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. The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. (Nahum 1:6-7 KJV)
Many have distorted images of God. They imagine God to be fierce and angry. The Bible says, The Lord is good, a STRONG HOLD in the day of TROUBLE; AND HE...(meaning YOU or ME) knows us that trust in HIM!
What we can take away this morning is this...The day of judgement will come...God's righteous anger over the wicked will be displayed as a judge on a THRONE who deals with the wicked and the dead. Maybe not how most of us picture this. Let me see if I can explain.
Who can stand before his indignation or His justice...NO ONE! No one except those who are covered in the blood, those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ and the finish work of the Cross, those who believe that He rose from the dead to give us life and that more abundant...those who are just not saying they believe but are living out the life of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit that seals us with promise for His return for us!
The Lord is good....say that with me...The Lord is good! The Lord is a STRONG HOLD in the day of TROUBLE...folks trouble is coming...but what is He for us in a day of trouble...a strong hold...we don't have to worry that He will forget us...HE KNOWS US THAT TRUST IN HIM!
One day...all evil...all sin...all wickedness will be removed and God's righteousness will remain! God Rules the Universe, Let us trust in Him!
BE BLESSED! YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!
With much love for the Brethren!
