Zephaniah (part two)

God's message that Zephaniah delivered in Judah was shockingly severe. God had patiently sent a long string of prophets to warn Judah that their persistent rebellion would be judged, and Zephaniah's message suggests that God's anger had reached a boiling point. Unless they repent, He plans to erase them and any memory of them from the earth. Our future promises another terrible day of judgment for those who fail to heed God's warnings and come to Him on His terms. As the New Testament reminds us, "It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God" (Hebrews 10:31).
