2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “These people say, ‘The time has not yet come to rebuild the Lord’s house.’”
3 Then the word of the Lord came through the prophet Haggai:
4 “Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”
5 Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways.
6 You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”
7 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways.
8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the Lord.
9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the Lord Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house.
10 Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops.
11 I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”
12 Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest, and the whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the Lord their God had sent him. And the people feared the Lord.
Know that we are the Lords living temples on earth, building in us a fortress which is the very representation of who He is and what He stands for on earth as it is in Heaven.
We are each the living stones that make up a different part to play and we need to allow Him to mould us and fit us where we need to be to activate our position in what God is building on this earth.
We are His workmanship, we are created in Christ Jesus to do good works, He planned this before the earth was formed and mankind came into being, He already had it in His imagination the works that you and I would perform for the Kingdom of God.
This is what building a hope and a future is about, God is in the building business here on earth and we are His instruments of Glory, the works are described as the greater works by Jesus and He has commissioned each of us to bring Heaven on earth.
Notice in Haggai that this is how things were that the Temple was not a priority, the people of God were about their own business of survival and securing themselves in the land.
But you see the Good News is when they were made aware that the priority should be being about building Gods house and not their own first that then they would really thrive and not just survive.
The people of God then repented and obeyed the Word of God and the message brought by the prophets and so it is today, we are getting our focus back on track seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all these things will also be added.
When you are thrown into survival mode by the onslaught of the storms in life, that's what you tend to do, you just try to make things work making ends meet and then perhaps you can look at the other things.
We all tend to follow survival mode logic and natural thinking that we naturally do when we are under it and are looking after number one, blocking out the voice of God and not hearing what His prophets are saying in this hour.
But as you may have learnt in the faith of God school, it is all turned upside down and right side up, faith seems to call things that are not as though they are, faith goes about moving the mountains of opposition and then nothing is impossible for those that believe and this is when we shift into operating in Gods economy, we make a withdrawal from the banks of the unseen to bring multiplication to the visible, we no longer do subtraction of the resources like the world offers.
This is the now season where I believe we are at as the people of faith, we are now awakened and have shifted our focus to building the house of God, ushering in the Glory of God which will fill the earth.
In the parable of the seeds told by Jesus in the Gospels it mentions the seeds that were choked by the cares of this world and desire for riches swallowed up the life in the seed so it did not produce.
These were thorns and weeds that crept in and were mixed into the garden which is our hearts and what gets our focus and attention in life, so that eventually as they were not dealt with they took over and choked the life out of the seeds producing good fruit.
Can you identify with this scenario, I can and I believe that is where we have been at and God is dealing with us to remove those things that suck the life out of us and choke the good fruit out of our lives.
When the people of God heard the prophets and the Word of God, they repented and turned their priorities back to God fully so that the good fruit would come, this is the fruit of the great harvest that is coming upon the earth, where the Glory of God will cover the globe and strike nations, shake nations and move nations with the greater works, signs, wonders and miracles an overwhelming glory wave cleansing the earth of contamination.
A Billion Souls plus will enter the Kingdom of God as this wave covers the entire globe and there isn't a devil from hell that can stop it, the gates of corruption, control and manipulation that causes death and destruction will not prevail.
Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Even though we would be in a time where you would say gross darkness covers the earth and evil people with agendas from devils have afflicted the earth with unprecedented wickedness bringing death.
We see that the light has come and the Glory of God has arisen in us, we are His house where His very presence dwells which is why the Glory comes and the light is shining, we are housing His presence and allowing our gifts to glow due to the light of the Lord activated inside our beings.
When this is manifested in brighter intensity, as we become more like Jesus, full of power, authority and compassion, you know what people notice, then they will rush to the alter repenting from their ways and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
This is a great awakening, the reformation, the revival that will shake not only the heavens but the whole earth.
Sometimes sadly when it seems the darkness is prevailing and nothing changes but gets much worse on earth, God's saints lose their way due to lack of vision.
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Perishing is not living, it isn't life in abundance and that is not what Jesus came to give us which is the abundant life, that means plenty of life for us and a lot left over to help others.
When you are struggling to survive, just getting by and the things get on top of you it is hard to sit down and gather your thoughts and say "I am here for a reason and Gods far out idea for me and my future is much bigger than just getting by street".
It is hard to think of others when you are under it you know.
This is where we just need to accept that God is greater and nothing is too difficult for Him, believe He is who He says He is and believe who He says we are, pick up our instruments and get on the Glory building team.
Be part of the bright bunch of builders that get up and make a difference, be part of the answer, get your eyes on the master plans of the solution with the God given ability of a problem solver, no longer focused on all of the problems we are the overcomers.
That's why we need to set aside time to be with God, receive His love and acceptance, get hold of His picture that He has about us ruling and reigning with Him; as we allow Him to share the vision He has for us we will delight to be in the wonders that will pour out on others within our sphere.
What does this also mean? Release from the tyranny from evil dictators and corrupt rulers, think about the crimes against humanity and being set free from the perpetrators.
In so many areas in our so called democracies this is what is happening, poverty, planned plagues made in the lab, we are robbed and pillaged by oppressive regimes with sick agendas, even the unborn is killed and the young abused by the current administrations.
They want MK mind controlled zombies to fill our neighbourhoods and streets yelling and waving their false flags peddling lies using intimidation tactics, then they will loot and destroy if they perceive you are successful and can make it on your own, what happened to looking after the working class and small business that's gone with the wind and cancelled, so the thugs are sent in after the disarming gun control, they are the tools for the cabal to do their dirty work in bringing us all down to the lowest common denominator, easy to control and made into dependents on the evil new order state.
No it doesn't mean a huge fusion hotch potch of nations either all crammed together in a super city hoping for an idealistic mix! Why don't you just allow nations to have their separate identity and culture and stop trying to make us all into a global city that makes us all synthetic digitised paper dolls in a row from the sick plan and warped thinking making humans into a programmable altered DNA species with robotic machine connected behaviours modified by the technocratic big brother AI beast, while the controllers amass the worlds riches and live in secluded castles with heavy security to keep the mob out that they pretend to endorse and tell you this is equality.
The 2030 whacko plan is a fake utopia based on false promises and pretentious do good lies for policies that if you are sucker enough they hope you buy into it.
The curse goes back many generations and has infected our DNA, bringing with it crooked pathways which leads us into captivity and destruction.
Government that is righteous has values that works for the people, giving all a chance to be their own individual expression on earth and make a difference, we can contribute by being uniquely gifted offering something valuable to others.
We don't want no false unity education.
There is the counterfeit that may look good on the surface with some self righteous pride and arrogance that attempts to replace the truth.
Give me the real deal any day.
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—
16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
As Jesus is so are we in this world.
We are anointed and appointed to go forth and produce much good fruit.
The Good News is preached, the broken hearted are healed and the captives are set free.
When the Glory comes we will rebuild the ruins of societies and repair cities to be shining habitations where people's rights and freedoms are not abused by tyrannical maniacs greedy for power and intent on killing us off so they can have the planet all to themselves.
Look out buddy boys the great wealth transfer will happen sooner than you think, knock knock on your door! God will remove the wealth from the wicked and transfer it to those who are about building Gods House.
The main thing is that lives will be transformed and we will be filled by the Spirit of God knowing love, joy and peace.
The main thing is that each one knows God and knows they are accepted and loved by Him with an everlasting love and we will love to spread the Good News to all Nations so that all will come to know Him.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
With eagle eye precision and divine insight into mysteries of God into the Kingdom Age, the built up temple of believers vision is being restored.
Our eyes are open and we are now Seeing Beyond 2020 Vision.
The Temple of God which is being raised up for this very hour will overwhelm the nations like a tsunami wave flood of righteousness, justice and truth which will clean out the filth of manmade structures and systems of evil control.
What do you see? The Glory of the Temple of God on earth which is built in pure glistening gold is radiating pure glowing light to the nations of this world.
The Gold and Silver are Gods and we are His own.
Be blessed to be a blessing.
