Everything Is Falling Apart In The World- Christian Are You Ready To
2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me;
as also the king's words that he had spoken unto me. And they said,
Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this
2:19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the
Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn,
and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye
rebel against the king?
2:20 Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he
will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but
ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.

see the current possibilities.

2:10 When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the
Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was
come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.
2:11 So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
2:12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither
told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem:
neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.
2:13 And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before
the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of
Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were
consumed with fire.
2:14 Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's
pool: but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.
2:15 Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall,
and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so
2:16 And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither
had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the
nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
2:17 Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how
Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire:
come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a

is the call, the individual secret from the lord, something your
called to do.
see this lesson in the N.T.
14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down
first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish
14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able
to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth
not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand
to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an
ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all
that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

the same thing.
often undertake one thing and another, both in our spiritual and
temporal life, without preparation; and for the want of this, failure
ensues. Before Dr. Nansen, the Norwegian, started on his Polar
expedition, he slept under his silk tent for the double purpose of
testing it and acclimatising himself. Other members of the expedition
slept in the open air covered with the wolf-skins they were taking
out with them. A very famous writer, in order to secure as good a
description of a thunderstorm as possible, took up his position
during six such storms on the top of a cathedral tower, getting
himself drenched to the skin each time. It is not only the doing of a
thing, but the preparation for doing it, which in many cases issues
in success. No time spent in preparation for what is worth doing is
this book we get a lot of information on leadership, building. This
book has always been one of my books for training leaders. You Man,
women of God, being trained up, bible leadership is a must if you
want to get done what the lord has called you to do.
leader; lets look at the leader, what should be in a leader to do and
finish a calling, project, ministry, thing.
the model worker
He works thoughtfully. Before he commences this tremendous task he
spends some time in deliberation. Who can tell the thoughts of
Nehemiah as he moved amidst the ruins of Jerusalem this night?
Jerusalem was the home of his fathers, the centre of his most
hallowed associations. Before we undertake a work we should gauge its
magnitude and become convinced of its practicability (Luk_14:28-30).
Men, from the impulse of the hour, put their hand to undertakings
which they have never given themselves time to understand, and for
which they are not fitted; and hence, when the excitement is over,
they abandon the work in disappointment, if not in disgust.
He works independently. “I arose in the night, I and some few men
with me, neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do
at Jerusalem.” It is not thus that we are wont to act in this age.
There are but few men who would take up any great work, and set about
it themselves, without seeking the sympathy and counsel of their
fellow-men. If we have some work which presses on us as a duty of
general importance, almost the first thing we do is to call our
friends together, get their sanction, and form a committee to aid us
in carrying it out. We, in these days, work by organisations. Our
individuality in work is scarcely seen or felt. We are the limbs of
societies, wheels in organisations. What we want is more
individualism in action, more of the independent man, and less of the
society. Two things will show the importance of this.
The opinions of others cannot determine our duty. Duty is between us
and God. It is something that is perfectly independent of men’s
The opinions of others may embarrass us in duty. Duty generally comes
to us in very legible writing, wants no interpreter, speaks to us in
a very distinct voice. Amid the din of human opinion there is danger
of its losing its voice. Let us, therefore, cultivate the habit of
acting independently; not proudly, not despising the opinions of
others, or refusing their co-operation, but working ever from the
force of our own convictions.
He worked influentially. The next chapter shows that, under his
influence, all classes, male and female, set to work in right
The people saw that he understood the matter. They recognised in him
at once a man who knew what he was about, a man of intellectual grasp
The people saw that he was thoroughly in earnest. What he said he
He worked heroically.
Look at the sacrifices he made.
Look at the enemies he encountered. He had, at least, three desperate
enemies (verse 19)—Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem. These men showed
By ridicule (verse 19, Neh_4:3).
By indignation (Neh_4:7).
The labor he effected. He finished the work in fifty-two days,
notwithstanding all the difficulties that seemed insurmountable. He
overcame the enemies who were malignant, he triumphed over all.( Note
Most scholars write the wall was done in 40 days)
He worked religiously. “Then I told them of the hand of my God
which was upon me,” etc. (verses 18-20).
His impulses to act he ascribed to God.
His rule of action he derived from Him (verse 18).
His sacrifices in the work he made for Him (Neh_5:15).
The spirit with which he performed his work was that of dependence
upon Him (Neh_4:9-12).

messenger and the servant of God. (Homilist.)
are you ready to be a true leader, as the word teaches, or are you
trying to do things , programs, events, and such?
day of doing Church as normal are over. WE must take a deep, fresh
breath, of the Holy lord word and follow his direction, some will be
dangerous, but 'heavy hangs the head that wares the crown'.
leadership, the lack of it, is a true crises in most Churches today.
I pray you are not such a one and are ready to do whatever the lord
tells you to do.
