And Jonas began to enter into the city one day's journey: and he cried, and said: Yet forty days, and Ninive shall be destroyed. And the men of Ninive believed in God: and they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least. And the word came to the king of Ninive; and he rose up out of his throne, and cast away his robe from him, and was clothed with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published in Ninive from the mouth of the king and of his princes, saying: Let neither men nor beasts, oxen nor sheep, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water. And let men and beasts be covered with sackcloth, and cry to the Lord with all their strength, and let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the iniquity that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn, and forgive: and will turn away from his fierce anger, and we shall not perish? And God saw their works, that they were turned from their evil way: and God had mercy with regard to the evil which he had said that he would do to them, and he did it not. Jonas.iii.
You do understand that we are not Ninive.......
We are not even close. Men do not fast as penance for their sins against God. Even our beasts are fat.
I suppose you're fat self & your fat pet can get lap band surgery - but that does not fool God.
So, you do understand what comes next....
We are the opposite of Ninive.
Our future will be the opposite of Ninive.
U.S. Pets Are Getting Fatter, According To New Report
It’s no secret that Americans waistlines have been expanding for years, and a new report shows our pets are following suit. Banfield Pet Hospital's 2017 State of Pet Health report found that one in three pets who visited Banfield pet facilities in 2016 was overweight or obese. The annual report details health habits of the 2.5 million dogs and 500,000 cats who visited facilities across the country in 2016. Dr. Kirk Breuninger, a veterinary research associate at Banfield Pet Hospital, said they noticed a trend in pets gaining weight five years ago. "More than 20 disease conditions have been linked with pets being overweight," Breuninger said. "While some may say, 'My pet looks cute being pudgy or plump,' ultimately carrying those extra pounds contributes to exasperating these diseases." Source
