  • Running On Empty Series

    Contributed by Mark Schaeufele on Apr 22, 2012
    based on 4 ratings
     | 6,735 views

    When God calls you to do something you had better run to Him because you cannot run from Him.

    Running On Empty Text: Jonah 1:1-16 Introduction 1. Illustration: A hospital administrator was once startled to see a patient fleeing down the hall out of the operating room, his loose hospital gown flapping the breeze behind him. He stopped the fleeing patient and said, "Do you mind telling me ...read more

  • Swallowed Up

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Dec 11, 2013

     | 3,722 views

    Any time you run from God, you never go “up"; you always go “down.” God sometimes allows us to face frightening circumstances so that we will learn to trust and obey Him. It’s always best to obey the Lord right away - then we won’t be “swallowed up.”

    Opening illustration: Being shocked by electricity can be very dangerous. Just ask professional golf legend Lee Trevino. He was struck by lightning while sitting under a tree during a tournament several years ago. He said, “It bolted my arms and legs out stiff, jerked me off the ...read more

     | 6,872 views

    Obeying the voice of God the first time you are told

    There is much to be said and much to be learned about a preacher named Jonah. God had a message to send the people of Ninevah and the mouthpiece He chose to use decided to go a different way. How many times in my life I have chose to go the wrong direction when God spoke. In the first chapter and ...read more

    Sometimes God allows storms in our lives because He is trying to get our attention! We need to recognize these storms, and then we need to recognize what we need to throw overboard!!

    VS 2 – ALL WICKEDNESS WILL EVENTUALLY COME BEFORE THE LORD FOR JUDGEMENT!!! Acts 17:30 - And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 2 Corinthians 5:10 - For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the ...read more

    The amazing story of Jonah reminds us: 1) Don't run from God, 2) When life gets you down, look up, 3) Respond to God's second chance, and 4) Get God's heart for people. Like Jonah, we need to give up the "reluctant prophet" role and stay in God's will.

    Jonah 3:1-10 Aligning My Will with God’s Prophets with a Purpose – Week 2 Do you ever feel like some people are beyond hope, that they are incapable of change? Or maybe you’ve felt like God wanted you to do something, but you resisted that urge? If so, you can identify with the prophet Jonah. ...read more

  • Storm, Sleep, And Sacrifice

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on May 4, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,390 views

    New Year's Day 1989: Jonah, running from his responsibility, fell asleep. It might have been the sleep of a rationalized conscience; or depression. But a greater than Jonah is here, Christ, who can heal both conscience and soul.

    It's not easy to stay out of the storms, no matter what escape you plan. It's just not easy to keep from getting rained on and buffeted around when the storm is coming, no matter what means you use to take shelter. This week, on the afternoon of the sudden squall, I had gone home to attend to ...read more

Jonah 1:1-16 1Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 2Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. 3But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went ...read more

  • A Futile Effort Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 13, 2019
     | 3,386 views

    God spoke to Jonah, calling him to go and cry against Nineveh. Foolishly, Jonah thought he could flee the presence of God. However, God intended for Nineveh to hear a warning, and He intended Jonah to deliver that warning. It is futile to try and flee God's presence!

    A Futile Effort Jonah 1: 1-10 Having considered the introduction for Jonah, I want to remind us of the major theme of the book. Most tend to focus solely on Jonah’s miraculous deliverance from the belly of the great fish, but that is just one scene from this account in Scripture. In fact, that ...read more

    God’s love is so misunderstood. This message looks at a prophecy delivered in 2008 about what God’s love means.

    God is good. All the time. To me. Say it again. God is good. All the time. To me! Praise the Lord! A couple of weeks ago I was reading through some of the prophecies that have come forth here in this church. I came across one from 2008 that’s titled “Love, Repentance, and Judgment.” As I started ...read more

    In chapter one of the book of Jonah, we learn some important lessons about rebellion against God.

    The story of Jonah and the whale is one with which most of us have been familiar since we were children. But it should not be thought of as a story only for children. This little book contains some very important lessons for adults as well. Each chapter teaches an important lesson. In chapter ...read more
