Zephaniah 1:1-2:3: The Day of God’s Wrath

Zephaniah warns God’s people that the Day of the LORD is near – a day when God will judge them for their sin and idolatry. Chapter 1 contains a bleak and terrifying message, and yet there is a silver lining. Zephaniah’s purpose is not to lead them to despair but to repentance. There is still a chance to change their ways before it’s too late.
