The prophecy in Habakkuk 2:2-3 is unfulfilled). 

Two Predictions--Unfulfilled:

1. The vision (of the second coming of Christ, as proved in Heb. 10:37) is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie (Hab. 2:3) 

2. Though it tarry, wait for it (the second coming of Christ); it will not tarry

A very good question and I humbly submit for your consideration, it connects the dialogue of Habakkuk’s two prior complaints and clears the table so to speak for God’s nugget answer to the complaints. 

Written near the end of the seventh century B.C. Habakkuk was witnessing the decline and fall of the evil Assyrian empire and the rise of the even more wicked Babylonian empire.

Habakkuk was also observing that the leaders in Judah were oppressing the poor, and his complaint (question) to God was why does He allow the wicked to prosper?

(Habakkuk 2:2) And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.(Amplified Bible) (Proverbs 22:3)

Expressed in the vernacular of our times; Write My message so simply (that no special skills are needed) that even a passer by can read and understand (remember) it without having to stop. And possibly exposing themselves or putting their loved ones in danger to receive this priceless kingdom knowledge.(Deuteronomy 29:29; Proverbs 27:12)

(Habakkuk 2:3) Trust and have confidence in the Lord that He is doing what is right and lean not to your own understanding on the matters before us.(Isaiah 46:10)

(Habakkuk 2:4) The [uncompromising] righteous man or women shall live by their faith and in faithfulness without fear.(1 Corinthians 16:13)

As we witness the almost daily unfolding of Bible prophecies on our little sphere, there are many among us who are asking these very same questions, in fear.
Tell them the plan and all the answers are in God's Word, now be joyful and of good courage as we hold a promise, from He who is more than able to keep it.
(2 Corinthians 4:1) 

In the Lord’s freedom a happy sheepdog standing…….......warrior on
