    The Word of the Lord came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi. Cushi is another name for Ethiopia and I never hear anyone refer to this title; was Zephaniah an Ethiopian? He has a powerful message for today.

    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.
