"I will stand upon my watch." The words of the Prophet of the LORD, Habakkuk.
This great man of God, lived in troubling times; similar to today. The wicked appeared to be prospering and the people living in bondage.
Hab.2:1 "I will stand [take a stand; Right-standing-attitude] upon my watch [to look out or about; close attention, observe] and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see [look at, inspect, discern, perceive, consider, envision] what HE will say [to speak, declare, converse, command] unto me, and what I shall answer [response] when I am reproved[rebuke, correction, reproof].
Followers are quite familiar with Matt.24, Mark 13, and Luke21: Immanuel-Christ-Jesus has told us everything. Fake-Followers and Fake-Leaders have join forces with the wicked - Principalities = Economics, Politics, and Religion. The first response when receiving a strong odor of feces - is to look at where we are standing.
Matt.12:25 "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation[Satan]; and every city or house divided against itself, shall not stand."
Mar.3:26 "And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he can not stand, but has an end [fire]."
The Principalities, Powers, Rulers of darkness, and Spiritual wickedness[Satan and Children] have convinced many that they have two choices only: both choices are controlled Satan/Tares/Generation of Vipers. We must not play with Snakes: we also must identify Vials released by our LORD - and stay out of the way.
Gospel stand - 1Cor.15:1. Watch ye - 1Cor.16:13. By Faith we stand - 2Cor.1:24.
