Willingness to Forgive; Jonah 1-4
Season 9, Episode 5 • 07-Sep-2021
God’s willingness to forgive is the main theme of the Biblical book of Jonah. Jonah is one of the Old Testament prophets that not only has his own book but is also mentioned in the history of 2 Kings 14:25. It is very clear that Jonah was a man who knew the abuse of the Assyrians and hated them for it, culminating in his response to God’s command to deliver to them a divine message. Jonah did not want to see God respond to them
mercifully, he didn’t want God to forgive them or for the Assyrians to have a revival, and so he ran. This story is driven by God’s unwillingness to give up on the Assyrians and on Jonah. When Jonah was willingly thrown into the sea to embrace his death, God would not let this be the end. As we consider what Jonah said from the belly of the fish, remember that we too are called by God to do things, sometimes uncomfortable things. It is always better for us, and those around us, to follow God faithfully.

When Society Goes Bad!; Micah 5-7
What do we do when our foundations fall and our morality as a society fails? The psalmist asks a great question, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (PS. 11:3). This echoes a lament for Israel’s sins recorded in Micah 7. Micah seems depressed, he seems to believe that a...
God Is Always Right; Nahum 1-3
About 150 years after the prophet Jonah had reluctantly and bitterly preached to the Assyrians in Nineveh, the prophet Nahum is called to do the same. Though Nineveh had repented after Jonah’s message, they had apparently stopped following God. Now, like Jonah, Nahum had to let them know that the...
