|Why Have You Done This?|
|Jonah 1:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Why did Jonah want to disobey God? It wasn't that he just wanted to rebel against God. He tried to get away from the presence of God. Our human flesh does not want to have anything to do with God. Have you ever looked in the mirror of self and wondered why you did a certain something? Why did Eve go out and do what God plainly told her the one thing not to do? Because of Adam and Eve we were cursed to die and suffer. Now we are not talking about the lost, we talk about the ones that are saved and know better. We could go down all of the scripture looking at all the followers of God and see where they made a choice to go against God. The reason that the saved can't keep themselves is because we are all sinners, we live in a sinful body. One can't sow a seed in the flesh and expect it to grow spiritual fruit. Even a farmer knows that he can't plant an apple seed expecting to grow an orange. Having a thought is not the sin, it's when the thought is acted upon is when sin is conceived. What's so appealing to the comfort of our bed, the softness of our pillows that causes us to not come to church on Sunday mornings? Every day Christians are making the choice to do what they want to do instead of turning their life back to God. Just as God prepared a fish for Jonah He will prepare something in the Christians life to turn them back. There is a time coming in a backslid Christians life that God will either turn you around or take you out. You're either running from God because you're lost or because you're backslid. If you keep going back to the sins of this world and can't seem to avoid those things that you're probably lost. Once you've been born a again you will not want to do those things because you're a changed person. Just as any good and loving parent will do God will also chasten His children when they do wrong. He does this because He loves His children and wants them to behave.|

|Get "Jonah" Out Of The Boat|
|Jonah 1:15-16 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
There's not one person that's not been tempted. A lot of times we like to give credit to the devil, "the devil made me do it". We like to blame not doing something that God told us to do on ignorance.
Sin is willing to pay whatever price to get in your life. John 10:10, sin is willing to and so will you. Are you willing to make the payment as well? Sin is just pleasurable for just a season. Our season take of a quarter of the year, the rest is another. This means that the rest of the sin payment is three quarters longer.
Sin is just a downward spiral. Sin will pull you down further and further.
Sin will always pull you away from God. There's a wedge, a distance between you and God. You may have created some distance but God ALWAYS knows what you're doing and watching. God isn't going anywhere so if there is distance, you've created it.
Sin will cause destruction. You might bend for a little while but sin will begin to tear and destroy your life. Homes, families, lives, churches have all been destroyed because of sin.
Sin will get rid of the Godly things. The bible will go, the studying, the praying, holiness, righteousness, church attendance, kindness, tender hearted, forgiveness to others, these are all things that will be cast out if you keep the sin in your life.
Sin will sit back and laugh at you when you're fighting for everything you've got. It will run off and leave you deserted.
Sin will get so great that you won't be able to get rid of it. You must give the sin to God and He will rid it for you.
Romans 6:23, death is the payment for sin. We play with sin like a live grenade.

|Sin, the Separator|
|Jonah 1:1-2:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Sin will take you further than you ever wanted to go before you'll realize it. Jonah was told to spread Gods word but he refused to. Just in our own churches, many feel that it's only the pastors job to spread His word. Plain and simple we just don't want God to show up and show off. We are afraid of what God might do. We should all be more like the men in the upper room, expecting God to show up and do wonderful things!
One can try to hide from God but He always knows where you are and what you thinking. If your a saved person then you will answer for your sinful actions. God will get your attention in some way, whatever it takes. If you're a Christian and make he choice to live a sinful life, you will run away from God. Once you're on the run it will feel as if you're living out Hell on earth.

|Jonah 4:1-11 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|God will take us thru things that will break our pride. Things that break our pride of thinking that we know more than God. Jonah thought he knew better than God even after the thousands repented. Jonah got mad at God when He showed mercy. God had already showed His mercy towards Jonah. We are the same at times when we look at others and think that another doesn't deserve His mercy. Jonah tried to watch what was going to take place after he preached to Ninevah and God took care of him and protected him from the heat. In his prideful arrogance he forgot about what took place and felt that the city should have been destroyed. How often do we go thru troubles and trials of our own making because we won't soften our hearts and do what God has said? Don't let yourself get in the way of Gods mercies. Repent of your sins. Turn away from your sins. How many times do you come to church mad at another person thinking they shouldn't have Gods mercy? All along knowing we NEVER deserved Gods mercies ourself.|

|At the End of Your Rope|
|Jonah 2:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When a man goes far enough from God, it takes desperate measures to go back. There are many in this world that they know that they've been saved but they've turned away from God. Even though those have turned away, God NEVER let's them go. God knows how to make you pray. To some that turn away, it takes the worst punishment for them to turn back to God. Man changes all the time but god has never changed. Not one personal can look upon another and judge them to say that they are being punished due to their backslid life. God will never give up on you if you are one of His. God was not joking around and laughing about it when He put His ONLY son on the cross and turn ed His back on Him to allow Him to die. God is not out to punish people. God just wants us to obey. All that one has to do is to confess their sins and turn back towards Him. Do you think God would take you home if you are behaving badly enough?|
