Day 6 Notes – Haggai 2:1-9

Welcome back, fellow exile!


Memory scripture: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, this person is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB2020

Time Period

Darius is back in the picture, but a thousand miles away from Jerusalem, in Susa, the capitol of Persia, likely to clean up the messes his progeny made while he was away (that’s Xerxes and Artaxerxes), and Darius hasn’t yet reversed Artaxerxes cease and desist order on the Jews’ rebuilding efforts.

At this point in the game, G-d knows what trials we have gone through, and more importantly, He knows the trials to come. In this moment, He asks us to compare our temple: the way it was before exile and the way it is now, and knowing all the trials we face He says, “Take courage and work!”

He says this to both our executives and to the pastorate, and to the lay people all as well. Is the Lord’s plan to globally “shake” things up as true today as it was in Haggai’s time? During that shake-up then, Yeshua was born, lived, died, and was resurrected. Before that shake-up, the Lord wanted the temple to be in even better shape for that event than it was before exile. Does He want the same for our temple today? Is He about to shake things up “once more” as He did then?

Big Take-Aways from Haggai 2:1-9

18) When trials come, realize we are not done yet, take courage, repent first and then get back to work. He will be with you.
