Summary: A Message on Tithing I dreamed that I was observing and then I was reading the message Bible. I was reading in Malachi about tithing. I was then examining between the testaments. I was comparing it to my Message Bible. I knew that it was the same.

Recording His Vision

Haggai 1:1-7

1 In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,

2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built.

3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes. {with holes: Heb. pierced through}

7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

Pr 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

I am entitling this today: Recording His vision

According to Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish:

As a church we need to make sure that we are a people of vision.

When we are a people of vision there will be restoration.

Where there is vision (His Vision) the people will live.

If you want to stay happy in your walk of faith do what Jesus shows us that we need to do.

Recording His vision

What kind of vision do you have for your own personal life?

Haggai had a vision for the people this morning.

With the Babylonian exile in the past, Gods people had returned to their homeland with full intentions of rebuilding the temple.

After building the foundation their work came to a screeching halt.

The book of Haggai records the unwillingness of the returned exiles to build.

Hag 1:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built.

Unbelief never fails in arguments and always has the capital defect of leaving God out.

The religious argument was that the seventy years of captivity was not yet expired, so the building of the temple should wait.

An excuse they had was they did not have the king’s permission.

Hag 1:3 Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,

The phrase Then came the word of the LORD, this was by design by the Holy Spirit to let the people know the severity of their situation and the depth of their sin.

God raised up a man in the generation that they were in that was not going to be ashamed of what “Thus saith the Lord.”

Hag 1:4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

The question, Is it time for you, has the emphasis on the pronoun you…

It is used in derision as the phrase, this people say, in verse two, instead of my people.

The phrase “O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses,” has the Holy Spirit comparing their houses with His house.

The comparison is not very favorable towards the people.
