~ Jesus Christ Is The Rebuilder of the Broken Walls of Human Life ~
The Bible is about Jesus Christ~“Jesus said to them, ‘How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christhave to suffer these things and then enter His glory?’ And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself” (Luke 24:25-27).
Jesus Christ as seen in the book of Nehemiah has been described as rebuilder of the broken walls,the governor of the Church, the restorer and protector, and perhaps most appropriately the rebuilder of the broken-down walls of human life.
The condition of the Israelites and their world in Nehemiah’s time did not change much during the 400 silent years before the coming of The Messiah at the beginning of the New Testament.They were not free and they continued to be ruled by Gentile nations.They continued to wait for their coming Messiah.
Comment~We have only touched the surface of Christ in Nehemiah.
The Apostle Paul told us the Scriptures present many shadows of things to come but the reality is found in Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:17).
