Have you ever wondered what it would’ve been like to witness with your own eyes the events of the Bible? I have, and with that curiosity I let myself wonder “What Would It Have Been Like?” Care to travel with me today as I explore “To See Dead Bones Live!”
Can you imagine being there with God and Him turning to you to ask what is supposedly a simple but not so simple question? “Son of man, can these bones live?” (Ez. 37:3, NKJV). “What?

At that point I believe Ezekiel was starting to realize in a whole new way the magnitude of God.
