The Day of the Lord: Brief Expositions of Zephaniah and Obadiah
In this examination of the books of Zephaniah and Obadiah, Dr. Webber explores the exhortation of God as spoken through His prophets to His people and all the nations of the world. We see our covenant-keeping God, Who punishes the nations for their iniquity with the goal of saving them if they repent – and then ultimately bears their punishment Himself. The cause and depth of the destruction are revealed and God’s promises of rebuke and destruction are sure and fulfilled, just as His promises of spiritual restoration are. The Day of the Lord is a vivid picture of that day being both dreadful and merciful in one: restoration and salvation for God’s chosen remnant, and decided destruction for those who rebelled against God’s commands and harmed God’s people. Addressing the apostasy, idolatry, moral and ethical corruption and faithlessness of both God’s people and the other nations, this work is a wake-up call to believers to continue to walk diligently with our living God, Who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
