Discuss Jonah 1

    Ge.1:21 "Up Down and across"

    "And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good."

    When God commanded 'Let there be light" the word went forth, just as the dove was sent out of Noah's ark.(Ge.8:11). It came duly back with evidence that the earth was indeed dry. Does it not resonate in the matter it throws light on the quality of the word? Isaiah inspired by the Spirit speaks "it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."(Is.55:11). The Spirit likewise annotates the same truth in this verse,"Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days." (Ec.11:1)It is thus God's sovereignty holds the heights, depths and uttermost parts of his kingdom. There is a word wide web. When He sent his only begotten Son his humanity was set as the word become flesh. When he was demanded of the tribute money he rested in word of his Father. (Matt.17:27) He would not offend the powers that be nor would he let 'other man's riches' corrupt him. All His promises in him is yes. That is what eternal word does for His children. Even a whale would know it. "Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."( Jonah 1:17) The word sent forth from God showed Jonah some home truths about him. He was entangled as 'spooky' science speaks of a pair of electrons, and was thus with God whether he liked it or not."Prepare to meet thy God ( Amos 4:12). The eternal word is forever settled in the heaven. Amen (Ps.119:89)

    As in the case of Jonah the whale was a sign. (Matt.12:39-40) Every life form is thus set in His will.

    Thank you for your comments David0921. I re-read the Book of Jonah & agree to some things you shared (the wickedness of the Ninevites & God's Judgement against them). But you wrote, "God had worked in their hearts to save them". I think that you meant that salvation from their sins would be their blessed end.

    Looking at this Book, I learn: Jonah 1:2 (the wickedness of Nineveh had come before God & He planned for their destruction).

    Jonah 3:2 (a command came a second time to Jonah to preach God's Word to them). Jonah 3:4 (Jonah's message of destruction, unless they repent & turn from evil). Jonah 3:5 (the people (& king vv 6-9) believed the message of coming destruction, repented & left off their evil ways). Jonah 3:10 (God recognized their repentance & renunciation of evil). And what did God do as a result? Were they granted salvation for their hearts of sin, or were they granted salvation from an impending destruction by God?

    Moving forward to our Lord's time with the Jewish religious leaders; & to Matthew 12:38-42. Jesus spoke of the sign of Jonah (Christ in the grave), & "the men of Nineveh rising in judgement & condemnation against this generation". How could these Ninevites accomplish this? Because they heard, repented & obeyed God's Word of destruction against them whilst the Jews refused. And so also would the Queen of Sheba speak against this generation. These folk of Nineveh & Sheba would condemn the Jews for their rejection of Christ & His Message of repentance. The Ninevites repented & were not destroyed (unlike those of Sodom who faced utter destruction), but did their repentance grant them salvation & eternal life? If you read it as that it did, then I would say that I don't agree. Onto Page 2.

    2. A second crucial rule of biblical hermeneutics is that passages must be interpreted historically, grammatically, and contextually. Interpreting a passage historically means we must first seek to understand the culture, background, and situation that prompted the writing. For example, in order to understand Jonah's flight, in Jonah 1:1-3, we should learn of the history of the Assyrians as it related to Israel.

    Interpreting a passage grammatically requires one to follow the rules of grammar and recognize the nuances of Hebrew and Greek. For example, when Paul writes of "the great God and Saviour Jesus Christ" in Titus 2:13, the rules of grammar state that God and Savior are parallel terms and they are both in apposition to Jesus Christ; in other words, Paul clearly calls Jesus "our great God" & not identifying the two Persons separately in the Deity. Interpreting a passage contextually involves considering the context of a verse or passage when trying to determine the meaning. The context includes the verses immediately preceding and following it, the chapter, the book, and indeed the entire Bible. For example, many puzzling statements in Ecclesiastes become clearer when kept in context; the book of Ecclesiastes is written from the earthly perspective 'under the sun' ( Ecclesiastes 1:3). In fact, the phrase 'under the sun' is repeated many times in this book, establishing the context for all that is "vanity" in this world.

    3. A third rule of biblical hermeneutics is that Scripture is always the best interpreter of Scripture (& this you believe & stated clearly). For this reason, we always compare Scripture with Scripture when trying to determine the meaning of a passage. For example, Isaiah's condemnation of Judah's desire to seek Egypt's help and their reliance on a strong cavalry ( Isaiah 31:1) was motivated, in part, by God's explicit command that His people not go to Egypt to seek horses ( Deuteronomy 17:16).

    I have also discovered by the help of our Teacher (God The Spirit) that God dealt with the Old Testament people with Love (He created humans to have a better relationship with them. A relationship better than he had with any of His angels, especially Lucifer), Anger (due to His disappointment at the garden of Eden and downward spiralling of sin degradation in human race), Grace (using them for His Agenda despite the fact that they not deserving in of it) and mercy (because of course "He will have mercy on those He would" - He is The God Of Creation, This has the prerogative to do what pleases Him. Also because His plan for the creation of humans in relative to the pre-created earth and satan and the fact that Jesus already died for the humans before they were created has to be fulfilled). Please What Is Your Take On This? I Stand Corrected...
  • Josephine-Agape on Jonah 1 - 1 year ago
    How did the other people know how to sacrifice to the Lord? Does it mean they also knew the Lord of Jonah (our Lord)? Earlier in the chapter it indicated "everyone called on his god" not "The Lord" does it mean the use of the word "god" was for story telling purpose and not to be specific as to which, god or for Our Lord?
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 76 - 1 year ago
    Psalm 76. Here we are reminded of God's victory over His enemies and His purpose to save the "meek of the earth" (v. 9). Jesus Himself stated that "the meek shall inherit the earth." ( Matt. 5:5). This would no doubt include the saints who were raptured and the souls of those martyred in the Tribulation as well as the few that survive in hiding.

    Verses 1 and 2 indicate God being known in Israel. This and it being ..." dwelling place" show a future implication here once they realize who their Messiah is and He returns to rule from Jerusalem in the Millennium.

    Verses 3 through 6 remind us of the Exodus with the weapons and animals of warfare mentioned; and the sinking in the Red Sea putting "chariot and horse..." into a "..dead sleep."

    When we continue on to verses 7 through 12 seem to indicate a world wide end times fulfillment. We see the "earth" fearing and still and once again verse 9 shows saving the meek; but we notice it says ALL the meek of the earth.

    Verse 10 reminds us of verses such as Isaiah 49:23; as well as Isaiah 24:22 where we see a restraint followed eventually by final judgment. Verse 11 reminds us of the verse in Zechariah 14:8. There are certain foolish vows that are not to be taken but God expects men to do this as part of worship so in that case serving God is important (see Jonah 1:16).

    The last verse sort of reinforces the idea of God ruling with an iron rod and the earlier theme of verse 10 ( Rev. 19:15; Psalm 2:7-9).
  • Ronnette - In Reply on James 1 - 1 year ago
    I did a thorough study on when Jesus died. It was very interesting that men follows the traditions of men. Paul already warned us in Colossians 2:8

    I personally confirmed that Jesus died on Wednesday. Just as the pattern of a wonderful God has created a day, so understanding that a day starts in the evening and the morning Genesis 1:5. Then next a great God gave the Jews a great and only sign of Jonah 1:17 and Matthew 12:40 a prophetic sign of when Jesus will die, buried and resurrected for 3 days and 3 nights. Our God is such a great Intelligent Designer so that the true believers will not be deceived tossed to and fro ( Ephesians 4:14) by any so-called Religious Christian Deceivers. So by knowing this you will know who is lying to you and to stay away from this cult. Revelation 18:4

    It was also a perfect match on the day of Passover and the Sabbath. Noticed the day Mary went to the tomb and her preparation of her spices. I will leave a room for you to study.

    So anybody says Jesus died on Friday, it is fake news they are making you a merchandised 2 Peter 2:3; Revelation 18:11; Revelation 18:12 Stay away immediately if they do not listen to the truth. The truth will set you free. John 14:6. The greatest and intelligent thing God said is that there is no other interpretation in the word of God. So if you do not get it you must be a lost person and not saved or just not reading your Bible enough. I do want ALL to be saved 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. I just hate the Nicolaitans (2X) Revelations 2:6; Revelation 2:15. Beware of many modern Pharisees.

    Main thing is that we true believers 1 John4:2-3; 2 John 1:7 should not be divided 1 Corinthians 1:10; Luke 11:17. We need each other Romans 12:4; 1 Corinthians 12:12 & 20

    We are truly in the last days. Psalms 2:1-12. God wants everybody to understand The Word of God. Many of you will not believe. It is expected. Many will meet Jesus in the cloud 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-58. See you soon.

    Hello Don. We're not told exactly where Jonah was when he received the Word of the LORD, but we do know that he was originally from Gathhepher ( 2 Kings 14:25). This town is difficult to locate (if you're trying to place it on a modern map), as the name & maybe the town itself has since long gone. But from my old maps, it was located west of the Sea of Galilee (formerly, Sea of Chinnereth). When Canaan was divided amonst the twelve tribes, this town was a part of Zebulun's heritage & later was in the area of Galilee, in Jesus' Days.

  • Casting Lots in the Bible - In Reply - 2 years ago
    The practice of casting lots is mentioned seventy times in the Old Testament and seven times in the New Testament. In spite of the many references to casting lots in the Old Testament, nothing is known about the actual lots themselves. They could have been sticks of various lengths, flat stones like coins, or some kind of dice; but their exact nature is unknown. The closest modern practice to casting lots is likely flipping a coin.

    The practice of casting lots occurs most often in connection with the division of the land under Joshua (Joshua chapters 14-21), a procedure that God instructed the Israelites on several times in the book of Numbers ( Numbers 26:55; 33:54; 34:13; 36:2). God allowed the Israelites to cast lots in order to determine His will for a given situation ( Joshua 18:6-10; 1 Chronicles 24:5,31). Various offices and functions in the temple were also determined by lot ( 1 Chronicles 24:5, 31; 25:8-9; 26:13-14). The sailors on Jonah's ship ( Jonah 1:7) also cast lots to determine who had brought God's wrath upon their ship. The eleven apostles cast lots to determine who would replace Judas ( Acts 1:26). Casting lots eventually became a game people played and made wagers on. This is seen in the Roman soldiers casting lots for Jesus' garments ( Matthew 27:35).

    The New Testament nowhere instructs Christians to use a method similar to casting lots to help with decision-making. Now that we have the completed Word of God, as well as the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide us, there is no reason to be using games of chance to make decisions. The Word, the Spirit, and prayer are sufficient for discerning God's will today-not casting lots, rolling dice, or flipping a coin.

    Mishael: people ought always seek the Lord for answers to problems and decisions. Sometimes, NO answer is the answer. Be sure your question is a Godly one. also, God appointed prophets to speak the answer of the Lord: do this or do that. Today: we pray.

    Brother Ronald.

    Part 4.

    The context and language of Genesis 2:7 clearly rule out any evolutionary processes. This is evident from the fact that: (1) man is alone; (2) God breathes into his nostrils the "breath of life"; and (3) he is formed from the dust of the ground.

    Because Adam cannot find a helper (zer) who corresponds (knegd) to him from among the animals ( Genesis 2:20), the LORD God puts him into a deep sleep (cf. Jonah 1:5-6) and makes (bn) a woman, who corresponds to him, from his "rib" ( Genesis 2:18). The verb bn depicts the LORD God as "building" Eve out of the "rib" or side of Adam ( Genesis 2:22). It is used elsewhere in Genesis for the physical building of a city and a tower ( Genesis 4:17, 11:4; cf. Amos 9:6). The word rib (l) complements the word built, as it appears numerous times in the building of the tabernacle ( Exodus 25:12, 26:20, 27:7, 30:4, 36:31-32, 37:3, 38:7). This is a beautiful picture of how the LORD God constructed the first woman. The term built also compliments the craftsman's term fashion used for the creation of Adam ( Genesis 2:7), as the LORD God is now working with hard material and not soft dust. Eve, unlike Adam, was not created from the ground, but her source comes from a "living creature." There is no way to harmonize Genesis 2:22 with theistic evolution: it is describing supernatural creation!

    Hi Debra,

    I was just reading about this last night. Oannes was the name of the pagan god of freshwater, originated as Enki in Sumer at the time shortly after the flood.
  • Debra on Jonah 1 - 2 years ago
    Berossus gave account in ancient greek about a half fish half man named Oannes that taught the Babylonians about language math writing building growing food. It makes sense when they heard that Jonah had been vomited out of a fish and gave them warning that they should change their ways or die they were ready to head the advice. The fish was God's plan all along.

    Dear Eric , I'm happy to read your post , none of us are ever out of God's sight for one second , that is a truth that sometimes makes me ashamed of myself because I know that God sees all my sinfullness but mostly that's a truth that comforts me enormously . I was brought up I wouldn't say poor but there wasn't extra cash for any luxuries and my parents were the kind of people who probably shouldn't have had children . Everything , absolutely every good thing you have , your food your clothes your shelter the good people in your life are blessings and gifts from God . He sustains you , physically mentally emotionally . I think you are a young man , I'm in my mid fifties , as you get older and look back on your life and the different ways it could have gone , the choices you made , the paths you didn't take you will truly know that : All things work together for good to them that love God . Stick with Him Eric , He will never steer you wrong .

    I was shocked Jonah disobey God and flee from him, but God intervenes from being fled.
  • Leo Alifi on Jonah 1 - 2 years ago
    Interesting how recently Isis were doing their worst in the same wicked land of Niniva .

    Also type of Jesus , who was not afraid of the tempest. Jesus was also sleeping during the storm and the sailors were afraid, waking up Jesus to ask him the same question " don't you care that we perish "?

    Jesus wasn't worried because he was able to break up the storm with a single command. Jonah only had to obey his God, and finish the job that was set before him.

    It is better to obey the Lord your God from the start.

    In thee oh Lord do I put my trust, let me never be afraid. The Lord is our rock and our fortress. We put our trust in thee.

    Hi Sacha,

    That last sentence I wrote was just to put it out there. I know you did not say anything about that. It was for someone else who said "God doesn't have hands". I apologize that it came out like that.

    Also me stating that I didn't want to "argue" about this topic anymore was not that you and I are arguing. You seem kind in your posts and why I wanted to reply to you.

    About Abraham offering up his son to be a kind of parallel to the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ I understand. As of coarse it is not exactly the same but numerous parallels. As with others previously someone was interested in parallels to Jesus Christ being dead three days. Some parallels are with Abraham Genesis 22:4, Jonah being in the whales belly Jonah 1:17, Israel being raised on the third day Hosea 6:1-2, David not eat/drink for 3 days & nights (1 Samual 30:12.

    The Holy Bible is the living Word of God. There are many, many, things deeper that we can plainly see. Although all we need is right in front of us.

    So to reply to the other post you made. About not believing in the devil, not believing in "hell", or you not believing any of us are going to Heaven. As I have made this statement to another on this page. The things I have experienced, in less than two years, most people of this world would not believe. Because they are not of this physical world.

    I don't want to get into a discussion about those things you stated as they are just your beliefs. I will not waste my energy going back and forth with anyone on those things. The thing that saddens me the most is you stating "you don't think any of us are going to Heaven". How can you state something like that? So you do not believe the Scriptures and the teachings therein? So it seems?

    All I can say is pray to Jesus Christ to set you free and lead you to the truth. Pour your heart out to Him.

    Thank you for your time and please do not take anything I wrote as harsh. It was only meant to try and help.

    God Bless.
  • Richard in Christ - In Reply on Romans 5 - 3 years ago

    Really the question I have is how do you know the original disciples/apostles of Jesus Christ didn't teach that the Lord "died" for our sins? As I myself got a little confused, with Paul's trip to Jerusalem between Acts and Galatians, because the Scriptures doesn't always have every single detail.

    We can say that Paul met with Peter and James around 36 AD. I'm sure they had an amazing time talking about all types of things relating to the Lord and the Gospel. In 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 Paul states "according to the Scriptures". Which are probably Isaiah 53 and Jonah 1:17. Which Jesus states in Matthew 12:40 that He shall be three days and nights in the heart of the earth. Which His original disciples/apostles experienced this first hand. Which Paul did not. In 1 Peter 2:24 it states how Jesus died for our sins. Which was maybe written around the early 60's AD? Around the same time as Acts was written? So one epistle, not Paul's writing, has it the other doesn't.

    Along with Paul meeting with the other apostles less than a decade after the death of Jesus. Then the second time around 50 AD before all written Gospels. I can't see Paul knowing more or preaching more than the other apostles, who lived with the Lord, in that Jesus Christ "died" for our sins.

    As I would say that there are many details but One Gospel.

    God Bless.
  • Richard in Christ - In Reply on Psalms 19 - 3 years ago
    Hello brother Skip,

    As your post interested me to look into this. There seems to be no exact Scripture, in the OT, of the Messiah rising on the third day. What I found was there being three parallels in the OT Jesus may have been referring to.

    The First being a parallel to Abraham being commanded to sacrifice his "only" son Isaac. When hearing this his son became dead to him. Then on the third day when he was about to offer him in sacrifice the angel of the Lord stopped him. Then Isaac being alive to him again. Genesis 22:1-12

    Then next being a parallel to Jonah being three days, and nights, in the whales belly. Jonah 1:17. Showing that he was not living, but had died, is Jonah crying "out of the belly of hell or "sheol"I cried". Then Jonah 2:20 where the fish spit him up and being revived, or alive, after three days.

    The last is a parallel to Israel being raised on the third day. Hosea 6:1-2.

    As you may know all of these things already as you are a very wise man in Scripture. I just thought to look into and post what I found to you.

    Hope that may help some. God Bless you brother.

    "To divination and casting of lots, they pay attention beyond any other people. Their method of casting lots is a simple one: they cut a branch from a fruit-bearing tree and divide it into small pieces which they mark with certain distinctive signs and scatter at random onto a white cloth. Then, the priest of the community if the lots are consulted publicly, or the father of the family if it is done privately, after invoking the gods and with eyes raised to heaven, picks up three pieces, one at a time, and interprets them according to the signs previously marked upon them.

    Divination is OCCULT and carries a death sentence.

    Not sure but I think it goes like this: 10 sticks with only one differant color than the others, hold all in one hand with the colored stick in the middle, let go and the colored stick points to the person in a circle. He is chosen for what purpose, I dont know. for something they agreed to , I would guess.

  • Greg - In Reply on John 19 - 3 years ago
    Mark Matthews, Day Christ Died.

    Right on! Just as Johah said; "Three days AND three nights" Jonah 1:17.

    Jesus died on what we call Wednesday just before sundown.

    Wednesday sundown to Thursday sundown = 1 day (first night and day in the tomb)

    Thursday sundown to Friday sundown = 1 day (second night and day in the tomb)

    Friday sundown to Saturday sundown = 1 day (third night and day in the tomb)

    Mary came to the sepulchre at daybreak Sunday.

    Look at Matthew 12:40.

    Jesus rose at some time between Saturday sundown and Sunday morning.

    The "high day" of John 19:31 was the first day of the feast (Passover), and is considered a high holy Sabbath day.

    The first day of the Feast was a Thursday (15th day of Nisan- April 3/4). The 15th day of Nisan commenced at sunset on what we would still call the 14th.

    Jesus was crucified on the 14th, the "preparation day" ( John 19:31), and by law the crucified bodies should not remain on the cross on a Sabbath day. Jesus was put in the tomb before sunset on Wednesday the 14th.

    The "first day of the week" ( Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:1-2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1-), the day of the Resurrection, was from our Saturday sunset to Sunday sunset.

    Jesus was to be the Lamb slain, and His crucifixion took place on the "preparation day" ( John 19:14) when all lambs were slaughtered for the great Passover Feast the NEXT day.

    The Last Supper DID NOT take place on the day of Passover, look at Matthew 27:62, Mark 15:42, Luke 23:54, John 19:14, John 19:31-42.

    The "third day" of Matthew 16:21 is not the third day of the great Feast, but the third day of our Lord and Savior being in the tomb.

  • Chris - In Reply on Jonah 1 - 4 years ago
    Patricia, "the great fish" that God prepared to swallow up & accommodate Jonah would most likely be a mammal (like a whale, having no gills but lungs to breathe). So it is conjecture on my part, to think that whenever this fish came up for air, we have Jonah also taking in the oxygen simultaneously. Now, since a whale doesn't come up for air that often, one would think that there might have been sufficient oxygen in the fish's body to keep Jonah alive until the next inhalation.

    And yes, God had a great part in keeping his rebellious prophet alive in the fish, if for nothing more, than sustain him without food & water & to comfort him in his extraordinary surroundings.
