"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 f

"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

"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 Teac

"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 prot
