Lessons Learned
  • Preaching the truth convicts the repentant heart
    (Jonah 34-9 Mt. 1241 Lk. 1132)
  • Repentance shows itself in fruits (Jonah 310
    Acts 2620)
  • God is longsuffering, not wishing that any should
    perish (Jonah 310 41-2,11 2 Pet. 39 Rev.
    221)
  • Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a
    reproach (Jonah 34,10 Prov. 1434)

4
Lessons Learned
  • God has two sides goodness and severity mercy
    for the repentant Nineveh of Jonah (310) and
    wrath for the unrepentant Nineveh of Nahum
    (12-8 Rom. 25 1122 1219-21 Heb.
    1030-31 1229)
  • Each generation must have an individual
    relationship with God no ones spiritual life
    can be handed off to another (compare the
    repentant Nineveh of Jonah 35-9 with the wicked
    Nineveh of Nahum 19-15 319)

5
Lessons Learned
  • Pride goes before a fall (Nahum 21-13 Isa.
    105-14)
  • God controls and judges all nations, not just his
    own people (Nahum 31-13 Zeph. 213-15 Acts
    1731)
  • Where are you in your relationship with God? God
    will change to meet your change?
