John's comment about verse 6 on 3/05/2013, 5:45pm...

I know the scripture and there are plenty of wealthy people who do not believe or acknowledge GOD. Yet they continue to prosper. I believe this scripture says a person can do all hard work yet, he will never be content- meaning satisfied. Satisfy also means to pay or compensate; doing a great job and feeling satisfied far outweighs doing a bad job and getting paid.

Matthew 6:33, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

How much do you know of GOD in your life?

 


Steven Douglas's comment about verse 6 on 2/09/2013, 12:55am...

Haggai 1:6 describes the systems of any society that disobeys Deuteronomy 25:15 and Leviticus 19:35 (just weights and just measures). When money is debased, as it has been in all countries and throughout recorded history, and is now happening all over the world, those who sow much (gross) bring in little (net). Those who eat are not satisfied, and those who earn wages earn them only to put them into a bag full of holes. Jesus' instruction to "be content with your wages" is made difficult when the value of those wages are continuously and invisibly siphoned away, only to be given to others without the wage earner's knowledge or consent.

God is telling Haggai, I believe, that our house is His house, the time is short for us, all, to recognize that and act accordingly. This should be adhered to, time to close your "house" to outside world and open your house to God. He will Always be there for you/us.

Haggai 1 is so touching and I believe when God was speaking to Haggai, he had seen the wickedness of the Israelites. Most of us we think of ourselves and concentrate on our lives, only forgetting that there is God and it's all about God. And Haggai is saying, letís keep away from sin for our body is the temple of the Most High so preparing God a HOUSE IS TO REMAIN CLEAN; FOR GOD DOES NOT STAY IN A DIRTY PLACE.

My thought on Haggai verse 6, you must put God first in all things when you plant ask him to help grow in my walk with him I think I am on the right track but could help me out and with this verse it something to think about. Thanks...Joyce

Living in the 21st century, Haggai 1 is a warning to all of us. We are spending less time in seeking the Lord, reading His word, and doing His command. We are too busy doing things for our own, accumulating wealth, garnering education, position but there is still something lacking and that is our relationship with our Maker, our Redeemer and Friend. Let us wake up and listen to the WARNING of HAGGAI 1.

 


John's comment on 11/27/2012, 1:15pm...

It actually clearly shows that, we may attempt to satisfy ourselves but we should build the house of God. It makes me respect more than the statehouse.

Our \\\"GOD\\\" is an awesome GOD. On June 24, 2012, my son was appointed Pastor of our church. On Sunday, August 19, 2012, he preached a sermon on Haggai 1. Subject: The People said,\\\"Now Is Not The Time. Sub-Subject: The LORD said, \\\"Consider Your Ways.\\\" Looking at verses 14 & 15. My son stirred up the spirit of the people. As it was on the four and twentieth day of the sixth month that he was appointed. Two months after the appointment. If we put GOD first in everything we do, all other things will fall in order. As our people have the mind to work. Praise GOD.

Just a thought about myself also if gods not in it everything will be in vain. Self pleasure.

 


Sister camille's comment on 1/05/2012, 5:06pm...

God never send His Prophets to tell you something Good, He send out a message of waring before destruction. Haggai is pleading with the people to build up human temples; that will do the work of the Lord. A two fold question was ask? Who has seen the first Church in it's Glory? and why do you think of it being a little matter? The two olive trees that is in the most Holy Place. repersents The Old and The New testament; showing us history from the old looking foward to the future. There is work to be done! is there oil in your lamps? So let's build up houses for God can dwell in.

 


Sis. Bonnie's comment on 11/30/2011, 3:25am...

'GOD' is a good 'GOD' that He will not leave us ignorant to go about our way and not consider reproof, right now I repent unto the 'LORD' and beseech HIS FORGIVENESS that I may be a sweet savor unto His nostrils, I thank you for the word that came unto me this morning 'LORD", AMEN

The Book of Haggai is very intresting. it give me courag and hope to life

 


Neal's comment on 4/05/2011, 7:04am...

This passage teaches me that god is a giving and patient god, but he is also a jealous god; he provides, but he wants gratitude. He desires for his people to be faithful to him. To worship him.

 


Dee's comment on 1/30/2011, 9:19pm...

My pastor ministered to us from this chapter and it is amazing how the word is real then and now. I am once again encouraged to turn from unfruitful ways and follow God with my entire existence. I am nothing without Him, I have nothing without Him.

 


Sabrina's comment on 5/03/2010, 6:39pm...

Haggai is a faith and courage messager of the Lord.
