Pastor Chuck Swindoll has an illustration about cleanliness. He says when you wear white gloves and play in the mud, you don’t end up with glovey mud! The prophet Haggai might have used different words, but his message is the same: uncleanliness defiles whatever is around. Therefore, unclean people cannot build a holy temple. Haggai’s final two sermons consist of God exhorting his people to come clean with their sins and become a holy nation before him. God also had a specific message for Zerubbabel, the governor. Watch Haggai Field Study 4 to find out what it meant that Zerubbabel was God’s chosen signet ring and how this was to impact the future of God’s sovereign plan not just for the nation of Israel, but the whole world.
