Habakkuk – Chapter 3: Habakkuk’s Prayer

It’s the final chapter of Habakkuk and after two questions and two non-answers from God, Habakkuk decides to pray.

“Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.” – Habakkuk 3:2

What deeds? Murder? Genocide? Famine? Drought?

“His splendor was like the sunrise; rays flashed from his hand, where his power was hidden. Plague went before him; pestilence followed his steps.” – Habakkuk 3:4-5

Splendor followed by plague and pestilence? LOL!

“He stood, and shook the earth; he looked, and made the nations tremble.” – Habakkuk 3:6

God causes earthquakes that kill people. Nice.

“Were you angry with the rivers, Lord?” – Habakkuk 3:8

Angry at the rivers? WTF?

“Sun and moon stood still in the heavens” – Habakkuk 3:11

Nope, the Sun and the moon both move. The moon orbits Earth and the Sun orbits the center of the galaxy.

“In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations.” – Habakkuk 3:12

A loving God that is angry all the time. LOL!

“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.” – Habakkuk 3:19

Feet like the feet of deer? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

What a joke of a chapter. Habakkuk is praying to God saying how great he is, but in the process points out direct evidence to how horrible the God of the Bible really is. 

Coming Soon: Jeremiah – Chapter 41: Untitled
