Jonah 1 The Lord’s commands are clear—He tells believers when to act, where
to go, and what to do. He also provides the means for following His
directions. The prophet Jonah was told to leave immediately for a
certain city and cry out this warning: “Yet forty days and Nineveh will
be overthrown” (Jonah 3:4). Instead, Jonah did something foolish (and altogether human). He ran.
