God Sings when Evil is Defeated

My Bible reading for today (9/24/18) was Zephaniah 1 – 3.  I am sharing this with you from September 24, 2015.

I have never thought much about it until this morning reading the prophet Zephaniah; but God does sing.  I would think that He is a masterful singer, because He would be the Master of music.

Hear the words of the prophet Zephaniah:

“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.” Zephaniah 3:14-17 (KJV)

God, the LORD may not be singing at the present moment; except maybe every time one of His own rejoice in Him, and glorify His name; but the singing He does which these verses speak of is when all evil has been put away.

Reading the prophet’s writing is not an easy task.  Judgment, wrath, and the anger of the LORD is seen through out the three chapters; but it is in dealing with the sins of His people and the sins of the whole world. The “Day of the LORD” is the theme through out the prophecy; a day in which all earth dwellers need to be aware is coming.

When evil is totally, and finally put away God will be singing, and joying over His people with song.  Jesus the Christ is Song with the perfect notes.  He will reign.
