HABAKUK

HABAKKUK HEARD GOD’S CURSES OF WOE ON THE ENEMY AND HE TREMBLED

  • HE PRAYED FOR REVIVAL AND FOR MERCY
  • HE SAW GOD AS LIGHTINING, THUNDER, AND FIRE
  • HE REMEMBERED HOW GOD WONDERFULLY RESCUED HIS PEOPLE FROM EGYPT AND TOOK THEM THROUGH THE WILDERNESS TO THE PROMISED LAND
  • HE NOW RECEIVED COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE THAT GOD WOULD RESCUE HIS PEOPLE
  • GOD WILL RESCUE HIS PEOPLE AND CONFIRM HIS COVENANT WITH THEM
  • HIS GLORY WOULD COVER THE EARTH AS THE WATERS COVERS THE SEA
  • HIS PRAISE WILL ALSO FILL THE EARTH
  • WE EASILY FORGET THAT THE SAME LIGHT AND WARMTH THAT BLESSES THE EARTH COMES FROM THE SUN, WHICH IS A BALL OF FIRE THAT CAN CONSUME THE WHOLE EARTH IN A MOMENT
  • GOD IS CAPABLE OF TERRIFYING AND DESTROYING THOSE WHO OPPOSE HIM
  • GOD CAN STRIKE DOWN HIS ENEMIES WITH PLAGUES, LIKE HE STRUCK EGYPT WITH 10 PLAGUES
  • GOD CAN STRIKE DOWN HIS ENEMIES WITH PESTILENCE
  • GOD IS ALL LOVING BUT ALSO ALL POWERFUL AND MIGHTY
  • GOD’S VERY PRESENCE ON EARTH WILL SHAKE IT
  • THE NATIONS WILL TREMBLE AT HIS PRESENCE
  • WHEN GOD APPEARED AT THE RED SEA IT SKIPPED AWAY PSALM 114
  • GOD WILL DESTROY HIS ENEMIES AND DELIVER HIS PEOPLE
  • GOD IS SEEN BY HABAKKUK AS A THUNDERING GIANT, WALKING THROUGH THE EARTH
  • THOSE WHO SEEK TO DESTROY THE EARTH AND GOD’S PEOPLE WILL PANIC AND START TO DESTROY EACH OTHER
  • THESE BANDITS WHO REJOICE OVER THE EARTH SUFFERING OF THEIR VICTIMS WILL SOON SUFFER GOD’S WRATH
  • GOD HAS DONE IT BEFORE, HE ONCE TOOK HIS PEOPLE OVER THE RED SEA AND BURIED THEIR ENEMIES IN A GRAVE FILLED WITH WATER
  • WE MUST ASK GOD TO DISPLAY HIS POWER AGAIN ON EARTH AT THIS TIME
  • WE MUST EXPECT THE AWESOME DISPLAY OF HIS POWER AS WE PRAY
  • WE MUST NOT BE LIKE HABAKKUK WHO PRAYED FOR GOD’S PRESENCE, BUT WAS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE WHEN HE SAW GOD’S POWER.
  • HE WAS HOWEVER RELEAVED THAT GOD ANSWERED HIS PRAYERS
  • IN HIS PROPHETIC MINISTRY HE SAID HE WOULD WAIT PATIENTLY FOR GOD’S JUDGEMENT TO BE RELEASED ON THE ENEMIES OF PEACE IN JUDAH
  • HE KNEW THAT DAY THAT WOULD BE FILLED WITH DESTRUCTION OF THE WICKED WAS COMING
  • HE KNEW IT WOULD BE A DAY OF VICTORY AND VINDICATION FOR GOD’S PEOPLE
  • GOD DID IT BEFORE IN THE PAST AND HE CAN STILL DO IT TODAY AMEN
  • GOD WOULD RENEW THOSE DAYS OF WRATH ON HIS ENEMIES AND RELEASE MERCY AND REVIVAL ON HIS CHURCH AS WE PRAY
  • EVEN THOUGH HABAKKUK WAS SHOCKED HIS FAITH WAS REVIVED
  • HABAKKUK OUTLINED THE WORST POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF EVIL THAT CAN HAPPEN ON EARTH
  • COMPLETE FAILURE OF MEAT AND CROPS I.E GRAIN, OLIVES, FIGS, GRAPES, SHEEP AND CATTLE ON WHICH THE NATIONS DEPEND FOR FOOD CANNOT TAKE AWAY HIS TRUST IN GOD
  • HE REALISED THAT INNER PEACE DID NOT DEPEND ON OUTWARD PROSPERITY
  • NOT ONLY WOULD HABAKKUK ENDURE IN HOUR OF DISTRESS, HE WOULD REJOICE IN THE LORD AND PRAISE HIM AND REMAIN JOYFUL
  • MANY PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO BUY JOY BUT IT CAN ONLY BE FOUND IN AN INTIMATE AND PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • THOSE IN INTIMATE, PERSONNAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD CAN ALWAYS SMILE IN THE WORST CIRCUMSTANCES
  • GOD IS OUR UNFAILING SOURCE OF STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE, SATISFACTION AND CONTENTMENT
  • JUST LIKE A SPRINGBOK CAN JUMP THROUGH A DARK FOREST AND WALK ON HIGH MOUNTAINS SO CAN WE IF TRUST IN GOD
  • WHEN HABAKKUK STARTED TO PROPHESY IN CHAPTER ONE HE WAS DEPRESSED
  • DESTRUCTION , VIOLENCE , STRIFE, CONFLICT AND IN JUSTICE AND WICKEDNESS WERE ALL HE COULD SEE
  • BUT HE CRIED OUT TO GOD AND GOD ANSWERED
  • THE LORD ANSWERED HIS COMPLAINT AND LIFTED HIM UP FROM THE DEPTH AND SET HIS FEET UPON A ROCK, HALLELUYAH
  • HABAKKUK STARTED IN THE PIT, BUT HE ENDED ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP
  • GOD DIRECTED HABAKKUK THROUGH THE DIALOGUE IN WHICH HE REVEALED HIS PLANS FOR THE DISCIPLINE OF JUDAH AND THE JUDGEMENT OF BABYLON
  • IN CHAPTER GOD SHOWED HIM WHY BABYLON WOULD BE CURSED WITH MANY “WOES”
  • FINALLY GOD REVEALED HIMSELF IN HIS GLORY AND POWER TO THE PROPHET
  • THE PROPHETS COMPLAINTS TURNED TO CONFIDENCE IN GOD
  • HE STARTED TO PRAISE GOD AS HIS FEAR TURNED TO FAITH
  • HABAKKUK WAS TRANSFORMED FROM A SOUR, MURMURING PROPHET TO A SECURE JOYOUS PREACHER FULL OF GOD’S BLESSING
  • THE JUST, THE UPRIGHT, PRAYERFUL, GOD SEEKING VICTORIUS CHRISTIAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH
  • 1 JOHN 5:4 YES FAITH IS OUR VICTORY AT THESE END TIMES
