Wesley's Notes for Habakkuk 2:2


2:2 Upon tables - What was of publick concern, and therefore to be published, was anciently written or engraven upon tables, smooth stones, or wood, and then hung up in a publick place to be read. May run - That none may need to stop, but every one may plainly and clearly discern what is written.

    God has been faithful with his promise so i have no choice than to roll along with him cos he has said it that heaven and earth shall pass away but my word will surely come to pass...
  • Samuel Agyapong for verse 3
    Waiting, is not an easy task but while waiting one must be faithfull on to him.The moment you turn away from him he will show up.remember adam and eve story the moment they eat the apple God was there to visit them. Please wait.
  • Pastor Celestine Ossaite for verse 3
    God reveal what we will become through our dreams so that we will focus on it,but the time is not now but many years to come.just like Joseph in the Bible who saw a very big dream but suffered many years even in prison before the dream come to pass.
  • Nelson N.
    My God is always faithful to His promises. It must surely come to pass. I have not seen any part of the scripture that says the word God came to fail.
  • This verse speaks volumes to what i am going through right now. Not sure how many here have recieved actual and true visions from God. But sometimes the appointed time is alot longer than any man woman would ever hope for even thier worst enemy. To all those who have whatever it was it will come to pass. Been three years plus for me now but i know when our lord speaks he follows through.
