Jonah probably the worst and most successful missionary of all time. He was the worst because he literally ran the opposite direction because he despised and hated those he was called to minister unto. In many ways, we can think about Jonah as the “racist prophet,” because he didn’t believe the people of Ninevah (the capital of Assyria) were worthy of salvation. Hosea had already prophesied that Assyria would be the instrument of God’s judgment on Israel – is it any wonder that Jonah wanted to see them destroyed. At the same time, he was the most effective missionary in the Bible. He preached, and the entire city fell to their knees in repentance.

Israel and Edom had a rocky relationship for centuries. You see, Israel comes from the descendants of Jacob, while Edom came from Esau. These brothers, Jacob and Esau, were always at odds with each other, even from birth (Genesis 25:21-28 ). While God did give a blessing to Esau and his descendants (see Genesis 36 & Hebrews 11:20 ), Jacob was the “child of promise” through whom salvation would come. The promise given to Abraham would be fulfilled through Israel, not Edom. Obviously that would cause competition and strife between these neighboring countries. So when Babylon came and destroyed Jerusalem in 586AD, Edom rejoiced. Not only were they thrilled at Israel’s destruction, they joined in the violence and plundered the unprotected villages of Israel.

When I was in college I had a job as a framer. Each morning at daybreak we would be on the site from sunup to sundown. When our team was operating at our best we could put up a house and clean the site in a week. Other subcontractors would come in when our job was done but it was our job to frame the house. One of the key tools of the framer is the chalk-line or plumb-line as it is otherwise called. With this tool we can lay out our floor plans, build our walls and test the “true-ness” of a wall. If a wall is out of plumb or is not straight the whole house can crumble.

How does God get your attention?

All of us are stubborn from one degree to another. It doesn’t take much effort or time to drift.

The Old Testament prophet Joel proclaims most clearly of “the Day of the Lord” which is a warning of disaster in a present and future time if there is no personal and national turning back to God and His covenant ideals.

Scripture: Hosea 6:6 & Hosea 14:9

For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,
and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.

Who is wise? Let them realize these things.
Who is discerning? Let them understand.
The ways of the Lord are right;
the righteous walk in them,
but the rebellious stumble in them.

The priests of the temple had one job… to lead the people into faithful worship of the Living God. On one hand, they were diligent about the rituals and sacrifices; but on the other hand, they literally rejected God-in-flesh and allowed the section for Gentiles to be turned into a marketplace. The Temple was meant to be an intersection between heaven and earth, where people could come and encounter the LORD. Instead it turned into an exclusive center for Jewish patriotism. Jesus was not impressed.
