Future? Now!
Zephaniah/John 1-4

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

2:1-3 Gather together and pray, you shameless nation. Gather while there is still time, before judgment begins and your opportunity is blown away like chaff. Act now, before the fierce fury of the LORD falls and the terrible day of the LORD’s anger begins. Beg the LORD to save you–all you who are humble, all you who uphold justice. Walk humbly and do what is right. Perhaps even yet the LORD will protect you from his anger on that day of destruction.

NT

1:1-5 In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. He was in the beginning with God. He created everything there is. Nothing exists that he didn’t make. Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone. The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

:15 John pointed him out to the people. He shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, Someone is coming who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before I did.”  Jesus Words
