Dry Bones... It Could Happen Soon

 1The 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 the valley which was full of bones,
 2And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
 3And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
 4Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
 5Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
 6And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
 7So 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 his bone.
 8And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
 9Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
 10So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
 11Then he said unto 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.
 12Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
 13And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
 14And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD. (Ezekiel 37:1-14, King James Version)

For about 1800 years the Jewish people were scattered far away from Israel, forced away from the land God gave them through His everlasting covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants. During those years the land withered into a dry wasteland of blowing sand and brush, with only a few migrant sheepherders inhabiting the area.

The prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Amos foretold of those years. However, they also said the Jewish people would return to their land one day never to be uprooted again - predicted almost 2500 years before it began to happen. Ezekiel predicted that the valley of dry bones would one day come alive again and the land would flourish.

The Jewish people began to return in great numbers in the late 1800's and 1900's. Isaiah said that Israel would be reborn in one day (Is. 66:8). That happened on May 14, 1948 - the only time ever in recorded history that a nation has re-formed after disbanding for hundreds of years...and it happened in one day. Then, Israel regained control of Jerusalem on June 14, 1967 in the six-day war, victorious against overwhelming odds.

Today there are almost 8 million people in Israel, and the land is flourishing. The prophecy will achieve total fulfillment during the millenium when they will have all of the promised land. That could happen soon!
