Nahum, whose name means "Comforter" or "Full of Comfort," is unknown except for the brief caption that opens his prophecy. His identification as an "Elkoshite" does not help greatly , since the location of Elkosh is uncertain. Capernaum, the city in Galilee so prominent in the ministry of Jesus, means "Village of Nahum," and some have speculated, but without solid proof, that its name derives from the prophet. He prophesied to Judah during the reigns of Manasseth, Amon, and Josiah. His contemporaries were Zephaniah, Habakuk, and Jeremiah. Written shortly before 612 B.C.
"The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him".
The Lord is good a strong hold in the day of trouble and he knoweth them that trust in him
No matter how many promises are made, they are yes and amen in Christ. Keep in mind that Christ has fulfilled the Law for righteousness and you are in him. His faithfulness qualifies you for any and all promises, not your ability to keep the Law or remain faithful. Now it's up to you to believe in your heart that you are in Him and He is your righteousness. Remember that you are a joint-heir with Jesus as you read thru these Old Testament promises.
