From Confusion to Feast!

Standing back, knowing which side of the cross we are looking from, knowing our position as heirs - let us now consider the whole of the book of Haggai.

Haggai means "Festive". He is one of the last prophets prophesying to the Jews upon their return from Babylon, encouraging them to continue rebuilding the temple. Although fulfilled in Messiah יהושע  prophecy in the true Hebrew sense have a reoccurring side to it and thus also speaks to the second coming of  Messiah יהושע .

But let us look at the last verse that truely sums up the message of mr. Festive:

Hag 2:23
"In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts."

What is God saying?

As new testament heirs He is anointing us with His Gospel Grace saying:

In that day - the glorious day on the cross, He the Almighty God of all power, will take you [us], Zerubabel [seed from Babylon - us born in the confusion - of mixture between truth and deception, Grace and law...] His servant [speaking of those with a heart toward Him] the sons and daughters of Shealtiel [called of God] - all of us cleansed by the Blood of His Son and He will make us His treasured possession - a sign onto all, a light on a hill, a seal on a ring... the feast between a bride and a Groom! Christ in us the Hope of Glory!
Oh beloved, do you see?

This is marriage-talk! 

This is festive talk!
