Message for January 3, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

The spirit of the Lord came over me. The Lord brought me out by his Spirit and put me down in the middle of a valley. The valley was filled with bones. He led me all around them. I saw that there were very many bones at the bottom of the valley, and they were very dry. Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live? I answered, “Only you know, Almighty Lord.”  Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones. Tell them, ‘Dry bones, listen to the Lord’s word.  This is what the Almighty Lord says to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you will live.  Ezekiel 37:1-5                 
God asked Ezekiel,” can these bones live?”  Ezekiel answered, “Only you know  Lord.”  Ezekiel I want you to “prophesy” to these dead bones.  Prophecy means to speak words of divine revelation – words of force and power.  But Pastor Shirley I am not a prophet. I am not a minister.  If you are a born again son of God, that is credential enough for you to prophesy. The word is nigh you even in your mouth.  Through the creative power of God’s word in our mouth hopeless situations can change.                                           When we prophesy, we are speaking what God already desires to do.  God can do anything by Himself and in the case with Ezekiel and the dry dead bones God could have sent the Spirit to do what needed to be done.  But He wanted the cooperation of Ezekiel.  He wanted Ezekiel to come into agreement with Him.
When we prophesy,  we are agreeing with God.  God then blows upon the dry bones, upon that hopeless situation.  He sends the Wind, the Breath, and the Spirit.  Dry bones will live again.
Who can help but to prophesy.
  Does God have your cooperation-your agreement?  May it be a yes and amen!
