    Nehemiah were courageous to take the stand that he did, because he had faith, we can do the same as God people if we keep the faith, God fought his battle ,and he will fight our.

    Verse 2~Worship should take place with all in the family. Both the men and the women were mentioned here and this would promote unity in the family.
  • Vickie Patterson
    Have blessed day love you
  • Irene123
    V.9 - " ... and all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law." There are a very few that will understand what I am going to say. At every church service - I weep; especially during the song/worship service, and many times during the Pastor's message. It's the sweet spirit that is there , touching everyone, but some don't respond as I do. Jesus is all there is to me.

    Much of God's Word is integrity and we have to learn that
  • Irene123
    V. 5 - " ..... and all the people stood up." And Jesus stood to read from Esais (Isaiah) in Luke 4. To stand at the reading of God's Word, to give Him respect, honor and glory; the least we can do (and so much more!!!) for what He did for us. He loves to be honored and glorified by His people, because it's what He has taught them - because He loves them; just like any father.

    Never, realized so many miracles performed by God to the rebuilding of the wall at Jerusalem. Even starting with the king whom Nehemiah left to fulfill Gods work to build the wall with the materials needed.

    Sophia Lewis, look at Numbers 29:35. I think that which you are referring to is the feast of tabernacles.

    Just preached about Nehemiah 8:10. The people had every reason to burst into tears because of their history of sin and punishment, which was touched by the reading of the books of Moses. But Gods message at that point is: rejoice! and have a feast devoted to me, for the joy in the Lord is your shelter. because the Lord is merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth (Exodus 34:6). So He proved to us in Jesus Christ. Rejoice in the Lord always!

    This comment is to Andi Meekcold. Jesus came to bring life to all who will believe in His death, burial, and resurrection. He took your sins upon himself, Andi, so you would not have to go to hell. He is our sacrifice for sin. We receive the atonement through obedience to Acts 2:37,38. Repent(ask forgiveness for all wrongdoing and turn from evil), be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, and the Lord will fill you with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. He died for you, Andi. Find an Apostolic Holiness or United Pentecostal Church and attend to hear what you must do to be saved. God bless you.
  • Juan ruiz for verse 10
    Very encouraging an inspiring verse has made mefeel relief to feel the presence of our lord next to me
  • Andi Meekcold
    Helps me understand the tradition of Jesus's death and blood
  • Ellen
    I wonder why the Decalogue is never read at our major yearly convocations, i.e. Camp Meeting. I think it help new believers understand what we believe and remind those who have forgotten, the standard we are called to.
  • Housty for verse 2
    Would i be anywhere near the mark to think that the first public reading of scripture was a civic even? The principal of separation of state and the christian church could be seen as under threat and many people wonder what that could mean?
