Item description for Exploring Nahum and Obadiah: An expositional commentary (Exploring the Bible) by Tim Shenton...

Overview
Nahum Approximately one hundred years after Jonah preached to the citizens of Nineveh to turn from their evil ways and escape imminent judgement, God commissioned Nahum to prophesy the citys complete destruction. At the time of his burden, the Assyrian Empire was both strong and wealthy, yet Nahum prophesied that soon the entire kingdom would be crushed forever under the power of Gods wrath. From the opening sentence The LORD is a jealous and avenging God filled with wrath to the poignant conclusion Nothing can heal your wound; your injury is fatal, the fury, the omnipotence, the righteousness, the faithfulness of God are strikingly portrayed. Nineveh will fall, not because of the might of other nations, but because the Holy One of Israel takes vengeance on his foes. Obadiah Obadiahs prophecy unveils Gods sovereignty over all nations and events, and gives an example of his direct intervention in the political and military affairs of human history. The Sovereign LORD does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him What have you done? It is the God of history who summons and equips the nations to destroy the Edomites for their arrogance and violence against their brother Jacob. It is the Judge and Ruler of mankind who gives the Edomites no hope of salvation. It is the great King over all the earth who, in accordance with his everlasting covenant, delivers the house of Jacob from their enemies and reunites them with their northern brothers. Both prophecies are a revelation of Gods character and his moral government of the worlda revelation that contains a message of hope, comfort and encouragement for every Christian THE LORD REIGNS FOR EVER! It matters not how many nations oppose his rule or oppress his people; it makes no difference how many spiritual forces of evil ally themselves for his dethronement, for the Lords purposes will prevail. All that he has promised will be fulfilled. He is in control. His dominion is an eternal dominion.
