Coming to the third and final chapter of this great book, Nahum, speaking for almighty God, pronounces a woe on Nineveh. This formal woe is like a charging document against the city, noting its violence, lies, and harlotry. For these crimes, judgment is coming to the city. Yet this woe is also a reminder of a greater judgment God will bring against all sin.
Today we're taking a closer look at the thirteenth chapter of the Book of Isaiah.

How is the vast superiority of Christ over Adam displayed? Romans 5:20–21 looks forward to the sermon in this week's midweek meeting. In these two verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that by the addition of the Mosaic law to what we had already sinned against, God prepared the way for displaying how much more grace reigns in Christ than even death reigned in Adam.
Key Verse—v. 14: "And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed." (ESV)
Aim: To Enjoy our Christ Today—as we appreciate His Eternal Dominion
Why is so much attention paid to the opulence of Persia in the first half of Esther chapter 1; and is there any message in that section for us today. You will be riveted on the story of Ahasuerus, and even more riveted by the REST of the story.
This recording also includes the reading and conviction of God's moral law, His pardon for His people, (before sermon) and exhortation from the Lord's Table liturgy (after sermon)
1 Thes 4:4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. 7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. 8 Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.
The book of Esther is a penetrating look into life in a outwardly impressive empire. This book can really be a great spiritual weapon if it is rightly understood and rightly applied. This book is for such a time as this in kingdom equipping. Analysts of nearly every stripe are saying that American evangelicalism is drifting into nominalism. Probably so. Hear part of the cure. Divine beauty treatments.
In Daniel 8, we learn of a tyrannical king - Antiochus Epiphanes IV - who would persecute the Jews in an unprecedented manner. He is a type of the antichrist, who will one day bring unprecedented persecution upon Christians.
