Jonah Preaches and Nineveh Repents - Matthew Postiff

Therefore “today is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2) because a day is coming for every person when God will declare that enough is enough. Years of opportunity to recognize our need of God’s forgiveness will come to an end. But be assured that if you repent, you will find as the Ninevites did that God is compassionate and gracious. He is not a mean deity whatsoever. We are getting closer to the message of Jonah. The book was not written primarily to provide an illustration for Jesus to use about His death and resurrection, although it serves that purpose. It was not written primarily about the Ninevites. It has something to do with Jonah and his understanding of God. The repentance of Nineveh happened in those individuals alive at the time. It did not transfer to future generations. Each generation must do its own repentance.

Our Scripture reading was in Ezekiel 42:1-20.
