Justice will Prevail

Zephaniah 3:1-13 Woe to all that is filthy and defiled, woe to all who refuse to heed God’s warning. They won’t take correction or place their trust in their Creator. Their leaders have no concern for the people and prophet and priest alike profane the Holy Scriptures.

The Lord has judged and punished mankind before, but they continue on in their evil deeds and show no shame for it.

Therefore: look out for Me, for the Day when I will stand up to witness against you, for the Day that I execute justice, for I will pour out the fire of My wrath and the whole earth will be affected. 2 Peter 3:7

On that Day, the Holy Land shall be cleared of all its proud and arrogant citizens, only the humble and peaceful people will remain, those who never practise evil or speak lies, they will settle in the Land and no one will disturb them. My righteous people will come from afar to worship the Lord and bring offerings to Him. Isaiah 66:18-21

They will all know a pure language, so everyone will know the true Name of the Lord and will praise Him with one accord. Psalms 106:47

Revelation 7:9…I saw a vast uncountable throng of people from every race and language, in front of Mt Zion, all in white robes and waving palm branches. They shouted: Victory to our God who sits on the Throne and to the Lamb.

Zephaniah 3:14-18 Shout in triumph you Land of Zion, sing for joy, you daughter of Jerusalem, for the Lord has revoked your sins and swept away your enemies. He is once more with you and you need never again fear disaster. Isaiah 66:14

This is the message to all who trust in their Creator: Do not be afraid on the Day of Judgement against My enemies, for I am in your midst and will keep you safe.

[In your midst: the same way as He was with the ancient Israelites. The physical Return of Jesus will come later, after all that is prophesied before that takes place.]

Zephaniah 3:19-20 Be sure that at that time, the Lord will deal with all who have opposed Him and My people will no longer endure reproach.

The Lord will show His love for His own people and will rejoice over them. He will rescue the lost and gather the dispersed into their rightful heritage.    Psalms 107

When the Lord establishes His people into all of the Holy Land, all the world will be amazed at the great blessings they have received.     Ezekiel 34:25-31

Psalm 126:1-3 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were as a people renewed in health. Our mouths were full of laughter and we sang for joy! The rest of the world said: The Lord God has done great things for them. And we rejoiced!
