Jonah became angry

Jonah “Became Angry.”

  • The people of Nineveh repented, so God “relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them.”

  • This “displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he became angry,” Jonah 4:1.

    • Jonah had preached the truth to the Ninevites, but not “in love,” Eph. 4:15!

  • In Contrast to Abraham who pleaded with God to save Sodom, Gen. 18-23-32


God appealed to jonah

God Appealed to Jonah

  • “Is it right for you to be angry,” 4:2-4?

  • Jonah stated why he had “fled;” he believed a loving God would spare a penitent people! 4:2; cf. Exodus 34:6-7.

  • After crying out to God because of His “affliction,” 2:2; he now begs God “to take my life from me,” Jonah 4:3!

  • God asked, “Is it right for you to be angry,” Jonah 4:4.


Jonah made a shelter 4 5

Jonah made a Shelter, 4:5

  • “So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city. There he made himself a shelter and sat under it, till he might see what would become of the city,” Jonah 4:5.

  • Jonah made a “shelter” for himself, but was “angry” because God had not destroyed Nineveh!

God’s Preparations

“The Lord God prepared a plant…,” 4:6

-- Jonah was grateful for the plant.

“God prepared a worm…” 4:7.

-- The worm damaged the plant

“God prepared a vehement east wind, 4:8

-- The sun beat upon Jonah’s head, and

he wanted to die, 8.

-- East Wind associated with adversity.


God tried to reason with jonah 4 9 11

God tried to Reason with Jonah, 4:9-11.

  • For the second time God asked “is it right for you to be angry,” Jonah 4:4,9.

    • Jonah angry that Ninevehwas spared, and angry that his plant was not spared!

  • God stressed that People are more Important than Plants! Jonah 4:10-11.

    • God especially shows concern for infants, Jonah 4:11; cf. Matt. 19:13-13. He also has concern for animals. Deut. 25:4.


Lessons to be learned from this chapter

Lessons to be Learnedfrom this Chapter

  • God works behind the Scenes in ways man cannot Comprehend. Cf. Daniel 4:25; Jonah 1:4,17; 4:6-8.

  • The Gist of this chapter (and book) is not the size of the fish, but the magnitude of God’s Pity!

  • It is possible for God’s people to have misplaced Priorities.


Lessons to be learned continued

Lessons to be Learned – Continued

  • Sometimes it is not “right to be angry,” Jonah 4:1,4,9.

  • Jonah was a lot like the elder brother of Luke 15:25-32.

  • God has the last word, Jonah 4:10-11!

    • The last words in this book were the words of God.

    • The first words in this book were the words of God, Jonah 1:1-2.


Conclusion

Conclusion:

  • Because God is the kind of God Jonah described in 4:2, He sent Jonah to preach to Nineveh, and because He is such a God he spared Nineveh when the people repented of their evil works.

  • Because God is the kind of God Jonah described He sent Jesus to die for our sins!

  • If it was imperative that The people of Nineveh obey Jonah’s instructions, it even more so that weobey Jesus!
