Abraham, Moses, Jeremiah, and Paul; all shared a common trait that in their day was seldom seen amongst their contemporaries. Each of these men knew the mercy of God in their generation and as such were intercessors! Would to God that such men would resurface in the day in which we live. I am shocked and grieved at the type of remarks I hear being made by professing born-again believers who supposedly belong to the remnant stable when it comes to the talk of revival. Nothing is sure to get their fangs showing than when one speaks of revival and awakening!! Ah! They say...that’s nonsense! Great Britain has out-sinned its day of mercy! In the days of Whitfield and Wesley, the sins of Great Britain were grave and shocking; yet, God saw fit to bring a national awakening to this nation. Oh, that God would do it again!
In this sermon, we behold the mercy of God toward a wicked city called Nineveh and the hot displeasure of a prophet by the name Jonah who rather than see God extend mercy, would rather Him have judged that city. May God deal with our hearts and give us hearts like unto His, full of compassion and mercy!
