QUESTION IT ALL

(HABAKKUK)

by

Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid (May 11, 2015)

“The Lord God is my strength, and he will make mine feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments” (Habakkuk 3:19, King James Version [God's judgment against Judah]).

Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus,

My sisters and brothers, how often do you dialogue with God? Do you talk to God as Habakkuk did in the days of the old prophets? Do you hear his answers? Is it possible for you, to see the vision, even the answers to all your questions?

Question it all to find your truth---not the truth that they gave you in wickedness and iniquity but God's truth---the vision and your answers to all your questions. Do not hold back---question it all---all that you see, the burden of the vision, so that your heart no longer yearns to seek out the truth. “Question the slacked law, question terrible and dreadful judgments withheld proceeding out of indignant heathens, question how the wicked circle around the righteous---driving back and forth for all to see them in the pride of their wicked intentions to do you harm either by their lying tongues or their treacherous acts, question disbelief in God's divine works, question their violent intent, question their captivity---all those who lost their freedom (liberty) at the hands of the wicked, question their disrespect of kings, heads-of-state, presidents, and leaders, question those princes who are a scorn unto them, question how the wicked mind changes, question how the wicked pass over---right pass you, question how the wicked offend you, question how the wicked charges that his posture and behavior of hatred is his power unto his god---denying the living God you serve, question how the wicked devourest the man that is more righteous than he is, question how the wicked make men like they have no ruler---without their God, question the drag net used by the wicked to catch men like fishes, question how the wicked do not spare and continue to slay the nations. Question it all!” (chapter 1, KJV).

Is this your story? Is history repeating itself in your life? Has God judged you and sent the wicked to rule over and oppress you to every end of His judgment---even denying that your God will have mercy on you? Who among you will stand as the prophet Habakkuk stood to watch over Judah in the days of old? What will God say to you? What will be God's answers to all your questions?

Do you have the strength to stand before God as he reproves you and all those you represent (your people)? And, when God lets you see your judgment---the vision of your death and destruction---his judgment over you, can you still stand to write the vision down on tablets for all to read it, knowing they will run away---try to escape the judgment God made for their wicked ways. Remember the saying, “You can dish it out but you can not take it.” Did you let the temptations of the world come between you and your God? Will the world save you when your God sends the wicked to gather you up as sand and when your God sends the wicked to catch you up in a drag net like fishes?
