Zephaniah 2:2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
The decree is the covenant that brings about a false peace under the rule of the one-world government. The signing of the covenant will be the opening gun of the Tribulation Period.
God is telling us that we should be seeking the LORD before that day, and if we do see that day and have not yet sought the Lord, then before that day passes we must repent and seek Him. For the fierce anger of the Lord will soon begin.
Be meek before the Lord, and seek the LORD’s righteousness. It may be that the LORD will hide you in the day of His anger.
