In fact NEHEMIAH was a noble man but this was not considered by NEHEMIAH. He pressed on to fight for his people.We pray that GOD gives us the spirit of NEHEMIAH in order to fight for ourselves and others in the lord. God bless you.

Nehemiah took on the burden of his nation and sought the Lord. When he heard his ppl were in a bad state he did not rejoice or ignore it, though he had favor in the king palace as cupbearer

"O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God " how terrible is our God? the bible says God 's word is a two edged sword, no wonder the psalmist said God works in mysterious ways and no man can fathom his ways.

About two weeks ago I was listening to a well known man who I will not disclose here, however he said; We should become Nehemiah Christians, and so I want to study Nehemiah which I am familiar with his name. My thoughts after reading the first chapter of Nehemiah is this: Nehemiah was a God fearing man, and knew what God wanted for his people. I noticed he included himself in the prayer concerning sin, and needing forgiveness and deliverance. He reminded The Lord God of Heaven of his mercy if his people would turn back repent, and serve The God of Heaven, and how he would gather them from across the Heavens where they were scattered.I need to read again and see how the Lord will speak to me concerning being like a Nehemiah Christian. I am still reminded of the Scripture 2 Chronicles 7:14

Nehemiah did five things after he received the report about destructions of Jerusalem. He was sober and sat down with repentance heart, he wept for their sins, he mourned with contrite heart, feeling regret and sorrow for days for Israelites's sins and their offenses against God. Nehemiah also denied himself of pleasure of food by fasting which also was for days and he prayed seeking for forgiveness of the nation of Israel. Isaiah 66 verse 2b says "But this the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word." Believers in Christ, all people alike should do these five things in seeking God's mercy upon our nation for restoration, healing and blessings. God is looking for a contrite heart and humble spirit. The question is, will you pray for this nation like Nehemiah?. It was him alone that pray for Jerusalem at that time, me and you can pray for our nation, homes, schools and body of Christ in like manner. God said, He will look on us and restore, heal and safe us. The question is what did you with bad news you heard about this nation, homes, schools and about things happening in the body of Christ. Complacency have taken over. Let us take up the task to be concerned with the situation of our nation, schools and homes; Amos 6:1 and Isaiah 32:11, let us meditate prayerfully on these bible verses and pray for Holy Spirit to ignite our prayer life to pray for our nation this year 2014 and henceforth.

Qayhuriah but even so we do the wrong thing because we think it is for the right reason. We live in a world where all men are afflicted (if) doesn’t fit; GOD has enabled us.

 


Qayhuriah's comment on 11/10/2013, 12:00pm...

it's my responsibility to lift the other from the afflictions one is undergoing if GOD has enabled me.

 


Createams's comment on 11/10/2013, 9:59am...

This book is believed to be about a man Nehemiah and his love for God. Pay attention to what you read here; this is a book about the lengths’ that men will go to, in building walls and too separate ourselves from those whose opinion may differ from mine. This is an endless and hopeless endeavor to have God all to myself. This is what Satan wants to have God all to himself. Remember Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. Nehemiah’s love for God is unquestionable; yet Nehemiah doesn’t understand what true love for God is when compared to Satan. Satan is the embodiment of evil the Father of all lies (Satan came also among them) because in him is the perfection of Fear, Love, and Respect for God. So until we as men understand that it is our differences that make us whole in God we can never truly know what Love is.
Job 1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
1 John 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
1 John 4:21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also
This was John’s understanding Christ Jesus Doctrine.

Who will rise up like Nehemiah ,leaving behind all his status and comfort zone for the sake of God's people? At this time and age we are engaged in our selfish deeds forsaking God's work.if we sincerely pray to Him,turn away from our evil deeds, then He will restore our ruined cities, broken families, diseased bodies and many more just like Jerusalem was restored.we serve the same God of Nehemiah Who never changes.

 


Zacharia's comment on 9/25/2013, 5:31pm...

nehemiah heard&see the need then he took a step so is for us to see the need of this generation or in church,family&take a step to change it as nehemiah

 


James A. Williams's comment about verse 7 on 7/01/2013, 12:59am...

This is one of the great failings of the church today. There is no real preaching about repentance coming from the pulpit today. The way to true blessing and prosperity is to obey God. To Obey God the first time is better than seeking grace after the deed is done. Grace is not devine slack for people to sin with. This is a prayer of true repentance. God give us men that will preach like this once again.

Nehemiah has a burden to serve his maker, God.

 


Nzondelelo's comment on 2/21/2013, 8:53am...

The book of Nehemiah is relevant for all times. The resurrection of our Country from the "Ashes of Apartheid" requires men and women who are willing to do self introspection and request divine intervention in healing and building our Nation. The way ahead is long and we must first call to Almighty to show us the road less travelled where all people and races will hearken to a call. “Come let us build”, for the walls of our Country are fallen, leaders are corrupt, women and children are raped, drugs are order of the day. How long before we acknowledge our guilt and contravening of the commandments of Alfa and Omega.

 


Sarah's comment on 1/29/2013, 4:31pm...

When our hearts are touched and burdened like Nehemiah, and we don't know what to do to help, we can pray as he did. The Lord will open a way if it is his will and we are willing to step out of our comfort zone. Nehemiah risked things to admit his sorrow to the King, if the King didn't like his response he could have been killed. It's also interesting to note that in the worlds eyes Nehemiah had reached the top of the tree. The most honoured and trustworthy person was the wine taster, but God had a greater purpose for his life. Nehemiah was willing to leave the comfort of the palace to meet the needs of his suffering people even though he risked his own life and endured discomfort to do so, he was full of faith to do it because he knew God's calling was better. Jesus, burden the readers’ heart with what you have for them to do and may they be willing; let the gift of faith and the joy of your grace sustain them and give them victory!

I am 60 years young. Spent 23 years in prisons and jails but never knew Jesus. For the last 3 months I, through the grace of God found Jesus, after someone like Nehemiah lead me to the truth. I pray that I should follow his footsteps. GOD BLESS!

 


Janice's comment on 5/09/2012, 1:10am...

Nehemiah is introduced in the first chapter as the son of Hachaliah. In the month of Chisleu, or Kislev, was the ninth month in the twentieth year would have been 445B.C. Shushan the palace, or better Susa, the Citadel was the winter resort of the persian kings, Nehemial was concerned about the remnant that was left in captivity, in an administrative division of a country, he began by asking his brother an certain men of Judah, about the Jew that escaped captivity and those that didn't, he than learned they were in distress, and burdened, and his eyes began to fill with water and he wanted and mourned fasted and prayed before our father, than he reminded God that he keepth covenant,and his mercies that are new every morning, for those who love him and keep his commandments, he asked the the lord to open the eyes of his he hasart, and lend an ear to here what his servant has to say, for I have sinned and fallen short of thine glory, Israel has sinned, and none of us has kept your commandments, that you commanded Moses, saying if you keep not my commandments, I will scatter you all over the nations, but if you keep them, I Will take you to the place where I have set my name, old lord I strongly request that you here me when I pray, I am redeemed by your power and your might, I am the one who drank from the kings cup to make sure that it was safe for the king. And the word of the lord is blessed.

comment to Pastordale's : you stated" Nehemiah seems to be call from disobedient." Nehemiah was a Kings' cupbearer inmagine his character.

 


Pastor Edward Everette's comment on 12/30/2011, 4:31am...

It mean that GOD has a work for us to do.by going into highway,malls,market places,and our home and tell of his mercy and grace.and that he wants all men and women to come unto him.and be safe.it time out for playing church. It time to put christ back in home and schools and in the street.

 


Mizpa's comment on 12/25/2011, 2:31pm...

more to the point, If you type a search for "Buku Puisi utk Yesus' Site - GOD's nama on Israel "

Another place where GOD has placed His name, Is in/on Christ. Though we have been cast out (by sin) to the ends of heaven, If HE (Christ) be lifted up (Exhault ye the name of the LORD) He shall draw all men unto HIM. He writes the commandments on our heart, To as many as recieved HIM, gave He power to become the children of GOD. If we hear His commandments, and repent, then we, who like sheep, have been scattered, shall return to the place that GOD has set His name (Yeshua/ Jesus.) The first letters in each word above Christ on the cross (marking who the lamb belongs to) are Y H V H. GOD's name

 


Mizpa's comment about verse 9 on 12/24/2011, 7:17pm...

If you do a search, of GOD's name on the mountains of ISRAEL, you will find, North of Jerusalem, The name of GOD written on the mountains. It can also be seen with google earth.

 


Vannessa johnson's comment on 11/14/2011, 7:52am...

nehemiah, love for his people and the willingness to come out of his comfort zone, and do a mighty work, and gave explicite details, what to do in time of trouble, fast, pray seek his face, and how the doors was open, walk in the blessing.

 


Pastordale's comment on 11/07/2011, 9:39am...

Nehemiah seems to be a call from disobedient behavior and walk in the call of God. This call requires us to be obedient to him.
It is good to know that if I mess up badly that there is a place where He has provided lots of mercy and grace; just waiting for me for the asking, repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. amen
God is waiting to bring us back into his special gathering place where we will never ever be cast from his prescence again. God bless. pastordale

 


Mariann's comment on 10/28/2011, 8:44am...

This chapter of Nehemiah seems to say to me that God is a mericiful God and no matter who we are if we stray or commit sin he will bring us back to a place of restoration. God requires obedience of his word; However when we are disobedient there are promised consequences.Thsi chapter also seems to say that that the captives were praying for God's help and he provided them help from Nehemiah. God will always have a ram in the bush for those of us who repent and are backed up against the wall.

 


OLAYINKA's comment on 5/15/2011, 8:21am...

This a call for a passionate love, dedication and concern for our country of origin whereever we are. We should pray for all those in authority and for the peace of Jerusalem.
