"Nehemiah - Just an Ordinary Guy" - Nehemiah 1:1-4
In every church there are 3 kinds of people: 1. Destructionists 2. Obstructionists 3. Constructionists ... Nehemiah is the perfect example of how to be the latter. 

 

 

 

"Pray for the Impossible, pt. 1" - Nehemiah 1:4-11
The book of Nehemiah is about building a work for God, and behind every great work of God there is somewhere a KNEELING figure.

 

 

 

"Pray for the Impossible, pt. 2" - Nehemiah 1:4-11

Continuation shows how Nehemiah rebuilt the walls thanks in part to his prayer of contrition, concern, confession, confidence, and commitment.

 

 

 

"Wait for it ... and, Go!" - Nehemiah 2:1-6
Nehemiah not only knew how to watch and pray and weep and pray...but also how to WAIT and pray. How to have success in impossible circumstances.

 

 

 

"Steps to Success" -  Nehemiah 2

It is one of the most successful building projects ever. How did it go from vision to fruition in 52 days? And how will these same principles help us build a church, or a good home, or a business?

 

 

"Principles of Leadership" -  Nehemiah 2:12-20

Nehemiah was by far one of the best leaders in all of history. And anyone who is willing to follow the principles put forth in this book can also become a great leader.

 

 

"More Principles of Leadership" -  Nehemiah 2:12-20

Nehemiah was a great leader. Everyone else saw obstacles and he saw opportunities. Where many saw problems he saw potential.

 

 

 

"Vision" - Nehemiah 2:17

It is what causes leaders to rise to the top of the bucket like cream. It is what separates leaders from followers, and separates mediocre leaders from great ones.

 

 

"Master Delegator" - Nehemiah 3

Many people skip over this chapter because it reads like a Hebrew phone book. But it is a very important chapter full of principles of leadership and delegation.

 

 

"Swing Wide the Gates!" - Nehemiah 3

The names of the gates of the old city of Jerusalem have rich spiritual meaning, full of powerful truths that will take us 3 sermons to cover.  Parts 1 & 2 are here. 

 

 

"Swing Wide the Gates!" - Nehemiah 3

The names of the gates of the old city of Jerusalem have rich spiritual meaning, full of powerful truths that took us 3 sermons to cover.  Part 3 is here. 

 

 

"Dealing with Discouragement" - Nehemiah 4:7-10

Worn out - Weighted down - Wasting away. This describes many Christians today. But Nehemiah shows how to keep battling and building for the cause!

 

 

"Responding to Ridicule" - Nehemiah 4:1-3

When reason fails, some turn to ridicule. They choose laughter over logic. Should the Christian respond? If so, how?

 

 

 

"Save Me, I'm Drowning!" - Nehemiah 5:1-19

God threw His Son into the waters of sin to save us from drowning. Now, what can He do for us who are drowning in debt and financial bondage? Here's the steps to freedom!

 

 

"Distraction" - Nehemiah 6

Nehemiah saw right thru the devil's attempt at distraction and compromise. He said, the valley of Ono? O No! Aren't you glad he said no no to Ono?

 

 

"Slander" - Nehemiah 6

The devil resorts to slander because he is at his worst when he realizes time is about to run out-he must know the signs of the times, and that Jesus could return at any moment.

 

 

"Fear" - Nehemiah 6:9-19

The devil is the sinister minister of fear. It's the opposite of faith, which is what pleases God. Fear Degrades our Lord, Destroys our Lives, and Delights our Enemy.    

 

 

"It's Not About the Wall" - Nehemiah 8:1-17

The wall is finished, but the real work has just begun. It's not about the wall, it's about the Word and the Worship that will be shared within the walls. 

 

 

"Life Inside the WallNehemiah 7
The city was in ruins. They had a wall to prevent invasion, but inside is rubble, and they are supposed to live and worship there.

 

 

 

 

"Battling and BuildingNehemiah 4:11-23
They had a tool in one hand and a sword in the other. They had to multitask and keep one eye on the work and the other eye on the enemy.

 

 

 

 

"Confession Nehemiah 9
God's first choice is to use goodness to lead us to Him, but if we insist, He will use judgment to bring us back to Him in repentance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Consecration and CelebrationNehemiah 10-12
Confession leads to consecration and celebration! When we get right w/ God we cannot help but rejoice. It's time God's people got back to singing on the wall.

Remember...this is primarily a free download ministry...our main goal is getting this material out, but web space and time don't allow for the sermons just added to this page.  Plus, some users don't have "High Speed" connections or don't want to fool with downloading [believe me, I understand!]. 

The money from Instant Download and CD ROM sales helps offset the large amount of web space this ministry consumes, which helps keep this a free service, and will help us be able to post more messages in the future!
