Dr. Don G. Pickney begins the second part of this series with some understanding of how Biblical Prophecy works as God uses certain “clues” within a “connective” scripture to keep us moving forward in progressive revelation of His plan and purpose for His sovereign future events.
In this series, as it continues you will learn seven vital keys to following and understanding God's prophetic scriptures. You will learn about “connective” scripture as it relates to interpretation of God’s Word. And you will learn more about the greatest prophecy in the Bible, set to come to pass at the end of this age, and is currently in progress of fulfillment. It is called by Isaiah the prophet, “The Day of Jehovah Tsaba.” By using the principles of Bible interpretation, you will see The Day of Jehovah Tsaba as it surfaces over and over again in scripture to reveal its origin, it purpose, and the details of how it will come to pass. Pastor Don continues the journey of taking us from a special "covenant" cut by God with Abraham, and how it relates to things happening at this very time today, and is currently unfolding right before our eyes.
In this second teaching of this series, you will see the clues that surface in the book of Haggai that take us to the next step of His important prophecy relating to God’s plan to shake all nations for His special elect people, the body of Christ.
Haggai 2:5-9 LITV “With the Word by whom I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit stands among you; do not fear. (6) For so says Jehovah of Hosts (Jehovah Tsaba): Yet once more, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. (7) And I will shake all the nations; and the desire of all nations shall come. And I will fill this house with glory, says Jehovah of Hosts (Jehovah Tsaba). (8) The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine, says Jehovah of Hosts (Jehovah Tsaba). (9) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than that of the former, says Jehovah of Hosts (Jehovah Tsaba). And in this place I will give peace, says Jehovah of Hosts (Jehovah Tsaba).”
The “words of the covenant” Haggai was speaking of, of course, were these words:
Genesis 15:13-14 MSG “GOD said to Abram, "Know this: your descendants will live as outsiders in a land not theirs; they'll be enslaved and beaten down for 400 years. (14) Then I'll punish their slave masters; your offspring will march out of there loaded with plunder.”
In keeping with the “words of covenant” God made with Abraham, as we see this Biblical prophecy unfold at Israel’s 400 year mark of slavery in Egypt, Moses is confronted by God at the “burning bush.” Notice that God references His promise to Abraham and then speaks of the “plunder referenced in His covenant words:
Exodus 2:23-25 NLT “(400) Years passed, and the king of Egypt died. But the Israelites continued to groan under their burden of slavery… (24) God heard their groaning, and He remembered His covenant promise to Abraham... (25) He looked down on the people of Israel and knew it was time to act.”
Get ready in this teaching for much prophetic revelation of what God is currently doing in the earth for His people, the Church!
