Thank you for sending out this news report. I had heard of it previously as it was actually briefly reported on by the mainline news media, but they didn’t really give any details.
Sister, you asked the question, “Could we really be this close to His coming?”
The answer to that question is “Yes,” and the evidence of it is right there in your
email. Why is it that Jonah’s tomb is being attacked and destroyed?
Because Jonah’s tomb is not only a type of the three days and nights that Christ would be in the heart of the earth, but it also typifies the three days (3,000 years…2 Peter 3:8) that Israel and the Jewish people have been in blindness and bondage, grinding at the mills of their enemies just like Samson did. Read Hosea 6:1-3 and the account of Samson in the Book of Judges. When Jonah cried out to the Lord for mercy in the belly of the fish, he was restored to useful service to the Lord. It is time for Israel to break their bonds by crying out to the Lord for mercy. When they do, they too will be restored to useful service to the Lord. The three days of their blindness and bondage, and servitude to their enemies, will end any day now with the resurrection and rapture of New Covenant believers as the Lord Himself prophesied in Revelation 3:10. The spiritual resurrection of Israel and the Jewish people will immediately follow as the Tribulation begins, Joel 2:28-32; Ezekiel 37:1-14; Revelation 7:1-8. The past “two days” (2.000 years) have now been fulfilled and it is time for Israel and the Jewish people to be “revived” spiritually, as they have already been nationally, Hosea 6:1-3.
The fact that the wicked Muslims are destroying the tomb of Jonah is indeed prophetically significant. They would like to keep the fulfillment of the complete type of Jonah’s resurrection from happening on the part of the redemption and restoration of Israel. They may be able to totally destroy the tomb of Jonah, but they will never be able to stop the type he set forth from being fulfilled in Israel and the Jewish people. The three days of Israel’s blindness and bondage and servitude are quickly coming to an end, and that means GLORY for us who are New Covenant believers. I can almost visualize dear old Jonah standing in Heaven watching all of this scenario on earth unfolding, and laughing at the willingly ignorant Muslims as they physically destroy his tomb, Hebrews 12:1-2. Hallelujah! What a “sign!” Praise the Lord Jesus our beloved and precious Savior and Lord.
Dear sister, I am not “seeking” a sign, yet the Lord God has graciously given me enough spiritual discernment to recognize His “signs” when He places them in the earth. And as I
see and have seen many “signs” come to pass that were clearly predicted in God’s Word to occur in these “last days,” just before our Lord comes for us New Covenant believers, I am
not ignorant of where we are at on God’s prophetic time clock. This “sign of Jonah” is just one of many, and I feel it is one of the more important “signs.”
Share my comments with all to whom you desire to do so. God bless you.
Subject: Pic: How Prophetic Is This?
The “evil and adulterous generation that seeks after a sign” is striking back with a sledgehammer today. Just as Satan and one-third of the angels went about destroying God’s creation on Earth in a hissy fit at being deposed from Heaven so fast, so Satan’s minions are once again actively destroying Biblical/historic evidence that Jonah even
Jonah’s three (3) days in the belly of a whale were given as a sign that the Jewish Messiah would first be put in a grave and then resurrected three days later. In like manner, the resurrection of His saints precedes His return.
How prophetic then is this picture in light of world events and the promised, soon return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign? Could we really be this close to His coming?
It couldn’t be any clearer than this!

41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a *greater than Jonas is here. (Ed., *Their true messiah, Jesus Christ, whom they did not recognize at the time.)
