Meaning of “Day of the Lord” Part 2

It is important to understand first, that the “day of the Lord” (DOTL) often represents a span of time, not a singular day or one single event. We’ll look to Scripture in a moment to provide some examples. Note also that there are many different names for this period, depending upon the person called upon by the Lord to write a section of His Word. The phrase DOTL (or its equivalent) is used some 20 or so times in the Old Testament. Because of that, it is imperative to thoroughly research each usage to determine if/how they tie together.

Meaning of “Day of the Lord” Part 1

The “day of the Lord” is another one of those subjects that people like to discuss and even argue over. For some, it means a certain length of time when the Lord will do a specific work. In that case, while it culminates in the return of the Lord on a specific “day,” the phrase “day of the Lord” includes other events as well. For instance, some believe that the Tribulation period begins the “day of the Lord” because we can clearly see from the opening of the very first seal in Revelation 6 (which also coincides with the beginning of the Tribulation period; see also Daniel 9:27), that the Lamb (the Lord) is in full charge and He is pouring out His wrath as He opens each of those seals.

Christians Preparing for the Worst

The Tribulation will be a time of unparalleled evil and the persecution of Christians will be a daily experience throughout the entire globe, including America. God will use the 144,000 Jewish evangelists of Revelation 7 to be His messengers spreading the gospel far and wide. It is not coincidence that after the 144,000 are sealed, we read starting in Revelation 7:9 that there are multitudes of people became martyrs during the Tribulation.

Understanding Daniel Relies on Jude and Enoch? Really?

It is the same with Daniel 9. Gabriel is literally speaking about a total of 70 “sevens.” The word sevens is a determiner, but without knowing what it determines, we cannot know for certain what the total amount would be. But since the entirety of Daniel 9 is dealing with years, then that context gives us the information we need to know. Gabriel tells Daniel that 70 “sevens” (of years) will be applied to the Jewish people. Once we understand this, it is simply a matter of multiplying 70 (the length of time) times seven sets of years to equal 490. We know that the sevens is joined to years because of how perfectly the first 7 “sevens” (“weeks”) plus the 62 “sevens” (“weeks”) works out from the beginning point of Artaxerxes’ decree to rebuilt Jerusalem in 445 BC (cf. Nehemiah 2:1-8). If the first 69 “sevens of years” works out perfectly, then obviously the final or 70th “seven” is the same amount of time – one seven represented by one seven-year period. I’m amazed at many commentators change the length of this last week.

Dishonesty of a PostTribber Comes Home to Roost

The fact that he portrayed me as not having the ability and biblical knowledge to respond to him is deceitful. It is duplicitous. In effect, he is LYING to those who read his blog (if anyone reads it, that is). Since he would not allow my response, I chose to create an article out of it in the above linked article. For more information, I suggest reading that article before this one.

My goal in pointing this out is to simply show him for what he is – filled with deceit. Instead of allowing me to respond to him and allowing those who may come to his site to read it as well – he chose to not even give me that opportunity. Instead, deceitfully, he pretended as though I had never responded, which was not true.

I pray that the Lord will help him see his own duplicity. He will certainly be better off for it and the end result will be that the Lord will be glorified. It will be a win-win situation. Pray for him, will you?

Will the PHYSICAL Jewish Temple Be Rebuilt During the Tribulation?

Because the average Jew is lost today, those living in Israel want to see the Temple rebuilt. They believe – again, wrongly – that through the reestablished sacrificial system, they will once again be able to draw close to God. It will only be through that – building the Temple and establishing sacrifices again – that they will see how wrong they are, especially when the coming Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies and literally sits down inside it declaring himself to BE God as Antiochus did in 168 BC. It will be the same mistake repeated! This is also the fulfillment of Satan’s five “I will” promises in Isaiah 14 as we’ve discussed in other articles. Satan, working through Antichrist, will RULE the world and will do his level best to make himself to appear to be LIKE God to humanity. Titus wasn’t even close to being the coming Antichrist. This future Antichrist will rise among the ten “kings” (Revelation 17) and once he does, will “uproot” three of them (by killing them) and will become ruler over them. But this cannot happen until the world becomes ONE under a new world order. We’re not there yet, though it’s coming rapidly.

Rapture, Increasing Lawlessness, and the Tribulation, Part 3

The Rapture is PreTrib in nature. It will happen prior to the beginning of the Tribulation. It needs to do so in order that lawlessness might become truly lawless. This will help pave the way in global society to receive the “man of sin” who will be the embodiment of lawlessness himself. It is not so much that the world itself will become more evil through malicious crimes and lack of concern for other humans. That will certainly be part of it. The lawlessness that Paul speaks of is the result of global society doing everything they can to rid themselves of the belief in God and His absolute truth.

As long as the true Church is in society, the Holy Spirit holds things in check, not allowing this world to become as lawless as it will be once the true Church is gone. Once the true Church is gone, so too, is a major avenue of influence that the Holy Spirit uses to literally keep Satan at bay. Lawlessness in the form of a society being thoroughly “anti-God” will become so emboldened leading up to the Tribulation (after the Rapture) that as Jesus said, “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will,” (Matthew 24:21).
