Messianic Prophecies: Haggai 2: 6-8

 

Continuing our Advent look at Messianic prophecies for this year, a series which we began in Advent 2011 and continued in 2102 and 2013, the earlier posts of the series may be read here, here, here ,here, here, here, here, here , here here, here, here, here , here, here, here  and here, we come to Haggai 2: 6-8 :

[6] The word that I covenanted with you when you came out of the land of Egypt: and my spirit shall be in the midst of you: fear not.

[7] For thus saith the Lord of hosts: Yet one little while, and I will move the heaven and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land.

[8] And I will move all nations: AND THE DESIRED OF ALL NATIONS SHALL COME: and I will fill this house with glory: saith the Lord of hosts.  

Saint Augustine reveals Who this passage refers to: 

 

There remain three minor prophets, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, who prophesied at the close of the captivity.  Of these Haggai more openly prophesies of Christ and the Church thus briefly:  “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Yet one little while, and I will shake the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will move all nations, and the desired of all nations shall come.” The fulfillment of this prophecy is in part already seen, and in part hoped for in the end.  For He moved the heaven by the testimony of the angels and the stars, when Christ became incarnate.  He moved the earth by the great miracle of His birth of the virgin.  He moved the sea and the dry land, when Christ was  proclaimed both in the isles and in the whole world.  So we see all nations moved to the faith; and the fulfillment of what follows, “And the desired of all nations shall come,” is looked for at His last coming.  For ere men can desire and and wait for Him, they must believe and love Him.
