“Gather together, gather, you unwanted people. Do it before it’s too late, before you are blown away like chaff, before the LORD’s terrible anger reaches you, before the day of the LORD’s anger comes to you.
Come to the LORD, all you who are not proud, who obey his laws.
Do what is right.
Learn to be humble.
Maybe you will escape on the day the LORD shows his anger.” – Zephaniah 2:1-3
Zephaniah 1 details some of the punishments coming because of the people’s disobedience.
Here, even way back then, He’s offering His people a way of escape.
Christmas, Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection, is our reminder God has provided the ultimate way of escaping His judgement.
