Where Will You Be On The Day Of The LORD?
"Behold, the day of the LORD cometh ... And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west"
The "day of the LORD" is a term that is used throughout the Holy Scriptures. Note first and foremost that, as is plainly stated in the verses below, the complete term is "the day of the LORD Jesus" (see The Identity Of The LORD God and The LORD God Our Saviour). The "day of the LORD" has been (as we will read), and is, as it will be ultimately fulfilled, when the Messiah will reckon with those who defy His Law by refusing to repent and accept His offer of Salvation by living the right way (see Which Way Is Right And Left? and Grace, Faith and The LORD's Forgiveness; also Strait And Straight and What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?).
"5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the LORD Jesus.
The "day of the LORD" will happen, in final fulfillment, at the time of the return of the LORD to establish His Kingdom of God on Earth, "And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east" (see The First And Last Nation and The Patriotism Prophecy).
"14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
Many of the true prophets of the LORD were given to write of the day of the LORD, in describing the wrath that came upon the corrupt kingdoms of Israel and Judah in history (see A History Of Israel's United And Divided Kingdoms), as well as the future time when the LORD will accomplish His final Judgment upon all nations.
From Isaiah (see also What Did The Messiah Read From Isaiah That Day?):
"2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:" (Isaiah 2:10-12 KJV)
From Jeremiah (see also A Faithful Winner Among Unrepentant Losers):
"46:10 For this is the day of the LORD GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates." (Jeremiah 46:10 KJV)
From Ezekiel (see also The Soul That Repents Shall Live):
"30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day! 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen." (Ezekiel 30:2-3 KJV)
From Amos (see also Amos: A Shepherd Of Tekoa):
"5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. 5:19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?" (Amos 5:18-20 KJV)
From Obadiah (see also Obadiah: A Prophecy Of Edom):
"1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head." (Obadiah 1:15 KJV)
From Zephaniah (see also Zephaniah: A Day Of The Trumpet):
"1:14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. 1:15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, 1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. 1:17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land." (Zephaniah 1:14-18 KJV)
From Malachi (see also Malachi: Behold The Day Cometh):
"4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:1-6 KJV)
From Joel, as the Book of Joel begins:
"1:1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
Fact Finder: What is the primary reason that some misled people say that they don't need to repent to be saved? What makes them think that wrong is right?
