REBUILDING THE WALLS
Habakkuk 2:2, Heb. 10:37-38, Heb. 2:3,4
Write the Vision and make it Plain. We have wrote the Vision Plainly.
- We must pray, persevere, sacrifice (like Nehemiah did).
- When the wall is built it will bring about national repentance (bring repentance to the church).
- Rebuilding the walls in our lives, gives power, protection, and beauty to our lives that we belong to God.
- God has a vision for us to rebuild the walls in our lives, so we can rebuild the walls in other peoples lives through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
- These will help us to be united so we can be trained to do this work for God, to Him be the glory.
- To then recognize the deep need in this world, as well as the church world, and then God gives the vision and then the desire to help others be rebuilt.
- When we begin this work, we must recognize problems immediately and start to pray, and then act upon the problem.
- Prayer is God’s mighty force in solving problems, prayer and action go hand-in-hand.
- Through prayer, God guides our preparation, teamwork, and diligent efforts to carry out his will for the work of this ministry.
- As the leader of the work, God has made me spiritually ready to carry out the plan, thought, teamwork, and problem solving faith to get the work done. Through the vision, God will accomplish all he has set out to do through the leader – you for his work in this ministry, through us on this earth to the end of the age.
- God’s calling me to head this work and it is not to gain recognition, or holding a position, or being a boss. It requires me to seek God’s face and get His plan, and to get the grace needed for the work. That is before me and you, and the courage to do the work, even when things seem like they are not working out in this natural life, and the perseverance to keep on going when everyone thinks you have lost it.
- We need to listen to the voice of the Lord to lead us in the right direction for our own life, so we can get the wisdom from God to keep our lives in order that we might be able to stand in our rightful place of leadership in the church.
- We know that ever since this work began we have faced scorn, slander, and threats from the enemy as well as fear and conflict from the people in the church. Even though it was hard, I (we) the church stood our ground because God wants us to complete the work of the ministry or vision.
- We have had difficult times and we have been discouraged, but we have come through to recognize that there are no triumphs without troubles.
- When there are problems, I as the leader, must face them squarely in the eye and press on to complete the vision God has given us.
- The work on the rebuilding of the wall is to rebuild the lives God’s people spiritually and to bring them to repentance.
- When the work of the Lord is instructed byt the leader, the people can listen and they can recognize the sin in their lives, to admit it, repent, remove it, turn back to God, and the rebuilding begins.
- Recognizing and admitting sin is not enough. If we want revival, we must repent, let God remove it, change our lives, be holy as the Lord is Holy. He said, “Walk in His ways with a new nature, walk in power and authority of His word, take authority over your kingdom, defeat your enemies”, then revival will come to the earth.
- God doesn’t want half-hearted measures. We need to ask God in the name of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit to come and move into the center of everything that I (we) do, not just this part or that part, but everything we do or have. Even our money and how we spend it.
- God wants to rebuild the wall, re-unite the church, to remove their shame, bring God’s glory, and to restore the reality of God’s presence (glory) into the church, again, through the power of the Holy Spirit in these last days that we live.
- Spiritual awakening often begins with one person’s vision.
- God wants to supernaturally awaken the church by a supernatural move of the power of the Holy Spirit greater than the Book of Acts.
- When we have sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the feeling that everyone is wrong except your little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other kinds of sin….if we remain un-repaired, it leaves us, God’s people, defenseless and vulnerable to Satan and the demonic forces that he rules. Gal. 5:19, NLT.
