Duration:44 mins 37 secs
Revived Stones #3: Lessons from the Book of Nehemiah

Talking vs. Doing...
  • What is your doing...saying?
  • A tree is known by its fruit!
Nehemiah 2:11-18
  • He doesn't blame or criticize that nothing has been done...he encourages them.
Encouraging???
  • He got them to hope again.
  • He stirred them up.
  • He cast a vision.
Nehemiah 2:19-20
  • Whenever someone steps out boldly for God that person can expect resistance and opposition.
  • That opposition will take many forms. It will come from places you least expect, and it will come from people who should know better.
Tactics of the Enemy...
 
1. They jeered at them and despised them. 2 Chron. 7:1-4; Eph. 2:19-22; 1 Cor. 3:16-17
  • Why are we so quick to gossip, slander leadership, ridicule others, etc.?
2. Cast doubts on motives. Titus 3:10, "As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, having NOTHING to do with him."

Nehemiah 3:1 – People are watching you.
  • Have you ever thought that one of the purposes of the church is to prepare, strengthen, and make something able to be used?
The Tekoites???
  • Literally this means that they would NOT submit to what the Lord wanted them to do.
  • Bottom Line: The world and the church still have a lot of Tekoite nobles in it.
Malchijah...Malchijah has a past!!! Ezra 10:31
  • Don't you dare let your past failures get in the way of doing what you know you supposed to do.
Nehemiah 3:12...
  • It is time to stop expecting to be served and get up and get to serving.
Nehemiah 3:27...
  • Some of you are refusing to rise up and build because you have tried before and been burned.
  • BREAK THE CYCLE.
  • Don't allow a bad experience in the past keep you from doing what needs to be done today.
