Introduction to Matthew: Haggai 2:1b-9 "Singing, Weeping, Hoping"
Three questions that Haggai gives to the people: 1. Who is left among you that saw the temple in its former glory? (Former glory) 2. How does it look to you now? (Present disappointment) 3. Does it not seem to you like nothing? (Honest comparison)
But now, take courage and work!
What is glory coming back? - Ezekiel 43:1-5
Haggai 2:20-23: - This is future oriented prophecy - v.23 is a New Covenant prophetic pointer - Being fulfilled in Hebrews 12:25-29
What a joy it is for me to serve as the pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church. By God's great grace, along with several other precious brothers and sisters in Christ, we started FCBC, December of 1998.
I did my graduate work at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary...
