“Out of the Rubble…” Time To Consider message by Steve Martin
July 7, 2020 Love For His People ministry in Charlotte, North Carolina USA
“Then I gave them my report: “Face it: we’re in a bad way here. Jerusalem is a wreck; its gates are burned up. Come — let’s build the wall of Jerusalem and not live with this disgrace any longer.” I told them how God was supporting me and how the king was backing me up. They said, “We’re with you. Let’s get started.” They rolled up their sleeves, ready for the good work.” Nehemiah 2:17-18, THE MESSAGE
But the people saw this and spoke, “Y’hudah was saying, “The strength of the people who carry loads away is starting to fail, and there is so much rubble that we can’t build the wall.” Nehemiah 4:4, Complete Jewish Bible
How often have we seen the same situation in our day and then spoke those same words, “we can’t build the wall.”
As I was sharing encouragement back and forth with our Israeli friends, and posting words on our website from those speaking up and speaking out against the American and world unrest, given the situation that many find themselves experiencing these past months, the Holy Spirit gave me this word, “Out of the rubble.”
Then relating that word to Scripture, the foundation upon which we must always stand, I looked up the book of Nehemiah, written for our benefit and encouragement, who himself was called by the Lord out of Babylon to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the wall, out of the rubble.
What hope we have for today!
As the anarchists, cheered on by the wicked people in exalted thrones of authority, coupled with those seeking to destroy, vandalize, tear down the historical and spiritual foundations of our country, the Lord is speaking from the heavens, “Out of the rubble” I will rebuild My Wall, My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail.
“Simon Peter said, “You’re the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus came back, “God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.” Matthew 16:16-18, THE MESSAGE
No hell on earth, no satanic forces in the heavens, no man, no woman, no government or reign of power will keep our God from building His Wall, His Church, His Kingdom that is to come on earth as it is in heaven.
No way! No how!
After telling His disciples, soon to be apostles (“sent out ones”) as to Who He was, He spoke this word of strength and encouragement to them, for they were going to need it.
“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? “For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS. “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” Matthew 16: 24-28, NASU
Out of the rubble will come the seeds that have been buried, placed there by the Lord from the beginning of time, to sprout forth at these end of days. As the enemy shows his true colors, and destruction seemingly flourishes and abounds, those whom the Lord has chosen, those whom the Lord has called, those who have accepted His command to “come and follow Me” with rise up, sprout with the new life they have within by the salvation brought through Jesus Christ and the empowerment of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, to rebuild the foundational walls, and see His Church established, as the One New Man, born again Jews and Gentiles, come together to do it.
The gates of hell will not prevail. The raging seas of people will not fully destroy it, seeking to do so as they may. The destructive forces of the wicked, demonic, total hellfire of the opposing side will never replace the One Who alone is seated on the throne, ready to soon return and take up His rightful place of His established Kingdom rule in Jerusalem.
“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. “All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.” Matthew 25:31-33, NASU
The Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is not caught off guard by that which fills our newscasts of fake news. The Living God of Israel has not abandoned us. He has not forsaken us. He has not “left behind” those who have called, and will continue to call, upon His Name, along with those who are yet to be called to pick up His banner and perform His wondrous works.
Out of the rubble that mankind had brought in all his vast “wisdom and flaunting”, supposedly throwing off all that restrains to build their own kingdoms, will come the everlasting Kingdom that the Lord God Himself is establishing on the earth.
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment, you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord.” Isiah 54:17, NKJV
So, I encourage you to stand fast as we are so encouraged to do throughout God’s Holy Word. “But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.” 2 Thessalonians, NKJV
The glory of the Lord will be revealed. He will be exalted. He will accomplish His plans and purposes throughout the earth.
The gates of hell shall not prevail. The Lord God Almighty will!
