Haggai 2 and Hebrews 12

Haggai 2 and Hebrews 12: On the LAST DAY of the Feast of Tabernacles, the Lord spoke these words to Haggai: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and THE DESIRED OF ALL NATIONS WILL COME, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” 

 Hebrews 12:18: You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.” 22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. 25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

The Lord is pointing us to the LAST DAY of Tabernacles as the fulfillment of these verses as that was the day He spoke the words to Haggai, whose name actually means "Feasts of the Lord". Since that is the meaning of his name, we can see that the Lord is teaching us what the fulfillment of these Feasts will be through Haggai. The Lord chose to speak these words to Haggai on the LAST DAY of Tabernacles, which Haggai thought was significant and recorded for us exactly when these words were spoken to him by the Lord. The verses in Haggai point to the Lord shaking the heavens and the earth, that the desired of all the nations will come to this new tabernacle and the glory will be great. Paul expounds on these verses by adding the mention of a trumpet blast, the heavenly Jerusalem, joyful assembly (the last day of Tabernacles is the most joyous of assemblies of all the Feasts), he mentions the word escape, and the shaking of the heavens (the fallen angels/UFO deception at the time of the Rapture), and consuming fire.
