All COG members will be reunited under the leadership of Dave Pack by August of 2013. This will allow them all to travel to the Feast of Tabernalces here he can witness to them all at once about his awesomeness.
The next phase of this prophecy is described as taking place 26 days later—on what is the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles (not the Last Great Day). Do not miss the shift forward in timing, and recall that Haggai means “My [God’s] Feast.” Think of this short book as containing a “Feast related” prophecy, but especially in regard to the second chapter. This is one great reason proving the people all return to God’s Church on the 24th day of the sixth month (Elul) of God’s sacred year! (There are other reasons that will be explored later.)
Also note that instead of God solely addressing Zerubbabel and Joshua, He includes the “residue of the people.” (“Residue” is the same Hebrew word as “remnant.”) God now speaks directly to the remnant since all of God’s people are back together, and have been for almost four weeks. As the whole Church is galvanized back into one after a period of separation for decades, certain critical messages must be heard at the Feast. Verse three becomes what should be considered as a summary of God’s instruction to the regathered remnant. (Think of it as a sermon outline for God’s ministers.) God next asks a crucial question that becomes another proof of who the chapter one “houses” are, and how they came out of something much bigger.
