Haggai 2:18-23: The Bride and Bridegroom Jesus’ Marriage

18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it. 19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. 20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, 21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; 22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.

The word “shake” could refer to earthquake, and overthrowing the chariots is describing the time of Passover when Pharaoh’s chariots drown into the sea. This is confirming that the time of Hanukkah is to be merged with the time of Passover, because Kislev 24 is the start of Hanukkah as erev Hanukkah.

Genesis 2 and 3 resembles 23:00 that points to 11:00 on the clock, which is November. This is the time of the apple tree—the fall of mankind vs. Adam and Eve union as Christ and His Bride reunion and love story. 2/3 is the number of redemption, for 2/3 of angels stayed in heaven while 1/3 fell from heaven.
