    His lesson for the Jews was that whatever he told them, they would argue about it and debate. They never listen, still to this day they question the concept of God in their churches. And so if they don't agree on one thing, he's going to scatter them around the world like seeds without a hand to guide.

    Verse 4~The will of Jehovah God taking place meant so much to Nehemiah that when he heard that the work was not progressing he wept.

    Nehemiah 1:9
    If we confess our sin's GOD is ready to forgive, no matter our deeds.

    Janet, Nehemiah isn't the last book of the Old Testament chronologically, that would of course be Malachi. It is the last book to record the actual history of the nation of Israel. The following is a quote from Gill's introduction of the book: "it is the last of the historical books
    that was written, as is thought, and contains an history of the space of about twelve years"

    I'm looking for the book and verse were pray. O lord the great and awesome God who keep his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands. So I turn to lord god and pleaded with him in prayer and petition on behalf of another or other who desperately need god intervention.

    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.
  • Irene123
    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.
  • George Lay
    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
  • Ms. Gaddis
    Some of us have built our "wall" a little TOO good. Yes, we keep the world out, but in doing so, we have lost all compassion for the lost. We look at the lost as just another hostile, and even use their hostility as an excuse not to "tell every creature." What our world around us has become, is our own fault, for leaving the world on the other side of our wall. And now they are breaking it down.
  • Lose
    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
  • Janice
    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 is a great story of repenting, restoring and rebuilding. The people had a mind to work! Leadership! I love this story!!!
  • Daniel
    Comment*my favorable chapter one
  • Jsmoove 17
    The great and terrible God such statements of profound reverence and faith are all but forgotten in this generation where it seems man is control via technology, smarts, and strength. We so easily forget how great and how terrible our God really is. Let us guard this faith and press forward with the hope of the gospel.
  • Phidis
    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
  • Andy
    Nehemiah is a great intercessor. And we need such people in a country like Nigeria
  • James Ahrendt
    The power of prayer when dealing with men. How powerful is that. God want 's to give his children favor befor our leaders. Any with curupt leadership all around us. God is all powerful and sovereign over all. Nothing happen without going though his hands first. How great is our God savior. We as his children can worship Him from now and forever and ever. "WoW " We can stand on His word for eternity. His word never changes. As we go through true sanctificaion and become more Christ like. praise God
  • Dennis c moyer
    amen we are very lucky to have a forgiveing father and a son to die for us
  • Anthony
    verse 5 reminds us that God always keeps his covenants unlike us who make promises to God when we are in trouble but as soon as he delivers us, we forget all about our pledge to Him.
  • Olga Villarreal
    chap.1:9 where it states that even if jews are cast out into outer-most ends of heaven,the Lord will bring them back. It has been on my mind for a couple of days. Is it possible if they 're sending a non-return couple to Mars,maybe its not such an impossibility. I 've been pondering that.
  • Guerline Robuste
    Nehemiah as a characteristic of God that he recognized God for who he his,Nehemiah begin recognising the greatness and the grandeur of God.
  • Judy
    Nehemiah is a great example to us as Christian to bring our cases and those of our Nation before Elohim that He will heal our land.
  • Elizabeth Deitsch
    I think that this man just wanted people to do the right thing and follow the lords wishes for us all.
