God judges the world by identifying and condemning sin and by vindicating and rewarding the righteous. God exercises temporal judgment on the world and on his people; final judgment will take place when Jesus Christ returns.

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.
Psalms - Songs from the Heart
In Psalm 7, David responds to accusations in surprising ways. Yet, when we look deeper, we see that his response is so much more fruitful than the responses of our contemporaries. In our world, where words are becoming terribly powerful, as they were in the ancient world, we must, like David, find a way to deal with accusations. Join us as we explore David's holy response, and how it draws us closer to God.
Romans 12 - Foundations of the Christian Life
The desire for revenge is a common human experience. But revenge doesn't bring peace. We only find peace when we overcome our own bitterness. And we only truly overcome bitterness when we, firstly, trust God's justice and when we, secondly, show evidence that we've emulated God's forgiveness. Then we overcome evil with good. As usual, this recording starts with our testimonies. The sermon starts at 9:30. After this short sermon we broke into two groups to study the passage more carefully.

Todos deben considerarnos servidores de Cristo y administradores de los misterios de Dios. Ahora bien, de los administradores se espera que demuestren ser dignos de confianza. Por mi parte, no me preocupa mucho ser juzgado por ustedes o por algún tribunal humano; es más, ni siquiera yo mismo me juzgo.…

Nahum 2-3 continues the declaration of God's vengeance against Nineveh because of his unconditional love to Israel. In that sense, Nahum is a love letter to God's people. As we consider the historical and prophetic parallels found in Nahum - we learn that God has magnificent love, wisdom, power, and justice. The story of Nineveh should encourage us that our God is the only one who can meet our needs. All other love, wisdom, power, and justice pale in comparison to the magnificence of God displayed in Nahum 2-3.
In Psalm 82, God holds an assembly; proclaiming judgment on those present for their wicked ways and then reminds them of his expecations for how the weak should be treated. What the Lord communicates in this assembly is a reminder of his expecation for his covenant people.
