     | 142 views

    Many people are confused, perplexed and baffled about this COVID 19 that has now swallowed many people in India and still threatening with more waves to come in future and other new infections are in the pipeline to be unleashed.

    Jonah and the pandemic Jonah 1:4 The LORD hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up.

  • Jonah The Deserter Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 508 views

    He was a deliberate, determined, disobedient deserter of duty, and yet he was an instrument of God for the salvation of many. That is the real wonder, and not the whale experience.

    Jonah is one of the most famous books of the Old Testament. It is known of by masses of people who never read any of the Bible. Strange as it may seem it was the first book of the Bible to be translated into Chinese. The trouble with all the widespread knowledge about Jonah is that it is all ...read more

  • Jonah's Flight Lessons Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 399 views

    The lesson that many point out here is that we learn by this experience that good timing, and all things working out to aid you in your plan, is no necessary proof that it is God's will. Even the most evil of schemes can work like a charm,

    Many of you have no doubt heard several times of the boy who drew a picture in Sunday School of an airplane with four people in it. The Sunday School teacher asked him what part of the Bible he was illustrating, and he said it was a picture of the flight of Mary and Joseph with Jesus into Egypt. ...read more

  • Awakened By A Pagan Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 340 views

    All it takes for many pagans to become children of God is a faithful prophet who will awake at their rebuke; pray for their preservation, and begin to proclaim the person of Christ.

    Jonah and Paul were alike in that they were both commissioned by God as missionaries to the Gentiles, and both were alike in their desire to go to Spain. Both of them had the experience of being on a storm tossed ship with pagans. These superficial similarities, however, become material for a ...read more

  • The Lord Or Luck Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 226 views

    God cannot let a man be free to disobey His law and at the same time compel him to obey it. This is the price God was willing to pay to make a man with free will.

    \ A speculator, who won and lost money by instinct, was discussing success with a business man who had done very well. They were discussing whether success was attained by planned judgment, or by mere luck. The business man said judgment, but the speculator held out for luck. He pointed out to the ...read more

  • The Fear Of God Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 445 views

    The word fear in relation to God can mean very opposite things. There is a fear of God which is terror at his might and wrath, and there is a fear of God which is reverence, or worship. There is still another which is knowledge and wisdom of God.

    We live in a world where words are weapons. Someone said, "Words are weapons and we must wield them well if we would win." Much of the success of cons and cults is the direct result of their clever use of words. So many arguments are often based on a perverted manipulation of words, but ...read more

  • Scripture And Suicide Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 9, 2021
     | 260 views

    Suicide is almost always folly in our culture, for it is basically just a means of escape. It is usually based on ignorance of the future. People think their present situation is permanent, and they cannot stand to think of living with their present burden for the rest of their lives.

    The book of Jonah gives a very favorable account of the attitude and character of the pagans involved. In fact, they are at points pictured on a higher level than Jonah himself. At last, however, we see a change in Jonah, and some of his good character breaks through. The sailors had all ...read more

     | 463 views

    “True compassion comes from God. It is sacrificial and reflects and honors Christ. It is otherworldly. It is inspiring, beautiful, and compelling. But the sin of racism is evidenced by a lack of compassion for those deemed inferior.”

    The Reluctant Missionary: Jonah Preaches to Nineveh Jonah 3:1-10 The story of Jonah and the whale is a favorite story at Vacation Bible School.

    This devotion is about the 2nd call of God to Jonah to go and preach to the people of Nineveh. This is the 22nd of 31 devotions on the book of Jonah, where a comparison is made between Jonah and The Church-at-large, in the light of the present global pandemic.

     | 662 views

    One of the unfortunate things about the book of Jonah is: most people know only about the great fish, but they know nothing of the great God.

  • 2. The Futility Of Running From God Series

    Contributed by Grant Adams on Nov 29, 2020
     | 611 views

    We cannot run away from God. We all try sometimes. We all try to make our own choices do our own thing. We never seem to learn the futility of it all.

    I. A Deliberate Choice 1. The Ship 2. Life is made up of choices. Hebrews 11:24-25 3. Jonah made a deliberate choice to rebel against God. a. Tarshish was the farthest point that he could flee.

    based on 1 rating
     | 658 views

    This is the 15th of 31 devotions from a series called, 'The Church Called Jonah.' In these devotions, which are based on the book of Jonah, I make a comparison between The Church-at-large in the light of this present global pandemic.

    # 15 – The First Death Wish Jonah 1:12: “And he said to them, ‘Pick me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will become calm for you.
