Back in the 70’s, during the student holidays one year, I just got really inspired from reading the story of Nehemiah. I had a sense that it was important, but for a later time.
Well skip forward to 2010, and I sense that now is that time… God has a new strategy for a new season. Just like the Ezra story was for a specific goal, and God prepared specific people and gifts and abilities. Then along comes the Nehemiah story with a different goal… God prepared different people and gifts and abilities to do a new thing.
God has prepared this season of rebuilding for this time in history.
God has prepared people for this season and they don’t look like the people that you would expect. Be prepared to be surprised. Be prepared to be shaken.
Right now JC is shaking his church! It needs to be shaken… seriously!
There’s a shaking and a building going on, all at the same time.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven:
…A time to break down, and a time to build up…
