SERMON: Battle of the Bones (Pastor Vlad)

Message: Battle of the Bones
Speaker: Pastor Vladimir Savchuk


Dry bones became new flesh with skin. (Ezekiel 37:7-8)
Breath brought life. (Ezekiel 37:9-10)

1. BELIEVE: “breath came into them, and they lived” (Ezekiel 36:25-27)

Cleansing ⟾ New Heart ⟾ God’s Spirit ⟾ New Life

In the Old Testament, God gave commandments.
In the New Testament, God gave the Holy Spirit.

New nature doesn’t work without the Holy Spirit. New nature is like the lock and the Holy Spirit is the key.

As prophesying turned the dry bones into living beings, so is preaching turns the valley of dry bones into an army of believers.

Your preaching is a prophecy.

Our valley of dead dry bones is waiting for the preachers.

While the culture is into protests, we are to be into preaching-prophesy.

2. BELONG + BUILD: “stood on their feet"

Spiritual development has two feet:
membership & maturity
connected & committed
belong & build

The Circles of Commitment (by Rick Warren)
1. Community - the unreached
2. Crowd - attendees
3. Congregation - members
4. Committed - disciples
5. Core - ministers

The circle gets smaller as you get closer.
The commitment gets higher as you get closer.

If our church grows but people don’t, it’s inflammation, not transformation.

3. BECOME: “An exceeding great army.”

Dry bones must become an army, not a crowd or a mob.

2 Samuel 11:1-2
Don’t go to a battle when it’s not your season.
Don’t stay home when it’s your season to go to battle.
