Revelation or Habakkuk?

My Christian roots are among those who reach instinctually reach for the book of Revelation whenever anything happens in the Middle East. A much more relevant book of the Bible, it seems to me, are the minor prophets like Habbakuk.

"Woe to him who stores up what is not his: how long can it last! he loads himself down with debts. Shall not your creditors rise suddenly? Shall not they who make you tremble awake? You shall become their spoil!" (Habakkuk 2: 5-7)
