A PROSPEROUS CHURCH
THE WORD says that the church will be glorious. This glorious church is a prosperous church. Why? Prosperity is a part of the glory. Well, remember Haggai talked about the silver is mine and the gold is mine saith the Lord. Now, remember, He brought them forth with silver and gold. In the book of Haggai, the Great I AM is speaking. Haggai 2:5 says, "According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt so my spirit remaineth," or remains we'd say, "among you, fear you not."
Now, remember, a part of the coming out of Egypt was a wealth transfer of silver and gold because even the very children were adorned with silver and gold. They spoiled the Egyptians of their wealth. Verse six says, "For thus saith the Lord of host, yet once it is a little while and I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land." Now notice he's saying I will. So again, that (I will) makes it future. There are some powerful, prosperous things to come. In fact, I believe the best is yet to come. Affirm out loud: “The best is yet to come!” Verse seven says, "And I will shake all nations and the desire," or one translation says, "the desirable things or the riches of all nations shall come." Come where? Well notice, "and I will fill this house with glory saith the Lord of hosts." Which house?
THE HOUSE OF GOD
The house of God, the great I AM is the church. I Timothy 3:15 says; But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. (King James 2000)
Now, remember the prophet Haggai is talking about the last day house. He's not talking about the Temple of Solomon. He's not talking about the Tabernacle of David and he sure-Nuff isn't talking about the Tabernacle of Moses ☺.
Let’s make it plain by a question; When was the book of Haggai written? Good question; Haggai was written about 520 BC. When was King Solomon born? Solomon was born around 1010 BC. To make it simple, Solomon was dead and gone long before Haggai even showed up on the planet, so how could Haggai have been writing about the Temple of Solomon coming in the future? Remember, the prophet generally points toward the future.
The House of God spoken of by Haggai is the last day church! The church is the house of God, the pillar and ground of the Truth. So God is saying, “I'm going to fill this church with glory.” Do you follow me so far? Now, what is this GLORY?
WHAT IS THE GLORY?
Now this glory is not just you running up and down the aisles and hooping in the Holy Ghost. Now listen, the house of God is the church in the last days. Now when He says I'm going to fill this house with glory. He is saying I will fill this church with glory.
Glory means to be endowed with everything good and everything heavy. A part of it (this Glory) is going to be this Great Wealth Transfer. Now I'm not saying that money is everything that gold is everything. We do not covet things like cars, houses, and other material things, but He (God) said, I'm going to fill this house with glory. That glory will manifest material wealth or prosperity. So, like it or not, the wealth is coming to the church. It's time to prepare for Divine prosperity!
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers. 3 John 2
