Show Notes for Grains from Gutteridge Episode 003:

Pastor Percy Gutteridge’s description of this message:

Why can we trust in the Lord at all times? Because He is the Truth and ever speaks the truth, and fulfilled prophecy bears this out:

  • Jeremiah’s prophecy of the Jewish captivity;
  • Daniel’s recognition of its fulfillment;
  • Isaiah’s prophecy two hundred years before the birth of Cyrus the Persian, that he would be the man to restore the Jews to Jerusalem;
  • Ezra’s and Nehemiah’s parts in doing this work.

All this manifests God’s truth and faithfulness. But we must learn to trust Him as Nehemiah did, through discouragement, frustration, opposition by Gentile foes and traitors from his own people. Through it all, God had a hidden purpose in the Jewish return to Jerusalem, so that He might save them from His coming judgments upon Babylon. This is always His way with His own people.

Scriptures quoted include:

  • Nehemiah 5:1-13
  • Jeremiah 25:8-11
  • Isaiah 44:24—45:4
  • Daniel 5
