    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 griefs over his destroyed city and he gets the desire to rebuiled the fallen wall he seeks for forgiveness from GOD he repents for his sins and the sins of all Isralites.He realises that its the unholiness that has made them to be scattered and i think thats the best thing we should learn to ask for forgiveness first to GOD and to stay a clean way of life
