The Messages of Haggai

Stuart Briscoe

In 529 B.C., a prophet named Haggai appeared on the scene in Jerusalem. The city was in ruins at the time. About 18 years earlier, 50,000 people had returned to Jerusalem from the Babylonian captivity with the express purpose of rebuilding the Temple. But nothing had been done. The people had neglected the work of the Lord and concentrated on their own affairs. 

Haggai delivered four prophetic messages to the despondent, dispirited, and distracted people. What he had to say refocused their minds, completely changed their hearts, and began to transform the face of the city. 

The challenge, rebuke, instruction, and encouragement contained in the messages of Haggai are timeless in their application. What the Lord told His ancient people through the prophet He still proclaims today. In Haggai's day the people listened and responded positively. Will you?

  1. 2. The Message of Encouragement

    Stuart Briscoe

    Haggai delivered a prophetic message to the despondent, dispirited, and distracted people, temporarily reviving their hopes. But discouragement set in less than a month after the returned exiles had been motivated and mobilized to embark on a Temple rebuilding project. Haggai was called again to deliver the "word of the Lord," this time with powerful words of encouragement.

    God has projects for us, too, and by relying on His strength and the "power of his might," we can have inner assurance that He is with us as we move ahead. 

    Scripture:  Haggai 2:1 - 2:9
