“Suddenly the Debtors Will Arise: the Vision of Habakkuk the Prophet” will soon be available in both book and movie versions. I’ve taken a three month break from my writing here about jubilee to work on a verse-by-verse exposition of this most important but overlooked Bible prophecy.
Let’s begin at the end of Habakkuk’s vision. In his last couple of verses Habakkuk says that if the economy completely collapses and he loses everything that he will still rejoice:
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
able to tread upon the heights.
Habakkuk is the contemporary prophet for this time of economic and monetary chaos. Habakkuk declared that in the time of trouble he would be empowered to do the seemingly impossible and make great progress.
The most important question you should be asking yourself right now in this time of economic stress is whether you will choose to have the attitude of Habakkuk or lose it all:
If the economy continues its collapse into depression and it looks like you are about to lose everything, will you curse God and die or rise up and be a part of the solution?
Here is a small excerpt from the first chapter of my book:
Run with the Vision
The Vision of Habakkuk, written around 620 B.C., reveals a prophecy of a sudden awakening and a worldwide debtor’s revolt at an appointed time in the far distant future. This great awakening of the debtors is the key event to the collapse of a secretive world-controlling system that has been plundering the wealth of nations throughout history.
Habakkuk was instructed to write the vision in big letters on tablets, making it plain (easy to understand) so that all that read it can run with it, communicating the message to others:
Write the Vision and make it plain
upon tablets, that he may run that reads it.
For the Vision is for an appointed time.
And it is not a lie. Wait for it, because it
Will surely come to pass, and not delay
When the time is right.
Here is the core of the prophecy announcing the great awakening:
Woe to the proud, who has taken what is not his,
Making himself rich with loans.
Suddenly the debtors will awake, as a man out of sleep,
And they will bite him back, in an instant.
As he has ruined the nations, so the nations will ruin him.
The prophecy further declares that when you first hear of it, that you will not believe it, but that it will absolutely come to pass. When this event does occur, it will be a wonderful providential blessing for all mankind:
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge
of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
The purpose of this book is to make the Vision plain so that you may clearly understand it and run with it. For the prophecy invites those with understanding to run with it, to play a part in its transmission.
