Speaker: Lukus Counterman - There are no easy answers to be found in Habakkuk. He treats issues that are profound and complex, requiring serious prayer, thoughtful reflection, and persistent faith. The outer world with its evil conduct and wicked affairs remained the same; Habakkuk’s circumstances didn’t change. But the prophet turned to praise the Lord because he had heard God’s voice. He knew the ultimate outcome of history and was determined to rejoice in the saving power and strength of God. In the end God may not change your circumstances, but he can change you to meet the circumstances. Even in the face of relentless pain, you can be resolved to praise God.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - It seems at last the struggles of Habakkuk have come to some resolution. God has revealed his plan for just judgement and told the prophet to watch and wait. In the end, injustice, evil, Pain in the pollution of society would be stopped by the Lord who is sovereignly into groundIn his holy temple (2:20). Habakkuk has no more questions, no further need to plead his cause, he has no case to make, or compliant to voice. He has learned to keep silent before the Lord whose glory will cover the earth (2:14). The prophet has been hushed, and turns to the Lord with a prayer of praise and worship. It is as though faith has truly triumphed in Habakkuk's perplexing situation. He has embraced the perspective of heaven and has submitted to the Lord's timing and means of intervention. All Habakkuk can do at this juncture is accept the just and merciful dealings of the Lord and cast himself upon God's care. May the Lord teach us to do the same in the midst of our trials and perplexities.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - One of the five rallying cries of the Protestant Reformation was the statement that we are saved by faith alone – sola fide! These words declared that salvation does not come from looking at our own works of righteousness, but from looking outside ourselves to another, to the person and work of Jesus Christ. The Bible is very clear that our own works do not merit salvation or eternal life (Titus 3:5; Eph. 2:9; Rom. 3:10). This means that no matter how good we are, we can never measure up to God’s standard (Rom. 3:23; Matt. 19:17; Isaiah 64:6). Our salvation depends solely and wholly upon Jesus as our substitute (2Cor. 5:21), and Savior from sin (John 1:29). Faith is the instrument or vessel that joins us to Christ and unites us to his righteousness. This treasured text in (Habakkuk 2:4) is a foundational stone for the biblical doctrine of justification by faith. Some say that the famous phrase is the key to the whole book, and perhaps the central theme of Scripture at large. God tells the prophet that “The righteous shall live by his faith.”

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Toady we take a break from our regular series in the book of Habakkuk and study of passage from 1 Corinthians. We are introduced to a gospel-centric account of Paul's missionary journey to Corinth. Paul characterizes his time in Corinth as a time of weakness and fear, and yet we see the miraculous work of God in building up his church. We see evidence of the spirits working in bringing those who are blinded and lost to the light of the glory of the Gospel. Join us today as we study the life of Paul, his message, am a conversion of the believers at Corinth.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The judgment that the Lord was going to bring upon Judah was somewhat surprising to Habakkuk because it was going to be meted out through the evil, idolatrous Babylonians (1:6). This unjust, brutal nation was going to judge God’s people. But how could this happen, and how long would God allow “the wicked to swallow up the man more righteous than he” (1:13)? That was Habakkuk’s concern. It’s not that he believed Judah was blameless, he just couldn’t understand how an even worse nation could be God’s tool of judgement, and then seemingly just go about their wickedness without divine intervention. What the prophet had to understand is that God’s unconventional means don’t compromise his goodness. Rather, God’s means should engender faith. In Habakkuk 2, God made it clear that he would judge the Babylonians and ultimately he would deliver his people. In other words, God was telling Habakkuk, “Don’t worry about the Babylonians. They will get their just deserves too. Just live by faith and trust my timing and plan.” The Babylonians were going to be a tool in God’s hand, but they would be judged for their sin and wickedness in the end. Through a series of “woe” statements, God indicated the basis for his future judgment of the Chaldeans. When it comes to God’s justice, his judgment is certain. So, if you are suffering you need to wait for God’s judgment (2:3), if you’re sinning, you need run from God’s judgment (2:2) by running with his warning to his Son who was judged for you. Either way, trust God because his work is sure.
