As the Lord was blessing his people to begin to rebuild the wall, Satan galvanized his forces to try to distract them from this great work. Beginning with ridicule and mocking and escalating to the threat of murder, Satan tried to instill fear in God’s people to stop them from this great work. However, they pressed through this persecution and overcame the threats to accomplish this supposedly impossible task. We can follow their example and overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the work of his testimony.
