vengeance on his adversaries...His wrath is
poured out like fire... 2. THIS MAKES US

must all appear before the judgment seat of
Christ..."

SOME FATHERLY TRAITS a) 13,7 ...slow to
anger..good..a stronghold... 2. JESUS ENHANCED
THIS FATHER PICTURE a) Jno.147-11
..if...seen Me...seen the Father.. 3. CF. HOW
MUCH THE "FATHER" LOVED b) Jno.316f For God
so loved...gave...

NAHUM ALSO REVEALS THE "WRATH" SIDE OF GOD! 1.
NAHUM EMPHASIZED GOD'S BAD SIDE a) A "holy" God
MUST deal with SIN! b) 12,6 God is
jealous...vengeful... c) Remember The Flood,
Sodom, etc. 2. JONAH EMPHASIZED GOD'S GOOD
SIDE a) Jon.42 ..gracious..merciful..slow to
anger ...kind... 3. PAUL RECOGNIZED BOTH
SIDES a) Rom.1122 Behold...goodness...severity
...

N.T. DOESN'T HIDE "WRATH" OF GOD! 1. JESUS SPOKE
FRANKLY OF HELL a) Mat.1340-43 ..cast them
into the furnace of fire..wailing..gnashing of
teeth... b) Mk.944,48 ..worm does not
die..fire is not quenched...
10
2. PAUL ALSO WARNED OF HELL a) 2 Thess 17-9
..and to give you who are troubled rest with us
when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with
His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking
vengeance on those who do not know God, and on
those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord
Jesus Christ. 9 These shall be punished with
everlasting destruction from the presence of the
Lord and from the glory of His power...
11
WE SHOULD LEARN FROM NAHUM'S "WORDPICTURES" OF
GOD!!!
12
IN VIEW OF THE WRATH OF GOD WE "FLY" TO
JESUS!!! 1. JESUS CAN SAVE US! a) Acts 412
..neither is there salvation in any
other... b) Mat.1128ff Come unto Me all you
who labor...heavy laden...give you rest..." 2.
DIVINE JUSTICE SATISFIED IN JESUS a) 1Jno.21f
...we know we have an advocate...He is the
propitiation for our sins...
13
GOD'S MESSAGE TO US TODAY IS MORE LIKE JONAH'S
THAN NAHUMS!!! 1. THERE IS STILL "YET 40 DAYS"
FOR US! 2. BUTWE MUST MEET "CONDITIONS" a)
Lk.133 ..except you repent...perish... 3.
NAHUM SHOWS GRACE CAN EXPIRE! a) 37 ..wasted
is Ninevah... b) Heb.64-6 ...impossible to
renew... 4. IN VIEW OF THE WRATH OF GOD WE FLY
TO JESUS!!!
14
BE WARNED GOD IS BOTH GOOD AND SEVERE! 1. YOU
HAVE OFFENDED HIM BY SIN! a) Rom.323 All have
sinned... 2. GOD HAS OFFERED PARDON CONDITIONALL
Y! a) Mk.1615f Acts 238 b) Acts 832
1Jno.19

THE "LOVE" OF GOD IS REAL BUT THE "WRATH" OF
GOD IS ALSO REAL!!! THUS HEAVEN IS A "REAL"
PLACE BUT HELL IS REAL ALSO... AND THE LORD HAS
SAID "YOU CHOOSE WHERE YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR
ETERNITY!!!"
