Habakkuk's Prayer

"Habakkuk's prayer" was that The Lord would again do the great wonders that He did in the past, as in the time of the Exodus - a very Christian prayer, considering the reality of Who the "God of the Exodus" was:

"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ" (1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV).

"A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet"

Habakkuk's description of the LORD of that "before Christ" time as actually a description of Christ (see The God Of The Old Testament and 'Before Abraham Was, I AM'). Moses knew Christ face to face in The Trysting Tent. Abraham and Sarah had Lunch With The LORD - Christ.

That Rock was Christ

"3:1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet [see Prophets] upon Shigionoth. 3:2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy. 3:3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah.

His glory covered the heavens [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above], and the earth was full of his praise. 3:4 And his brightness was as the light [see The Light Of Life]; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. 3:5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. 3:6 He stood, and measured the earth [see The Lord's Plumb Line]: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting. 3:7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: and the curtains of the land of Midian [see Jethro and The Education Of Moses] did tremble.

3:8 Was the LORD [see Christ The Creator and Why Did Christ Put Moses To Death?] displeased against the rivers? was thine anger against the rivers? was thy wrath against the sea, that thou didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots of salvation? 3:9 Thy bow was made quite naked, according to the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah.

Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers. 3:10 The mountains saw thee, and they trembled: the overflowing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high. 3:11 The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear. 3:12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen [see Heath Of The Wilderness] in anger. 3:13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.

3:14 Thou didst strike through with his Staves the head of his villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing was as to devour the poor secretly. 3:15 Thou didst walk through the sea with thine Horses, through the heap of great waters.

3:16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops. 3:17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

3:19 The LORD God is my strength [listen to The Lord God from our Sermons page], and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments." (Habakkuk 3:1-19 KJV)

Fact Finder: When it comes to prophecy, why is the "Old" Testament just as important as the "New" Testament?
