NAS Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
September 24
Habakkuk 2:3
3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.”
Read Habakkuk 2

*Of course in just the OT context this had a Babylonian fulfillment, but God’s eschatological judgment also still awaits fulfillment in the Time of the Gentiles, with too National Israel! (See too Isa. 11: 9-12)

“A permanent method in the divine government of the earth. Israel is always the centre of the divine counsels earthward (Deut. 32: 8). The Gentile nations are permitted to affect Israel in chastisement for her national sins, but invariably and inevitably retribution falls on them.” (See Gen. 15: 13-14 ; Deut. 30: 5-7 ; Isa. 14: 1-2 ; Joel 3: 1-8 ; Micah 5: 7-9 ; Matt. 25: 31-46)

  1. Surely God is going to Judge all the Nations in the End, with Israel being of course the centre! The Prophetic is always Israel first, then the Nations, and how they treat Israel.
