NAHUM HABAKKUK AND ZEPHANIAH
Just to let you all know that the Bible Study for these three Minor Prophets has now been published. Remember though that although they are called ‘minor’ prophets – their message is anything but minor! I decided to cover all three books in one BSBP study because they each have only three chapters. However, there is so much to learn from each of them, and hopefully you will enjoy reading them so much that you will want to explore other books and commentaries so you can learn more.
Nahum, Habakkuk and Zephaniah were all prophets at a similar time in the history of Israel i.e. between 650BC and 600BC approximately. In 722BC the Assyrians had invaded and destroyed the northern kingdom of Israel and in 701BC they invaded Judah (see 2 Kings 17:6 and 18:13-18.) At this point in history Assyria was drunk with power and wealth. She would not acknowledge her sin or listen to God.
All three prophets have very serious messages which were very relevant for their time BUT I believe they are also very relevant for the time in which we now live. The Great Day of the Lord is coming soon. Are you looking forward to that, dreading it – or maybe you don’t even believe it is coming? We all know that whether we believe something or not, makes no difference as to whether it is actually true. So surely, with a matter so serious, it makes sense for each of us to urgently seek to find out the truth about all this. God says, ‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’ Jeremiah 29:13. So why not do this and find peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ?
Thank you for your interest and your support. Thank you especially for your prayers. Sales this year have been amazing and whilst I don’t receive a huge amount for each book, nevertheless the small sums mount up and are at the moment helping the wonderful people at Tearfund, who are continuing their great work to prevent children being trafficked.
The book is available on Amazon and in some bookstores. If you need to know a stockist please contact us.
