OF A VALLEY, WHICH WAS FULL OF BONES.

(2) AND CAUSED ME TO PASS BY THEM ROUND ABOUT: AND BEHOLD, THERE WERE VERY MANY IN THE OPEN VALLEY; AND LO, THEY WERE VERY DRY.

(3) AND HE SAID TO ME, SON OF MAN, CAN THESE BONES LIVE? AND I ANSWERED, O LORD GOD, YOU KNOW.

(4) AGAIN HE SAID TO ME, PROPHESY UPON THESE BONES, AND SAY TO THEM, O YOU DRY BONES, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD.

(5) THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD TO THESE BONES; BEHOLD, I WILL CAUSE BREATH (AND SPIRIT), TO ENTER INTO YOU AND YOU SHALL LIVE:

(6) AND I WILL LAY SINEWS UPON YOU AND WILL BRING UP FLESH UPON YOU AND COVER YOU WITH SKIN AND PUT BREATH IN YOU AND YOU SHALL LIVE AND YOU SHALL KNOW, THAT I AM THE LORD. 

(7) 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 BONE.

(8) AND WHEN I BEHELD, LO, THE SINEWS AND THE FLESH CAME UPON THEM AND THE SKIN COVERED THEM OVER, BUT THERE WAS NO SPIRIT OF BREATH, IN THEM.

(9) THEN SAID HE UNTO ME, PROPHESY TO THE WIND, PROPHESY, SON OF MAN, AND SAY TO THE WIND, THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD; COME FROM THE FOUR WINDS, O BREATH, AND BREATHE ON THESE SLAIN, THAT THEY MAY LIVE.

(10) SO I PROPHESIED AS HE COMMANDED ME, AND THE BREATH CAME INTO THEM AND THEY LIVED AND STOOD ON THEIR FEET, AN EXCEEDING GREAT ARMY.

(11) THEN HE SAID TO ME, SON OF MAN, THESE BONES, ARE THE WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL: BEHOLD, THEY SAY, OUR BONES ARE DRIED AND OUR HOPE IS LOST: WE ARE CUT OFF, FOR OUR PARTS.

(12) THEREFORE PROPHESY AND SAY TO THEM, THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD; BEHOLD MY PEOPLE, I WILL OPEN YOUR GRAVES, ADN CAUSE YOU TO COME UP OUT OF YOUR GRAVES, AND BRING YOU INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

(13) AND YOU SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD, WHEN I HAVE OPENED YOUR GRAVES, O MY PEOPLE, AND BROUGHT YOU OUT OF YOUR GRAVES.

(14) AND SHALL PUT MY SPIRIT IN YOU AND YOU SHALL LIVE AND I SHALL PLACE YOU IN YOUR OWN LAND: THEN SHALL YOU KNOW, THAT I, THE LORD, HAVE SPOKEN IT AND PERFORMED IT, SAYS THE LORD.


"REMARKS"

AS SOON AS WE REALIZE THAT GOD, YAH'WEH, IS MORE AWESOME AND POWERFUL, AND ABLE TO BRING BACK TO LIFE ANYONE WHO IS DEAD, WE HAVE TO STAND IN AWE OF GOD, YAH'WEH.

I HAVE ALWAYS SAID, IF SOMEONE DIES, HE DOESN'T DIE, HIS BODY DIES, AND THE SPIRIT, WHO HE IS, LIVES FOREVER AND CAN BE PUT IN ANOTHER BODY, OR, LIKE BONES LAYING IN A DESERT, YOU COULD BE THAT SPIRIT IN THOSE BONES, THAT COME BACK TO LIFE.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

THE BIBLE EXPLAINS IT BEST.


ECCLESIASTES 12: 7 = THEN SHALL THE DUST,(DEAD BODY), RETURN TO THE EARTH, AS IT WAS,(DIRT): AND THE SPIRIT, SHALL RETURN TO GOD, WHO GAVE IT. 


SO, WHEN WE MOURN, WE MOURN FOR SOMEONE NOT THERE IN THAT COFFIN, BUT JUST BONES AND A DEAD BODY. SOUNDS A BIT MORBID DOESN'T IT?

THAT IS WHY I SUGGEST, TO CONSIDER LOOKING TO THE CEILING OF THE ROOM, WHERE SAY, YOUR FATHER WAS CLOSE TO DEATH AND YOU WANTED TO SAY, OR WRITE SOMETHING ON A PIECE OF PAPER, THAT HE COULD READ.

 BY LOOKING TO THE CEILING, THOUGH YOU COULDN'T SEE HIM, HE, AS LONG AS HIS BODY HADN'T LOST ITS VITAL SIGNS, OR IS DEAD, THEN HE WILL MORE THAN LIKELY, BE THERE IN SPIRIT, BUT NOT IN THE BODY.

AGAIN, WHEN THE BODY IS NEAR DEATH, THE SPIRIT OF THE PERSON, ALWAYS HAS THE TENDENCY TO RISE TO THE CEILING, AND BE LOOKING DOWN ON EVERYTHING HAPPENING AROUND HIM, AND UNDER HIM.

THIS IS NOT ALL THAT UNUSUAL AN EXPERIENCE. A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE HAVE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE TOO.

I KNOW FOR MOST OF YOU, YOU ARE GOING TO THINK I AM A FOOL, AND I KNOW, I AM A FOOL FOR CHRIST.

THE TRUTH IS, I HAVE BEEN THERE, IN THAT EXPERIENCE, THAT IS WHY I HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF THIS TYPE OF NEAR DEATH SCENARIO. I HAD THE FLU IN THE 50S, WHEN I WAS ABOUT 7-9 YEARS OLD. IT WAS A STRANGE FEELING, BUT VERY PEACEFUL.

I BEG YOU TO HANG ON TO THIS THOUGHT OF COMPASSION AND FINAL THOUGHTS TO THE PERSON, WHO IS CLOSE TO PASSING AWAY. IT WILL SEEM FOOLISH WHEN YOU DO IT, BUT IT WILL BE WORTH THE EFFORT, AND IS, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, THROUGH THE SCRIPTURE, TRUE AND MAY BE A FINAL COMFORT, FOR YOUR LOVED ONE.

REMEMBER! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD, YAH'WEH.
