    Strange clothing in Zephaniah and invisible military shields in 2015 become quantum stealth. Very important to repent daily.

    Verse 8, The great day of the Lord is being talked about here. The strange or foreign clothing may be talking about cloaking material. Once thought to be only a Science Fiction technology, Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp., discusses the implications of militaries which can now become invisible with their light bending technology called "Quantum Stealth". Hyperstealth is a successful Canadian camouflage design company with over two million military issued uniforms and over 3000 vehicles and fighter jets using their patterns around the world. Quantum Stealth is a material that renders the target completely invisible by bending light waves around the target. The material removes not only your visual, infrared night vision and thermal signatures but also the target s shadow. This is strange clothing that renders the wearer invisible to the eye and is a reality in 2015.

    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.
