A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall
D.L. Moody: We are to trust Him at all times. We are to trust at night as well as by day. We are to trust when we cannot see how it is coming out, as well as when we can.
Waylon Bailey: The righteous are courageous enough to accept God’s Word of promise in a world dominated by the horrors of Babylonian power as described in the preceding verses.
NOTE: Unfortunately a technical issue with the recorder caused us to miss the first few minutes of the lesson. After the recap of the previous lesson, Scott went back to touch on Hab. 2:4 and the three times that verse is quoted in the New Testament, including Galatians 3:11 (“Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for ‘The righteous shall live by faith.'”). The audio picks up when Scott is pointing out that while Habakkuk’s context is more about faith applied to life, Paul applies this to salvation.
Habakkuk 2:4 – 8
“Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith.
“Moreover, wine is a traitor,
an arrogant man who is never at rest.
His greed is as wide as Sheol;
like death he has never enough.
He gathers for himself all nations
and collects as his own all peoples.”
Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him,
“Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—
for how long?—
and loads himself with pledges!”
Will not your debtors suddenly arise,
and those awake who will make you tremble?
Then you will be spoil for them.
Because you have plundered many nations,
all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you,
for the blood of man and violence to the earth,
to cities and all who dwell in them.”
