S.A. Fix – April 16, 2017 (Morning Worship)

As Ezekiel continues to proclaim the good news of the coming New Creation Kingdom of God, in Ezekiel 37:1-14 he describes what the people of this place will be. They will be people who, though ruined by their sin, have been raised to new life by the Holy Spirit of God himself. What a picture of our resurrection hope in Jesus Christ – dry and lifeless bones raises to new and everlasting life! And then God’s people are rallied to be a mighty “army of God,” not fighting against earthly people and nations, but against the powers of darkness and spiritual forces of evil under the prince of the power of the air, against sin, and death.
