As you record your impressions, think about how the principles in Jonah and Micah relate to what you have been learning in the scriptures.
Jonah 1: Jonah is sent to call Nineveh to repentance—He flees on a ship, is cast into the sea, and is swallowed by a great fish.
Jonah 2: Jonah prays to the Lord, and the fish vomits him out on dry ground.
Jonah 3: Jonah prophesies the downfall of Nineveh—The people repent, and the city is saved.
Jonah 4: Jonah is displeased with the Lord for His mercy upon the people—The Lord rebukes him.
Micah 1: Micah prophesies the downfall of Samaria and Jerusalem.
Micah 2: The destruction of Israel is lamented—The Lord will gather the remnant of Israel.
Micah 3: Priests who teach for hire and prophets who divine for money bring a curse upon the people.
Micah 4: In the last days, the temple will be built, Israel will gather to it, the millennial era will commence, and the Lord will reign in Zion.
Micah 5: The Messiah will be born in Bethlehem—In the last days, the remnant of Jacob will triumph gloriously over the Gentiles.
Micah 6: In spite of all His goodness to them, the people have not served the Lord in spirit and in truth—They must act righteously, love mercy, and walk humbly before Him.
Micah 7: Though the people of Israel have rebelled, yet in the last days the Lord will have mercy on them—He will have compassion and pardon their iniquities.
