Jonah 4:5-11 You have to understand that between the already of your conversion and the not yet of your home going – life is war. Understanding that war will tell you a lot about yourself and tell you a lot about what God is doing in your life.
Are you running from God? Jonah tried. His story is a short, bizarre, powerful tale, dense in Biblical theology. We don’t learn a lot about the prophet Jonah or hear any prophecy from him, but every element of a biblical worldview is embedded in these 48 verses.
