Nahum
  • This is a message about Nineveh, the account of
    a vision seen by Nahum, who was from Elkosh.
    (Nahum 11) 612 BC Nineveh destroyed
  • One day the LORD spoke to JonahHe said, Go to
    Nineveh, that great city, and speak out against
    it I am aware of how wicked its people are.
    (Jonah 11-2) 783-743 BC

5
  • Jonah was furious. He lost his temper. He yelled
    at God, God! I knew itwhen I was back home, I
    knew this was going to happen! Thats why I ran
    off to Tarshish! I knew you were sheer grace and
    mercy, not easily angered, rich in love, and
    ready at the drop of a hat to turn your plans of
    punishment into a program of forgiveness! So,
    God, if you wont kill them, kill me! Im better
    off dead! (Jonah 41-3 The Message)

6
  • For God loved the world so much that he gave his
    only Son (John 316)
  • My heart cries out for Moab! (Isaiah 155)
  • The LORD says, People of Israel, I think as
    much of the people of Ethiopia as I do of you. I
    brought the Philistines from Crete and the
    Syrians from Kir, just as I brought you from
    Egypt. (Amos 97)
  • Turn to me now and be saved, people all over the
    world! (Isaiah 4522)
  • Roman officer I tell you, I have never found
    faith like this, not even in Israel! (Luke 79)
  • Canaanite woman You are a woman of great
    faith! (Matthew 1528)

7
  • Listen to me it is true that there were many
    widows in Israel during the time of Elijah, when
    there was no rain for three and a half years and
    a severe famine spread throughout the whole land.
    Yet Elijah was not sent to anyone in Israel, but
    only to a widow living in Zarephath in the
    territory of Sidon. And there were many people
    suffering from a dreaded skin disease who lived
    in Israel during the time of the prophet Elisha
    yet not one of them was healed, but only Naaman
    the Syrian. When the people in the synagogue
    heard this, they were filled with anger. They
    rose up, dragged Jesus out of town, and took him
    to the top of the hill on which their town was
    built. They meant to throw him over the cliff
    (Luke 425-29)

8
  • The LORD is good he protects his people in
    times of trouble he takes care of those who turn
    to him. Like a great rushing flood he completely
    destroys his enemies he sends to their death
    those who oppose him. (Nahum 17-8)
  • Nineveh was besieged, conquered, and sacked by
    the allied forces of Medes, Scythians,
    Babylonians, and Susianians. King Sin-shar-ishkun
    of Assyria was killed in the sack.

9
  • Nineveh, you are under attack! The power that
    will shatter you has come. Prepare the defenses!
    Guard the road! Prepare for battle!...The enemy
    soldiers carry red shields and wear uniforms of
    red. They are preparing to attack! Their chariots
    flash like fire! Their horses prance! Chariots
    dash wildly through the streets, rushing back and
    forth in the city squares. They flash like
    torches and dart about like lightning. The
    officers are summoned they stumble as they press
    forward. The attackers rush to the wall and set
    up the shield for the battering ram. (Nahum
    21-5)

10
  • I am your enemy! says the LORD Almighty. I
    will burn up your chariots. Your soldiers will be
    killed in war, and I will take away everything
    that you took from others. The demands of your
    envoys will no longer be heard. The LORD
    Almighty says, I will punish you, Nineveh! I
    will strip you naked and let the nations see you,
    see you in all your shame. (Nahum 213, 35)

11
  • Jonah started through the city, and after
    walking a whole day, he proclaimed, In forty
    days Nineveh will be destroyed! (Jonah 34)

12
Terminal Diagnosis
  • Emperor of Assyria, your governors are dead, and
    your noblemen are asleep forever! Your people are
    scattered on the mountains, and there is no one
    to bring them home again. (Nahum 318)
  • There is no remedy for your injuries, and your
    wounds cannot be healed. All those who hear the
    news of your destruction clap their hands for
    joy. Did anyone escape your endless cruelty?
    (Nahum 319)

13
  • Israel
  • I wanted to heal Israel, but its sins were far
    too great. Samaria is filled with liars, thieves,
    and bandits! (Hosea 71 NLT)

  • Judah
  • The LORD God of their ancestors repeatedly sent
    messages through his messengers because he wanted
    to spare his people and his dwelling place. But
    they mocked Gods messengers, despised his words,
    and made fun of his prophets until the LORD
    became angry with his people. He could no longer
    heal them (2 Chronicles 3615,16).
  • Is there no medicine in Gilead? Are there no
    doctors there? Why, then, have my people not been
    healed? (Jeremiah 822 GN).
  • The Lord says to his people, Your wounds are
    incurable, your injuries cannot be healed. There
    is no one to take care of you, no remedy for your
    sores, no hope of healing for you. (Jeremiah
    301213 GN).

16
  • Babylon
  • Babylon will suddenly fall and be shattered. Cry
    for it. Bring medicine for its pain. Maybe it can
    be healed. We wanted to heal Babylon, but it
    couldnt be healed. Lets abandon it and go to
    our own land. God has judged Babylon. Its
    judgment is complete. (Jeremiah 518,9)

17
  • Egypt
  • People of Egypt, go to Gilead and look for
    medicine! All your medicine has proved useless
    nothing can heal you. (Jeremiah 4612)

18
Jews
  • So the prophecy of Isaiah applies to them This
    people will listen and listen, but not
    understand they will look and look, but not see,
    because their minds are dull, and they have
    stopped up their ears and have closed their eyes.
    Otherwise, their eyes would see, their ears would
    hear, their minds would understand, and they
    would turn to me, says God, and I would heal
    them. (Matthew 1314-15)

19
Forgiveness
20
Forgiveness and Healing
21
  • She Mary will give birth to a son, and you are
    to give him the name Jesus, because he will save
    (sozo) his people from their sins. (Matthew
    121)
  • salvation, heal/healing, wholeness, restore,
    deliver, recover, unbroken.

22
  • The woman with a bleeding disorder for twelve
    years.
  • "No one could heal (therapeuo) her." (Luke 843)
    "therapeutic"
  • "In the presence of all the people, she told why
    she had touched him and how she had been
    instantly healed (iaomai)." (Luke 847) - to be
    cured of a physical illness
  • "Daughter, your faith has healed (sozo) you. Go
    in peace." (Luke 848) - Not merely medically
    treated. Transformation, wholeness, unbroken,
    spiritual healing.

23
  • For it is by God's grace that you have been
    saved (healed) through faith (trust). (Ephesians
    28)

24
  • In Luke 5 a paralytic man is lowered through the
    roof into Jesus' presence. Jesus does not say
    "Be healed," or "Get up and walk." Instead he
    points out the healing significance of salvation
    by saying "Friend, your sins are forgiven." (Luke
    520 NIV). Salvation is the healing of the sin
    damage. But the Pharisees are incensed, and ask
    "Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can
    forgive sins but God alone?" (Luke 521 NIV).
    True enough. Only God can forgive sins. But as
    Jesus wanted to point out, their view was one of
    the need for legal forgiveness in order to
    receive God's blessings. An exterior kind of
    work, a ritualized concept of salvation.

25
  • But Jesus points them back to what salvation
    really is by saying to them '"Why are you
    thinking these things in your hearts? Which is
    easier to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to
    say, 'Get up and walk'? But that you may know
    that the Son of Man has authority on earth to
    forgive sins...." He said to the paralyzed man,
    "I tell you, get up, take up your mat and go
    home."' (Luke 522-24 NIV). In the Pharisees'
    minds which was easier? To heal or to forgive
    sins? Obviously they could handle Jesus as "just
    another miracle worker who heals" but not as
    someone who went around forgiving sins.

26
  • They, the Pharisees, had developed a very
    meticulous set of rules and regulations for
    achieving forgiveness. Their idea of salvation
    was of strict observance to the ceremonies and
    rituals. So when someone comes around saying he
    is able to forgive sins, that "blows their
    minds". For salvation as healing is not part of
    their concept of how God works to restore people
    to himself. Salvation, they think, has to come
    "through the proper channels". There are rigid
    requirements to achieve this salvation, and
    which, if legalistically obeyed, will ensure
    success. So how can this "faith healer" promise
    forgiveness of sins? How?

27
  • Because he is God, and because his salvation is
    healing, not rigid observance of outward
    requirements. An inherently non-legal process.
    Blasphemy to those who saw the achieving of legal
    forgiveness as the essential part of salvation!
    Which is what led to Jesus' death. He "bucked the
    system", he "blasphemed God", and it was "better
    that one man die for the sake of the people" (see
    John 1149) than the whole national system of
    achieving salvation be destroyed.
  • Salvation as Healing, Jonathan Gallagher

28
Does forgiveness going to heaven
  • The LORD said to Moses, How much longer will
    these people reject me? How much longer will they
    refuse to trust in me, even though I have
    performed so many miracles among them? (Numbers
    1411 GN)
  • The Lord answered, I will forgive them, as you
    have asked. But I promise that as surely as I
    live and as surely as my presence fills the
    earth, none of these people will live to enter
    that land. They have seen the dazzling light of
    my presence and the miracles that I performed in
    Egypt and in the wilderness, but they have tried
    my patience over and over again and have refused
    to obey me. They will never enter the land which
    I promised to their ancestors. None of those who
    have rejected me will ever enter it (Numbers
    1420-23).

29
  • Jesus
  • Forgive them, Father! (Luke 2334 - GN).
  • When the captain there saw what happened, he
    honored God This man was innocent! A good man,
    and innocent! All who had come around as
    spectators to watch the show, when they saw what
    actually happened, were overcome with grief and
    headed home. (Luke 2347,48 The Message)

30
  • Do you have contempt for God, who is very kind
    to you, puts up with you, and deals patiently
    with you? Don't you realize that it is God's
    kindness that is trying to lead you to him and
    change the way you think and act? (Romans 24
    GW)

  • So the prophecy of Isaiah applies to them This
    people will listen and listen, but not
    understand they will look and look, but not see,
    because their minds are dull, and they have
    stopped up their ears and have closed their eyes.
    Otherwise, their eyes would see, their ears would
    hear, their minds would understand, and they
    would turn to me, says God, and I would heal
    them. (Matthew 1314-15)

33
  • And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the
    glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the
    same image from one degree of glory to another.
    (2 Corinthians 318 ESV)

34
  • We know that when Christ appears, we shall be
    like him, because we shall see him as he really
    is. (1 John 32)

35
  • Yes, may you come to know his love although it
    can never be fully known and so be completely
    filled with the very nature of God. (Ephesians
    319)

36
  • And now I give you a new commandment love one
    another. As I have loved you, so you must love
    one another. (John 1334)

37
The unpardonable sin
  • Then some people brought to Jesus a man who was
    blind and could not talk because he had a demon.
    Jesus healed the man, so that he was able to talk
    and see. The crowds were all amazed at what Jesus
    had done. Could he be the Son of David? they
    asked. When the Pharisees heard this, they
    replied, He drives out demons only because their
    ruler Beelzebul gives him power to do so.
    (Matthew 1222-24)

38
  • No, it is not Beelzebul, but God's Spirit, who
    gives me the power to drive out demons, which
    proves that the Kingdom of God has already come
    upon youI tell you people can be forgiven any
    sin and any evil thing they say but whoever says
    evil things against the Holy Spirit will not be
    forgiven. Anyone who says something against the
    Son of Man can be forgiven but whoever says
    something against the Holy Spirit will not be
    forgiven---now or ever. (Matthew 1228-32)

  • Look, the home of God is now among his people!
    He will live with them, and they will be his
    people. God himself will be with themOn each
    side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing
    twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each
    month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal
    the nationsThe throne of God and of the Lamb
    will be there, and his servants will worship him.
    And they will see his face, and his name
    (character) will be written on their foreheads.
    And there will be no night there and no need for
    lamps or sun for the Lord God will shine on
    them. (Revelation 213 222-5)

41
  • They couldn't take their eyes off them--Peter
    and John standing there so confident, so sure of
    themselves! Their fascination deepened when they
    realized these two were laymen with no training
    in Scripture or formal education. They recognized
    them as companions of Jesus (Acts 413 MSG)

42
  • It is growth in knowledge of the character of
    Christ that sanctifies the soul. To discern and
    appreciate the wonderful work of the atonement,
    transforms him who contemplates the plan of
    salvation. By beholding Christ, he becomes
    changed into the same image, from glory to glory,
    as by the Spirit of the Lord. The beholding of
    Jesus becomes an ennobling, refining process to
    the actual Christian. He sees the Pattern, and
    grows into its likeness, and then how easily are
    dissensions, emulations, and strife adjusted. The
    perfection of Christs character is the
    Christians inspiration. When we see him as he
    is, desire awakes to be like him, and this
    elevates the whole man... That I May Know Him
