Nahum is a prophetic book promising the freedom of Israel from Assyrian rule and the total destruction of Nineveh. In the first chapter, Nahum describes God as working in two important ways. The book begins with a repeated description of God as zealous and vengeful. The author emphasizes God's power over water, land, and people (1:4-5). Nahum then questions the wisdom of rebelling against God. (1:6, 9) The entire section culminates in the prophetic promise of the total destruction of the city of Nineveh. (1:12-14) Though the main focus is God's vengeance against Nineveh; it also emphasizes that God is slow to anger (v. 3), a refuge to his people (v. 7), and Good (v. 7). As whole, Nahum defends God's justice emphasizing his goodness and patience along with his demand for vengeance.
What do we do as believers when things happen in our life, things outside of our control, and we look at those things and we say, “God, this doesn’t make any sense”? How do we respond? Or maybe we say it this way, “God, I sure would have done things differently if it were up to me.” (Side note- aren’t…

By Pastor Glenn Pease Most speeches and sermons have three parts to them. There is the introduction, the body, and the conclusion. Often they have three points in the body as well.

Jesus was our propitiation to appease the wrath of God. But, He was also our expiation to make amends for our wrong doing and remove our guilt. He was the atoning sacrifice.

The Attributes of God
Kyle Linville • Sermon • • 60 views
The Justice of God God’s righteousness is his perfect absolute justice in and toward himself, his prevention of any violation of the justice of his character, and his revelation of himself in acts of justice. Both the Old Testament Hebrew term ( tsedeqah ) and the New Testament Greek term ( dikaiosynē…
When life gets hard and our expectations of God go unmet, we can begin to lose confidence in the reliability and justice of God. This was true in Malachi’s day and our text delivers a clear answer to the skepticism of his audience. His answer ought to buttress our hope as well. In the heart of our text is the principle upon which we ground our hope that God will keep every promise he has made—“I the LORD do not change” (3:6).

The just shall live by faith. Jesus has fulfilled the law of Moses. Those who trust that He died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and has been raised are justified by believing, by trusting Him. We cannot do enough good things to earn a place in God's perfect Kingdom. We must have His righteousness given to us as a gift in order to enter. In the Kingdom, we are no longer bound to Moses law. We recognize that all the law is fulfilled in this, Loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourself. Jesus is our redeemer, saviour. He is both just and the justifier of all those who come to God through Him. There is no other mediator between God and man. Just Jesus. Please trust in Jesus. He is the only hope for our World. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, June 2, 2019.

The way of Jesus, of His Kingdom, sets us free from the tyrrany of personal vendetta. We are free to forgive and love and help people who hurt us, who wound our pride, and who persecute us, who anger us. We are free to give away what we have knowing that God, who owns everything, is able to provide and protect and repay so that there will always be, in the end, justice, though we may see much injustice around us. God knows. Remember, while being hurt, Jesus neither fought back, nor ran away, rather he absorbed the hurt and forgave those responsible. The Spirit of Jesus is within all those who follow Him, trusting Him, those who've been born from above. LORD, help us to be different than we are. Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Introduction As we open to Nahum chapter three, we are going to close out the book with this final chapter. We turn from the fact of the judgment to the reasons for it. More precisely to the justification of it. God in declaring judgment against Nineveh (and Assyria) is just. God is just in declaring…

“Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3. The Spirit of God can do that which is impossible for man. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:4, 5.
