Word: Nahum

with 2 comments

I laughed at the graphic above, put together by Jim LePage, mostly because i’m terrible.
Nahum was an OT guy who rocked up about 100yrs after Jonah (of fish-food fame), and like Jonah, Nahum was concerned with people who called Nineveh home. His book in the bible warns about some heavy gear that’s gonna be dished out to rebels by God. The epic thing about Nahum is that he goes beyond the typical ‘warning with the goal of repentance’ to ‘a promise of judgment for rebels’: “I am against you, declares the Lord.Nahum 2:13.

This morning I had the pleasure listening to a wise old man preach at our church on God’s love. It was a cracker. This wise old guy spoke from 1 John 4 – you can listen to it here.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.1 John 4:9-10

God’s love and mercy, righteousness and judgment go hand-in-hand.
