Nehemiah's Pain and Prayer for ISRAEL

Nehemiah 1

1. The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,

2. That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.

3. And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

4. And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

5. And said, I beseech Thee, O YAHWEH God of heaven, The Great and Terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe HIS commandments:

6. Let Thine ear now be attentive, and Thine eyes open, that Thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before Thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel Thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against Thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.

7. We have dealt very corruptly against Thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which Thou commandedst Thy servant Moses.

8. Remember, I beseech thee, the word that Thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

9. But if ye turn unto ME, and keep MY commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my NAME there.

10. Now these are Thy servants and Thy people, whom Thou hast redeemed by Thy Great Power, and by Thy Strong Hand.

11. O YAHWEH, I beseech Thee, let now Thine ear be attentive to the prayer of Thy servant, and to the prayer of Thy servants, who desire to Fear Thy NAME: and prosper, I pray thee, Thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.


One of ISRAEL's problems thru the years was a falling into idolatry, which is the problem King Solomon came up against with his wives and concubines, this ultimatly caused GOD to seperate the tribes of Judah, and Benjiman, from the rest of the Tribes, creating "The House of Judah" and "The House of Israel". (Some, if not all, of the Levites followed "The House of Judah", as evidence of this, the book of MALACHI devotes chapter 2 as a warning from YAHWEH to the Priesthood [Levites] of wrong doings, also see Hebrews in N.T. 7:5, proof the levites were still at The Temple during the time of the Messiah).

"The House of Israel" became "The Lost Tribes", they have sence been regathered where they were scattered to, and members of all the tribes can be found in Great Britian and The U.S.A. Saddly the people of "The House of Israel" are still hard learners, and just as stiff necked as they were in The Provocation. Refusing instruction, and casting off GOD's Commandments for traditions of men. One of the problems may be the fact that "The Lost Tribes" also lost their identity as Israelites, they forgot who they were! Members of "The Lost Tribes" don't know they are YISRAELITES!

Not accepting you are an "Israelite" but calling yourself a "christian" is almost a contradiction of words, as there are many "christians" who are "Israelitis" from "The Lost Tribes". Some insite into the background of most people can be found on, search "origins".

Idolitry is prominent in both the U.S.A. and Great Britain today, (the word "British", by the way, is derived from two Hebrew words BRIT=covenant, and ISH=man i.e. "BRITISH"="covenantman")The Tribe of Ephraim, who setteled in Great Britain, were Israelites, covenent men! The Manassites, The Tribe of Manasseh, setteled in the U.S.A., starting with the 13 colonies, and grew in number with the migration from Germany that started around the 1500's and lasted up to the late 1800's.

The Commandment is: I am YAHWEH thy GOD that brought you out of the Land of Egypt from the house of bondage thou shalt have NO OTHER God's but ME!! The j letter came into use about 1640 c.e. therefore, refrence to any god using the j letter is calling on a false god, and IDOLATRY, pure and simple.
