#186 The 2024 Regular Legislative Session in Review Pt. 4

This scripture is at the end of the book of Jonah, after Jonah has repented of running from his assignment, after he was spit up from the belly of the whale and took the Lord’s instruction to Nineveh to prophesy to the people the destruction of their city because of their wickedness. The people heard and responded. They fasted and repented -- turning from their wickedness. They were described as totally wicked, yet they turned. And Jonah was very angry, because he knew the Lord would have compassion on them if they did repent. But he had seen their great wickedness and wanted them to face judgement instead of mercy. This is what the Lord tells Jonah, 

 

”Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?”“

 

 

Doesn’t that seem like exactly where we are right now? I want to see God’s judgement on the wicked. I do. I feel like Jonah in my heart a lot of days -- saying Lord come and judge the wicked. But I was very convicted and encouraged by this passage. It gave me hope for so many people. Because I do believe that a good number of the wicked will repent and are repenting even now. Look how the Lord sees them -- as not knowing their right hand from their left. That’s the same as not knowing if they are a boy or a girl. That’s the same as what we are seeing play out in absolute demonic fashion in our society. Let us be ones who learn from Jonah’s mistake and agree with the Lord saying Lord, turn their hearts. Let us see as many of these wicked and completely lost people repent and come to know You. Return them to their right mind and right identity, and make them whole again.
