Nehemiah, was famous for building a wall.
He was ordain by the LORD, and provisions made from the king Artaxerxes, to repair the wall in Jerusalem.
Nehemiah: was of the Tribe of Levi, and a Priest (Neh.10). He was there during Jeremiah, and Daniels time.
Nehemiah, with a very small group of men, had to identify who was of the Tribe of Judah; and who was of the Tribe of Rechabites(Kenites, Jer.35).
Rev.3:7 is in play: He "has the key of David" and knows who begot who. Rev. 3:9 "of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are ____." Nehemiah knew that it was the Tribe of Judah that went into captivity for seventy yrs., and the Rechabites that were "afraid, and hid out in Jerusalem."
This group of "bad figs" were now attempting to stop the re-building of the wall.
Much of the work, was done covertly; and with workers that were armed (Neh.4:13,18.).
Response to the wicked offer to help: "you have no portion, nor right, nor memorial in Jerusalem."
The wall was completed. Nehemiah separated the sheep from the goats. They called him names, and planned to kill him. We need another Nehemiah that's not afraid of being called and anti___, or death.
Walls are necessary: even Heaven has a wall (Great Gulf, Lk16).
