Zephaniah was a minor prophet in the old testiment of the holy bible
In Chapter 3:8-20 God purifies the True Remnant.
While many have said they will destroy Israel through the centries going back to the beginning of the hate for Israel and to the present and Future... GOD Will never let this happen WITHOUT HIS PLAN!
Israel will always play a role in the world as it has today, many prophecies have been fufilled and manny have yet to happen that are written... no matter what, no matter how small no matter how much love or hate for Israel, it will live on... and yes a 3rd Temple will be built... just a matter of WHEN not if...
Ultimate Supremacy of Israel
Zephaniah 3:9-20 (KJV)
9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent.
10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering.
11 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.
12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord.
13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.
16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
18 I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.
19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord.

The Pretribulation Rapture has been a discussion
and even a debate for quite some time….
My Lords Ministries believe in the Pretribulation Rapture for simple reasons
- We don’t believe God will leave his Church on earth during the 7 Year Tribulation period during his wrath
- God Almighty uses ATTENTION Getters, just like the Miracles Jesus Christ performed, God almighty will use the Rapture as his final attention getter for the lost who go through the tribulation to be given 1 last chance to turn to Christ as their Savior and Lord.
- NO ONE KNOWS THE TIME OR DAY
- Jesus Christ will come Like a Thief in the Night
- Jesus Christ is Preparing a Manson for us who believe and have faith in him
From part of a John Piper sermon.
(John Piper's Sermons) All pre-tribulationists believe that the man of lawlessness will be revealed after the rapture, during the great tribulation. In fact, they say that according to verses 6—7 the restrainer, which holds back the appearance of the man of lawlessness, is the Holy Spirit in the church, so that when the church is raptured out of the world, the man of lawlessness will be released. In other words, the church will not be here,
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 1 (Matt 24:36-45)
(KJV) 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
