Nehemiah was an organizer when they were building the wall.
vs. 10 -10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Why is the JOY of the Lord our strength? With all the things coming against us today....we need joy!
They all gathered together as ONE MAN in Nehemiah 8:1.
133 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
We are together in the unity of the spirit.
Proverbs 1:21, Ruth 4:11, Deut 16:18, 2 Chron 18:9, Ex 14:1, 15:21
God's word purifies, destroys evil and cleans hearts.
