Habakkuk Says “Run!”, Part 12: “As Ye See ‘What Day Approaching?'”

TO READ PART 1, CLICK HERE…August 11th (Habakkuk Says “Run!”)

It seems as if every church-going parishioner knows the following Bible verse…“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25

.

Now of course, this verse has been the glue that has held local congregations together for the past 2,000 years!

THE DARK AGES WAS A TIME TO FLEE

Oh yes, during the Dark Ages, God’s people had to flee to the literal mountains to escape the persecution from the established churches of Europe.

.

But even there, those Christian refugees began their own congregations high up in the mountain strongholds of the European Alps.

“AS YE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING”

.

But in this day in which the world seems to be at peace with the Church, most every localhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lux_Mundi,_the_sculpture_of_Jesus_at_Solid_Rock_Church.jpg congregation teaches that we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, and all the more, especially as we see the day approaching.

.

But if you would ask most any congregation the question, “As you see WHAT DAY approaching?”, you would most likely hear this response, “The Day of the Lord, of course!”

.

Well, that’s correct! God’s people are to congregate together until the Day of the Lord.

“AT THE END, IT SHALL SPEAK, AND NOT LIE!”

.

But when that Day finally arrives, are we still to congregate together?

.

Listen to the prophet, Habakkuk…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

OK, so there was to come a day in which God’s people are to “RUN!”

RUN, CHRISTIAN, RUN!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

.

And what event precipitates this command to “run”?

.

When the vision of Habakkuk begins to speak at the time of the end, then God’s people are to run!

.

And when God’s elect people must run, this will obviously bring an end to their congregating together.

“THE WICKED ENCOMPASS ABOUT THE RIGHTEOUS!”

.

And so, the next obvious questions to ask would be…“Well, just hhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgow and when will Habakkuk’s vision begin to speak? And what will that vision be? And why are God’s people to ‘RUN!’, at that time?”

.

Well, the little book of Habakkuk begins by saying…“The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. O LORD, how long shall I cry…Why dost thou shew me iniquity…Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:1-4 (condensed for brevity)

.

So here is the basic burden which the prophet, Habakkuk did see: God’s people encompassed about by the wicked Chaldeans (unbelievers and false brethren).

CONGREGATE UNTIL IT’S TIME TO FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

And so, to make the briefest and most concise summary of today’s devotional, it would seem that God’s people were to congregate together until the day when they would realize that Habakkuk’s vision of the corrupting influence of the Chaldeans (unbelievers and false brethren) upon God’s people is seen.

.

And so, tomorrow’s devotional will attempt to reveal just how Habakkuk’s vision is now speaking and as a result is sounding the clarion call to do as the Lord commands, “RUN!”

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth. This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies.

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights.

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
