  • A Disturbing Call From A Merciful God Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Feb 17, 2020
     | 119 views

    The call by God for Jonah to go to Nineveh to preach is a call which confronts Jonah with a disturbing dynamic of God’s unanticipated mercy. Jonah finds this call too disturbing so he goes in the opposite direction to run away from the call of God.

  • Chapter 1 - Running From God Series

    Contributed by Brady Boyd on Jan 30, 2020
     | 304 views

    God said to go east, so he goes west. God says to go overland, instead he takes off toward the sea. Sent to the big city, he tries to flee to the end of the world.

    Jonah Chapter 1 – Running from God February 2, 2020 Jonah 1:2-6 NIV “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”3 But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish.

  • Buying Your Own Ticket To Hell

    Contributed by John Gaston on Jan 15, 2020
     | 715 views

    Nobody really wants to go to Hell. Its very name conveys the ideas of “dread” and “punishment.” As strange as it sounds, one man in Scripture did buy his own ticket to Hell. Possibly some of you are in the process of buying your own ticket there.

    BUYING YOUR OWN TICKET TO HELL Jonah 1:3; 2:1-2 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. A young boy from down south attended Sunday school for the first time with his grandparents who lived up north. He was so excited he couldn’t wait to tell grandma about the lesson. 2. "My teacher taught us all ...read more

    When the will of God encounters reluctance, God goes to work for the sake of all involved.

    THE JONAH DILEMNA Are you really willing to do whatever God calls you to do? Personal Illustration: I was raised in northern Missouri in the 1960s and 70s. I never met or knew a hispanic person in my adolescence. After going to bible college and moving to Texas, things were quite different. I ...read more

    The Incredible story of Jonah and the Depth of God's Grace

    Chuck Swindoll said, “The clock of life is wound but once, And no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop. To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed. To lose one’s health is more. To lose one’s soul is such a loss that no man can restore.” Every hour 5,417 go to meet their Maker. 39 ...read more

  • Who Was God Trying To Catch?

    Contributed by Barry O Johnson on Sep 10, 2019
     | 2,990 views

    Many times when we read the story of Jonah, our focus is on the significance of the great fish. But should that be our focus? This message looks at the message of Jonah that we often miss.

    Tonight, we’re going to have an opportunity to get into a story that’s very familiar to all of us. But I want to look at it from the vantage point of “Who was God trying to catch?” The Holy Spirit speaks to each one of us and He speaks to us individually with words specifically to us. But there ...read more

  • When God’s Ways Don’t Make Sense, Then What?

    Contributed by Douglas Phillips on Jun 23, 2019
     | 2,786 views

    THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE THINK WE KNOW BETTER THAN GOD WHAT HIS PLAN SHOULD BE. IF A LOVED ONE IS SICK AND IN PAIN, WE WANT TO TREAT THE PAIN RIGHT AWAY, WHEN THE PAIN COULD BE NECESSARY TO PROPERLY DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM

    WHEN GOD’S WAYS DON’T MAKE SENSE, THEN WHAT? JONAH 1:1-16 WE’VE JUST STARTED A SERIES DEALING WITH THINGS IN LIFE THAT DO NOT GO AS WE WOULD WANT THEM TO. SOMETIMES IT SEEMS AS IF THERE IS TRIAL AFTER TRIAL PUT ON OUR PLATE AND WE WANT TO ASK GOD WHY THIS IS HAPPENING AND WHEN IT WILL STOP. ...read more

     | 1,341 views

    Many remember Jonah as a book about Jonah and the big fish. This book is really about the relentless love and pursuit of God.

    Intro: What do most people remember about Jonah if you have ever heard the story in VBS or Sunday School? You probably remember that it is a whale of a tale. There would be lots of talk about Jonah and his disobedience and reluctance to go where God tells him to go. The problem with remembering ...read more

    Contributed by Billy Ricks on May 7, 2019
     | 1,073 views

    Part 2 this is not about you. This book is about God and His call and pursuit of man. Especially the pouting prophet, Jonah.

    Intro: I want to remind you that this whale of a tale called the book of Jonah is not about a great big fish, a great big city or a grumpy old prophet. This book is about a Great big God that is willing to graciously deal with a disobedient, disgruntled, disgusted prophet. In this story of a ...read more

  • A Futile Effort Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 13, 2019
     | 1,788 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

    This message looks at the storm that Jonah found himself in while running from God

    Storms of Life 1 It seemed that whenever Dad and I swapped stories about the time we spent together at sea we always wound up talking about storms. We’d talk about how rough it got, how long it lasted, how sick Denn was. I began making trips with Dad on the tugs when I was fourteen, when I was ...read more
