The Good News of God's Judgement
Passage: Nahum 1:9–2:2
Big Picture: In a series of six alternating oracles proclaiming the fall of Ninevah and the restoration of Judah, Nahum shows how God’s judgement and salvation are inextricably tied.
Each judgement-salvation pairing reveals a slightly different aspect of God’s glory in salvation through judgement…
Pairing One (1:9-13): God consumes the wicked … and frees his people
Pairing Two (1:14-15): God humbles the proud to the grave… and calls his people to respond in worship.
Pairing Three: (2:1-2) God scatters his enemies… but gathers and glorifies his people.
God alone acts....we behold!
