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.
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.

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.

PRESENTATION: Forgiveness is Essential for the Christian So often, when Our Lord speaks in parables, he’s attempting to hide his meaning from his audience. When speaking a difficult truth, it’s often easier to let people come to it slowly on their own rather than push it down their throats. This time…

God's Wrath is often looked upon negatively by Christians and unbelievers. Unbelievers scoff at the justice of God and Christians down play the signifigance. Yet, God is ultimately both righteous and just. The signifigance of our God and the signifigance of the cross are bound up in the righteousness and justice of God.

Tell the Story Learning from the Story 1) We see the purpose of God’s judgement and wrath . It is common to think of God in human terms when reading stories like this God hears Sodom and Gomorrah have been doing really bad stuff. He has already told them multiple time and given the warnings. His fuse…
Deus vult! God wills it! This was the battle cry of the people when Pope Urban II declared the First Crusade. But was it God’s will? Many times in history, sinful men have claimed to be following the will of God, when in truth they were motivated by greed and power. This is the will of man. In the Lord’s…

Jonah 3 is unique in the Old Testament. We observe the disobedient Prophet Jonah receiving the Word of Yahweh a second time; and this time acting on it. (v. 1-2) This calling is unique because he is called to to warn of judgement to a Gentile nation and town. It is also unique because the citizens and king of the Pagan town immediately repents of their evil and violence and calls upon God. (v. 5-9) God in turn, responds by mercifully relenting of His Judgement. (v. 10) In this chapter, there is much that can be learned about the call to proclaim the Word and the call to receive the Word. We as NT believers likewise are both commanded to proclaim a message of the Gospel and to receive the message of the Gospel.

1 What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? 2 Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God. 3 What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? 4 Not at all! Let God be true, and…

Major Lessons from the Minor Prophets

Somtimes bad things happen and we wonder where God is in all of the misery. There are times when we just can't see God in all of it and we wonder why? Habakkuk had the same question that many of us face all the time, and when we finally understand, it deepens our worship experience.
