4259-The Book Of Haggai

"THE PROPHET OF THE TEMPLE" was reputed to have been born during the seventy years' captivity in Babylon, and to have returned to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel.

MAIN THEME.  Sharp rebukes for the neglect to rebuild the temple, coupled with cheering exhortations and promises to those undertaking the work.

KEY VERSE, ch.2:4.

HISTORICAL OCCASION.
   The remnant that has returned from captivity was selfishly pre-occupied with their own affairs, and were more concerned in beautifying their own dwellings than in rebuilding the Lord's house.
   The work had ceased for years, ch.1:4.

THE MESSAGE
(1) A cutting reproof, showing that God had withheld his natural blessings, because his temple was left in ruins,  ch.1:3-11.
(2) Words of encouragement as the work of rebuilding the temple was resumed, ch.1:12-15.
(3) Inspiring promises to the older people who had seen Solomon's Temple, and were discouraged at the inferiority of the structure they were able to build, ch.2:3.
   They were told of a coming manifestation of divine power and the appearing of the Messiah when the glory of the Lord would fill the house, ch.2:7-9.
(4) A reminder of their unworthiness to errect a house for the Lord of Hosts, ch.2:10-14.
(5) Prediction of the doom of the heathen nations, and words of commendation for Zerubbabel, as God's chosen instrument, ch.2:20-23.

   Divine Presence, strengthening, v.4
       ---   Power, moving, v.6.
       ---   Glory, filling, v.7.
