Emotional Healing: Temple Teaching from Haggai
Rev. Duane Bemis
I Corinthians 3:16
This verse triggered my mind to search His Word and I wanted to understand God's heart in this matter. The matter that puzzled my heart was how I was to build my temple, or my body, for the Spirit of God. God had directed me to go beyond salvation and come away with Him in this new adventure of truth.
He led this Christian to the shadow of things to come, He led me to the Old Testament prophet Haggai. My journey was to take me deeper into the things of God than I have ever traveled before. I was directed to look at the book of Haggai as my reference on how to build my temple God's way. Salvation, I thought, was all there was. After 15 trips through the Word of God I thought I had a good handle on His truth. Journey with me as God opens a new door for you and me to walk through Are you ready to take this journey with me? Are you ready to build your temple according to God's plans?
Open your bible to the white pages of a seldom preached book, the book of Haggai, which in Hebrew means; "Festive." This book is the third book from the end of the Old Testament.
In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built. Haggai 1:1-2 KJ
Today in most Christian circles you will hear the salvation message preached and you might hear of the need to be healed in our emotions. But in most cases there is no one talking to you about the "why's" of emotional healing from our past and what will this mean to our daily walk with our God. The time is now to build our temple God's way.
Haggai is about to release to the readers his prophetic message sent from God.
