Jonah ran away. Couldn't face offering those he deemed wholly unworthy a merciful reprieve. Then he died and rose again. A giant fish. Symbol or most remarkable occurrence, who knows, and how far should we care? God knows. And Jonah did/does.
We're here to run to wherever our Nineveh is. A place of compassion.. . .
More breaks in proceedings. My own fault, which impacts via unseen on to others and now facing kick-back. God is very real and determined that we who seek forth are holy ones through and through. Was not -- so, get the cost.
How it goes is this: Unless we are praying aright and needing to be specific times, the enemy tears . . .

Lenin's 'best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves'. Never been more crucial and destructive than among so-called 'faith teaching'. The antidote to the only true threat to evil.
