Question 29 – Repentance - Avenge

Joel 2:13 NKJV - "So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm."
Nahum 1:2 NKJV - "God is jealous, and the LORD avenges; The LORD avenges and is furious. The LORD will take vengeance on His adversaries, And He reserves wrath for His enemies;"
                The Lord God became furious, according to our sinful deeds. So, He handed us over to the wicked one. If we turn away from the abominable deeds which we are doing, and repent, He can stop His revengeful acts and His fury. Thus, the inner meaning in this is “He will not harm which He ought to do us if we repent’.

                Jonah 3:10 & 4:1, The Lord God was furious according to weight of the sins of people in the city Nineveh and sent Jonah the prophet. And the Lord God saved all the people of the city Nineveh from the destructive deed, because the people of the city Nineveh repented from their sinful deeds.
