TEXT: NEHEMIAH 4:1-21
But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews.
2 And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?
3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.
4 Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity:
5 And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.
6 So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.
7 But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,
8 And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.
9 Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.
10 And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.
11 And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease.
12 And it came to pass, that when the Jews which dwelt by them came, they said unto us ten times, From all places whence ye shall return unto us they will be upon you.
13 Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
14 And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.
15 And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.
16 And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah.
17 They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.
18 For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.
19 And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far from another.
20 In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us.
21 So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared.
Key Verse: “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word and hast not denied my name” Revelation 3:8.
Holiness Revival Movement is in the plan of God for such a time as this. We believe that this is the final revival ushering the church unto the coming of the Lord in the rapture. It is considered as the Ark of Noah and provides room to preserve souls of men from eternal destruction coming suddenly upon the world. Satan dreads this movement and raises great battles against it.
However, we are more than conquerors through Jesus the captain of Holiness Revival Movement. The Lord Jesus has raised up this Movement after pure faith in Him and in His word of truth, holiness and righteousness. He has given the key of end time revival in the church and in the world to HOREMOW. He has set before us an open door and is working among us as the leader of the end time revival.
Great conversions are taking place in various places and those blind to scriptural truths testify of spiritual sight into scriptural truths. Both the ignorant and the religious submit to the Lordship of Jesus. The believers submit to the ministry of the word and are cleansed, sanctified and made holy. Restitutions are carried out and brotherly love is promoted.
Nations and kingdoms are being penetrated with the gospel light, life and power. God's interest is not in the quantity of Christians in the world, but their quality, not the number of members in a church, but their names in the book of life; it is not the amount of service rendered, but the fruit that qualifies for eternal life.
He is making appearances to people in the churches; He is taking people live to heaven and to hell and giving them messages to the church. He is raising up true gospel preachers and ministries to communicate His word to the churches. “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word and hast not denied my name” Revelation 3:8. There is great harvest in heaven day to day.
Thought for the day: Jesus Christ is the owner of this Movement.
Song for the day: Onward Christian soldiers matching as to war…
Bible Reading for the day: 1 Samuel 19-21; Luke 15:11-32
