Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Desire of All Nations
    "I will shake all nations,
    and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations,
    and I will fill this temple with glory,"
    says the LORD of hosts.
    Haggai 2:7
    Jesus is the Desire of All Nations. At the present time, the nations do not look for Jesus; nor is He in their thinking. They do not desire Him. But there is coming a time in the future when the nations will desire Him. The prophet Haggai told the Jews who returned from captivity in Babylon to rebuild the Temple. The Jewish people felt defeated because their present circumstances were not as glorious or as spiritual as they were in the past. Haggai promised them that the Desire of All Nations would come into the Temple that they would build. That prophecy was first fulfilled when Jesus went into the Temple as a 12-year-old boy. But the Jewish people didn’t know that Jesus was their Messiah; they had no desire to accept Him. The Jewish leaders desired political peace, but they refused the inner peace He offered. They desired a Jewish kingdom, but they refused His rule. Jesus was what they desired, but they were blind to His presence. Jesus will come at the end of time. His presence will come into the millennial Temple to fulfill what Haggai said: “I will fill this temple with glory” (Haggai 2:7). One day Jesus, the Desire of All Nations, will come. Then every nation will desire to come worship Him. The glory that Jesus will give to the future Temple, He can bring to your heart today.
    Come, Desire of All Nations. Come into my heart and fill me with the glorious experience of what You can do today. Come, Desire of All Nations. Come in your glorious appearing. Amen.
