Build Up in One Heart
馮偉牧師 Rev. Wei Feng
尼希米记 Nehemiah 2:18.
在波斯王年间，从被掳归回耶路撒冷的以色列人重建的步骤是圣殿、圣言、圣城。圣殿是神的同在。圣言是复兴的核心。圣城是属灵疆域的范围，属灵建造的操练，和属灵争战的堡垒。尼希米在重重困难中带领以色列人修造城墙。～ During the Kingdom of Persia time, the Israelites who returned to Jerusalem from captivity had three steps of rebuilding: the Holy Temple, the Holy Word, and the Holy City. The Holy Temple is the presence of God, the Holy Word is the key to renewal. The Holy City is the boundary of spiritual realm, the practice of spiritual formation, and the fortress of spiritual warfare. Nehemiah led the Israelites to build up the city wall in the midst of all kinds of difficulties.
