A Call Back To God Through National
Wikipedia: Nineveh was the flourishing capital of the Assyrian empire (2 Kings 19:36): and ostensibly was the home of King Sennacherib , King of Assyria, during the Biblical reign of King Hezekiah and the prophetic career of Isaiah. According to scripture, Nineveh was also the place where Sennacherib died at the hands of his two sons, who then fled to the land of `rrt Uartu. (Isa. 37:37-38). The book of the prophet Nahum is almost exclusively taken up with prophetic denunciations against this city. Its ruin and utter desolation are foretold (Nahum 1:14; 3:19, etc.). Its end was strange, sudden, tragic. (Nahum 2:6-11). According to the Bible, it was God's doing, his judgment on Assyria's pride (Jonah Nah). In fulfillment of prophecy, God made "an utter end of the place". It became a "desolation". Zephennia also (2:13-15) predicts its destruction along with the fall of the empire of which it was the capital. Nineveh is also the setting in the Book of Tobit.
Nineveh's repentance and salvation from evil is noted in the Gospel of Matthew, and the Luke. To this day, oriental churches of the Middle East commemorate the three days Jonah spent inside the fish during the Fast of Ninevah.
