“The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power.”~ Nahum 1:3 ~ JEHOVAH “is slow to anger.” When mercy cometh into the world she driveth winged steeds; the axles of her chariot-wheels are red hot with speed; but when wrath goeth forth, it toileth on with tardy footsteps, for God taketh no pleasure in the sinner’s death. God’s rod… (more…)
