Zephaniah 2:1‑3:20: "Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation NOT desired (the present day state of Israel); Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD's anger come upon you.

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek (Israelites) of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant (here God is telling us that He will destroy the Jews out of Palestine and Old Jerusalem).

And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity (our Israel people have been captive to the Jews, through their use of usury and money).

I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border (Even now the enemy is gathering at our borders, as you well know).

Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation (they will be utterly destroyed and none will be left - these are the Jews left in the Middle East): the residue (those Israelites that are left after the great day of the Lord) of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.

This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts (the Jews are even today bragging about their exploits and rubbing their dung in the face of God's Israel people).

The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and men (Adamites) shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen.

Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain by my sword (the blacks will also be destroyed). And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like a wilderness. And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all the beasts of the nations: both the cormorant and the bittern shall lodge in the upper lintels of it; their voice shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be in the thresholds; for he shall uncover the cedar work.

This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none beside me: how is she become a desolation, a place for beasts to lie down in! every one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his hand.

Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city (this is the United States and its Israel people)! She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God. Her princes within her are roaring lions (can there be any doubt that the politicians and bureaucrats are like roaring lions and tearing apart any Israelites they wish at the present time); her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow (nothing could describe the judges in the land today).

Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law (the clergy of organized religion and others have told our people that the Law of God has been done away with, and they constantly lie to the people and do not warn them of the judgment to come because of their sins).

The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not (look at the revelations about the president, but no one seems to care, the revelations about the injustice and murder being done against our people by the ATF, FBI, and other federal agencies as they murder and destroy our Israel people); but the unjust knoweth no shame (is there any shame for the murders committed at Ruby Ridge, Idaho; at Waco, Texas; over flight TWA800; the Oklahoma City Bombing, and etc.).

I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant (the nations of the United Nations are going to be destroyed by God and His Israel people).

I said, Surely thou (Israel) wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings (our people are killing unborn babies by the thousands, running to lie with their brothers wife, murder, rape, stealing, letting the Queers run the streets as if they were normal people, and other degenerate, perverted things without number).

Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms (we can clearly see that God is gathering the nations of the United Nations together against God's Israel people to destroy them, but they will be destroyed by Almighty God instead), to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia (South American Israelites) my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering. (from here on God is telling of the blessing He will pour out upon His Israel people after the destruction of the Jews and all those who support them and help them in their evil and iniquity) In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.

I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD. The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.

The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.

Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD."
