Thank you for returning this afternoon, my friends.
If you remember, Jonah prophesied to Nineveh about 100/150 years earlier. It is interesting to compare Jonah's prophesy with Nahum's. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Jonah is really a book about God’s mercy. It is one of the few times in the Old Testament that God offers a nation, other than Israel, opportunity to repent. It shows that God is interested in the hearts of all people, everywhere. Jonah failed to recognize God’s goodness and mercy. First he flees from God’s call and last he pouts and complains about God’s mercy. God is good in spite of our misunderstanding.
[See the Book of Jonah, posting from June 2-4, 2020 in the 'Biblical-World View Room', here at my house in and with Jesus. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
But, was the 'repentance' and 'reprieve', permanent?
Nahum is dated – 650 BC, written by the prophet of God – Nahum. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
In a 'nutshell' – Like Jonah, Nahum also prophesies against Ninevah. This time God is fed up with their sin and will bring destruction. Ninevah was the capital of Assyria and was viewed as a great and powerful nation. But no one can stand up to the judgment of God. God made good on his word and destroyed them.
Nahum was a Jewish prophet whose name means 'consolation' or 'comforter'. He had a grave and weighty message from Jehovah concerning the evil city of Nineveh. Nineveh was an ancient Assyrian city of Upper Mesopotamia, located on the outskirts of Mosul in modern-day northern Iraq. It is located on the eastern bank of the Tigris River, and was the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. Today it is a common name for the half of Mosul..audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Nahum's burden was to pronounce a severe sentence on 'Assyria'. The Assyrian Empire, was a Mesopotamian kingdom and empire of the ancient Near East and the Levant that existed as a state from perhaps as early as the 25th century BC until its collapse between 612 BC and 609 BC - spanning the periods of the Early to Middle Bronze Age. It was 'brutal' to those over which it reigned.
The Hebrew name “Nahum” means “comfort” or “consolation.” The theme of the prophecy is the fate and destruction of Nineveh, the one-time capital city of the mighty Assyrian empire, which had destroyed Israel and taken many inhabitants of the land captive (722 B.C.) There would be 'comfort' for those who would be 'delivered' from such an evil empire. But, 'woe' to Assyria!
Now the stage is set. Thank you for returning on Wednesday, Friday, June 3-5, 2020 for the three chapters of the Book of Nahum. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html And please remember that just because a 'book' is 'short in chapters', or, a 'small scroll', its significance cannot be under-estimated. Sometimes the LORD only speaks with a 'few words'; at other times He may give an extensive 'list' of the sins and evils provoking His judgment, if there is no repentance. From 'Jonah', the 'Assyrians' 'knew of judment' and 'repentance' required to avoid it from the Living God. He is GOD. And, it is HIS WORD! So, they had no excuses.
16 'All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.' [2 Timothy 3:16-17].
Additionally, we learn from Romans 15:4 'For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.'
And finally, we are carefully admonished by the Apostle Paul, from 1 Corinthians 10:1-10, listing what happened in the past to the children of Israel after they had departed from Egypt, but grumbled and complained, finally dying in the 'wilderness', but their children proceeding on into the 'Promised Land' under Joshua.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Therefore, as with 'Assyria', the 'children of the 'Exodus', so with us, for 'we are put on notice', and 'have no excuse' before the Almighty God, should we choose not to repent at any time, as we learn:
11 'Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.' [1 Corinthians 10:11-12]
[Please carefully study also Romans 1-2, for we have no excuse for 'failing', since Jesus has set us who believe in Him, FREE! John 8:32-36; Romans 8:1-4 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
Is He calling you, today? Will you 'come'? [Matthew 17:5; John 5:39; 14:6; 1 John 2:3-6]Amen. Amen.
As we go through these series, in the Books of the Bible, let us offer a simple prayer: “Speak Lord. My Bible is open. Your servant is listening.” He promises, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”. Amen. Amen.
(Matthew 11:28; John 10:27; Romans 10:13; Revelation 3:20). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
