The new temple of the Lord was completed……
God told Haggai to assure them that this new temple would be greater than the old one.
Because Jesus, the Son of God, was going to walk through this temple one day.
The Lord Almighty told the Israelites that in a little while he was going to “shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry lands. I will shake all the nations and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory.” (vs 2:6,7)
Yes, God definitely shook up the whole earth when he sent his son to save it. Thank you, Father. Jesus turned the entire religious community upside down when he spoke of unconditional love, unearned grace and life forever with God in heaven. Thank you, Father.
Jesus offers a peace that passes all understanding to those who believe. Thank, Father.
And he brought a greater glory to the temple and into the whole world than we have ever seen before or will ever see again….
until he returns.
Come, Lord Jesus.
