Discussion for Nahum 1

    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 !

    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.
