Christian Motivation - HIDDEN BIBLE SECRETS: 3 Times Prayers and Fasting Moved God.
In this video, We will share some biblical examples from the Bible of how fasting has affected the destiny of cities, and empires.
Saving the City Of Nineveh
Our first example comes from the book of Jonah.
God called Jonah, who was an Israelite prophet, to go to Nineveh,
Now, Nineveh was a Gentile habitation.
Jonah refused and tried to run away from God Almighty,
however, God punished him severely. What followed is recorded in the third chapter of Jonah:
1Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time:
"Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you." Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh Now Nineveh was a very important city —a visit required three days [to go all through it. On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: "Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned."
Jonah's message was important but brief, The response of the Ninevites was remarkable:
When the King heard, he took a very drastic decision.
The proclamation that the king issued was even more remarkable. It goes like this: "By decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let any man or beast, herd or flock, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink."
Jonah 3:7 NIV
