Sermons about Israel
Jonah was a prophet who forgot God's heart for the nations. He forgot that Israel was to be a holy priesthood so that the nations would be attracted to God. Israel was rescued for the world. Jonah also ran from the Lord because the Assyrians had terrorized Israel with incursions. The irony is that is that he is running from God as a prophet. The other irony is that the pagans care more for him than he does for Nineveh. They cry out to God while he sleeps. Who fears the Lord more? Jonah or the pagan sailors? Yet God is a big God who redirects him to his big task with a big fish. What is your assignment from the Lord? Are you being obedient? Will you redirect your self towards the Assignment or does the Lord need to get your attention through trials?
God's true children are identified by their faith in Him

The last three chapters of Zechariah prophesy Israel's Finest Hour. Listen and learn a powerful truth about the deity of Christ.
We cannot hide from God because he knows everything there is to know about us, every deed, every action, every thought. This is bad news for Israel and for us. We see in this passage the ugly reality of sin and judgement and what happens when we ignore God and live life our own way. We see the dangers in being comfortable with things that are familiar to us and to the sins of this world. But we learn in Romans 8 that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus; we don't need to try and handle it all on our own as Jesus has dealt with sin and eternity.
God wants us to trust fully on Him. Israel was trusting in their own strength instead of God and God showed them that it was a bad idea. We have a choice of which path to take and God in his mercy allows us to choose but we live with the consequences. David and Israel faced the consequences for their choice and we too face the consequences of our choices.
What happens when God takes over? Listen and learn how Israel was (and shall be) blessed when God fired the false shepherds of Israel and takes over as the Chief Shepherd of His flock. Be encouraged as you discover the great truth: If God be for us, who can be against us!
