8.26.21 永不放棄 Never Give Up

以西結 37:10 於是我遵命說預言,氣息就進入骸骨,骸骨便活了,並且站起來,成為極大的軍隊。

Ezekiel 37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.

以西結的骸骨異像是一個眾所周知的經文。但是,讓我們小心,我們對它的熟悉不會使我們在閱讀時失去它的新鮮感和力量。上帝已經向我們展示了一種,當我們失去希望時,即使我們的狀況就像骸骨一樣仍能”活起來”的方法。當以西結聽從神的吩咐對骸骨說預言時,神做了不可能的事,使骸骨活了!以西結被告知不要用他自己的話而是用上帝的話來預言,而且他被告知不僅要這樣做一次,而且要這樣做兩次。對枯骨說預言需要信心和服從,因為幾乎沒有什麼比一堆骸骨更令人絕望的了。然而,上帝不僅能使乾枯的骨頭活過來;祂把他們變成了一支極大的軍隊。我們需要像以西結一樣,憑著信心對我們那沒有盼望的“骸骨”說預言,然後藉著聖靈的大能不可能的事將會發生。。因此,要不斷向枯骨說預言說“聽耶和華的話”(第4節)和“向氣息說預言”(第9節),直到“骸骨”成為神的大軍!

The dry bones vision of Ezekial is a well-known passage. Let us be careful, though, that our familiarity with it not cause the passage to lose its freshness and power when we read it. God has shown us a way to come alive, when our hope is lost and even if our condition is like that of dry bones. When Ezekiel obeyed God’s command to prophesy over the dry bones, God did the impossible, making the bones come alive! Ezekiel was told to prophesy using not his own words but the Words of God, and he was told to do this not only once but twice. It takes faith and obedience to prophesy over dry bones, for practically nothing seems to be as hopeless as a collection of dry bones. Yet God was not only able to make the dry bones come alive; He turned them into a great army. We need to be like Ezekiel to prophesy by faith over our hopeless set of “dry bones”, and then by the power of the Holy Spirit something will happen. Therefore, keep prophesying to the dry bones to “hear the word of the Lord” (v. 4) and “prophesy to the breath”(v. 9) until “the dry bones” become a great army for God!
