    At this point we learn Jonah had a reasonable understanding of Jehovah /GOD, but Jonah all do..., to not obey the order issued to Jonah from GOD therefore GOD would intervene in this matter.....

    Someone is lying on the Bible and has no Truth in him!!!! John 37.And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

    The trails of Jonah are a testament to how powerful our GOD is! Turn away from GOD and he will show you your faults. He will lay you bare and knock you low so that when your knees bow unto him you will confess the GLORY that is GOD and hearken unto him. He will be your savings grace by reaching down in the mist of your storm and pulling you onto dry land!
  • Stephen B
    Jehovah of the Old Testament is indeed the Lord Jesus Christ of the New Testament! Darlene is correct.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    The wicked misrepresents itself saying, Jesus didn’t tell Jonah anything it was GOD THE GREAT I AM THAT I AM. Yet the very Scripture here says (But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.) and (Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.)
  • Truth
    Jesus didn’t tell Jonah anything it was GOD THE GREAT I AM THAT I AM SISTER DARLENE. Let’s not misrepresent the scripture that’s why people are so confused today

    He was dead and in hell and God brought him back to life and redeemed him.

    In answer to Jaasiel....Matthew 12:40
    For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
  • Jaasiel
    As I read this I had to realize that all my life I was told that Jonah was swallowed by a whale . But,now as I read this it says "Jonah was swallowed by a great fish" it nevers said he was swallowed by a whale.
  • Henry
    Alway call upon God when passing through afflictions and tribulation, because our God listens and hears our cries.
  • Darlene
    Jonah was told from Jesus to go preach the gospel in one City but he ran from Jesus even tho he could not hide from him . So he rebelled against Jesus and The Lord allowed Jonah to be swallowed up in the belly of the whale (big fish) . For 3-day's
  • Obbie Beal
    GOD had to get Jonah attention again and it was not hard for GOD to it. In 2018 GOD is still having to (2nd time) get the attention of those who HE has give a specific task to perform. WOW! WOW! WOW!
  • Dr. Janet Fashakin
    I believe that Psalm 130 represents Jonah's prayer in the belly of this fish.
  • A disciple
    Jonah repented from inside the fish, and was then vomited out. Whatever he was before he was thrown into the sea; he wasn't anymore! Jonah's calling and anointing came again, and his word was with power! I love the story of Jonah! What a great and bold Prophet! He went to the Capital heathen city and the most terrible people in the world; and the Word of God pronouncing their doom broke them!
  • Rev Franklin Miller
    After Jonah was spit out on dry land after being in the belly of the whale, he might have referred to himself as a really "STINKING PREACHER" that really needed for the Lord to clean him up on the inside as well as the outside so he could be used as a vessel of honor for His honor and glory.

    Verse 9: Jonah was determined to pay his vow no matter how difficult it would be for him.
  • Lucille
    Jonah was disobedience to God clear call put the sinners around him in danger when we disobey the thing God clearly tell us we put unsaved peopl maybe even those we love in danger jus believe that God did
  • Lucille
    Jonah knew what he had done he wanted to see if he could get away with it but God was waiting to meet him at his Arrival you can alway run but you can't hide from your mistake
  • Lucille
    10veser but God was waiting to meet Jonah at his Arrival you can always run but you can't hide from you God and you cannot hide from your mistake
  • Victor
    Just as jonah was in affliction and cried to God for his mercies, in the same way if anyone is going through a difficult situation that seemed like being in hell, look at God's mercies and not the lying vanities that compassed you about, give thanks to God and continue to look at the perfect law of liberty. you will get back to the life of the living and come out of 'hellish situations'
  • Leye Isola
    Within this book we have the deep into understanding of the mission of Christ to descend to hell to preach salvation
  • Tracy Graham
    Jonah proved that hell was not a place of luxury neither is it a personal decision that a person would make on their own. To top it off jonah couldn't get out until God made that decision but thanks to God he has given us the privilege to go to him in prayer. Yet if we go to hell there is nothing God himself can do to change it.
  • Nicole
    This is truly a special passage. Again God's mercy extended. How overwhelming his soul was in torment. Just a few minutes seem unbearable but Jonah was the belly for three days. Think about the soul agony. Jesus was in hell 3 days and nights, separated from his father even as Jonah was cut of from the land of the living.Jesus did that for us, Jonah shed a little light on the souls agony in hell, down in the deep heart of the earth. God's plan of salvation is mercy and grace to spare us from such. He extends it and we must accept it in order to avoid sins consequence. i am quite sure 3 days was a long time, almost loosing hope and despair, but eternity has no end.
  • Daniel for verse 8
    Jonah's prayer is a prophesy of Christ's descent into hell. This verse tells us that those who look to or depend on anyone or anything other than God will forfeit the Grace The gift that is salvation that could b Be theirs.
  • Happie brown
    To my own opinion I think Jonah was trying to tell us that stress is another way God can use to draw us back to him and help us to redefine our priorities! Weather in Happiness or stress stick to God and you will eat the best of Him!
  • Cary 69 for verse 8
    Some think lying vanities was Jonah listening to him going the opposite way then where God told him to Go. That is "LIARLAND ". Like Disney land. Oh! We will have fun. It 'll cost you! Check your billfold. Oh my, I 'm over my limit with God. He caused trouble it affected others. The knew he was the prophet Jonah. Then tossed him over...not a shark thank God or he would have been gone. Even in the whale, his minutes was numbered. Yes, God has everything under control. He couldn 't see....but he could FEEL, SMELL, HEAR BETTER NOW, THINK CLEARER NOW. BUT THE GOURD TREE OF God 's GRACIOUS kindness DIED. AFTER ALL HE STILL WAS DOING GOD 'S WILL OUT OF PROTEST. Finally God had a come to Jesus meeting with him. History records that Nineveh repented. But later rebelled. As Paul Harvey never said. That 's the end of the Story!
  • Nonye for verse 8
    I also think this verse means,we christians should not work according to our sensory perceptions,only then will our needed miracles manifest.For,the devil is liar!and everything he does has always been in opposition to what the word of God says about us.
  • Euchari a
    Jonah 2 thought us when GOD say something to do he will do it no matter your reason and he hears our prayer even though we offend he
  • Barbara Lindsey
    Jonah understands now he can 't hide or run away from Elohim- and can 't kill himself if Elohim wants Him to live! Psalm 139:7-10 He repents and Elohim causes the fish to vomit up Jonah. Obedience is better than a sacrifice!!!
  • Betty for verse 8
    i think it is giving attention to symptoms and circumstances, instead of believing God 's Word alone.
