What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
1 The word of the Lord which came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hezekiah, in the days of aJosiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
2 “I will 1utterly consume everything
From the face of the land,”
Says the Lord;
3 “I bwill consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens,
The fish of the sea,
And the 2stumbling blocks along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the 3land,”
Says the Lord.
And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
4I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place,
5 Those dwho worship the host of heaven on the housetops;
Those who worship and swear oaths by the Lord,
6 fThose who have turned back from following the Lord,
And ghave not sought the Lord, nor inquired of Him.”
7 hBe silent in the presence of the Lord God;
iFor the day of the Lord is at hand,
For jthe Lord has prepared a sacrifice;
He has 7invited His guests.
In the day of the Lord’s sacrifice,
That I will punish kthe princes and the king’s children,
And all such as are clothed with foreign apparel.
All those who lleap over the threshold,
Who fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.
“The sound of a mournful cry from mthe Fish Gate,
A wailing from the Second Quarter,
And a loud crashing from the hills.
For all the merchant people are cut down;
All those who handle money are cut off.
That I will search Jerusalem with lamps,
And punish the men
pWho say in their heart,
‘The Lord will not do good,
Nor will He do evil.’
And their houses a desolation;
They shall build houses, but not inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards, but qnot drink their wine.”
14 rThe great day of the Lord is near;
It is near and hastens quickly.
The noise of the day of the Lord is bitter;
There the mighty men shall cry out.
15 sThat day is a day of wrath,
A day of trouble and distress,
A day of devastation and desolation,
A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of ttrumpet and alarm
Against the fortified cities
And against the high towers.
And they shall uwalk like blind men,
Because they have sinned against the Lord;
Their blood shall be poured out like dust,
And their flesh like refuse.”
18 vNeither their silver nor their gold
Shall be able to deliver them
In the day of the Lord’s wrath;
But the whole land shall be devoured
By the fire of His jealousy,
For He will make speedy riddance
Of all those who dwell in the land.
