GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN

“’Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying: “This people says, ‘The time has not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. 3 Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 ’Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?’ 5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: ’Consider your ways! 6 You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.’ 7 Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Consider your ways! 8 Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,’ says the LORD.”

Haggai 1:2-8

As the days to the Prayer Conference on June 12 draw nearer and nearer, I wonder what each of us is expecting when the day finally arrives? What is the motive behind our attendance? What is the intent of all our spiritual exercises? Are we finding ourselves in the “hamster-wheel” dilemma of much activity and no progress? Or conversely, have we drifted away?


Haggai Chapter 1 is like a sharp blow of the trumpet: Incline your heart and listen to HIM.


Verse 2:Thus speaks the LORD of hosts, saying: ‘This people says, “The time has not come, the time that the LORD’s house should be built.”'"


Yikes! These people, like so many of us, were comfortable ignoring the state of HIS Bride, the Church of JESUS CHRIST. We convince ourselves that it’s not time to get serious, it’s not time to focus on the Kingdom. We say, “let me concentrate on my husband and children first, let me focus on my grandchildren, let me apply myself to a successful career first...let me pursue my life, live my dreams.... It’s not time to build the Kingdom of GOD; it’s not time to build my relationship with HIM....”


Verse 5: Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: ’Consider your ways!’”


HE repeats it in verse 7:


Consider. Your. Ways.
Stop. Think. Beware.


Beloved family, please take time today, this week, to re-examine the direction of your life.


Consider your ways,” HOLY SPIRIT whispers gently to us. It’s a loving warning and appeal from Heaven.


Verse 8: “’Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,’ says the LORD.”


Hallelujah!!!!


  1. Go up to the mountains” means to take your walk deeper into HIM. Do whatever it takes!!! Fast, pray, hear and obey. Remember, to climb a mountain is high (to backslide is so, so easy)!


  1. Bring wood” means to fetch what HE gives you in the secret place and bring it to daily life. Apply it. Minister to HIS people. Love on them, forgive them (especially the unlovable and the unforgivable). Pray for the persecuted brethren as we have been instructed.


  1. HE will take pleasure in it and HE will be glorified!!!!!


Amen.
