The Holy Spirit, a power for the upliftment of the Church

Sunday 23 May 2021

Theme : " The Holy Spirit, a power for the upliftment of the Church " Text : Ezekiel 37: 1-14

1. The hand of the LORD was upon me, and the LORD transported me in the spirit, and set me down in the midst of a valley full of bones. 2. He made me pass by them all around; and behold, there were many on the face of the valley, and they were utterly dry. 3. He said to me, Son of man, can these bones live? I said, Lord Eternal, you know it. 4. He saith unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5. Thus saith the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold, I will bring a spirit into you, and you shall live; 6.I will give you sinews, I will cause flesh to grow on you, I will cover you with skin, I will put a spirit within you, and you shall live. And you will know that I am the Lord. 7. I prophesied according to the command I had received. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, and, behold, there was a movement, and the bones came near to one another. 8. I beheld, and, behold, sinews came upon them, and the flesh grew, and the skin covered them above; but there was no spirit in them. 9. He said to me, Prophesy, and speak to the spirit! prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit, Thus saith the Lord GOD: Spirit, come from the four winds, blow on these dead, and let them live again. 10. I prophesied as he commanded me. And the spirit entered into them, and they came to life, and they stood on their feet: it was a great army, very many. 11. He said to me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say: Our bones are withered, our hope is destroyed, we are lost! 12. Prophesy therefore, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I will open your graves, and bring you out of your graves, O my people, and will bring you back into the land of Israel. 13. And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and bring you out of your graves, O my people. 14. I will put my spirit in you, and you will live; I will restore you to your land, and you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken and done, says the Lord.

Let us remember :


Through the Holy Spirit, everything is possible because no barrier can stand up before the face of the Lord. The Spirit of God can bring life back to where it was gone. Even when the irreparable is found, the Spirit of God has the power to repair everything without exception. The Church today has lost its luster, It is disfigured and dilapidated, It no longer has a soul. The Church crawls and her tomorrow is uncertain. If the people of God, on whom his name is called, humble themselves, pray, and seek his face, and turn away from their evil ways; the Holy Spirit will clothe her with skin, sinew, flesh; he will row in his bosom, spirit and soul. The gifts will live again, the people will run to peaceful waters because the thirst for God will be manifest. Conflicts will cease because the Spirit will be in the lives of the faithful and the clergy. Let us bring the Spirit back to the center of the Church. Excellent Pentecost Sunday. Amen Alain Louz.-
