Neh. 2:20 “Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.”
In the verse above, Nehemiah is talking to Sanballat who represents Satan, Tobiah who represents the Flesh and Geshem who represents the World. These three has no portion in New Jerusalem. From Gods perspective the sinful nature (flesh) died at Calvary (Rom 6:6), and all that remains is the new creation (2Cor 5:17). That new creation is hid in God and as safe as can be (Col 3.3-4).
Satan was defeated at the cross (Col 2:13-15) and even the world can’t influence the new creation which is already “seated in heavenly places” (Eph 2:6) The final fulfilment of this verse however, is in the age to come for all three enemies will have no portion or right in the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:27 “nothing unclean shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the lamb’s book of life”). Nor shall there be any memorials in the New Jerusalem for “the former things shall not come to mind.”
