In this article, we would be looking at a country which God Almighty sent the prophet Jonah to go and spread the word of God and at the same time tell the people of that land to turn away from their ungodly ways. As we all know, the place in which prophet Jonah was said to have spread the word of God is known as Nineveh but a surprising fact is that the place called Nineveh is still in existence up till this very day.
Although the name Nineveh has been changed to Mosul and it is located in the present day Iraq which is a country dominated by Muslims. According to the Bible, God had asked the prophet Jonah to call the people of Nineveh to repentance because they had disobeyed his commandments but Jonah refused to go. Later on, Jonah was in a ship sailing to another land when a strong wind began to blow which almost made the boat to capsize and Jonah knew that it was the lord God who made the wind to blow.
He decided to throw himself off the boat so that those in the boat would not die with him when it capsizes but when he threw himself off the boat, God sent a big fish to swallow him. He later prayed to God and asked for his forgiveness but the merciful God answered his prayers and he was released from the fish. He later proceeded to Nineveh to spread the word of God.
