This was sent to me:
Read the 6th chapter of Nehemiah. In this chapter Sanballat has sent for Nehemiah. Nehemiah was busy about the Lord’s work, and he knew there was no good reason to meet with Sanballat. Sanballat and his henchmen pretended they wanted a harmless visit, but Nehemiah was busy. He was working. He didn’t trust their motives in calling him in for a visit. So he politely declined, saying that he was busy doing a great work, and why should he take time away from it to come for a visit with them? He knew that they meant to do him mischief. The continued to try to call him in for a visit, and he continued to decline. He knew they had a plan up their sleeve to halt the work of the Lord. Finally sends a letter in which he comes right out and makes a false accusation, accusing Nehemiah of inciting a rebellion. Sanballat makes a threat, that he will report Nehemiah to the king, and then demands once more that he comes to visit. Nehemiah boldly replied that the accusations were rubbish and that Sanballat was making these things up out of his own heart. I think you can see that this is a pattern that the Holdeman minsters follow. When they begin to fear you and the influence you might have, they begin to send for you for “visits.” They have an agenda to do away with you, but God can give you wisdom to decline the invitation to meet with them, knowing that they have fabricated accusations against you and that by going to meet with them you are playing into their hands and turning over the power to them. This was pointed out to me some years ago as an example that when jealous leaders send for you to visit for some undisclosed reason, and you have nothing in your heart that you feel you need to answer for, and you are simply about the Lord’s business, to beware. They are laying a trap for you. The business of commanding people to come and meet with them for no good reason is truly a time when they do have mischief in their hearts towards you. Beware of Sanballat!
