Brother Nehemiah was very devoted to serving God faithfully and keeping The temple free from the enemy of God. He also taught the importance of keeping the sabbath Holy. Let us learn from him to keep our temples free from the temptation of the enemy of God and to honor The Sabbath with all our hearts.
Love and Peace in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
I put Shelemiah the priest, Zadok the scribe, and a Levite named Pedaiah in charge of the storerooms and made Hanan son of Zakkur, the son of Mattaniah, their assistant, because they were considered trustworthy. They were made responsible for distributing the supplies to their fellow Levites. Remember me for this, my God, and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done for the house of my God and its services. In those days I saw people in Judah treading winepresses on the Sabbath and bringing in grain and loading it on donkeys, together with wine, grapes, figs and all other kinds of loads. And they were bringing all this into Jerusalem on the Sabbath. Therefore I warned them against selling food on that day. People from Tyre who lived in Jerusalem were bringing in fish and all kinds of merchandise and selling them in Jerusalem on the Sabbath to the people of Judah.
