Habakkuk 3:3 (NKJV) God came from Teman, The Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His glory covered the heavens, And the earth was full of His praise.
Teman city was in the southern region of Edom, East of Israel. The statement, “God came from Teman,” is a word picture of God’s splendor appearing out of the East like the rising sun breaking the darkness of captivity in Babylon, and shinning upon His people like a beam of hope. God’s splendor is like the sunrise initiating a new day, filling the heavens with His glory and giving hope to His people. When Hababkkuk says, “The Holy One from Mount Paran.” Habakkuk is saying that God brought His people out of Egypt, and God has the power and ability to bring His people out of Babylon and back to the Promised Land. After years of darkness in captivity, God will bring the sunrise of freedom to His people. This is the important thing to understand about this verse. Although, God has disciplined His people, He never stopped loving them. God will bring them back into a right relationship with Him, and God’s praise will be in their hearts once again. My friends, as God dealt rightly with the people of Israel, God will deal with us rightly as well, because God loves all of His children. Oh, how wonderful is our God.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
