Leadership Characteristics

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I put in charge of Jerusalem my brother Hanani, along with Hananiah the commander of the citadel, because he was a man of integrity and feared God more than most people do. Nehemiah 7:2 Nehemiah moved quickly from celebrating the completion of the wall to putting in place all the people needed...

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

All the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God. Nehemiah 6:16 I don't know what it is like not to believe in God. I have known his love all my life. I am grateful for this, but it makes me...

It Is Finished

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days. Nehemiah 6:15 I don't know what challenges you are facing today. I know a few of the things on my plate. None of them are as big as what Nehemiah had faced. The wall was built! Remember how he had to pull the people of...

He said, “Let us meet in the house of God, inside the temple, and let us close the temple doors, because men are coming to kill you. Nehemiah 6:10 Shemaiah spoke these words to Nehemiah. It was a lie, but it would not have surprised anyone had it been true. His goal was to intimidate...

They were scheming to harm me; so I sent messengers to them with this reply: “I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Nehemiah 6:2-3 As God's people got close to actually completing the wall the neighboring communities got scared. They preferred the Israelites to be helpless...

Civil Servant

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I devoted myself to the work on this wall. All my men were assembled there for the work; we did not acquire any land. Furthermore, a hundred and fifty Jews and officials ate at my table, as well as those who came to us from the surrounding nations. Nehemiah 5:16-17 Prior to Nehemiah's...

From the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, until his thirty-second year—twelve years—neither I nor my brothers ate the food allotted to the governor. Nehemiah 5:14 Do you want people to trust your leadership? Then...

Making Amends to Those I Have Hurt

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I summoned the priests and made the nobles and officials take an oath to do what they had promised. Nehemiah 5:12  When Nehemiah discovered that the local leaders had taken advantage of the poor he called them out in public. He made them promise to give land back which they had stolen from...

Shame on You

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Give back to them immediately their fields, vineyards, olive groves and houses, and also the interest you are charging them—one percent of the money, grain, new wine and olive oil. Nehemiah 5:11  Jerusalem's city leaders had a difficult task. The elite of the city had been sent into...
