JONAH SERMON OUTLINES

I do believe the story of Jonah and the whale is a real story. I believe it actually happened, but also believe there is some deep truths, spiritual principles that God wants us to get from the Book, and so I don't think that the whale is the primary picture of what God wants us to get from the Book...

Jonah was a prophet to the nation of Israel; but in this account, God had commanded him to go and preach to the Assyrians in the city of Nineveh. According to (4:11), there were 120,000 people who lived in this city. Nineveh was a city filled with violence, witchcraft, immorality, and sin of every kind...

Your most important enterprise as a Christian is to find and to follow the will of God. Romans 2:2 says that we are "to prove what is that good and acceptable will of God." It is one thing not to know the will of God and to miss it. It is an altogether different thing to know the will of God and refuse it...

Fish College! Now how did Jonah get there and what did he learn? God spoke to Jonah and gave him a work to do! ''Cry out against the wickedness of Nineveh, that great city whose sin has risen up like a foul order before God.'' On the map of Jonah's life that showed his direction, his purpose, his call, there were only two cities...

Jonah had four periods in his life, and each period is represented in each chapter. There are four chapters in Jonah.

God doesn't make mistakes. He led us to the study of Jonah and now the story of Christ's resurrection dovetails perfectly with our concluding message on Jonah. A good rule for Bible interpretation is to open the Bible and make a beeline to Jesus. Jesus and Jonah are inextricably linked...

GOD CARES! You probably remember the "Miracle on the Hudson." On Jan. 15, 2009¬, U.S. Airways Flight 1549 began a routine journey that ended as anything but. Shortly after taking off from New York's LaGuardia Airport, the Airbus A320, which held 155 people, lost power to both engines after they were struck by birds...

Campbell Morgan said that people were so taken up with the "great fish" of Jonah that they had overlooked Jonah's "great God." The amazing thing about this great God is that He was prepared to use such a strange individual...

The story of the Book of Jonah opens back in the days of Jeroboam, the king Israel from 790 to 750 B.C. From the days of his grandfather Jehu, Israel had been repeatedly plundered by the warring of Syrians with their capital, Nineveh. But Jeroboam was credited with re-establishing the boundaries of Israel from the Haymath to the Dead Sea...

Jonah: What Ticks You Off? (13 of 20) by Roger Thomas
Some of our pet peeves are totally understandable. Particularly considerate, well-mannered folk can be justifiably bothered by chronically late people. You know who I mean--those lazy, inconsiderate people who couldn't care less about schedules and appointments, who apparently...
