Great word for the day. Our Gpd is to be praised. He is amazing. I love your final statement. So true. "Oh, all glory, praise and honor to Him Who sits on the Throne, yet knows little old me. Amen."

When Jesus Became Like Us

Bernie, The Day of the Lord, commencing post Rapture, and ending with the glorious entry into the Millennial Kingdom, a kingdom also described in the Bible as a time when Christ will rule and justice will have been served, are bookends to what is described by Habakkuk in your post. Before the true peace, justice, and beauty of Messiahs reign on earth (Rev. 20:1-6) can come their will be pain and judgment. What Habakkuk sees and what Isaiah was shown in Isa. 24 are scenes of rebellion and sin being put down and quashed. It is only by God's grace that this has not yet happened. The fact is, God loves humanity so much that His desire is to see them turn to Christ before He finally has to destroy the rebellion and oppression that humanity has and is serving to one another.
Right now, the world is speedily racing toward turning the commandments of God on their head. The allowance of immorality to override the natural and just order of things is what is driving this and we know it is from the evil one. But soon the evil will be put down. Unfortunately for the masses, at that time, most will have not turned to Christ in repentance and sorrow for their sin. They will not have realized and agreed with His "right to rule" and King, Lord. and Savior. Without God in their sights, all caution is thrown to the wind and all stops are removed. This is where we are and it is where the world will be when the Rapture occurs and all that is left on the earth at that moment are unbelievers. But God will raise up two witnesses and seal another 144,000 to preach the everlasting gospel to all those who are lost. He never leaves humanity without a way of escape. As John says, many will hear their words and be refined. They will turn, but the vast majority will not. The judgment you describe makes its finally appearance at the Second Coming Rev. 19:11, and the Lord appears to end all the rebellion. 
One of my favorite passages is John's description of the tribulation saints, those who turn their hearts to Christ during the days of tribulation judgment, 

9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:
    “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
    Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
    Be to our God forever and ever.
    Amen.”
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

The New King James Version (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1982), Re 7:9–17.

Ole salty Palti! Good stuff Brother! The lesson here is this – we lose EVERYTHING when we put our heads in the sand and pretend God sees nothing, knows nothing and will say nothing. He – God – always has the final word, and if we line up on the wrong side of Him, we too will pay a heavy price. AMEN!!!!

  When asked as a pastor, to express with sincerity the lingering trauma that consumes the soul when a life-altering event makes its appearance, I would use the word "Numbness" to describe it and I am not alone. Many people describe the after-effects of tra...
