DAY 2: The Masada Mystery
We were standing in the middle of a large valley, harsh and forbidding.
“A desert mountain fortress called Masada became the grave of ancient Israel,” said the teacher. “But after two thousand years, the nation of Israel was resurrected. The people were resurrected, the cities were resurrected, and the Israeli soldier was resurrected. And then the resurrected nation decided to return to its ancient grave.”
“To Masada? Why?”
“To excavate it, to dig it up. The man in charge of the excavation was one of the nation’s most famous soldiers and archaeologists. And Israeli soldiers helped in the excavation. So now on the grave of Israel’s ancient soldiers walked her resurrected soldiers to see what lay hidden in its ruins.”
“And what was hidden in the ruins?”
“A prophetic mystery…a Scripture. It was from the Book of Ezekiel, the section that contained the prophecy of the Valley of Dry Bones. You see, God is real. And His will is to restore the broken, bring hope from hopelessness, and life from death. Don’t ever give up. For with God, nothing is impossible… even restoration of a nation from a valley of dry bones.”
The Mission: Bring your most hopeless situations and issues to God. Believe God for the impossible. Live and move in the power of the impossible.
