Nehemiah 2:1-8 Who is The Real King?”

Admittedly, my notes this week are bare bones, and the audio is not direct, it is from the mic on my laptop. (I accidentally changed the setting in Garage Band) I do believe this is a defining message for me as a pastor, and Emmaus as a church.

Nehemiah 2-1-8 (audio file for download)

Last week: we learned a few things about Nehemiah: he was cup bearer to the king of persia. who had invaded Babylon after they had invaded Jerusalem. He probably lives a pretty good life with comfort and ease. though, when he hears about the city walls around Jerusalem, he is heartbroken for them because walls are so important to a city’s health…

Nehemiah has:

A heart of compassion…leads to…

a heart of prayer…based in

Knowledge of the Word of God

Today we see what transpired after Nehemiah heard the news about his ancestral city of Jerusalem.

Question: Who is the true king?

He waited- 4 months

He prayed- alone with God, and in the moment.

He trusted- though there was an earthly king, he knew who was truly in charge.
