Assyria was a violent and Godless nation.

And for some reason GOD took it into His head to try and save them.

More particularly He sent one of His prophets to preach to their capital city. You may have heard of it - Ninevah.

Jonah was called by GOD to go to Ninevah, and he refused; not because he was afraid, but because he didn't want them to be saved.

Eventually Jonah goes, and preaches to them, and they repent and are saved. Of course Jonah sulks, because he wanted GOD to destroy them, not save them.

A cry of warning.
Salvation reaches to all.
Who are we to judge? 
God loves everyone, and wants everyone to be saved.  Not just the people we like.
He wants us to spread the word, even to those who are hostile.
God loved Ninevah (and us) enough to reach out to them (and us)... too should we.
