Discussion for Haggai 1

    This chapter reminds me of Matt 6:31 'Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things shall be added to you'. When we put the things of God first, then we shall prosper. I believe that when we neglect to worship God and give of our tithes and offerings we are never satisfied. No matter what we try to achieve it will come to naught without putting God first in our lives.

    V. 11, goes with 2 Chr. 7:13, and MANY others. The eastern, southern states of USA are in a drought, as the western states. Droughts are common to the west; until some wks. ago I had NEVER heard of droughts in the eastern, southern states. Jesus is talking.

    Our bodies is the living temple of God, that's where He wants to dwell. Our. Great need is in Him. If we neglect to take care of ourselves then He will destroy us according to his word. When we separate ourselves from God then we are committing suicide. God desire and intent is to dwell in us through His spirit. That is the spirit of God of Jesus. We are the living temple of the living God.

  • Awakan Olumuyiwa
    The church of God for sure dwells by His gracious mercy. mankind has been taking spiritual commands for granted, but as the case is, my prayer is for us to abide through divine power of God to be able to prove beyond doubts our true love for Him.
