Four reasons we need to gather ourselves now before God's throne.

1. The Scene of His Judgment is Comprehensive (Zephaniah 1:1-3)

2. The Scope of His Judgment is Extensive (Zephaniah 1:4-13)

      a. Divided Worship (4-6) The Grand Slaughter

      b. Worldly Influence (7-9) The Grand Sacrifice

      c. Indifferent Hearts (10-13) The Grand Search

3. The Severity of His Judgment is Harrowing (Zephaniah 1:14-18)

4. The Saving Opportunity is Here (Zephaniah 2:1-3)

Bible Study
