    Haggai 2:3- This text contains the very essence of how far our human aspirations can go.Much as the ancient temple was built with magnificence it turned to vanity (what later the very king,king Solomon himself, who built it said in Ecclesiastes) .The ancient temple was beaten down to ruins,never to attain her glory again.The lord now requires a place in our heart to be His holy habitation.

    For me the book haggai is calling us to repent from our wrong doing,God who is holy can 't behold the sins of his convenant children any longer.so we need to repent and turn back to God That we light live in peace with hum.

    Chapter 2 asked us a question Will we become clean so God can bless us? God will shake things up and cast things down if we Truly serve Him. Our enemies will be utterly destroyed before our eyes. Nothing can stand in the present of God especially when a "whole lot of shaking " is going on. He said YOU be HOLY for I AM HOLY! Let 's not touch any dead stuff in our life, but remain clean and receive God 's Love, Peace and sanctity.
