Vintage nehemiah project_11.10.13

  1. 1. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO ME?
  2. 2. NEHEMIAH 1:1-4 The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah: In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, & I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, & also about Jerusalem.
  3. 3. NEHEMIAH 1:1-4 They said to me, “Those who survived the exile & are back in the province are in great trouble & disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, & its gates have been burned with fire.” When I heard these things, I sat down & wept. For some days I mourned & fasted & prayed before the God of heaven…
  4. 4. NEHEMIAH 2:1-5 In the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was brought for him, I took the wine & gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before, so the king asked me, “Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.” I was very much afraid, but I said to the king, “May the king live forever!”
  5. 5. NEHEMIAH 2:1-5 Why should my face not look sad when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins, & its gates have been destroyed by fire?” The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, & I answered the king, “If it pleases the king & if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried so that I can rebuild it.”
  6. 6. NEHEMIAH 2:17-20a Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, & its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, & we will no longer be in disgrace.” I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me & what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work.
  7. 7. NEHEMIAH 2:17-20a But when Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official & Geshem the Arab heard about it, they mocked & ridiculed us. “What is this you are doing?” they asked. “Are you rebelling against the king?” I answered them by saying, “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding…”
  8. 8. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO US?
