The "Standing with the Bagwells" Page continues each morning with a bit of personal news, often including a prayer request.

And don't forget that the "Site Map" can point you to any one of dozens of Bible Expositions here on the Website.

Let's study God's Word together! Each day here you will find a new, freshly written Lesson.

TODAY'S NEW bible lesson ...

Deb and me after a recent Revival Service in north Georgia

 

 

 

We are currently surveying the entire Old Testament, one Book at a time. Today it's the Book of Nahum. You can read all these Lessons, being archived daily, by "clicking" HERE. Those that have been written thus far, I mean. Enjoy!

There are twelve little Books at the end of the Old Testament, most often called the "Minor Prophets." One of these is "Nahum." With only 3 chapters, 47 verses in all, the Book can be read in just 7 or 8 minutes!

Nahum's name means "comfort!" See the word in "Capernaum," for example, one of the cities where Jesus lived.

"Consolation," Nahum the Prophet! Yet He preaches judgment to the Gentiles. But that alone might be comfort to the Jews!

I've often said that Nahum was authorized to preach the Sermon Jonah wanted to bring! That Jonah was first commissioned to proclaim, in fact! But Nineveh experienced a measure of Revival in Jonah's day. And God spared that Nation, Assyria, for another 150 years or so!

God's "timing" is perfect.

Nahum's message of doom, precise and written years prior to the events occurring historically, is another proof of the accuracy of the Word of God. The Bible contains prophecy as well as doctrine!

No one believed Nahum, Nineveh being at that time the most powerful City on earth. Assyria the greatest nation too. With defensive walls 100 feet high and extremely wide as well ... the City could withstand (it was said) a 20 year siege. But it "fell," just like Nahum predicted, in one night!

Yes, in the year 612 BC Babylon overran Assyria ... and Nineveh the indestructible has never been rebuilt!

Here's a good sample of Nahum's preaching, maybe his "key" verse: "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him."

Amen!
