Anchor Song: Same God

I’m sure you are familiar with the word “parable”, another word that has a similar meaning and can be used in place of parable is “allegory”.
Allegory – An expressive style that uses fictional characters and events to describe some subject by suggestive resemblances; an extended metaphor.
One of the things I have learnt listening to Pst. Poju Oyemade is how to process stories or examples in the Bible. You see, the Bible is not just a book of history, the stories and examples documented are not just meant to tell us what has happened in times past, they also serve as allegories, telling you and I what is happening today. So when you read a portion of the Bible and it seems to describe you or something you are going through, it’s because God is trying to tell you something.
For example, read through Ezekiel 37. God took to the prophet to a valley filled with dry bones and asked him if the bones could live again, and his answer was, “Lord, only you know”. Then God told him what to say and when he did, the bones started to come together, and the process went on till complete living beings were formed. Allegorically, what are your dry bones? Do you have dreams or aspirations that now seem so far fetched because your current reality doesn’t seem like they can still happen? This morning, God is asking you, can those “dry bones” live again? Remember, Hebrew 13:8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever[GW]. So, if dry bones could become living beings back then, who says dead dreams can become a living reality! God Bless You!
