Discussion for Nehemiah 1

  • Ms. Gaddis
    Some of us have built our "wall" a little TOO good. Yes, we keep the world out, but in doing so, we have lost all compassion for the lost. We look at the lost as just another hostile, and even use their hostility as an excuse not to "tell every creature." What our world around us has become, is our own fault, for leaving the world on the other side of our wall. And now they are breaking it down.

    God is talking to his people who are in captivity many are chosen but few were willing because of lack of faith, the Lord promised them those who were scattered he would bring them back, If they would worship him and keep his commandments, many Pastors are getting God's praises today Gods looking for a church that would praise him, a church where he could put his name true worship. Hallelujah

    It is a great story in the Bible. It appears to involve the physical rebuilding of the city of Jerusalem. That is NOT however the full message here. It is more to do with the building within our inner self a 'WALL' against the corruption and mortality of all those things attached to the 'FLESH' which Saint Paul has referred to in 1 Corinthians 15.53:
