Is the Book of Nehemiah a type of prophecy, or reflection of what the United States are going through? The similarities are striking; literally and figuratively! The building of the wall, and the repairing of the gates could be very comparable. The anger of outsiders watching, and jeering, to the point of needing to arm ourselves, as we continue to make way, while trying to bring back the glory of what we once were before greed, and immorality overtook our government. Even the picture of our own countrymen working against us, trying to discourage us and stop the work of rebuilding. This is happening in our country, as well as what happened in Nehemiah’s time. The work must resume! We must not allow those who intend to tear our country apart, to gain control of our government again. This fight is not over, we must continue to work with a sword in one hand, ready for battle if needed. Do not get discouraged, our God is fighting for us, and we will prevail!
And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.” When our enemies heard that it was known to us and that God had frustrated their plan, we all returned to the wall, each to his work. Nehemiah 4:14-15
