Building your Spiritual Wall : Nehemiah

  1. 1. Building your Spiritual Wall https://www.facebook.com/Prisonbreak-Ministries- 104846544570489/
  2. 2. Background - Nehemiah • Nehemiah was part of the people(Jews) that was taken captive by the Babylonians when they conquered Judah. • He became the cup-bearer to the King (Artaxerxes). • He was responsible for the preparation and safety of everything the king drank. • It was a very responsible position and taken very seriously. • He became a trusted friend and advisor to the king despite being an “inherited captive Jew”
  3. 3. Why must the wall be rebuilt? • The city of Jerusalem was in ruins as they were destroyed by the Babylonians. • When Nehemiah enquired by Hanani about the surviving Jews who had escaped exile, he learned that the remnant there are in great trouble and reproach(express disappointment in their actions) AND that the walls of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates are destroyed – Neh 1:2-3. • Nehemiah immediately wept and mourned for days. He sought God’s face, repented on behalf of his forefathers, prayed, fasted, quoted scripture back to God – Neh 1: 4-11. • He heard about the ruins of the wall in the month of Kislev(December) and received favor from the King in the month of Nisan(March), he prayed for days…months! TIMING was important!
  4. 4. Focus on the Gates – Prophetic Foresight
  5. 5. Prophetic Foresight = 10 Gates • There were 10 gates of the wall. Each representing a significant for the believer. • The gate starts with the Sheep Gate, Neh 3:1 and also ends with a description of the Sheep Gate, Neh 3:32.
  6. 6. Gate 1 & 11 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 1. Sheep Gate Nehemiah 3:1&32 The very first gate mentioned and it is also the last mentioned gate in Nehem 3. It was called the sheep gate because this was the gate which the sheep and lambs used in the sacrifice were bought through. This is the realisation that Yeshua was the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. This gate speaks to us about the cross and the sacrifice that was made for our sins. It is the starting point of everything as well as the end = signifying Yeshua is the beginning and the end.
  7. 7. Gate 2 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 2. Fish Gate Nehemiah 3:3 The second gate mentioned. It was called the fish gate because the fisherman of Galilee would bring their catch in through this gate to be sold. This for us, speaks of evangelism as we have been called to be "fishers of men" (Matt 4:19). After we come to Christ - the first gate, this gate becomes the next progression in our journey to tell others of Yeshua's love for us.
  8. 8. Gate 3 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 3. Old Gate Nehemiah 3:6 Nehemiah is the only book in the bible where it is called the Old gate and it may have been one of the original gates made. This speaks of the old ways of truth, Jeremiah states 6:16" Thus says the Lord, Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths where the good way is and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls" The ancient days calls us back to His long established ways that do not change and remain the same yesterday, today and forever.
  9. 9. Gate 4 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 4. Valley Gate Nehemiah 3:16 Several valleys surround Jerusalem and this gate opened out to the valley of Hinnom. There is a long distance before you get the next gate from the Old Gate. This gate speaks to us of humbling and trials - the valley type experiences used by the Lord for our personal growth. It's not easy going through this gate but as believers we need to remember that nothing really grows in the natural on the mountain tops, but it definitely grows down in the valley. So this is obviously in the spiritual, the growth, the trials. Never easy or nice but it produces good fruit unto YHWH.
  10. 10. Gate 5 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 5. Dung (Refuse) Gate Nehemiah 3:14 All of Jerusalem's refuse and rubbish was taken out through this gate, down to the valley of Hinnom where it would be burned. Again quite a distance from the previous gate to this gate. This gate is where rubbish is removed and this is what happens in our own life. The Valley experiences are used by YHWH to clear away the rubbish so that our character will be pleasing unto YHWH, here we get refined by the fire, an come forth and produce fruit.
  11. 11. Gate 6 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 6. Fountain Gate Nehemiah 3:16 This gate is located near the pool of Siloah and was often used by the people for cleaning before proceeding to the temple. This gate is located close to the dung gate. In other words, after the valley type experiences where rubbish is removed out through the dung gate, true faith comes forth and the fountains begin to flow! As written in John 7:38"Whoever believes in me, streams of living water will flow from within him".
  12. 12. Gate 7 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 7. Water Gate Nehemiah 3:26 This gate led down to the Gihon Spring which was located adjacent to the Kidron Valley. This gate is a picture of the word of God and its effect in our life. Eph 5:26 "…..having washed her by the water of the word.." Psalm 119:9 states that it is only through God's word that we can be clean. The is no coincidence that this gate was located next to the fountain gate as the two goes together. The Holy Spirit is the one who makes the Word of God alive in us, cleansing us, encouraging us and gives direction in our life.
  13. 13. Gate 8 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 8. Horse Gate Nehemiah 3:28 This gate was close to the King's stables and the men of Jerusalem would ride their horse out of this gate for war. This gate speaks of warfare - spiritual warfare, as the horses where used in battle and became a symbol of war - Rev 19:11. Spiritual warfare is a requirement for every believer in Yeshua because we are all in a battle whether we know it or like it or not.
  14. 14. Gate 9 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 9. East Gate Nehemiah 3:29 This gate is located on the opposite side of Mount Olives. This is the most important gate!! This is the gate where Yeshua will return, Ezekiel 44:1-3…. The gate that looked toward the east, and it was shut. The Lord said to me, This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened and no one shall enter by it, for the Lord God of Israel has entered by it" The east gate opens and looks towards the Mount of olives and we know that Jesus will return to this mount, Zech 14:4. He will enter Jerusalem by the east gate. So this gate speaks to the return of Yeshua HaMasiach. As believers we need to live with this hope and to the longing of His return. A specific crown is given to those who do this, 2 Tim 4:8.
  15. 15. Gate 10 The Gate The Gate Significance The Personal Significance 10. Muster (Inspection) Gate Nehemiah 3:3 This word in Hebrew has a military connection and according to tradition it was at this gate that David would meet his troops to inspect them. This is the final gate and speaks to us of the examination of our lives by the Lord. This is indicated by Paul in 1 Cor 4:5. We should to daily introspection of our character, asking YHWH if we are pleasing unto Him.
  16. 16. Summary • How often do you and I do introspection or enquire like Nehemiah did? Enquire about your spiritual state/condition by the Lord, or Spiritual Mother or Spiritual Father or your Spiritual Leader? • Are we fisher of men for the Kingdom? • How often do we let go of the “old ways”? Do you re-evaluate your character, your walk, your behavior, you actions etc…. • How do you respond when facing trials, the valley period of your shaping so that the our “new wineskin” can receive the fresh, new things of God. • How often do you remove the “dung” in your life, the old habits etc… • We have to review all the gates so that Yeshua can pour out His Spirit in us (Water gate & Fountain gate). • How prepared are you for the End Time War?? • As Watchmen on the wall we need to review our lives constantly, in fact daily!
