Nahum describes the fall of Nineveh.
- Against Sinners – Twice God says he is against Nineveh (2:13, 3:5). In truth, God is against all people because of their sin (Romans 1:18). But in Christ there is no longer any condemnation for us; in Christ God is no longer against us, but for us (Romans 8:1, 31). Praise the Lord!
- Trust – Nineveh plundered the nations and was full of wealth, but their wealth was about to be plundered (2:9). They trusted in the security of their city, but like Thebes (3:8-10), their city too would fail. What are you living for? What are you trusting in?
