Nahum was a prophet. God gave Nahum a vision about what would happen to the city of Nineveh.
Nineveh was a wicked city. The people in Nineveh sinned and rebelled against God. They worshiped false gods and made plans against God. So God was angry with the people in Nineveh.
Nahum told the people that God would destroy their city. Verse 2 of our Bible Reading says, “The Lord is a jealous God. The Lord punishes the guilty, and he is very angry. The Lord punishes his enemies, and he stays angry with them.” Nahum’s prophecy came true. Later, God destroyed the city of Nineveh.
Are you like the people of Nineveh? Have you sinned and rebelled against God? God loves you and wants you to obey and follow Him. Confess your sins to God. Ask Him to forgive you and help you follow Him every day.
