"Have we also misunderstood the plan of God's, - as Jonah he did ???"

Dk, 10.12. 2o1o, - 'Doves'
Have we misunderstood the plan of God's, sitting on our Mountain or in our Ivory-Tower,s, only waiting for God's destruction of million's of people around us, - but saving us ???
Have we forgot all about to be saved, and set free only because of Jesus painful sacrifice on Golgatha ? forgot it so we cant even think of mercy for others ??? - if this is the real actuel situation of our's, - it's terrible - time to wake up turn around and repent our selfishness, asking forgivness and for help.
Nineveh was a wicked town, doing realy evil things to each enemies, or those of another kind, and they hated Israel. So the reaction from Jonah is understandable "FOR US" - but God's way is another. He knew Jonah would run away in the same time he got the order to go to Nineveh and bring the message about judgement from God.
So the Almeighty used that fact, that Nineveh believed in a "fishgod oannes" so He let a fish swallow Jonah - and first after three days Jonah was released. - I believe in Jonah's skin-color was totaly BLUE, because of that litle oxygen he could breathe in the womb of the fish, - and blue was the color of Nineveh's !
So when that 'BLUE MAN' go through the Town of Nineveh, thundering the warnings from the Almeighty God, they go totaly in chock, so
panic-stricken that the king left his throne, sat on the street in the dust, eating or drinking nothing, giving order to the people to follow him, and ask forgivness, perhaps God will listen and forgive. - and that was exactly what the Almeighty He gave.
If God could do it then, He can do it today again, - if we leave our "Mountain-Plateau" - repent for our Heartless Behaviour and pray for the Almeighty God's intervention with a "Great Wake Up Call" - totaly managed by the Holy Spirit - no more "Mans-Work" - only the Holy Spirit's way, He know exactly how to do it, all what He do is brilliant, He is Simply Wonderful - Praise the Lord !
So what am I saying: are we looking for the wrong event ? and forget the result of the "JONAH-SIGN" ??? - God's direct intervention for to save so much of His creation as possible, - given answer to the cry from the creation in Romans 8: 19-23.v. - a reveal of the "Children of God - the Brethren of Jesus" - Romans 8: 28-33.v. - it could happen in a "Flash" - perhaps the same way as with Paul in 2.Corinthian 12: 1-6.v. because of 2. Corinthian 5: 1-5.v.
But also remember the way Saul become Paul, - Jesus meet him in a "Bright Light - like a 'Flash from Heaven"  when Saul was on his way to Damascus. - and it changed Saul to Paul for ever, - Praise the Lord.
DONT SAY: its only for the jews, - "JESUS IS THE LION OF JUDAH, SO IF WE BELONG TO HIM, WHO ARE WE THEN" ??? - it's our
time to finish the work of the church, and give place for Israel to take totaly over, Romans 11:25-29.v. - and may our Great God protect and take care of them all !
Im totaly sure the Almeighty have it all under control, now it's our time to come in control, and in agreement with God, - Isaiah 55: 6-13.v.  
a taken away and changed in a "flash" - could be the thing close to happen for a "short while" - followed soon by the real rapture !
Have a blessed weekend, In the Love from Jesus Christ our Lord and Love,

Jonah 4: 1-11.v.
4:1 And it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was angry.

4:2 And he prayed unto Jehovah, and said, Ah, Jehovah, was not this my saying when I was yet in my country? Therefore I was minded to flee at first unto Tarshish; for I knew that thou art a gracious łGod, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great loving-kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.

4:3 And now, Jehovah, take, I beseech thee, my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.

4:4 And Jehovah said, Doest thou well to be angry?

4:5 And Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shade, till he might see what would become of the city.

4:6 And Jehovah Elohim prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shade over his head, to deliver him from his trouble. And Jonah was exceeding glad because of the gourd.

4:7 But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd, that it withered.

4:8 And it came to pass, when the sun arose, that God prepared a sultry east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, so that he fainted; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.

4:9 And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, unto death.

4:10 And Jehovah said, Thou hast pity on the gourd, for which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night:

4:11 and I, should not I have pity on Nineveh, the great city, wherein are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?
