  • "Jonah: God’s Compassion Is Different From Ours” Series

    Contributed by Charles Clemons on Feb 10, 2021

    “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.”

    This message is about Jonah lamenting to God in response to God relenting on bringing punishment on the people of Nineveh on account of their repenting at Jonah's preaching.

    # 26 – The Prophet’s Lamenting Jonah 4:1-4 – “But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry. 2 So he prayed to the LORD, and said, “Ah, LORD, was not this what I said when I was still in my country?

  • 7. Displeasure Series

    Contributed by Grant Adams on Nov 29, 2020

    Jonah's displeasure was a deep despondence with God saving the Ninevites.

    Chapter 4 tells us once again, Jonah is the type of person who never does anything halfhearted. If he is going to disobey as in chapter one, he's going to do a good job at it again. I. The Surprise at His Displeasure 1. It is hard to believe. Verse 1 2. We expect the world and the Devil to be more

  • Dancing With The Lord

    Contributed by Dr. Abraham Obadare on Nov 14, 2020

    By God's grace I want to present the incident that happened between Jonah and God as a dance of two friends.

    Often, when we examine the story of Jonah's initial refusal to follow God's instruction to go and peach to the people of Nineveh, we see a disobedient and selfish servant of God. Yes, this is a fact but, be it as it may, I would like to suggest that we look deeper into the story and view it more

  • A Grace Extinguisher And A Merciful God Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Mar 14, 2020

    In his anger Jonah seeks to extinguish the grace and compassion which God has shown to Nineveh. As we go through life we need to be aware of those times when we have also extinguished the grace of God and found ourselves in a place where God is asking, “Do you have a right to be angry?”

    You can listen to the full message here:- Message Jonah 4:1-4 A Grace Extinguisher And A Merciful God Let’s get a summary of Jonah’s evangelism crusade to Nineveh. Jonah proclaimed, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The more

  • Who Was God Trying To Catch?

    Contributed by Barry O Johnson on Sep 10, 2019

    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 more

  • O Lord, Just Kill Me!

    Contributed by Michael Stark on Aug 22, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    God's mercy and our anger can often be in conflict. Such conflict can lead to discouragement that in turn can lead to despair. The child of God must guard his/her heart to avoid falling into deep gloom leading to thoughts of suicide.

    “[God’s mercy toward Nineveh] displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry. And he prayed to the LORD and said, ‘O LORD, is not this what I said when I was yet in my country? That is why I made haste to flee to Tarshish; for I knew that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and more

  • "it's Not Fair!" (Part Four)

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Jun 10, 2019

    The scenarios we've been looking at over the past few weeks seem unfair on the surface but when we examined them we realized that God was not being unfair. As we close out the series, we'll look at Jesus' parable of the workers in the vineyard.

    "IT'S NOT FAIR!" (part four) We looked at Adam and Eve getting kicked out of the garden for one act of disobedience. We looked at the story of Job losing everything despite being upright and blameless. We saw how the prophet suffered death even though he was tricked by a lying more
