Discussion for Nehemiah 1

  • Min Herbert
    Their are many thing in our own life to be rebuilding as of now our mind our spirit become the person God want us to become in is name and find the favor of God by walking with faith knowing we are the head and not the tail that is what Nehemiah did with the wall that has falling down also the fence that is on fire. I love that word fire why it let us know something can be broken also redeemed
  • 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.

    Thank you JESUS, for the LORD Is calling us; the REMNANT means us, the devourer have destroyed us, but there is still something left, something that can make us to connect with our creator, the one whose convanent will never be broken. GOD IS FAITHFULL, LETS USE OUR FAITH TO PRAISE HIM, FOR HE IS ABLE

    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:

    Nehemiah is a great story of repenting, restoring and rebuilding. The people had a mind to work! Leadership! I love this story!!!
