Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

September 15 - Morning

Then the Lord replied: "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay."
- Habakkuk 2:2-3

Prophetic Revelation is Never 'Unresponsive'
(no rainbow colored pinwheels spinning here!)


The word “revelation” (“vision” ESV, ASV, KJ) that Habakkuk is to write on tablets is the Hebrew
word hazon and it refers to supernatural insight or message received by the prophet. The verb
form of the same word is used in Habakkuk 1:1:

“The oracle (hazah) that Habakkuk the prophet received.”

It is a message from God, and not some company vision statement or New Year’s resolution or
the mission statement from a purpose driven church, ministry, life, etc. It is to be written down
and preserved as a reference to guide, teach and empower a future generation of believers. It is to serve as a testimony to prove God’s existence, superiority and omnipotence in history. This “revelation,” “prophecy,” or “vision,” from God is to be made “plain” which means both to inscribe clearly and write accurately so that the content of the message is communicated and not lost in translation or carelessness. The “herald,” or qore in Hebrew, literally means “the one who reads” and refers to the man whose skill was reading and whose mission was to run with the message in order to communicate it to a person or to a group of people.

As so often is true of God’s work in history this revelation will seem to “linger.” But, the instructions included in this message are to “wait for it!” Habakkuk is told that in this revelation God’s word:

  • Awaits an appointed time – its fulfillment is not for now, but for a determined time in the future
  • Speaks of the end – “speaks” means “to breathe, to blow” continuously towards its
    ultimate fulfillment in the end like wind continually blowing on sand or snow to form what
    will ultimately be a sand dune or snow drift. God’s word is not idle, but is continually
    creating its final purpose.
  • Will not prove false – the message of the Word of God is not a lie; in fact, it is occurring now as God continues to blow history to its final goal
  • Will certainly come – it will certainly come to completion as surely as it is being formed
    right now
  • Will not delay – the process is underway and it will not quit until it is finished. Think of it
    as a download in process: God’s word will continue to download until it is complete. God’s word will not become like an unresponsive program that starts spinning like a little rainbow-colored optical disk during its download into history.
  Christian Quote from Church History

"Believe in Him and not
trust in Him? You might
as well say, the Jews did
love Him when they
nailed Him to the cross.
– Antony Farindon




Something to Ponder??
In the Castle Church in Wittenberg where Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on its door in 1517 there
were 17,443 relics inside.
If all these relics were viewed
a person could earn
remission of 1,902,202 years and 270 days from purgatory, according to the teaching of the clergy at that time
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Kohen (Hb) - Priest (Eng) - One of the words for "priest" in Hebrew is komer. Komer comes
from the root word that means to burn and may refer to burning pagan sacrifices (which
included children in 2 Kings 23:10). Komer is used to refer to pagan priests. The word
for Israel's priests is kohen and it comes from a root meaning a "base" as in the wide,
solid base of a column. The base is the support that stabilizes the columns which are
themselves the support of a larger structure. The Hebrew word for priest then refers
to the stabilizing feature of a larger supporting pillar in a structure that
is bigger than both the base and the column.
  First Clement is a letter (book) written around 95 AD by Clement, a disciple of Paul and Peter. (John wrote
"Revelation" in 96 AD.)
Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Who am I supporting today? Is there someone who is leaning on me that I can help?
Today I will identify someone I can help and support so that they may be a source of strength for someone else.
