In this symposium of articles, we propose the idea that we can not only pray for God’s will to be done on earth, we can work toward it and even accomplish it! We believe that the power of the plain and open teachings of Jesus can make real changes on the earth and thereby avert any supposed or foretold destruction of our present day system of things.
We call this idea “The Ninevite Possibility” as relayed in the Bible book of Jonah where the repentance of the people of Nineveh turned back their prophesied destruction. These articles posit that our Father is not interested in destruction. His real interest is salvation, as Jesus taught.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
– John 3:16-17
This is a provocative and refreshing perspective. We will develop this topic in the following series of articles.
