BUILDING GOD A HOUSE
Ezra 4:4 Then the people around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building.
Ezra 4:5 They hired counsellors to work against them and frustrate their plans during the entire reign of Cyrus king of Persia and down to the reign of Darius king of Persia.
Hag 1:2 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "These people say, 'The time has not yet come for the Lord's house to be built.'" 3 Then the word of the LORD came through the prophet Haggai:
Hag 1:8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build the house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored," says the LORD.
Hag 1:13-14 Then Haggai, the Lord's messenger, gave this message of the LORD to the people: "I am with you," declares the LORD. So the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and the spirit of the whole of the people. They came and began to work on the house of the LORD Almighty, their God,
Hag 2:9 'The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the LORD Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the LORD Almighty."
