The Best Is yet to Come (2 of 2)
by Jerry Vines
I started in Haggai last week and I brought the first part of the message. I want to continue in the second chapter tonight.

Haggai: The Law of the Harvest (18 of 20) by
Before you can appreciate Haggai's message, you need to understand a principle that many find a bit foreign to our world. I will call it the Law of the Harvest. Simply put, the Law of the Harvest says ''Whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.'' In other words, life has consequences...
What Time Is It?
by Jerry Watts
(READ Haggai) In 1969 a rock album entitled ''The Chicago Transit Authority'' was released with huge success. One of the songs on that album was entitled ''Does anybody really know what time it is.''

by Jerry Branch
The Israelites had their hope in the coming of the Messiah to the Lord's temple, but for you and me today, the ultimate hope and fulfillment of the Biblical Promise of Messiah's coming is when the Lord, Jesus Christ returns in power at the end of the age to claim His Bride, the Church. AND... when Jesus comes again, He will completely and perfectly remodel the church in whose work we are working on and what...
