"Nineveh is pillaged, plundered, stripped!
Hearts melt, knees give way,
bodies tremble, every face grows pale.
'I am against you',
declares the Lord Almighty.
'I will burn up your chariots in smoke,
and the sword will devour your young lions,
I will leave you no prey on the earth.
The voices of your messengers
will no longer be heard."
The Point of NO Return
God had given the people of Nineveh
an opportunity to repent, (through Jonah)
and they did!
they went back to their wicked ways
and now would have to suffer the consequences.
There is a point for people, cities, and nations
after which there is no turning back.
Nineveh had passed that point!
Do you see the urgency in repentance?
