June 18:  End Times, The Day of the Lord

God warns of total destruction

Many people prefer not to think about “The Day of the Lord.”  Indeed, it will be frightening especially for those who are not confident in God’s protection. So thousands of years ago God gave the world warnings of what is to come. 

Zephaniah 1:1-3

The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

“I wlll utterly consume everything
From the face of the land,”
Says the Lord;
“I will consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens,
The fish of the sea,
And the stumbling blocks along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the land,”
Says the Lord.

God trusts His servants to share His burden for the lost and hate the sin of the wicked.  But He doesn’t expect them to carry it further than to His cross…and leave it there!

PRAY FOR GRACE TO CARRY GOD’S BURDEN FOR ISRAEL

AND TO LEAVE IT WITH HIM AT THE CROSS!
