The second peril was a problem of incorrect perspective. The third peril was a problem of unrealistic expectation. The fourth peril was a problem of unnecessary fear.

The Peril of Misplaced Priority • The people did not think the time was The Peril of Misplaced Priority • The people did not think the time was right to proceed with the rebuilding of the temple (1: 2). • Haggai 1: 2, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'This people says, ‘The time has not come, even the time for the house of the LORD to be rebuilt. ”

"You have sown much, but harvest little; you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied; you drink, but there is not enough to become drunk; you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns, earns wages to put into a purse with holes. "

What Was The Result? Haggai 1: 7 -9 (NASB), “Thus says the LORD of What Was The Result? Haggai 1: 7 -9 (NASB), “Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains, bring wood and rebuild the temple, that I may be pleased with it and be glorified, " says the LORD. You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away. Why? " declares the LORD of hosts, "Because of My house which lies desolate, while each of you runs to his own house.

What Was The Result? Haggai 1: 10 -11 (NASB), “Therefore, because of you the What Was The Result? Haggai 1: 10 -11 (NASB), “Therefore, because of you the sky has withheld its dew, and the earth has withheld its produce. And I called for a drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on men, on cattle, and on all the labor of your hands. "

Application • • • Sometimes we prioritize our own lives and desires over God’s Application • • • Sometimes we prioritize our own lives and desires over God’s work Sometimes God prevents us from having what we truly desire because they are idols that prevent us from truly enjoying and serving Him James 4: 3 -4, “You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. ”)

Solution: Obedience and Fear of the Lord Haggai 1: 14 -15 • So the Solution: Obedience and Fear of the Lord Haggai 1: 14 -15 • So the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and worked on the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, 15 on the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month in the second year of Darius the king.

Solution according to Constable • In regard to their problem of misplaced priorities, the Solution according to Constable • In regard to their problem of misplaced priorities, the people's duty was to get back to rebuilding the temple (1: 8). • They needed to give priority to what God said they should do rather than to what they wanted to do. • The dynamic that God would provide was His enabling presence with them. He would be with them (1: 13 "'I am with you, ' declares the LORD. ").

God’s Next Message Haggai 2: 1 -2 • On the twenty-first of the seventh God’s Next Message Haggai 2: 1 -2 • On the twenty-first of the seventh month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet saying, 2 "Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people saying, • This message from the Lord came one month later on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles (440 years after the dedication of Solomon’s temple cf. 1 Kings 8: 2).

Haggai 2: 3 -5 'Who is left among you who saw this temple in Haggai 2: 3 -5 'Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now?

The Problem of Incorrect Perspective The people compared this temple to the last one The Problem of Incorrect Perspective The people compared this temple to the last one which discouraged them from working. The other temple was destroyed due to their disobedience.

Application v Too often we expect quick results and get discouraged when they don’t Application v Too often we expect quick results and get discouraged when they don’t come

Solution According to Constable • With regard to their problem of incorrect perspective, their Solution According to Constable • With regard to their problem of incorrect perspective, their duty was to be strong and work. • They should not compare the work God had given them to do with the work He had given their ancestors to do. • They should simply give themselves to carrying out the will of God for them. • The dynamic God promised to provide was again His own presence with them (2: 4). He would help them do what He had called them to do.

Haggai 2: 6 -9 (NASB) • For thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Once Haggai 2: 6 -9 (NASB) • For thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. 7 'I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory, ' says the LORD of hosts. 8 'The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, ' declares the LORD of hosts. 9 'The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former, ' says the LORD of hosts, 'and in this place I will give peace, ' declares the LORD of hosts. "

Haggai 2: 12 -14 'If a man carries holy meat in the fold of Haggai 2: 12 -14 'If a man carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and touches bread with this fold, or cooked food, wine, oil, or any other food, will it become holy? '" And the priests answered and said, "No. " 13 Then Haggai said, "If one who is unclean from a corpse touches any of these, will the latter become unclean? " And the priests answered and said, "It will become unclean. " 14 Then Haggai answered and said, "'So is this people. And so is this nation before Me, ' declares the LORD, 'and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean.

The Problem of Unrealistic Expectation v The people thought that they could just build The Problem of Unrealistic Expectation v The people thought that they could just build the temple and leave impure lives and God would bless it.

Application v. We often think that if we do good things for God this Application v. We often think that if we do good things for God this excuses our sin.

Solution • Regarding their problem of unrealistic expectation, their duty was to learn from Solution • Regarding their problem of unrealistic expectation, their duty was to learn from their priests, who would get the Lord's will from Torah, that blessing would come in response to genuine obedience. • It was not enough to simply rebuild the temple. That was only part of God's will for His people, and not really the most important part. • More important was that they should genuinely seek to exalt the Lord in their lives by following Him faithfully. • The dynamic Yahweh promised for such heartfelt obedience was blessing on their lives (2: 19).

The Problem of Unnecessary Fear • The people looked at the Gentile nations and The Problem of Unnecessary Fear • The people looked at the Gentile nations and were scared to do the project

Application Ø We often are scared to work with the lost, poor or people Application Ø We often are scared to work with the lost, poor or people from other countries because we don’t understand them. Ø We may fear our children going into ministry

Haggai 2: 21 -22 • Haggai 2: 21 -22 • "Speak to Zerubbabel governor of Judah saying, 'I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. 22 'And I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, everyone by the sword of another. '

Haggai 2: 23 (NASB) • 'On that day, ' declares the LORD of hosts, Haggai 2: 23 (NASB) • 'On that day, ' declares the LORD of hosts, 'I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant, ' declares the LORD, 'and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you, '" declares the LORD of hosts.

Solution • In regard to their problem of unnecessary fear, the people's duty was Solution • In regard to their problem of unnecessary fear, the people's duty was to be patient. • They might not see a reversal of conditions in the immediate future, but eventually God would restore His people, as He promised. • The dynamic God promised them was His own acting in time to reverse their fortunes (2: 22 -23). The Gentiles would not lord it over them forever. • Their present leader, Zerubbabel, was only a foreview of a greater leader whom God would provide for them in the future. We know that the times of the Gentiles will come to an end when Jesus Christ returns to the earth to reign
