Today we consider a historical section where the Prophet Jonah is mentioned, and consider some lessons from how the LORD God deals with both nations of Israel and Judah and their respective kings. I didn’t have the dates of the kings’ reigns when I recorded the podcast, but you can see them below on this…
We see Jonah now walking in the Spirit, obedient to the LORD in both word and deed. Then we discuss faith and works; learn an important lesson on prayer; and rejoice in the multitude of God’s mercies (Psalm 106:45).
Key Points: We consider Jonah as a type of a Christian, within whom wars the Spirit and the flesh. We consider the work of the Holy Spirit within the world, and the importance of believers being awake and engaging in prayer.
