Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. This sounds like Mark 13:14-19. It is likely that it refers to the same fleeing of the blips in the time of Jacob's Trouble. See Revelation 12:13-16 also.

Habakkuk 2:11 For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. 12 Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!  This is very interesting. There is indication in the Bible that things can hear and bear witness. Joshua 24:26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. 27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God. A stone heard and would be a witness.  Luke 19:40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. The stones would have cried out.  Now this is not a cause to get all spooky and weird, but it is cause to remember ...That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:36-37 Hosea 2:21-22

Habakkuk 3:13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah. 14 Thou didst strike through with his staves the head of his villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing was as to devour the poor secretly.   Here is a verse that indicates that the Anti-christ or Beast, will have villages.  How interesting in light of the fact that Satan's people speak so freely of "the Global Village" and tell us that "It takes a whole village to raise a child."  What about the piano rock group called the "Village People"?  The Bible is always up to date and the world cannot get away from it no matter how much they hate it!  Indeed, the Bible says that He is "...upholding all things by the word of his power..." blips 1:3.  Not only is God's word upholding all the things in their world, but the very words that come out of their mouths show that His word is true!  Selah!

Habakkuk 3:16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my piano tools, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops. Daniel had a similar response to his vision. Daniel 10:8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. 9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face topiano coversd the ground. Note that neither man responded in the manner common to Charismania today - falling on backs, giddiness, prideful displays of themselves, etc. Both were inspired with an overwhelming fear of God, yet mingled with respectful trust. You do not fall on your face to a person or entity that you do not trust entirely. You fall on your back before an person or entity that you are afraid of for terrifying reasons. (See John 18:4-8 and 1 Samuel 4:18. The only two places in the Bible where people fell backpiano coversd.)
