Sermon – Rebuke & Refuge: On that Day (Zeph 1:1-2:3)

Read the texts – Zephaniah 1:1-2:3

In this series we look at the book of Zephaniah and see the hope of grace in the shadow of God’s promised universal judgement and wrath.  The focus of the book is on the nature of the day of the Lord.  In wrath, God will reverse his blessings, yet also in mercy, he will reverse his curse for those who turn to him in repentance and faith.

In this talk, Andrew Cox helps us to understand how Hebrew Prophecy works to shape our understand of how God deals so justly and completely with sin (in Zephaniah’s time, concerning the people of Judah and in our time, us). And yet, how he does that with and eternal hope for those in faith.
