Transcript of Jonah 1

Into the Deep with the Prophet: Part One
Backsliding: A Theological Reality?
Can a christian experience periods of spiritual dullness and disobedience?
Yes (Heb. 12:6-11; King David, and Peter)
Can a christian live in a perpetual state of rebellion and willful disobedience?
No, this is a sign of a false profession.
Matthew 7:21-23 and 1 John 3:4-10
A backsliding Believer will:
Repent from this sinfulness - 1 John 1:9-10
Not deny the truth of Christ - 1 John 2:18-25
Most likely doubt their salvation - 2 Peter 1:5-11
A lost 'professor' will:
Reveal this lostness by a lack of lasting fruit - Mark 4:16-19
Fail to obey Christ - Matthew 7:16-27
Commonly deny the truth of Christ - 1 John 2:22-23
Who is He?
2 Kings 14:23-25

“23 In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash, king of Judah, Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel, began to reign in Samaria, and he reigned forty-one years. 24 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD. He did not depart from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin. 25 He restored the border of Israel from Lebo-hamath as far as the Sea of the Arabah, according to the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, which he spoke by his servant Jonah the son of Amittai, the prophet, who was from Gath-hepher.”
His Culture
His Occupation
His Current Walk
His Likeness to Us
The Old Testament Prophet
They uniquely hear from and know the Heart of God:

Amos 3:7

“the Lord does nothing without revealing His secrets to the prophets”
The Old Testament Prophet
The Old Testament Prophet
They served as a sort of mediator between the people and God:

Jeremiah 31:33-34
“33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
They stand as communicators of the mission of God:

Hebrews 1:1-3

"1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high"
What is his Problem?
He Disobeys God's Word
He flees God's Presence
