I am Habakkuk the prophet. And this is the message that the Lord gave me.
Habakkuk Complains to the Lord
Our Lord, how long must I beg for your help before you listen? How long before you save us from all this violence? Why do you make me watch such terrible injustice? Why do you allow violence, lawlessness, crime, and cruelty to spread everywhere? Laws cannot be enforced; justice is always the loser; criminals crowd out honest people and twist the laws around.
The Lord Answers Habakkuk
Look and be amazed at what’s happening among the nations! Even if you were told, you would never believe what’s taking place now.
We think the prophet wrote these words about 600 years before Jesus was born and yet they sound like they were written in 2016!
From the day that Adam and Eve stood beneath the TREE and were deceived to believe that God did not really mean what He had said and that He did not see them as they sinned, the world has been filled with violence, lawlessness, crime and cruelty!
Habakkuk would have found today's world familiar because it is the same as "laws cannot be enforced; justice is always the loser; criminals crowd out honest people and twist the laws around."
But God assured Habakkuk that He is orchestrating world events to serve His purposes! And you can rest assured that God is doing the same today!
"Lord Jesus, thank you for the blessed assurance that You are now working among the nations and that You will soon return to take Your people home! Praise Your Name forever. Amen!"
