“How long, Lord, have I called for help, And You do not hear? I cry out to You, “Violence!” Yet You do not save.” The words of the Old Testament prophet Habakkuk echo in our ears TODAY because what was will be again, there is nothing new under the sun. Think about this past year (2020-2021), and all of the heartache, turmoil and sickness this year has brought. “Lord, where are you? Why do you not send help”? Why are you allowing the evil to prosper??” Many people all over the globe are crying out these same words as they experience the iron grip of a global pandemic and the “once great nation of America” being divided up and portioned out to her enemies.
The name Habakkuk means “to wrestle or embrace” and may refer to Habakkuk’s wrestling with God, and ultimately embracing God’s Will. The book of Habakkuk (in the Old Testament/Bible) was thought to have been written sometime during the reign of Jerusalem’s King Jehoiakim (609-598 B.C.), or just before the Babylonian invasion of Jerusalem.
Habakkuk is very distressed at all the sin and idolatry that was going on in the land of Israel. Israel had been set apart by God to be “different” than all the nations around her. She was supposed to be a LIGHT to the world. But her light had grown dim.
Habakkuk 1:3 Why do You make me see disaster,
And make me look at destitution?
Yes, devastation and violence are before me;
Strife exists and contention arises.
4 Therefore the Law is ignored,
And justice is never upheld.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore justice comes out confused.
Habakkuk was CRYING out to God for answers…..
“Why are You (God) ALLOWING wicked people to openly oppress and grieve others through violent means, through devastation, strife, seizing what does not belong to them, and a total lack of justice? Habakkuk suggested that there was no place to hide his eyes because SIN was EVERYWHERE. Even among God’s people, MANY were now performing their wicked actions openly and publicly, in the sight of all, without any shame or fear. In-fact, they were PROMOTING their own actions as “righteous”, while labeling anybody who criticized them as “haters”.…even killing the prophets who were sent to warn them.
Do we see this today? Most definitely! America, built on Judeo-Christian values, once honored the God who created her “One Nation under God“. But now she has turned her back on God and has EMBRACED IDOLATRY and the things that God calls evil. Like the nation of Judah (Israel) in Habakkuk’s day, there are public figures, even some Churches, who OPENLY support CRIMINAL actions (RIOTING/LOOTING) while DEMONIZING law enforcement. Modern, “woke” values are embraced, and true Christians have been labeled “homophobic, misogynistic, RACIST, “science deniers”, and “conspiracy theorists”. By so-doing, the elite now believe they have the moral obligation to “cancel” conservative Judeo/Christian values.
Over the past 10 to 20 years, America has systematically removed Jesus Christ from our military, our government, our education system, entertainment, media, and sadly, even from many apostate Churches who preach a “different Jesus” and a Social Gospel. And what is the result of removing God from this nation?
The unthinkable has occurred in that there are now States (New York and others) who have embraced and CELEBRATED not only abortion, but also INFANTICIDE (the death of babies who survive an abortion).
In 2016, the Supreme Court of the United States shot down the BIBLICAL definition of MARRIAGE and EMBRACED HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE throughout the land. In effect, they declared THEMSELVES to be a HIGHER and WISER COURT than THE COURT OF HEAVEN! 😲 They even lit the White House up in rainbow colors to celebrate. REMEMBER, the RAINBOW is A SIGN of GOD’S MERCY! If this isn’t BLASPHEMOUS ENOUGH, we just learned today that a horrible, UNGODLY movie is coming out this summer (2021) that depicts our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST and HIS DISCIPLES as HOMOSEXUALS!!! This is TOTAL BLASPHEMY!!! Homosexuality is declared to be a SIN in both the Old and New Testaments, and Jesus Christ, the perfect Lamb of God NEVER SINNED! They will likely time the movie’s debut to coincide with “gay pride month” (June). Mocking the God that made America great. Gay pride flags will be permitted to fly at American embassies around the world.
At the same time, for the first time in 70 years, the National Day of Prayer was CANCELLED in Washington, DC!
While prayer has been REMOVED from schools, and the American flag labeled as “racist”, Black Lives Matter/Critical Race Theory, a Communist antichrist RELIGION, is being promoted at schools, from primary through college as our children are being indoctrinated and taught to HATE.
These are just a few examples of the ungodly and sinful attitudes that have invaded the US and THE GLOBE! This ungodly “woke” religion, masquerading as an angel of light, has SADLY, invaded many churches as well. Black Lives Matter isn’t about correcting the evils of racism…it’s about COMMUNISM.
So…like Habakkuk, we CRY OUT TO GOD “how can you allow this to happen? Why are you not hearing our prayers? When will you DO something about this?”…
In the book of Habakkuk, God RESPONDS, and it is JAW-DROPPING! God’s response is MYSTERIOUS, it is EXCITING, and yet it is very sobering, all at the same time. We should NEVER mistake God’s patience for approval of sin or apathy to what transpires on this earth.
Habakkuk 1:5:Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
God told Habakkuk…Look Habakkuk who LIVES AMONG THE HEATHEN, I’m going to do something IN YOUR DAYS, that you wouldn’t believe EVEN if someone had told you. Hmmm….That’s quite intriguing. God then goes on to tell Habakkuk what HE’s going to do. God is going to RAISE UP Babylon, the world’s MOST POWERFUL NATION and use them to DESTROY Jerusalem and severely punish her wicked people. However, once God is finished USING BABYLON as his punishing rod, HE will DESTROY HER. Babylon WILL be held GUILTY!
ultimately, God WILL Display HIS GLORY over ALL THE EARTH!
Habakkuk 1:6: For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans (babylonians),
That grim and impetuous people
Who march throughout the earth,
To take possession of dwelling places that are not theirs.
7 They are terrifying and feared;
Their justice and authority originate with themselves.
8 Their horses are faster than leopards,
And quicker than wolves in the evening.
Their horsemen charge along,
Their horsemen come from afar;
They fly like an eagle swooping down to devour.
9 All of them come for violence.
Their horde of faces moves forward.
They gather captives like sand.
10 They make fun of kings,
And dignitaries are an object of laughter to them.
They laugh at every fortress,
Then heap up dirt and capture it.
Well, I guess that answers Habakkuk’s question. God is not going to tolerate His people’s sin and blatant disregard for HIS WORD….forever. This response from God actually terrified Habakkuk 😱 who asked God..”why would you raise up an ungodly nation who is far less righteous than Israel, to destroy her? The Chaldeans (Babylonians) are an ungodly, idolatrous nation that devoured other nations through violence, bloodshed, corruption and looting!
Habakkuk 1: 12: Are You not from time everlasting,
Lord, my God, my Holy One?
We will not die.
You, Lord, have appointed them to deliver judgment;
And You, O Rock, have destined them to punish.
13 Your eyes are too pure to look at evil,
And You cannot look at harm favorably.
Why do You look favorably
At those who deal treacherously?
Why are You silent when the wicked swallow up
Those more righteous than they?
God listened to Habakkuk and responded.”Don’t worry Habakkuk, once God is finished USING Babylon to CHASTISE His people…He will destroy the destroyer.“
Habakkuk 1:11: But they (wicked/babylon) will be held guilty,
They whose strength is their god.”
God assured Habakkuk, yes, He was going to RAISE UP the BABYLONIANS and use them as a PUNISHING ROD for His Nation Israel. But….Babylon WILL be held guilty. God has appointed a day when HE will DESTROY the DESTROYER!
HABAKKUK: 2:2: Then the Lord answered me and said,
“Write down the vision
And inscribe it clearly on tablets,
So that one who reads it may run.
3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time;
It hurries toward the goal and it will not fail.
Though it delays, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay long.
God then goes into some pretty stunning descriptions of what is going to happen to the WICKED NATION(S) ON THAT DAY. In, fact Habakkuk USES 5 WOES to describe God’s DESTRUCTION of Babylon, the WICKED nation that HE HIMSELF was raising up to PUNISH ISRAEL (JUDAH).
There is a very important distinction that needs to be made, one that Habakkuk was DISCOVERING as he “wrestled with God”, learning to EMBRACE GOD’S WAYS. Because God is ALWAYS, ALWAYS faithful to HIS COVENANTS, all destruction that comes upon Judah (Jerusalem) and Ephraim (Gentile believers in Yeshua (Jesus)) will be limited and will be used to BRING THEM BACK to GOD (FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT). God has planned a wonderful future of COMPLETE RESTORATION for ISRAEL and all of His Covenant people (New Covenant).
But….those who REJECT GOD (FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT) and CHOOSE to REMAIN OUTSIDE of HIS Covenants, BABYLON and all unbelievers, well, they face GOD’S WRATH. God’s WRATH towards the unrepentant sinner will be merciless. When God’s WRATH is poured out, it’s NOT about correction, it’s about JUDGEMENT.
Revelation 11:18: And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”
We want to be very careful not to mistake God’s patience with sinners for apathy, acceptance or approval of sin!
Habakkuk was given a vision and told to WAIT for it..although there would appear to be a DELAY, it WILL COME..at the APPOINTED TIME. God is very, very patient, waiting desiring that MORE would be saved. God takes no pleasure in the DEATH of the WICKED. His Wrath is as sure as His Mercy, and will come at the APPOINTED TIME.
Some might say..“Hey, those prophecies in Habakkuk were fulfilled when God used physical Babylon to chastise and exile Judah (Jerusalem), and then He used the Medes and the Persians to conquer Babylon“. True; HOWEVER, as it is with many of the Old Testament prophecies, there is a “then time” and an “end time” fulfillment. God’s Word is LIVING, ACTIVE, and SHARPER than any double edged sword.
Habakkuk’s prophecy for Jerusalem and Babylon are EXTREMELY RELEVANT in our world today! Clearly the Apostle Paul believed that there would be a LAST DAYS fulfillment of Habakkuk’s prophecy when he quoted Habakkuk’s words in Acts, 13:41 (see below)…
Acts 13:38: Therefore let it be known to you, brothers, that through Him (Jesus Christ) forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 39 and through Him (Jesus Christ) everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.
40 Therefore, see that the thing spoken of in the Prophets does not come upon you:
41 ‘Look, you scoffers, and be astonished, and perish;
For I am accomplishing a work in your days,
A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’”
Once again, God Almighty is going to do a work in OUR DAYS that we wouldn’t believe EVEN THOUGH we HAVE been told. The pattern of Habakkuk’s days is repeating. God is RAISING UP MYSTERY BABYLON and USING THEM them to CHASTISE His people. MYSTERY BABYLON, the false economic, religious and political system of the world–otherwise known as the NEW WORLD ORDER– will SWOOP DOWN like a SWIFT EAGLE to DELIVER PUNISHMENT to God’s wayward people.
But….then MYSTERY BABYLON will be held GUILTY!
Habakkuk 2:4: “Behold, as for the impudent one,
His soul is not right within him;
But the righteous one will live by his faith.
The 5 Woes of HABAKKUK – EXPOSING AND DESTROYING “BABYLON”
Woe #1 (A kingdom built on theft, greed, debt and looting will themselves be looted and plundered)
HABAKKUK 2:6 ‘Woe to him who increases what is not his—
For how long—
And makes himself rich with debts!’ (This is an ackward translation. The phrase is an idiom that applies to extortion).
7 Will your creditors not rise up suddenly,
And those who collect from you awaken?
Indeed, you will become plunder for them.
8 Since you have looted many nations,
All the rest of the peoples will loot you—
Because of human bloodshed and violence done to the land,
To the town and all its inhabitants.
Greed IS Idolatry to God. God says woe to him who takes what is not his. Woe to the one who makes himself rich with debts, corruption and extortion, who LOOTS many nations. They will become PLUNDER for the very nations that they have looted.
Woe #2: (A Kingdom built on THEFT and a selfish DEPOPULATION SCHEME will be EXPOSED).
HABAKKUK 2:9: Woe to him who makes evil profit for his household,
To put his nest on high,
To be saved from the hand of catastrophe!
10 You have planned a shameful thing for your house
By bringing many peoples to an end;
So you are sinning against yourself.
11 For the stone will cry out from the wall,
And the rafter will answer it from the framework.
When I read these verses in Habakkuk, my mind instantly goes to the wealthy cabals who created the planned Pandemic that has claimed many lives. They are the very ones forcing an UNSAFE and UNTESTED vaccine on BILLIONS of people, claiming that they are “safe, effective, and rigorously tested”. Let’s face it…the very ones who brought us the manmade virus that “escaped” from a lab, brought us the vaccine!! The vaccine was the PLAN all along, ALSO the shutdowns, coming economic reset, and ultimately TRACKING DEVICES/MARK OF THE BEAST! These Covid vaccines they are touting are NOT rigorously tested, they are EXPERIMENTAL vaccines with brand new Mrna (MODIFY RNA) technology that will literally write code into people’s bodies FOREVER. They are not trying to SAVE people! If they had been, they would NOT have censored information about a safe and effective TREATMENT that has been available for 50 years. How many lives have needlessy been lost because of their EVIL and WICKED treachery?
These wicked elite are the SAME ONES who pretend that they can ‘FIX’ climate change with ‘green energy’, wind turbines, electric cars, and BIOMASS FUEL. They know perfectly well that they are destroying the planet, CULLING HUMANITY, and that there is NO HUMAN REMEDY for the RAPING of the world’s NATURAL RESOURCES. They KNOW that the limited resources on planet earth CANNOT sustain 7 billion people (and growing). In a leaked video by Project veritas (who was subsequently banned from Social Media for leaking the video)…a CNN employee disclosed the truth stating ” after they are done “MILKING THE VIRUS”, they will PUSH THE GREEN AGENDA!
The evil elite will tell you that this is a “crazy conspiracy theory”, but the problem is there is DOCUMENTED, VIDEO EVIDENCE of them stating these VERY things from their own MOUTHS. However, DO NOT DESPAIR.... God Almighty KNEW thousands of years before we reached this point what they (satan and his minions) would do in THESE LAST DAYS, and God INSTRUCTED his PROPHETS to WRITE ABOUT IT in HIS WORD to warn and prepare us – PRAISE THE LORD!!! This is why the ONLY WAY to be ‘not deceived’ is to KNOW GOD’S WORD.
The more WICKED and EVIL MANKIND GROWS, the more the EARTH GROANS and TREMBLES with the weight of SIN. What they call Climate Change was prophesied in Hosea 4 and is a consequence of INCREASING SIN ON THE EARTH.
Hosea 4:1: Listen to the word of the Lord, you sons of Israel,
Because the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the land, (earth)
For there is no faithfulness, nor loyalty,
Nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 There is oath-taking, denial, murder, stealing, and adultery.
They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Therefore the land mourns, (THE EARTH MOURNS)
And everyone who lives in it languishes
Along with the animals of the field and the birds of the sky,
And even the fish of the sea disappear.
If ALL the inhabitants of the earth were to receive Jesus Christ, repent of sin, and change direction, climate change would be no more. But that’s not going to happen UNTIL the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ who WILL heal the LAND when HE returns!
As Habakkuk wrote around 2,600 years ago, The WEALTHY, ELITE CABAL (MYSTERY BABYLON) lie and devise a wicked plan to SAVE THEMSELVES by DEPOPULATING the planet so that they can horde the world’s precious resources for THEMSELVES. Look at “their” ten commandments listed on the Mysterious Georgia Guidestones:
“Commandment #1: Maintain humanity under 500 MILLION in perpetual balance with nature”.
Did you watch the short video above (CULLING THE POPULATION OF THE WORLD)? CHILLING! There are OVER 7 BILLION people on the planet NOW, and while they PRETEND to tackle GLOBAL PANDEMICS and CLIMATE CHANGE, they are quietly USING these “CRISES” to hide the truth and redirect our gaze while they DEPOPULATE the earth. Why? Because of LIMITED RESOURCES. – They have NO REMEDY for Climate Change. Their GREEN ENERGY “SOLUTIONS” will only make the problem WORSE – THEY KNOW THAT! They also know that the PLANNED mRNA vaccine will only make the PLANNED pandemic worse! There may be some short term gains, but they have more “waves” planned, ones that won’t be covered by the current vaccine. They (Mystery Babylon) KNOW that the vaccine will cause INFERTILITY and autoimmune diseases. They are using climate change, “green energy”, and this planned pandemic / vaccine as TOOLS to IMPLEMENT their EVIL and WICKED AGENDA!
At the same time, they are pushing ungodly, antichrist values because they ALSO KNOW that God will REMOVE HIS HAND of PROTECTION from His people if they can TEMPT enough of us to SIN and REJECT GOD’S WAYS, HIS WORD, HIS PRECEPTS – SO FAR, THEIR EVIL PLANS APPEAR TO BE WORKING.
- CallING good evil and evil good…“Fundamentally change the Judeo/Christian values of the world” utilizing Propaganda, Social Media, RE-education, indoctrination SO THAT people will EMBRACE SIN as “good” and REJECT JESUS CHRIST (TRUE, BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY) as “narrow minded, bigoted, racist, homophobic, misogynist, etc. – This way, God will REMOVE His Hand of protection, and WHEN TROUBLE COMES – God won’t help them. In-fact, with enough indoctrination,time, censorship, mankind won’t even think to CALL UPON GOD’S NAME for help! It’s like removing baby lion cubs from it’s mother. They are now vulnerable and helpless – perfect PREY for HUNGRY WOLVES.
- CreatING a global pandemic that will “never go away“. Require and NORMALIZE CONTROL MEASURES (new normal), lockdowns, vaccines, tracking and tracing. This will facilitate the “The Great reset” where they will have FULL CONTROL. And people are scared enough to WILLINGLY give it to them because now people no longer TRUST in JESUS CHRIST. This will facilitate the mark of the beast when it comes on the scene. – “they”become the saviors.
- Knowing that the increasing level of sin is causing “CLIMATE CHANGE“, blame it on MANKIND, on fossil fuels. Then SECRETLY use MORE fossil fuels to PRETEND to tackle “CLIMATE CHANGE”, while SECRETLY DESTROYING the worlds forests (BIOFUEL). Green energy is the FAKE PLAN to PUSH to the world (CNN/MAIN STREAM MEDIA). It is the SMOKE SCREEN. The TRUE PLAN is to depopulate the earth so that fewer people will be alive to use its dwindling resources. Oh, and as people DIE...use THEIR remains to FERTILIZE the soil! (https://www.wnd.com/2021/04/colorado-bill-allow-human-remains-composted/)
You see, the WICKED satan worshipers KNOW that God is real – they just HATE HIM….and they HATE US. They don’t want US to know that God is real because then more would worship Him and their evil, wicked plans would be EXPOSED, CRUSHED and DESTROYED!
If you watched the video above, you HEARD that the elite ADMIT having a plan to KILL 1/3 of the planet’s current population, which matches the 6th Trumpet of Revelation….However, the Georgia Guidestones tell an even grimmer tale, that they really want to keep the global population UNDER 500 Million, which would require killing alot more than just 1/3 of the global population. We should be very thankful that God WILL SHORTEN the days of their reign to only 3.5 years, because the Bible tells us that if HE didn’t, NO FLESH would survive!
Revelation 9:18: A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire, the smoke, and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.
Matthew 24:22: And if those days had not been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
DO NOT FEAR! Our God (FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT) is THE ONLY TRUE GOD…and HIS ETERNAL PLANS WILL STAND. – NOT THEIRS!!! Their “kingdom” that they are laboring so long and hard for, will only last for 3.5 years (1260 days)! God’s Word is TRUE! ELOHIM (FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT) is GOD OVER ALL! GOD IS USING ‘MYSTERY BABYLON” as HIS ROD of CORRECTION – but HE will ULTIMATELY DESTROY THEM and “her smoke” will go up FOREVER and EVER and EVER. When God judges Mystery Babylon (THE BEAST KINGDOM/NEW WORLD ORDER), her only inhabitants will be WILD BEASTS and BIRDS, meaning that God will no longer consider those who “dwell in her”…. HUMAN.
Revelation 18:2: . And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
Revelation 18:21 Then a strong angel picked up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will never be found again.
God will not allow this evil and wickedness to continue forever. God says “WOE, to those who build their kingdom (MYSTERY BABYLON) on BLOODSHED (manmade pandemics, endless wars, race wars). This is VAPOR. Their kingdom is a blip on the radar of Eternity. They will NOT LAST.
The EARTH will be FILLED with the KNOWLEDGE of the GLORY OF THE LORD…This is a PROMISE! 💖
Woe #3: A kingdom built on bloodshed and violence will be a blip on the radar (but the Kingdom of God will display HIS GLORY and IS ETERNAL)
HABAKKUK 2:12: Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed,
And founds a town with violence!
13 Is it not indeed from the Lord of armies
That peoples labor merely for fire,
And nations become weary for nothing?
14 For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.
Woe #4: A kingdom built on MANIPULATION and LUST FOR POWER will be EXPOSED!
HABAKKUK 15:“Woe to him who makes his neighbor drink;
To you who mix in your venom even to make your neighbors drunk,
So as to look at their genitalia!
16 You will be filled with disgrace rather than honor.
Drink, you yourself, and expose your own foreskin!
The cup in the Lord’s right hand will come around to you,
And utter disgrace will come upon your glory.
17 For the violence done to Lebanon will overwhelm you,
And the devastation of its animals by which you terrified them,
Because of human bloodshed and violence done to the land,
To the town and all its inhabitants.
Woe #5: IDOLATRY: A kingdom that exalts a false god of money, greed and power, has no life and cannot SAVE. It is worthless
HABAKKUK 2:19: Woe to him who says to a piece of wood, ‘Awake!’
To a mute stone, ‘Arise!’
That is your teacher?
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
Yet there is no breath at all inside it.
But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth be silent before Him.”
As a Spirit-filled, born again believer it is shocking to look around at our world today. It is especially disheartening to witness the spiritual condition of the Church. The Church (Ekklesia) is supposed to be the “called out ones”, living differently than the world, as residents of the Kingdom of Heaven. But like ancient Judah, that’s not happening. Like ancient Judah, America, Europe and other Christian nations, have turned their backs on their Christian roots and are instead embracing a godless, antichrist agenda.
In the book of Revelation we learn that Mystery Babylon, God’s punishing rod, has made all the nations of the earth DRUNK on the wine of her fornication. God has allowed her to be an influencer on this earth as He separates the sheep and the goats. This is why God warns HIS PEOPLE in Revelation 18 to COME OUT of BABYLON because she WILL be JUDGED!
Revelation 18:4: I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive any of her plagues;
Lies and deception has become the norm in these LAST DAYS. Idolatry BEGINS with LIES. Mystery Babylon has been lurking in the background since the Tower of Babel, but in these last days she’s really found her voice. Utilizing technology, social media and her vast funding /financing, she has sadly REshaped the values of billions of people around the world. Those who do NOT know Jesus Christ are HAPPY to embrace her sin and REJECT Judeo/Christian values.
2 Thessalonians 2:10: and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not accept the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
A large chunk of America (and the world) has been “fundamentally transformed” into an antichrist nation, and the portion who still embraces Jesus Christ is being maligned, silenced, censored, and shut down.
As the days ahead get darker, the key verse in this chapter will become all the more important. That is, ‘the righteous shall live by their faith‘. It will become critical that the believer has a close walk with the Lord and can trust Him and His sovereign Will despite all that occurs on this planet. Our hope is in the return of the Lord soon! Maranatha!
