  • How Much Is The Fare To Tarshish? Series

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Jun 6, 2003
    based on 34 ratings

    Jonah refused to go to Tarshish because emotionally he felt unwelcome and theologically he thought he could escape God’s oversight. He paid hidden costs, in vain: the loss of a vessel, the loss of joy, human wreckage, reckoning with eternity.

    When I travel, I don’t want to spend too much money on the travel itself. I’d rather spend my money on whatever there is to buy where I’m going. I don’t want to hand much over to the airline or the railroad. I want to travel cheap. But I sometimes miss an important fact – that when I try to more

  • A Disturbing Call From A Merciful God Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Feb 17, 2020

    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.

    You cal listen to the full message here:- Message Jonah 1:1-3 A Disturbing Call From A Merciful God I don’t have definitive proof but it would be my educated opinion that the story of Jonah … specifically the part where Jonah is swallowed by a more

    Contributed by Mike Hamilton on Mar 4, 2003
    based on 82 ratings

    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.

  • "Are You Going To Tarshish Or Nineveh" Series

    Contributed by Brad Henry on Oct 18, 2011
    based on 3 ratings

    This lesson is about acting on what God desires for us to do. A lot of times we wait, pretend like we don't hear God or just go to Tarshish instead of Nineveh.

    Yesterday we left off where the men on the ship threw Jonah overboard. The sea grew calm and a great fish swallowed Jonah. A large fish could have been a huge sperm whale but the Bible doesn’t say what kind of fish. But its insides had to big enough for Jonah to breathe for three days. more

    Contributed by Craig Benner on Jan 26, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    We all have Ninevahs and Tarshishes in our lives. Which one has the stronger pull in your life. Jonah found out some lessons from running: He Run from God, Ran into God, and Ran back to God.

    The Reluctant Missionary = El Misionero quien faltaba Animo Run to Win not to Renig (Corre a ganar, no a Renunciar) Jonah/Jonás 1:1-3 1 ¶ Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, {Jonah: Gr. Jonas} (KJV) 1 ¶ La palabra de Jehovah vino a Jonás hijo de Amitai, more

  • The Debarkation Of Jonah

    Contributed by Melvin Shelton on Nov 15, 2005
    based on 5 ratings

    Sin never advertises itself truthfully. It only talks about how nice it is going to be in Tarshish and that you should go there. But it never tells you about the storm you are going to encounter resulting in you being thrown overboard.

    Jonah's Journey: The World's Worst Missionary Today we are going to begin a new study. We are going to make our way through the book of Jonah. As we begin our journey with Jonah, let’s clarify one point. Jonah is not the hero of the story. God is! At the beginning Jonah is running more

  • Anywhere But Nineveh

    Contributed by John Gaston on Apr 29, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    God has a Nineveh for every one of us -- a place we don't want to go; a command we don't want to obey. Going to Nineveh is unpopular, it will cost us, it doesn't make sense and it's hard. But God's purpose in dealing with us is to save many souls.

    ANYWHERE BUT NINEVEH Jon. 1:1-17 INTRODUCTION A. HUMOR 1. A city slicker pulled up to a farmhouse. He saw a farmer's wife on the front porch. 2. He pointed down the road; "Can I get to Quincy that way?" "Yep." "How far is it?" "25,000 miles!" 3. "What?" How far is it the other way?" more

  • A Futile Effort Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Feb 13, 2019

    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 more
