Nahum's name means consolation. He prophecied against Nineveh about 125 years after Jonah had brought the message of repentance to Asyria. The repentance of Nineveh did not last. By this time (about 650BC) they had become the world leaders in cruelty and ruthlessness. They were notorious for their atrocities, such as skinning their enemies alive. It is very easy to skip the application of this book to our land in our time. It can be applied to America today. The call to repentance is a call to real and lasting repentance.
Nahum 1:1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the
NAHUM'S LITTLE BOOK IS SELDOM GIVEN MUCH CONSIDERATION. IT IS A PROPHESY AGAINST NINEVEH. MAYBE IT IS TIME TO TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT THIS LITTLE BOOK. NINEVEH IS THE CAPITOL OF BABYLON. REMEMBER, IN SCRIPTURE, BABYLON MEANS TYRANNY AND CONFUSION. SUPPOSE THAT THE PRESENT CAPITOL OF TYRANNY AND CONFUSION IS AMERICA. WHAT COUNTRY NOW IS LEADING THE WAY TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER OF TYRANNY AND CONFUSION TO BE HEADED BY THE ANTICHRIST?
Nahum 1:2-3 God [is] jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD
revengeth, and [is] furious; the LORD will take vengeance
on his adversaries, and he reserveth [wrath] for his
The LORD [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will
not at all acquit [the wicked]: the LORD hath his way in
the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the
dust of his feet.
NAHUM SAYS IT THRICE - THE LORD REVENGES. THE LORD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD. THE LORD WILL TAKE FINAL VENGEANCE. DO YOU SUPPOSE THE LORD IS FURIOUS REGARDING THE NATIONAL SINS OF AMERICA? JUST BECAUSE THE LORD IS SO VERY MUCH SLOWER TO ANGER THAN WE ARE, WE CANNOT THINK HIS PATIENCE MEANS THERE WILL NOT BE JUDGMENT.
Nahum 1:7 The LORD [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them that trust in him.
WHEN GOD'S JUDGMENT FALLS ONLY GOD CAN PROVIDE REFUGE. WHATEVER ELSE YOU TRUST WILL DO YOU NO GOOD IN JUDGMENT.
Nahum 1:9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter
end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
ARE YOU AGAINST GOD IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE OR THOUGHTS?
Nahum 1:11 There is [one] come out of thee, that imagineth evil
against the LORD, a wicked counsellor.
IN RECENT HISTORY WE SAW A MAN NAMED HITLER WHO FIT THIS DESCRIPTION. THE WORLD STAGE NOW IS SET FOR THE ANTICHRIST. HIS NEW WORLD ORDER IS MUCH MORE SEVERE THAN HITLER'S. KNOW FOR SURE THAT WORLD GOVERNMENT BEFORE THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST WILL BE HEADED BY SATAN, THE ANTICHRIST, AND HIS FALSE PROPHET.
Nahum 3:4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the
wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that
selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families
through her witchcrafts.
WHO IS IT THAT NAHUM IS TALKING ABOUT HERE? TODAY HE COULD VERY WELL SPEAKING TO AMERICA. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE DO NOT LOVE OUR COUNTRY. WE ARE GRIEVING OVER WHAT IT HAS BECOME. THE WELLFAVOURED HARLOT, THE RICHEST NATION IN THE WORLD, FOUNDED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD WHICH NOW HOLDS THE BANNER OF ANTICHRIST HIGHER THAN RUSSIA. THE MISTRESS OF WITCHCRAFTS, LEADING THE WORLD IN WIVES REBELLING AGAINST THE GOD GIVEN AUTHORITY OF THEIR HUSBANDS. LEADING THE WORLD IN THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT. LEADING THE WORLD IN THE EXULTATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY. LEADING THE WORLD IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF ANTICHRIST. LEADING THE WORLD ON THE PATH TO JUDGMENT AND DESTRUCTION. SELLING NATIONS THROUGH HER WHOREDOMS AND FAMILIES THROUGH HER WITCHCRAFTS. WITCHCRAFT IS THE ATTEMPT TO CONTROL OTHERS BY ANY MEANS OTHER THAN DIRECT CONFRONTATION. NAHUM'S WORDS ARE PROBABLY AS APPLICABLE TO AMERICA TODAY AS THEY WERE FOR NINEVEH WHEN HE WROTE THEM. AMERICA IS LEADING THE WORLD IN BROKEN HOMES, IN WITCHCRAFT, AND THE MURDER OF UNBORN BABIES.
Nahum 3:19 [There is] no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is
grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the
hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness
IF NAHUM IS SPEAKING OF AMERICA TODAY, THEN THERE IS NO ESCAPE OF TOTAL DESTRUCTION. HOW COULD THIS BE? THE "BREAK-UP" OF THE SOVIET UNION IS A MYTH. IS RUSSIA PAYING MONEY TO AMERICA OR IS AMERICA PAYING MONEY TO RUSSIA? HAS A SINGLE first line STRATEGIC NUCLEAR WEAPON OF RUSSIA BEEN DISMANTLED? BEFORE THE "BREAK-UP" THERE WAS ONLY ONE FINGER ON THE BUTTON. HOW MANY FINGERS AND WHOSE FINGERS ARE NOW ON RUSSIA'S STRATEGIC NUCLEAR WEAPONS? RUSSIA HAS BEEN PREPARING FOR STRATEGIC NUCLEAR WAR FOR OVER 40 YEARS. RUSSIA IS DESPERATE. WHEN SHE GETS DESPERATE ENOUGH, AMERICA GOES UP IN SMOKE. THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN STRATEGIC NUCLEAR WARFARE.
NOW HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS - II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
EVEN IF THE LAND OF AMERICA IS NOT HEALED - EVEN IF IT IS DESTROYED BY STRATEGIC NUCLEAR WEAPONS - FOR THE CHRISTIAN THERE IS NOT ONE IOTA OF DIFFERENCE IN WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM WHEN THE NUCLEAR STRIKE OCCURS OR WHEN THE RAPTURE OCCURS. FOR THE CHRISTIAN WHO IS IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD THE EFFECT OF EITHER IS IDENTICAL - INSTANTLY WITH THE LORD. THE SERIOUS QUESTION - ARE YOU READY? WE MUST GET SERIOUS, AND STAY READY. BE SURE NOT TO STOP HERE WITH SUCH SOBERING THOUGHTS. CHECK THE CONCLUSIONS GIVEN IN THE NEXT SHORT LITTLE BOOK OF HABAKKUK.
