What is your spiritual address? Is it based on effort to live there? That is Not Gods plan! He has a different house for you – An Amazing House! You just need to ask one very simple question:
Where do you live?
“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty….. ‘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.” – Haggai 2:6-7, 9
When Jesus came it shook the earth again! When Jesus came it shook All nations! And when Jesus came God filled this house with Glory!
This moving prophecy about the coming of Jesus is yet another in the long line of scripture that attest to the change that Jesus would make on the cross from a law based relationship to one of Peace!
The glory of the former house was in human effort and in human doing! The glory of the house created by Jesus on the cross is in His doing and in His Peace and in His reconciliation of us to Him!
You will never have Peace with God as long as any part of that Peace is based on your effort to keep the law!
That sounds like a strong statement but remember the law was already here long before this passage was written. The law was around and in force long before Jesus came as the means to God and holiness. God knew that the law would never work – He knew it even as He was giving it to Moses.
So why did He give us the law?
1) To make us see our need for Jesus as the propitiation of All our sins.
2) To cause us to need our Abba – Daddy wants to be with you!
3) To allow Him to show His great Love for us!
The greatest problem that Christians have today is using the law unlawfully! Christians today want to use the law for exactly what it is Not created for and sadly as a result lost people see this and Run from anything to do with the Love of God!

Most interesting, loved it! Reminds me of what Christ said to the Pharisees after He said He was the Son of God. “I have come to destroy the temple and in three days I rebuild it.”
I have found that a lot of people misunderstood the prophecies telling of the coming of Christ.
Thinking He would save them from bondage and destroy their enemies. But, looking through and in between these prophecies it perfectly explained just what the Christ was coming to do.
Thank you for sharing Brother and AMEN!
He came to reunite us with God – this is Peace like before the fall of Adam! Perfect unity and a daily walk and relationship with God that Never could have come any other way than the cross and sacrifice of Christ! The more we realize the depth of His Gift and the immensity of His Love – the more or gratefulness turns us toward Him and away from any other desire!
Praise God brother!
Thank you, Brother Bob, for the good word about the Living Word. More about Jesus, that’s what I like to hear!
Thank you sister! He Is the Only One and the Only Way!
Compelling, it makes you challenge the dogma sometimes we base our lives on. Very well written!
Thank you very much sister! I appreciate you sharing!
Yes – so very true – If we are to know Jesus – we are to know The Being who only had Love for a dogma and that ultimate act of His Great Love for us was the cross!
