Recognizing Good News in Prophetic Judgement
October 16, 2015 • Habakkuk 2:20
A prophet's job was to warn God's people of his coming judgement, so there are some pretty dismal, gloomy passages in the Old Testament that list sin after sin after sin. When we read Habakkuk's warnings, it's easy to recognize the sins in our lives and our world today. But rather than ignore these difficult to read passages, we should turn to them first when we need hope for the state of the world today. If we do, we'll uncover seeds of hope and begin to recognize the good news inherent within the warnings.
