Dry Bones

Recently my daily Bible study was in Ezekiel 37:1-10, “The 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, and caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and lo, they were very dry.  And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live?  And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.  Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these drybones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.  Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:  and 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…So 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.” Read More »

God Hears Intelligently

Psalm 6:8 “Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.”

Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary Definitions:

  • Heard:  Comes from a word that means “ To hear intelligently”.
  • Intelligently:  Endowed with the faculty of understanding or reason.
  • Voice:  To call aloud; voice aloud; sound aloud; bleating.
  • Bleating: Crying as a sheep.
  • Weeping: Dripping; overflowing; continual weeping.

About everybody that gets caught cries. Tears can be used to deceive and control a situation.   As we manage master manipulators and habitual liars, the importance of hearing the voice of weeping intelligently remains obvious.  If we do not, we could be moved to make all sorts of poor decisions with dire ramifications.
