The Eighth Day: Up From The Grave
There are two forms of resurrection coming, spiritual and physical. The "dry bones" prophecy of this chapter refers to a great future physical resurrection from which they will come to truly know The Lord for the first time. That great physical resurrection is portrayed by the Eighth Day annual Holy Day of the LORD (see the Fact Finder question below).
"37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, 37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. 37:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? [see What Happens When You Die?]
Christ Observed All Of The Holy Days That He Instituted
Christ, Who was 'The God Of The Old Testament' commanded His people, of all time, to observe the eight days of the Feast of Tabernacles.
"Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month [see The Bible Calendar and Bible Months], when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast [i.e. The Feast of Tabernacles] unto The Lord [see YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD] seven days: on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before The Lord your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto The Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month." (Leviticus 23:39-41 KJV)
Jesus Christ observed the Feast of Tabernacles; His "living waters" lesson was appropriately taught on "the Great Day":
"Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the Temple [see "My Father's House"], and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? [see also Doctorates Of Error] Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent Me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him." (John 7:14-18 KJV)
