Victory Over Wickedness

by John and Ruth Greene

false-weight-justiceHabakkuk was full of doubt. He couldn’t understand why Elohim [YHWH] would allow so much evil to exist. Why do evil people prosper while the remnant of the righteous struggle? Habakkuk felt compromised and alone. The nation about him was full of strife and perversion. His concerns threatened to undermine his belief, which would cause him to rebel against YHWH. (“Living in an Apostate World“; “Rebellion of Jews & Romans“; “Incentives of Deception“)

“Why do You make me watch such terrible injustice? Why do You allow violence, lawlessness, crime, and cruelty to spread everywhere? Laws cannot be enforced; justice is always the loser; criminals crowd out honest people and twist the laws around.” – Habakkuk 1:3-4 – CEV (Contemporary English Version)

He did not understand what was going on, why Elohim was allowing justice to be perverted. In spite of this painful condition around him, He wasn’t afraid to ask questions of his Heavenly Father. He knew that he had limited understanding. The answer? YHWH was doing right even though this was not immediately understood. Habakkuk had to wait on YHWH’s timing for these unbelievable events as His people became an enslaved nation under the authority of wickedness! YHWH’s people would lose the luxury of ‘self-rule’ during their lifetime. The nation would fall, just as the Twin Towers in New York fell in the United States more than 2000 years later. (“The Antichrist & the War on Reality“; “Learning to Live Outside of Blind Justice“; “Video: A History of Justice“; “Leadership & the Universal Authority of Christ“)

“Look and be amazed at what’s happening among the nations! Even if you were told, you would never believe what’s taking place now. I am sending the Babylonians. They are fierce and cruel– marching across the land, conquering cities and towns… How fearsome and frightening. Their only laws and rules are the ones they make up.” – Habakkuk 1:4-5, 7 – CEV

Babylon-cityThe nations of YHWH’s people had come to the point of worshiping themselves in rebellion to YHWH. In response, He promised to use Babylon, a people that worshiped their own strength (a god of fortresses), to punish the last of those that professed to be Elohim’s people in Judah. These Babylonians relished taking captives into their treacherous control. (“The Idolatry Factor“; “Video: What is Idolatry?“; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“)

“Then an enemy comes along and takes them captive with hooks and nets. It makes him so happy that he offers sacrifices to his fishing nets, because they make him rich and provide choice foods.” – Habakkuk 1:15-16, CEV

Babylon-enslaveIn response to their sin, YHWH said that He would punish Babylon. Those that glorified themselves would be brought low. Habakkuk didn’t understand why YHWH would use Babylon to punish in such a way, and then to punish the destroyer in return. Why was such violence necessary? Remember when you ask a question of your Heavenly Father, the answer may not come when you expect or be what you expect. (“Understanding Sin“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “Holy Spirit 101“)

The rod that YHWH chooses against rebellious men is of His choice and making. All were being punished because they were all evil, separated from YHWH instead of being set apart to Him. This was the case even though a comparative remnant of His devoted people still existed. Just as it was then, so it will be today. (“Truth About YHWH’s Wrath“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“)

lukewarmYour trust in your Father goes beyond the unpleasantness of life. The world of man seems to prosper with iniquity and injustice. The watchmen of YHWH see this reality and proclaim this while there is still time for you to take appropriate action! The world must be filled with the glory of YHWH, coming through His Kingdom at the end of this current age of man. (Habakkuk 2:1, 14, 19-20; “The Call of YHWH’s Watchman“; “Christian Discipleship: You are a Spiritual Watchman“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“)

The wickedness of the world is like death that cannot be satisfied. (Habakkuk 2:5) Babylon was puffed up with evil ways, just as the rulers of this age are. They are drunk with pride and seek to gather and rule the world. This fits the world situation today. Corporations and their nations have plundered many peoples. For example, the shameful imperialism of the Corporate Empire of the Beast has perverted justice for as long as can be remembered in the name of justice, security and rightness. The world of man has been and continues to be built upon a system of false weights, a design of false economy that polices the world of man. This has easily been going on since the time of the Roman Empire since the time of Christ. In the eyes of YHWH, they will hang themselves through their own covetous arrogance, the victim of their own plundering. (Habakkuk 2:9) Is this system of false weights what you trust? Do you trust the provision of your Heavenly Father over what you do with your own hands? Think about it. (“Your Bank Account“; “Are You a Christian First or Last?“; “The Image & Mark of the Beast System“; “Globalization Associated with Poverty & Oppression“; “Wall Street Greed Creates Hunger“)

“Will not all these take up a proverb against him, and a taunting riddle against him, and say, ‘ Woe to him who increases what is not his — how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges’? Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. Because you have plundered many nations, all the remnant of the people shall plunder you, because of men’s blood and the violence of the land and the city, and of all who dwell in it…Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed, who establishes a city by iniquity!” – Habukkuk 2:6-8, 12, CEV

war heats up Middle East - IranMan’s system exalts power and control, laboring to feed the fires of nationalism, patriotism, materialism and the designs for wealth and prestige as they weary themselves in vain. They are filled with shame instead of the holiness and knowledge of YHWH. Their glory is in their own temporary significance, a lie of propagandists. In the end, they will succumb to the power and control of other men until the end of their disgrace. (Job 4:8; Proverbs 11:18, 22:8) Can you see this? (“Approved: Lie Cheat & Steal“; “Bible Prophecy and the Rise of the Corporation“; “Mind Control of the Beast“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“)

government-idolatryThey will meet their end through YHWH’s judgment. (Habukkuk 2:15-17) There is a law of return for the filth of perversion upon the rule of the world. (Matthew 26:52; John 10:10; Luke 6:38; Galatians 6:7-9) They will reap the curse of nations because they delight in their own commandments. (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Proverbs 16:18) The image of the corporation and the image of nations that men have carved are teachers of lies, a bastion of false trust that seeks to substitute itself for the Messiah and the power of the Holy Spirit. These idols of the antichrist are silent except for the voices of the men that extol them. (Habakkuk 2:18-19) As it stands, the world of man is literally full of idol worship, in bondage to images of man’s creation and lust for power. (Matthew 7:13-21, 13:22; 2 Timothy 4:2-4; Galatians 6:8; Hosea 4:6; “Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“; “Choosing to Serve YHWH, Not Man“; “The Wheels of Ezekiel“; “YHWH’s Threshing Floor“; “Christian: Your Basis of Trust“)

self-deceptionYHWH measures all and He will startle all that look to themselves. He will strike the head from the house of the wicked. The earth changes, but Elohim is forever. (Habakkuk 3:6, 13) He is the ultimate force to be reckoned with. He is real and alive, powerful and full of righteousness. He is Almighty above all, as is His provision for His remnant of people. The idols of men don’t save. They are imaginary, machinations of a distracted and distressed world bent on temporary wealth as they reap long-term self-destruction. YHWH gives His people sure-footed confidence, even during the most difficult of times – yet, in His time. Your questions about what you should do are answered in scripture and through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Are you asking God like Habakkuk did, even when you are discouraged as Habakkuk was?(“YHWH’s Protection in Difficult Times; “Going through the Valleys of Difficulty“)

Yahshua [Jesus] struck the head of the house of the wicked by illuminating them, exposing them. YHWH provides the answers and the provision, even when Satan and his agents seem to be winning. In this day Christians must live in the strength of YHWH’s Spirit as they stand firm against the wiles of Satan and his agents. Genuine Christians can rejoice in the Elohim of salvation, the victory over evil! (Mark 16:16; Galatians 6:9; Ephesians 5:11, 6:10-18; 1 Corinthians 15:57; Romans 8:39; Habakkuk 3:17-19; Deuteronomy 20:4; “Abiding in Trust“; “A Branch of the Vine through Trust“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “YHWH is Your Shield and Salvation“; “Roots of Salvation“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“; “YHWH’s Faithful: Victory in Spiritual Battle“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
