(The Valley of Dry Bones As It Relates To Our Inner Cities)

Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37:1-14 came to him after God had directed him to prophesy the rebirth of Israel in chapter 36. God had just announced, through the prophet, that Israel will be restored to her land in blessing under the leadership of “David, my servant who shall be king over them” (Ezekiel 37:24), clearly a reference to the future under Jesus Christ, descendant of David (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7; Luke 1:31-33). However, this seemed remote in light of Israel’s present condition. She was “dead” as a nation, deprived of her land, her king and her Temple. She had been divided and dispersed for so long that unification and restoration seemed impossible. So God gave Ezekiel the vision of the dry bones as sign.
God transported Ezekiel, in a vision to a valley full of dry bones and directed him to speak to the bones. Ezekiel was to tell the bones that God would make breath enter the bones and they would come to life, just as in the creation of man when He breathed life into Adam (Genesis 2:7). Ezekiel obeyed, the bones came together, flesh developed, skin covered the bones, breath entered them and they stood up in a vast army. This vision symbolized the whole House of Israel that was then in captivity. Like unburied skeletons, the people were in a state of living death, pining away with no end to their judgment in sight. They thought their hope was gone and they were cut off forever. The surviving Israelites felt their national hopes had been dashed and the nation had died in the flames of Babylon’s attack with no hope of resurrection.
In contrast, this reviving of the dry bones as it pertains to our inner cities signified God’s plan for the future of  Urban America through the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. The vision I discuss in my book indicates new life depended upon God’s power alone and not the circumstances of the people. Putting “breath” by the power of God in the bones showed that God would not only restore our inner cities physically but also spiritually as well. It will be fulfilled when God send me thirty people within the state of Illinois or beyond for them to come to Chicago and help me start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute in Chicago first and eventually in 25 other cities within 25 states. Once we’re established in 25 states I have been instructed to expand the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement to Africa, Brazil, and the Caribbean Islands until Christ returns to establish His Millennial Kingdom (Matthew 24:30-31).
