I wrote this about a month ago, wondering if I should publish it. As with everything, the Lord’s timing is perfect…
I’ve been up for the last 2 hours praying & being silent before the Lord. He has given me a widening meaning of my favorite prophet, Habakkuk. He points me to the prophet’s words, & when I look up questioning, He answers with what He told Habakkuk back then.
The Prophet’s Complaint ~
How long, Lord , must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save? Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.
Habakkuk 1:2-4 NIV
God’s Answer ~
“Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. . .”
Friends, God is still at the helm, He remains in control, and we need to understand that He will bring about what He purposed long ago.
“I am raising up the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep across the whole earth to seize dwellings not their own. They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honor. Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk. Their cavalry gallops headlong; their horsemen come from afar. They fly like an eagle swooping to devour; they all come intent on violence. Their hordes advance like a desert wind and gather prisoners like sand. They mock kings and scoff at rulers. They laugh at all fortified cities; by building earthen ramps they capture them. Then they sweep past like the wind and go on— guilty people, whose own strength is their god.”
The towering hoards are the Muslim invasion of the West. They scoff at our compassion, & dismiss those who try to help. Their worldview is alien to us, as we are mere slaves to them to do with as they please. Islamic groups believe that ‘refugees’ from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan will spread Sharia in Europe and North America, which is the main goal of jihad: civilization change from within. Many of these ‘refugees’ are violent groups of young men – with no women or children – willing to accept handouts, then demand what they want by force. Many have stated they intwnd to outbreed our indigenous population.
THEN the Lord guided me to this section, as to what I am to do.
I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint.
Habakkuk 2:1 NIV
