Throughout history, there has always been a small group that emerges calling for a spirit of restoration. Verses 20-22 of Haggai chapter 2,  are the most relevant for today's timing:
   "And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, speak to Zerubbabel Governors of Judea, saying, 'I will shake the heavens and the earth; I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms."


   Revolutions as we have seen around the world in recent years are always terrible. Just turn on the evening news! We read in Haggai about heaven and earth shaking, the destruction of kingdoms, and catastrophes that have affected every era, land, and people. Such revolutions that Haggai speaks of comes from the existence and prevalence of severe moral decline, just as we see the same in our present day. Haggai reminds us that God  regulates the temporalities of man according to his moral character. This fact will never change!

  Today, marriage is being defined between a man and man, a woman and woman, and transgender lifestyles are becoming the acceptable norm. Children in our public schools are even being required to celebrate transgender day, and being encouraged to come to school dressed like the opposite sex. Think on the relevance of these words, "Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their sight!…" Never in recent history have these words reverberated throughout our culture as in our current time!
