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!
