Haggai 2:23 ” On that day, declares the Lord Almighty, I will take you, My servant Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, declares the Lord, and I will make you like My signet ring, for I have chosen you, declares the Lord Almighty.”

Zerubbabel led the first group of dispirited Jewish exiles back to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity. Haggai was the first prophet that ministered to them there. The Word of the Lord had come to Haggai, revealing God’s message to Zerubbabel and the people that Daniel’s prophecy from old was going to take place in the promised rebuilding of the city and the return of His people. (Daniel 9:24-26) As for Zerubbabel, God was selecting him as the chosen one to accomplish this huge task…setting His seal of ownership, pledge, and guarantee on him.
