Understanding "The Day of the Lord"
"You know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."
6-19-17, Chuck Steele [Excerpted*] -- The phrase “day of the Lord” usually identifies events that take place at the end of history. One key to understanding these phrases is to note that they always identify a span of time during which God personally intervenes in history, directly or indirectly, to accomplish some specific aspect of His plan. To better understand God’s timing regarding certain events which are about to take place the following verses enlighten us:
There's unmistakable clarity as to who the ‘day of the Lord’ is intended. Its purpose is to ‘destroy sinners’ and it's ‘the time of the heathen.’ The day of the Lord will be accompanied by God's wrath and fierce anger. That leaves out all born again believers who have repented of our sins asking Jesus to be our Lord and Savior. We have been cleansed and have received the gift of eternal life with Him.
Since we understand that the Rapture (or the “catching away of the believers”) is what ushers in the terrible ‘day of the Lord,’ it’s time to make our preparations for its coming. If you don't know the Messiah Jesus Christ ... earnestly pray for forgiveness turning your life over to Him. You will be born again.
“Jesus said, marvel not that I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3,7
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1
