Now what exactly is a Nineveh Prophecy? It refers to the preaching of Jonah to Nineveh in the book of Jonah. Jonah 3
4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.
5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.
10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
The principle here is that God gave the prophet a word for Nineveh, but because they repented the word did not come to pass. A "Nineveh Prophecy" is a Word warning of Judgment; Judgment that can be stayed by repentance.
Now in order for these prophecies we have been discussing to be "Nineveh Prophecies", we must hope for a revival and national repentance like they had in Nineveh. They all repented 'from the greatest of them even to the least of them.'
The hope of a Nineveh Prophecy is the hope for a Nineveh Revival. It is also a hope for a delay in judgment. We know that eventually God judged Nineveh. Much of the thinking that we can stay or delay God's judgment includes the thought that it must eventually come no matter what. And that the judgment, the final wrath will be utter desolation. The Nineveh revival is typical of many revivals throughout history, where the moral climate of nations was changed, almost overnight. I do not believe this is the type of revival we will have. And therefore I do not believe these are "Nineveh Prophecies".
