Enemies try to destroy the plan - 18 February
It was not all plain sailing for Nehemiah rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. We heard in past sermons how God had spoken to Nehemiah, with the king of Persia providing material and good passage, and the community being convinced and inspired to start building the wall. But there were others determined to scupper the plan. John told us of Sanballat, Tobiah and Geshem, and their plot of lies and deceipt to discredit Nehemiah, and how they bribed others to do their 'dirty work' for them.
