Sanballat in Hebrew means bramble-bush; enemy in secret other. He is named along with Tobiah, the Ammonite slave, [Nehemiah 4:1], and Geshem the Arabian, [Nehemiah 6:1].
Sanballat the Horonite was, if the appellation which follows his name indicates his origin, a Moabite of Horonaim, a city of Moab mentioned in Isaiah 15:5 and in Jeremiah 48:2,5,34.
As the leading opponent of the Jews at the time when Nehemiah undertook to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, [Nehemiah 2:10; 4:1; 6:1].

Held some place of authority in Samaria when Nehemiah went up to Jerusalem to rebuild its ruined walls. He vainly attempted to hinder this work, [Nehemiah 2:10, 19; 4:1-12; 6].
Sanballat, a Moabite of Horonaim, after hearing the moment of Nehemiah’s arrival in Judea, he set himself to oppose every measure for the welfare of Jerusalem.

The only other incident in his life is his alliance with the high priests family by the marriage of his daughter with one of the grandsons of Eliashib; but the expulsion from the priesthood of the guilty son of Joiada by Nehemiah promptly followed.
Sanballat was a conspirator and rebellious, so, he must not be allowed to operate with his characters in our lives.

Prayer Points:-
1. O Lord God, deliver me completely from bitter envy, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. By the mighty power of God, I overcome all the oppositions to my greatness, glory and success, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Father, let every spirit of Sanballat and Tobiah planning evil against me receive fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Fulfilling Thursday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
