Nehemiah 4 – “Responding to Opposition”

My sermon notes for Wednesday night, July 20th.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Wednesday at 6:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube. You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

Nehemiah 4:1-23

Opposition is coming

Matthew 5:10-12 – “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (ESV)

The Tactics of the Enemy

They ridiculed – vv. 1-6

They intimidated and threatened – vv. 7-9

The Response of God’s People

Nehemiah responded (Godly leaders pray and plan)

There is a practical plan: WHAT WE CAN DO

There is a spiritual plan: WHAT GOD DOES
