December 17, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read one chapter of Revelation, the last chapter of Zephaniah and the first chapter of Haggai.

December 17: Revelation 8, Zephaniah 3, Haggai 1 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Revelation 8 describes the precursors to the great tribulation with the opening of the seventh seal and the sounding of the trumpets. It begins with an earthquake. First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck, Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck, Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck, Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck. One ecological disaster after another.

Zephaniah 3. Jerusalem is full of wickedness but there remains a faithful Remnant and they will rejoice in God’s faithfulness, restoring His people.

Haggai 1 is about the right priorities. God had commanded the inhabitants of Jerusalem to rebuild His house.  When pointed out their wrongful ways the people obeyed.
