After the prophet Jonah, there are seven other prophets who were inspired by God to write the prophecies that He gave to them. These prophets all had very important things to tell the people of God as well as those who were enemies of the nation of Israel. God loves His people, and they will be blessed according to His will. But because of their disobedience, He allowed and will allow many sad things to happen to them until they turn to Him in faith.
Even though there are many warnings given in these prophetic books, there are also many wonderful verses of comfort which tell of God’s unchangeable love and His desire to bless His beloved people. There are also solemn warnings given against those Gentile nations who, though allowed by God to punish the nation of Israel, took great delight in the pain and sorrow they inflicted upon God’s people.
These prophets all tell of things that yet have to be accomplished. After the Lord Jesus comes to take all believers home to the Father’s house to be with Him forever, these prophecies will have their final fulfillment.
