Sermons about Haggai
To apply a baseball analogy to the Minor Prophets, we are rounding third and headed for home. Literally. The final three books of the Minor Prophets, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, all deal with the Israelites return to home. This is an entirely new chapter in Israel’s history. The seventy year exile in Babylon is over and the people have returned to Jerusalem and Judah under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah, and Zerubbabel and Joshua. God had moved through the heart and will of one pagan king to attack and destroy Judah. That had been prophesied by Habakkuk and Zephaniah and it happened when Babylon attacked in 586BC and exiled all the people of God. God raised up two prophets, Haggai and Zechariah, men of God’s Word, to call the people to faith and faithfulness, to reorient their priorities. God used Haggai and Zechariah to motivate the people to resume the task. Haggai’s message is a message of challenge and encouragement, of rebuke and reassurance. It covers a period of four months. As a result the temple was finished in four years and dedicated in 516BC. Unlike some of the Minor Prophets we have encountered, this one is precisely dated.

What are those things you reach for to find happiness in life? Is their something in your life that threatens the spot reserved for God alone? In this message, Mr. Scott Sjoblom takes us back 2,500 years in the book of Haggai to consider Israels complacency, idolatry, and a God who is jealous for their heart to the end.
Listen as missionary Patrick Cochenour shares how God sets all things in motion for His purposes according to His will, using the example of God returning the gold seized from the Temple to the rebuilt Temple.
Today we listen to Haggai. When the first wave of Jewish exiles returned from Babylon to Jerusalem in 538 BC, they began to rebuild the temple but soon gave up. Inspired by the prophetic ministries of Haggai and Zechariah, they finally completed the task in 515. Haggai rebuked the people for living in “paneled houses” while the house of God remained in ruins. The rebuilding of the temple symbolized God’s restored presence among his people, unique among the nations of the earth.
