While “Facing Opposition”, Ezra and Nehemiah still went ahead with their work. We too must
“Go, Preach My Gospel”, Hymn 378 and
Hymn 377, “Go Forth, Go Forth With Christ”.
The way to encourage the people building the temple was to send in two prophets:
Hymn 413, “God Has Spoken by His Prophets”
With the opposition, the people forgot about the power of God and should be singing
Hymn 88, “I Sing the Mighty Power of God”,
Hymn 90, “Eternal God, Whose Power Upholds” and now that we have the history of Jesus, we can add hymns like
Hymn 229, “All Hall The Power of Jesus’ Name”,
Hymn 294, “Power in the Blood” or even
Hymn 415, “Christ the Lord, All Power Possessing”.
In rebuilding the temple, ’God made provision to help the Israelites come into the presence of God with reverence’:
Hymn 36 “O Thou in Whose Presence”.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
