THE DAY OF THE LORD. I believe this has to do with Israel & the nations & that it is invariably connected with the wrath of God poured out in judgment on an unbelieving world. I see that it refers to that period from the termination of `The Day of Christ,` through the tribulation and the Millennium & terminating with the creation of the New Heavens & earth which I believe precludes `The Day of God.` ……I…..(Day of Christ)…….I…………(Day of the Lord)………..I….(Day of God)………….> `For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For while they say, “Peace & safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light…` (1 Thess. 5: 2 – 5) `But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, & the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth & the works that are in it will be burned up. ` (2 Peter 3: 10) The Lord – Gk. `kurios` meaning supreme in authority – God, Lord, master. Now before the Day of the Lord, I believe there will be some Preliminary Events. The first I see, is the lining up of the nations. I will present my thoughts & then see what you think.
