GOD IS JEALOUS, and the Lord revengeth; THE LORD REVENGETH, AND IS FURIOUS; the Lord will take vengeance ON HIS ADVERSARIES, AND He reserveth WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES. The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath His way in the WHIRLWIND and in the STORM, and the CLOUDS are the dust of His feet. HE REBUKETH THE SEA, AND maketh it dry, and drieth up all the RIVERS: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. THE MOUNTAINS QUAKE at Him, AND the hills MELT, AND the earth is BURNED at His presence, yea, the world, AND ALL (THE WICKED SINNERS) that dwell therein. Who can stand before His indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of His anger? HIS FURY IS POURED OUT LIKE FIRE, AND THE ROCKS ARE THROWN DOWN BY HIM. (Now the GOoD news to all those who belong to Him, who are the Called Followers of Christ), THE LORD IS GOOD, A STRONG HOLD IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE (for the wicked); AND HE KNOWETH THEM THAT TRUST IN HIM. (Now back to the wicked and their day of troubles). But with an overrunning flood He will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue His enemies. What do ye (wicked) imagine against the Lord? He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time. (Once was enough). For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, THEY SHALL BE DEVOURED AS STUBBLE FULLY DRY (for the Furnace). Nahum 1:2-10. This is an illustration of the Lord's anger against those vile wretched sinners who will not heed His Words. And yet, in the midst of all this death and destruction is one little sentence about His ABSOLUTE Keeping Power of all His sheep, of all those who belong to Christ. Have NO FEAR about your future, IF YOU BELONG TO CHRIST. But, if you don't Belong to Christ and choose to continually fight His Wooing you to Him, BE VERY AFRAID, YOUR DEATH AND ETERNAL DESTRUCTION IS COMING. Say yes to Christ, and, Be Blessed.
