BIBLE BOOK ZEPHANIAH

Zephaniah means: Yahweh is my secret; Yahweh has hidden/protected.  Written about 630bc during the reign of King Josiah of Judah (Refer 2 Kings and 2 Cronicles).  This book goes back into four generations to Hezekiah; the King whose life God added 15 years more.

 

The Book teaches us that God is a God of restoration and hope.

No matter what you are going through, He wants you to be blessed and to succeed in life. God is a mighty warrior that wants to save you and he rejoices over you once you have repented over your sin, and accepted Jesus as Your Savior. Chapter 2:3 has a very important scripture:

Zep 2:3 Seek the Lord [inquire for Him, inquire of Him, and require Him as the foremost necessity of your life], all you humble of the land who have acted in compliance with His revealed will and have kept His commandments; seek righteousness, seek humility [inquire for them, require them as vital]. It may be you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.

Worshiping and seeking God is the only necessary thing for your life. God wants to gather those that are imperfect and wants to teach you to live in freedom and success in this life; without fear, doubt, shame, negativity, blame, etc.  V17 of Chapter 3 tells us that God is in your midst, an invincible force, fighting for you.

Take a few minutes and read these three chapters in God’s Word and be blessed. Shalom
