There is much talk among Christians of most and every denomination of every Church. There is talk of “The Day of the Lord’. Why in fact for centuries this has been much of the talk about the Bibles scriptures concerning the Day of the Lord. It's more important than Wood stock. More important than a presidential or Monarchy inauguration put in office.. It's more important than even a new born baby entering into this world. For the Day of the Lord is all the talk among Christians. We today so ever in these times speak often of this day.

 

Yet even so every day life can be distracting at most. With all these things our minds may drift away from seeking to know this day. It is therefore good for Christians to assemble in one place or many places of group participation to discuss many Bible issues at hand. Even if we know or not know the answers we need to continue to encourage one another in our Faith. So for this reason I wanted to assemble here among us Worthy posters with the topic’ The Day of the Lord”.

 

We

can have a friendly discussion each of us sharing an aspect on the Day of the Lord for there is much to say of these things. It is what I believe what we seek after to know of the Lords Day. When we assemble together and discuss we as the Body help to form the full work of God’s glory, His workmanship us His creation.

 

I say this for some know less, and some know more, some have more faith, and some have little but whether small or great we post together in kindness making all feel welcome. For some get intimidated to post feeling if they don’t present enough others will or may interact wrongly just to learn this Christian is new and learning growing in their faith. That's when we make it more comfortable at ease. They will open their hearts and share their faith growing along and everyone feeling included.

 

This the Day of the Lord is for all believers in every nation, tongue, and language. All believers will see the Day of the Lord. Unfortunately sad news unbelievers will also see the Day of the Lord in a way we nor God desires anyone should perish.

 

Never the less to make this topic complete unbelievers also must be at some point discussed in the Day of the Lord as the rare both good and bad consequences. Some unto righteous others to contempt Daniel chapter 12 verse 2. But when we discuss with one another we make ourselves more prepared and ready for that day. Even as Paul not only wrote letter to the Churches but even spent day and night working and teaching them these things that they will also nourish in the ways of God.

 

I’m sorry to say this but briefly I believe in the future all of us are going to be scattered away from Worthy Forums. When the end draws closer we will be monitored even more. These forums could either be watched closely in the future or even be against the law. So as Franklin Graham said in 2010 outside of the Pentagon as his invitation to speak was rejected he said this. Let us pray now.

 

Let us share the Gospel while we still have time to do so. Let’s not wait until it is too late and we can no longer be able to share with others as we can do now. Yes I see a day that I will remember . . thinking remember we used to post on Worthy. Now we can’t do so. He will make war with the Saints. We will see over time how technology will play an important role keeping an eye on everyone including maybe almost impossible to assemble during that time. For now is our chance while we have the time to speak of the Day of the Lord together. .

 

I’ll start off with some questions to try to get this topic going and we can eventually try to share every aspect of the Day of the Lord. Here are some questions 1. What is the Day of the Lord? Describe this at best.. using scripture along may be most helpful.. 2. What signs are we to look for to know the Day of the Lord is approaching our way? 3. How long actually is the Day of the Lord? Is it one day or more than one day? 4. How should we get ready for the Day of the Lord and how should we witness to others to share of the Lord’s day? 5 How do we personally feel waiting for this day to come upon us? Are some exited? Scared? Confident? Unsure? Happy or sad or anything?

 

Please take note all questions do not have to be answered. These questions are merely to help get the topic rolling. For I am sure once this takes off there will be plenty and much to say. For I myself am looking forward to what others will say of the Day of the Lord.

Have a blessed day all at Worthy both reader and posters alike. Who would like to start this off? And note that rule... the last person becomes the spoiled egg does not apply.  :mgcheerful:   But yes we can still keep our child like ways. :biggrinflip:

Often us Christians think that the end-times arrive at Satan's pace. We watch to see how Satan is orchestrating politics to usher in the New World Order and the antichrist. But this isn't the biblical position, Jesus is clear that the end wont come until the gospel is preached to all nations, and so its the church's task to close up this age by preaching the gospel. God is waiting for the gospel to be preached:

 

2 Peter 3 : The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.

 

You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming

 

So when does the great tribulation start? Those 3.5 years of Satan's intensity start with the victory of the gospel, Satan comes crashing down to earth for 3.5 years of persecution of the saints:

Rev 12: They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. Therefore rejoice, you heavens  and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea,  because the devil has gone down to you!

He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short

'

I believe us Christians will have our relief from troubles on the day of the Lord: 

2 Thess 1: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels

 

I believe us Christians will be resurrected at the last trumpet:

1 Cor 15: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

 

Here's another resurrection at a trumpet call, its probably also the last trumpet. We will be resurrected on the day of the Lord:

Matthew 24:  “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

 

Zechariah 14 and Rev 16 and Rev 19 describe armies attacking Jerusalem on the day of the Lord, here's the Zech 14 version:

v2  I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it

v5  Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

 

So in conclusion, after 3.5 years of persecution all nations will come against Jerusalem, then the day of the Lord will come, the resurrection will occur at the time the antichrist comes to his end (Dan 11:45 - Dan 12:2), at that time the last trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised. 

 

Daniel 11/12: He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered

http://en.wikipedia....Day_of_the_Lord :)

 

The Day of the Lord is a biblical term and theme used in both the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) and the New Testament. A related expression is the Great Day as in "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." which appears in both Old and New Testaments.[1] The meaning of the phrases may sometimes refer to temporal events such as the invasion of a foreign army and capture of a city but it may also be related to predicted events in a later age of earth's history including the final judgment[2] and World to Come. The expression may also have an extended meaning in referring to both the first and second comings of Jesus Christ. This appears much in the first chapter of Isaiah.

When I think about the Day of the Lord coming and seeing threads like yours GW..it makes me more aware that I need to make sure for 1 I am paying more closer attention to the signs that we need to look for.

 

Also like you said we all need to gather together in a unity to discuss this day we are all looking forward to seeing.

 

The Day of the Lord is nothing like what we will ever see again in our lifetime..

It is going to be in the future and something everyone will see.

The Lord will come for every eye to see and his brightness will shine upon all.

 

Matthew 24 speaks of the signs of the Son of Man Coming..

The Coming of the Son of Man

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

 

Matthew 24 best describes the topic as a whole I believe..

But to the question about how we should feel..I am in much anticipation and when it arrives I hope and pray that I am not ony prepared that

it will make him happy but also that I did everything he would want me to do.

It's funny; I am really longing for the Lord Jesus Christ to reveal Himself to me more and more all the time.  I used to be very afraid of the end times because of all the suffering to come, but now as I am, I am suffering in my longing to be with Jesus - all the more, seeing the days increase in evil; I just want Jesus to come back, and I have lost some of that fear of suffering because of how I am afflicted in my longing.  But I believe that that's what the Lord wants too.  His people to want Him.  Not just a way out of suffering.  The suffering will end when He comes.  Come Lord Jesus.

Blessings Everyone...

       When Gliding first told me about this thread,I thought,"Well,I don't know that I would have much to add ".....the reason I say this is because I don't really think too much on this Great Day but I do look more to 2 Peter3:11 & what kind of people ought you to be(as the day approaches)....It is funny but as a very small child I was so madly in love with Jesus that I gave alot of thought to Christs return & so longed for the day & to be with Him,ahh-the pure heart of a child & that "First Love".....it is no wonder Jesus said we have to be like the little children.....

          Sister Zion expressed how as a "babe in Christ"she used to fear end times and I believe that probably rings true for most of us.I know as  I was no longer a child & got caught up in the world I strayed from my"First Love"and was very fearful indeed of the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord.As I returned to my First Love I once again long to be with Him......What I fear is for the wicked that will only know this day as that of calamity and destruction.......their arms will go limp and all hearts will melt,perhaps these are the reasons for our tears that the Lord will wipe away..........

          I do think it is very important that we go out & preach the Gospel,this Day we know will not come until it has been preached to every nation............so I can only share with you that I honestly do not think much about it,I see the signs (as I think they are)and from the very beginning this Day has been approaching and it will be the most beautiful sight I could ever see when I see my Precious Jesus in the sky ........

                                                                                                         With love,in Christ-Kwik

I'm looking forward to the rapture.  By the time 'The Day of the Lord' arrives I'll already be in my glorified body returning with the Lord on his day.  It will be wonderful to finally see the wickedness of this world destroyed.  Seeing people I know that aren't saved going to their destruction won't be happy.  Even the prophet Amos says- Woe to you that desire the Day of the Lord.  Not going to be a pretty day...  Meeting Jesus in the sky is the rapture a distinct and different event 7 years prior.

 

Amos 5:17-19

Amplified Bible (AMP)

17 And in all vineyards there shall be wailing, for I will pass through the midst of you, says the Lord.

18 Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! Why would you want the day of the Lord? It is darkness and not light;

19 It is as if a man fled from a lion and a bear met him, or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall and a serpent bit him.

 

 

Jeremiah 46:10

But that day is a day of the Lord, the Lord of hosts—a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself on His adversaries. And the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiated and shall drink its fill of their blood; for the Lord, the Lord of hosts has a sacrifice [like that of a great sin offering] in the north country by the river Euphrates.

More than one "Day of the Lord"  such as 2 Peter 3:10 - But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.  The Heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

 

This day of the Lord is describing the preparation for a New Heaven and a New Earth.

 

The "day of the Lord" usually comes suddenly or is unexpected, like a thief in the night.

 

In Christ

Son Of Hell

 

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

 

SON Of Heaven

 

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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. 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. John 14:1-3

1 Thess. 5:9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us , that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

Luke 21:36 Watch, therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. (In context of Lukes' account of the end times).

1 Thess. 1:9-10 how your turned --to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus Who delivers us from the wrath to come.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things BEGIN to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."

We are also promised that all who seek to lead godly lives in Christ Jesus shall be persecuted.
We are promised horrible wars, famine, pestilences, and earthquakes before the wrath of God. So we are not promised a cake walk. But I do believe that born again Christians who keep on being filled with the Holy Spirit soas to walk in the Spirit, hear His voice and follow our Good Shepherd, are NOT destined to endure the wrath of God in the final 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation period. The snatching away of the Church seems to occur sometime at the beginning of or during the first 3 1/2 years. But we are not told when exactly He will come, only that He will come as a thief in the night, and that we should be ready and looking for Him.
There is also mention of the conversion of many during the wrath especially when the 3 witnesses in the streets of Jeruselem are resurrected. (This may even be telecasted to that people around the world witness it). There will be a final gathering of living believers who will inhabit Jeruselem for Christ's thousand year reign as discribed in Revelations 20. During that time satan will be bound, and then unleashed at the end. That is when the new heavens and new earth are revealed.

On the other hand, we are told in 2 Thess. 2 that day shall not come till the "falling away" comes first, and the "man of sin" is revealed, the son of perdition, who sits in the temple showing himself to be god.. Every eye will see Christ's return WITH His church and his angels to kill His adversaries with the breath of his mouth. The armies of the nations will be alligned against Him. This will be no surprise. He will arrive at the eastern gate of Jeruselem, we are told.
Using NKJV

Every year our pastor gives a prophecy update that tells how world events are falling into place and fulfilling Bible prohecies. It usually lasts 2-3 hours, and the events are happening so fast now that he can only use a few months of newspaper clippings and current events news. 15 years ago it was a years worth. So it is exciting to watch the day of the Lord approach. But all the more I pray that friends and family have their hearts ready for His coming.

This is my understanding of end times events and the Day of the Lord. They are, of course, subject to change as God sheds further light on my limited understanding of His Word.

To Argosy I know what you mean about watching Satan’s the Devil’s moves. I used to spend hours a day reading about any signs article Left Behind books how to determine this Antichrist. It does seem Satan holds the clock of time on what is happening now and what will happen in the future. We don’t seem to realize this will all happen in God’s time. It is why over the years of study of the Bible my views changed dramatically from one aspect to another. Simply scriptures alone prove me other wise from how I was taught. Left Behind version for example. I left those ways of understanding Prophecy End times.

 

To DRS thanks for the getting the Pedia version of the Day of the Lord. So the sun, moon, and stars really do have strong association with the Day of the Lord. Even Pedia takes recognition in that.

 

To Waiting Thanks for observations to keep ourselves vigilant as Jesus commands us” Take Heed” Therefore watch these things. To take watch is not an option to choose or not. It really is God’s commandment to do so only of course Believers who know what to watch for. But it did not mean Jesus said to keep CNN 24 hours disaster watch. :crazy:

 

 To Zion I am very touched by your words. You're not the only one for sure who has been scared in these things. O I really can admit I have had a lot of apocalyptic dreams. Some of them the rapture. Others the mark of the Beast. But I never had a dream where Jesus actually returned. But I have had Jesus in some of my dreams.

One Jesus was walking in the crowds and Jesus stumbled off his sandals. I seen Jesus falling and I just basically leaned my upper shoulder body weight and I grabbed his arm. I think simply that I did not want Jesus to fall. I woke up and I said I can’t believe this. ‘I helped Jesus?” How can that be? Jesus is supposed to be the one helping us. I think I was dreaming what it was like in Jesus day perhaps how people had disrespected him.

Personally God knows I don’t want anyone to slip on the ground. So honestly it was a reflex in my dream to save anyone who is falling.. But Jesus happened to be the one. I don't remember anything after that. I wish I knew how Jesus would react. But then it would be wrong to expect Jesus to say you helped me. So now I look at it as I should have done that. Imagine all the times God spared my life. My act only happened in a dream.

 

To Kwik. I am glad you are at peace now with God. Sounds to me no longer much that you are shaken or troubled in your mind. You are obeying the Thessalonian chapter 2 commandment do not be troubled or shaken in your mind. As Paul also wanted them to not be walking in terrific fear.

I think one important thing of the Day of the Lord is “ Be Right with God or get Left Behind’ I know that is a Tim La Hayes cliché. But really it is true. God wants us to be right with him and that helps us to make us ready for the Day of the Lord. God will judge our hearts and minds and that will mean more than anything when it comes to personal salivation.

I wish I had confidence as Kwik. But really I don’t.. I still feel some anxiety how bad the end times will be and how great this Judgment. But I guess I can say I have improved. I’m trying to plan some things out which has built some confidence to show I will be resisting or rather us the End time Beast system. So we are practicing right now how to resist this. I'm learning all the prophecy books as much as I can. When we have seen or heard these things taking place I know we're now in the Bible how far we have come along. I have created a somewhat radar as to how far we are now and how to recognize those signs.

As for Jesus kingdom witness post Matt 24:29 These are signs I won't want to miss if I or we are still alive then. .. will I be called ready for or faithful servant? I leave all judgment my own Life in the hands of God to where I should go in God’s Kingdom or out of His Kingdom according to His discernment. For that God knows our hearts better than we know our own..

Many say they are already saved with no doubt. But I say I don’t visibility see anyone's name in the Book of Life. It's not for me to know who is saved or not. I believe when we stand before God then we will know for certain..

But I do have a few friends like Joe and Janet, my guardian parents, role model Christians, married over 45 years, with 2 kids. One son teaching at church they believe will be saved. Yet it is still not my say. Let God declare these things on ‘The Day of The Lord’. :amen:

The phrase "day of the Lord" usually identifies events that take place at the end of history Isaiah 7:18-25.  and is often closely associated with the phrase "that day".Most people associate the day of the Lord with a period of time or a special day that will occur when God's will and purpose for His world and for mankind will be fullfilled.Some scholars believe that the day of the Lord will be a longer period of time than a single day-a period of time when Christ will reign throughout the world before He cleanses the heaven and earth a preparation for the eternal state of all mankind.Other scholars believe the day of the Lord will be an  instantaneous event when Christ returns to earth to redeem His faithful believers and send unbelievers to eternal damnation.

Besides being a time of judgment,it will also be a time of salvation as God will deliver the remnant of Israel,full filling His promise that "all of Israel will be saved" Romans 11:26,forgiving their sins and restoring His chosen people to the land He promised to Abraham Isaiah 10:27;Jeremiah 30:19-31,40.

The ultimate or final fullfillment of the prophecies concerning the day of the Lord will come at the end of history when God,with wonderous powers,will punish evil and fullfill His promises.

Shalom, all.

 

A day of the LORD is different than the Day of the LORD. A day of the LORD is the day when God has reached His breaking point and lowers the boom on those who have been ignoring His long-suffering and His offer of grace. This kind of day of the LORD is a day of judgment on a people for their sins. Many of the prophets in the Tanakh (OT) speak of such a day for the northern Kingdom of Isra'el - the "Ten Tribes" - when Sennacherib carted them off to Assyria, and a separate such day for the southern Kingdom of Y'hudah or Judah - The two (or three) tribes left - when Nebuchadnezzar took them captive to Babylon.

 

The ULTIMATE Day of the LORD is different than these "last straw" days. THAT Day of the LORD will be a thousand-year Day! It will be a Day in which the LORD returns to Isra'el and establishes His Kingdom in the hands of His Anointed, Yeshua`, and reigns over Y'hudah, Isra'el, and the world THROUGH Him! Not until the END of that Day will He punish the unjust after the judgment and sentencing of the Great White Throne Judgment.

 

Therefore, not all prophecies about the "day of the Lord" are indeed about the end of the age. One must carefully consider the context of any verses that mention a "day of the Lord." Furthermore, one must understand that the "day of the Lord" is NEVER about "Sunday!"

 

The Day of the Lord

I guess what concerns me most is the deception.  I don't want to be deceived.

Not for those who are God's people.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4

For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord [a]will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then [b]destruction [c]will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you [d]like a thief;

 

Amen for that.  So keep watching, praying and studying so that you are not one of those who are left in darkness.

To Argosy I know what you mean about watching Satan’s the Devil’s moves. I used to spend hours a day reading about any signs article o Waiting Thanks for observations to keep ourselves vigilant as Jesus commands us” Take Heed” Therefore watch these things. To take watch is not an option to choose or not. It really is God’s commandment to do so only of course Believers who know what to watch for. But it did not mean Jesus said to keep CNN 24 hours disaster watch. :crazy:

To Kwik. I am glad you are at peace now with God. Sounds to me no longer much that you are shaken or troubled in your mind. You are obeying the Thessalonian chapter 2 commandment do not be troubled or shaken in your mind. As Paul also wanted them to not be walking in terrific fear.
I think one important thing of the Day of the Lord is “ Be Right with God or get Left Behind’ I know that is a Tim La Hayes cliché. But really it is true. God wants us to be right with him and that helps us to make us ready for the Day of the Lord. God will judge our hearts and minds and that will mean more than anything when it comes to personal salivation.
I wish I had confidence as Kwik. But really I don’t.. I still feel some anxiety how bad the end times will be and how great this Judgment. But I guess I can say I have improved. I’m trying to plan some things out which has built some confidence to show I will be resisting or rather us the End time Beast system. So we are practicing right now how to resist this. I'm learning all the prophecy books as much as I can. When we have seen or heard these things taking place I know we're now in the Bible how far we have come along. I have created a somewhat radar as to how far we are now and how to recognize those signs.
As for Jesus kingdom witness post Matt 24:29 These are signs I won't want to miss if I or we are still alive then. .. will I be called ready for or faithful servant? I leave all judgment my own Life in the hands of God to where I should go in God’s Kingdom or out of His Kingdom according to His discernment. For that God knows our hearts better than we know our own..
Many say they are already saved with no doubt. But I say I don’t visibility see anyone's name in the Book of Life. It's not for me to know who is saved or not. I believe when we stand before God then we will know for certain..



Only the Father knows what day the Lord will come for His church. That part has little or nothing to do with satan.
We are told in Luke to pray that we be counted worthy to escape all the things that are to come upon the earth.
The reason that you have fear is that you are spending your time focusing on the enemy and what he might do. Instead focus on God and what He does on our behalf. If Christ lives in you and you in Him, He will give you the courage you need when the time comes. Not now. You can only walk on the water as Peter did by keeping your eyes on Jesus. As soon as your look at the world and the dangers around you you will sink. So stop it!
You will know if you are saved by the reassurance of the Holy Spirit in your heart crying Daddy! to God our Father. When we live in communion with our Lord, we don't have fear about our salvation. We have already fully surrendered our lives to God.

To have faith we read the scriptures, especially the New Testament Gospels and Epistles. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. So read them out loud if you must.
But stop reading LaHay and all the other books. They don't seem to be building you up in the faith and encouraging you. Ignore books about the enemy. You are far too preoccupied with the end times portion. Just totally surrender your life to Christ to do with as He wills. Learn to recognize the voice of the Lord and obey His voice. It will never contradict scripture. It is full of love and reassurance. You need to prepare by learning to walk in the Holy Spirit, and by continually being refilled with the Holy Spirit. By doing this you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh and your faith will also grow.

Cling to God's excedingly great and precious promises and grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Read Ephesians 8 and Phillippeans 4. God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Tim. 1:7 Above everything else, learn to love the unlovable as God does, saying Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.

God does not give us the grace and courage to meet hard situation before we need it. He gives it all during our lives as we face daily situations while leaning on His grace and strength. It is like a muscle that grows. So learn to live a godly life in Christ Jesus now. No matter how we die, should it be today while walking accross the street or in the future, pray that we may glorify God in our lives as well as in our deaths.
