    Verse 13~Jehovah God reassured the people that he was there for them. He wanted to instill confidence in them so that they could carry out the work.
  • A disciple
    "This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built... Consider your ways." NOW in this present time, while we're here; NOW with deceitful and treacherous enemies working against us; NOW is the time to be holy and work and build the House of God. We do not wait till heaven to become holy! If we are not fit for His presence when He comes, we will only have shame.

    Verse 5- Jehovah God is so loving and patient in how he wants us to really think about what we are doing. Sometimes we can forget our priorities and we should be grateful for his patience and reminders.
  • BSP
    Verse 6 shows that we need Jehovah God’s blessing in our lives. We can only enjoy any material things we have because God allows us to exist and find pleasure in different things. Our gratitude and knowledge of this fact should move us to put spiritual interests first.
  • Anne
    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.
  • Irene123
    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.
  • John McGrew
    Its our common body, Christ's body, the church which is the temple of the spirit. "Your"-(second person plural); "body"-(singular.)
  • 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.
  • IjeomaOkonkwo
    We must always obey God,and His true prophets.We must learn to do the things of God first,like paying our tithes,vowa,offerings.In short,we should always seek the things of God,and His righteousness Matthew 6:33
  • Sherrell
    ONE WORD:CONSECRATION
  • Ero Evelyn Agi
    Let us obey God completely and he will be pleased with us. He will perfect all things in our lives when we give priority to his work.
  • Onalenna
    seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness, let us do his ways ,lets live a sacrificing lives unto our lord Jesus Christ
  • Blessed
    WHEN GOD TELL YOU TO DO SOMETHING do it and don 't let yourself backslide.
  • Marvin
    It 's similar to the way some of us are now, we forget about GOD who brought us out of terrible situations, sickness desease death hunger etc. So as in Haggai the prophet let us return back to GOD that we may grow and put him first in our lives. It is he who made us and not we ourselves, praise GOD.
  • Nicola for verse 2
    Sometimes we are busy with our own affairs that we forget or place less emphasis on the things we should prioritize eg our relationship with God or to even tell somebody about the gospel of truth.
  • Junior for verse 6
    This passage is truly real and I personally feel guilty and convicted for relegating God to come 2nd best in my life. It 's my sincere prayer that i return back to his righteous ways and serve him in Truth and spirit.
  • M
    Solomon said that it was all is vanity because he realize that all the things stuff and junk that man have and get is not as important as serving and doing the will of GOD or obeying GOD, when GOD tells us that HE want something done HE want it done just as HE tell us to do it, .we can work 24 7 and not gain anything until we obey GOD, that is why we throw away on our wages and put hole in our pockets as soon as we receive it, it 's gone we never have enough or we are so comfortable in our houses that we forget about serving GOD like we should, we have to line with GOD HE does not have to line up with us.
  • Diann brown
    i know haggai.was a rightous man , he believe in the spirit before he comsult with anybody or with the holy spirit. the lord god almighty was always in his priority.
  • UCHE AGHANWA
    Matthew 21:12-13..."My Father's house shall be called a house of prayer". Think of it. Makes me feel guilty for not having done much for the Lord's house.Little wonder then people struggle so much with little or nothing to show for it.God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him...Hebrews 11:6.
  • Tsango
    We need to take this screptures with understanding & what we going throu in help of the Holly spirit. In luke 1:45. We beleive what God has said and do. It worked for me. God bless you.
  • Angel
    We in todays society have neglected the house of the Lord by playing the "game" of Christianity but acting as Christians by following the teachings of Jesus. We are to be separate from the world meaning we shouldn't act like the world for it we act like the world then how will the world know we are different? We shouldn't use the same foul language, the same behavior whether it be to react with anger, bitterness or strife or following in the same sexual paths as the world or any other deviant behavior. We should be willing to take critism and even being mocked for we are not above our master, Jesus, who was mocked etc.

    We have also stopped teaching properly in the churches and have not spoken of the Holy Spirit properly who is our power source to God and leads us in our daily lives and reveals the scriptures to us. We have not spoken of hell and the consequences of sin nor taught the proper message of the gospel of grace. Instead of proper teaching we have gone more social and pleasing words to tickle the ears of mankind. Is it no wonder people are turning from the church/body of Christ to the world?
  • Celest
    I believe God is saying that whatever it is he has told us to do, we must do it in order for our lives to prosper in the way we hope for. Maybe we're putting off tithing or studying the Word regularly, or going to church, or writing a book, or starting a bible study class, or whatever to build his house. God does not enlist spectators. He expects us to participate in building his church. Once we do that, it doesn't matter what our paycheck says we have, we'll have plenty. And to the comment that there are many who don't believe in God who get blessed. Well, the Devil blesses his people with earthly wealth also. The real difference between God's blessings and Satan's is that God's blessings are attached to eternal life. The Devils blessings are attached to death in a burning pit of fire. Hope this helps.
  • Muema George
    I don't agree with @5.45, the wealth may have much but deep down they are suffering with rage in their heart and soul, look at King Solomon with all wealth he ended up saying it is all vanity, chase after wind, if you read Jeremiah 17.11 and many others you will understand and or appreciate the above verse, i guess.
  • 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.
  • Stuart
    Matthew 6:33, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
  • Haydie trinquite
    How much do you know of GOD in your life?
  • Steven Douglas for verse 6
    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.
  • B Mn
    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.
  • ESTHER
    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, let’s 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.
  • Joyce Kennell for verse 6
    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
