Text: Habakkuk 2:4-5 There is an amazing correlation between “the proud one” that Habakkuk describes in the fourth verse of the second chapter of his prophecy and Belshazzar, who would fulfill the prophecy some seven decades later. This also correlates with Jeremiah’s prophecy for the length of time Judah would be in captivity to the Babylonians, as well as explaining the recording and waiting mentioned earlier in the chapter.
Text: Habakkuk 1:13-17 Finishing out the first chapter of the prophet’s exchange with Yahweh, we, not only, “see” that he realizes the purity and holiness of the One to Whom he a been complaining, we are, also, able to relate the truths to the importance of our standing to the task of “catching” the people of our very own society, before they are trapped and, forever, lost to the Kingdom.
Text: Habakkuk 1:12 It is almost as though Habakkuk suddenly realizes Who has responded to him and begins to “take stock.” In this single verse, we find, rather densely packed, nine attributes/characteristics of Yahweh God. It is exciting to realize with wonder the majesty of the One Who Loves us so much, as we briefly look at these areas of confidence that the prophet expresses.
Text: Habakkuk 1:5-11 As (so it would seem) Yahweh God responds to Habbabuk’s complaint, we begin to see a reflection of our own current culture, only to realize that, just maybe, the difficulties we are experiencing could be a judgment from the Lord on His rather divided called out assembly. The prophet learns that the Lord will be using a wicked nation to discipline His people. Could this be repeating itself with the Church?
Text: Habakkuk 1:1-4 In much the same way as when we began our series in James, we begin our study in Habakkuk asking the questions: Who was he? When did he live and write? What were the circumstances occasioning his writing? Why do we call him a poet prophet? What does his name mean and why was he named that? Why ask “Why?”
