God is angry, wrathful, and jealous. These aren’t attributes we often think about because they make us uncomfortable, but they’re important characteristics of God’s holiness. Imagine God’s holiness in the midst of sin if he wasn’t wrathful against it. Consider the love of God if he was not angry about injustice. How could anyone imagine that God truly wants what is best for his children if he isn’t jealous of our worship when it is instead given to idols. Remember, God’s passions and emotions are unchanging because they are absolutely perfect – his love doesn’t wax and wane depending on his mood; and his anger doesn’t flare up simply because he’s been offended.

Asking raw and honest questions about suffering can seem faithless and inappropriate in church, but these are literally the questions that drive Habakkuk’s prophecy. We don’t know much about the prophet, but we can best place Habakkuk’s ministry in the early 600’s after Assyria (who conquered the Northern Kingdom of Israel in 722BC) had been conquered by the Babylonian Empire. The Babylonians (also called the Chaldeans) were threatening to come in and do to the Southern Kingdom of Judah what Assyria did to Israel. Fear ruled the day, and other prophets like Jeremiah, Zephaniah, and Daniel were actively warning Israel about coming judgment.

David Brickner with Jews for Jesus says, “the profound significance of the term “remnant” is a biblical term too often overlooked today. Throughout Scripture God deals with two groups of people: ‘the remnant’ and ‘the rest’. In the Hebrew Scriptures, the word ‘remnant’ usually describes those among the nation of Israel who survived the calamity of Gods judgment or remained faithful to the Lord.”
