Hiya reader and master of english!  I recently read The Book of Nahum and it was a super quick read.  I will probably copy it down grain of rice style before the end of the day.  It describes a battle God is waging against Nineveh.  Nahum describes the vision of God in an exceedingly powerful and poetic style only made capable through grace.

Plenty of beautiful language here such as: <The Lord hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. . . The mountains quake at Him and the hills melt and the earth is burned at His presence . . . Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strongholds, go into clay and tread the mortar, make strong the brickkiln.>

When reading this we can imagine our bodies as the battle ground.  God is waging war on His enemies within us as the time is right so as to clean a space for The Holy Spirit, The Word, Jehovah-Jireh, ELOHIM.  That point of view can change the thought process significantly for us when reading such acerbic language in reference to the foes of God.  “For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.”  What happens after a fields dry stubble is removed?  The field is bare.  It is time to plant the seeds of righteousness in our hearts, in our minds, weaving The Word throughout our very flesh and bone, so once again we can be made ready for the harvest.
