habakkuk s 1 st question why is god not listening
Habakkuk’s 1st Question (Why is God not listening?)
  • How long, O Lord, must I call for help,

But you did not listen?

  • Or cry out to you, “Violence!”

But you did not save?

  • Why do you make me look at injustice?

Why do you tolerate wrong?

Destructions and violence are before me:- conflicts and strife abound

god s answer to habakkuk s complaint
God’s Answer to Habakkuk’s Complaint
  • V.1-5: Look at all the nations and watch and be utterly amazed for I am going to do something in your days/lifetime
  • Look at me now: I am raising up all the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, to help solve your problem.

And God seemed to ask, “ Any more questions, Habakkuk? Do you feel that the

Babylonians will sufficiently take care of the people of Judah?

- The Babylonians are fast, very fast.

- They sweep across the whole earth to seize dwelling places no their own.

- They are fearless.

- Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk.

habakkuk s 2 nd question god s plan to utilize the babylonian army
Habakkuk’s 2nd Question(God’s plan to utilize the Babylonian army?)
  • God’s Sovereignty
  • God’s Holiness

God’s Chosen People Are Currently Numerous and Helpless- like a school of fish with no leaders you have made men (Judah) like fish in the sea, like sea creatures without rulers

  • The Babylonians are destructive – and with Judah being like a school of fish, the Babylonians will use hooks and dragnets.
  • Babylonians’ Ambition Rejoices and is Glad- most fisherman catch fish for the joy of pulling that fish in.
chapter 2 the lord answers
Chapter 2: The Lord Answers
  • Babylon will be destroyed

Revelation waits its appointed time

It speaks of the end

It will be proven right at the end

It may seem long but it will come…

not delayed, but on time.

v.4-9: Wine destroys him

Arrogant never rest

Greedy as the grave, death’s never satisfied

Gathers himself all the nation

All of them taunted him with ridicule and scorn


V.4- “But the righteous will live by the faith”, but Babylon will be eliminated and God will restore for all the sin committed

  • Paul said in Romans 12- Do not repay anyone with evil. “It is mine to avenge,” said the Lord/ Vengeance belongs to the Lord. If you feel it is not fair leave it to the Lord.
  • V.20-But the Lord is in His holy temple;

Let all the earth be silent before Him.

chapter 3 habakkuk s confession and prayer
Chapter 3: Habakkuk’s Confession and Prayer
  • God’s Reverent Characters

2: Lord I have heard of your fame

Translation: God knew you all along but I went too far in lost my faith in you

  • Remember God of Jacob During the Exodus From Egypt
  • Renew them in our day- our present day
  • God’s radiance and glory
  • God’s wrath in Egypt
i will put my faith in the lord s sovereignty
I will put my faith in the Lord’s sovereignty

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes in the vines

Though the olive crop fails

and produce no food

Though there are no sheep in the pen

and no cattle in the stalls

Yet I will still rejoice in the Lord

I will be joyful in God my Savior
