" If a Fox Should Jump on it, it Would Break Their Stone Wall Down!" – Part 2

Nehemiah 4:15-23

15 And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that the thing had been told us, that God defeated their counsel. And we returned all of us to the walls, every man to his work. 16 And it came to pass from that day forward, that half of their young men did the work, and half were ready for to fight, with spears, and shields, and bows, and coats of mail, and the rulers were behind them in all the house of Judah. 17 Of them that built on the wall and that carried burdens, and that laded: with one of his hands he did the work, and with the other he held a sword. 18 For every one of the builders was girded with a sword about his reins. And they built, and sounded with a trumpet by me. 19 And I said to the nobles, and to the magistrates, and to the rest of the common people: The work is great and wide, and we are separated on the wall one far from another: 20 In what place so ever you shall hear the sound of the trumpet, run all thither unto us: our God will fight for us. 21 And let us do the work: and let one half of us hold our spears from the rising of the morning, till the stars appear. 22 At that time also I said to the people: Let everyone with his servant stay in the midst of Jerusalem, and let us take our turns in the night, and by day, to work. 23 Now I and my brethren, and my servants, and the watchmen that followed me, did not put off our clothes: only every man stripped himself when he was to be washed.

Strategies to Counter the Enemys Plans:

From the above Scriptural Passage, we learn how to deal with opposition to our progress, efforts, vision and mandate





Love and

Refuse to be bitter.

Don’t forget,

People are only instruments,

The real enemy is the devil.

You actually have to hate people first

Before they can destroy you

Because while you love them,

They cannot.

Do you know why?

Because it is never people

Who destroy us,

But our hate, bitterness, anger and unforgiveness

Towards those who

Abuse, criticise, oppose and ridicule us


People may hurt you,

Disappoint You,

Sabotage You,

Scandalise You,

Reject You

Even kill You!

But they cannot destroy you

As long as You Love them!


You have to hate people first

Before They can destroy You!

Hallelu Yah.


Go out there and love,



Knowing that love

Is the only weapon

Heaven has given You,



You know how love does that?

It begins by surprising them,

Then frustrates them,

Then Infuriates them

(And anger is a time bomb!)

Very soon

They lose their mind

And begin to make mistakes

Which expose them;



If you don’t believe me


Absalom, the son of David ( II Samuel 15-18)

Saul, the king ofIsrael(I Samuel 18-31)

Haman, Mordecai’s enemy (Book of Esther)

Pharaoh, Moses’ nemesis and evil pursuer (Exodus 3-14) and

Judas Iscariot, Jesus’ betrayer (Matthew 26, 27)

Hallelu Yah!
