Goal of Sermon on Ezra 5—6

Ezra 5:1–6:22 (ESV)

1 Now the prophets, Haggai and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judah and Jerusalem, in the name of the God of Israel who was over them.

Encourage God’s people to know that God their Father is watching over them and is working through the Holy Spirit to fill them with joy, having redeemed them from slavery to sin through the death of his Son Jesus Christ.
