    This passage, chp. 3 in Nehemiah has been a source of inspiration and working as a team in building the kingdom of God and sharing the burden.

    I had it explained that the gates being restored were essential for the Church to fully function as intended. That the dung gate has been ignored the dung where everybody eliminates all their junk. Mistakes unclean things that get picked up in today 's society or cultural contamination due to the mass cross pollenization of a mixed society. Teachings and just the general influence that gets into the Body of Christ. So we need to restore the Dung gate the ministry of deliverance. All part of church restoration so Jesus can present His Bride the church to His Father as His Bride without spot blemish or wrinkle.

    I just need to know how the work of God was carried out with all the 12 tribes of Israel getting involved. This is purely division of labor. As believers we can also do something in house of the Lord.
