How to Be a Victorious Person

He took on different names but the spirit was exactly the same!

Earlier the building effort having recently begun, Sanballat now laughed in disdain at the Jews, seeking by many means to destroy their morale!

His relentless attacks are the same against us today.
They come in 5 forms!
Look at them in Verse 2

Neh 4:2
"What are these feeble Jews doing? Will they fortify themselves? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they c ...
