GWFT: Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah

Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah Bible Study I wrote for CPH
A Bible study I wrote for Concordia Publishing House was recently published. You can order it from CPH here.

Each study in the God’s Word for Today series provides an in-depth exploration of a book of the Bible. Each session includes:

background information on the book of the Bible, its author, audience, occasion, and purpose
learning experiences that promote exciting and challenging discussions;

notes for leaders that answer questions, suggest a learning process, and provide additional information;
discussion starters that help participants apply God’s Word to their daily lives.

Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah were written to call God's people to repent of their sins, to excercise justice among the oppressed, and to look to the Messiah. Although written against Nineveh, Nahum brings "good news" to believers. In this evil world of ours, Habakkuk declares that "the righteous will live" Zephaniah points to the "day of the LORD," when His people will be saved and the wicked punished. In this study you will

  • see how these prophets proclaim both Law and Gospel;
  • apply their teachings to your own life and the life of the Church;
  • rejoice in the hope of Christ's second coming on the Last Day.

  1. The third message from heaven...
    If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
