Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

July 27: The Nations

July 27: The Nations

When God makes and keeps His promises to Israel, He also makes and keeps His promises to the nations.  This has been true all through histoy and it always will be true.

This promise that He made to Zephaniah warns the nations of His judgment to come, but then there is the good news that the result of that judgment will be the cleansing of men’s hearts!

Zephaniah 3:8-11

So wait for me to come as judge,”
    announces the Lord.
“Wait for the day I will stand up
    to witness against all sinners.
I have decided to gather the nations.
    I will bring the kingdoms together.
And I will pour out all my burning anger on them.
    The fire of my jealous anger
    will burn the whole world up.

Israel Will Trust in the Lord

“But then I will purify what all the nations say.
    And they will use their words to worship me.
    They will serve me together.
10 My scattered people will come to me
    from beyond the rivers of Cush.
They will worship me.
    They will bring me offerings.
11 Jerusalem, you have done many wrong things to me.
    But at that time you will not be put to shame anymore.
That’s because I will remove from this city
    those who think so highly of themselves.
You will never be proud again
    on my holy mountain of Zion.

PRAY THAT YOUR NATION AND YOUR CHURCH WILL HEED GOD’S WARNINGS AND BLESSINGS OF THE JUDGEMENT TO COME.
