Haggai Feast!

The festive one

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. 

Maybe we'll never stop ...

Although fulfilled in Messiah יהושע  prophecy, in the true Hebrew sense, has 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 of Grace saying (translation in brackets):

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!
