Haggai 2:5-7 (CEB): As with our agreement when you came out of Egypt,my spirit stands in your midst.Don’t fear.This is what the Lord of heavenly forces says:In just a little while, I will make the heavens, the earth, the sea, and the dry land quake.I will make all the nations quake.The wealth of all the nations will come.I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of heavenly forces.
“There is a great market for religious experience in world; there is little enthusiasm for the patient acquisition of virtue, little inclination to sign up for a long apprenticeship in what earlier generations of Christians called holiness.” Eugene Peterson
Haggai 2:8-9 (CEB): The silver and the gold belong to me, says the Lord of heavenly forces.This house will be more glorious than its predecessor, says the Lord of heavenly forces.I will provide prosperity in this place, says the Lord of heavenly forces.
