Jonah Chapter 4

Today I will give my thoughts on Chapter 4 in Jonah, where we see Jonah get upset and angry with God for showing compassion towards the Ninevites. In this chapter we see the culmination of Jonah's hatred towards the Ninevites, around 120,000 had turned from their evil ways and God had shown them mercy; which … Continue reading Jonah Chapter 4

Jonah Chapter 3

At the beginning of chapter 3 we see God telling Jonah for a second time to go to Nineveh, I presume Jonah had a wash before he journeyed to Nineveh to go tell them of God's warning.

The enemy started tempting mankind from the outset with Adam and Eve, and hasn't stopped since. It's amazing how three words can … Continue reading Temptation
