HABAKKUK


God reveals to the prophet Habakkuk that the wickedness of Judah had reached its zenith and must be punished. He tells the prophet that the Babylonians will be the instrument of God's justice, but Habakkuk struggles with this prospect because the Babylonians are a people even more wicked than Judah. Why would God use them? God reveals to the prophet that after the Babylonians bring judgment on Judah, they themselves will be destroyed by the surrounding nations. In Habakkuk we learn that the righteous "shall live by their faith", which is the rallying cry of the Apostle Paul and the early Church many centuries later.
