We are going to learn about that
"day of vengeance" in this book of Nahum (comfort),
which you might say is the book of "Comfort for all that mourn",
who do wait and trust and rely on the power of God and His "bow"
to protect them while He avenges the injustices of His enemies!
We will also learn (vs. 7)
that our Father knows exactly who "they" are who trust in Him.
Are you one of them?
Nahum 1:7 "The LORD is good, a strong
hold in the day of trouble;
and He knoweth them that trust in Him."
The Book of Nahum, therefore, is about the Second Tribulation,
not the Great Tribulation of Satan when he comes to earth as the spurious messiah brought about by the Assyrian
who comes upon the land to take captive the souls of men.
No, the day of vengeance of our God
and the day He brings the nations to valley of Jehoshaphat (Yahveh-judged) to judge them is at the 7th Trump.
That "day of vengeance" will give comfort to ALL them
i.e. ALL who lament over the injustice and corruption in this world.
And the word "ALL" means all those saints who are both in heaven and on earth.
Rev. 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
In the meantime know this with certitude from the Word
even from this Book of Comfort: God "shall NOT AT ALL acquit the wicked" (Nahum 1:3)
and they shall receive their just reward for their unrepentant ways!
You see, there is "nahum" just in knowing that justice shall prevail from "El-kosh", at the powerful hand of Almighty God!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
