Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Tell Me the Story of Jesus program. This is our Jesus and Jonah Sign Seekers Mystery sharing the Sign of the Prophet Jonah and the 3 days and 3 nights prophecy given to us by Jesus in the Bible explaining that Jonah being in a whale's belly for 3 days and 3 nights was going to be compared His own death where Jesus would endure 3 days and 3 nights in darkness and then be resurrected from the dead. The simply stunning and awe inspiring message found within the sign of the prophet Jonah Bible study on the comparison of Jesus and Jonah and the explanation of the 3 days and 3 nights mystery will bring truth, understanding and peace into your life.
If you arrived to this study by way of the Tell Me the Story of Jesus
program ... You probably feel encouraged to learn more because of
your increased awareness of the Holy Spirit, and that's so exciting!
We will be taking a small field trip before we begin our Jesus and
Jonah study on the Sign of the Prophet Jonah and the 3 days and 3
nights prophecy ...
If you have read about the Holy
Spirit, you may have high expectations that each time you commune
with the Holy Spirit you're supposed to get this intense feeling of
euphoria. Well, that simply isn't the case. We may not have the
administration which requires it like Moses or David or Elijah or
Isaiah or Daniel, so don't start thinking that something is wrong if
the clouds don't part and messages aren't written across the sky when
you invite Him to be with you.
Let me explain it to you this way. You love your spouse more than
anyone else in the world, yet you feel differently if you're sharing
an emotional moment together than when you're putting away the
groceries. That doesn't mean you love them any less or that they love
you any less when they're stocking canned goods in the pantry. In
fact, just knowing they're there is all the comfort you need and it's
not necessary to have fireworks or even candle light dinners every
night of your lives to make sure the other knows of your love for
If you don't feel shivers up and down your spine every time you pray,
that doesn't mean you're not Spiritual. The Holy Spirit knows your
heart. He knows your desire to know Him and to share His company.
He's there, so don't worry.
Now with that in mind, let's go back to our Jesus and Jonah Sign
Seekers quest seeking answers to the Sign of the Prophet Jonah and
the 3 days and 3 nights prophecy story. We pick up where Jesus was
talking to the scribes and pharisees. After Jesus explained again
about how your fruits (words and deeds) come from your heart, they
asked Him to show them a sign (to prove that He was the Son of God).
Here are some sign seekers. Jesus answered ... This evil generation
wants to see a sign, but no sign will be shown to it, except the
sign of prophet Jonas (Jonah). Just like Jonas was in the whale's
belly for 3 days and 3 nights, the Son of man (Jesus) will also be in
the heart of the earth.
Here we find the comparison of Jesus and Jonah and how Jesus gave the
sign seekers a sign to watch for. The Sign of the Prophet Jonah and
the 3 days and 3 nights is to be prophecy of what Jesus would endure
as well. When Judgment Day comes, the people of Nineveh will stand up
and condemn this generation because they repented when Jonas preached
warning to them, (Jonah
3:1-10) and you have one greater than Jonas preaching to you. The
queen of the south will also stand up on judgment day and condemn
this generation because she came from the uttermost parts of the
earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and one greater than Solomon is
The queen of the south is the queen of Sheba. Sheba, also known as
Saba was southern Arabia. The queen heard of the wisdom of Solomon
and she came to Jerusalem to test Solomon because she didn't believe
what she heard about Solomon being the wisest man that will ever
live, but Solomon answered all her questions and she conceded that he
was wiser even than what she had heard (2
The Jesus and Jonah Sign Seekers Mystery is beginning to unravel. The
Sign of the Prophet Jonah and the 3 days and 3 nights prophecy was
simply Jesus telling them that He would die and rise again after 3
days and 3 nights, and even though He is greater than Jonah, the
scribes and Pharisees still won't believe in Him, so Nineveh will be
witnesses against them in the day of judgment. Likewise, they were
testing Him, as the queen of Sheba tested Solomon, and even though He
is greater than Solomon, they won't believe the wisdom that He speaks
Then Jesus went on to say, When the unclean spirit is cast out of a
man, the unclean spirit walks through dry places, looking for rest,
but finding none. (You can study more about evil
spirits which originated in the days of Noah's
ark.) Then the spirit says to itself, I'll go back to my house
(the person) who I came out of, and when he (the unclean spirit)
arrives (returns), he finds it (the person) empty, swept and put in
order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more
wicked than itself and they enter into the person and live there.
Now the person is in worse condition than before. That's how it
will be with this wicked generation.
In other words, when we allow an unclean spirit within us by
partaking of the world and they are removed by our choice to
follow Jesus, the spirit wanders looking for another body to overtake
and eventually comes back to the body he was in. If it is
clean, he can't get in so he goes and gets seven other spirits worse
than himself to help him get into this person. They lure this
soul until they are allowed back in. Now fear not, because we have
choice as to whether the spirit(s) are allowed back in or not. We
will experience the lures but we can just say ... No.
Another Jesus and Jonah Sign Seekers field trip ... At the risk of sounding repetitive, these lures come
in all forms, whether it be television, thoughts, friends whispers,
books, music, drugs, anger, money, etc. An unclean spirit will use any
way it can to gain access to a person so they can feel again.
Aren't you so glad that you have the Holy Spirit to help you? You
can't lock yourself in a closet to escape all the methods that satan
uses to try and win your soul, but you do have the most powerful
weapon in the world, the Holy Spirit. He doesn't contain uranium or
have any kind of atomic, nuclear, biological or chemical
capabilities, but He can sure whip an evil spirit!
The Jesus and Jonah Sign Seekers Mystery is solved - The Sign of the
Prophet Jonah and the 3 days and 3 nights prophecy meant that Jesus
would be in the darkness for 3 days and 3 nights from when he died up
until His Resurrection. This Jesus and Jonah Sign fulfilled
prophecy proves yet again, that Jesus is Lord.
