Ezekiel 37:4 KJV
Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
In this case prophecy was both foretelling and forthtelling.
Preaching to these dry bones, Ezekiel was both telling them what God would do with them and effecting what God would do. The dry bones would live. And the dry bones would live through the preaching of God's Word.
And so it is with every preacher of God. His message is one that promises life and at the same time affects the life it promises. As we preach what God has said He would do, God does what He said.
