A Time of Great Shaking
"For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts." Haggai 2:6-7
This morning, God led me to the Book of Haggai. I believe it would also be a helpful reading for others. Remember, we are the temple of the Lord. We need to be about building up our spirit man at the expense of all else. As the days unfold and the Lord increases the shaking of this world, how will we otherwise be able to stand? We need to be stirred up towards obedience to the word of the Lord (II Timothy 1:6; II Peter 3:1-2).
"And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God." Haggai 1:14
So if you have a moment today, I encourage you to read the Book of Haggai as it is a timely message for the church today. It is two short chapters, but is a powerful message. After reading it, I also found a bible study on Haggai by Pastor Zac Poonen which is edifying as well.
