Lastly, I believe the usage of both these prophets was so that we can learn to discern better the Gospel from false teaching. The same style would eventually sound like a droning. If we tend towards one style I think it is harder to spot heresy within that style. If we are pre-disposed to liking the preacher with the kumbya feeling then I think it becomes easier to accept compromise when it is presented in that manner to us. Same for the opposite. God was completely aware that we would always have a tendency to follow man instead of God. There is still way too much pastor worship going on in the modern church today. It becomes then about personality instead of God. How does someone with over 10,000 people following him like Rob Bell fall off the theological cliff like he did? Pride would be my bet but I am more concerned about the 10,000 people he left behind and whether they would just follow him off the same cliff.

 

After Zechariah and Haggai, God would send Nehemiah. He would have a vision from God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. That vision did not come to pass however until the temple had been rebuilt. People fall of theological cliffs or follow heretical pastors because they are too busy rebuilding the walls while the temple still lies in ruins. They are putting on outreaches, constructing new ministries, and packing the pews while the temple lies in ruins. Same goes for our individual walks. We can be the best dressed, lead   five ministries, and serve on the council but if our temple is lying in ruins -- we are not doing it for God. The walls can wait. The worries of this world can wait. Fix the temple first and watch Him God take care of the rest. After taking 16 years to rebuild the temple, God had Nehemiah complete the rebuilding of all the walls surrounding Jerusalem in just 52 days! When everything is right in the temple -- watch God move! Focus on the message and not the messenger. Amen, glory to God.
