In the book of Nahum chapter 1 verse 5, an image is painted of the God of creation approaching the earth in wrath and with vengeance.

In the white-hot plasma of the Lord's anger, Nahum describes the earth's response as follows;

The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away.

The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it.

In the presence of the Lord, indignant at the unrighteousness found on the earth, mountains and hills shudder and get so heated that they melt. A global tremor causes the whole world to jitter in its orbit and every person is shaken.

This fearsome vision of how unchallengable the Lord is reminds us of our own frailty and helplessness before Him.

By His lovingkindness, He has provided redemption through the death and ressurection of His Son Jesus Christ who was the sacrifice given to save us from our sins if we humble ourselves and turn to Him for salvation.

Let us bless the name of Him who is unimaginably mighty and yet made Himself a sacrifice for us sinners who were otherwise lost forever.
