"Be Faithful To Obey Your Promise" from Nehemiah 10:1-39

2 points in this teaching ; in verses 1-29, the sign or agreement of the covenant and in verses 30-39, obligation of the covenant.

Be faithful to God when it comes to our relationship.
Be faithful to God when it comes doing business.
Be faithful to God when it comes supporting God's work.

Nowadays, who is your seal today? It is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is our down payment from the Lord in our salvation. As Christians we should be a role model to everyone.

Deuteronomy 28:1-14
Blessings for Obedience
1 If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God:
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
8 The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9 The LORD will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the LORD your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will fear you. 11 The LORD will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
12 The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

These are the commandments that they did not obey. Avoid un-equally yoked. In the 6-years they will work but to 7th year they will only harvest, they will rest like the Sabbath day and it is a year that they will rest. And God promised that when the 6th year will come, God will double their harvest. It simply means to us today, that when it comes to a Sabbath day (God's day) they should rest and take time in the Lord.

Malachi 3:10 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

1 Chronicles 29:14 14 “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.

They give tithes to the Lord. The temple before is the building but now the temple of the Holy Sprit is our body. Then God said take good care of your temple (our body).

"Praying Together Stays Together" from Nehemiah 9:1-38

If you have friend who continue to sin, what will you do?

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

In this chapter, it all talks about old testament. In the Pentateuch books, was the first sin of man from Adam. Then, the rainbow reminded Noah of His promise that He will not going to flood the Earth again. Then in Abraham have two sons, Ismael and Isaac. And then Joseph became the priest in Egypt.

Genesis means beginning, Exodus means exit. Leviticus is walk in instruction. Numbers is the walk of faithfulness. Deuteronomy is the second land.

From verse 1-4, brokenness of heart; 5-32, the goodness of God; and 33-38. We Christians should be separated from this world. Some Israelite's are reading God's word, while some worshiping God.

Abraham means father of exalted. Egypt was a symbol of sin. God said if your hungry then ask and you will receive. Sometimes they call the Lord but also sometimes not.

They remember their forefathers what they did in doing sin against God. We are slaves doing sin but we are free if we change our lives and turn to God.

Once Jesus Christ is in your life, you already have all you want. We all learn the up's and downs of Israelite's to the Lord.

"Learn and Obey" from Nehemiah 8:1-18

Nehemiah 8:8, is a compound memory verse in the Bible.

We all know that junk foods are not good for the body. This is the same when you're with the worldly things, wanting the desire it, these are comparable to eating junk foods. And it will be hard for us to obey God's word because the worldly things gets in the way. It is more relevant that we should be more interested in God's word.

The two main points in this chapter are; in verse 1-12, we should learn God's word attentively.
And, in verse 13-18, we should apply what we learn and want to hear. Now, what we need to hear are the five books, or Pentateuch - the Torah.

We need to desire to hear God's word and this is the commandment of God. "Attentively" means carefully you need to be interested. We must read our Bible and listen attentively.

Revelation 2:29 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

These people are supporting Nehemiah in verse 4. One of the Bible Teachers says; No one ever graduates studying the Bible, until you will see the author face to face.

2 Peter 1:12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.

Praise in Hebrew word means bharak, which means a sacrifice of praise. Disciple means learner. Jesus is an expert expounding word of God. This is the good thing when we serve the Lord, we may not have the physical blessing but the joy of the Lord will always remain in us.

Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.

The fool or stupid usually don't want correction especially coming from God. Booths here is a cottage.

Deuteronomy 16:13-16 13 Celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. 14 Be joyful at your festival—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. 15 For seven days celebrate the festival to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.
16 Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks and the Festival of Tabernacles. No one should appear before the LORD empty-handed:

When we celebrate the goodness of God, it will bring joy to you.

Leviticus 23:36 For seven days present food offerings to the LORD, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present a food offering to the LORD. It is the closing special assembly; do no regular work.

What makes a different, it doesn't matter how much you read Bible but if you dont apply it, it's unworthy. No word, no food. Put first your spirit before your physically.

"Live with Integrity" from Nehemiah 7:1-73

Integrity means being honest with God and do "what you have said to do". We have to live with Integrity. In verse 1-38, every individual must live in truth. In verse 39-73, live in impurity. One of the marks of an individual who lives in truth, when he or she continue the work. In our Christian walk in the Lord, we must also have perseverance.

Citadel means fortress. Key verse in this chapter is in verse 2, "..because he was a man of integrity and feared God more than most men do." Change is an optional and we should allow ourselves to live with integrity.

1 Corinthians 4:2 Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.

2 Timothy 2:2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

We need to follow the example of Job, Moses and Nehemiah. Integrity really lacks in a Christian life. Nehemiah instructed the people to have guards, to protect them from enemy. We must live on awareness with integrity.

Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

How do you know if God speaking to you? Through his word, it might also be in the people around you or in dreams. He gives knowledge and strength. Whatever is you work, you must live with integrity.

Before if the priest go to the holly of hollies and if a sinful man goes in there he will die. In the sight of God, we are transparent. Transparent means sincere without wax. Fear means we honor God.

We also need to be sanctified. Sanctification means is an on going work of the Holy Spirit. We have to give for the work of God. Notice in verse 70, not most of all are contributing for the Lord. When you don't give tithes for the Lord, you are like a thief. Read it in Malachi 3, being steward for God's money.

Be reminded to live with truth and integrity. The key is to revive our hearts and mind.
