Hi Everybody

Remember me, O my God, for  good.

Nehemiah 13:31

Nehemiah was placed by God in  authority.

The burden of  responsibility.

We all have an area of  responsibility

however small and insignificant it  may seem to be.

Therefore let us seek to glorify  God

in all things great and  small.

God Bless  and Go You Bless,

Hi Everybody

"You are a  God

ready to  forgive,

gracious and  merciful,

slow to anger

and abounding in steadfast  love."

Nehemiah 9:17

The LORD is  merciful and gracious,

Slow to anger and abounding in  mercy.

He will not always strive with  us,

Nor will He keep His anger  forever.

He has not dealt with us according  to our sins,

Nor punished us according to our  iniquities.

For as the heavens are high above  the earth,

So great is His mercy toward those  who fear Him.

As far as the east is from the  west,

So far has He removed our  transgressions from us.

As a father pities his  children,

So the LORD pities those who fear Him.

For he knows our  frame,

He remembers that we are  dust.

David speaking in Psalm  103:8-14

Hi Everybody

Ezra opened the  book

in the sight of all the  people,

...

and as he opened it all the  people stood.

And in not a few  churches

people stand for the reading of the  Gospel.

Hi Everybody

All the assembly  said

"Amen"

and praised the  LORD.

Nehemiah 5:13

They were honouring the  Lord.

Rebuilding the ruined walls of  Jerusalem.

There was considerable financial  distress among them.

Brethren were needing to take out  loans from fellow brethren who were charging them interest!

Something expressly forbidden in  the Law.

And neither should we charge our  fellow Christians interest.

No wonder everyone said  'Amen'

when Nehemiah made a stand against  this practice.

Forgive us our trespasses  (debts)

As we forgive those who trespass  (are in debt to ) us. 

see Jesus speaking in Matthew 6:12 and Luke  11:4

Hi Everybody

That we might humble  ourselves

...

that we might seek from  Him

a safe journey  for 

ourselves, our children, and all  our goods.

Ezra 8:21

Ezra and those returning to the  Promised Land

thought soberly and  righteously

to cover this undertaking for  God

with prayer and  fasting.

If we are serious in our  commitment

we will do likewise.

God Bless  and Go You Bless,

Hi Everybody

Ezra had set his heart to  study

the Law of the LORD,

and to do it and to teach His  statutes.

Ezra 7:10

Below is a link for  a

Sequential Bible Reading  Guide.

It sets out the events of the  Bible

as they happened, in chronological  order;

not always following the set  chapters in the Bible.

Many shall run to and  fro,

and knowledge shall  increase."
