TEXT: Zephaniah 3:1-9 (KJV)

1 Woe to her that’s filthy and polluted, to the oppressing metropolis!

2 She obeyed not the voice; she obtained not correction; she trusted not within the Lord; she drew not close to to her God.

3 Her princes inside her are roaring lions; her judges are night wolves; they gnaw not the bones until the morrow.

4 Her prophets are gentle and treacherous individuals: her monks have polluted the sanctuary, they’ve performed violence to the legislation.

5 The simply Lord is within the midst thereof; he is not going to do iniquity: each morning doth he carry his judgment to gentle, he faileth not; however the unjust knoweth no disgrace.

6 I’ve minimize off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, in order that there isn’t any man, that there’s none inhabitant.

7 I mentioned, Certainly thou wilt concern me, thou wilt obtain instruction; so their dwelling shouldn’t be minimize off, howsoever I punished them: however they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.

8 Subsequently wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, till the day that I rise as much as the prey: for my willpower is to collect the nations, that I’ll assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all of the earth shall be devoured with the hearth of my jealousy.

9 For then will I flip to the folks a pure language, that they could all name upon the title of the Lord, to serve him with one consent.

KEY VERSE: “She obeyed not the voice; she obtained not correction; she trusted not within the LORD; she drew not close to to her God.” – (Zephaniah 3:2).


Attending to study from others and receiving directions and steerage are the best privileges we now have in life to enhance and make development. So, it does us loads of good when we now have individuals who act as mentors, coaches and academics and are keen to assist us navigate by means of life in order to get the most effective. We do ourselves an ideal disservice due to this fact, once we select to disregard the sensible and good counsel they provide.

Israel as a nation had the particular privilege of getting the Almighty God as their Mentor, Chief and Information. Sadly, they scorned the privilege, selecting to disregard His voice and stroll obstinately after their very own minds. They most likely felt they’d come of age and will handle and run their affairs with out God. Consequently, God, by means of Prophet Zephaniah pronounced woe and extreme judgment on them.

Obstinate folks arrogantly really feel they don’t want anybody to look into their affairs and dictate to them what to do. They turn into defiant, self-willed and self-dependent. They’re withdrawn, desirous to handle their affairs by themselves. They realise their errors when it’s virtually too late and pay dearly for his or her defiance and stubbornness.

Stubbornness will not be a mark of a real baby of God. Christians who’re meek, lowly and humble in coronary heart discover it simple to study, develop and be blissful in life. Allow us to all the time be keen to listen to, study and take corrections and we are going to all the time get pleasure from divine favour and blessings. Humility pays.

Obstinacy and Christianity are not any relations.
