Now the Word of the Lord came to Jonah the Son of Amittai saying, Arise go to Ninevah, that great city, and cry out against it for their wickedness has come up before me. … but Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.. (Jonah1:1,2)

What are you running from that God calls “great?” (1:2)
What makes you run, what causes you to head the opposite way? (1:3)
What city is worshipping “worthless idols,” fake, false, man-made gods (2:8).
What misery are you experiencing through disobedience (4:3).

Verse ten of chapter three tells us that God relented from the disaster he would have brought upon them, yes disaster. Before a city looses its reputation and prosperity, its first loses its Prophet and its voice. Before economic recovery there must be a rise to Godliness, a prophet must go and speak God’s word, and reveal that salvation (deliverance, prosperity, recovery) is of the Lord (2:9). Economic downturn needs the prophet to return. Part of the cities recovery, is simply this, YOU got to go!

Where is Jonah?
