|Minor Prophets: Major Messages
The following summaries draw and expand on the outline given in Summary Exposition of the Prophets and Psalms.
The last judgment will come upon those who are in evil. What is within the heart of evil is exposed when Divine presence sheds its light. Nothing shall be hidden nor shall darkness cover it anymore, for the Divine Presence sees everything. Those who are in a perverted church will not endure.
But for the faithful who trust in the Lord, there will be Divine protection. Their falsities from ignorance will be accepted and removed by the Lord.
The advent of the Lord will bring about a new church from Him. His advent will not be a mild entrance. His presence will cause a violent commotion. There will be a shaking and upheaval, and the things of evil will be taken away from the evil people. They will lose their power to hurt or destroy the holy things of the Lord’s new church.
Those who falsified and adulterated the Word will perish in hell. The extent of their adulteration will be uncovered. All of the reasoning they pull from the scientifics and historical precedence will not stand in the presence of the Lord. All of their reasonings will not save them because there is and was no soundness in them. Their shepherds and nobles were asleep and resting in dust. They will be scattered, and there will be no one to gather them.
The righteous in the Lord’s sight will clap their hands and rejoice that the church of Nineveh will no longer afflict or hurt them anymore because the Great Healer has brought His Reformation to the church. We have a sure promise from the Lord that is borne out in these words written in the book of Revelation:
"And He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away…
Behold, I make all things new." Revelation 21: 3-5.
