The Dry Bones of Israel
Finally, God gives to Ezekiel and to us the meaning of this vision. The dry bones are symbolic of Israel and reflect her loss of faith and discouragement.
Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’
Because of the Holocaust many Jewish people lost their faith in God. Even today we often hear the challenge, “Why did God allow the Holocaust?”
PRAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO REGAIN THEIR FAITH IN GOD AND SEE THAT HE BROUGHT LIFE OUT OF THE ASHES.
