Once upon a time in the land of Judah, there was a man named Zephaniah. He was a prophet who spoke God's words to His people. In his visions, Zephaniah saw the Lord coming with great power and anger. The Lord would punish the wicked people of Judah for their sins.

The first thing Zephaniah saw in his vision was the Lord standing at the entrance of the temple. He was ready to judge all the people of Judah. The Lord promised to remove the wicked from among His people and bring them to destruction. Those who worshiped other gods would be punished severely.

Next, Zephaniah saw a great day of the Lord coming. It would be a day of wrath and fierce anger. The Lord would destroy all the false idols and the cities where they were worshipped. He would also punish those who were unjust and oppressed the poor.

Then, Zephaniah saw a call to repentance. The Lord was not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. He urged His people to seek Him and turn away from their wicked ways. Those who did so would be saved.

Finally, Zephaniah saw the Lord gathering His people together. He would bring them back to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. The Lord promised to be with them and protect them. They would be a holy people, set apart for God's purposes. And so, the story of Zephaniah continues, a call to repentance and a promise of restoration from the Lord.
