Zephaniah 1

The word of the Lord which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham;

And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills.

11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.

13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.

14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

  1. 15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

    16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

    17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

    18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    This is why it’s important to make sure we are standing on God side because that wrath that he is bringing for those against him it ain’t good.

    Thank You Jesus!

  2. “Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭KJV

    The LORD JESUS is coming. Our hearts need to be right before Him. As the church we must continue to reach for souls to bring them into His Kingdom. We must remember that GOD holds time in His hand, not us!

    “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
    ‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:8-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    ‘And the Lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭14:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  3. 1 The word of the Lord which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

    2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

    3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

    4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

    5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham;

    6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

    The first six verses are introductory. They convey a message from the Lord through Zechariah the son of Berechiah to the people, urging them to return to the Lord. Verse 3 strikes the keynote of the book: “ Thus says the Lord of hosts: Return to me, says the Lord of hosts, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts,” He urges the people to profit from the mistakes of their fathers, who refused to listen to the former prophets, such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Hosea. Judgment overtook the people, as the Lord had warned, and them they realized that the Lord was dealing with them because of their evil ways.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  4. Zephaniah 1:4‭-‬5 NLT
    4 “I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear.
    5 For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the Lord, but then they worship Molech, too.

    This verse makes me examine myself. Yes I go to church, I praise and worship Him. I give what belongs to Him and serve Him but is God really number one in my life. Or is there something that is a greater priority in my life. Maybe my job, family, a hobbie, ect….. What ever I am more passionate about that is my Idol.
    We serve a jealous God and He wants all of us, not just part or when we need Him. Its time to repent and make Good the number one priority in our lives.

  5. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

    15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

    16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

    17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

    18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    This hit home as I read my nieces comment in Facebook that said “why bother being good if all the other person do is look for ways to hurt other people and it seems like all the bad people seem to prosper as she seats and works harder and harder getting no where. It kind of makes a saint discouraged that time seems to be consumed and working hard just is too much and to watch evil proper. But the day will continue me when our Jesus will return and put everything and everyone in their rightful place!!!! Thank you Jesus. Remember obedience is the biggest blessing.

  6. Verses 4-6 MSG “I’ll start with Judah and everybody who lives in Jerusalem. I’ll sweep the place clean of every trace of the sex-and-religion Baal shrines and their priests. I’ll get rid of the people who sneak up to their rooftops at night to worship the star gods and goddesses; Also those who continue to worship God but cover their bases by worshiping other king-gods as well; Not to mention those who’ve dumped God altogether, no longer giving him a thought or offering a prayer.” You can’t go sneaking around and doing other things as you will find yourself no longer giving him a thought or offering a prayer. Joshua 24:15 CEV says “But if you don’t want to worship the Lord, then choose right now! Will you worship the same idols your ancestors did? Or since you’re living on land that once belonged to the Amorites, maybe you’ll worship their gods. I won’t. My family and I are going to worship and obey the Lord!” Choose to LIVE-GIVE JESUS²

  7. 6. And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance or seek my blessings. NLT

    Giving your life to Jesus is the best decision you’ll ever make, but it’s only the very beginning. It takes faith, strength, and courage to continue to live for Him through all of life’s trials, until the very end; always seeking His guidance and doing what He blesses.

    Matthew 10:22
    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. KJV

  8. Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the Lord’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth.
    Zephaniah 1:18 NLT

    Fortunately, those that fear the lord and walk in upright this and Holiness now will not experiences the same way those that has forsaken his name will. Everything on Earth is temporary and there really is no hope outside of Christ. Not just for fear of the Lord but also have love we continue to remain safely in his arms and away from his wrath. His anger is preserved for those that refuse to follow him

  9. Zephaniah 1: 18 ( amp) Neither their silver nor their gold be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s indignation and wrath. But the whole earth shall be consumed in the fire of His jealous wrath, for a full ,yes,a sudden end will He make of all the inhabitants of the earth.
    Matt. 28:31 When the Son of mam comes in His glory
    ( His Majesty and splendor) and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
    You can’t buy your way to heaven!
    You going to reap what sow!
    Material things are nothing, compare what Jesus gives you.
    Salvation is more important than money can buy.
    Get yourself ready he coming back!
    Work while you can.
    Jesus you are all we need.

  10. Senor bien dice tu palabra que eres lento para la ira Y sobre todo que eres in DIOS de Amor y misericordia ayudame a continuar poniendote numero 1en mi Vida haciendo lo que tu me pides.

  11. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

    We need to win more souls

  12. ““On that day,” says the Lord, “a cry of alarm will come from the Fish Gate and echo throughout the New Quarter of the city. And a great crash will sound from the hills.”
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    It will be a day of chaos and horror. The Lord will come and take his people. And the world would be shock. Don’t won’t feel peace if they ever felt it. They won’t feel joy if they experienced it. The spirit of God would be gone from this earth.
    His people will go and all our cares would be off our shoulders. Thank you Jesus! You are the judge!

  13. ““I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear. For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the Lord, but then they worship Molech, too. And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance or seek my blessings.””
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:4-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We see that this prophecy was an invitation, as if God said: “Baal and the idols are going to go. You can get rid of them in righteousness or I will get rid of them in judgment, but rest assured that they are going to go. If we have something that needs to go, let’s get rid of it in righteousness.

  14. 18 neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the lords wrath but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all of them that dwell in the land.

  15. I love pofw live Jesus Give Jesus 2 . Get ready the lord is coming. Stay ready so you don’t miss his coming. Live for God hard and bring as many to him as you can.

  16. Zephaniah 1
    Zephaniah wastes no time in declaring the judgement of God what is going to come.
    Message translation is very explicit in the judgement is coming .
    Zephaniah 1:4-6

    I’ll start with Judah
    and everybody who lives in Jerusalem.
    I’ll sweep the place clean of every trace
    of the sex-and-religion Baal shrines and their priests

    Also those who continue to worship God
    but cover their bases by worshiping other king-gods as well;
    Not to mention those who’ve dumped God altogether,
    no longer giving him a thought or offering a prayer.

    We are truly also living in a time that God’s judgement is coming . Why do people think they can keep hiding their life style? Why are there good people who just walk right away from what they know is right? Painfully they do and I still have no answer . The judgement of this world is coming and I truly think there are those who do not believe it. We must keep teaching and teaching The Word. We must live the Word .

  17. 6 NLT “And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance or seek my blessings.””
    “12 NLT “I will search with lanterns in Jerusalem’s darkest corners to punish those who sit complacent in their sins. They think the Lord will do nothing to them, either good or bad.”
    ‭‭God was looking for individuals to worship Him by choice. Not just because their idols had been destroyed. Choose to serve the Lord. If you don’t it will cost you your life. Don’t be complacent in your sin and think God is bluffing. His Word is true.

  18. What a word to receive from God when you’re king. Devastating. God gives so much love and so many chances. Lord I thank You for keeping Your hand on us. I bless Your Holy Name.

  19. Zephaniah 1:2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

    The warnings of Jesus Judgment are nothing to play with, He is a jealous God.

    V.6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

    Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

    Psalm 125:5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the Lord shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

  20. 17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

    This is exactly how it is to walk in sin!!! We walked blindly with no hope!!! Now that those scales have been removed why do we sin? Flesh needs to be crucified!!! How fasting, discipline, worship, praise and PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING

  21. NLT
    Vs 6 – And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance or seek my blessings.”

    Vs 9 – Yes, I will punish those who participate in pagan worship ceremonies, and those who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.

    Vs 12 – “I will search with lanterns in Jerusalem’s darkest corners to punish those who sit complacent in their sins. They think the Lord will do nothing to them, either good or bad.

    These verses prove God’s wrath and judgement will not only be against those who we may deem as “truly bad,” but will be against even the “smallest” of sins. Not doing what His Word says, like verse 12. Giving more time and talent to things or people other than God, like verse 9. Even simply not doing what we know to do like verse 6. We must stay committed to the Word of God. We must value our salvation and our relationship with God!

  22. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

    16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

    Heed the warnings. Jesus is coming back

    18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    God can’t be paid off. All the money in the world can’t pay off the man upstairs. He’s about to kill everyone…and guess what? It’s not his fault. It’s the fault of sinfulness. God gives warning and this is the consequence of mans pride and disobedience.

  24. Zephaniah 1:6
    And I will destroy those who used to worship me
    but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the Lord’s guidance or seek my blessings.”

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    [5]Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
    [6]Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

    When You Seek God’s Guidance, Make Sure You Abandon Your Personal Priorities in Favor of the Will of God. When You Seek God’s Guidance, You Must Be Willing to Wait for a Word from God.  The greatest evidence of a person’s faith is not how quickly they make decisions but how long they are willing to stand still waiting for a word from God.  Circumstances often scream hurry.  Faith whispers wait.

  25. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
    15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

    This dispensation has a finite time, nevertheless these descriptions can also apply to a personal level for the condition of the lost.

  26. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

    We hear this same cry today and the Lord is returning soon. God gives the warning so people can get ready or stay ready, so others can come back to Him. While some won’t believe the warning, others will, so we must reach out to anyone who will listen and let God draw them. The prayer of a softened heart and open mind will help someone be saved.

  27. “Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the Lord’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth.”
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Everything we have is temporary, this ole world we live in it’s just temporary and I’m just passing through. I use to desire the riches and the “good” life but I’ve got my treasures invested in somewhere much greater than here. The days are long but the years are fast we need to make our time here on earth all for the Kingdom’s sake.

  28. Zephaniah 1:12 (NIV)
    “At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are COMPLACENT, who are like wine left in the dregs, who think, The LORD will do nothing, either good or bad.”
    Zephaniah 1:12 (NASB)
    “And it will come about at that time that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and I will punish the people who are STAGNANT in spirit, who say in their hearts, The LORD will not do good or harm!”

    The two words that stood out to me in these two versions is COMPLACENT and STAGNANT.
    Synonyms for COMPLACENT are satisfied, content, comfortable, unconcerned, careless, lazy, etc…
    Synonyms for STAGNANT are inactive, motionless, lifeless, still, stale, foul, etc…

    In the time we are living in, we can see many Christians becoming COMPLACENT (satisfied, content, comfortable, unconcerned, careless, lazy) in their walk with God. The sad thing is COMPLACENCY can lead to becoming STAGNANT (inactive, motionless, lifeless, still, stale, foul) in our spirit.

    Help Us JESUS not to become COMPLACENT in our walk with you, nor STAGNANT in our spirit.
    Help Us JESUS to Keep The FIRE On Our Altar Always Burning with PRAYER and being Filled with the HOLY GHOST.
    Help Us JESUS to always be about Your Kingdom Business.

  29. TLB – 2 “I will sweep away everything in all your land,” says the Lord. “I will destroy it to the ground. 3 I will sweep away both men and animals alike. Mankind and all the idols that he worships—all will vanish. Even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will perish. 4 I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every remnant of those who worship Baal; I will put an end to their idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear. 5 They go up on their roofs and bow to the sun, moon, and stars. They ‘follow the Lord,’ but worship Molech too! I will destroy them. 6 And I will destroy those who formerly worshiped the Lord, but now no longer do, and those who never loved him and never wanted to.”

    The prophecy that came from Zephaniah in that day, could very easily be prophesied to our nation today.

    God has always wanted relationship with His people. He wanted them to love Him and want Him. Just as in those days, people want a microwave religion, CEO’s, only when necessary. We as the Church have to change that culture. Firstly we can’t have that same mindset. Our focus must be Kingdom minded. If all we are doing is making plans for this life and not the life thereafter, we are going to find ourselves as part of those destroyed by fire, and not living eternally.

    God’s word cannot lie and will not return void. It is us that has to make the changes necessary to live holy and acceptable, a living sacrifice before the Lord.

  30. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    THE JUDGEMENT OF SIN

    17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
    18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    While man supposes there is no GOD.

    6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

    While the GRACE of GOD is active in our lives, HE allows us to make choices to obey or rebel, to build or tear down, to please GOD or self, to seek and follow our will or HIS will.

    We must keep in mind that we are not skirting or skating by GOD with sin. NO. The prophet says that GOD will bring distress upon men (if we think it is rough now, I am sure will pale in comparison). the distress will bs so great that they will walk like blind men, grasping and searching for direction.

    May the Spirit of the LORD JESUS move us today to REPENTANCE. Repent of every sin, all disobedience, lies, lusts and pride (self will). We must get the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom to the world around us that we all my live a REPENTED life before GOD.

  31. 6And I will destroy those who used to worship me
    but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance or seek my blessings.”

    Oh, how many are in this state, they worshipped once but now they don’t. Just because they didn’t get what they wanted, they’ll stop praying. Instead of continuous prayer, they stop. We have to always pray and thank God for everything we have.

  32. Zephaniah Chapter 1

    18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    We will be raptured before the verse above is being done. Thank you Jesus

  33. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

    This book starts off with a bang! The prophet describes how the Lord is coming with wrath upon those who have made themselves His enemies. Stepping out of bounds from His covering is dangerous. Sin separates us from God and outside his protection we are not just prey to satan but to His wrath. This is why it’s important to have routine check-ups from the neck up to determine where we are in our walk. The stumbling blocks and the those that stumble are liability’s. Thank God we still have breath in our lungs to repent before the Lords return. He is coming back for the church, His bride without spot or blemish. That’s why we have to be in preparation. Making ourselves ready in season and out of season. That way we may be in tune and ready when He calls on us. The day is drawing near and we must work while the sun still shines to reach others out of darkness and into His marvelous light.

  34. 4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

    Allow God to stretch forth his hand and begin to work in your life. He can only change you if you allow him to. When we let God work, he can do great things.

  35. 4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
    5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the Lord, and that swear by Malcham;
    6 And them that are turned back from the Lord; and those that have not sought the Lord, nor enquired for him.

    From Baal worshiping to not seeking Jesus, it’s all sin, and the wages of sin is death.

  36. “Because you have sinned against the Lord, I will make you grope around like the blind. Your blood will be poured into the dust, and your bodies will lie rotting on the ground.””
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The day that the Lord is coming back is coming soon, and now it is your chance to fully change your ways and give yourself 100% for God before it’s to late. If you don’t all of your actions all of your sins will have you pay the consequences. We have a God that forgives! Why is something less than God keeping you from him. I pray that we open our minds to realize that God is the only one we need, that he is our true God the one who gives us life and joy!

  37. 18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

    It is so unwise to build up treasures here and disregard the fact that following God is the most important thing in this life and the life to come.

  38. 3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

    God is more than able to handle any situation that you may have. You should never ever hesitate to bring something to Him, cause He knows are sees all. God will always be watching! You might think none can see or hear you, but He can! We must be making sure to cleanse our hearts and minds for God to have His way in our lives. I pray tonight that you are being obedient to the word, and bringing forthwith cleansed heart unto Him!!!

  39. “Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign Lord, for the awesome day of the Lord’s judgment is near. The Lord has prepared his people for a great slaughter and has chosen their executioners.”
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Pray up, Fast up, and Read up! You never know when he’s gonna be here to round us up!

  40. 2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the Lord.

    14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
    15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

    Be careful. . . To be careful stay right, stay repentance, and stay clean. The day of His return on near!! Stay close, stay on the Lord’s side.

  41. 7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

  42. “For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the Lord, but then they worship Molech, too.”
    Zephaniah 1:5 NLT

    Put to death your flesh on the altar. There’s only one way is Jesus there’s no other god beside Him. You can’t be one foot in the world and the other in Jesus. We got to choose either to live for Jesus or the world. Heaven and earth shall fade away but God will remain. He reigns forever.

  43. “Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the Lord’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth.”
    ‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    When we pass away, we can’t take any of our possessions with us. There is no trying to bribe God about his decision. All we take with us are the actions we have to live eternally with. Are our actions and decisions leading us to Glory or to damnation?

  44. 3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.

    God’s wrath is upon all evil. No one is exempt from their wickedness because God sees everything.

  45. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

    Soon and very soon he is coming back. Will you be ready. Now more than ever it is important that we search ourselves daily and make sure we are in line with the lord because he is coming soon. Now more than ever it is important that we win these lost hurting souls to Christ. We have to go above and beyond to reach the city. There are many souls out there who are hurting and don’t know their way out of the darkness but we can be that light.

  46. “And it shall be, In the day of the Lord’s sacrifice, That I will punish the princes and the king’s children, And all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.
    Zephaniah 1:8 NKJV

    There is a scripture in the book of Revelations that talks about the white garments
    Revelations 3:5
    He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

    Not only there but throughout the Bible we find this highlighted: angels in white clothing, the elders in white, the Ancient of Days his ventures where white as snow, Jesus’s transfiguration and his garments became white as light, the young man at the tomb clothed in a long white robe… 
    It is almost as if this prophecy and declaration of Judgment to come is for our time and very soon.  The trust is that it really is for us all.  But only those that have washed their garments will be able to be saved and enter in to the marriage supper of the Lamb.  In that day those who have sanctified themselves will stay, those who have worked out their own salvation and separating themselves from this untoward generation.  Those white garments are a representation of sanctification and holiness which, without,  none shall see the Lord. 

    “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
    Matthew 22:11‭-‬14 NKJV
