I have always been a Christian. I was brought up in a Christian home, I had Sunday school every Sunday and Wednesday night church every, well, Wednesday. I went to church camps, I was baptized, and I went to Christian school and even had those corny cartoon illustrations of Bible Stores on tape.

So why is it that I have never fully read the Bible?

You would think being the brought-up Christian I am that I would have. I mean I said I had before. I even told people I have read it thirty times! I was

During the reign of Manasseh God said he had simply had it, judgment was coming, no question, no ands, ifs or buts about it. But then Josiah and brought reform to Judah--ridding the idols and destroying the high-places. But evidently there wasn't any true transformation in the hearts of the Jewish people for after Josiah disregarded the word of the Lord and was killed in pointless battle by Pharaoh Necho II, Judah went right back to their previously evil ways. Jehoahaz, Josiah's son, was evil ...more

Habakkuk is the thirty-fifth book in the Bible. It is inspired by God. Habakkuk is a tale about the prophet Habakkuk and his questioning of God and God's replies. The prophet questions why God allows evil nations to conquer nations that do less evil. The Lord answers by stating that he will judge all nations in time and that it is his decision not ours to choose when the time for judgment will come.

Takes place around 600 B.C. when Nebuchadnezzar is re-establishing the power of Babylon. The Babylonians are used as instruments to bring discipline and judgement on Judah. This was just before the book of Daniel, and somewhere after the book of Esther.

Favorite verse:

And the Lord said to me, "Write my answer on a billboard, large and clear, so that anyone can read it at a glance and rush to tell the others. But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time appro

One of my favourite scriptures: Habakkuk 2: 2-3: Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets,That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time;But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,It will not tarry.

“Behold the proud,His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Bless the name of Jesus!
Another interesting book from the Old Testament ... about the prophet Habakkuk. Habakkuk reminds us that God is our strength, and we should rest in Him, even when calamity strikes.
