The Great Wall

Seven hundred years before the manger in Bethlehem, construction began on the Great Wall of China. For over 2000 years it served as a barrier to invading armies and those seeking to conquer the ruling Dynasty. Countries are in the business of protecting their property, people, and their power.

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. Psalm 127:1

For years, our enemy had a red face called Communism. We remained steadfast in a Cold War against a governmental evil. Times change and now the face of our enemy is not so readily definable. During the Nixon administration the first communication barriers came down between East and West. Americans began to visit China and see the Great Wall first hand. But long before that peace treaty was ever signed the Lord was busy constructing His church in China.
