When God Consumes

Sometime after the reign of Josiah, the Lord promised to do things to the land of Israel that if they had realized what would happen, surely, they would have repented in sackcloth and ashes. He promised,
“I will utterly consume everything
From the face of the land,”
Says the LORD;
“I will consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens,
The fish of the sea,
And the stumbling blocks along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the land,”
Says the LORD.
(Zephaniah 1:2, 3)
The destruction of Judah at the hands of the Babylonians would resemble the destruction of Noah’s Flood! When man sins often creation has to suffer with him, just as in the days of Noah, so also in the days to follow Josiah.
A day still awaits the judgment of God when He shall consume more than what He did in the days of Noah or the days of the Babylonians, but the Lord God of heaven shall consume the entire planet.
Are you prepared for that day?
