Title: JONAH'S STORY


1
JONAHS STORY A QUINTESSENTIAL APPLICATION
  • STORY
  • HISTORY
  • ALLEGORY
  • ELIS TWO SONS
  • EGYPT
  • ISRAEL
  • CANAAN

2
THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY, VOL. 1, p. 400
  • THE ARK OF GOD
  • God reproved Eli for his criminal neglect of
    family discipline. Eli reproved his sons, but did
    not restrain them.

3
DESIRE OF AGES, p. 308
  • All who obey as He did are likewise declaring
    that the law is "holy, and just, and good."
    Romans 712. On the other hand, all who break
    God's commandments are sustaining Satan's claim
    that the law is unjust, and cannot be obeyed.
    Thus they second the deceptions of the great
    adversary, and cast dishonor upon God. They are
    the children of the wicked one, who was the first
    rebel against God's law. To admit them into
    heaven would again bring in the elements of
    discord and rebellion, and imperil the well-being
    of the universe. No man who willfully disregards
    one principle of the law shall enter the kingdom
    of heaven.

  • JONAH 17
  • And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and
    let us cast lots, that we may know for whose
    cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots,
    and the lot fell upon Jonah.
  • ROMANS 224
  • For the name of God is blasphemed among the
    Gentiles through you, as it is written.

INTERROGATION
  • QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
  • JONAH 18
  • WHY ALL OF A SUDDENEVIL?
  • WHAT IS YOUR OCCUPATION?
  • WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?
  • WHAT IS YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN?
  • WHAT RACE OR ETHNIC GROUP?

PATRIARCHS AND PROPHETS, p. 494, 495
  • THE FALL OF JERICHO
  • God's command had been disregarded by one of
    those appointed to execute His judgments. And the
    nation was held accountable for the guilt of the
    transgressor "They have even taken of the
    accursed thing, and have also stolen, and
    dissembled also." Instruction was given to Joshua
    for the discovery and punishment of the criminal.
    The lot was to be employed for the detection of
    the guilty. Step by step the investigation went
    on. Closer and still closer came the fearful
    test. First the tribe, then the family, then the
    household, then the man was taken, and Achan the
    son of Carmi, of the tribe of Judah, was pointed
    out by the finger of God as the troubler of
    Israel.

JONAHS BLASPHEMOUS TESTIMONY

    fear the LORD, the God of heaven, which hath made

    casteth out fear because fear hath torment.

  • JONAH 111, 12
  • Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto
    thee, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the
    sea wrought, and was tempestuous. And he said
    unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the
    sea

    the fish's belly, And said, I cried by reason of
    mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me
    out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou
    heardest my voice.
  • PSALMS 234
  • Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
    shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou
    art with me thy rod and thy staff they comfort
    me.

  • JONAHS MEMOIRS
  • JONAH 28, 9
  • They that observe lying vanities forsake their
    own mercy. But I will sacrifice unto thee with
    the voice of thanksgiving I will pay that that
    I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
  • JONAH 2 10
  • And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited
    out Jonah upon the dry land.
