A Study Of Haggai
Renewing the Priority of Encouragement
Haggai 2:1-9 • November 3, 2019 • John Anderson
Back in their home capital after exile in Babylon, many Israelites were filled with discouragement at the prospects of the new temple not measuring up to the old temple of Solomon. God, through His spokesman Haggai, offers them encouragement and hope that He will shake the world from this place when His Son Jesus comes to take over! One greater than Solomon is at work and God will ultimately receive glory from their efforts on rebuilding the temple.
Renewing the Priority of God’s Work
Haggai 1 • October 27, 2019 • John Anderson
The prophet Haggai was a part of those Jews who returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity, and God gave him an important message to deliver to His people. That message identified their misplaced priorities and included a clarion call to make God and His work and His house a primary concern in their daily lives. The LORD “stirred up their spirit” and the work on the temple and in their spiritual hearts was begun once again!
