Scenario 1, 587BC: Israel is God's people and the godless nation is Babylon. This is Habakkuk's story.
Scenario 2, 70AD: The New Testament quotes Habakkuk (in Romans 1:17 and Hebrews 10:35-39) to show that a similar scenario has arisen in its time. Israel is God's people and now the godless nation is Rome. In this scenario, the 'righteous people' who survive by faith are those who put their faith in Jesus, escaping judgment on 'the Jew first' in 70AD when the Romans sacked Jerusalem. Paul (and the Book of Revelation) goes on to proclaim that the whole Greco-Roman empire will experience the wrath of God but once again, the 'just shall survive by faithful endurance'. [That's a whole new way of interpreting the New Testament, but I think it is right. See Andrew Perriman's blogs on this here]
Scenario 3, 2021: The church is God's people but there's a problem; while meant be God’s witness to his own name and glory, it has earned the contempt of the world. They discriminate, they protect their sinners while abandoning their victims, they want to spank their children, they want to keep women in inferior roles while elevating the patriarchy, they want to practise conversion therapy that hurts and distresses troubled people, some of their leaders are getting fat and rich on the gullible while doing nothing to help the poor. And they frequently deny science and promote climate and pandemic denial theories.
So, according to the chart, God will punish the church by allowing the godless State to pass laws demanding that the church changes - that's not as bad as the other scenarios where war and destruction ensued!
So the church complains, hey, the State is godless and worse than us - God! Are you seeing this?
And according to the chart, God's response will be to punish the State, probably in history and in reality. We can expect modern Western civilisation to be brought to its knees by, I don't know, natural disasters - floods, fires, droughts, earthquakes - or maybe some kind of pandemic...
But God will save those people who are faithful/trustful/humble and endure suffering and rejection with humility and courage.
In the post-apocalyptic world, those people will be bastions of integrity, community, kindness and trustworthiness. Through them God will rebuild the world and God's name will be honoured.
Be patient. Do not shrink back. Watch and wait. Keep faith. Build faith communities that can serve and survive.
Welcome to my apocalypse!
