    • 2 Pages

    My prophet project is Habakkuk. Habakkuk “complains” to God about the injustices being committed by the Babylonians. Habakkuk was a prophet in the Old Testament. He is the author of the Book of Habakkuk. Almost nothing is known about Habakkuk, aside from what few facts are stated in the book Habakkuk within the Old Testament, or those inferences that may be drawn from that book.His name appears in the Bible only in Habakkuk 1:1 and 3:1, with no biographical details provided other than his title "the prophet." Even the origin of his name is unknown. For almost every other prophet, more information is given, such as the name of the prophet's hometown, his occupation, or information concerning his parentage or tribe. For Habakkuk, however,…

    It's a challenge to believe what you cannot see. Furthermore, to be courageous enough to act upon a word spoken to your heart.

    When God makes the rainbow a sign of the covenant, he says it will be a reminder to him to never destroy the earth by flood again. How will this beautiful optical masterpiece remind him of destruction? What else does scripture have to say about the rainbow? There is a mention of the rainbow in the book of Habakkuk. Put into context, Habakkuk, the prophet (whose name means to wrestle) is frustrated with why God permits evil to exist and seemingly go unpunished. He “wrestles” with the…

    The article I completed my research on was “ Isaiah 14 and Habakkuk 2: Two Taunt songs against the same tyrant?” In this article the author contrasts Isaiah 14 and Habakkuk 2 and speaks on the similarities between the two rulers mentioned. The reason for comparing Isaiah 14 and Habakkuk 2 is because of the prominent monarch figure in both of the passages and the taunt songs that accompany it. Even though Isaiah and Habakkuk were written by different people, the author of this article makes his…

This section in Genesis of the Bible focuses on the offerings to God and why Noah should obey his command. There are several verses of God speaking to Noah telling him what is to become of him…

    "You always need to find a means to love everyone" this quote is the most common thing I hear come out of my hero's mouth.
