Zephaniah 1:12 ” At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are complacent, who are like wine left on its dregs, who think, ‘The Lord will do nothing, either good or bad.’ “

Just like wine left undisturbed to age, the people of Jerusalem had become smug and proud thinking God wasn’t watching. Isaiah 29:15 warned of this insolence, “Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, ‘Who sees us? Who will know?’ ” Their compliancy had gotten to the point that they felt the Lord didn’t see or care about anything they did…that He had forsaken the land and they were free to do whatever they desired…even to the point of arrogantly boasting, Can God judge through such darkness? But it tells us in this Scripture that God did see all they were doing and soon He would be making a thorough inquiry with no one escaping from His divine scrutiny….the glaring and harsh light of His judgment searching the spirit of all men to the innermost being. (Proverbs 20:27)
