KEEP BUILDING THE ANCIENT RUINS. 
Chelsea Hagen

I hear the Lord saying “keep building the ancient ruins Sons and Daughters”

Isaiah 61:4 – They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.

Just like in the book of Nehemiah any great work of rebuilding the ancient ruins for Gods kingdom will have opposition and persecution. 
I hear God say don’t be distracted by what the enemy is trying to do in this season but KEEP YOUR FOCUS on building the wall, KEEP YOUR FOCUS on building the Kingdom, KEEP YOUR FOCUS on the things that will matter in eternity.

Col 3:2 – Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth

Nehemiah had a mandate from God, a dream, a vision, a great purpose just like us God has a plan for each one of our lives.

Nehemiah 2:19 tells us that he was despised and laughed to scorn , he was mocked and people took great indignation against what God had put in his heart to do.

I see as you are trying to build the wall the enemy is vehemently trying to come against you by throw ing threats, he is trying to conspire against you, to greatly discourage you, to slander, to greatly hinder and stop this mighty work of God that’s in your hand right now.

YOU MUST NOT GIVE UP – NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO GIVE UP!! 
Even thou there has been a sudden increase in the naysayers, the critics, the despising, and ridicule. 
I hear the Lord whispering to you His dearly beloved, just keep feasting at my table of goodness by word, prayer worship, intimate communion with me so my purposes, my direction, my heart, my voice will strengthen and encourage you. 
DO NOT leave the table for anything. Don’t be distracted away from Building the kingdom.

God will finish what He started! You will see the fulfilment of what God has put in your heart. 
I see the enemy is vehemently trying to cause you give up, to hand the trowel to someone else, to stop building because of an intense barrage of discouragement and opposition.

Even though you may be looking at your part of the wall and be discouraged that it’s not being built quick enough. God would remind you that he sees the whole wall in its entirety. He sees the bigger picture which is eternity, He sees all His His servants building together. KEEP YOUR FOCUS you are having exceedingly more impact than you think.

Now is not the time to stop and give up half way through building the wall. God would say you need to push back against the demonic opposition by remaining close to Him, stand your ground, take your rightful place, keep building, and train others to build. He wants to encourage you that you are indeed taking ground, you are building the ancient ruins of broken down, destitute generations, you are making great progress.

God is bringing recompense and restoration in these generations like never seen before.
Just like the locust can devour a whole city or town in a matter of days I likewise also see God restoring and rebuilding what the locusts have eaten. I see Him restoring the ancient ruins of generations in towns and cities in days.

I see God accomplishing in this generation, all the years of generations that have gone before us. I see Him reviving those calls that have laid dormant. I see Him reviving those calls that weren’t taken up and I see the unfinished works of generations being fulfilled and accomplished through this and the next generations.

KEEP YOUR FOCUS dearly beloved on the purpose God has placed in your heart, keep your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus the author and perfector of your faith. 
What you are building is so vital, it’s heavens monument and historic marker so that the next generation can clearly see the goodness and absolute stunning glory of God all over this earth. 
BE GREATLY ENCOURAGED and REFRESHED!! You are further along building the wall than you think.
