Kingdom Living Transforms Culture
Here is what Nehemiah did to transform a culture: He sat down, wept, mourned, fasted and prayed.
God through HIS Word has given you a formula for the transformation of a Nation or Culture. The transformation starts with you! One brick at a time, hearts are transformed.
3 “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”
4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1:3-4
Nehemiah has given us an example of how a culture is changed. Our own walls are broken. Our moral walls are broken, our family value walls are broken, our integrity walls are broken, our walls of commerce are corrupt and broken, our walls of government are self-seeking and broken, and our church is broken.
The Church is alive and working as we see with Nehemiah. He stopped everything. Like a ton of lead bricks hitting him on the chest, the news of the destruction of his home city and culture caused him to sit down.
- Are you weeping for people and the state of moral depravity without God?
- Are you weeping for the souls that are hungry and thirsty for righteousness but are totally lost?
- Are you fasting and praying?
Hear God speaking to HIS PEOPLE (you): “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
The Kingdom of God has come to earth through the Lord Jesus Christ birth, death and resurrection. He has redeemed and restored fellowship, dominion and authority back to believers. As Nehemiah heard the call to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem one brick at a time, so it is with the call on your heart to rebuild. God wants to build HIS KINGDOM here on earth as it is in HEAVEN through the power of the Holy Spirit living in HIS PEOPLE. This KINGDOM GOVERNMENT has a King that rules for eternity. This KINGDOM will not fail or disappoint.
Man’s kingdom will always fail and fall. Jesus said, “seek first the KINGDOM of God and HIS righteousness and all these things shall be given unto you.”
The call is to rebuild your part of the wall around you. As you weep, mourn, fast and pray the Word of God will become Spirit and Life. You will be humbled and enter the Presence of God. You are called by God. As you seek the Lord you will find him and your heart will be transformed (one brick), a family (many bricks), a community (part of the wall rebuilt), commerce (leadership and management of rebuilding the wall), and a nation (total rebuilt wall around the culture).
