Haggai told the people that they were unclean and that their works were also unclean. The people did as they thought was right, much as we do today, and that they could go to heaven by the works that they did. God demands obedience and faith, and then there will be works. But, no man can do good works without total faith in God.

The Names of God, Lesson 17, focuses on the purpose of the introduction of the name of YHWH as a bridge between God and man, presented for man to see and understand God from his human viewpoint but updating his thinking to see things from the divine viewpoint. YHWH is that viewpoint changing name that will always be the correct way to view and understand the character and actions of God toward mankind. HEMET/EMET is introduced as a descriptor of YHWH - communicating the aspect of YHWH that reflect the reliability and stability of YHWH in His faithfulness, loyalty, and integrity, and fidelity to those He covenants with.
The true idea of a blessing is one that has been lost in our age and culture. It is left as a linguistic nicety, a courtesy, an open ended wish for something good. But we fail to understand the depth and power of the blessing and so rob it of both its innate power AND our appreciation of its beauty and declarative force to convey the true power of God to do good to those who love Him. Before we can appreciate the wonder of Abram being blessed by Melchizedek, we need to understand just what a blessing is, and what it conveys. And maybe, we might even learn to recapture the awesome gift of blessing.

What percentage does Jesus take up in your day-to-day living? How often do you think of him, talk with him, seek his presence, or seek his friendship during the day? My guess is not nearly enough. Today we will look at what is, in reality, a binary choice: Either: "I'm all in, Jesus!" or "You are just not that important to me, Jesus." Tune in to find out what this looks like for you.
