Great Sermon! Good sermon that brought out what God wanted to say through Nahum about his great jealously, power, and long-suffering. I enjoyed the care for the Word of God as well as the patient dealing with terms. Even the Christ-centered focus of the sermon.
However, I would like to say you never went through verses 7 and 8 though you said you would, and I think a good opportunity was missed to proclaim Christ as the only and sole refuge from the Father's wrath that no other refuge is sufficient for, that though Nahum asked a rhetorical question of "who can take the heat of God's anger" the answer to this question being Christ displays his importance as well as the concept that God "will by no means clear the guilty" meaning that our sins were not swept under the rug but Jesus dealt with the reserved wrath from long sufferings on the cross.
Other than that loved the sermon, it made Nahum clearer to me than ever.
Great Sermon! This is a powerful sermon! I have been reading in preparation of preaching on this text. In my reading no commentator that I have read has so richly mined this passage of it's treasures and brought it so forcibly home to the conscience as David Dykstra. Over the years, I have found David Dykstra to be a consistently good exegete. God has truly gifted him. I highly recommend this sermon!
This Sermon Needs Somebody to Comment Somethings are worth fighting for and should be fought for and some simply are not. This sermon has been a blessing to me, and having listened to it several times, it finally dawned on me that no one had commented, so I thought I would, as a child of God needs encouragement that sometimes in the Providence of God obedience and faithfulness will mean we will indeed earnestly contend for the
Truth for the sake of the Faith once for all delivered to the saints, and the witness of the Gospel

Great Sermon! Thank you Bro David, I needed to listen to something by a familiar voice to comfort me. My Lord chose last night to take my beloved momma home. Leaving my job four yrs ago to be full time caregiver as Alzheimers stole her away from me, I was determined to walk her home and not put her in a home. God in His mercy allowed me to do do. Nevertheless, after this role the last four yrs I'm feeling a bit lost and unbalanced coming home from the hospital to an empty house. I ask, what now Lord. I am trusting Him to direct my steps and glory in being upheld by His everlasting arms thank you for this sermon that brought me comfort.
Excellent excellent Sermon! An excellent rendition of what the new birth is. This should also show us the supernatural aspect of our physical birth also, in that only God bestows life, both physical and spiritual. And each is a gift that is more precious than Gold. We tend to discount physical birth because it happens to every one but with out Gods breath of life, in each, neither would exist. Praise God from whom all blessings flow, for it is only by Him and through Him that we have life, and breath, and have our being !
Excellent message. What do we pursue in life? Thank you for this excellent message from the book of Ecclesiastes. Very sobering to think of what we actually pursue in life, and consider to be paramount.May God richly bless your ministry there in Lafayette NJ.
Profound Practical Truths I am so thankful for the straight forward, pure exposition of the word of God. Pastor Harrison has both explained the text of the Bible and has given its practical applications on the life of a believer. The truths in this sermon stirred my heart!
Great Sermon! I've listened to a few of Pastor Dykstra's sermons and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Wow, the OT is loaded with many pearls of wisdom! Do not many of us, like Jeroboam, seek the Lord only when calamity strikes, and do not seek Him every day. I have been feeling convicted of this very thing myself lately, so it is amazing that I have only just now been led to listen to this sermon and say "amen, Lord, amen, only Thou art holy and true, and I am but flesh" . Thank the Lord for His forgiveness and graciousness when we see our sinfulness and repent before Him.
