  • God's Grace To Nineveh

    Contributed by James Jack on Dec 14, 2005
    based on 14 ratings
     | 5,943 views

    We don’t like our enemies receiving mercy, but God is gracious to all who repent.

    Jonah 3 When we read of the prophet Jonah many of us go away thinking, “what a fool!” What a selfish fool!” But what many of us don’t realise is that our reaction to the prospect of our enemies getting away with it is exactly the same as Jonah’s. There was one kid in my class at primary school ...read more

    based on 47 ratings
     | 2,929 views

    All of the present day news concerning Iraq points to the place where civilization began. It could well be the place where it ends.

    BABYLON, NINEVEH, EDEN AND HISTORY AS WE KNOW IT. About all we hear when we tune into the daily news concerns “The War with Iraq.” Will we go to war” Or will we not? The issue is front page news on every newspaper in the world – it is the lead story on every news program on TV – As I was ...read more

    Where is your Nineveh?

    “LORD SEND SOMEONE ELSE” TEXT: JONAH 1:1-3 INTRO: HERE WE READ OF THE PROPHET JONAH, WHOSE NAME MEANS “DOVE”. THE BOOK OF JONAH DOES NOT CONTAIN PROPHECY PER SE, RATHER IT CONTAINS THE HISTORY OF A PROPHET..... 1. A PROPHET RELUCTANT TO FULFIL THE MISSION GOD HAS FOR HIM. 2. A PROPHET WHO ...read more

  • Yesterday, Today Or Tomorrow? Series

     | 6,516 views

    We know what happened after Jonah preached in Nineveh but what happened to Nineveh after that?

    He arrived looking like a character out of a Wes Craven movie. He definitely wasn’t dressed for success and pretty wasn’t a word that would be used in describing him. His skin was bleached a pasty white, his hair was matted and there was a slightly fishy smell about him. If you were to describe ...read more

  • The Prophet Jonah

    Contributed by Ken Smith on Dec 19, 2001
    based on 56 ratings
     | 3,289 views

    During the reign of Jeroboam II God sent Jonah to Nineveh to call its people to repent of their sins; Nineveh surprisingly repented but Jonah was unexcited about God’s grace.

    Jonah was a prophet sent by God to proclaim a message in a foreign land of Assyria, unlike other prophets who voiced their message to their home lands of Israel and Judah. Assyria was a constant threat to the people of Israel. To the Israelites, Nineveh was a byword for evil. Famous for their ...read more

  • Concerns Of God

    Contributed by Greg Bryan on Nov 16, 2004
    based on 12 ratings
     | 1,192 views

    History records that perhaps God was working long before Jonah went to Nineveh. Nineveh was located about 550 miles from Samaria. It was the second largest city in the Assyrian Empire. It was protected by an outer and an inner wall. The inner was was

    Concerns of God “Should I not be concerned about that great city?” 4:11 About The Prophet He is one of the four Prophets whose ministries Christ referred to. The only Prophet whose writing was mostly a story not a message. He’s the only OT Prophet to attempt to _RUN_ away from ...read more

  • The God Of Second Chances Series

    based on 34 ratings
     | 4,227 views

    Can God still use you in spite of your past failures? This message examines Jonah’s usefulness in spite of his past, God’s mercy in light of Nineveh’s repentance and the influence of obedience.

    Jonah 3:1 (NLT) Then the Lord spoke to Jonah a second time: Not Disqualified • Jonah was invited to participate in God’s work – Even though he had run – Even though he had been disobedient • Serving God is not based on our past achievements or failures – Based on God’s grace – Our ...read more

  • The Disease Of Jonah - That Ain't Right Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Oct 17, 2005
    based on 66 ratings
     | 7,571 views

    We don’t often dwell on the last chapter of Jonah - it’s a real downer. We last see Jonah still sulking over Nineveh’s salvation. What possible reason could God have for ending the book this way?

    OPEN: How many of you have heard the story of Jonah? (every hand went up) Now, how many of you believe Jonah was a righteous man? (most raised their hands) How many of you believe he wasn’t a righteous man? (a small show of hands) I personally believe Jonah was a righteous man. In fact, I ...read more

  • Jonah's Revival

    Contributed by Steve Woods on Apr 24, 2004
    based on 10 ratings
     | 3,489 views

    Jonah was used by God to bring about revival in Nineveh, even though Jonah was an unwilling instrument of His will. This message emphasizes the need for revival today.

    Jonah 3:1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, 3:2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. 3:3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three ...read more

  • A Picture Of God

    Contributed by Dean Morgan on Sep 15, 2004
    based on 27 ratings
     | 2,677 views

    The book of Nahum is basically a prophecy of judgment to a foreign nation, Nineveh. In beginning his sermon, Nahum first draws attention to the nature and character of God.

    TEXT: Nahum 1:1-8 TITLE: A PICTURE OF GOD The book of Nahum is basically a prophecy of judgment to a foreign nation, Nineveh. In beginning his sermon, Nahum first draws attention to the nature and character of God. In verses 2 and 3, we see that God is a God of vengeance. There are ...read more

  • Flight 313 Now Boarding For Tarshish

    Contributed by Mike Hamilton on Mar 4, 2003
    based on 82 ratings
     | 5,501 views

    The trip away from Nineveh, toward Tarshish "can be" a spiritual journey that many of us take when we are trying to escape our responsibility to do God’s will.

    “Flight 313 Now Boarding for Tarshish” Jonah 1-2 (Read Jonah 1:1-17, 2:10) This is the story of Jonah. But isn’t it also the story of many Christians today? Perhaps it is YOUR story, because it is a story about running from the Lord. Verse 2 tells us that the Lord told Jonah to go to ...read more

    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,159 views

    #3 of 4 on Jonah. This message contrasts the heartless obedience of Jonah with the heartfelt repentance of the people of Nineveh. I am endebted to Dan Baumgartner of Bethany Presbyterian for many thoughts.

    Four questions God asks Every Believer Where Are You Going? Where Do You Come From? What Are You Doing? What Do You Care About? This morning we return again to the Old Testament story of Jonah… Jonah and the big fish. And again this morning, I would encourage you not to get bogged down by ...read more

    based on 12 ratings
     | 4,328 views

    After all that’s happened so far – Jonah’s initial disobedience; God’s humbling of Jonah; Jonah’s going to Nineveh at the second time of asking; the Ninevites’ believing the message and being spared – surely you’d expect there to be a happy ending!

    JONAH CHAPTER FOUR INTRODUCTION Most of us love happy endings! My girls when they were little loved Disney’s, ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ In the closing scenes the beast lies dying from a wound inflicted during combat with Gaston his enemy. Belle the beauty finally confesses her love for the ...read more

  • Jonah Obeys Series

    Contributed by Alan Mccann on Sep 11, 2006
    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,276 views

    The message is simple, the time urgent and Jonah obeys.

    JONAH 3 JONAH OBEYS I want you to watch a short video clip – you have seen it before – it contains words from people to do with fulfilling the command of Christ to take the gospel to the world. Those words are striking. I also found them haunting and challenging. I want you, if you can, to ...read more
