      Genesis 7:21 (NIV)
      21 Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind.
       
      Jonah 4:11 (NIV)
      11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”

      I am looking for music. Specifically the background music played in the Jehovah's Witnesses drama for Jonah. Is it possible to find all the background music for this drama?
      If it's not possible, I understand. 
      Thank you

      Ok ... um ... how did Jonah breathe and also how did he not get digested while in the stomach of the marine animal that ingested him?

      Who was Jonah? - What Can We Learn From Him? - He Learned From His Mistakes ~ ?????
      JONAH wished he could shut out the terrible sounds. It was not just the fierce wind, which was shrieking through the ship’s rigging; nor was it just the mountainous waves, which were thundering against the sides of the vessel, making her every timber creak and groan.
      ?????
      No, far worse to Jonah were the shouts of those mariners, the captain and his crew, as they struggled to keep the ship afloat. Jonah felt sure that those men were about to die—all because of him! When people think of the man Jonah, they often seem to focus on negative traits, such as his lapses into disobedience or even his hardheadedness. But there was far more to the man than that.
      ?????
      Remember, Jonah was selected to serve as a prophet of Jehovah God. Jehovah would not have picked him for such a weighty responsibility had he been unfaithful or unrighteous.
      ?????
      It may occasionally seem that God asks us to do what strikes us as difficult, even impossible. We may even find it daunting to preach the good news of God’s Kingdom, as Christians are required to do. (Matt. 24:14)
      ?????
      It is all too easy for us to forget the profound truth that Jesus uttered: “All things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27) If at times we lose sight of that truth, perhaps we can understand Jonah’s difficulty. What, though, were the consequences of Jonah’s flight?

      Our congregation in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico gathered to make a drama about Jonah

    • By TheWorldNewsOrg
      This could well be another hoax from the World News Daily, but their report for a 56-year-old Spanish fisherman great escape, reminiscent of the Biblical tale of Jonah and the whale, found quite a few takers on social media.
      According to the report on the “faux-journalism” site, Luigi Marquez was reported missing at sea after being thrown off his vessel during a violent sea storm. He was presumed dead after coastal guards found no signs of him during the search which lasted for days. Marquez claims he was swallowed by a whale — inside which he spent three days and three nights before being eventually flushed out. “This great beast swallowed me the morning after the storm,” the World News Daily quotes him. “It is the most frightening thing I have ever lived. Everything was pitch black and I was shivering cold.”
      But the story is just too good, or should we say too bad, to be true.
      The website is “dedicated on covering biblical archaeology news and other mysteries around the Globe”. This story will sure be another mystery.

    • Socialists NEVER learn the lessons of History ... because they believe in "free stuff" for everybody, and are seduced by Santa Clause. THEY want to be the Santa Clause !
    • Like the standing taco shell, Samsung’s new Galaxy Fold smartphone has earned its spot in the annals of folded-things-history. After teasing techies with a sneak peek in November, Samsung took yesterday for a little chest thumping and phone folding. How ’bout some specs The Galaxy Fold—essentially a phone that expands into a tablet—starts at $1,980 (wut) and is set for an April 26th release. It boasts a 4.6-inch screen when sandwiched in half, but expands to 7.3 inches once opened. Oh, and don’t forget about its two (2) batteries and six (6) cameras. The phone is also adapted for triple-app multitasking, meaning you can text your date while also looking up the bar where you’re meeting on Google Maps while (most importantly) stalking their Facebook. Finally, the innovation we’ve been waiting for. And for all you skeptics out there… We know what you’re thinking: The smartphone market is saturated. You might be right-ish, given that Apple is looking beyond the iPhone for revenue sources in the face of lower demand. Plus, estimates show that more than 5 billion people around the world have mobile devices (more than half of which are smartphones). But Samsung isn’t flinching. CEO DJ Koh said the Galaxy Fold “breaks new ground because it answers skeptics who say everything possible has been done, that the era of smartphone innovations is over, and that the smartphone is a mature technology in a saturated market.” Zoom out, c/o Bloomberg: “It’s a leap that rivals the category shifts not seen since smartphones took off with a broad audience more than a decade ago.”  + While we’re here: If you’re scared away by the price or you've been burned one too many times by a fitted sheet, Samsung also released four new varieties of its flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone yesterday, doubling its launch roster from years past.

    • I was not that coordinated, as a young boy. I tried that but somehow ended up eating the piece of grass, and the microbes would scream as wounded,  they fell out the left and right sides of my mouth.               eek!  eek! eek! eek! eek!                                                                                                                                        eek!  eek! eek! eek! eek! .
