Zephaniah: Seek the Lord
Some translate Zephaniah “Jehovah has concealed,” “Jehovah has hidden” or “Jehovah has covered”-in terms of protection. We have to look at what “hidden” means in this context. Consider Moses hidden for three months after he was born, protecting him from Pharaoh’s orders to murder every Hebrew boy. The wicked also hide – they hide themselves and prey upon the innocent, but cannot hide their sins from God. He was a contemporary of King Josiah of Judah and the prophet Jeremiah. We don’t have a ton of background on Zephaniah, or many of the prophets, but maybe God wants us to be less focused on the man and more focused on the message. Join us as Michael teaches through the book of Zephaniah, a book of warning and encouragement with practical application fitting for our time.
