It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. ~ Harry S Truman

Ezekiel 36

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Luke 17

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

On the suspect of Who’s Who:

The identity of the prophet Habukkuk is a big mystery. Even the etymology of his name is speculative. Nonetheless, or rather on account of his anonymity, he’s famous for this message that was passed along by Paul:

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Speculative etymology, so the light-hearted should be able to connect the unknown prophet with this famous saying:

Habakkuk and a smile.

Coke adds


(It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.)

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

I’ll toss in that a main tradition about the identity of the prophet Habakkuk is that he was the boy [of the unnamed Shunamite woman] whom Elisha raised from the dead.

Peculiar details in that account. When he came to life, he sneezed seven times.

You bet the God of Abraham - being the God of the living - knows all of the modern lingo, euphemisms, idioms.. the whole bit.

Puns are a pure language, because they just are what they are, intended or not. Understood or not.
