Bible Conference II
February 18th - 20th, 2005

So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city,
and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he
might see what would become of the city. Jonah 4:5

And the LORD God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up
over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver
him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day,
and it smote the gourd that it withered. Jonah 4:6, 7

Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much
less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath
devoured it, and it is burned? Ezekiel 15:5
