The Temple in Jerusalem was where Heaven and Earth met and the deep realities of God’s Kingdom were expressed. When the ancient church betrayed the LORD God, the temple was destroyed and they were led into captivity. But the sovereign LORD had a plan to restore His people.
Through Cyrus, He brought His people back to rebuild the Temple. But there were many obstacles – a long and dangerous journey, relentless opposition, and the temptation to choose other priorities. The books of Ezra and Haggai reveal the LORD’s amazing sovereignty over history and how His plan of salvation rescued His people from captivity, foreshadowing the birth of Messiah Jesus!
