This is sermon #2 in our series through the minor prophet book of Haggai. In this message, Dr. Andrew White teaches through Haggai 2:1–9. After their return from exile in Babylon, the remnant of Israel began to rebuild the temple. However, discouragement caused them to abandon the project. Sixteen years later, God spoke through his prophet Haggai to stir the people up to finish His house. In this book, we are challenged to abandon spiritual apathy and pursue God’s Kingdom first.
In this text, God promises through the prophet Haggai that the second temple will far surpass the glory of the first. However, because the second temple was smaller and would eventually be destroyed in A.D. 70, we know he was speaking spiritually of the temple that is Jesus Christ.
