    Habakkuk 3:1-19 Lord God, I know Your fame, I am in awe of what You have done. You make Yourself known and in your wrath You do not forget mercy. God comes from Paran, His splendour covers the sky and earth. As bright as the dawn, rays of light flash from His hand and thereby His might is veiled. Plague and pestilence go before and after Him. The earth shakes and nations panic. The mountains are broken and flattened. The dwellings of Cushan and Midian are destroyed.

    What is the cause of Your anger, O God? You arm Your weapons and the earth and sea shake with fear. The sun and moon stand still. Furiously You traverse the earth, and trample the nations. You come to deliver Your people and save Your anointed ones. You shatter the house of the wicked, laying bare its foundations. With his own weapon You kill their leaders and warriors, swept away by a whirlwind, as they prepare to attack. I tremble at Your advance, but I long for the Day of calamity to come upon our enemies. Although the fig tree has not yet budded and the grape vine bears no fruit and the Land does not prosper, even so, I shall exult in the Lord. God Almighty is my strength, He makes me sure footed and confident. Nahum 1:15
    Ref: Revised English Bible. Some verses abridged.

    Chapter three of the Book of Habakkuk, describes how the Lord will act to punish His enemies and protect His people. Written in the present tense for the surety of its fulfilment.

    ‘as they are about to devour their victims – prepare to attack’. Verse 14 is an interesting description of the method and timing of the Lord’s Day of vengeance. “swept away by a whirlwind” and with ‘arrows of light flashing’. This can only describe a Coronal Mass Ejection, a sunstrike, which will occur at the exact moment that His enemies commence their attack. Confirmed by Deuteronomy 32:31-35...My reserve of punishment, stored up for My Day of vengeance, till the moment that their foot slips, [make a mistake] for their doom is fast approaching. And Isaiah 30:26the sun will shine with seven times its normal strength.. Malachi 4:1+3, 2 Peter 3:7

    ‘as bright as the dawn’Joel 2:2like the dawn spreading across the mountains… As the earth rotates and nations face the sun, they will be struck with the fire and devastation described in Joel 2:1-11 and detailed in over 100 other prophesies. Jeremiah 25:32

    ‘With his own weapons, You kill the enemy, as they prepare to attack’. This will literally happen if a CME strikes an armed nuke missile and the microwave penetration will explode ammunition and rockets stored underground. Deut. 32:22, Jer. 49:35, Haggai 2:21-22, Hosea 2:8, Psalms 37:15
    Note that: “His might is veiled” The Lord will not be seen at this time. Psalms 18:7-19, Romans 1:18

    Furiously, You trample the nations’. This will be the fulfilment of Isaiah 63:1-6, Isaiah 2:12-21, Zechariah 2:13, Zech. 14:13-15, Malachi 4:1, Hebrews 10:27, Rev. 6:12-17.

    ‘The dwellings of Cushan and Midian are destroyed’. Cushan and Midian: North Africa and Arabia. Ezekiel 30:1-5, Zephaniah 2:5&12, Isaiah 19:1-10

    Punishment, trampling, fierce fire, etc. This cannot be construed as the same event as the Return of Jesus., described quite differently in Matthew 24:30, Rev. 19:11-13

    But, this is also the Day of deliverance for His people: ‘The Lord does not forget mercy and saves His anointed people’. We look forward with great anticipation to the great Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath, when He will fulfill His promises to His people. 1 Corinthians 2:9
    Judah ‘the fig tree’, the Jewish people, does not yet acknowledge the Messiah, and Israel ‘the vine’, every faithful Christian person: still await their true destiny. When these happen, the Land and His people will prosper. Ezekiel 34:11-16, Joel 2:21-24, Amos 9:13-15

    That will be the wonderful time when the Lords righteous people gather and live together in peace in New Israel. Ezekiel 39:25-29, Isaiah 62:1-5, Isa 40:1-3, Jer. 3:14, Micah 2:12, Zech. 8:7, Psalms 68:7-10. They will proclaim the coming Kingdom of Jesus. Isaiah 49:6, Isa. 66:19, Rev. 7:1-9

    Psalms 37:1-40 Do not worry about or envy evildoers, for like grass, they soon wither. Better is the little which the righteous person has, than all the wealth of the wicked, for their power will be broken. The Lord watches over the upright all their days, in their time of need, they will have enough. The Laws of God are in the heart of the righteous and they know justice and wisdom. Observe the good person, watch those who are honest, for they leave descendants, but transgressors are wiped out, one and all – their descendants are cut off. Deliverance for the righteous comes from the Lord, their refuge in times of trouble. The Lord will help them and keep them safe from the wicked. He will save them because they seek shelter in Him.

    It is the Lord who directs a person’s steps, though he may fall, He will hold him firmly. I was young, but now have grown old, never have I seen the righteous forsaken. If you shun evil and do good you will live at peace forever, for the Lord is a lover of justice and will not forsake His loyal servants. The lawless are banished, while the righteous will possess the Land and will live there forever. Those whom the Lord has blessed will possess the Land and those who are cursed will be cut off. Wait for the Lord and hold to His ways, He will raise you up to be masters of the Land. When the wicked are destroyed, you will be there to watch. Trust in the Lord and do good, settle in the Land and find a good home. Commit your way to the Lord, trust Him and He will act. Wait quietly for the Lord.

    The wicked look to ensnare and kill the righteous, but the Lord will not leave them in their power, nor let them be condemned if brought to trial. The Lord will laugh at the wicked, for He sees their Day of judgement coming. They have drawn their swords to slaughter those who are honest, but they will pierce their own hearts.

    Be angry no more; that leads to evil. For evildoers will be destroyed and those who trust in the Lord will inherit the Land, they will enjoy great peace. The wicked plot against the righteous and grind their teeth at the sight of them, but in a little while, they will be no more, their place will be empty. The enemies of the Lord will perish like fuel in a furnace; they will go up in smoke.
    Ref:REB. Text sorted into matching context.

    The Day of Judgement is coming and the Lord laughs at those who plot against the righteous. They prepare to attack, but their weapons will recoil upon themselves. Deut. 32:34-35, Psalm 83:1-18, Psalm 7:12-15, Obadiah 15, Hab. 3:14, Joel 3:4

    The enemies of the Lord will burn, like fuel in a furnace. Malachi 4:1 & 3, Isaiah 30:25-28, Isaiah 66:15-16, Amos 1:1-15, Zeph. 3:8, 2 Peter 3:10, Rev. 6:12-17

    Wait quietly and trust in the Lord. He will act to destroy the evildoers and punish all the godless. Deut. 32:40-43, Proverbs 16:4-5, Isaiah 13:9-13, Jer. 9:25-26, Nahum 1:1-10, Micah 7:3-4, Hebrews 10:26-27, 2 Peter 10-22

    Those who trust in the Lord will inherit the holy Land, they will settle there and find prosperity and peace. Isaiah 30:29, Deut. 33:26-29, Psalm 66:8-12, Isaiah 42:10-12, Isaiah 49:8-13 & 22, Isaiah 51:1-11, Isaiah 54:1-17, Isaiah 55:12-13, Isaiah 60:1-22, Isaiah 61:4-11, Isaiah 62:1-5, Isaiah 62:10-12, Isaiah 66:18b-21, Jer. 3:14-18, Jer. 23:3-8, Jer. 30:10 & 18-22, Jer. 31:1-40, Jer. 32:37-44, Jer 33:6-26, Jer. 46:27-28, Jer. 50:4-7, Eze. 11:14-21, Eze. 20:33-38, Eze. 28:24-28, Eze. 34:11-21, Eze. 36:8-37, Eze. 37:20-27, Eze. 39:25-29, Hosea 2:14-23, Joel 2:18-22, Amos 9:8-15, Mic. 7:11-20, Zeph. 3:9-20, Zech. 10:8-12, Mal. 3:16-18.

    This Psalm tells us very clearly, that those who put their trust in the Lord, are the ones that He will save. It is sensible to have some preparation for the coming time of troubles, but verse 5 is our best advice. Isaiah 49:10-13
