BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 4: Habakkuk 3:1-15

11a) Habakkuk asks God to repeate his awesome deeds in his day and make them known. He asks him to remember mercy in his anger.

b) It’s a wonderful prayer, asking God to show up and do good deeds in our day like He did in the past. Habakkuk is humble, declaring God’s goodness. We all can be humble to God, declare His goodness, and ask Him to show up in our lives.

12a)

His glory covered the heavens
    and his praise filled the earth.
6 He stood, and shook the earth;
    he looked, and made the nations tremble.
The ancient mountains crumbled
    and the age-old hills collapsed—
    but he marches on forever.
9 You uncovered your bow,
    you called for many arrows.
You split the earth with rivers;

11 Sun and moon stood still in the heavens

    at the glint of your flying arrows,

    at the lightning of your flashing spear.
13 You came out to deliver your people,
    to save your anointed one.
You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness,
    you stripped him from head to foot.
14 With his own spear you pierced his head
    when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,
gloating as though about to devour
    the wretched who were in hiding.
15 You trampled the sea with your horses,
    churning the great waters.

b) God has always been there in the past and worked things out. He will continue to do so for me today.

Habakkuk prays for revival of the people like in yesteryear. We should pray for personal revival. He prays for God to remember them and have mercy.

He praises God for His glory, His works, and for who God is.

When we remember what God did in the past, it helps us to remember what God can do in the present.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 3: Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

SUMMARY OF HABAKKUK 1:12-2:20

Habakkuk complains again to God, asking Him why He tolerates treachery and those who do evil to others.

The Lord gives Habakkuk a message to give to the people: woe to those who do not live by faithfulness. Woe to all those who do evil to others.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 3: Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

6a) The Lord is everlasting. He will never die. He has appointed the Babylonians to execute judgment and to punish. Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing.

b) Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves?

c) I really don’t. We all deserve judgment. God is in charge. Evil happens for a reason. It is for us to accept, not to understand.

7) Habakkuk waits on God’s reply and expects to be corrected. This is what we all should do. Wait on the Lord and let Him work.

8 ) People who are righteous live by faith. Others desire evil and are proud. In essence, those who rely on themselves (proud) and those who rely on God (the faithful).

9) He warns people who do evil against others, who are proud, greedy, drunk, and practice idolatry.

10) God is above all else and truly no one has any right to be in His presence. We should be humble before the Lord in all ways and in all things for God is Holy.

Conclusions BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 3: Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

This is so typically human. We still question God because we can’t understand Him and His ways. And God answers in typical style: because I am God.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 3: Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

Habakkuk wonders why God chose the Babylonians to judge Judah. First he wonders why God doesn’t judge Judah. Then he wonders why choose the Babylonians. Why judge evil with more evil? Why not?

Then he wonders how long the Babylonians will rule.

Habakkuk expected God to answer him, so he waited. He expected to be corrected, too.

God says there are the proud and there are the faithful.

Fun Fact: “Just live by faith” is one of the most quoted Old Testamant verses in the New Testament.

Romans 1:17  the justified man – “The just shall live by faith.”

Hebrews 10:38  faith – “The just shall live by faith.”

Galatians 3:11 the Christian life – “The just shall live by faith.”

Christians are to live by faith. That is it. By nothing else: works, feelings, etc.

God would deal with the Babylonians who were prideful.

God calls out to the greedy, the violent, the drunk, and the idolater.

The Lord is alive in His Holy temple, and He would deal with them all.

We watch and pray as we wait on God to answer our prayers.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 2: Habakkuk 1:1-11

SUMMARY OF HABAKKUK 1:1-11

Habakkuk cries out to the Lord, but says He is not listening as the wicked people pervert justice and there’s wrongdoing all around him.

The Lord answers by saying He will raise up the Babylonians who are ruthless people to seize dwellings across the world.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 2: Habakkuk 1:1-11

3a) Habakkuk cries out to the Lord, but says He is not listening as the wicked people pervert justice all around him.

b) The questions we have today are exactly the same as the ones we had back then. Why does God allow bad to happen to people?

4a) 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.

b) He is going to raise up the Babylonians who are ruthless people to seize dwellings across the world.

5) God is working silently in the background. He is always with us, even when we can’t see, feel, or understand Him.

Conclusions BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 2: Habakkuk 1:1-11

Many of the prophets we’ve studied this year have wondered how God could allow such atrocities against mankind and they have asked him about it. So must we.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 28, Day 2: Habakkuk 1:1-11

We know very little about the prophet Habakkuk, as he is not mentioned in other books of the Bible. Bible scholars believe he preached during the reign of King Jehoiakim around 600 B.C. and the book was written before the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC. His name means “embrace” in Hebrew and him being called a prophet is rare in the Bible. He lived in the last days before Judah’s exile and is the last of the preexilic prophets. His book encourages the righteous to remain faithful despite the horrors and evil around them.

This is the 8th book of the Minor Prophets.

Paul quotes Habakkuk 1:5 in Acts 13:41 urging the people not to let complacency keep them from accepting Jesus.

Habakkuk wanted judgment on those who were doing evil in the world.

Seeing evil makes us realize that we ourselves are evil, too.

God answers by saying He will use the Babylonians for judgment.
