Wesley's Notes for Nahum 1:1


1:1 The burden - When the prophets were sent to denounce judgments against a nation or city, the word was usually called the burden of that nation or city. The vision - As prophets were of old called seers, #1Sam 9:9|, so their prophesies were called visions. Nahum - His name speaks a comforter, but it is God's people to whom he gives notice of the destruction of their oppressors.

    This chapter talks og God,s mercies and wrath against sin. God will punish sin but willing and ready to accept the sinner at repentance. He is slow in anger but quick in love to forgive and the good thing is he warns His people. We need to heed His mercies and come to Him quickly. This message was also repeated in Isaiah.

    Great Book of God , notice how the many that practice total humbility today are in their second flesh which may be fallen , they may see all spiritual with a new powerful gift(s) and with their gray eyes but God can still humble his sight to them . Praise God and be careful !

  • Bowlander
    We live in a day when we can easily miss that an idol can be one of us. Many are lording over God's flock and are themselves enemies of God, yet they become famous and promote their own name and list great lists of their own accomplishments. We need to humble ourselves before God, for the Lamb himself is the one that treads the wine press of the wrath of God. Certainly He know those that are His.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    PARADOX. Our Everlovivg Abba Dad is always with us and for us in and through His Son our Blessed Lord and Majesty King to come Christ Yeshua Jesus Amen. No matter what lies ahead Gods Word the Word of Life will always prevail. Put the whole Word on and fight and do what He says to do. All Saints eyes will be open once again Glory to God Amen. Shalom.
