Plenteous Redemption Podcast
Haggai 1:12-15 (KJV) Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the LORD their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the LORD. Then spake Haggai the LORD'S messenger in the LORD'S message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD. And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
In Judah’s repentance, there were a few key ingredients. First was their decisive obedience to God’s word. They had been rebellious, complacent, disobedient, but they repented of that attitude and made the decision to obey the word of God. But a significant factor in this decision was their sudden fear of the Lord. We should absolutely fear the Lord our God.
Bible truths are often downplayed or altered to be more favorable in our day. When modern-day disciples hear an hard saying from God’s word - they tend to rebuke God and try to set him straight. Rather than allowing the word of God to develop in man a healthy fear of the Lord, modern man expects the Lord to develop a healthy fear of man.
