Exiles newly returned to the Promised Land continue in a mood of discouragement. “Gone are the days of the glory of Solomon and the Temple.” They settle for only building houses for themselves. Though found at home once again, they are lost in the consuming pressure of their own need, bringing them to the brink of despair.

God calls Haggai to prophesy and to minister to these lost ones. His name means “Festivity.” The Spirit also moves within the governor, Zerubbabel, to ignite the people into a common energy to rebuild the Temple so that the glory of God will be present with them once again as in days of old.

The prophet seeks to free you from preoccupations with your concerns alone, to a desire to “Seek first the Kingdom of God” (Matt 6:33). Worship the Lord present in the temple of your own body and the glory of the Lord will shine from you, filling you with Kingdom energy.
