    Did anyone know that Ezra and Nehemiah were the last 2 books of the O.T. written, Nehemiah being the very last, before the 400 yrs. silence between the Old and New testaments? There were writings during those 400 yrs., but even the writers didn't consider them inspired of God, is why they are not included in the canon of His word. Nehemiah was the last INSPIRED word of God for the O.T.

    To Ms. Gaddis - that was very insightful. Yes, we can build our walls - without prayer at the same time for the lost. It's prayer and only prayer that will give us a burden for souls.

    God is almighty. He constantly trying to convince us of that, but we fail to reconise and obey him. This is a constant battle between God and man. Man fail to realize who God is and respect and obeisance he deserve.
  • Derest Brown
    In v 5, Nehemiah uses 7 definitives for the One he addresses:
    1) LORD
    2) the God
    3) of heaven
    4) the great
    5) and terrible God
    6) that keepeth covenant
    7) and mercy

    Then he is explicit about the character of those God shows mercy:
    --for them that love him
    --and observe his commandments

    We must be faithful in obeying His commands, and He will ALWAYS hear and answer our prayers.

    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
