    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

Hallelujah

    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
