The Israelites' Persecution and Perseverance and God's Pervasive Presence

Ezra and Nehemiah

In these chapters, we see the fear that impedes that Israelites? progress on the temple as a result of their persecution followed by their faith in the Lord that allows them to persevere. And we see the presence of the Lord in both. When he exhorted them to continue building, Haggai told them that the Lord would be with them ? and we can rest in the same!
