The Minor Prophets
Nahum: The Wrath of God
The book of Nahum comes some one hundred years after the prophecy of Jonah.
It’s obvious that God has intended these messages to be heard by His people. God is consoling His people.
God is delaying sentencing, so that man will have a chance.
Life will always have its troubles and struggles, but circumstances don’t define our life.
It is certainly true that God loves the sinner but hates his sin, as we sometimes say. But that is only part of the story.
You cannot just preach the God of wrath without the God of love, but the wrath of God grows out of his love, is a manifestation of his love.
