Israel falls as a punishment for disobedience 

And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, on the fifth day of the month, that one who had escaped from Jerusalem came to me and said, “The city has been captured!” (Ezekiel 33:21 NKJV)
God can cleanse and revive you 

For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit (Ezekiel 36:24 – 36:26 NKJ) 

   
 The valley of dry bones – being dead in sin

The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son (Ezekiel 37:1 – 37:3 NKJV)
God can give life even from dried bones  

And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” (Ezekiel 37:3 NKJV)

Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! ‘Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: 
“Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. “I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you (Ezekiel 37:4 – 37:6 NKJV)

Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”

 ” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army (Ezekiel 37:9 – 37:10 NKJV)
God initiates restoration of our spiritual dryness  

Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ’Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ 

“Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 
“Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. 
“I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. 
Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD (Ezekiel 37:11 – 37:14 NKJV)

Conditions of a blessed man

 Blessed is the man 

 Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, 

 Nor stands in the path of sinners, 

 Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, 

 And in His law he meditates day and night (Psalm 1:1 – 1:2 NKJV)
