Duration:34 mins 7 secs
Revived Stones #8: Lessons from the Book of Nehemiah

All revival begins with a proclamation of the word of God.

Sword...
  • Hebrews 4:12
  • They expected the culture to submit to scripture they did not make scripture submit to culture.
Nehemiah 8:13
  • INPUT...they absorbed an understanding of the facts and that understanding was increased.
  • BUT they didn't have something important...INSIGHT.
  • When you read the word are you more concerned with input or insight?
  • A vast knowledge of Bible facts is no guarantee of insight.
The Power of Scripture...The power of the Bible rests in the Spirit's ability to use it to change everything inside of us.
  • Something was missing...it was the living, breathing, word of. God as a way of life, a constant companion, and a path for knowing God...not just knowing about God.
Nehemiah 8:13-18
  • If revival is going to happen, we MUST apply the word of God to our lives.
A bible opened for observation and interpretation WITHOUT application is simply a decoration.

Gaining Insight takes...
  1. TIME
  2. The right PEOPLE
  3. The right ATTITUDE
When we proclaim and apply the word it leads to...
  1. Obedience
  2. Genuine happiness
Nehemiah 8:17
  • The entire assembly obeyed
  • There was great rejoicing
