The Book of Nahum gives you a glimpse into how God plans to deal with the evil we are currently experiencing. God doesn’t change, so the way he promised to handle Nineveh back in Nahum’s day is what we will probably see when he decides to avenge his people of the evil tyrants of our day. It won’t be a pretty picture. Their worship of Moloch and Baal by sacrificing children through sex trafficking and abortion will be what nails their coffin shut and sends them straight into the fire of hell. But there is good news! God is our stronghold; we are protected and will not see his wrath come upon us; even though we have all sinned and did nothing to deserve his grace, he will save us through our faith in Jesus. I do not pity anyone who hurts a child and look forward to the day I see God’s recompense. If you want to see what God has in store for our enemies, read the three short chapters of Nahum. It’s encouraging to know that God will not let them get away with their evil deeds.
The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him. But with an overflowing flood he will make a complete end of the adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness. Nahum 1:7-8
