Who Can Tell? (Jonah 3:1-10)Pastor Jared Shumate, September 15, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sunday Morning, September 15th, 2019 - Who Can Tell? - Pastor Jared Shumate
Jonah stood before King Nebuchadnezzar and preached an eight word sermon; "Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown." That's all it took for the people of Nineveh to repent and believe. The king asked Jonah, who can tell what God could do if the people turn away from their wicked ways.
What could God do in Knoxville if we all proclaim Jesus as Savior, change our priorities and focus, and submit themselves to prayer? God used Jonah's eight word sermon to change a nation. Just imagine what God could do in our city, state, and even our country if Christians put our differences aside and come together for His Kingdom!?
Who can tell...

1And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, 2Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. 3So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. 4And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. 5So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. 6For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. 7And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: 8But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. 9Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not? 10And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. (KJV)
