dry bones ezekiel

by Dr. R. L. Hymers, Jr.

A sermon preached at the Baptist Tabernacle of Los Angeles
Lord’s Day Morning, June 21, 2009

“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 bones, 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” (Ezekiel 37:3-5).

Spurgeon printed three of the sermons that he preached from this passage of Scripture. One of them is very famous. It is called “The Restoration and Conversion of the Jews” (The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Pilgrim Publications, 1991 printing, volume X, pp. 425-436). Although Spurgeon was not a dispensationalist and had little light on Bible prophecy, he was always true to the Scriptures. Verses 11 through 14 clearly say that this passage refers to the restoration of Israel to their own land, to what was then called “Palestine.” Since that is clearly stated, that is what Spurgeon preached, way back in 1864.

But Spurgeon preached another sermon on this passage of Scripture in 1882. In this second sermon, Spurgeon said that these verses are

…a striking picture of the salvation of Israel from national death [but] We may with equal accuracy see in it a vivid representation of the work of grace upon the hearts of all those who are quickened into spiritual life by the power of divine grace (C. H. Spurgeon, “Despair Denounced and Grace Glorified,” The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Pilgrim Publications, 1973 edition, volume XXVIII, p. 469).
