Once again my inbox contains a number of questions about Egypt, just like it did when former Pres. Hosni Mubarak was ousted in Feb. 2011 and a year later when Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was elected President.
The current focus for rumination is on Egypt and the chaos that doesn’t yet rival that of what has been happening in Syria, but which is obviously building toward a similar level of trouble.
Zephaniah is speaking of what I believe, we call the Great Tribulation that John also wrote of in Revelation. We have been leading up this time of God’s wrath for a long time.
