Prayer and humility, along with a hatred for sin, produces a "mind
to work." "So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together
unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work" (Nehemiah
4:6). True revivals of holiness always produce workers. Books and
seminars and lectures don't-but revival does!

When God is doing something genuine among His people, Satan
conspires against it. "But it came to pass, that when Sanballat,
and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the
Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and
that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,
and conspired all of them together to come and to fight against
Jerusalem, and to hinder it" (Nehemiah 4:7-8).

The enemy became very angry and conspired to come up against
them to fight and to hinder! His tactic was to secretly infiltrate the
body by sneaking up on them unexpectedly. "Our adversaries said,
They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among
them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease" (verse 11).

They planned to bring into their midst a secret army of pretenders
in disguise. The enemy had no sudden, open, frontal attack, but
rather said, "We will come in the midst among them!" The tactic
was inside sabotage! The enemy said, "They will never know it
is happening." And Satan's strategy has never changed. Even
now he is sending his "angels of light" into gatherings worldwide
with doctrinal sabotage and seductions.

How can we detect them? What is our safeguard? "Nevertheless
we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them
day and night, because of them" (Nehemiah 4:9). The key here
is an intense hatred for sin, true brokenness, fervent prayer and
constant vigilance-along with staying saturated with the Word of God.

Beloved, allow the Holy Spirit to probe your heart very deeply and
very thoroughly, that you may walk wholly blameless before the
Lord in this late hour.
