Haggai 2:9 ” ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”

Haggai was a minor prophet that ministered words of encouragement & revival to the Jewish exiles returning from Babylon to find their Temple destroyed. Here Haggai gives promise of greater blessings & reaffirms that the Lord is still with His people. He associates the rebuilding of the Temple with the coming era of the Messiah…God’s anointed One bringing glory, peace, & prosperity. This is confirmed in John 2:19 when Jesus calls Himself the personal embodiment of the Temple…with the ultimate fulfillment of this Scripture coming when the Lord God Almighty & the Lamb become the glorious manifestation of the Temple in the New Jerusalem. (Revelation 21:22)
