Discussion for Zephaniah 1

  • Naomi
    Zephaniah, speaks how the GOD is going to destroy man and beast and those who have turned back from serving GOD. In addition, He will punish kings children.
  • Michael C.
    This little book written by Zephaniah the Prophet is talking about the Day of the Lord. This subject is what's inside the little scroll in the Father's right hand (Rev. 5-6); and one that is continually expounded on by the Prophets and Apostles throughout the Bible: but the world (and many so-called Christians) goes on as if it isn't an issue for them to be afraid of. The words are spoken by God!

    Strange clothing in Zephaniah and invisible military shields in 2015 become quantum stealth. Very important to repent daily.
  • Ochai Thomas A Edison
    This is a clear warning to the Nations, so let he that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. There cannot be an excuse!!!

    I love reading the online Bible! Zephaniah is one of my favorites because of the clear details of God's words through him.
  • Dorothy
    Zephaniah is a great book of the Bible and I think this is a warning to all of us. We should obey the Lord and heed to his warning, and by all means give your life over to the Lord.
