I Am Mountain, Burning (11.7MB); March 8, 2015
Based on Zephaniah 3 [show] Woe to her who is rebellious and defiled, the oppressing city! [2]She listens to no voice; she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD; she does not draw near to her God. [3]Her officials within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves that leave nothing till the morning. [4]Her prophets are fickle, treacherous men; her priests profane what is holy; they do violence to the law. [5]The LORD within her is righteous; he does no injustice; every morning he shows forth his justice; each dawn he does not fail; but the unjust knows no shame. [6]"I have cut off nations; their battlements are in ruins; I have laid waste their streets so that no one walks in them; their cities have been made desolate, without a man, without an inhabitant. [7]I said, 'Surely you will fear me; you will accept correction. Then your dwelling would not be cut off according to all that I have appointed against you.' But all the more they were eager to make all their deeds corrupt. [8]"Therefore wait for me," declares the LORD, "for the day when I rise up to seize the prey. For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them my indignation, all my burning anger; for in the fire of my jealousy all the earth shall be consumed. [9]"For at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call upon the name of the LORD and serve him with one accord. [10]From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, the daughter of my dispersed ones, shall bring my offering. [11]"On that day you shall not be put to shame because of the deeds by which you have rebelled against me; for then I will remove from your midst your proudly exultant ones, and you shall no longer be haughty in my holy mountain. [12]But I will leave in your midst a people humble and lowly. They shall seek refuge in the name of the LORD, [13]those who are left in Israel; they shall do no injustice and speak no lies, nor shall there be found in their mouth a deceitful tongue. For they shall graze and lie down, and none shall make them afraid." [14]Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! [15]The LORD has taken away the judgments against you; he has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall never again fear evil. [16]On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: "Fear not, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak. [17]The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. [18]I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival, so that you will no longer suffer reproach. [19]Behold, at that time I will deal with all your oppressors. And I will save the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth. [20]At that time I will bring you in, at the time when I gather you together; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes," says the LORD.
