    HABAKKUK Is prayer warrior . He want to interced and for sins of his country and his people . He is a prophet a seer .Habakkuk is God's friend. God showed him and talked to him about he plans. He loved his town his people. He is suffering for their wrong doing . He has also a way to observe how political leaders or those who detained powers abused the poor people . See chp 1:4 he revealed it

    Verse3: Habakkuk knew that Jehovah God didn’t cause the wrongdoing he saw but he sincerely wanted to know why He allowed it to happen.

    why??, God is such a good father who entertains our questions all the time, though in His sovereignty He is free to answer or not.
  • Tasha
    A very touching book of the Bible! I am reading it in English, Georgian and Azerbaijani (!!!). Habakkuk was a sensitive and passionate man, completely devoted to the Lord. Pouring his heart out, and our Merciful Lord listening intently to the complaints and answering, is what is most striking in this small book of the Bible.
  • A disciple
    To whom much is given, of them will the more be demanded. Sin in Christians is not only worse, but if un-repented of and that one's heart hardened in it; it brings blood guilt of all those whom he was supposed to be a witness of the grace of God; but failed! That was the very reason for the world of the beginning being ultimately destroyed, because of the apostasy and abandoning themselves to sin.

    Betty...sin is sin...believers forgiven...others not.
  • Betty mcintyre
    Are the sins of believers and unbelievers equally offensive to God?
  • A disciple
    "Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous." Everything for which the devil slanders God and accuses His People of, he himself is the one doing those things! The children of the devil can only imagine to satisfy their lust for power and authority by slaughter and oppression; and this is their religion!

    Verse 2: We may feel that God is not listening to our prayers, but we have the assurance that he hears our prayers and he will answer them in due time.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceeds." (1:4) We seek the Lord with all our hearts, and endeavor to let our light shine. We pray for our leaders, and for the good to prevail. We help by our prayers, and by our obedience to walk in truth. But the world around us is set on "another" course!
  • Michael C.
    Israel was told from the beginning, what would happen if they broke covenant with God; but they pushed Him, and pushed Him, with their defiance, and sinning, and whoring after the ways of the heathen, till there was no remedy. Jeremiah wrote, that if God had begun to punish the city which is called by His Name, and His own people; He would certainly also do the same to the nations for their sins.

    This chapter shows that it is not wrong to ask God certain questions.
  • Susie Varela
    Versus 5-11 God replies to Habakkuk. I am going to raise up a people worst then what you see now. God gives to him a description of these people: bitter, hasty,
    thieves, dreadful. They have the ability to move very fast through land
  • Susie Varela
    In versus 1-4 Habakkuk is praying to God about the violence
  • Adele Dodd
    Could this be talking about Is is and Isil. Are Syrians part of Isis' work.
  • Bruce
    The Chaldeans are the Germans they started WW1 and WW2 and will start WW3. They slay nations, God uses them to correct nations Israel, US and Britain. They have forsaken his Law.

    I have see in this Chapter that God want us to be ready to come into the wisdom and to know their are so many people today need to get to know him and call upon the Lord and be save he love us.
  • Steven Stueber for verse 5
    What Time Is it GOD S TIME CLOCK says It s Time to Repent
    Gods way is how he does things He is not blind to what happen around him, just wait and see God is reading each of us thought's as we read these chapter and what we think God dont need us to think for him and what he should or not do.

    I believe this Chapter echos America today - we are the Chaldens. Our militeray dictatorship marching throughout the breadth of the Land forcefully setting up military bases without regard for humanity and acquiring what is not ours.
  • Timothy Wayne George
    Habakkuk is a watchman, and he is crying out to God to do something about the evil that is going on in Judea. Well the Lord is about to use a nation more wicked than them to correct them.

    So it is today, that the Lord will use the wicked people today to correct his people. God is holy, and his eyes too pure to look upon sin. No wonder why when Jesus cried out on the cross my
    God why has thou forsaken me? It was at that time when our sin was placed on the Lord Jesus Christ, that the father had to turn his back on the son. Thank God that Jesus became our propituation. The discipline of the present time is not joyous, but grievous, yet nevertheless it yields the peaciable fruits of righteousness to those who are exercised there by. So God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that who ever believes in him would not perish, but would have eternal life. Jesus is our life, and when we come to him by faith, we will live with him through out eternity in heaven. So the just shall live by faith, and wait on the Lord. For the vision is for the end time, and it shall tarry yet it will speak.
    JESUS uses any means suitable to HIM and FOR HIM to get HIS POINT across.HABAKKUK is making his disapproval known to GOD.HE also expects to be chastised by his HOLY GOD.JESUS is showing me that HE is GOD and i am not.HOW about you?

    lol, that whole section cracks me up. Because he's just like anyone now who's getting burned by someone else. Except he said, he was going to nark everyone out to the Chaldean's and send them to stomp on all of them out!

    He's all saying, how come I'm doing a good job, but you have these guys who are giving you the finger, and ruling them selves. They probably burn insense to their little ponzy schemes from how many suckers it nets into their organization.

    Everyone lies and tons are getting burned by these dudes. So I guess that makes me like, an ant?

    Well guess what, this ant is gonna raise up some Chaldeans to curby all those people who took my saturday morning paper! And take them some dwelling places that actually don't belong to them.

    But Big G Man, I don't want to have my homies ride all over these guys. They will straight up take their bathrooms and coolers! And all their goatsmilk-lite. You said I was special but I still can't get a job because I don't want to turn into a douche like the guys netting up more people to vote for them. Support them and burn us.

    It's the same thing that always happens but it's cool how you can see when you're mad how this is a bullied civilian. Who notices corruption in his government and actually starts a plan to sell all of them out in a big way...
  • Andy Howard for verse 9
    The New World Translation's version of Habakkuk 1:9 reads as follows:

    In its entirety it comes for mere violence. The assembling of their faces is as [the] east wind, and it gathers up captives just like the sand.
