The Message

Zephaniah 3

The Holy One of Israel says:

“I will leave in your midst a meek and humble people, and they shall trust in the Name of the LORD. The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; for they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and NO ONE shall make them afraid.”

“Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall see disaster NO MORE.”

“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: ‘Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, WILL save; He WILL rejoice over you with gladness, He WILL quiet you with His Love, He WILL rejoice over you with SINGING.’”

“I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, who are among you, to whom its reproach is a burden. Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, and gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame in every land where they were put to shame. At that time I will bring you back, even at the time I gather you; for I will give you fame and praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I return your captives before your eyes,’ says the LORD.”

Behold! That DAY is upon us! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! And the Kingdom of Heaven is not only about Salvation, but about Restoration of all things, Restitution (paying one back all that is due to him), Reconciliation through Repentance, and Unity (oneness, set-apartness or sanctification, holiness in the fear of GOD)!
