Habakkuk

Habakkuk Chapter 3 The Final Experiences of the Great Company

Sep 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Habakkuk, Psalm 83 and Gog & Magog, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Habakkuk Chapter 3 picks up sequentially with God’s intervention on behalf of Israel. Verses 17-19 are purposely out of place to show that the Great Company will find themselves in the interim, that is, before God actually starts to deliver Israel. The very life of the Great Company depends on maintaining their faith and trust in God—and in maintaining their integrity for God.

First, the Great Company will weep and gnash their teeth. Then they will have relative restoration of faith and zeal. Revelation 19:6-9 shows that a strengthening voice will come from heaven, saying that the Bride “hath made herself ready.” In other words, the Great Company class will be informed that the Church is complete. The words of verse 9, “Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb,” will encourage the Great Company— that is, after the disappointing revelation that the Bride is complete makes them mourn and question their own standing with God. Habakkuk 3:18 ties in: “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

Habakkuk Chapter 2: Write the Vision

Sep 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Habakkuk, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

First, the people and the discontents will oppose Papacy. Then the Lord’s Great Army will take over. From the fall of Papacy until the time God saves the Holy Remnant will be one period of trial and trouble. During this time, the Great Company will find themselves. The vision will become plain to the Great Company left behind when they actually see Babylon fall—at least it will become plain at that time to those with a present-truth background.

For “one hour,” mystic Babylon will again manifest Inquisition power (Rev. 17:12). The persecution will awaken the masses, who have believed the propaganda that the Inquisition was greatly exaggerated. Persecution, despotic power, and animosity will be manifested by Papacy and evangelical Protestantism. These actions will expose the hypocrisy of the systems, which have professed to be so loving. The masses will then react. Those who chafe under the hour of power will SUDDENLY ACT, and when they EXPLODE, Babylon will fall. In essence, the people will be so fed up at that point that they will act and not fear for their lives.

The Book of Habakkuk Chapter 1

Jul 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Habakkuk, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The name “Habakkuk” means “wrestle, wrestling”—hence the mental and moral struggle presented in Habakkuk’s prophecy. (The verbal form of the word has to do with “cling” or “clasp.”) As we proceed, we will see that the perspective of Habakkuk’s prophecy is that of the Great Company. Therefore, by extension, the Book of Habakkuk pertains to the mental and moral struggle or condition of the Great Company, a righteously inclined class who will have problems after the Little Flock is off the earthly scene.

The Book of Habakkuk is most famous for a Scripture quoted several times in the New Testament: “The just shall live by his faith” (Hab. 2:4). See Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, and Hebrews 10:38. There is a lot behind Habakkuk’s statement that the just shall live by faith.
