Zephaniah was an unusual prophet because he was of royal descent.
Even though God’s message is grim Zephaniah delivers it without relent.
Punishment will come upon the idolaters, the leaders and the royalties.
Having values, trends and ways of the world was their wrongful loyalty.
And the people became indifferent to God and complacent in their sins.
Now imminent chastisement may come down upon anyone God pins.
Imbedded in the announcement of judgment lies God’s invitation for repentance.
All God desires is that we return to Him before we are beyond acceptance.
Have we, like the Israelites, become complacent in our journey of faith?
