KIDS CORNER – Valley Of Dry Bones

After many warnings from the Lord, the land of Israel was conquered
by the Babylonians. The Israelites were taken prisoner and removed from their homeland.
While in captivity, the people lost all hope in ever returning. The Lord gave the Prophet
Ezekiel a vision of a valley filled with dry bones. The Lord told Ezekiel to prophesy over the
dry bones, telling them that the Lord will bring life back into them. As Ezekiel spoke the
words the Lord gave him, a rattling sound filled the valley as the bones began to come
together, forming skeletons. The skeletons were then covered in flesh, but the bodies had
no life in them. The Lord told Ezekiel to prophesy over the lifeless bodies again, this time
telling them that the Lord would fill them with breath. As Ezekiel prophesied to them, they
were filled with breath. This vision was meant for the people of Israel, dried up of all hope.
Through this vision, the Lord was promising to fill them with life and hope again through
His Spirit.
