God's sweeping judgement will come on those that have turned back from following the Lord God for refusing to go down God's track God issued various declarations of I wills showing His authority over HIs creation the hand of God will strike down idolatry hating this sin through every nation What are the consequences of life? life without God and all His grace the folly of man takes them off track God's wisdom rejected as man hides his face Swept away by God in judgement for turning back from Him to follow mankind seeks not after God at all having little faith being so hollow The good news is you can escape obey the Lord and receive His son go His way follow His every step then your future's safe forever won ( "The word of the Lord that came to Zephaniah the son of Cushi, son of Gedaliah, son of Amariah, son of Hezekiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah. “I will utterly sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord. “I will sweep away man and beast; I will sweep away the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, and the rubble with the wicked. I will cut off mankind from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord. “I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off from this place the remnant of Baal and the name of the idolatrous priests along with the priests, those who bow down on the roofs to the host of the heavens, those who bow down and swear to the Lord and yet swear by Milcom, those who have turned back from following the Lord, who do not seek the Lord or inquire of him.”) Zephaniah 1: 1-6 (ESV)
