Zephaniah 311-12
  • 11 In that day you will feel no shame
  • Because of all your deeds
  • By which you have rebelled against Me
  • For then I will remove from your midst
  • Your proud, exulting ones,
  • And you will never again be haughty
  • On My holy mountain.
  • 12 But I will leave among you
  • A humble and lowly people,
  • And they will take refuge in the name of the LORD.

10
Lessons from Zephaniah
  • God used the Babylonians to bring severe judgment
    on Judah and many other nations for their sins.
  • Humbly seeking God provides hope for protection
    from harm.
  • The destruction of other nations would one day be
    to Israels advantage.
  • God will purify Gentiles and Jews and grant them
    magnificent blessings after his judgment is
    complete.

JOEL
  • Yahweh is God

12

13
Other Observations
  • Joel makes no mention of the northern kingdom of
    Israel as a separate entity.
  • When he does speak of Israel, he uses it in a
    sense where it seems to refer to a united
    covenant people of God.

14
Outline of Joel
15
Joel 11
  • The word of the LORD that came to Joel, the son
    of Pethuel

16
Joel 12-3
  • 2 Hear this, O elders,
  • And listen, all inhabitants of the land.
  • Has anything like this happened in your days
  • Or in your fathers' days?
  • 3 Tell your sons about it,
  • And let your sons tell their sons,
  • And their sons the next generation.

17
Joel 14
  • What the gnawing locust has left, the swarming
    locust has eaten
  • And what the swarming locust has left, the
    creeping locust has eaten
  • And what the creeping locust has left, the
    stripping locust has eaten.

18
Joel 110
  • The field is ruined,
  • The land mourns,
  • For the grain is ruined,
  • The new wine dries up,
  • Fresh oil fails

The field fails, The land loses, For the grain is
gone, The wine withers, Fresh oil fails
19
Joel 212-13
  • 12 "Yet even now," declares the LORD,
  • "Return to Me with all your heart,
  • And with fasting, weeping, and mourning
  • 13 And rend your heart and not your garments."

Habakkuk 33-5
3 God comes from Teman, And the Holy One from
Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor covers the
heavens, And the earth is full of His praise. 4
His radiance is like the sunlight He has rays
flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding
of His power. 5 Before Him goes pestilence, And
plague comes after Him.
43
Habakkuk 313
Thou didst go forth for the salvation of Thy
people, For the salvation of Thine anointed.
Thou didst strike the head of the house of the
evil To lay him open from thigh to neck. Selah.
44
Habakkuk 317-18
17 Though the fig tree should not blossom, And
there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield
of the olive should fail, And the fields produce
no food, Though the flock should be cut off from
the fold, And there be no cattle in the
stalls, 18 Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will
rejoice in the God of my salvation.
45
Habakkuk 319
The Lord God is my strength, And He has made my
feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my
high places. For the choir director, on my
stringed instruments.
