Jesus came to this world to redeem us from sin, death and sickness. He was made to be sin on our behalf, that we might have life. Isaiah 53:4-5 declares, “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.”
In Ezekiel chapter 37 the Spirit of God took Ezekiel to a valley filled with dry bones, and asked him, “Son of man, can these dry bones live?” In the natural it didn’t look like any life could bloom in that wasteland of bones, but Ezekiel knew enough about God to know to know that anything is possible with God. So he answered, “O Lord, you know”.

Last night I dreamed of a couple of people I know. It was as if I was off in a distance watching several incidents take place. I watched as a friend of mine who works at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta arrive at work. When she got to entrance she was told by the security guard that the bank was shut down for good. Money are we knew it was gone. The people around were all shocked and talking about their jobs, the economy and what was everyone going to do.
