Nahum: Where Is God’s Justice? (10 of 17)
Series: The Unknown Prophets
How to interpret Nahum today:
Nineveh and Israel are symbols for Nineveh and Israel.
Nahum gives the hope and encouragement that:
God has great power.
God will judge the wicked.
God will bless those who stay faithful.
How it applies to us today:
Psalm 73, 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10, 1 Chronicles 6:31-39, 15:16-19, 16:1-7, 37-38, 25:1-2,
2 Chronicles 29:30, Nehemiah 11:17-22
I have to change the all about me and all about now attitude.
Focusing on others will depress us.
Psalm 73: 2-12
Focusing on self will disappoint us.
Psalm 73: 13-14
Focusing on God will:
give us an eternal perspective.
Psalm 73: 16-20
show us who we really are.
Psalm 73: 21-22
show us who he really is.
Psalm 73: 23-24
show us what we really have.
Psalm 73: 25-28
