Not long after work had started on the Temple, many Jews got involved in building their own homes, and lost interest in the Temple. Others were feeling discouraged and defeated due to the constant opposition and attacks of their enemies. It was at this time that God raised up Haggai and Zechariah to prophesy unto them. Whenever God begins a fresh work among His people, He begins it by His Word. Please open your Bible to Ezra chapter five, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
