Put God's House First

2/1/2023
The house of God is designed to demonstrate His will, His day, His way and His work. The people of Nehemiah's day made a pledge of commitment to His House and yet even they fell away after time. This is a call to us today at Faith Center to renew and keep our commitments to the House of our God, putting Him first through our service and giving. We are enabled by God to keep our commitments when we abide in His Word, and when we do, He will never forsake us. VF-2008 Nehemiah 10:39 Watch,...

Nehemiah #17-The Gift of God's Spirit

1/31/2023
Through the Bible God put the gift of His Spirit in human conduits to instruct, to guide, and equip them for service. We see this with the people in Nehemiah’s day, with the 70 elders of Israel, Bezaleel, and many others throughout the Old and New Testament. God’s still placing the same Spirit in us today. It’s not something weird or mystical, but a gift which helps us to grow in the knowledge of Him. Nehemiah 9:20 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott...

The God of Forgivnesses

1/30/2023
A close study of the Hebrew reveals God’s plural forgiveness’s, demonstrated by the fact that He never forsook the children of Israel despite their continuous rebellion. For us the promise is even greater with the covering of the blood of Christ. No matter how much or how often we fall short, we are forgiven.

Nehemiah #15-The Lesson of the Manna

1/27/2023
God demonstrates his ways with man through the lesson of the manna. The children of Israel were fed manna from heaven for 40 years and the people of Nehemiah’s day remembered God’s provision in their prayer. We have the fulfillment of the Bread of life in Jesus Christ who provides food for our souls.

Nehemiah #14-God Holds Up His Word

1/26/2023

Nehemiah #13-Abraham: A Heart Faithful Towards God

Nehemiah #12 - The Joy of the LORD Is Your Strength

1/24/2023
A whole new way of looking at Nehemiah 8:10, “The joy of the LORD is your strength.” This joy is not just happiness, but a joy that connotes unity with God, unity that comes from facing ourselves and recognizing our true nature before Him. As we turn from ourselves to face Him, we find a place of safety, refuge and defense in Him and He finds great joy!

Nehemiah #11- The Understanding That Comes from God

1/23/2023
After finishing the wall, the people gathered to hear Ezra read the Word of God. They were made to understand (been) the law. As the Parable of the Sower shows, not everyone has the capacity to hear the Word and understand (sunesis). We should be thankful for the gift of God that causes our understanding.

God Called You

1/20/2023
Putting together the pieces of the last few messages to see the bigger picture: it's always been God's way to call and draw His people. When HE does it, there will be an ability to respond. We see this with the people He called to rebuild in Ezra and Nehemiah's day and He's doing the same thing with us today.

God's in Control

1/19/2023
God's in control. He showed that He's in control of history by His prophecies and use of a heathen king, Cyrus, and He's also in control of your life and mine. The challenge of this message is to consider our ways. Are we striving against God's purposes, talking back to the Potter and saying “He can't with me” or, “What could I possibly do?” Or are we looking at the pattern of God's way with Cyrus and saying, “Lord, Thy will be done. If you accomplished Your purposes with Cyrus, a heathen...

God Has a Plan and You Are In It

Zerubbabel, one born in Babylon, was an unlikely person to return to Jerusalem to rebuild; yet he did. He was chosen by God not only to rebuild but also to preserve the bloodline to Christ.

You Count for God

1/17/2023
When it comes to the work we are called to do for God, in frustration some may ask, “What’s the point?” Nothing God calls us to do is small in His eyes. It counts to Him. We are to be diligent and faithful in the smallest things for God, like the vigilant gatekeepers, the singers that were the spiritual vitality and the Levites (the minutia men).

Building for God Is a Battle

1/16/2023
Despite the quality of his character, Nehemiah was under constant attack by enemies. They used the tricks of the devil: sending emissaries from hell or close by, egregious lies, entrapment, and emotional sabotage, but that did not deter Nehemiah from the work God sent him to do. We face the same tactics of opposition in building God’s church today, but if we keep our hands to the plow, God will get the victory.
