Nineveh Repented

Nineveh repented and was saved, although years later, the same city returned to its vomit and became a target of God’s judgment, influenced by the weakness of their leaders, Nineveh was not spared. The Prophet Nahum prophesied against its immorality and violence when he took a tour of the city and found it to be wicked, and a blood city. The door was closed to that city, which years earlier had been rescued from destruction through repentance. The Bible tells us that God is compassionate, gracious and abundant in loving-kindness; He will not keep His anger forever (Ps. 103). He is Long-suffering, and desires that no man should perish, but turn to repentance (Peter 3:9). It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not; they are renewed every morning; great and abundant is His faithfulness (Lam. 3:22-23). But there is a time appointed when His vengeance will be poured out. A time of reckoning for all who has turned a deaf ear to Him. A time when the clock of His long-suffering will yield to judgment. For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for our sins, but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God] (Heb. 10:26-27). Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion [of Israel] and their provocation and embitterment in the day of testing in the wilderness (3:7-8).

We are living in uncertain and anxious days. A time when freedom is being stripped from us and life smiles not the same way as before. These are days of fake pandemic and masks, as to subject humankind to a new kind of governing, when the ultimate and absolute leader will arise conquering the entire world for himself. Then, the world will no longer be the world we know today. It will be then under the judgment of God, Who for thousands of years has warned mankind to depart from evil, even giving His only Son to pay the penalty for our sins. And it is to this fact that I call on you my friend to turn around; listen to the message of warning, repent and receive salvation through the LORD YAHSHUA, the Messiah of the world. The uncertainty of our time can be devastating and scary, when outside of God’s family. However, you do not have to be fearful and anxious anymore, by giving your life to YAHSHUA, trusting Him for your salvation. Only then, nothing will take hold of your life to destroy you, for the Word of God says, No weapon formed against you will prosper; If God is for us, who can be against us? Repent, my friend, repent of your sins and let the blood of YAHSHUA cleanse you and make you pure.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
