HAGGAI 2:6-9 (AMP) – THE GORY COMES!
 For thus says the LORD of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake and make tremble the [starry] heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land; [Heb. 12:26]
 And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in and I will fill this house with splendor, says the LORD of hosts. [Isa. 60:5; Matt. 2:1-12]
 The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says the LORD of hosts.
 The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says the LORD of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says the LORD of hosts.
Our SERVICE will be better when we come with OUR PRIORITIES in order!
If the prioritized people will RISE UP…we ain’t seen nothing yet, folks!
Right in the midst of famine FAVOR can fall.
In the midst of chaos, upheaval, and uncertainty. We can be at REST!
While some argue over carpet color, music styles and whether to reach out or not, we can see God’s church packed from top to bottom and front to back
IT IS HIS GLORY, not ours.
HAGGAI 2:18-22 – A SECURE FOUNDATION
 “From this day on, from this twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, give careful thought in the day when the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid. Give careful thought;  Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until now, the vine and the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not borne fruit.
” ‘From this day on I will bless you.’ “
 The word of the LORD came to Haggai a second time on the twenty-fourth day of the month;  “Tell Zerubbabel governor of Judah that I will shake the heavens and the earth.  I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms. I will overthrow chariots and their drivers; horses and their riders will fall, each by the sword of his brother.”
The day the foundation was secured their HARVEST changed!
BEFORE they had even planted a HARVEST was PROMISED!
BEFORE the first link in the chain was broken their BONDAGE was dealt with, on the DAY the FOUNDATION was built, VICTORY and DELIVERANCE were set in motion.
BEFORE the first punch was thrown or landed they found themselves in a fixed fight because of their RIGHT PRIORITIES!
I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of life I desire!
Let me throw open several questions:
- Are you killing yourself trying to live BLESSED?
- Are you seeking provision for you and your family?
- Are you trying to secure your life?
- Are you fitting battles that seem like you can’t win?
- Are you working without God?
Matthew 16:26 (AMP): “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life [his blessed life in the kingdom of God]? Or what would a man give as an exchange for his [blessed] life [in the kingdom of God]?”
HEAR THE HOUSING REPORT AND RESPOND!
Either you and I need to change our priorities or the HOUSE will be in ruins and our PROVISION will be wasted. We need to REPENT–change course–do an about-face.
Paying so much attention to your own house you have no regard or thought to His HOUSE!
Our PRIORITIES are messed up and the result is finding ourselves barren; our lives are meaningless and unblessed! I believe that we’ve either forgotten or don’t really believe the words in Matthew 6:33 anymore!
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
When we get the ORDER right–the KINGDOM first–as His house flourishes our houses will spring to life once again! REVIVAL has always been there if we know where to search!
