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.

Jonah probably the worst and most successful missionary of all time. He was the worst because he literally ran the opposite direction because he despised and hated those he was called to minister unto. In many ways, we can think about Jonah as the “racist prophet,” because he didn’t believe the people of Ninevah (the capital of Assyria) were worthy of salvation. Hosea had already prophesied that Assyria would be the instrument of God’s judgment on Israel – is it any wonder that Jonah wanted to see them destroyed.
