Thank you for returning my friends as you continue let me 'share my heart', hopefully encouraging you.
'Nahum' is a message of condemnation for those who disobey God and a message of consolation for those who trust and obey Him.
Ninevah exalted herself but she was humbled by God. This is what I call the Pharisee and Publican principle. [Luke 18:9-15] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
In the parable of the Pharisee and the tax gatherer, the Pharisee compared himself to the tax gatherer and exalted himself before God. The tax gatherer was humble and asked for mercy. Jesus said it was the tax gatherer who went away justified. God 'hates' 'pride'! If you exalt yourself, God will humble you.
[See such as 2 Samuel 22:28; Psalm 18:27; 22:29; 31:23; 94:2; 119:21; 138:6; Proverbs 3:34; 6:17; 8:13; 15:25; Isaiah 2:12; 10:12; 23:9; Jeremiah 13:9; 50:31; Ezekiel 7:24; Daniel 4:37; Amos 6:8; Zechariah 9:6; Luke 1:51; 1 Peter 5:5; James 4:6] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Assyria compromised her values to gain wealth and power, so God took her down. That is something we struggle with today. Has there been any opportunity lately to do something that was not quite right, but would have helped “close a deal“ or "advance your career" or "make more money", etc? A time to confess and repent. There is NO OTHER RELIEF.
We have to realize that the 'little foxes spoil the vine'. [Song of Solomon 2:15 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html ]
It is always a good day, when we take the time to confess and repent. There is NO OTHER RELIEF.
Fifth, How do we apply understanding Nahum today, in our own lives?
God’s justice is always right and always sure. Should He choose to grant mercy for a time, that good gift will not compromise the Lord’s ultimate sense of justice for all in the end.
No doubt we all have felt overwhelmed by the darkness both within ourselves and in our world. Nahum lived in a dark time, a time in which the faithful few must have wondered how long they would have to resist cultural and spiritual compromise. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
[Like Noah, Genesis 5-9; like Lot, Genesis 11-14; 19; like we are living in 'perilous times', time of evil morality, harsh nations and dangerous people. [Matthew 8:28; Romans 7-8; 2 Timothy 3:1].
Examine yourself. [2 Corinthians 13:5]. Have you ever found your will to do what’s right weakening as you became discouraged with what you saw in your life and in the world around you? Are you trying to be 'a friend of the world'? [James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-16] You cannot 'serve' two masters. [Matthew 6:34; Luke 6:13]
That is why we are warned in Revelation 18:4 King James Version (KJV) 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
The prophet Nahum reminds us of God’s active hand, working even in the darkest of times to bring justice and hope throughout the world. Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” [John 16:33]
Therefore, we are duly encouraged and instructed, in Ephesian 6:10-18 to wit:
10 'Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;'
Further we learn from Philippians 4:4-9, to wit: audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
4 'Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.'
In conclusion, Sixth, We, who are 'in Christ' have no reasons to fear. We are 'ambassadors for Christ', on His work assignments, pointing people to Him, giving them hope, as long as we are here. We must 'work while there is still light, for when the darkness comes, we will not have the opportunity'.
If you have come to Him, by the Grace of God's call, through 'faith', [John 3:15-16;6:44; Romans 10:13; Acts 2:20-21; Ephesians 2:8-9; 3:12] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html then:
Are you about what He has assigned y0u to be about, each day, just where you are?
If s0, He will protect you. and He will one day say, 'Well done thy good and faithful servant'.
[Matthew 25:21-23; 2 Corinthians 5:20; Ephesians 6:20; John 9:4;12:35-36; 1 Peter 3:15-16] Amen. Amen.
As the Lord wills, the week of June 15-17-19, 2020, we will post the introduction and three chapters of the Book of - Habakkuk. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Thank you for returning to study the Word of God with me and Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Amen.
