- A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, set to wild, enthusiastic and triumphal music.
- O Lord, I have heard the report of You, and was afraid. O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make Yourself known! In wrath (earnestly) remember love, pity and mercy.
- God (approaching from Sinai) came from Teman, (which represents Edom,) and the Holy One from Mount Paran (in the Sinai region). Selah (stop and calmly think of that)! His Glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.
- And His brightness was like the sunlight; rays streamed from His hand; and there (in the sun-like splendor) was the hiding of His power.
- Before Him went the pestilence (as in Egypt), and burning plague followed His feet (as in Sennacherib’s army).
- He stood and measured the earth; He looked and shook the Nations; and the eternal mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills bowed low; His ways are everlasting and His goings are of old. Amp.
There is so much in these 6 verses. It is OK for Christian music to be fast and enthusiastic. We should be happy and exciting singing His praises! In verse 2 He is talking about the last days when he asks God to remember mercy. Then comes the Millennial Reign as the earth is full of His praise.
In verse 4 His brightness is as the sun. What changes are there today in the sun? It is in Solar Cycle 25. There are holes in the sun called sunspots that cause solar flares. The solar flares are explosions that create geomagnetic storms. These storms cause CME’s (Coronal Mass Ejection’s) which if directed toward the earth can cause cracks in the magnetic field that protects the Earth, electrical blackouts and cause radioactive particles to enter our atmosphere.
Is this the rays streaming from His hand in the hiding place of His Power? Verse 5 talks about the plagues and pestilence (disease) that goes before Him. Then comes the shaking of the earth. The mountains are scattered and bow before Him. The experts say that many of the changes that are taking place are because there is a shaking in the core of the earth. When it is all over the mountains will have all fled. No more mountains.
Just look at all the volcanic activity in the earth today. Volcanoes can create or uncreate mountains. He has a purpose in all the volcanoes, earthquakes and solar storms.
He is letting all these signs come together at this time so man will see something is happening. What will the experts do when the end comes. How will they explain it when there is only one explanation.
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will exult in the victorious God of my salvation. Hab. 3:18 Amp.
Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord God: There shall none of My words be deferred any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be performed, says the Lord God. Ezekiel 12:28
