Counseling the Pouting Prophet

Text: Jonah 4
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: June 21, 2015

Have you ever felt angry and depressed because life seems unfair.  When this happens, with whom are you angry?  Ultimately, if you don’t like the way the world is being run, you are angry with God.  In our final chapter of Jonah, the prophet is angry with God because He spared the city of Nineveh after they repented.  Jonah is so angry that he wants to die.  The irony is that the man who was shown such mercy in chapter two did not want God to show mercy to his enemies.  We can be modern day Jonahs.  We are glad that God has shown grace to us, but we stand in judgment of those around us.  Also, like Jonah, sometimes some of us can be tempted to think that things are so bad that life isn’t worth living.

The LORD is very patient as He counsels the pouting prophet by asking probing questions. Those who seek to counsel angry or depressed people can learn much from how God deals with Jonah.

Please read Jonah 4 in preparation for listening to this sermon.

Revival in Nineveh

Text: Jonah 3:1-10
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: June 14, 2015

It is wonderful to hear about the great revivals of the past.  Acts records how thousands were converted in the early days of the church.  I have enjoyed reading about the Great Awakening in which Whitefield preached to thousands in the open air and about the past revivals in Wales.  Believers were revitalized, thousands were converted, and entire communities were transformed.

Perhaps there is no greater revival in history than that which occurred when Jonah preached to the sinners in Nineveh.  One of the great cities of the world turned from their sin and the LORD turned away His wrath.

Some like to study past revivals in order to learn techniques to be applied in future revivals.

  • What do you think about Jonah’s methodology?  Why did it work?
  • What can we learn about revival from Jonah chapter 3?

Please read Jonah 3 in preparation for listening to this sermon.

The Resurrections of Jonah and Jesus

Text: Luke 11:29-32; Jonah 2:10
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: June 7, 2015

In this sermon we continue our series in Jonah while also going back (for one message) to our series in Luke where Jesus links his work to that of Jonah.  We have already learned that Jonah’s story is our story.  We too have wandered from God Who has been merciful to us.  We also have seen that Jonah’s story is Jesus story. What happened to Jonah happened to Jesus.

In Luke 11 the Jewish leaders demand a sign from Jesus Who responds,  “Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.” (Luke 11:30). The difference is that the Ninevites listened to Jonah while the Jewish leaders refused to listen to Jesus.

Why don’t people today believe in Jesus?  Would a sign convince them?

Why is our faith weak?  Would something miraculous make us stronger?  If not what do we need?

Please read Luke 11:29-32 and Matthew 12:38-42 to prepare for listening to this sermon.
