Fear of God Devotional: The Repentance of a Nation

What bring about the repentance of an entire nation?

Paul Carrington shares an example in this video of how an entire nation repented. Jonah preached to the city of Nineveh. He preached that they must repent. The repentance in the city of Nineveh started from the top down. The king repented. Then, the people repented. God relented from judging the people and did not destroy them.

Today, we see different examples of nations repenting. We see another example of this by studying the ministry of John G. Paton to an unsaved tribe. The tribe came to faith and the people, who used to worship idols, now burned them. A nation must obey the commands of God. 

Psalm 51:10 (NKJV) – “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
