In the book, Haggai assures the people that if they would give priority to God’s work, they would prosper. He points out that God has withdrawn His blessing because they are so concerned with building comfortable mansions for themselves.
Over many years the Spirit has quickened this book to me, likening it to Zimbabwe. We have sown much but reaped little, we have earned money that goes into pockets with holes in them. “Why?” says the Lord. Because we have each worried about our own mansions. Oh yes the leadership have built mansions, and so have the Churches. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
We have asked for trumpet calls and prayer meetings which have been hijacked by different groups’ own agendas. A DVD called Let the Sea Resound was circulated nation wide, showing how when in Fiji Christ became central and the Church focussed on Jesus Christ as head, God intervened in the most incredible way in the land and nation.
I believe now is the time for this nation to unite and focus on Jesus Christ being head of His church and the nation. We need to pray for Godly leadership whose desire is to be obedient to God and to serve the people.
It was encouraging to read Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s speech printed last week on this page. It is time for the body of Christ, the Church, to stand together and unite in prayer. – Faith Matters Editorial Team.
