VII. EXPLICATION:

A. Author: uncertain. Probably Nahum. Nahum means "compassionate" or "full of comfort"

This book is regarded by some scholars as a sequel to Jonah. It would appear that the Assyrians, after their repentance at the preaching of Jonah, soon relapsed into gross idolatry. They plundered other nations, and their capital became like a lions' den full of prey, Nahum 2:11-12.—Thompson Chain - Bible Book Outlines

B. Date written: a sequel to Jonah. 664 to 612 B.C.

C. Purpose: To pronounce divine vengeance upon the bloody city and to console Judah with promises of future deliverance,—Nahum 3:1; 1:13-15—Thompson Chain - Bible Book Outlines

D. To whom written: GOD's people in Judah and Nineveh's inhabitants

E. Main Theme: destruction of Nineveh

F. Key word: Judgement

G. Key verse: Nahum 1:7-9 (Amplified Bible)

1:7 The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows (recognizes, has knowledge of, and understands) those who take refuge and trust in Him.

1:8 But with an overrunning flood He will make a full end of [Nineveh’s very] site and pursue His enemies into darkness.

1:9 What do you devise and [how mad is your attempt to] plot against the Lord? He will make a full end [of Nineveh]; affliction [which My people shall suffer from Assyria] shall not rise up the second time.

1. The LORD is Good.

1 Chronicles 16:34 (Amplified Bible)

16:34 O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!

Psalms 25:8 (Amplified Bible)

25:8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore will He instruct sinners in [His] way.

Romans 11:22 (Amplified Bible)

11:22 Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s gracious kindness to you—provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away).

2. Our Stronghold and Strength

In the midst of battle or war, you can't have both, because if you have stronghold, the people inside it are getting weaker because of lack of food and water. The LORD as a Stronghold is totally and infinitely different, because while the LORD surrounds us like a Stronghold, He also strengthens us by Himself so we're getting stronger and stronger inside the LORD.

Psalms 27:5 (Amplified Bible)

27:5 For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock.

Psalms 91:1-2 (Amplified Bible)

91:1 HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

91:2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

The LORD will guard us by keeping us in constant and perfect peace because He is the Prince of Peace. The world will fake this peace by buying sleeping pills, or drugs injection but they don't have peace, this fake peace will kill them.

Isaiah 26:1-4 (Amplified Bible)

26:1 IN THAT day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: e have a strong city; [the Lord] sets up salvation as walls and bulwarks.
