Vital Information

The Military In The National Entity
The protection of a national entity. A national entity is protected in 
two ways: (1) interior protection, which is objectivity in law and good
law enforcement; (2) exterior protection, which is the military estadlishment.
The principle of the military establishment goes back to the days of Abraham
when, with a small but well-trained army, he defeated the superior forces of 
Chedorlaomer  (Gen.14).
"I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." 

                                                                         John 8:12

Father, what You have to say to us is vital. Help us to listen; help us to hear.

Protect and Serve

Intelligent Demobilization
And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my 
servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held 
both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; 
and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah (Neh. 4:16).
They (the demobilized troops) which builded on the wall,
and they that bear burdens (the rock carries), with those that 
laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work,
and with the other group (literally) held a weapon (Neh.4:17).

We could sure learn a lesson from  the Bible about national 
security. Of course for maybe 200 years we did.
"The Lord shall open unto thee His good treasure."
Deuteronomy 28:12

O Lord, let my life reflect the joy You have put into my heart,
that Your name may be glorified.

Be Prepared

Military Preparation Prevents Wars

And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known
unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we 
returned all of us to the wall,every one unto his work (Neh. 4:15.)

The crisis passed without a battle. Why? Because they were ready
to fight! Being prepared to fight is the greatest deterrent to war.
But the Jews did learn from Bible doctrine and from their own
God the Holy Spirit is telling us something in verse 15: there is a 
relationship between spiritual life and military preparation.

"Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven."
Luke 6:37

Heavenly Father, since I want to be forgiven, help me be forgiving.
In Christ name I pray

Monday, December 28, 2015


"Remember the Lord " in time of war, and remember the Lord of 
Host is "great and terrible." The word 'terrible" means "a mighty 
warrior." Remember that the Lord is a mighty  Warrior! Nehemiah
was telling them to use the faith-rest technique, in view of divine
essence! Remember 1 Samuel 17:47, "The battle is the Lord's" ;
remember  2 Chronicles 20:15, "Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be
not afraid, nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the
battle is not yours, but God's". You have Bible doctrine---use it!
"Remember the Lord, who is a great and a mighty Warrior."

" I am the door : by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved
 and shall go in and out, and find pasture"

Human Viewpoint

Civilian Preparation
Look again at the last phrase of verse 13: "with their swords, with
their spears, and with their bows." They had weapons, and they knew
how to use them. They had the means to protect their country and their
loved ones.

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and
to the rest of the people, Be ye not afraid of them: remember the Lord,
which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your
daughters, your wives, and your houses (Neh.4:14).

He wanted them to think divine viewpoint. So he encouraged them:
"Be ye not afraid!" Fear is a mental attitude sin; it is human viewpoint.
"Fear not" get the divine perspective!

"My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect
in weakness."  ( 2 Corinthians 12:9)

God help me to be aware of my limitations and to be willing and ready
to ask for Your help.

Nehemiah Took Charge

The enemy stated two of their objectives; "Slay them, and cause the 
work to cease". These four armies knew the value of the military and
military defenses; therefore, they wanted to make sure that these defenses
were never established. This should tell you something about the Jew of 
the ancient world: like his counterpart in modern Israel he was courageous,
he was a great soldier; he was a great fighter!

And it came to pass, that when the Jews which dwelt by them came, they
said unto us ten times, From all places whence ye shall return unto us they
will be upon you (Neh. 4:12). 
Therefore set I the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places,
I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and 
their bows (Neh. 4:13). 
This verse demonstrates  that Nehemiah understood strategy and tactics.
"Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee,
and thou shalt glorify Me.
Psalm 50:15

Father, give me the wisdom You have promised to those who seek You.

A Surprise Attack

And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see
(conspiracy), till we come in the midst among them, and slay
them, and cause the work to cease (Neh. 4:11).
Who were their adversaries? They were the Samaritans, the
Arabs, the Philistines and the Ammonites. Four armies had 
converged on Jerusalem, and they had already formed an 
alliance and made their plans. What  were their plans? Surprise
attack! A Pearl Harbor type of attack. The enemy was saying.
"They will never know what hit them; we have the advantage
of surprise."  But the advantage of surprise was offset by the
fact the Jewish army was a well-trained, well- organized, well-
functioning army, ready for battle.
 "Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you."
1 Peter 5:7
O Lord, help me understand the reasons for Your chastening.

We Have Problems

Internal And External Problems
And Judah said (these are the Jews), The strength of the bearers
of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are
not able to build the wall (Neh. 4:10).

"The word "decayed" in the Hebrew indicates growing weak.
There was so much rubble to remove that they were not able
to move on to the actual construction of the walls! So much
for the internal problem; next to the external.

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed."

Spiritual Preparation First

National Response

Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a 
watch against them day and night, because of them  (Neh.4:9).

When the Jews came back to the land, they did two things : first
of all, they restored the function of the priesthood, as indicated
in Zechariah (the spiritual emphasis); and second, as
in Nehemiah, they put an army together immediately (the 
nationalistic emphasis). That is why "nevertheless" is at the 
beginning of verse 9; for on the other side of "nevertheless" are
the two areas in which a nation must always maintain preparedness,
The first is spiritual preparation.and the second is military preparation'
Spiritual preparation must always come first.

"For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and 
plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Him."
Psalm 86:5

God, thank You for loving me for myself and dying that
I might live. Teach me to feel that kind of love for others
as well as myself.

Never Ending Even Up To This Day.

"And all of them conspired together to join forces to come
to fight against Jerusalem to do harm unto it"
This  clearly states their objectives, which were hostility, tyranny,
enslavement, neutralization, exploitation--everything that would
remove freedom from the Jews!
Neh. 4:8

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord; and He shall sustain thee:
He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."
Psalm 55:22

Our trust is in Thee, O God. Let us never give in to discouragement.
In Christ name I pray

Saturday, December 19, 2015


3 Enemy Activity
"Neh. 4:8)  "All of them" is the subject of this sentence, so it should read
"And all of them conspired together---" Here is the principle: conspiracy
means antagonism; conspiracy means murder; conspiracy means to neutralize,
to  enslave, to practice tyranny. They all had the same objective: never permit
the Jews to get on their feet militarily! The walls of Jerusalem meant military
stability in Jerusalem. No walls--no defense!
There are several conspiracies against the United States of America today.
That verse demonstrates the necessity of national defense! It also reveals 
the fact that our enemies will not like it! But since when!!! do we operate 
on the basis of whether or not our enemies like it? 
"He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God,
and he shall be My son."

Emotional Revolt

2 Enemy Activity
The four groups had heard rumors: the Jews come back from Babylon and
were beginning construction on the walls of Jerusalem; the breaches in the 
wall were being filled in! What was their reaction to this? "Then they were
very worth." There are several words in the Hebrew language for "anger",
 but this is the strongest. Their anger was intense and continual.

The hostile reaction to the reconstruction of the defense system in 
Jerusalem in Nehemiah's day was due to a perpetual mental attitude
sin complex which included an emotional revolt in the soul of the enemy.

And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem,
and to hinder it (Neh.4:8).

"He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will 
not slumber."   Psalm 121:3
Heavenly Father, remind me that You are always ready to help us
 through life, no matter how difficult the task may seem.

Stop the Breaches

Enemy Activity
We pick up the passage where the Jews encounter opposition
to the rebuilding of the walls.
But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the
Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that 
the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began
to be stopped, then they were very wroth (Neh. 4:7).

Four enemies of Jerusalem are mentioned: Sanballat, who is the 
leader of the Samaritans, enemies of Judah to the north; Tobiah and
the Arabians,enemies to the east; the Ammonites, enemies to the northeast;
and the Ashdodites, the surviving Philistines at this time in history, enemies
to the south.

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
Matthew 5:9

Dear Lord, help me today and every day to be a peacemaker for those around
me. Help me to do good, to seek peace and pursue it.

The Walls Are Broken---Reconstruct Them

3 Isagogical Background
After the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C., the walls had been broken
down along with the palaces and the Temple. The people who had
returned after the seventy years of captivity were the children or the
grandchildren of those young people of Jeremiah's day who went into 
slavery to Babylon. These Jews had come back to the land to reconstruct
the walls.
In that day it was imperative that every major city have a defense
system. The book of Nehemiah records the events surrounding the
reconstruction of a new military defense system for Jerusalem, while
the book of Ezra records the rebuilding of the Temple. The first book
emphasizes the import of military life in a national entity; the latter, the
importance of spiritual life.

"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might 
He increaseth strength."

They Ignored The Glory Of God

2- Isagogical Background
The failures of these Jews, from the standpoint of spiritual,economic,
military, and social life, will comprise the background for our study.
They ignored the principles of freedom by which a national entity
functions to the glory of God. Finally in 586 B.C. the Southern Kingdom
was conquered by the armies of Nebuchadnezzar and taken into captivity
by the Chaldeans.
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away."

Isagogical Background

During the time of Nehemiah, some of the Jews of Judah
had just returned from the "fifth cycle of discipline" ( Lev.
26:1-30) of the Babylonian captivity. Because of a revolt 
against divine authority, the nation Israel had been split into
two entities. The Northern Kingdom (the ten tribes) called 
"Israel" or Ephraim," had its capital at Samaria, and the Southern
Kingdom (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin) called "Judah", had
its capital at Jerusalem. In 721 B.C. the Northern Kingdom, apostate
and degenerate, had gone into the fifth cycle of discipline under 
military conquest by Assyria to warn Judah of impending calamity
if she continued in the same idolatrous practices of her sister to the north.

God's Viewpoint

Nationalism was set up by God as a means of perpetuating freedom. 
This  means that internationalism, the United Nations and Communism
 are all anti-God, anti-Bible and antinationalism. The national entity must
be preserved so that freedom in all other areas can be maintained.
Nehemiah describes God's viewpoint concerning the nation that will
survive militarily by God's plan; and we will suffer the consequeces
if we do not make some changes quickly. 
"All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

For Stability In A Nation

The family concept is right man and right woman functioning
in marriage and training children. The authority in the family is 
invested in the parents. When a maximum number of children
reject the  authority of their parents, then a situation develops such
as we have  in  our country today.  We have youngsters on dope --a
rejection of authority; rioting in the schools and colleges--a rejection 
of authority; criminals on the increase. It starts in the family.
That is why we have the command, "Honor thy father and thy mother
that thy days may be long upon the land...(Ex.20:12)."
This is not only for the individual, but is also a national scale, for
stability in a nation.

"This is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life."
1 John 2:25

Dear father, teach me to give priority to the eternal values which

God's Design

God has designed one man for one woman--the "right man--right women 
concept. The opportunity to fine the right one and to enjoy this wonderful
relationship requires freedom of volition. Where a maximum number of
people in a national entity reject the right man--right woman principle, as
well as its proper framework --Divine Institution #2--degeneracy sets in and
that nation begins to decline. 
(Right Man-- Right Woman; Adam's Rib)
 "Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry and He shall say,

Free people have the liberty to make free-will decisions.
Of course, you cannot exercise your volition if you are a
slave; you must be free before your volition can function.
However, if you operate under divine principles, you make
decisions which perpetuate your freedom, and your volition.

Divine Institutions
God has set up certain divine laws for maintenance and
protection of human freedoms. He has instituted certain 
principles which must be obeyed if the human race is to
survive. For instance, we have the Ten Commandments, 
the "Magna Carta" of human freedom. Although these Ten
Commandments are not the Christian way of life, they do
provide principles of freedom for the protection of individuals
within a national entity. The Ten Commandments guarantees
the freedom of any nation operating under these principles.
We  also have the four divine institutions set up by God for
the perpetuation of the human race.

Learning a Lesson

Thus We See
that the believer's orientation to God's timetable is vitally necessary

you will always be vulnerable to the false teachings which arise from
taking Scriptures out of context!

Perfect Environment

During The Millennium
The intensified part of the angelic conflict will be over. 
"Operation Footstool" (the defeat of Satan and the fallen
angels), as a part of the angelic conflict, has been completed
(Heb.1:13). Perfect environment on the earth will be possible
because there will be no angelic interference from Satan and
his demons.

3. Church Age

In the Age of the  Church, angels, for the first time in history, 
are the guardian-servants of believers and also learn from them
(1 Cor. 4:9; 1 Tim. 5:21; 1 Pet. 1:12).
All believers are in full-time Christian service as ambassadors
for Jesus Christ. Since Christ is in heaven, we are His representatives
here on earth. The emphasis is on the fact that by means of the Church,
angels are watching us and learning every facet of God's Plan. This  caught
Satan completely off guard.

"In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."

Kept "Under Wraps"

2. Church Age
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who
created all things by Jesus Christ. To the intent that now unto the 
principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by 
the church the manifold wisdom of God (Eph. 3: 9, 10).
What was the purpose of keeping Church Age doctrine a mystery?
We must understand that "principalities and powers in heavenly places"
refer to the angelic creation. Although all Dispensations are related to the
angelic conflict, the Church was kept "under wraps" before it became a 
reality as a protection against Satanic attack. 

"Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me:

Good News

Church Age
Our first knowledge of the doctrines of the Church is stated in
John, Chapters 14 through 17, when  Christ gave this information 
prophetically. Now "good news" or the Gospel itself is not a mystery:
the Gospel has always been clearly revealed and understood. Every
reference to the "mystery" is a declaration of Church doctrine on a 
confidential basis for believers in this Dispensation (Rom.16:25, 26;
1 Cor. 15:51; Eph.1:9; 5:32; Col. 1:25, 26; 2:2; 1 Tim.3:16; Rev,1:20).

Christ The Foundation

The Old Testament
Writers from Genesis to Malachi did not know about the Church Age,
as the Church is never mentioned in the Old Testament. The only two
references in the Gospels are Matthew 18:17, where instructions involve
an  assembly of believers, and in Matthew 16:18, where Christ  prophesied
the future establishment of the Church, with Himself as the foundation.
Peter verifies this in 1 Peter 2:4-9, thereby disqualifying any future claims
that he founded the Church or was the first Pope! 

"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions

The Mystery

Time orientation demands that believers orient to the Dispensation
in which they live. In Ephesians, Chapter 3, Paul explains why we
must understand this portion of God's revelation.

If ye have heard of the dispensation of the  grace of God which is
given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto
me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye
read, YE MAY UNDERSTAND my  knowledge in the mystery
of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons 
of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by
the Spirit (Eph. 3:2-5).

Plant Life Will Abound

9 Radical Changes in Nature
First  of all, mankind will be loosened from the bonage of sin
(Rom. 8:19-22). Secondly, since sin had an adverse effect on 
nature (Gen. 3:17, 18), animals will lose their ferocity, as per 
Isaiah 11:6-8 and 65:25. Thirdly, plant life will abound; so for
those who like flowers, there is nothing like the Millennium

6 Universal Peace-3
Then if war does occur, it will hopefully be of short duration.
Our military establishment has been ridiculed and undermined
to a great extent; Actually, the only thing that keeps us alive is
the grace of God. 
We would not be here at all if it were not for (a) believers who 
are taking in Bible doctrine and witnessing; (b) missionaries
who know the Lord and are going out with the Gospel; and (c)
the fact that our nation as a whole is Not anti-Semitic (Gen.12:3).

Hot And Cold Wars

6. Universal Peace: 2

And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars : see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation 
shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall
be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

This means both hot wars and cold wars! So today, if people really believe
the Bible, there is just one thing for a nation to do: prepare for war!

neither shall they learn war any more (Isa. 2:4).
Only then will there be no need for strong national military forces;

Perfect Government

5. True Internationalism
The reign of Jesus Christ on earth will mean a universal rule of the
world, but nations will still exist. At that point, there will finally
be perfect world government (Psa.72; Isa. 11:1-5; Zech. 14:9).

"The Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth
covenant and mercy with them that love Him."
Deuteronomy 7:9

Lord, so bine our hearts to thee that people will see You
and Your church in their beauty.

Break the Cycle

3. Great Spirituality
There will be a maximum number of believers filled with 
the Holy Spirit, and ecstatics will be bone fide during this 
period (Joel 2:28,29).

4. Israel Restored
Israel will be regathered universally as a nation under God.
Their right to the Land today doesn't mean a thing------
except that their right to the Land will be challenged until 
Christ  returns! God promised that He  would restore them. 
When Christ returns to the earth, He will regather Israel
(Isa. 35:3-10; Ezek. 20:34). Only  Jesus Christ can break 
the fifth cycle of discipline.

"The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms."
Deuteronomy 33:27

Dear Lord, help us to give up our fears, and anxieties and give ourselves
fully to you.

There are twelve general characteristics of the 
Age of Christ
1. Perfect environment
for one thousand years there will be perfect conditions on the earth.
(Isa. 11:1-9)

2.  No religion
In order to have perfect environment, religion must be removed from 
the world. Satan is the father of religion (John 8:44); and since he will
be imprisoned for one thousand years (Rev.20:1-3), his ace trump---
religion-- goes with him! There will be no more cults with their
 "screwballs" knocking at your door!

"He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
Matthew 24:13
God, give me a faith that does not waver.

The Justice Of God

The Last Judgment
A final judgment of all unbelievers following the destruction of earth. 
Jesus Christ will be the Judge, and the issue will be: do you stand on
your own works or the works of Christ? Those who have rejected the
judgment of their sins at the Cross must accept the justice of God at
the Great White Throne (Rev. 20: 11-15).

"As I was with Moses, so I will be with thee."
Joshua 3:7

Dear Lord, please remove all doubt from my mind and help
me to have faith in Your promises.

It Will Occur

Destruction of the Universe

This will occur as recorded in 2 Peter 3:7-13,
when the earth, as we know it , will no longer exist.

"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,
and He shall lift you up."
James 4:10

Lord, help me to be honest and humble enough to acknowledge
my need of moral and spiritual help from others as well as Your
divine help.

The Only Answer

The Second Advent of Satan
This takes place at the end of the one thousand years. "He Satan must be loosed a little season'
(Rev.20:3). Satan persuades the unbelievers of the Millennium to rebel against perfect
environment and the reign of Jesus Christ and leads the revolt against God. This demonstrates
that perfect environment (or even good or better environment) is not the solution to man's
 problems. The principle that improving environment solves man's problems is one of the basic
tenets of psychology and psychiatry. Socialism even goes so far as to say: ("We will improve
your environment and you will be happy." But a relationship with the Person of Jesus Christ
is the only answer! 

"Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee."
Psalm 50:15

Father, I want to live close enough to know that when I call, you will answer.

Some Will Be Negative

So the Millennial civilization starts  with  believers only. However,
in the course of the repopulation of  the Millennial earth, because
people still possess an old sin nature, many will become  negative
and eventually reject Christ as Savior.
 "If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed."
John 8:31

Lord, May our love for You increase. May our desire for Your 
word grow into delight.

Cast Off

The Second Advent of Christ
When Christ returns to the earth, the Millennial Age begins.

The Baptism of Fire
As one of the first activities of Christ when He returns to the earth,
He separates surviving believers  from unbelievers. All unbelievers
are cast off the earth; all believers from the Tribulation go into the
Millenniun. John the Baptist prophesied concerning this in Matthew 3:11;
the details are given in Matthew 24:36-41 and 25:31-46.

"Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him;
and He shall bring it to pass".
Psalm 37:5

Lord, we want to be more like You. May we see where changes 
are necessary, and trust You for the help we need.

Age Of Christ
The fourth and final Dispensation is the Millennium, or the 
Age of Christ. For one thousand years, Christ will rule on
the earth (Rev.20:4) as the Administrator. This Dispensation
is also divided into several parts.
"God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes."
Revelation 21:4
Dear Savior, help me to grow in your grace
even when the tears are falling!

As in all four Dispensations, salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ
Act 16:31

This has been the eight characteristics of the Church Age,
and these are the believer's unique assets.
From R.B.Thieme Jr's book (Dispensations).

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Lord, cleanse my soul as the beautiful snow, and help me resist temptations. In Christ name I pray.

Don't be a Layman

Filling of the Holy Spirit
The means of executing this supernatural way of life is the filling
of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 commands every believer to be
filled with the Spirit; 1 John 1:9 specifies the mechanics. Under this
concept, every believer is an ambassador for Christ; therefore, every
believer is in full-time Christian service, and this does not require a 
"one-shot" dedication on your part. Your full-time Christian service
may be different from someone else's  because he is in a barracks
while you are in an office; he is in a shop--- you are on a farm; he is 
in the home---you are on a campus. Everyone has his own area of
Christian service, and there is actually no such thing as a "layman",
unless it is a Christian who  "lays" down on his job!
"The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul."
Psalm 121:7

Dear Lord, how precious is the assurance of Your presence!
I love you, and I trust my life into Your hands.
