Jonah Syndrome-4

Jonah 1:1 “Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,”
Jonah 1:2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.”
Jonah 1:3 “But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.”
…From yesterday…
This is a funny scenario. This woman had been a member of that “church” for years, probably for the eighteen years, although the bible didn’t say categorically. But, at least her pastor should know her story. She was very conspicuous because of her condition. She must have been paying her tithe and giving offering in that “church”.
One day, Jesus stepped into the church and healed her. Guess what? Her pastor jumped up angrily! He said “How dare you get healed during service! No Sunday healings; you should have come during the week” (My version)
Can you imagine that? If he knew healing was possible during the week, why did he not do that several years back? Why not stand with her in fasting and prayers for total restoration on Wednesday or Thursday? The key to her healing was in his hand, but he didn’t use it! That’s a Jonah for you! Not all those sympathising with you really want your condition to be better, BEWARE!
Somebody came to look for you at home to drop some “blessings” for you; he found out you were out, but met your neighbour who told him you have moved from there simply because he saw the gift parcel.
Your boss at work who is on Grade Level 15 was asked to recommend you, a Level 10 officer for a training trip abroad and he refused to attend to the mail till the offer expired! Those are typical examples of Prophet Jonah!
But then, how do we handle such men or such scenarios?
To be continued…
