The sermons of Moses teach about our response to Gods grace and about apostasy, about those who no longer respond to Gods grace. Moses preached on tithing, showing God is first in our life and of giving to the poor. He preached a very strong message on how God forbids the occult, fortunetelling, communicating with the dead, and using black magic. He also told them about the Prophet Priest, and King who would one day come and save them.
Hopelessness is a huge problem in our world, but Gods desire is for the hope He has planted within us to lead us to faith and a personal relationship with Him. God invites us to taste and see that He is goodto follow Him in obedience and trust His Word. Those who trust in God will be blessed as they grow strong in hope and faith as they experience Gods faithfulness to provide, protect, and deliver them.
Haggai preached to the first group of exiles returning to Jerusalem. Because of the hostility, the people of Judah stopped rebuilding the temple and were building their own homes. Give careful thought to your ways, Haggai preached. He cried out for Gods people to remember their priorities, regain proper perspective, be motivated to continue, and stop being afraid. His words remind us of our need to stay focused on Gods mission and His will for our lives.
