Is God Against You?
150 years have passed since Ninevah's initial repentance, and it is now no longer even seen.
Most well known verse: 1:7- The Lord is good, a refuge in time of trouble. He cares for those who trust him.
Do you trust Him? Empty words to those who are not in Christ
Reality: Same God of love is a God of vengeance
Proverbs 29:1, Romans 8:31
Why was God against Ninevah? Rebellion to God. Conscious decision to do what one pleases.
Jeremiah 6:14-15 "they dress the wound as though it is not serious....ashamed of conduct? No they have no shame and do not know how to blush" Sin today in the works doesn't phase us
Amos 6:1- Woe to them who are at ease...
Nahum 3:19- Final words he tells Ninevah, "nothing can heal your wound, your injury is fatal..who has not felt your endless cruelty.."
Scriptures speaks the Lords justness. We live in a society that doesn't speak about any of that and only focuses on his love.
Are you living your life in rebellion to God? If so, he is against you
Can you stand in front of God in submission? God desires us all to be saved, but God will not tolerate rebellion and his justness will pay a visit to all those living in rebellion.
We have to decide to listen to Gods word and not just what we want to hear.
