(SERMON) Haggai 2.1-9 Strength, Presence, Peace

In his second sermon Haggai gives strong words of encouragement to a people who are doubting, anxious, and disillusioned.  He calls on them to remember who their God is and "be strong", he tells them that this strength comes through knowing that through it all the God of the universe is right there among them, His Spirit is present.  Finally, Haggai calls on them to recognise that God will come in glory to Jerusalem and build a better Temple which will bring total peace - that Temple is Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and it is to Him we must turn.
