For Aleisha, in response to the question that you posed a few days ago, please refer to the information and diagram provided below and please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank You for the question on Habukuk 2:2.
FIRST: One of the most important things that I would want you to know is that when GOD speaks in the imperfect tense in Hebrew, He is leaving room for you to meet Him in the future!
Vision is a BIG word in Hebrew.
Chazah means to see or behold as GOD sees, which means you have to be able to operate in the anointing, aligning your vision with the vision/will of GOD. (Reference the 1st few times in scripture the Word chazah is used).
Reference EXODUS 18:21 “Moreover, you shall seek out of all the people, able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place[such] over them, [to be] rulers of thousands,[and] rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.”
Chazah is about operating in truth.
There is no way to seek out able men such as those that possess awe and reverence, and knowledge of the LORD without being submitted and committed to the anointing yourself and possessing a relationship with GOD.
Chazah is about operating in the Spirit of GOD, seeing Him...
Take a look at the 2nd time the word chazah is used in scripture.
Reference EXODUS 24:9-11 “Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: 10 And they saw the God of Israel: and [there was] under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in [his] clearness. 11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.”
Chazah is about following the Spirit of GOD
Let’s look at the 3rd and 4th time chazah is used in scripture; Exodus 24:4, Numbers 24:4, 16: Both times, we find that Baalam sees the vision of GOD.
Chazah is about being teachable, having a desire to be taught…
In the book of Job the pattern continues. In particular 8:17, 15:17, 19:26, 27, 23:9. Even as Elihu criticizes Job (34:32), he asks that GOD teach him, so that whatever it is that he can not see, God would reveal.
Chazah is Insight
Ask GOD for the mantle of vision. You need the ability to choose out those that have a heart for GOD, genuinely. You need to be mantled by GOD to seek out men and women of truth, those that deal in honesty and integrity, possessing the ability to operate in truth- at all times. Note that the very first-time GOD uses this word in scripture, the Holy Spirit is letting us know that Jethro is counseling Moses to seek out those that reverence the LORD and operate in truth.
Moses has to operate in the vision of GOD in order to achieve this.
Habukkuk is using the same word for vision (2:2). GOD has given Habukkuk the vision that he must follow and pursue with all his heart. But, not only that! Habukkuk is speaking into the generations to decree and declare the same exact impartation over you that will allow you to impart vision to others, and he is telling you how to do it!
Habukkuk is leaving you the opportunity to walk in the same anointing that resides in the word GOD gave to him. I see by the work that you are doing in the earth and the events that you put together in order to bless the children, His children, you are imparting that vision to others! Amen.
This was an excellent passage of scripture to speak over their lives. I come into an agreement with you that they will abide within the pages of scripture that GOD has placed on your heart to cover, guide and protect them with His Word, throughout the days of their lives.
Thank You for the question about this verse of scripture. I hope I have helped to increase understanding! Amen.
“for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7b
I pray that you all will be perpetually mantled with the vision of GOD.
