Prophet of Faith
This booklet, last reprinted in 2014, is a reprint from the Bible Study Monthly but now with all six parts in one 48 page booklet. It looks into the prophecy of the musician Habakkuk when he wrote from the days of the kings of Judah to the ultimate deliverance of Israel.
It was foretold to Habakkuk in a day and time when Babylon was a new nation that Babylon would overwhelm them in the way they had feared Assyria in their recent past and that there would be a time of trouble that now is often labelled ‘The Time of the End’ or ‘Armageddon’.
In the booklet a comparison is made between Babylon when it was the main empire of the world to this present evil world; between Babylon glorying in its wealth and brute force to the present elevation of Science to be godlike.
Habakkuk foresaw the great delay in time between his day and many of the events he described. He saw a golden era when Christians would look once more to the second advent of Jesus Christ and the parallel interest for a homeland for the Jews in what used to be called Palestine and today Israel. A process which has been in operation since the 19th Century.
After he saw ‘clouds of trouble’ in many forms including war and disease and that all nations would be gathered to be judged in two phases, the first being the day of preparation. All this set using events from the past such as the crossings of the Red Sea and Jordan and the flood of Noah’s day to give insight as to how events would unfold and what the eventual outcome would be.
Habakkuk saw that all was well with the plan of God and he could rest in the sleep of death till all was fulfilled with the expectation he would see some of the latter events, that Jesus Christ would come with the Christian church.
The promise was given "the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Hab.2:14)
