With Corona, it is time to get some regular use out of th3e Blog and the Twitter.
Well, first of all, with reference to the title of this blog, it is NOT the end of the world. For Habakkuk, however (2600 years ago in about 605 B.C.), it was about to become the end of the world as he knew it. God has just made it clear to Habakkuk that very, very soon Babylon would invade Judah and bring them into complete ruin. Listen to Habakkuk’s response to this terrible news as a reminder about how we should rejoice in Christ no matter what this world might bring: “I heard and my inward parts trembled, At the sound my lips quivered. Decay enters my bones, And in my place I tremble. Because I must wait quietly for the day of distress, For the people to arise who will invade us. Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And makes me walk on my chigh places.” Rejoice always in your eternal salvation (Rom. 8:31-39). Love, Pastor Tim
