Luke 11:29-32, NASJonah was sent to evangelize Nineveh. The Ninevites believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and were saved. There were 120,000 children in Nineveh under the age of 7, who did not know their right hand from their left. Thus, the number of adults was around 600,000. The Ninevites were the worst terrorists in history, but when confronted with the realization of the judgment of Almighty God, they repented in sackcloth and ashes and believed in Jesus Christ. Their faith delivered their nation from the wrath of God. It was the greatest evangelistic crusade in history.
29 And as the crowds were increasing, He began to say, “This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign, and yet no sign shall be given to it but the sign of Jonah. 30 “For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so shall the Son of Man be to this generation. 31 “The Queen of the South shall rise up with the men of this generation at the judgment and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. 32 “The men of Nineveh shall stand up with this generation at the judgment and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
Yet, when the Lord Jesus Christ came to Israel, His largest crowds numbered in the thousands - not hundreds of thousands. The Jews rejected Him as well as the Arabs. The Jews and the Arabs hate the name of Jesus. An evil generation rejects the Savior of the world. The people of Nineveh were evil, but when they heard the truth, they believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was also the Jehovah of the Old Testament.
Now, under the nose of the National Weather Service has come a sign, the sign of the nail-scarred hand. For those who wouldn't believe the sign of Jonah yesterday, will they believe the sign of the Lord Jesus Christ today? The door of Salvation is open for all. The Lord Jesus Christ was nailed to a cross and paid for the sins of the world so that all who will believe can have Eternal Life.
For you see, in this manner, God loved the world, that He gave His uniquely born Son that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have Eternal Life (John 3:16)
“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NAS)

Jesus Christ spoke the simple truth on earth. Those who believed in Him were saved. They were delivered from their life of Spiritual death into the kingdom of Eternal Life. Everyone born into this life is born with the sin of Adam. That sin is passed down through the male sperm. A person is born physically alive but spiritually dead. He is cut off from God in darkness. He cannot understand spiritual things without a spirit. Spiritual regeneration is necessary to know God. Anyone can know God who is willing to follow God's procedure for Salvation, which is:
"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). "Everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have Eternal Life" (John 3:16b).Belief in Jesus Christ can be expressed in the privacy of the soul to God the Father: "Father, I believe in Jesus Christ." God will honor any request for Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
