Learn of the repentance God is asking all mankind to undertake.
By decree of the king and his nobles, no man or beast, no cattle or sheep, shall taste anything; they shall not eat, nor shall they drink water. Man and beast alike must be covered with sackcloth and call loudly to God; they all must turn from their evil way and from the violence of their hands. Who knows? God may again repent and turn from his blazing wrath, so that we will not perish. Jonah 3:7-9
While still more people gathered in the crowd, he said to them, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it, except the sign of Jonah. Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.” Luke 11:29-30
Jonah 3:1-10, Psalm 51 & Luke 11:29-32
We are gathered today to learn of the repentance God is asking all mankind to undertake continually by the Blood of His Son the Christ engaging the only One Who can show us the Way to Heaven by our faith, hope and love of living His charity. You would think that the billions of people who believe and trust in Jesus Christ would be sign enough for the non-believers of the world but we live in a point in history that is overcome with excess denying the Truth in Christ controlling the flash, flair and feebleness of fantasy, i.e.; movies, media and means.
Oh, I know there are more things in the world stealing our attention but movies begin my list as the beauty of fantasy in the privacy of your own home. Ah, if but to become a Movie Star, right? We crave the attention of excess in illusion to deny God’s Truth blinding our desire to know faith, live in hope and love only ourselves. Our minds are cluttered with media outlets reporting on everything from aliens in the sky to killing fields because of Name of Christ.
They seem to deny anything that is Truth obliging us in make-believe corrupting the longing for God by the means created in filth. Many believe as I that this can be overcome in petition, pleas and prayer just as Jesus reminds us He is the One and Only Sign of Redemption God has provided the world to embrace. Are you calling out loudly to God in repentance? What is your sackcloth of fasting to reflect? “Who knows? God may again repent and turn from his blazing wrath, so that we will not perish.” Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we call out to You loudly in our sackcloth of fasting in repentance. Praying for Team Carolina Emmaus #2. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Constant prayers for Greg Bishop. I’m praying for my prayer partner Marco. LORD, show us how to be forgiving guiding us to charity’s soul of You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Something greater than Jonah in Christ to Rehearse– Luke 11:29-32
Jesus spoke to the crowd
Evil generation always loud
Seeking a sign to pout
None given to a louse
Find the true sign in Jonah
Spit from a whales mouth anointed
Describing to the Ninevites judgment
Of God creating wrath appointed
As Jonah was the sign to them
The Son of Man is the sign to win
Eternal Life in Heaven free from sin
The queen of the south sent to condemn
Coming from the ends of the earth
Hearing the wisdom of Solomon’s worth
At judgment Nineveh’s men will rise from the dirt
Because the preaching of repentance to nurse
Something greater than Jonah in Christ to Rehearse
